Herb Roasted Vegetables THM S, Keto

Have you ever walked through your garden and came in with a basket of veggies and herbs? I love to make Herb Roasted Veggies to compliment a meal. Since we needed to plant later in the northern part of Pennsylvania where we now live my garden isn’t producing yet other than herbs. I served these Roasted Veggies with Blue-cheese Stuffed Hamburgers for our evening meal. My stoneware large bar pan is my favorite for roasting. I did add 2 sweet potatoes to the veggies for my husband and children. This meal is easy to make for a family and picky eaters can pick and choose which veggies they want to eat. You can use any mixture of veggies but to keep it in an S do not use any veggies with carbs such as sweet potatoes, carrots, regular potatoes.

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.

Sourdough Doughnuts THM-XO

Fasnacht Day is tomorrow and widely celebrated in Lancaster County. The tradition of eating fastnachts on Fat Tuesday started with the Pennsylvania Dutch as they were looking for recipes to use up lard before Lent. Fastnacht is a German word which means “night before the fast. I have always saved the lard we make when we butcher hogs in the winter to fry doughnuts. These sourdough doughnuts are very tasty and our family loves them.

Candied Apple Pie THM-XO

A warm double-crust apple pie – bring back memories of my grandma and helping her make pie crust. This old timed favorite has been revised to a to a healthier option. I love to warm a slice and add a tablespoon of cream for a delicious THM crossover treat.

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

  • 1 tablespoon oat fiber
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 3-4 tablespoons cold water

Apple Filling:

Candied topping:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a mixer bowl combine baking blend, flour, lard, butter, salt, baking powder, and oat fiber. Mix until crumbly. Beat egg and water together. Add to mixer bowl and mix lightly. Divide into two dough balls, one slightly bigger than the other. Roll the large ball between two piece of plastic wrap. Remove top piece of plastic wrap and carefully flip dough into a deep dish pie plate. Combine apple filling ingredients together in a bowl. Mix well. Mound apple filling into pie crust. Roll remaining dough ball between to pieces of plastic wrap. remove top piece of wrap and flip dough over top of the apples. Carefully press crust edges together and trim. Flute.  Place pie in oven. Bake for 40-45 minutes. Cover the pie with foil after it has baked for 20 minutes. Five minutes before the pie is finished, melt butter in a sauce pan.  Add cream, Brown Sugar Substitute, and extracts. Boil for 3 minutes. Add nuts. Remove pie from the oven and spoon caramel sauce over the top crust, spreading to cover the entire crust. Cool. Serve 8-10.

**The pie crust has a tendency to be fragile. I make sure the bottom crust has all the seams sealed. If the top crust has a few holes as pictured below that is okay.

Pumpkin Sourdough Cinnamon Rolls THM-crossover

Cool, crisp mornings warn us that fall is rapidly approaching. Pumpkins, gourds, hay bales, and  corn-shocks can be found at little roadside stands on our quiet country back roads. Neck Pumpkins are a favorite of mine for baking with their orange meaty flesh. Pureed pumpkin add a delightful twist to these cinnamon rolls and Brown Butter Frosting takes it over the top.

Pumpkin Sourdough Cinnamon Rolls  THM – XO

Cinnamon roll dough:

Cinnamon mixture:

  • 1 ½ teaspoons cinnamon
  • 2/3 cup erythritol
  • 5 tiny spoons THM Stevia
  • 2 drops Maple flavoring
  • ½ teaspoon Blackstrap Molasses
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter

Brown Butter Frosting:

In mixer bowl combine almond milk, starter, pumpkin, egg, and honey.  Add 2 cups flour and dough enhancer. Mix for 2 minutes. Add remaining flour in 1/4 cups increments until dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl. Mix well. Let rest 20 minutes. Add salt and knead 8-9 minutes. Place in a greased bowl and cover with a lid. Let rise 4 hours and then refrigerate 3 days***. Sprinkle baking soda over dough and knead in. Dust a surface with sprouted wheat flour and press cold dough into a large rectangle with floured hands. Brush with butter and sprinkle very generously with cinnamon mixture. Roll into a long jelly roll. Cut the cinnamon rolls using a piece of heavy sewing thread—slide the thread under the roll and pull the ends across each other. Place on baking pans, cover, and allow to rise until doubled. Bake at 350 degrees F. for 16-18 minutes or until very lightly browned. Cool completely. In mixer bowl combine butter and cream cheese. Whip until smooth and well combined. Add sweetener, Stevia drops, and cream. Whip until fluffy, about 2 minutes. Frost cinnamon rolls.  20 rolls.

*Do not allow the cinnamon dough to come to room temperature when rolling them out. I have melted butter and the cinnamon mixture ready before I remove the dough from the fridge. Cold dough works the best as you need very little flour when rolling them out.

**Slightly more flour may be needed if your starter is thinner.

***This recipe is styled after Gwen’s Nest Bread which use 1/3 white flour and allows it to ferment for 3 days in the fridge.

There are so many peaches varieties to pick from but my favorites for fresh eating are Red Haven, Sun High, and Contender. This post does contain affiliate links with the products I love to use. If you purchase items through these links, I receive a small commission but your price doesn’t change.
