Spanish rice

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 love cooking with vinegar, it always adds a fresh flavor to food. And this dish is the perfect one to see how vinegar can work to enhance the flavor of your finished dish, without making it sour. Yes, vinegar can be sour, but if used correctly is it delicious!

This dish is easy to adapt for more servings. Simply double the water and the rice, call the family and enjoy dinner together.

Spanish Rice, fresh, homemade and delicious!

Whole Grain Flatbread

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…

Now that we are living in our RV and traveling full time, we can have periods where a simple staple, such as bread is on our shopping list, but not in our cupboard. Fortunately, people have been making and enjoying flatbread for centuries. I came across a recipe for whole grain flatbread while reading My Pantry, by Alice Waters. From there I adapted this versatile recipe to use just 3 ingredients, perfect for any RV kitchen. And perfect to stir up on a moment's notice when you too have discovered that bread is on your shopping list, but not in your cupboard.



The real beauty in this simple bread, however, is the ability to freshen it over a simple gas flame, and fortunately, all RV cooks have one!

Whole Wheat Flat Bread
inspired by: My Pantry, by Alice Walters

2 c whole wheat self-rising flour
2 T oil
2/3 c warm water
additional whole wheat flour for shaping

In a medium sized bow. combine flour, oil, and water. Beat with a spoon, until well mixed and the mixture forms a solid ball around the mixing spoon. You my knead by hand or  "knead" the dough in the bowl, by folding and pressing with the back of a spoon, continue doing this until the dough begins to firm up. Cover with a towel and let rest 30 minutes.

Divide the dough into 12 balls, note: you may need additional flour if the dough is sticky.

Using a rolling pin, roll the balls into an oval shape approximately 3 1/2 X 7 inches.

Alternately, you may press the dough with the palm of your hand, until the approximate size is achieved. I have found the plate and palm method superior over a rolling pin...

Using a cast iron pan, over medium heat, cook 2 or 3 flatbread at a time until firm and with golden brown "freckles", turn and repeat for the other side. Lay on toweling to cool.

Serve warm and fresh from the skillet.











To serve the next day, blister a flatbread over a gas flame (carefully!) while using tongs.

For breakfast add a drizzle of honey or a bit of cream cheese and some jam. For lunch a smear of hummus or nut butter. You can, of course, enjoy the flatbread as an open face sandwich, just pick your favorite toppings!

Enjoy!

Browned Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies, the best chocolate chip cookie I have EVER made!

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…

Browned Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies, the best cookies I have ever made!
Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

These are the best chocolate chip cookie I have ever made. So by extension, they are also the best chocolate chip cookies I have ever eaten! Plus there is a convenient bonus to these cookies, you don't have to wait for the butter to come to room temperature before you start mixing everything together. Which makes this a great spur of the moment treat.

Almost like instant gratification, in chocolate chip cookie form. But hey, don't take my word for it, start browning some butter.....

Place the 4 slices of butter in bottom of the mixer bowl, add the brown sugar and sugar, add cooled butter and mix until creamy.




Next add the whole egg, the yolk, and vanilla, beating well.
