I wanted to create a tropical dessert using 5 of the 21 contest ingredients. This dessert is light and tasty, and the juices from the fruit add a tangy sweetness that does not require sugar. Toasted coconut and almonds add a bit of extra texture. This dessert has 3 main ingredient combos - a fruit mixture, a flour mixture and a topping mixture. Great ending to a picnic or bar-b-que with friends. Enjoy!
Cayenne makes this spicy! I'm a wimp so use less. Serve it piping hot with thick slices of warm crusty bread. Adapted from Rebecca Field Jager in her cookbook How to Make !ove and Dinner at the Same Time.
Last year I received a crock pot cookbook with a recipe in it for pulled pork. It was nice but I thought the sauce it made in the pot was a bit too thin. I made several changes and am happy with this recipe so its time to share it! I sometimes have to water the sauce down now. The sauce/marinade can be made up to 3 days in advance and kept in the fridge until needed. Marinating time is not included. I make this in my 3 1/2 quart crock pot.
Easily adapted for whatever you have on hand. I often substitute thighs for the breasts, regular brandy or apple juice for the apple brandy, and if you can't find Havarti Cheese, Gouda or Colby work well. If you have a newer model slow cooker, this will cook in 4-5 hours, as opposed to 6-7.
This is a very good recipe for my son who is 2 years old. He isn't one for chicken, but will eat this. I put individual servings for him into the freezer so when the hubby and I eat something that we know he won't eat, I just pop this in the microwave. Very easy and satisfying.

From one of Gooseberry Patch's newest cookbooks ("Fall, Family & Friends") comes this very Southern recipe for Shrimp & Grits. Now I am not Southern (my DH is), but we both love grits. I do know this dish is very traditional in the Southeast. In a check on Amazon, I discovered a cookbook devoted ENTIRELY to shrimp & grits, can you believe it? This is an easy version to be made in the crock pot. Y'all, I haven't try it yet, but as soon as I find the grits (scarce here in the southwest) I'm going to -- DH can't wait!
