Come along with me as I journal about my latest cooking and gardening adventures. Discover what grows in my zone five garden, and see what new recipes I try from my cookbook collection each week.

As I share recipes and information from my kitchen, I invite readers to comment and share ideas along with me in this blog. I am looking to increase followers to my blog, so that I may learn more about cooking and gardening.

Since moving to Midland, Michigan, I have been reading and researching many cooking journals, cookbooks and collected recipes from the past thirty years. Organizing pictures of gardens I enjoy has also been a joy for me, as I continue to learn about garden design and horticulture.

martha stewart entertaining

out in the bookstores this week is martha's new entertaining book.  i had to have this large six pound book of amazing photographs and outstanding entertaining menus. the book is organized in sections based on menus for different parties and holidays.  the photos of her homes and gardens are beautiful and show readers her vast supply of beautiful china and serving pieces.  the flowers and her garden photos are stunning.

the recipes for the meals are in the back of the book, separate from the photo stories which include details on how to plan the event along with table and party suggestions. some of my more favorite parties are the fourth of july party and the summer lunch on martha's picnic boat in maine.

i purchased this book on amazon.com, because the hefty price of $75 in the bookstores seemed a bit to much, even though i am known for my collection of lovely books.  check out the amazon price at:


this is a book totally worthy of the purchase.  i am already putting together my list of ingredients for several of the recipes for the holidays.
