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.

michigan maple cream

especially this time of year, i look to american spoon foods for a variety of terrific products to use in recipes for breakfast, lunch or dinner.  this delicious maple cream from Michigan's upper peninsula is the product of a special cooling and churning technique that gives pure maple syrup a creamy, spreadable consistency. no cream or butter is added to the product.

last week, i used this maple cream on steel cut oats for oatmeal, as well as sweet potatoes.  it can be spread easily on toast or english muffins and is terrific on fresh cut carrots.

maple cream could be also used on pancakes, waffles or used in place of honey or brown sugar for fresh baked granola.  i really can't say enough about this product, as it is unique and very tasty.  it just reminds me of the best of autumn and the fall holidays.

if you haven't heard of american spoon foods, check out their website at:   http://www.spoon.com/home  they have stores in petoskey, harbor springs, charlevoix, traverse city and saugatuck michigan.
