We are all gathering on the back porch today to enjoy our food on this beautiful fall day. It is already the last week in September and time for our Top Ten Features from last week. I always love this feature week to see how you are filling your plate. It is so hard for me to choose the features each week, because each of you bring the most outstanding recipes to our party, so I love it when it is your turn each month to make that choice. Lets get the party started so we can enjoy the recipes that you are sharing today!

I really enjoy going to the local orchards to pick fresh fruit or to stop by the farmers market to get the seasonal fruits. The other day when I was at the Farmers Market they had the most beautiful apples and I couldn't resist bringing some home. We love a real simple dessert sometimes that you can pair with some ice cream or just a simple cookie. Cinnamon Skillet Apples is a very simple recipe and very easy to make.We just love this dessert and hope you will to.

We all love a Sloppy Joe, but here at the cottage our favorite is a Sloppy Texan. This is one of those awesome easy and quick recipes that feeds the family on a very busy day. I just about always double this recipe, so I can have some left for the freezer. It is great to have the filling just waiting in the freezer for one or two folks. This Sloppy Texan has all the flavors of Texas with just a little heat.

All over our little village soups are simmering on the stove, breads are in the oven and the leaves are beginning to fall, it's fall! The weather is beautiful here and the gardens and farmers markets are filling to the brim with pumpkins and other fall squash. This is a fun time of the year for cooks, with so many different products to choose from. I am looking forward to you filling the table with wonderful food today, after all you'al are the greatest cooks on the planet!

I remember sitting at my Grandmothers long ranch table surrounded by family and enjoying a country breakfast. My Grandmother did not have a slow cooker, as a matter of fact she cooked on a wood stove, but the food she made was heavenly. Today I am making my Grandmothers Country Breakfast in the Slow Cooker and we are adding some southern Buttermilk Biscuits and White Pepper Gravy. This recipe is an easier way to make a Country Breakfast, but it sure is good and brings back lots of awesome memories.

I remember my Mother and her friends called a recipe like this a One Dish Dinner and today we call it a One Pot Meal. It is really great to have a go to recipe for a very busy day when there is no extra time to be spent in the kitchen. This One Pot Meal, uses fresh vegetables right out of the garden or the farmers market. A harvest in the pot, add some chicken, and this is a fabulous One Pot Meal in less than one hour. This is one of our new recipes from Garden to Table, and sure hope you enjoy it as much as we have!
