Sausage, Veggies and Tortellini Soup TSLC - CopyThis recipe for Sausage, Veggies and Tortellini Soup is great using fresh okra and corn from the garden or you can use canned or frozen.  We eat soup all year and love it for lunch everyday with a sandwich.

1/2 pound Kielbasa, sliced

1 (15.5 ounce) can Great Northern beans, rinsed and drained

2 cups fresh or frozen corn or 1 (15.5 ounce) can whole kernel sweet corn, drained

Combine all ingredients except tortellini in a medium sized pot and bring to boil on top of the stove.  Reduce heat to simmer and cook covered for 25 to 30 minutes.  Add cheese tortellini in the last 10 minutes and continue cooking until pasta is tender.  Makes about 8 servings. Keeps well in the refrigerator for several days and could be frozen.  Enjoy!

PEACH CRUMB CAKE

Peach Crumb Cake - TSLC - CopyThis Peach Crumb Cake is wonderful with your morning coffee or serve to friends and family as a great dessert.  We love anything with peaches and this one will be a winner.

Cake:

1 (16 ounce) package frozen sliced peaches (could use fresh peach slices or canned slices, drained)

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup white granulated sugar

1 stick butter or 8 tablespoons or 1/2 cup, melted

1 cup sour cream

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

2 eggs

Whisk together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt and sugar in a large mixing bowl.  Pour in melted butter and sour cream.  Mix well with spoon.  Add vanilla extract and eggs. Mix to combine.  If using frozen peaches let thaw enough that you can cut into bite-sized pieces. (Can thaw a little in microwave) If using fresh or canned, be sure to drain canned peaches, then cut into pieces. Fold peaches into cake mixture.  Spray a 9 x 9 inch baking dish with cooking spray and add cake mixture.   Make the streusel recipe below and crumble on the top of cake mixture.

Streusel Topping:

1/3 cup white granulated sugar

1/3 cup brown sugar

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 stick butter or 8 tablespoons or 1/2 cup, melted

Whisk together all ingredients but butter.  Melt butter and stir into flour mixture with spoon. Crumble on top of cake mixture. (I just do this with my hands) Bake cake in preheated 350 degree oven for 55 to 60 minutes until center tests done. Can sprinkle on powdered sugar before serving.  If you want to garnish with peach slices be sure to keep a few aside to go on the top. Makes 1 cake.  Enjoy!
