I have enjoyed cooking and gardening for more than thirty years. My inspiration comes from everything New England; the water, the homes, and the gardens.
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.

black and white heart cookies
one of my favorite desserts has always been a simple cookie. over the years i have made many different sugar or shortbread cookies, and mostly prefer any of Martha's or Ina's recipes. it is important to choose a sturdy cookie recipe so that the chocolate does not weaken the cookie texture.
this year, i used Martha's sugar cookie cutout recipe from her cookies book, and then applied the melted chocolate after the cookies had cooled.
sweets for my sweetie....and another happy valentine's day.
