This is a great combination of flavors…tart rhubarb and sweet pineapple. They go well together and if you have a lot of rhubarb left in the freezer from the early summer harvest this is a good way to use it! A fairly simple pie to make and unusual enough to be an interesting offering for your guests. Great on its own or with fresh whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
Here is a simple two-loaf recipe for a good tasting whole wheat bread. It includes a little molasses, which deepens the flavor. This bread is great on sandwiches and is excellent toasted. While the recipe isn’t complicated, the process takes about 3 hours from start to finish as the dough needs to rise twice.
This is a good, moist, old-fashioned pound cake flavored with a little lemon and coconut. You can also use the base recipe and then flavor it anyway you like. Great on it’s own, or it can be glazed or served with fruit and/or ice cream.
Making cream of mushroom soup from scratch is not difficult and delivers a flavor so much more robust and satisfying than anything you could find in a can. Serve this as a first course, or just on its own along with some good bread and butter!
These soft and “cakey” cookies are and old-fashioned classic treat. They are not overly sweet, so they go great with coffee or tea, and have a wonderful molasses and ginger flavor. This recipe makes a big batch. They freeze well if you have leftovers!
Here’s a version of this classic American sandwich that includes a few of the traditional ingredients and a few of our own additions. Great for parties, this is a large recipe that can be easily cut in half. Sloppy Joes are also good to make in advance, keep warm on the stove or in a slow cooker and let everyone help themselves!
This hearty, classic soup has a deep beefy flavor and features chucks of tender beef with carrots, celery, onions, mushrooms and barley. Can be enjoyed as a total meal when you add some good bread on the side.
There are so many ways to brew and enjoy coffee, but I always say that the very best coffee is the coffee made the way you like it. Join us for a coffee klatch where we look at ways to make coffee using three different methods: percolated, drip (or “pour-over”) and by vacuum for espresso.
