Sweet creamy dip with fresh fruit is a favorite at picnics and potlucks and bananas cut to look like dolphins make this extra special for children. This creamy dip is a FP and can be served with any type of fruit. Bananas, apples, and grapes are THM E and berries are a Fuel Pull.Continue reading
Strawberries herald the spring/summer season as roadsides stands and markets display boxes of crimson fruit. They are the easiest fruit to grow in backyard gardens and produce very well. This dessert is refreshing on warm, summer days and best of all it is a Fuel Pull. Using frozen berries thickens the dessert almost immediately after blending in soften gelatin. I am enjoying more FP desserts to balance out those meals when I just need a bit more protein and something sweet.Continue reading
What do you do when you really want egg salad on a toasted piece of sourdough bread but you don’t want a crossover? Low-fat cottage cheese and mustard blended together, mixed with diced hard boiled egg whites added just the right touch to make a Fuel Pull Egg Salad that not only tasted wonderful but tricked the eyes in looking like it was made with whole eggs. It was delicious served on toasted Sourdough or sprouted bread with slices of tomatoes, onions, and lettuces leaves. Serving it on sourdough/sprouted bread made my lunch a E from the carbs in the bread but it also can be served on lettuce leaves for a FP. I, also love to use Refrigerated Pickled Jalapenos on my sandwich.Continue reading

Roasted Beef is a comfort food to many people. My late mother-in-law would roast beef and pork together and it was so delicious. We, usually don’t think of coffee as an ingredient in roast beef but the acids in the coffee help to tenderize the meat and make a rich dark broth. I use my own All Purpose Seasoned Salt blend to season the meat but you can use other on-plans Season salts as well. I do think the addition of Smoked Paprika to the All Purpose Seasoned Salt gives a wonderful flavor to the roasted meat.Continue reading

One of the many traditional German side dishes popular in Lancaster County is homemade egg noodles. I learned the art of noodle making from my Old Order Mennonite grandmother and aunts as they made dishpans of noodles for their large families. The Atlas Noodle Maker I have was a gift from my late mother-in-law. These Perogies are made with sourdough pasta that has been fermented for more than 24 hours. With this recipe you can also make noodles and even Ravioli. Perogies and ravioli are a bit time consuming but we do enjoy them for special occasions.Continue reading

There are many kinds of spices — Mesquite Powder, smoked peppers, and salts to help make your own unique seasoning blends. You can adjust the amount of Cayenne Pepper for the desired heat your prefer. I have already use Smoked Chipotle Pepper or if you really like heat try Smoked Ghost Pepper.Continue reading
