Sunday Supper Suggestion, Maple Cornbread Muffins

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!

Maple Cornbread Muffins, from Horn of the Moon Cookbook."recipes from Vermont's renowned vegetarian restaurant", author Ginny Callan.

I am not a vegetarian, haven't even considered it. But I am a child of the 60's having grown up in Marin County California, and as such, I am attracted to ideas or ideals of a different nature. Having been exposed to the colorful world around me at a very impressionable age, I came away with what I consider to be the best of it all. Vegetarian cookbooks seem to fall into that category, for me; a carnivore.

Also, they usually have great whole grain baked goods and main dish recipes that are full of vegetables. Both of these items, using more whole grain and eating more vegetables, are on my goal list and I hope to become an accomplished cook for all things whole grain and of course lots and lots of vegetables, the fountain of health!

This was another cookbook I was able to pick up for a song, at the local thrift store. The recipe that caught my eye right away was the, Maple Cornbread Muffins. We had these for breakfast this morning, along with bacon and eggs. The maple flavor is mild, but it is a good recipe for a mostly whole grain baked good sweetened with a natural sweetener.

Best of all these are really good, but they are especially good with raspberry jam! While I try very hard to make a recipe exactly as written the first time, I can tell you that my next batch will be 100% whole grain.

They would also be great along side a bowl of soup, chili or a salad.

Blistered Green Bean Salad with Smoked Paprika Vinaigrette Feta Cheese and Chopped Almonds

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…

When I made the Smoked Paprika Vinaigrette I knew it would take well to an assertive vegetable, to make a delicious knife and fork salad. I started thinking about flavor combinations that would marry well and the end result sould be simply delicious and based upon our leftovers, I think I found it!

Green beans are wonderful in a salad, for this recipe when I went to the freezer to get what I thought might be the last package of green beans left from our garden in Vancouver, I was sadly caught by surprise. There were no more packages of our homegrown beans. Yet I still wanted to make this salad, so I had to make a trip to the market. 

Since I was going to use our own green beans right from the freezer, I purchased whole frozen green beans and continued with my salad journey. The good news is that you can use frozen beans without thawing or you could use fresh. I have made my other favorite green bean salad with frozen beans and due to this, I can say with experience, the end results will be remarkedly similar. With that, on to the salad!

Blistered Green Bean Salad with Smoked Paprika Vinaigrette Feta Cheese and Chopped Almonds. Use fresh or frozen green beans!
Blistered Green Bean Salad with Smoked Paprika Vinaigrette Feta Cheese and Chopped Almonds.

Blistered Green Bean Salad with Smoked Paprika Vinaigrette, 
Feta Cheese and Chopped Almonds
by the seat of my pants
serves 4-6

1 pound green beans, fresh or frozen - if using frozen do not thaw
olive oil
garlic salt
fresh ground pepper
1/3-1/2 c large chunks of Feta Cheese
1/4 c whole almonds*, coarsely chopped

Toss the green beans in olive oil until lightly coated. Place in single layer on a large baking pan and broil until blistered and there are golden streaks or spots on the beans, 10-15 minutes or until done in your oven.

This salad was made with frozen green beans! 
Broil until lightly brown and the skin is blistered.

Remove beans from the oven, let cool on the pan. Arrange on a serving platter, season with the garlic salt and fresh ground pepper to taste. 

Blistered Green Bean Salad with Smoked Paprika Vinaigrette Feta Cheese and Chopped Almonds. The perfect first coarse or side dish.

Drizzle the Smoked Paprika Vinaigrette over the top, add the Feta cheese and chopped Almonds. Serve immediately. Refrigerate any leftovers, let come to room temperature, to serve. 

Blistered Green Bean Salad with Smoked Paprika Vinaigrette Feta Cheese and Chopped Almonds. Delicious!

Enjoy!

* When I bring home the big bag of almonds from the store, I place them on a large flat pan and roast until they have that golden brown smell, let cool and then store in a jar. This step always adds great flavor to our food and snacking.

Toffee and Walnut Oatmeal Cookies, another freezer cookie dough recipe!

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…

Toffee and Walnut Oatmeal Cookies. Whole grain goodness in cookie form!
Toffee and Walnut Oatmeal Cookies.

Here is another delicious oatmeal cookie that can be baked all at once or divided for freezer storage and enjoyment later. This cookie is very simple in its ingredients list, making it an easy choice for any well-stocked pantry. There is something utterly charming about the simple flavors of brown sugar and walnuts combined in a crunchy cookie. I hope you give these cookies a try and enjoy them as much as we do. 

Toffee and Walnut Oatmeal Cookies
inspired from: Oatmeal Cookie Dough for the Freezer
makes 4 dozen

1 1/4 c butter ( 2 1/2 sticks) cut into 1/2 inch slices
1 1/2 c brown sugar
1/2 t salt
1 t vanilla
1 egg
1 T water - don't leave this out!

Cut butter into thick slices, add sugars and salt. Beat until creamy. Add vanilla and egg, beat until fluffy, beat in water.

Combine and whisk together:
1 1/2 whole wheat flour - whole wheat flour works very well in these cookies!
1 t soda

3 c Oats

Beat flour mixture into the butter-sugar mixture.

When smooth, reduce beater speed and add the oats. Mixing gently until oats are mixed in evenly.

Divide into 4 parts, wrap, label and freeze for future cookie baking. If you prefer, you will find an excellent tutorial here on the original post.

Toffee and Walnut Oatmeal Cookies. Another freezer storage cookie dough recipe!

To bake, remove a portion of the cookie dough to soften and defrost. Cut into 12 equal pieces (if pieces are square in shape, gently pinch the corners in!) Bake in at 350-degrees for 12-14 minutes or until done in your oven. Let cook a moment, then carefully remove to cool on a wire rack or cotton toweling.

Sunday Supper Suggestion, Pear Creme Pie

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!

Pear Creme Pie, with a whole wheat crust (also dairy free).
Pear Creme Pie

This pie is delicious! I have taken the liberty to give it a slight rename, from Pear Pie to Pear Creme Pie. It does not have any cream, but like many pies from years ago in frugal times, sugar and eggs formed a creamy filling when combined with fruit. And this pie is no exception.

The pie is enhanced with a whole wheat pie crust, which gives the rich (but not too sweet) filling a crunchy, and nutty contrast in taste. You may add a bit of whipped cream or ice cream if you like, but this pie is also wonderful, plain.

Pear Creme Pie.

It is suggested that you use Bosc pears, when I went to the market there were beautiful Bartlett pears, and that is what went into this pie. Something tells me that any ripe pear could be used for this pie, and probably has, through the years.

I had never heard of Pear Pie, but I am glad I found the recipe.

Pear Creme Pie
adapted from:  tasting spoons
450-degree oven

1 9 inch crust, for a whole wheat version, look here.

4 large pears, peeled and sliced
3/4 c sugar
1/4 c flour
1 egg
2 t vanilla
dash salt

1 1/2 T butter, cut into small pieces

cardamom or nutmeg to sprinkle over the top - if desired

Place pear slices into pie crust.

Combine sugar, flour, egg, vanilla and salt. Beat until creamy. Spread mixture over the surface of the pears in the pie shell. Dot with butter. Dust the top of the pie with cardamom or nutmeg if desired.

Pear Creme Pie.

Bake in a preheated 450-degree oven for 10 minutes, reduce heat to 350 and bake 30-45 minutes or until golden and done in your oven.

Let cool completely before serving.



Enjoy!

Chicken Baked with Peaches, Thyme and Dijon

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 I am the most tired, I can come up with the tastiest of dishes. Not always mind you, but often, thankfully! Based on preference and ease of storage, boneless, skinless chicken thighs grace our table often. By default, they are taken out to thaw for our supper. Having a specific recipe in mind is not always the case...

With that said out loud, I am pleased to offer this cooking method. It is simple, but often the simplest of ingredients combined make a great meal. This is also a perfect use for that last jar of sliced peaches that might still sit on your shelf from last years canning. Winter coming to a close sees us often taking the last jar from our shelves as well.

Chicken Baked with Thyme and Dijon. A delicious and easy oven meal.
Chicken Baked with Peaches, Thyme and Dijon.

Chicken Baked with Peaches, Thyme and Dijon
by the seat of my pants
350-degree oven

6-8 chicken thighs, depending upon size
1 16 oz can or jar of sliced peaches drained, reserve 1/4 c syrup
garlic salt
fresh ground pepper
1-2 t dried thyme
1 (rounded) T Dijon mustard

Place chicken in a single layer in the bottom of a 9X13 pan. Season with the garlic salt and fresh ground pepper. Scatter the peach slices around the chicken.

Combine the reserved syrup and Dijon mustard until smooth. Spoon over the chicken and peach slices. Lightly crush the thyme and sprinkle over the top.

Bake 45-55 minutes or until done in your oven. This dish goes perfectly with Cilantro Brown Rice and Red Potatoes.  Both of these dishes are "walk away" easy. Allowing you to complete other chores or better yet, take a moment for yourself...


Chicken Baked with Thyme and Dijon. Easy and delicious, soon to be a family favorite.

Plus I wanted to share this tip with you. This is a perfect way to store your bottled condiments. Use a bit of egg carton to store upside down. This helps prevent watery mustard draining on your sandwich. Plus when the bottle is running low, it is easier to use it up!

Store your mustard, upside down! Try this easy "egg carton" tip. No more mustard water dropping on your sandwich.

Enjoy!

Sunday Supper Suggestion, Italian Potatoes and Beans

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!


We are like many others, relearning about and enjoying real foods, rustic food if you will. My favorite style of rustic food (after our own countries specialties, of course) is Italian. They are among the best in simple ingredients, cooked well and served with pride.


Everyone is familiar with macaroni and beans, and this rendition is none the less delicious!

This small dish of leftovers was all I could get a photo of.......

Cooks notes and possible words of wisdom:  While this was originally a soup, I was in search of a side dish and the flavors as well as the rustic nature were right there.  For a delicious soup, add more water, it is that easy.

Italian Potatoes and Beans
adapted from: Eat this it will make you feel better, by Dom DeLuise
serves 6-8

1 small onion, diced small
3 cloves of garlic, minced
2 ribs of celery, diced small
1 large carrot, peeled and diced small
1 T olive oil

6 medium potatoes, peeled -cut in half lengthwise, set 1 piece (1/2 potato) aside, dice the remainder in large dice
2 c chicken stock
1 c water - only if needed
2 cans canneli beans drained or your own homemade white creamy bean, drained well
1/2 t oregano
black pepper

for serving: Tomato Serendipity

In a large flat pan, saute the garlic and onion until wilted and fragrant.  Add celery and carrot, saute for a minute more. Add all of the potatoes and the chicken stock.


Bring to a boil, reduce heat, simmer until potatoes are tender.

Remove the large piece and mash well, return to the pot and stir into the broth. Add the beans, simmer additional 10 minutes. Stir in the oregano and fresh ground black pepper to taste.

If the pan sauce seems too thin, boil off a few minutes to thicken.

Italian Potatoes and Beans, your family will love this delicious side dish.

Serve with the Tomato Serendipity on the side for each to flavor as wanted.

Enjoy!

Catsup and Mustard Baked Beans, a slow cooker recipe

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…

Beans are a common food in our household. My husband, in particular, enjoys them often, and often they are served as a side dish with a sandwich. We enjoy having the convenience of homemade bean dishes ready to go, stored safely in the freezer. For the most part, I have always made beans with some sort of meat for flavoring, but more and more I wanted to make beans that are just as delicious without meat. And through an inspired moment, I think I have found a way!

Honestly, I had originally soaked these beans for another recipe, and the timing was wrong to follow through with that plan. And yet, I had these beans already soaked ready to go...

Remembering that I wanted to try to make beans without the addition of meat, I came up with adding a bit of summertime to the beans and it was perfect, just what I had been looking for. Who knew such a small amount of these common foods could make all the difference? I hope you try them, they are so good! I have another batch in the slow cooker right now.

Catsup and Mustard Baked Beans, a slow cooker recipe. Meatless and vegan.
Catsup and Mustard Baked Beans.

Catsup and Mustard Baked Beans
by the seat of my pant

1 pound navy beans, soak overnight or use a quick soak, drained well
1 large onion, cut 3 thin slices from end, leave the remaining onion whole, mince the slices
1 T salt
2 T molasses
6 T sugar
1 T Ballpark mustard (simple yellow mustard)
2 T catsup
3 1/2 - 4 c boiling water*

Catsup and Mustard Baked Beans, a slow cooker recipe. Mince part of the onion, leaving the rest whole.

Place beans in the bottom of the slow cooker, add the whole onion piece, scatter the remaining ingredients evenly over the top. Add water, cook on low for 8 hours or until tender.

Catsup and Mustard Baked Beans, a slow cooker recipe. Cook a pot of beans weekly.

* Depending upon your slow cooker, you will need up to 4 cups of water. However, if the beans are a bit "soupy" when fully cooked, turn the cooker up to high and allow to cook until the sauce has thickened to your liking.

Smoked Paprika Vinaigrette

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…


Smoked Paprika Vinaigrette. Make your own salad dressings, easy and delicious.
Smoked Paprika Vinaigrette over sliced cucumbers.

Salad dressing used to be pretty much the same old trio, you know the one, ranch, Italian and thousand island. Our refrigerator was much like eating dinner out, "and which dressing would you like on your salad this evening, ranch, Italian or thousand island?" 

Not anymore.
Smoked Paprika Vinaigrette. Make your own salad dressings, easy and delicious.
Best Dressed, a book full of delicious salad dressings and salad combinations.

I had the opportunity to check out Best Dressed, from the library. And what a great book! It is going on my wish list. The best part of this book is that is as much a guide for enjoying salads of many different vegetables, as it is, a recipe book. Delicious suggestions are offered on ways to mix and match the different dressings to various vegetables. Like I said, going on my wish list...

When I make a new salad dressing, the first offering is always a very simple dish. This allows one to taste the combination of ingredients used in the dressing and get a clear understanding of the true flavor of the dressing. From there, anything goes, and do I have plans for this one! But today, what I offer is a simple dish of sliced cucumbers and a drizzle of this ruddy dressing. I hope you give it a try...

Smoked Paprika Vinaigrette. No more bottled salad dressings!
Smoked Paprika Vinaigrette over cucumber slices.

Smoked Paprika Vinaigrette
adapted from: Best Dressed
makes approximately 1 1/3 c

1 large clove garlic - remove the green germ in the center - see photo below
1 t salt
fresh ground pepper
2 t honey
3 T sherry vinegar
1 small shallot, minced finely
1 t Dijon mustard
4 t smoked paprika

3/4 - 1 c olive oil or avocado oil (UPDATE: I prefer to use 3/4 c oil for this recipe)

Smoked Paprika Vinaigrette. No more bottled salad dressings!
Remove the green germ stem, it imparts a hot flavor according to the authors of Best Dressed

Mince the garlic into a very fine pulp. Combine remaining ingredients through in a screw-top jar, shake well to combine, add oil, shake again.

Refrigerate until serving.

Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before serving to allow olive oil to melt. Shake well before serving on salad vegetables.

Enjoy!
