Chicken Terrific {This is not your typical casserole...the ingredients might surprise you!}

Chicken Terrific , wild rice, water chestnuts, French style green bean, and a buttery herb stuffing on top that sends it over the top. This yummy casserole recipe came to me from my daughter, Jennifer.  Chicken Terrific is a favorite casserole on her dinner table and has become a favorite of mine too.

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.

Grilled Kabobs {Simply Delicious...So Easy...Fun To Make!}

This recipe has been in my file to post for a while now, along with some others.  Lots going on this summer and not enough time to do everything.  We had these Kabobs back when I posted the Grilled Summer Vegetables and they were super delicious.  Pork steak is one of Jim's favorite meat's to grill, so I decided to trim any excess fat and cut it up in large cubes to grill along with his other favorite -- Kielbasa Sausage.  Pork Steak Kabobs are easy to prepare, and pair well with most any vegetable.  This time, I kept it simple and paired it with some bell pepper and onions that I cut the same size as the the pork steak cubes.  This way, they have a better chance to cook evenly. 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

Overnight French Toast and Warm Honey Syrup {Celebrating A Birthday Breakfast!}

A delicious rich breakfast or brunch dish is prepared the night before, placed in the refrigerator, and then baked the following morning.  Overnight French Toast   I have been searching for the perfect recipe for some time.  I could not find one that wasn't like a bread pudding in texture.  This recipe is just as perfect as I wanted it to be. Texture wise, it is creamy, delicate on the inside, and tender on the outside-- being able to cut through with ease, similar to the perfect French Toast. Taste wise, it is absolutely scrumptious! Birthday breakfasts are another way to celebrate a person's special day.  On the first of July, my Grandsons, Luke, who turned 14, and Gabriel, who turned 11, wanted to celebrate their birthday breakfast at my house with their other cousins who were in town for the week. I asked Luke what he would like me to make.  He said, "just surprise me, Grandma"!  I made him this Overnight French Toast   dish with Honey Syrup , and a
