Patty Pan Squash Casserole

One of the nice advantages about living in a small rural community is the sharing of fresh vegetables in harvest time. My friend stopped by the other day with a sack full of Patty Pan Squash fresh off the vine. We love Patty Pan Squash, they are really cute little squash that look very much like a flying saucer or a little scalloped cup holder. I knew that I had to make a dish with these awesome little squash, so I gathered up some vegetables from my own garden and this is what I came up with. This recipe is just packed with flavor and is a vegetable dish that we just loved. We will be making this one often, well until the squash run out for this year.

Grandma's Cherry Cobbler

I remember helping my Grandmother pick cherries and the wonderful taste of those fresh cherries. On the way back from the orchard we would stop by the water pump and we would wash the cherries. She would later very carefully take the seeds from the cherries. Next she would make this amazing filling for the cobbler and then some fluffy biscuits to go on top. I remember watching her stoke the fire in her wood cook stove making sure the temperature was just right for the cobbler, that she would place into the baking compartment of the wood stove. I can still smell that wonderful cobbler today and the wonderful memories that it brings.

Whats For Dinner Next Week 6-25-17

This is about the time of the year when our garden harvest gets into full swing and we start our canning and preserving. We have had a fantastic production from our garden this year because we have had just the right amount of rain, for which we are very grateful. I am planning one of my favorite soups this week and a great salsa that goes with any and everything in the summer. I love our wonderful garden to table meal plans for the summer.

Roasted Potatoes With 7 Season Recipes

We grow most of our own potatoes here in our garden at the cottage. There is nothing better that digging the fresh potatoes and then roasting them in the oven or over the grill with wonderful seasons. Often times I am asked by a reader or a friend to share a great seasoning for roasted potatoes. We have several season mixes that we use for our roasted potatoes and I am sharing some of our favorites with you today.

Retro Strawberry Ice Box Dessert

This was a very popular dessert in the late 50's and early 60's in my circle of friends. It was a favorite at the Bridge Club luncheons, Junior League meetings, back yard bar-b-ques and family dinners. Still to this day one of my friends or a family member will ask about the Strawberry Ice Box Dessert and I am just so happy to make it, because once it is on my dessert plate I can't wait to enjoy this delicious dessert.
