Thanks to Mary J, Sherry, Sharon and others who I might have forgotten for asking about me and sharing how much they enjoy my contributions. We are hap and healthy, just very busy without side work. We recently had 22 tons of rock delivered and we are still working to get it where it needs to go on our property. We have also had unexpected company, which was nice, but demanded a lot of our time.

This is a favorite of my husband. He can eat most of it in one setting. I often double the recipe, if I want anyone else to have some of the dish. You can use any fruit in place of the peaches.

Robbie's Peach Cobbler - Cake Type Topping

1 cup Sugar
1 cup Flour
1/4 teaspoon Salt - I omit this
2 teaspoons Baking Powder
1/2 cup Milk
1 29 ounce can Fruit, drained and saved
1/2 cup Fruit Juice

Cream butter & sugar. Mix together flour, salt & baking powder. Stir in dry ingredients alternately with milk. Beat till smooth. Stir in vanilla. Pour into a 2 quart Casserole Dish. Spoon fruit over batter. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup sugar, if desired. I do not do this if the fruit is packed in a sugar syrup. Pour fruit juice over top.
Bake 45-50 minutes at 375 degrees.

I believe it was Patsy, who wanted camping recipes. I smiled when I read she dislikes camping, but has gone for years as her husband enjoys it. I feel the same way and could identify with her comments. I enjoy spending lots of time outdoors, but at the end of the day I want a hot shower and my own bed. You can also make foil packets using fish, or mix up your favorite meat loaf recipe and divide in to several foil packets and your favorite vegetables and grill them. I have other recipes I will send tomorrow.

Hobos Recipe

Tear pieces of foil 18 inches long:
Put on foil 1/3 pound ground beef (raw) shaped into a patty
1 raw potato cut up in small pieces
1 raw carrot cut up in small pieces
1/4 stick of margarine cut in pats put around on potatoes - I omit this
onion cut up to your taste
salt and pepper to taste

Fold foil around "meal" and fold edges together at top and sides to seal. Usually around 45 minutes on an average fire or coals. Can be made in the oven
but taste better over the fire.

In response to the suggestion to start charcoal - for over 10 years I have lived full-time in an RV and have started numerous charcoal fires. I use the paper egg cartons - put one briquet in each egg section - light the paper carton. No need for fluids. DO NOT use the Styrofoam cartons.

1 cup packed brown sugar
˝ cup all-purpose flour
2 cups chopped pecans
2/3 cup butter, softened
2 eggs, beaten

Spoon batter into muffin cups about 2/3 full. Bake for 12 minutes for mini muffins or 16 minutes for regular size muffins. For unlined pan run a knife around the edge of each muffin and pop it out.

Caramel S'more Pops Recipe
Serves: 24

24 large marshmallows (I used the S'more marshmallows- they're square shaped instead of round and they're easier to dip!
1 cup chocolate chips
25 square caramels (or a bag of the caramel bits)
1/2 cup canned sweetened condensed milk
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup crushed graham cracker
24 popsicle sticks

Combine the caramels, butter and sweetened condensed milk in a small glass bowl. Microwave on high for about 2 minutes. Whisk gently until mixture combines. If your caramels need a little extra time, microwave in 20 second intervals, stirring well in between until mixture is smooth. Let sit to cool down slightly while you prepare the chocolate.

Put chocolate chips (or Chocoley Dark Chocolate gourmet dipping compound like I use- it's delicious and so easy to work with!) in a small glass bowl and microwave on high about 1 minute, until melted and smooth.

Pierce the end of a marshmallow with a small paring knife and insert popsicle stick. Dip one half of the marshmallow in the caramel at an angle, then turn over and dip the other side in the chocolate. Immediately dip into the graham cracker crumbs, turning to coat each side as much as you'd like.

Set pop down on a tray lined with parchment paper. Repeat this process with all 24 pops.

Caramel S'more pops are best served the day they're made but they will keep for a few days if you store them in an airtight container in the fridge preferably. Just let them come to room temperature prior to serving, as they're easier to eat!
