Chicken and Onions baked with Rosemary, Toasted Crumbs and Parmesan Cheese

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…


Sometimes when we cook, the ingredients are the recipe. I would suspect that this is exactly how all food was cooked in many kitchens for many years. Food based on what you held in your pantry or had just harvested from the garden or while out hunting. That coupled with frugal ways, led to some great dining experiences.

While this might not be considered gourmet, it is very very delicious and we shall enjoy it again when cooking from our pantry. I hope you give it a try or use it as a starting point for your own journey of cooking with what you have. Take a chance, life is delicious! PS, this dish is great served with sweet potatoes baked in their own jackets.

Poached Rhubarb

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

I have a fondness for certain foods. I don't think they are used often enough in the average American diet and because I am usually a champion of the underdog, I will try and come up with an exceptional recipe using these foods. On that list is my personal favorite, the rhubarb plant.

Rhubarb is gaining in popularity once again and for good reason. Once established it is hardy, and produces food for you, year after year, just like a good friend. Rhubarb is also easy to grow, or some would have you believe. Not me, however. I have struggled for the last 5 years (or more, some of these plants came from another home of mine...) to get this rhubarb bed going. But I must confess, the green thumb in this family belongs to my dear husband.

How to Poached Rhubarb. Delicious on it's own or as a sauce over cake or ice cream.

I prefer crimson rhubarb because it is pretty. In the garden and in any recipe once cooked. But never you mind all that, if I am offered green stick rhubarb cooked up in any recipe, I will enjoy every bite of it. Rhubarb pairs well with many other foods, making it a natural for any home gardener.

One recipe I return to time and time again is this poached rhubarb. The recipe is offered with a range of sugar, so that you may make this and use it for different serving needs. When served as a poached fruit, I use the smaller amount of sugar. Cooked this way rhubarb makes a wonderful breakfast along with a slice of toast and a spoonful of vanilla yogurt. As a dessert sauce or the actual dessert itself, I use the full amount of sugar listed. Keep in mind that rhubarb is tart, and that tartness won't be covered over with sugar, the sugar will enhance the tart flavor deliciously!

How to Poached Rhubarb.

I hope you enjoy this as much as I do. This is made a couple of times a month in our kitchen.  While I call this poached, this original source calls the method steamed, and it is, with nothing added during the initial process. This is a very easy recipe, mostly hands-free (no stirring) and really delicious!

How to Poached Rhubarb. Easy hands-free double boiler method!

Poached Rhubarb
adapted from:  A Cake Bakes in Brooklyn
equipment needed: a double boiler or adapt by using one pan sitting inside a larger pan

1 qt sliced rhubarb (about a pound or so)

1/2 - 3/4 c sugar
1/4 t soda
dash of salt
1/2 c boiling water

Fill the bottom pan 1/3 full of water, fit the top pan on top. Add the rhubarb to the top pan, cover. Bring the boiler to a boil, reduce heat to simmer, and let rhubarb steam for 20-30 minutes, or until tender. Do not stir, or you will end up with rhubarb sauce....

When the rhubarb is tender, combine the sugar, soda, salt and boiling water. Stir until dissolved, gently pour over the steamed rhubarb. Cover and steam an addition 2-3 minutes. Carefully pour or spoon cooked rhubarb into a serving bowl, and let cool completely.

How to Poach Rhubarb. Perfect over Gingerbread or any cake of your choice!

Makes approximately 1 quart of poached rhubarb. Which is wonderful over Gingerbread, especially from Miss Edna Lewis!

Enjoy!

Sunday Supper Suggestion, Raw Asparagus and Spicy Dunk!

Celebrate the family with your own Sunday Supper. Sunday Supper is one of our favorite ways to bring the family together! We offer the following suggestion, and hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

One of the items on our food pyramid is raw. Right along with protein, complex carbohydrates, healthy fats, fruits, and vegetables, is another category - raw.

Raw does not have to always be a salad, and it is best if it is not. Salads while delicious can become boring. So mix it up a bit and put out something different for the family to crunch on. Give thought to any and all vegetables your family might not like cooked (turnips as an example) on a tray with a dunk or a dip and see what happens. It is not unusual for a raw vegetable to be sweeter than the cooked version.

Tonight I stirred together a simple "dunk" and added some fresh asparagus. It doesn't have to be this combination. You can add anything to the base and get a custom flavor for your family. We liked this one and will mix it up again.....

Raw Asparagus and Spicy Dunk
adapted from: what we had on hand.....

Snap the tough ends off enough asparagus for your family, I would suggest 6-8 spears per person. Let soak in tepid water for a few minutes (5 minutes or so) for the dirt and sand to sink to the bottom of the water. Carefully lift out, drain on cotton toweling to dry.

For the dunk:

Mayonnaise
Sour Cream
Something Else, we used Sweet Thai Chili Sauce, but please use what your family will enjoy.


I used about 2 T of each ingredient, mixing well. This was just right for the two of us. Increase as needed for your family.

Place the smooth dunk in a small bowl, and surround it with the fresh asparagus.

Next time I might try equal parts mayo, sour cream, honey, and mustard......

Enjoy!
