Peach Cobbler Recipe

I made this Peach Cobbler Recipe yesterday for dessert for our Father's Day Dinner. The peaches are wonderful in SC this time of year so it is the perfect dessert.

2 cups self-rising flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 cups milk
1 stick butter
6 cups peaches sliced
1/2 cup sugar

I like to peel my peaches the day ahead of baking the cobbler if I have time and put about 1/2 cup of sugar on them and let them sit in refrigerator overnight to sweeten and develop some juice.

Put butter in 13x9 casserole dish sprayed with cooking spray. Put in oven and let the butter melt while the oven is Preheating to 325 degrees if the dish is glass. 350 degrees if the pan is metal.

Mix flour, 1 1/2 cups sugar and gradually add milk in a bowl. When the butter is melted pour the batter in the casserole dish, then pour the peaches in the casserole dish and distribute them throughout the dish don't stir it all together. Bake 45 minutes to 1 hour until light golden brown.

Lemon-Strawberry Slush Recipe

I created my own Lemon-Strawberry Slush Recipe, because the ones you get in town have too much sugar and it is a good treat for this hot summer weather we are having.

2 cups cold water from refrigerator
2 cups whole frozen strawberries, no sugar added
2 tbsp. lemon juice
2 tbsp. sugar
2 cups ice.

Put the first four ingredients in the blender and blend on high until well blended. Add ice and blend until it is all finely crushed.

Hot Dog Chili Recipe

I made this Hot Dog Chili Recipe and Hot Dog Relish Recipe today for lunch with kielbasa instead of hot dogs. I also made my Quick and Easy Baked Beans. It would also be good with the Quick and Easy Coleslaw.

1 lb. hamburger
1/2 cup onion, chopped
1/2 tsp. minced garlic
1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 cup water
1/4 tsp salt
2-3 dashes pepper
2 dashes hot sauce (if desired)

Brown hamburger, drain, add onion simmer for about 5 minutes until onions are clear, add the rest of the ingredients and simmer 5 more minutes. Serve on top of hot dogs or kielbasa.

We also made this to go with it:

Hot Dog Relish Recipe

1/4 cup mustard
1/4 cup onion, finely chopped
1/4 cup sweet pickle relish

Stir together, and use for topping on Hot Dogs. 

You can top your Hot Dog with whatever toppings you like some of my suggestions are:

Hot Dog Relish (above)
grated cheddar cheese
Quick and Easy Coleslaw

What do you like to put on your Hot Dogs?

Quick and Easy Baked Beans

These Quick and Easy Baked Beans are great served along with my Quick and Easy Coleslaw with BBQ Chicken, Hamburgers, Fried Fish, or Hot Dogs.

2 lg. cans baked beans
**I use Bush's Vegetarian Baked Beans
8 oz. grated cheddar cheese
1/2 cup real bacon bits

Put the beans in a 2 qt. casserole dish sprayed with cooking spray. Cook on High 5 minutes in the microwave. Add cheese and cook 5 more minutes. Stir in bacon. Serve.

**Makes about 12 servings.

**You can cook regular bacon and crumble it up in the beans last, but for a shortcut I used Hormel Real Crumbled Bacon and it tasted great. Nobody even knew I had taken a shortcut.

Quick and Easy Coleslaw Recipe

I made this Quick and Easy Coleslaw Recipe for our Memorial Day Dinner. We also had my Quick and Easy Baked Beans and BBQ Chicken. This Coleslaw Recipe would be good side dish to serve with Fried or Baked Fish  or Hot Dogs. 

1 16 oz. bag shredded coleslaw
3-4 heaping tablespoons mayonnaise
      **I use Duke's Light Mayo
3-4 heaping tablespoons sweet pickle relish
A few dashes of pepper

Stir together and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Makes about 6 servings.

 You can double the recipe if you need more.

**I don't add salt because the mayo and pickles already have salt also salt causes the cabbage to excrete water which will make the slaw too watery.
