Whatcha Got Cookin' by Ellen Watts


It's that glorious time of year when the vegetables and fruits are really coming in season. These two recipes are Margaret Burks’s specialties, both recipes could be made from fresh vegetables straight out of the garden. You can count on her to bring these to any gathering where a good dish is appreciated! Margaret’s recipe for Corn Pudding ( along with many more of her recipes) can be found in the old church cookbook,  Food For The Soul.  The other recipe is one of my very favorites. I often choose an extra helping of these Scalloped Tomatoes over desert  because it is so good! Thanks Margaret for sharing these recipes!
