Welcome to Our Sunday Cafe! We have a new look.

Offering food that is not fussy, but always delicious and easy to prepare. Real food, with real ingredients, providing real enjoyment at mealtime…thank you for dropping by!

You can't go wrong with a few ready to go already prepared condiments in your pantry. This recipe for Tomato Serendipity is just what you are looking for! As convenient as the green can of cheese, but with so much more flavor. 

We love cooking dinner for the family! There doesn't even have to be anything special to celebrate. And actually, in these busy times, just being able to get together, is special enough! So we did, we prepared a lovely meal, and everyone including the two of us had a great time. 

Tomato Serendipity, a zesty dried tomato and cheese seasoning blend

One dish, in particular, that was a surprise hit was, Italian Potatoes, and Beans. It really is delicious! I must confess, I am a condiment woman. I love them! Without any overkill, if a condiment can enhance with just a sprinkle of this or a splash of that, well what is not to like? 

Then suddenly I got this idea for a very simple two-ingredient topping. Is it good? Yes! Which we now call Tomato Serendipity, and since sharing is what we do around here, let's make some, shall we?

For guests put in a serving dish, add a sprinkling spoon! For all other times, and there will be many, use a shaker jar! Ironically that is the lid from the last cheese container...
