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.

seasonal recipes

for the past few months, i have been watching allen smith's new series on the create network.  it has been based on his most recent cookbook, seasonal recipes from the garden.  what i enjoy about allen, is that he grows so many wonderful things in his southern garden, and then steps into his kitchen and prepares very simple but beautifully presented dishes.

i just had to order his cookbook from amazon.com and when it arrived this past week, i was very pleased.  the cookbook is divided into sections based on the seasons and the fresh vegetables available.  the glossy pages are filled with beautiful photographs, and so many fabulous recipes.

many of the recipes are very familiar to me, as i have watched allen prepare them on television.  what doesn't come across in the book is his spectacular flower, herb and vegetable gardens which he presents on his series.  the perfect gardens are amazing at his home. 

so, if you are thinking about adding a new cookbook to your library, i highly recommend this one. and, i recommend watching allen on his syndicated and public television shows.
