We live in zone 6a and I have been gardening and cooking for years. This blog is an opportunity for me to share with you my success and those failures that come about on occasion. Plus, I want to hear from all the gardeners and bakers and cooks out there and learn from you. Feel free to share your ideas.

I started the cucumbers late in hopes that I can avoid the cucumber beetle.

I grow lettuce in containers.

TWD: Baking With Julia: Savarin

This was very easy to make, but I was concerned that baking it in a bundt cake pan might make for a tiny cake. Well it sort of did, but it stll was tasty and the sugar sryup had an addition: orange juice.

This is not a typical sweet cake, and we actually preferred it to many overy sweet desserts. Add various fresh fruits and you are good to go. I used strawberries and mango.

I would make it again.
