Several of you asked for our pasta salad, oatmeal pecan cookies and cobbler recipes at the last two retreats. As soon as Teri tells me what ingredients she changes for the cookies, I'll post that. In the meantime here are the other two:
1 box of garden rotini pasta, cooked & drained
1 cucumber, peeled & diced
1/2 small container of cherry tomatoes, cut each tomato in half
1/2 purple onion, diced
1 bottle of Zesty italian dressing (must be Zesty to get good flavor, but you can use Zesty Light)
Toss all of this together and add 1 - 2 Tablespoons of McCormicks Salad Supreme and toss again.
You can easily double the recipe like we do for the retreat.
Mam's Easy Cobbler
1/2 cup sugar 1 tsp baking soda
2/3 c self rising flour butter the size of an egg (yes that what my Grandmother said!)
1/2 cup milk
You will need approximately 30 ounces of sweetened hot fruit. For peach, use a 29 oz can of peaches & for the strawberry we used frozen strawberries and just measure it out. Add sugar to fruit (to taste) & heat over medium heat until good & hot.
In a medium size casserole dish, combine all the dry ingredients. Melt butter & let cool and then mix milk & melted butter into the dry ingredients. Pour hot fruit over this mixture (DO NOT STIR) Bake @ 350 for about 30 minutes or until top is good & brown.
We just double the recipe for the retreat.
