Welcome to our website and blog: The Gardener and The Cook. This new site is the combination of two blogs formerly known as "In the Garden with Maria" and "Cooking with Bo & Mia". Because we both love to cook, and because I grow a lot of our food, I decided to merge the two sites. What I don't grow, we buy at local farmers' markets. Don't worry, I still love gardening, especially flowers, so all the beautiful flower photos, gardening tips, and answers to your gardening questions are still here, along with scrumptious recipes, and later, we hope to include restaurant reviews from our travels.
Here are some examples of what you will find on this new website and blog:
