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…

Nova Scotia Cream Cake, blueberries, sour cream, delicious!
Nova Scotia Cream Cake
When I first spotted this dessert, I knew right away I wanted to make it! Right now we are using up last years blueberries, getting ready to put away this year's crop. Although the recipe calls for fresh, I thought I would simply use what I had and adapt, this cake was made from freezer stored blueberries and it turned out wonderful!

Nova Scotia Cream Cake

adapted from: Concetta's cafe
375 degrees

Crust ingredients:
1 1/2 c flour
1 1/2 c sugar
1 1/2 t baking powder
1 cube (1/2 c) butter, sliced

1 t vanilla
1 egg

Combine sugar, flour, baking powder and butter in the food processor, process until "crumbly". In a medium-large bowl, beat egg and vanilla, stir in the crumb mixture. Mix lightly until larger crumbs form. Place mixture into prepared 9-inch springform pan.  Press gently.

4 c fresh blueberries (I used IQF blueberries)

Spread blueberries evenly over the top of the crumb mixture.


2 c sour cream
1 egg
1 t vanilla
1/2 c sugar

Beat egg, vanilla, and sugar until smooth. Stir in the sour cream. Pour mixture over blueberries.

Spread to cover evenly. Bake 45 minutes, check to make sure the top is not over-browning. Bake an additional 15 - 20 minutes. If using frozen berries, at 45 minutes, reduce heat to 350 and make up to 45 minutes more. The top will be firm and the edges will be golden brown.

The hard part of this recipe? Waiting for this to cool so I can enjoy a slice.......

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

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!
