welcome

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.

green bean bundles with bacon and brown sugar

this year, williams sonoma featured this recipe in their thanksgiving brochure. i served the green beans alongside of Ina's sweet potato puree, which was also delicious as a thanksgiving vegetable.  i would recommend these green beans to those members of your family who don't like green beans.  they are sweet and delicious.

to make the bundles:  preheat the oven to 350 degrees and cook the bacon half way for about 7 minutes. drain and blot on paper towels, chill in the refrigerator until ready to prepare the green beans for the meal.  next, clean and trim the green beans.  mix about 3-4 tablespoons of margarine with salt and pepper to taste.


about 30 minutes before mealtime, arrange about 5 to 6 beans in equal portions on a parchment lined baking sheet.  wrap each bundle with the bacon sliced to fit the bundle as needed.  drizzle the butter and using about 1/4 cup of brown sugar, sprinkle the sugar on top of each bundle.

roast the bundles until the bacon is cooked through and brown, about 20 to 25 minutes.  serve as a side vegetable with beef, poultry or pork.  these green beans were excellent and looked very attractive on the plate.  this recipe was easy, delicious and very attractive on the plate.
