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.

cream cheese icing

nothing says spring time like a carrot cake with cream cheese icing.  using your favorite carrot cake recipe or even a store bought carrot cake mix, try this icing recipe for a tasty frosting.

mix three ounces of softened cream cheese, with 2 tablespoons of softened unsalted butter.  using a hand mixer, slowly add 2 cups of powdered sugar and one teaspoon of vanilla.

this is a quick and tasty icing recipe that complements the carrot cake nicely.  i used a pastry bag to decorate the top of a one layer carrot cake.  enjoy for an Easter or spring time dessert.
