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.

herb of the year 2012

the international herb association yearly publishes a book to celebrate one herb.  this year, the rose has been chosen for its' antiquity and ability to soothe and heal.  i have been reading this book for a couple of weeks now and have been enjoying the articles written by more than 25 contributors.

one of my friends, Donna Frawley, is a regular contributor to the publications.  Donna, who owns frawley's fine herbary in midland speaks on a variety of herb topics.  i have attended several of her cooking classes which are delightful, informative, and very tasty.

in this book, Donna has a recipe for rose butter cookies with a rose glaze.  she uses rose water in the recipe, and i am looking forward to making these cookies for valentines' day. 

watch for their appearance on the blog.. coming soon !
