Apple Dumplings Cobbler {This could become one of your favorite apple desserts!}

When we have lots of apples that are not getting eaten quick enough around my house and need to eat soon, the first thing I think about is Apple Dumplings Cobbler . It is a combination of my Apple Dumplings recipe and my Peach Cobbler recipe.

Classic Lime Sweet Pickles

Classic Lime Sweet Pickles , cucumbers made into the most heavenly crisp, sweet, tangy pickle you will ever eat.  The hardest part about making these pickles is waiting for them to be ready to eat.   This summer, we had more cucumbers than we knew what to do with due to a little, or you might say a big mistake.

Baked Triple Berry Hand Pies

Baked Triple Berry Hand Pies  are so simple to make.   All you need is pie crust dough and berries and some sugar to sweeten them.  When you have berries or any stone fruits that are needing to be eaten, hand pies are the answer. The one thing I like most about making them is that you really don't have to have a set amount of any ingredients.   I start with the berries, by tossing them in some sugar and cornstarch, and then spooning them on top of the crust.   For the crust, I start with one recipe of pie crust and make as many of them as I can with that one recipe.  Then I make another recipe if I need to---how simple is that? Growing up in East Texas, I had Dewberry vines all around my house.   We would start watching for the blooms in the spring.   Then we would pick gallons of them.   Mother canned several jars of jelly, and froze some also, to make berry cobblers all through the year.   These hand pies have blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries in them.

Sausage Kabobs  are super easy to prepare for the grill, because there is no trimming involved.  Just cut them in large links and slide them on the skewer with the vegetables.  I baste them with the same mixture I used on the Grilled Summer Veggies .  These Kabobs were not only
