350-degree oven

Cooks wisdom:  This cake is best when freshly baked.

Very Pineapple Upside Down Cake
serves 8

1 20 oz juice-packed crushed pineapple - drain well and reserve juice
1/4 c butter
2/3 c brown sugar



1/3 c shortening, we used coconut oil
1 c sugar
1 egg
1/2 t salt
1 t baking powder
1/2 t baking soda
1 1/3 c flour
3/4 c reserved pineapple juice (original recipe called for milk)


Melt butter in the bottom of a 9-inch pan, while the oven preheats. Swirl butter in the bottom of the pan to coat evenly, sprinkle with the brown sugar, evenly top with the drained pineapple.

Beat the coconut oil and sugar, add egg, beat until fluffy. Add the flour, salt, soda and baking powder to the bowl along with 1/2 or more of the juice. Beat until smooth.  Add remaining juice, beat for an additional minute. Carefully pour over the pineapple.

Bake 35-45 minutes or until done in your oven. Let rest 10 minutes, loosen the edges of the cake, turn out onto a serving plate. Let cool completely.


Serve with a swirl of whipped cream and a cherry if desired!

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!
