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.

valentine's day cooking

today i was browsing through my cookbook collection and found one of my favorite cookbooks for valentine's day menus.  this cookbook features recipes from the northwest's favorite romantic inns, wineries, and restaurants.

included are a variety of offerings for breakfast, brunch, appetizers, salads, main dishes and desserts.  the cookbook also offers suggestions for flowers, perfect pairs of wine and cheese, romantic picnic basket ideas, music selections for both dancing and dining, and selections for romantic movie classics.

an entire chapter is devoted to detailed descriptions of the locations featured in the recipe section.  romantic lodgings, restaurants, inns, and bed and breakfasts are described with suggestions for visiting in the near future.

i think i might just try the champagne waffles, made with champagne to create a bubbly batter !  sounds amazing for breakfast... and maybe the chocolate dip for two for a post dinner treat.
