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.

ice cream

for thanksgiving this year, i decided to serve a simple dessert.  vanilla ice cream with caramel sauce and chopped nuts.  after watching a month of television shows highlighting pies, cakes, tortes, and other fabulous desserts, i decided to offer a simple dessert instead.

i had no complaints.  in fact, my family wanted to even wait a couple of hours before having the featured sweet.  simple fresh vanilla ice cream with sander's caramel sauce, topped with a few chopped nuts was not only delicious, but the perfect dessert for this year's celebration.  don't be afraid to serve the obvious, often guests love an old favorite.
