Of all the campfire desserts, our top picks include roasted apples with brown sugar, banana boats stuffed with chocolate chips and of course, the humble (but always amazing) s'more. But what's our absolute favorite, you ask? Fruit-filled fireside pies.
One of our favorite things we love to do this time of year is wake up early Saturday morning, eat a good breakfast, then head down to the local farmers' market to see what kind of goodies we find. The taste of fresh fruits and veggies just can't be beat. They're so delicious in every meal...from a veggie breakfast omelet to a bursting-with-berries parfait dessert!

Need dinner in a dash? These speedy suppers come to the rescue!
Summertime is all about less work and more fun, right? So, when you can get dinner on the table in 30 minutes or less, that means you can get back out there for a few more pages of your book, another swing in the hammock or maybe you'll have time for a family walk around the neighborhood.
We love these super speedy suppers because they let us squeeze every drop of sunshine out of our summer days. With no rush to get home and start dinner, they also make it easy to avoid take-out and help us shake up the burgers-and-dogs-on-the-grill routine too!
At this time of year, we can't take the heat, so we are getting out of the kitchen whenever we can! A slow-cooked supper helps us savor every second of sunny summer days. With just a few minutes of prep in the morning and a flick of the switch, you're on your way to the pool or out to the garden.
Today's slideshow is all about summertime slow-cooker classics. Not just for dinnertime, your slow-cooker can help you take amazing appetizers like Chipotle-Black Bean Dip to your get-togethers and create delicious desserts like Mom's Blueberry Cobbler for after supper too. We have all your mealtime bases covered...three cheers for summer slow cooking!

Mom's Blueberry Cobbler
We always knew Mom made the best blueberry cobbler, but we never knew making it in the slow cooker was this easy! A super-simple recipe from 101 Slow-Cooker Recipes, this is one of the best way to enjoy those delicious, juicy berries.
2 8-oz. tubes refrigerated biscuits, quartered and divided 1/3 c. brown sugar, packed 1/2 t. cinnamon 1/3 c. butter, melted 21-oz. can blueberry pie filling, divided
Layer one tube of biscuits in a slow cooker that has been sprayed with non-stick vegetable spray. In a small bowl, mix together brown sugar, cinnamon and butter until just combined; sprinkle half of mixture over biscuits. Spread half of pie filling over top. Layer with remaining biscuits; sprinkle with remaining brown sugar mixture and top with remaining pie filling. Cover and cook on high setting for 2-1/2 to 3 hours, until biscuits are golden. Makes 6 to 8 servings.
