Great for sleep-overs and backyard camping trips. Bananas cooked in foil with chocolate chips and marshmallows. You can even bake these in the oven if a grill or campfire is not available. You can be creative with other toppings like maraschino cherries, peanut butter chips, coconut, butterscotch morsels or caramel.
Fresh grouper is my absolute favorite. It is a mild fish and this recipe may entice even those who don't like fish to make it a favorite.

A whole turkey is boned, then stuffed with a sweet and savory chicken stuffing flavored with dried raisins, currents, dried cherries, and hard apple cider. The roasted turkey is simple to carve into beautiful slices at the table.
It doesn't take much to make rhubarb sing: Some sugar, a bit of flour, and a pat or two of butter. When this lovely double-crust pie emerges from the oven, it 's golden outside and sweet and luscious inside. It 's especially nice with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Brie cheese smothered with fresh figs cooked with brown sugar, vanilla, and almonds, then baked until almost melted. Serve warm with water crackers as a wonderful holiday appetizer or special treat during fig season. Canned figs in syrup may be substituted for fresh by reducing the brown sugar to 1/4 cup and replacing the water with syrup.
Serve your Caprese salad on toothpicks for a fun, easy appetizer. It takes just a few minutes to thread mozzarella balls, cherry tomatoes, and fresh basil leaves onto the picks and drizzle with olive oil.
Tomatoes and basil, fresh from the garden, are tossed with olives, bell peppers, rotini pasta, then dressed with a creamy, piquant blend of mayonnaise, red wine vinegar and garlic. Let the salad chill overnight to bring out the snappy flavors.
