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.

celebrate - cookbook review

in her first entertaining book, Pippa Middleton shares recipes, craft ideas, and hundreds of ideas for making planned events fun and exciting.  the cookbook is nearly 400 pages packed with ideas for all four seasons.

the almost encyclopedia of party ideas begins with autumn, including ideas for Halloween, Sunday lunches and cozy supper parties.  Christmas, new year's eve and even burns night party suggestions are covered in the next chapter on winter.

spring and summer planning will come easy with beautiful photographs and step by step ideas on valentine's day parties, Easter and afternoon tea.  picnic, camping and barbecues are covered, which include ideas for cooking outdoors on a fire, with games and activities for children.

i love this book and was thrilled to receive it as a gift.  the ideas are beautifully photographed and the recipes are traditional and equally very British.  watch this blog as i plan to bake from this wonderful cookbook.
