Chilled Mint Cups

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…

Do you still have a little bit of Christmas at your house? If you do, you are in luck, because I am going to show you how to make a delicious dessert with this candy.

You have the option of making a 9X13 pan to serve as squares or use 15 muffin cups for individual desserts.
Chilled Mint Cups, make ahead and store in your freezer.

The best part about the muffin cups is that you can freeze them. Imagine how nice it will be to have a delicious dessert waiting in the freezer. Cold, delicious, minty, waiting. See, I told you this was a really good idea!

Chilled Mint Cups or Squares
adapted from:  My friend, Sue K
makes 15 servings

1 pint of whipping cream
4 oz of peppermint candy canes
2 c mini marshmallows
1 "sleeve" graham crackers

Turn the graham crackers into crumbs. I have found this is easy if you use a 2 step process.

Grate the crackers into the processor bowl. Remove the grating disk, insert blade and pulse a couple of times to break up any larger pieces.

Use half of the crumbs to sprinkle in the bottom of a 9X13 pan for squares or into 15 muffin cups. Set aside.

Break up the candy cane into smaller pieces. Then pulverize into "sugar" in the food processor.

Whip the cream to soft peaks, fold in crushed candy, then fold in the marshmallows.

Divide mixture into the muffin cups and sprinkle with remaining graham cracker crumbs.

Chill for 8 hours or overnight, enjoy now and freeze any leftovers for future desserts.

Green Bean Cobbler, AKA "the other green bean casserole"

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…
This green bean casserole is very good and a perfect way to enjoy those green beans put away in the freezer from last years garden. Of course, it is just as delicious with green beans bought from the grocery store. It is also nothing like the more famous holiday green bean casserole, this one is not too salty or processed, it is fresh and delicious! 
Green beans, sour cream, cheddar cheese, and a crunchy topping, what is not to like? The author suggests that this casserole is made with either garlic or onions. And I think she is correct, both might overpower the sour cream covering the green beans. This first time I will make it with garlic and the next time will be with onions.....

Southern Green Beans

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…
Green beans are in our freezer for use this winter. Having grown in our garden this summer. I have never been a big fan of green beans, until growing our own. There is something satisfying about cooking what you grow. There is a lot we have learned about growing what you will cook.....

We were successful with green beans last year and again this year. However, we did not grow the same beans this year. This year we grew tri-colored beans. They are beautiful as well as tasty. You will see that once cooked, magically the beans are all the same color.

Taco Pickles

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 eat Tex-Mex, I enjoy a spicy, vinegary condiment on my food. And when we have fish for dinner, I want something with a bit of a bite to it, to add some excitement. Fish can be a bit tame on that dinner plate. You could also tuck a spoonful of this crispy, spicy, sweet and puckery delight in a sandwich or anywhere else a spicy flavor is desired!

For this recipe we used carrots stored in our root cellar from last fall, I think we can call the root cellar project a success!
