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.

toasted ravioli

on a recent trip to the market, my husband brought home frozen cheese ravioli that somehow made it into our shopping bag. i think the person shopping before us didn't pick up all of their groceries !  i had not tried this recipe for years, but thought i would again, and it was actually quite tasty.

these cheese ravioli can be served with marinara sauce for a quick appetizer or even for a meal with a light pasta sauce and Parmesan cheese.

to make the toasted ravioli, remove them from the freezer and thaw the quantity to cook for the meal.  i thawed them in a glass dish and it took several hours.  when ready to cook, dip each into a small amount of egg beaters or egg yolks that have been beaten.

then dip into some panko breadcrumbs and brown in a small amount of canola oil.  the ravioli brown very quickly and can be placed on a baking sheet to keep warm in the oven and complete the cooking.  sprinkle with parsley flakes and serve.

these were crunchy and tasty and something different.
