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.

one of my favorite breakfast recipes has to be fruit crepes.  this crepe recipe is one of the best and comes from Martha's everyday food magazine.  as the crepes are made, they can be kept warm in the oven covered with foil.

here is the recipe:  mix together 1 cup flour, 2 teaspoons sugar, and 1/4 teaspoon salt. then add, 1 1/2 cups milk, 2 eggs, and 1 tablespoon melted margarine.

using a crepe pan on the stove top, melt 1/2 tablespoon of butter in the pan.  then pour a quantity of batter into the pan and swish to cover the pan.  cook the crepe about 1-2 minutes and then turn the crepe over.

continue until the crepes are complete, keeping them warm until serving.  serve with bananas, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries or sauteed apples.  dust with powdered sugar and top with whipped cream to serve.  the crepes could also be served with maple or fruit flavored syrup. the crepes can be served with fruit rolled into them, or can be folded into fourths with fruit placed on the top.
