Oatmeal Whole Wheat Quick Bread
Incredibly simple with good results: with supervision my not-quite-five-year-old granddaughter could do well with this. I'd recommend raising the flour content to 1½ cups of whole wheat, and boosting the baking powder to a full tablespoon. I say this because my initial observation of the dough ready to bake was rather soft/sticky. ALSO: a pizza stone dusted generously with cornmeal is a first-rate baking surface.

Split Pea Soup
Good stuff. I omitted the potato but added worcestershire sauce (~2 T) and liquid smoke (~1t). Works great with croutons and worcestershire sauce to taste.

Old Fashioned Peach Cobbler
Overall, a smash hit. It sure doesn't hurt that the pastry crust is easily done even by someone with minimal pastry crust experience (i.e., an old dude like me). Got a couple of tweaks to suggest, while we're at it: 1) cut back the sugar in the filling to 1½ cups, particularly if the peaches are ripe; 2) back off the nutmeg to no more than ¼ tsp and substitute anywhere from a pinch to ¼ tsp of ground ginger; 3) make the butter/sugar crust topping optional. For what it's worth, I supplied this as a dessert for a barbecue and got rave reviews, so this one's a winner. FURTHER NOTES: it works quite well with apples as well. Also, using something on the order of 1¼ x the original quantities for the crust would seem to work well for top crust coverage. When using apples, add in at least ¼ tsp of ginger.
