Cooking is fun. Eating is funner. I cook, photograph and write these recipes.
Everything I post on this blog I make from scratch using fresh wholesome ingredients.. I've been cooking since I was a little kid.

My recipes are based on trial and error, along with studying cookbooks, family recipes, blogs and cooking shows.

Some of the veggies and herbs I use are grown in my garden. Yay sustainability!
I'm working on making my yard into an edible landscape. It's really fun to go out in the garden and pick your veggies for dinner!
I'm helping as many people as I can to plant edible gardens in their yards too. It's hard work but it's really fun!

    Blooming Artichoke Artichokes Artichoke plant Summer Squash Beets and Basil

    Back Garden Update: July 1, 2012

    Artichokes are continuing to bloom beautifully. I’ll let one of these plants set seed, but the others will be cut back to the ground once they fade. These are perennials where I live, growing in cooler temps. They’ll sprout back up again in late fall. 

    Summer squash have lots of blossoms and it should be about a week till we harvest our first zucchinis. Eggplants have set fruit as well, I have two kinds growing next to each other. I can’t wait for baked eggplant. Cucumbers are still sprouting.

    Tomato plants are growing vigorously and all of them have flowers. I see a couple small green tomatoes here and there. Strawberries are all doing great since I transplanted them into containers to get them off the ground.

    We’re still harvesting beets, carrots, lettuces, kale and chard. It’s really fun to pull the root vegetables out of the ground! 

    This week I’ll be planting more squash, tomatoes, peppers, basil, tarragon, and a new crop of lettuces in a shady spot.
