July Food and Recipe Basket

What's In Season and How Do I Use It?

July is here with its parades, fireworks and great fresh foods. Many of the foods that we have had in our basket for the past two months are still producing and can be found at many of the farmers markets. Some of the foods this month are produced here in the south, however my granddaughter that lives in New York can often times find some of them. Some of the recipes that I will share with you this month have been passed down in our family for generations, I hope you enjoy them.

    These are all wonderful ideas, but I'm stuck on that cherry cobbler. I'm never made one but I love cherries and this dessert is oozing them..
