Blueberry Rhubarb Cake

 Sweet blueberries and tart rhubarb at the star in this easy peasy cake.





We've been really been enjoying summer vacation. Sleeping in, lazy days in the sun, time at the cottage, staying up late has all been on our agenda since online learning was done.

My Mom and Dad brought me part of their rhubarb plant, years ago. It survived our move in April and I was able to make a few desserts this summer. I could whip up a Rhubarb Cake. This is a recipe my mom has made in the past, however I changed the recipe up a little. Since we had a few egg whites in the fridge, I used them in my cake, rather than a whole egg. I also didn't use as much topping as the original recipe calls for. The result is a moist, somewhat dense cake, studded with tart rhubarb and sweet blueberries.







Blueberry Rhubarb Cake

2 C chopped rhubarb
1 C blueberries (fresh or frozen)
1/2 C shortening
1 1/2 C sugar
2 egg whites (or 1 whole large egg)
2 C flour
1 C buttermilk or sour milk

Topping
3 Tbs sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 C finely chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, cream together the sugar and shortening. Add egg whites and mix well. Add flour, alternating with milk and mix until just combined. Fold in rhubarb and blueberries, and pour into a lightly greased 9x11- inch baking dish. In a small bowl combine the sugar, cinnamon and walnuts. Sprinkle over cake batter and bake for 45 minutes.

No Yeast Old Fashion Cinnamon Rolls

 These delicious cinnamon sticky rolls have been in my family for over 40 yrs. No yeast is required, so you can whip up a batch of these in no time. Still tender, sticky sweet and delicious! Ever since I can remember Mom would make these as a special treat. It wasn't too often, but every once in a while, we'd come home to these no yeast cinnamon rolls, as an after school snack. Growing up, this is what I thought cinnamon rolls were. I wasn't aware that there was a yeast version of cinnamon rolls. As much as I LOVE the yeast version, this no yeast version seems to make an appearance more frequently here at home.  Since there is no yeast in the dough, it does not need to rise for 30 minutes before being rolled out and baked. When I worked in the retirement home the residents were always excited when I made these cinnamon rolls. They said it reminded them of their childhood. It was amazing seeing how happy a simple recipe could make them. I don't make these very often and

Black Forest Roll Cake

Light and fluffy cherry and whipped cream filling is rolled in an airy sponge cake. 13 years ago, I made a dinner that I was totally proud of. Not only did it taste wonderful, it looks fantastic too. I was so proud of myself that I took a photo, which I wanted to share with my friends and family. Only I didn't know how I could share it with everyone, at the same time. Then a thought came to me- a blog!!!  I've always been a foodie. While growing up, I'd often watch talk shows, just to see the cooking segments. I'd sit with a pen and paper, quickly jotting down ingredients and directions, to hopefully recreate recipes at home. I still remember a beet salad I begged my mom to let me make, asking her to buy raspberry wine vinegar for the dressing. It turned out to be something neither of us enjoyed, and up until a few years ago, Mom still had the vinegar in her cupboard.  I first started my first blog, Hun... What's  for Dinner?, as a way to share recipes with my famil

I originally saw versions of this recipe on Pinterest and it had my tummy rumbling so hard, that I knew I had to make it. I had chicken in the freezer, so decided to make this chicken on a day where I would be at school all day. Nothing like walking into the most amazing smell, when you get home from a busy day of work!  I love that this recipe is so simple, yet it is out of this world delicious. Sweet and savory combine, to coat this tender chicken. It literally fell apart as I tried to remove it from the crock pot. Once tossed with the thickened glaze, I served it with cooked rice/fried rice and some fresh snap peas. It was an amazingly fantastic crock pot meal, that I will be making again and again.  Crockpot Brown
