Taco Pickles
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 in a sandw...

Fish can be a bit tame on that dinner plate. You could also tuck a spoonful in a sandwich or anywhere spicy flavor is desired ...

Once upon a Kitchen Aid time.....
Can you tell I have been having mixer troubles in the kitchen? As some of you know, my greatest cooking desires are centered around bread. I have been making bread for over 40 years. Some of it good, some of it great, and because this is real life, some of ...

This bee hive is something to think about and put into practice. 
 
I'm intrigued by this design..."The Slovenian Beehive Arrives in the US" - Keeping Backyard Bees @kbbees http://ow.ly/LL73V
Lately there has been plenty of buzz over new types of beehives becoming available in the United States. It is no secret that many beekeepers are looking for better ways to keep bees, better ways to ensure the hive’s long-term survival, and hives with improvements to their ergonomic design. I was excited to learn that …

When life gives you cabbages, make sauerkraut!
Honestly I have had a devil of a time fermenting food. I now believe I have over done just about everything, after all fermenting has been a preservation process for hundreds of years. I grew up with fermented foods, our Dad was the one to ferment foods in ...

Garden Tuesday, the one about hostas, dandelions and roofing
We love hostas. Hostas are something I have always wanted to plant. Especially as a more mature plant in a one gallon container, because I tried from root or seed or the way they come in the little plastic bags, and it did not grow...... This has happened b...

This has happened before and for many plants it is (much!) ...

Garden Tuesday, the one about spring time in the garden
Our weather has been as unpredictable as our schedules and task lists, aka a nice way to make an excuse for such a long time between posts..... I really like our row markers. They go right along with the old wood that faces the raised beds. Such a nice plac...

Garden Tuesday, the one about "if gardening required a license".....
What if gardening required a license? Like, let's say fishing. Or driving a car, or getting married. Now before anyone gets too riled up about the cost of a license to garden, let me explain. It seems in our country, you know the land of plenty, that anythi...

Story
Tagline
Hard worker, good friend to many and very happy married to my husband and best friend.
Introduction
Previously I was a SAHM, who returned to the work force 25+ years ago. My husband and I are returning to the homemade ways we grew up with in the comfort of our home and garden, as we plan for retirement. We prefer food from scratch and everything else in our lives to be just as honest. We work side by side, the recipes, ideas and photos shared are from us both and that is why it's call Our Sunday Cafe. Thanks for visiting! 
Bragging rights
I am still willing to try, day after day after day.
