Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Apples and Pecans.

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…


Vegetables are one of the easiest ways to change up your meals. Having another meatloaf or pork chop dish does not seem repetitive when paired with different vegetables or even our favorite vegetables prepared in different ways. Oven roasting is a perfect way to achieve a "new" vegetable dish to serve with your meal. This combination is pleasing and simple to throw together from a well-stocked pantry. 

Brussels Sprouts have good keeping qualities and will be found at the market during this late fall season, I hope you give this dish a try, it really is delicious and goes well with many of your favorite main dishes that show up on the table as family favorites!

Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Apples and Pecans, festive enough for company, yet easy enough for everyday!

Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Apples and Pecans
by the seat of my pants!
400-degree oven OR use your AirFryer!

1 pound Brussels Sprouts
2 medium-sized apples, peeled if desired
1/2 c whole pecans
2 T oil
salt and pepper to taste

Prepare Brussels Sprouts by peeling off outer leaves, trimming stem end and cutting in half. Peel apples if desired, core, cut into quarters, then large chunks.

Place sprouts, apple chunks, and pecans in a medium bowl toss with the oil.

Spread on to a large rimmed pan ( you will want a large enough pan so that each piece is not touching), season with salt and pepper. 

Bake 12 minutes, toss to turn over for browning on all sides, continue baking additional 10 to 12 minutes or until done to your liking. 

Enjoy!

Honey and Applesauce Spelt Cake, whole grain deliciousness!

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…

As part of my ongoing quest to eat healthily, I am experimenting with sugar-free desserts. This cake is just the ticket! Quite perfect just the way it is, it will also be a wonderful master recipe that will lead to may more cakes. Having a master recipe is my long term favorite way to cook. After all, why reinvent the wheel every time you step into the kitchen? 

This master recipe starts out with very basic ingredients, which means if your pantry is stocked, you can whip this up at a moment's notice. It is also what I like to refer to as a wooden spoon recipe because you do not need any electric appliances, just the ingredients, a large bowl, and a wooden spoon. 

This Honey Applesauce Spelt Cake is fine just the way it is, but by now you have noticed, that a bit of cream on the side, is my favorite way to enjoy my desserts! This one, however, would be lovely with a spoon of vanilla yogurt and a drizzle of honey, we opted for whipped cream....plain this will also make a great snack with a glass of milk or a steaming cup of tea or coffee.

Pork is one of our favorites, especially for a festive Sunday dinner! This fall I spent time picking and processing plums from our new home's property. That is probably why this beautiful dish caught my eye. Pork Tenderloin with Balsamic Plum Sauce.

I have noticed a great many recipes for canned apple pie filling floating around the internet. But personally, I do not want to use a product like the clear gel needed for that process. I agree it is simple personal comfort and decision, but apple slices ready to go, that speaks to me. How to can apple slices, is full of great information.

Cabbage Noodle Bows with Fried Eggs seriously caught my eye for a last-minute dinner. Why? Because all of these ingredients are "keeper" and can be found in a moderately stocked pantry. This means dinner can be on the table in a matter of minutes! Plus this recipe is another great way to serve cabbage to the family...

Last but NOT least, a delicious naturally sweetened confection. Pecan Butter Millionaire Bars! I really don't think these need any long-winded reasons to be made.....


I hope you find something new, to try in your kitchen!
