What's Cooking

Homemade Salsa
We use the tomatoes from our garden and this package of salsa mix (found in the produce section). We chop up the tomatoes real small and stir in the package of salsa mix. We then grab a bag of tortilla chips and enjoy! It is so simple, so good, and is often a meal at our house.

Spaghetti Casserole
8 oz sour cream, 8 oz cream cheese, 1 package angel hair pasta. Cook pasta and drain. Stir in sour cream and cream cheese until mixed well.
Brown 1/2 pound pork sausage and 1/2 pound ground beef, with onion and Italian spices. Add 1 can Rotel and 1 can Italian diced tomatoes (and a fresh tomato from your garden if you have one!) and mix with meat. Add garlic and salt and pepper to taste.
In a large casserole dish, layer meat on bottom, grated cheddar cheese and then spaghetti. Alternate each. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes.

I tried this recipe for the first time this week and was not sure how it would turn out. It turned out to be incredible and we will definitely have it again.

TennTucky Blackberry Cobbler
1 cup sugar, 1 cup milk, 1 cup flour - whisk these 3 until blended. Add 1 stick melted butter to batter and whisk until blended. Pour batter into a lightly greased baking dish; sprinkle 2 cups blackberries evenly on top. Sprinkle 1/4 cup sugar evenly on top also. Bake at 350 for 1 hour or until golden brown.

I have made this twice in the past week with fresh blackberries. Yummy stuff!

This is great using fresh strawberries, blueberries, or peaches. It's a favorite.
