It would be embarrassing to tell you how quickly this platter was emptied at my house. My family loves it!!

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bundt Cake, THM S

Cool nights and blooming goldenrod tell us that fall is rapidly approaching. The pumpkin vines are hanging full and ready for harvest. I love pumpkin cake and this one is a winner with Bake Believe Dark Chocolate Chips. This cake didn’t last long at our house and I a sure it won’t at your either. You may wonder why I have chosen to add peanut flour to this cake! I find that peanut flour helps the texture of low-carb cakes making the more like the sugar/flour laden ones.

Pennsylvania is often referred to the mushroom capital of the world. 63% of the United States white mushroom crop is grown in this state.

I will often triple this recipe, stuff, and bake the mushrooms. They then can be frozen in a single layer on a cookie sheet. When totally frozen; vacuum pack in bags and return to the freezer.

This has me spoiled with wonderful bacon for my cooking.

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.

Strawberries are the first berries to ripen followed by raspberries a few week later. This strawberry pie is a makeover of an old family favorite. It pie never last long at our house and I am sure it won’t at yours either. My regular recipe asked for strawberry jello but I have substituted Strawberry Kool Aid and unflavored gelatin to be able to make it sugar-free.
