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.

easy ice cream sandwiches

for the fourth of July this year, i needed an easy festive dessert.  i have made ice cream sandwiches for many years now. however, this year, i tried using waffle cookies.  i purchased these at trader joe's, but they are available in many markets. these cookies are thin.  they do break easily, so caution is given when smoothing the ice cream between the layers.  the ice cream needs to be soft enough not to break the cookie, but firm enough to stay within the cookies to allow for the sprinkles to be added.

i simply used my homemade strawberry ice cream and then added red, white and blue sprinkles to the sides. 

freeze these wrapped in waxed paper or foil.  freeze until firm and then enjoy !
