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.

Espresso Mousse THM-FP

I garnished this Mousse with a scoop of fat-free Greek Yogurt flavored with THM vanilla extract and Gentle Sweet, Espresso Powder, and 12 Lily’s chocolate chips to keep it within the guidelines for a FP.

No-knead Jalapeno Cheddar Sourdough Bread THM-E

After the busyness of the past few weeks, I got to spend all day in my kitchen doing something I love, Sourdough!! By now most of you all should know that I love to create recipes using sourdough starter. There is something so rewarding about taking flour, water, and salt and creating a warm crusty loaf of bread. Best of all, most of my family enjoys eating the recipes I create. Tonight this bread was served with Southwestern Chicken and Bean Soup for the men and I also made Beefy Cabbage Soup for myself.

The recipe as a THM S and has the FP option listed, also. This is a winner with our family.
