All those wonderful antioxidants that green tea is famous for are in glorious abundance in a cold beverage as well as a hot. 

If you want the health benefits of this beverage in the summer months but can't take the heat then try a glass of iced instead. You can have all the health benefits of green tea but in a cold drink instead.

Pear Cobbler Recipe: Peach if You Prefer

Image
Fruit cobbler is an old country recipe traditionally served as a dessert while peaches or pears are in season. For those who have fruit trees it is a dish that often shows up at harvest time as an after dinner dessert or as a late evening snack. At the peak of the harvest it is a dish commonly taken to share with friends at community events.

Peach cobbler is a dessert recipe that has been welcomed onto supper tables far more times than one can mention. Sweet, delicious, nutritious, and oozing with the juicy goodness that only a great fruit dessert can have. This recipe is generally made using peaches, pears, or apricots but as we have a pear tree in our backyard this is the fruit that we generally put into ours. It is a delightfully refreshing dessert recipe that brings with it all the summertime warmth of a fresh fruit harvest. 

Pear cobbler is a dish that tastes like it has traveled direct from the orchard to the kitchen table. It is delightfully refreshing. So don your apron and lets…

Add a delicious new twist to your Easter meal. What could be more delightful for this spring holiday than a great big bowl of Easter bunny stew.

It is deliciously nutritious and a very novel method of ridding the world of leftover Easter bunnies. So pull out your best pot and prepare to heat up your family a great big scrumptious feeding of bunny stew. This traditional Easter dish is one that the whole family is going to look forward to. The ingredients for this dish are easily adaptable to serve any number of people so if you are expecting company it is still the perfect dish to serve. 

My rabbit stew recipe will serve about 6 but you can easily adjust the ingredients to match the number of people who will be dining on it. Simply use less of the ingredients for fewer people and more if you are planning on feeding a larger group. If you are planning on serving a large number of people you may want to consider using three or four Easter bunnies in your recipe rather than just the two I r…

Oooh these are definitely yummy home baked goodness. Crispy oatmeal with a hint of walnuts and the deliciously sweet texture of coconut all baked into one scrumptious snack. 

If you have cookie monsters in your home then you need to check out this coconut cookie recipe. Tasting similar to the Dad's cookies you find at the grocery store these are good old fashioned country goodness. There is so much more to enjoy about these cookies than simply the fact that they are a tasty tidbit. They are also pretty darn good for you. On rushed morning I often have a couple of these alongside a glass of milk and it gives me the morning energy boost I need.

The ingredient list says it all: Coconut, oatmeal, eggs, and walnuts. All those ingredients have elements in them that are good for you. I love that cookies contain oatmeal because it  is always deliciously nutritious. Oatmeal is a heart healthy food and a soluble fiber that absorbs cholesterol within it to help flush that nastiness out of the …

You can use any pre-cooked chicken or turkey in this recipe and it comes out tasting much like the dressing cooked inside the bird.It is delicious and contains as much meat as you would like to add into it so this dish can be a meal in itself. My stuffing comes out loaded with large chunks of turkey baked into it. It is delicious!
With my recipe for pan style baked stuffing you can use leftover chicken, turkey, or ground sausage to prepare this side dish whenever the mood strikes you. For those who love stuffing but can't get enough in the bird this recipe will work too. Pop an extra pan of stuffing in the oven and you'll have plenty for everyone.

Apple Crumble Cake Recipe

Image
We have an organic apple tree in our backyard that provides us with a bounty of fresh fruit ideal for home baking. It insures that I am always cooking up something fruity.

Today I am sharing my apple crumble cake recipe and it is indeed a nutritious and delicious treat. Baking with fruit adds that little extra touch of healthy to a dessert. My tasty apple crumb cake is one of my husbands favorite recipes. It is fluffy soft on the bottom with a burst of flavor on top.

Apples can be crisp, tarty, or sweet, and they taste like a tiny drop of pure heaven when they are baked up into a dessert. One of the best aspects of an apple is its taste but apples are also one of nature's most nutritious foods. They are rich in antioxidants, flavonoids, and fiber. They are food that is good for you.

To Peel or Not to Peel?
Much of an apple's nutrition is found in or just under the skin and this leaves one to wonder if peeling apples for baking is something we should be doing.

I often try to m…
