Crisp, cool, windy days with autumn leaves swirling to the ground call for hot coffee, teas, and lattes. On days like this I find myself reaching for my coffee cup way to often.

Refrigerator Pickled Jalapenos THM-FP

Cleaning out the remains of my garden this fall, I had a small bucket of Jalapenos to use up. Maybe I was being lazy but I didn’t want to take the time to can them. This recipe saved my day. It can be made is a very short time and best of all, they are so delicious.  The Jalapenos are not super hot like you would imagine but have a mild sweet flavor.   I may even  have to buy some Jalapenos this winter to replenish our supply!


Refrigerator Pickled Jalapenos 

  • 3/4 cup hot water
  • 3/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons mineral salt
  • 2 tablespoons THM Gentle Sweet
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 3/4 teaspoon oregano
  • sliced jalapenos to fill a quart jar

Wash and slice Jalapenos, discarding the tops and stems. Pack into a quart jar. Fill the quart jar with water and shake to loosen some seeds. Pour the out the water and discard. Combine water, vinegar, salt, and Gentle Sweet together. Stir until salt and Gentle Sweet are dissolved. Place garlic cloves and oregano on top of the jalapenos. Pour brine in to fill the jar. Add lid and ring. Store in the fridge for 2-3 weeks before using if you can wait that long.

These are so tasty on wraps, burgers, omelets, and just about anything. They have a sweet mild flavor and we just love them.

Maple Walnut Angel Food Cake THM-S

As a young girl I spent fall afternoons picking up English Walnuts with my grandma. They were a favorite  and much preferred by our family over the Black Walnuts which have a stronger taste. This Angel Food Cake combines the flavors of maple with walnuts for a very appealing taste in a light fluffy cake.  The frosting can be eliminated for a FP as there are very minimal amount of walnuts in a slice.

Maple Walnut Angel Food Cake

Cake:

Icing:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a mixing bowl, whip egg whites and frothy. Add cream of tartar and powdered erythitol. Whip until soft peaks form. Add Maple and Vanilla Flavoring. Whip until egg whites mound in soft mounds that hold their shape. Stir together Stevia, Collagen, and oat fiber. Carefully mix the dry ingredients into the egg whites until combined. Fold in walnuts. Spoon batter into an angel food cake pan. Swirl a knife through the batter to eliminate air pockets. Place on the lowest oven rack. Bake for 40 minutes***. Remove from oven and turn cake upside down to cool for 4 hours. Carefully remove cake from pan be running a sharp knife along the edges of the cake pan. Icing: Melt butter and allow it to simmer until browned. Cool slightly. In a mixer bowl combine butter, erythitol, cream cheese, cream, Maple Flavoring, and Stevia. whip until smooth and creamy. Spread over cooled cake and garnish with chopped walnuts.  Serves 12.

*I use a coffee grinder to powder the erythitol.

**There is a big difference in oat fiber, I will only use THM oat fiber. It is the best. I fluff it up with a spoon, than spoon it into my measuring cup. Do not scoop it as that will pack it into the cup.

**You can over-beat egg white which will cause the cake to collapse after it has been baked. You want soft-medium-stiff whites. They should be soft mounds. This recipe fills my 6 quart mixer bowl almost full when they are fully whipped.

***Oven temps do vary.

 

If you prefer you can use either English or Black walnuts or even Pecans.

East meets West Sushi Salad THM-S

Have you ever wanted all the flavors of sushi without the added carbs from the white rice? A recipe on the back of a bag of sushi rice inspired this salad. I love it! Don’t forget the pickled ginger as that gives it a wonderful flavor. You can adjust the Wasabi to your preference of taste as it is very potent. This has satisfied my taste for sushi and I hope you will find it as refreshing as I did.

  • 4 cups chopped lettuce
  • 1 avocado, peeled and sliced
  • 6 cherry tomatoes
  • 1/3 cup shredded carrots
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 2 slices red onion
  • 10 medium shrimp, cooked, peeled and de-veined
  • Nori wrap pieces, optional
  • a few slices pickled ginger

Wasabi Dressing

Divide lettuce between to salad plates. Arrange a half of the following ingredients on top of the lettuce on each plate-avocado, tomato, carrots, celery, onion, and shrimp. Combine the dressing. Drizzle the desired amount on each salad. Serves 2.

Amish Macaroni Potato Salad THM-S

Amish Macaroni Potato salad has always been a favorite with our family and for carry-in dish dinners. I have often wished for a healthier version (without potatoes) and after numerous attempts  I have come up with this recipe using spaghetti squash. Our family loves it and the serving dish comes back to the kitchen completely empty.  Most people are surprised what is used to replace the potatoes but comment on how tasty it really is.

Amish Macaroni Potato Salad  THM-S

  • 1 box  Dreamfield Elbows 
  • 4 cups cooked spaghetti squash
  • 2 cups finely diced celery
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1/2 cup finely diced onion
  • 6 hard boiled eggs, chopped

Dressing:

Cook pasta following instructions on box. Drain and rinse well. Chop spaghetti squash so the strands are no longer than 3/4 inch. Toss together elbows, spaghetti squash, celery, carrots, onion, and eggs. Combine mayo, salt, apple cider vinegar, mustard, Gentle Sweet, and garlic powder together. Pour over salad and stir lightly. Refrigerate for 2-4 hours for flavors to combine. 12-14 servings.

**I often cook the spaghetti squash in the microwave, each half for 8 minutes.

Kefir Olive Garden Salad Dressing THM-S

Olive Garden Salad is an all time favorite in our family and what is not to like about crunchy sprouted bread croutons,  peperoncino peppers, grape tomatoes, red onions, and this dressing tossed with romaine and iceberg lettuce . This recipe uses double fermented Kefir as a base which gives you healthy probiotics. I used low-fat kefir which does lighten the calorie load just a bit but still give a flavorful dressing. Romano Cheese gives the best flavor but Parmesan cheese can be used as a substitute.

Kefir Olive Garden Salad Dressing THM-S

Combine all ingredient in blender. Blend until smooth. Refrigerate 4 hours for flavors to combine. Dressing will thicken as it sets. A serving is 2 tablespoons. 18 servings

Crust-less Pumpkin Cheesecake Pie THM-S

Browsing through a magazine this past week I saw a recipe for Pumpkin Cheesecake Pie but off course it was loaded with sugar. I decide to try a sugar-free one and for the lack of time made it without a crust. It was very well received by the taste-testers in my family and now I have a new favorite for the fall holidays. In this recipe I use my home canned pumpkin but bought canned pumpkin works just as well or you can substitute well-drained cooked butternut squash.

Crust-less Pumpkin Cheesecake Pie  THM-S

Cheesecake layer:

Pumpkin Layer:

  • 1 1/4 cups pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1/3 cup Greek Yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons THM Gentle Sweet or Brown Sugar Sweetener*
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Walnut Streusel Topping:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Grease the bottom of a 9 inch glass pie pan. Set aside. In a mixer bowl whip together cream cheese and sweetener until smooth. Add egg, vanilla, and salt. Mix until just combined. Spread evenly on the bottom of the pie pan. Set aside. Combine pumpkin layer ingredients in blender jar or in a bowl. Blend until smooth. Carefully pour over cream cheese mixture. For streusel topping combine baking blend, Brown Sugar Sweetener, and walnuts together. Mix in cold butter until just combined. Sprinkle over the pumpkin layer. Cover the pie plate with foil–folding up the center so it doesn’t touch the filling. Place in over for 25 minutes. Remove foil and bake 15-20 minutes longer or until center of the pie is just so set. Remove from oven and cool for 8 hours or until completely set. Serves 8

* I prefer using Brown Sugar Sweetener for the added flavor it gives.

Southwestern Chicken and Bean Soup THM-E

Stockpots full of hearty soups are so delicious and filling on busy fall/winter days. This Southwestern Chicken and Bean soup has become a family favorite. I often serve it with cornbread or Multi-grain Sourdough bread. Over the winter months I pressure can black beans to use in this soup or for rice and beans. Sweet corn give just the right amount of sweetness that go so well with the spiciness. You can adjust the seasoning to suit your taste and even add a diced Jalapeno or two if you like more heat. I will freeze individual portions of this soup for school lunches or for a quick meal when I am home by myself.

Southwestern Chicken and Bean Soup THM-E

Combine all ingredients in 8-quart kettle. Simmer for 30 minutes. Serves 12-14.

*This is a very quick tasty dish. For growing children serve with full fat sour-cream, baked corn chips and shredded cheddar cheese for a THM-Crossover.

*You can omit the chicken for a meatless more economical dish.
