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.

fresh mozzarella

for a variety of dishes or as a stand alone cheese with summer sliced tomatoes, fresh mozzarella should be a regular choice for weekly grocery shoppers.  this mozzarella cheese is nothing like the processed shredded cheese that most grab as they run through the grocery aisles.

this fresh cheese is moist, flavorful and melts beautifully in many Italian recipes.  since this is a fresh product, once the seal on the cheese container is opened, the cheese must be used within a few days.  this product does spoil rapidly, which gives thought to what must be added to that shredded product often used.  it seems that cheese can last for months in the refrigerator.

consider trying the fresh mozzarella when preparing baked pasta dishes or pizza.  this fresh product also pairs nicely with ham, olives and crostini.
