welcome

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 fruit platter

since i have been thinking about super bowl sunday this week, i don't want to leave out a great healthy choice for any football party table.  having a nice tray of fresh fruit is always welcome alongside many of the other higher calorie appetizers.

even though super bowl is a special event when everyone seems to enjoy a few extra calories, it is nice to have fresh orange and pear slices, a few grapes, a sliced banana and even some berries to complement the other selections on the table.

don't be afraid to offer fresh fruit for any meal or gathering.  most often guests choose the fruit tray first and appreciate the healthy selection on the buffet table.
