Death Row Chicken, recipe rewind because some things are too good to miss!
We are having a lovely spring day here. There is cherry blossom "snow" falling in the back yard. There is no need for a fire in the wood stove. The sun was bright and warming all day. But my dear husband is ill. For some reason (not his choosing I am sure) ...

Bread, the making and the eating......a kitchen tale
So what is it about bread? I ask because I love bread. The eating of bread. The making of bread. Why even just the thought of bread. Toast. Sandwiches. Bread and butter. Dinner rolls. English muffins, yeast breads, quick breads, I think you get the idea. Fr...
Toast. Sandwiches. Bread and butter. Dinner rolls. English muffins, yeast breads, quick breads, I think you get the idea. From time to time during the last 40 years I have made our daily bread. And then life takes a sharp turn and all of a sudden with so much to do, bread making gets set off to ...

While we are slated to receive some really nice days soon, they have not arrived as of yet. But gardening preparation will only wait for so long.....so the work does go on. Sometimes the rain is helpful, as it washes the cherry blossoms out of the bird bath. Or waters the berries and rhubarb.

Southern Sweet Potato Pie, Ice Creme
You know how sometimes a sweet, creamy scoop of ice cream is just what you need want? Me too. And you know how sometimes the simplest of foods just don't agree with you anymore? Me too. While I have not talked about it at great length (because this is a coo...

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.
