Coffee Roasted Beef and Pork THM-S

With Oven, Insta-pot, and Crock Pot Instructions.

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.

Sourdough Perogies THM-XO

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.

All Purpose Seasoned Salt — THM FP

Most All Purpose Seasoned Salts you buy in stores have undesired items in them. I love to buy large containers of spices and mix my own blends and salts. 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.

Banana Muffins THM-E

Early busy mornings call for a quick breakfast and these muffins fill that spot. Spread with just a bit of butter they are delicious with a cup of coffee. These muffins also freeze well if you can get them in the freezer before they are eaten all. I love the new THM Extracts and they are so good in these muffins. The chocolate chips sprinkled on top add something extra and the children love it.

Wilted Spinach Salad THM-FP

Spring—what a wonderful time of the year when everything turns green and begins to grow. One of the first seeds to be planted in my garden are spinach and radish seeds. Spinach is very easy to grow, loves cool weather, and is so tasty in garden salads. This easy to make salad uses just a few ingredients but is big in flavor. I can’t wait to plant my garden but since our new place is further north I haven’t planted yet. Maybe this weekend I can get my early crop out.
