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.

shrimp cocktail appetizer

on christmas day, it is especially nice to serve a special holiday appetizer.  for this year's meal, i served shrimp cocktail.  the shrimp are pre-cooked with tails on and served chilled in a pedestal glass on a bed of shredded dark green romaine. 

a selection of shrimp toppings are served on the plate.  this year, i used minced red onions, horseradish sauce and olde cape cod seafood cocktail sauce.  served with a small shrimp fork, this appetizer is a lovely presentation.
