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.

angel food cake with chocolate drizzle

here is an option for decorating an angel food cake for fall entertaining.  after making the boxed angel food cake, i simply drizzled melted chocolate with a spoon over the cooled cake.  i think it gives an appearance of a spider web, which could be a great feature for a Halloween buffet.

at the base of the cake, i used chocolate mint leaves, which i made from fresh spearmint leaves from my herb garden.  check out my blog post on chocolate mint leaves if interested on the technique to create this easy decorating option.

i kept the cake covered between servings, to keep the angel food cake fresh as well as the mint and chocolate bright and flavorful.

since angel food cake is a family favorite, it will certainly be served this way again.
