Mixed Berry Cobbler


Our family love's cobblers, I remember when I was a young girl, we were never without a fruit cobbler at our family dinners. If it was summer, we would have fresh fruit cobblers and in the fall and winter it would be home canned fruit from last years harvest, but the cobbler was always delicious no matter what season it was.  We have fresh fruit right here in our garden and what we don't have our neighbors share with us, all the fresh fruit makes for great cobblers here at the cottage. Mixed Berry Cobbler is an old fashioned recipe with a combination of fruits that we have currently in harvest. The fresh flavors of this cobbler is amazing! Today with our farmers markets it is possible to find fresh berries almost year round, making it possible to make this cobbler recipe any time of the year!

Picadillo Sliders

If we are having a informal gathering for a group of friends or just a quick family supper, these little Picadillo Sliders are the best. I have combined this flavorful Latin American and Cuban dish to make these delicious sliders. This is a great recipe that takes very little time and can  be served right away either as a slider or on a larger bun. We have even used this awesome sauce as a pasta sauce and it is delicious. This is one of those recipes that can really work for you, a great go to meal.

Whats For Dinner Next Week, 6-17-18


Its Fathers Day Weekend and the guys get to pick the menu, that may be scary could be we end up with 3 starches or an all carb meal or maybe with my husband it would be just pie and Blue Bell. We will have to wait and see what they end up with, (help)! I have started to do a little canning as we are having a big tomato harvest this year. It is going to be fun planning the meal plans for this week. What will you be making your guys this weekend?

This is a great fresh salad that takes no time to make and taste like you have been working on it all day.

Peach Hand Pies


I spent a lot of time with my Grandparents on their farm when I was a young person, and one of the wonderful memories I have is going to the peach orchard with my family and picking peaches. My Grandmother would make many different recipes from the peaches but one of my favorites was her hand pies, or her Fried Peach Pie. This recipe is very close to my Grandmothers recipe, but my pies are not fried, they are baked. They could easily be fried but we enjoy them baked and the spice mix for this pie will have you asking for seconds!
