Creamy Banana and Kiwi Parfaits

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…

Creamy Banana and Kiwi Parfaits, no grains and no sugar.
Creamy Banana and Kiwi Parfaits

I have put these flavors together before and while they tasted superb, but the photo was horrible! A terrible, no good, horrible food photo is usually the result of a delicious surprise when one is playing around in the kitchen, and the end result does, in fact, deserve to be shared. If you are a food blogger, well then it stands to reason that some of the blog posts will have delicious food with a terrible photo....

The down side to blogging a recipe with a horrible photo is that not everyone will take the time to read beyond the photo. So in celebration of delicious food with horrible photos everywhere, I will be repeating some of these recipes, only this time I will include a photo showing how delicious the food really is!

Plus I really think you will enjoy this healthy dessert. It is simple to double or triple depending on your guest or family count. Oh, and did I say, it was healthy?


Creamy Banana and Kiwi Parfaits

1 large or 2 small very ripe bananas, chilled (put the banana into the fridge in the morning...)

Mash the banana, fold in the honey yogurt.


Layer the banana mixture and the kiwi fruit pieces in an attractive glass serving dishes. Top with the reserved half slices. Chill until serving time.

Enjoy!

Watermelon with Mint and Feta

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…

Yesterday my dear husband got the mint settled into its new home in the side yard. This tub of mint has traveled with us to two homes. We (that would be my husband actually) just dig it up and take it with us. Mint is one of those garden items that you want to have some control over, so we plant it is a large heavy duty garden pot, and sink that planter pot into the ground. It has the comforts of being in the ground for temperature control and we get to control how far it spreads and takes over (it does not).


Soon after, the mint got settled I remembered this salad. You know the one with mint and feta to offer a salty contrast to the sweet fruit. I love flavor combinations like this one, it is always refreshing and actually very good for you as well.

But today we are having some with dinner.......

Refrigerate until serving.

Enjoy!

How to make Brown Sugar, for your homemade household

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 just finished a ten-day stretch at work, and now I have a four day weekend in compensation. For ten days I have missed cooking, but I am so very thankful for a sweet husband who kept me fed as the days ticked by. The one task I wanted to complete in the kitchen (before starting to cook!) was a wee bit of organization.

I love our home on the peninsula, but the kitchen, while it is attractive, does not offer the storage and organization that our previous home did. So there was only one thing to do, get busy, more creative, and get it better organized, so I did.

For our breakfast, we had oatmeal with toasted oats (toast your oats before you cook them, the time spent is worth it.....) with raisins, dates, coconut butter and brown sugar. Today's breakfast used up the rest of the commercial brown sugar that came with us to the peninsula when we moved.

Turn your organic sugar into brown sugar.
Homemade Brown Sugar and Dark Brown Sugar

We don't use a lot of sugar normally, yet my goal was to make brown sugar from the organic evaporated cane sugar in our sugar canister. Our tastes have changed in the last few years and sweets are not the first thought when planning a meal.

Brown sugar is very simple to make. You can also customize it for your family's preferences. I do like to have a light brown sugar as well as a dark brown sugar on hand for cooking and baking. Below are the formulas I used. Feel free to adjust for your own taste and preference. Since I only have one sugar bear, the dark brown sugar is stored in a mason jar with a screw on cap.

Soft brown sugar.
Terra Cota Sugar Bear, help keep brown sugar soft in dry climates.

Note: if you have a texture preference, evaporated cane sugar is a larger size than standard sugar. If you like the smaller size (especially over your oatmeal, like we do) you may want to buzz the sugar in a food processor for a few moments before adding the molasses.

Light Brown Sugar
Makes 6 cups

6 c evaporated cane sugar
1/3 c molasses

Drizzle the molasses over the top of the sugar in a large bowl. Using a whisk, stir and fold the sugar over and over until the molasses has been distributed evenly. Store sugar in a canister with a tight-fitting lid, or if you have a terracotta sugar bear, place a drop of water on the bear, spread the water around over the top and gently place it on the sugar. Cover and store. Use in all recipes calling for brown sugar.


Dark Brown Sugar
Makes 4 cups

4 c evaporated cane sugar
1/3 c molasses

Drizzle the molasses over the top of the sugar in a large bowl. Using a whisk, stir and fold the sugar over and over until the molasses had been distributed evenly. Store sugar in a canister with a tight-fitting lid, or if you have a terracotta sugar bear, place a drop of water on the bear, spread the water around over the top and gently place it on the sugar. Cover and store. Use in all recipes calling for brown sugar.

Homemade organic brown sugar is easy!

Butter Roasted Radishes

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…

Who remembers eating raw radishes dipped in salt? Or sliced over a salad? Maybe grated and used in a roast beef sandwich (which is delicious by the way)? But cooked? I know; cooked radishes were a new venture for me, but after this salad, I was hooked.

Butter Roasted Radishes, buttery, salty and delicious!
Butter Roasted Radishes

These radishes are simple and just right for a weeknight feast. A little butter, a few radishes, some salt and pepper and you have a wonderful side dish.

Butter Roasted Radishes
adapted from: add a pinch

2 bunches radishes, cleaned and cut in half
1 T butter

Melt the butter in a skillet, add radish halves, toss to coat. Roast 10 minutes, stir, roast 10 minutes more. Season with salt and pepper. Serves 2-4.

Enjoy!

Pickle Chicken

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…

We have been capturing the simple joys in preparing our meals these last couple of weeks and having a good time with this new routine. Since my final move to the peninsula and starting a new job (whew!) my other desire was to get back to cooking. Creative, healthy and delicious food.

We start our meals by stopping at the organic market and purchasing produce for the week. Keeping in line with freshness standards, we eat the most perishable items first and savor the better keeping items as the week progresses. Romaine lettuce is my favorite to purchase, not only for the length that it stays fresh in the fridge but also for the hearty crunch it offers.

From there we find complimentary main dish food to round out a pleasant meal for the close of day. Today we are having a very simple grilled chicken, with a funny name. Pickle Chicken. Our daughter was telling us about the famous chicken sandwiches at Dollywood. And while none of us has ever been, apparently they sell thousands of these chicken sandwiches daily.

I think you could use any pickle brine, at this time we had just finished a jar of pickled Green Beans. Don't be concerned about over doing it withe the brine, we let ours marinade all day and it was just right, tender and juicy but not over-salted.

Seriously those kinds of numbers can't be wrong, so let's get the grill warmed up and start grilling. You won't be sorry!

Pickle Chicken, use that pickle brine to marinade and tenderize.

Combine brine and chicken, making sure the chicken is coated all over.

Let marinade overnight or all day, if you start the marinade process early in the morning and grill for the evening meal.

Have your husband grill until golden ( Shhhh, but listen, I have found having your husband grill the meat for dinner is what really makes for a quick week night meal).

Serve.

I love an easy meal like this, (and now you know the secret to easy week night meals!).


Enjoy!

Almond Butter Cookies

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…

Part of my quest to make the best food we can eat is coupled with making the right amount for our little family. As I have offered before, learning to cook less, has been much more difficult than I would ever have imagined.....

What it comes down to, in reality, is that I don't want to eat the same food as leftovers, day after day. Which was happening until I began to learn new recipes, and cook smaller amounts. It is still a focus and will continue to be because fresh food is my favorite kind to enjoy!

Three Ingredient, Almond Butter Cookies.
Almond Butter Cookies

These cookies are great, it makes one sheet of cookies, not several dozen. They are easy to make and they are delicious. I have shared this recipe if you will as peanut butter cookies, but the almond butter version is my new favorite. My guess is, you could make these with any nut butter. I have in the past, in a frugal moment made these cookies with a sunflower seed butter, and they too were delicious.

Almond Butter Cookies
adapted from:  recipes from the internet, that we all use
350-degree oven

1 c almond butter
1 egg
1 c sugar

Combine well, scoop out onto a baking sheet into 15 cookies.


Using a large fork, flatten gently in a criss-cross pattern. Bake 12-15 minutes or until done in your oven.


Note:  the longer baking time will produce a crisp cookie, the shorter time a chewy cookie.


Enjoy!

Big Batch Nutella 3 Ingredient Brownies

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 spent a great deal of time rearranging the cupboards and pantries at the peninsula house. As is the case with moving, you actually have to live with something in the wrong place, to know where to put it, and that was certainly the case for the dishes and the food. So the day was spent creating a dish pantry that includes the daily dishes, glassware, flatware, cloth napkins and kitchen linens.

Next, it was the food pantry and finally the baking pans. The upper cupboards are quite shallow, they are also quite tall. And somewhere along the way, I have lost some of my height and it was an uncomfortable (if not impossible) stretch to retrieve dishes from the upper cupboards.

Yet quite easy to grasp a bottle of vinegar or shaker of spice. You might be wondering what all this has to do with a big batch of Nutella Brownies. Well you see, we had an emergency Nutella sighting that day at the peninsula house. We came across a 35.3 oz jar of Nutella in the pantry that had to be used. Because let's be honest, wasting Nutella is never right!

Three Ingredient, Big Batch Nutella Brownies.

Enter these brownies.....

Big Batch Nutella Brownies

Note:  these brownies will satisfy the two kinds of brownie people in the world. Those that like the crisp/chewy edges and those that like the tender chewy center. If you are not in the first group cut a one-inch border around the pan and save those pieces for chocolate crumbs.

1 33.5 oz jar Nutella
4 eggs
1 c self-rising flour (you can find our whole grain recipe here)


Combine in a large bowl, spread in a prepared 9X13 pan, bake 30-35 minutes or until done in your oven.


Hint, the toothpick will come out with some chocolate at 30 minutes but the outer edges will be Firmer.


Enjoy!

Three Ingredient Pineapple Thai Chicken, a slow cooker meal

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…

We have made this delicious dish a couple of different ways, one is with crushed pineapple and the other is with slices of pineapple. Each version is delicious, and each has a slightly different personality. When made with crushed pineapple, there is pineapple in the sauce. When made with sliced pineapple, the sauce is smooth and totally delicious!

Three Ingredient Pineapple Thai Chicken

Three Ingredient Pineapple Thai Chicken, made with crushed pineapple is not pretty, but it is darn good! We had some crushed pineapple left over from the Best Carrot Cake, so my frugal side took over and this chicken dish was born.

During baking the delicious sauce forms. It is not too sweet or too hot, just right to dip crusty bread or drizzle on your favorite cooked grain.

Three Ingredient Pineapple Thai Chicken. Easy and delicious! You may use slices or crushed pineapple.

Three Ingredient Pineapple Thai Chicken

serves 4-6
RV Kitchens, bake in a 350-degree oven 45-55 minutes or until tender.


6-8 skinless boneless chicken thighs
1 - 8 oz can crushed pineapple (we use juice pack)
1/2 - 3/4 c sweet red chili sauce (the more you use, the "warmer" the sauce will be)

Arrange chicken thighs in the bottom of the slow cooker overlapping if necessary (this works great in a 9X13 size).


Divide the pineapple and the juice evenly over the thighs, then drizzle the red chili sauce over evenly.

Cook on low, 41/2 - 6 hours or until done in your cooker.

Fork tender and delicious!

Enjoy!

Kiwi and Grapefruit, a simple and delicious pleasure

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…

Last month at work, we held our annual November luncheon for the tenants. This meal is essentially a Thanksgiving meal with Turkey and most of the trimmings, as well as various potluck dishes provided by the tenants. One of my tenants brought the most beautiful arrangement of sliced fruits. Visually the platter was stunning, but unfortunately with so many choices on the table, little of the fruit was eaten.


Due to our conversation difficulties (she speaking Russian while  I do not, and my speaking English while she does very little) I was not able to let her know to take her dish home when she left the luncheon. Not wanting to waste the food, I covered it well and stored it in the refrigerator we use to hold sodas. As things happen the next day my own lunch was a bit small and I remembered the fruit plate in the refrigerator. I decided to help myself to the sliced kiwis, and when I was dishing up, I noticed that under the kiwi slices were slices of grapefruit.

I love a good grapefruit, but I have also never had it with, anything. My first thought was, dang! But you must remember I was actually hungry. I rarely and I do mean rarely go out for lunch. And that day was no exception, besides I had eaten what I had brought and was just needing a bite or two more, not a whole meal. So I decided to suck it up and just eat the kiwi slices.......


And they were delicious!

They had softened in the acid of the grapefruit and taken in just enough of the grapefruit flavor that they were more delicious than anything I could imagine. Sometimes the simplest pleasures are the best. Let me introduce to you, this kiwi and grapefruit combo. While it is not a gorgeous dish in looks, it is in flavor. And that my friends, is the best food to share!

Kiwi and Grapefruit Winter Fruit Bowl
Kiwi and Grapefruit Winter Fruit Bowl

Kiwi and Grapefruit Winter Fruit Bowl
serves 4-6

4 ripe kiwi
1 ruby grapefruit

Peel and slice the kiwi, placing in a shallow bowl.

Cut grapefruit in half, spoon out the sections. You don't have to be careful, you will actually need to break the grapefruit into smallish pieces.

Scatter the grapefruit pieces over the kiwi slices. Squeeze any juices left in grapefruit rinds over the fruit.
Cover and chill until serving, at least 2 hours.

Enjoy!

Braised Cabbage with Bacon

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…

Seriously, you can never go wrong with bacon, especially when you pair it with cabbage. This is delicious as well as easy. This is a side dish to let braise while you get the rest of dinner done!

Braised Cabbage with Bacon
Braised Cabbage with Bacon

Braised Cabbage with Bacon
adapted from:  2 favorite foods we have in our kitchen!
serves 6 or more
45-60 minutes for braising

1 medium size head of cabbage
6 - 8 slices bacon, chopped
garlic salt

Cut bacon into strips (scissors work great for this task), or smaller if desired. Brown in a dutch oven or cast iron skillet.



Remove outside leaves from cabbage, core, and slice into 1/4 inch slices.

Lesson learned, use a dutch oven for braising!

When bacon is brown, remove excess drippings if your bacon is really fatty. Add cabbage, sprinkle with garlic salt. Toss until everything is combined. Reduce heat, cover and let cook 15-20 minutes. Gently bring the cooked cabbage up from the bottom, letting the raw cabbage from on top fall. Cover again and let cook. Repeat until cabbage is tender, soft and ready for serving, 45-60 minutes.




Nothing left, but the cleanup!

Enjoy!

Marcella Hazan's Tomato Sauce with Onion and Butter

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…

We had a lovely dinner on Sunday, sharing our table with some friends, conversation, and good food. One dish I made was the now famous Tomato Sauce with Onion and Butter. All of the reviews you might have read about this sauce are simply true. It is smooth, rich and delicious!

It goes well with any meal plan you might want. Since we were cooking for a couple of dietary restrictions, I chose a simple meal of grilled chicken, baked polenta, this sauce and a couple of vegetable side dishes. A roasted cauliflower and braised swiss chard from the garden.

But let's return to the sauce. All the needed ingredients are pantry staples, making this a sauce to return to time and time again.

Marcella Hazen's Tomato Sauce with Onion and Butter
adapted from Marcella Hazen
Makes about 3 cups, enough for one pound of pasta

1 28 oz can of top quality tomatoes, with juices
1 medium to large onion, peeled then cut in half crosswise
1/2 stick butter
1 T brown sugar (this is my addition, you may certainly leave this out)

Marcella Hazan's Tomato Sauce with Onion and Butter.
Marcella Hazan's Tomato Sauce with Onion and Butter.

Place all ingredients into a saucepan, bring to a boil, reduce heat, simmer for 45 minutes. Discard onion ( or save for adding to your next pot of soup),, mash tomato pieces with a potato masher if desired.

Serve over hot pasta.

Enjoy!

Fluffy Biscuit Muffins

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…

We have developed a pattern here in our little kitchen. One where we cook on Sundays, to be fed well the rest of the week. With the work day and commuting times, we would not eat until nearly 7 pm otherwise. For me, that is too late because by then I would be so hungry that I would have snacked my way through enough food for it to be the meal......

Fluffy Biscuit Muffins, another self-rising flour recipe.
Fluffy Biscuit Muffins

We are also devoted to eating healthy with a bit of "treat" thrown in, and I am also a big fan of leftovers. We could call them planned-overs because we cook the way we do, on purpose. But the term leftovers has never been thought of as a bad thing, ever! As some of you know, we have plenty of cookbooks to choose from, so cooking is never boring around here.

The one area I continue to struggle with is smaller portioned recipes for certain foods, like fresh muffins or desserts. Soups, stews, and casseroles all freeze very well. We call upon these kinds of foods for our meals on a regular basis. Cook a vegetable or toss a salad and dinner is done, except.......


Sometimes you need something more, something freshly made, something  made for that meal, a task to connect you to home and disconnect you from work. And while I have been in this blurry state of being for some time, I was not quite able to put it to words. I have also been on a search, for recipes for just the two of us. Simple yet enjoyable foods that can be made up, quickly, just for the two of us, and just for this meal. While I love leftovers, I don't want every recipe I make to produce leftovers......

All of our cookbooks have these colorful tabs, so many things we want to make!

While this quick bread recipe is in the form of a muffin, make no mistake, these are pure biscuit in taste! I have already confessed that I am a lazy biscuit baker, so you had to know this was right up my alley. And to calm any concerns about the mayonnaise, no these do not taste like mayo (I actually love mayo, by the way). These are biscuits in an easy to handle muffin shape for those busy nights when only fresh biscuits will do.....

First I made some self-rising flour:

adapted from:  King Arthur

Easy to make, Self-Rising Flour
I increase the whole wheat flour on each new batch, until 100% whole grain.
4 c whole wheat flour
4 c flour - divided
4 T baking powder
2 t salt

Place the whole wheat flour and 3 cups of regular flour in a large bowl. Place the baking powder and salt into the bottom of the one cup measuring cup and add enough flour to make the final cup of flour for the total of 8 cups. Add the final cup of flour to the bowl and whisk thoroughly.

Store in a cool dry place, you can refrigerate due to the whole wheat flour, if you prefer. This can be used in any recipe calling for self-rising flour, like these biscuits....


Fluffy Biscuit Muffins
adapted from: Taste of Home, Ultimate 5 Ingredient Recipes
425 oven

1 c self-rising flour
2 T full fat mayonnaise
1/2 c milk

Cut mayonnaise into flour until mixture resembles course crumbs.


Stir in the mix, just until mixed, do not over mix!


Spoon into 4 prepared muffin cups. Bake 14-16 minutes or until done in your oven.



Loosen biscuit and turn on their sides to prevent soggy bottoms, serve with butter and jam.

Serves 2 - 4

This basic recipe begs to be played with, you can bet I will be sharing additional biscuit muffins in the future.

Enjoy!
