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.

super bowl cupcakes

this week, i was given this adorable super bowl cupcake decorating set, which i had to put to good use immediately.  i almost couldn't wait to open the package to see how cute the decorations would look on my famous cupcake creations.

using baking cooking spray for the cupcake pans, i flour and grease them, so the cupcakes remove easily.  i never bake my cupcakes in the paper liners, but use them to serve and decorate the cupcakes.  on a recent post in this blog, my icing recipe was featured under maple icing.  i used this same recipe, but flavored the icing with Washington cherry extract, for a cheery cherry flavor.

all ready for the super bowl, we have been enjoying these cupcakes this week while watching the pre game feature shows.  thanks Karin....and good luck to Tom Brady, a real Michigan man.  go blue!
