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.

roasted red pepper dip

for a great football game day appetizer, check out any of Ina garten's cookbooks.  today, i selected a dip from one of her earliest books, and adapted the recipe to ingredients in my pantry.

i adjusted her sun dried tomato dip into a roasted red pepper dip for use on pita crisps. 

1/2 cup roasted red peppers from a jar
8 ounces low fat cream cheese at room temperature
1/2 cup low fat canola mayonnaise
1/2 cup light sour cream
salt and pepper to taste
chopped green onions for decoration

in a mini food processor, mix red peppers, cream cheese, mayo, sour cream and seasonings to taste.
process until smooth about 30 seconds.

the beautiful pink color is very attractive and complements the delicious taste of the dip  spoon the dip into a small container and top with sliced green onions as a garnish.  serve with homemade toasted pita crisps.
