Insta-Pot Taco Soup THM-E

Quick and easy meals — we all love them, don’t we? Mondays are hectic days for me as a mother of eight. My laundry room usually has this enormous mound of dirty wash waiting for my attention. Our family has come to expect simple meals and this is one of my favorites. Everything can be done in the Insta-Pot and all I need to do is add cornbread or a salad to finish out the meal. Any leftovers are saved for lunches the next day.

No-knead Whole Wheat Sourdough Bread THM-E

Sourdough bread is so fascinating to me. I love to experiment with different ways, methods, and with my large family, they eat it right up. This method is very easy and the gluten is developed by the stretch and folds. It is a simple recipe that only uses 5 ingredients and is just stirred together using a large spatula or spoon. I found my clay baker at a thrift store for just a few dollars and I love it.

No-Knead Whole Wheat Sourdough Bread THM-E

In a large mixing bowl, stir all ingredients together until combined. You will have a rough, sticky dough. Cover and allow it to rise for 1 hour. Remove lid and gently pick up one side of the dough, fold it in half. Repeat with all four sides of dough. Cover and allow to rise for another hour. Repeat 2 more times for a total of 4 folding times. Cover and place in the refrigerator for 12 hours. Remove dough from the refrigerator. Fold dough in 3rds, pinching the dough together to seal the edges. Turn dough and fold in 3rds, pinching to seal edges. Line the bottom of the clay baker with parchment paper or foil. Place loaf seam side down in a clay baker. Cover. Allow loaf to warm to room temperature for 2 hours. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Remove the lid from the baker and fill with water. Allow the water to soak the lid for 10 minutes. Slash the loaf with a sharp knife. Empty the water from the lid and place it on the clay baker. Place the covered baker into the hot oven. Set the timer for 35 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 400 degrees. Remove the lid and bake for an additional 12-15 minutes. Remove clay baker from oven. Remove loaf to a wire rack to cool. 12-14 slices.

2 slices of bread are considered an E category and 1 slice an S-helper under THM guidelines.

Stretch and folds result is a silky smooth dough and develops the gluten.
Stretched and folded for the last time and ready to place into the fridge.
The dough has doubled in size while it was in the fridge for 12 hours.

After a 2 hours proof on the countertop at room temperature, the dough is slashed and ready to be placed in the hot oven. I love my serrated Princess House Bread knife to slash bread. It works great. 
This is what I found when I opened the lid after the bread at baked for 35 minutes at 450 degrees F.

Cinnamon Oatmeal-THM-E

Oatmeal is a comfort food to me. As a young girl, my mother often made cooked cereal for breakfast because it was a very economical dish. My children prefer Baked Oatmeal but I still enjoy a simple bowl of oatmeal. It is so handy to keep a couple jars of these dry ingredients in my pantry and in a few minutes my breakfast is ready. This is just as easy as those bought packets of oatmeal but so much healthier. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do.

Cinnamon Oatmeal THM-E

Dry ingredients:

Wet Ingredients:

  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup almond milk

Place dry ingredients in a small jar. I fill multiple jars and store in my pantry. They will keep indefinitely. To make oatmeal; pour dry ingredients into a microwave bowl. Add liquid ingredients and stir well. Microwave on high 3 minutes. Serves 1.

*I coarsely chop the raw oats in my Ninja Blender cup. I prefer the texture better that way than with whole oats.

*I add 2 tablespoons Half and Half and 1/2 cup cooked apple pieces to my serving. The Half and Half is under the 6 grams of fat allowed for an E meal.

Savory Venison Roast THM-FP

Our family enjoys this part of the year that includes deer hunting. Many memories have been made around the archery targets in our back yard. And,  yes, I even enjoy hunting using a crossbow. Venison roast is a favorite at our house and is the first item to be  made when we harvest a deer. Our family tradition is to process all our venison and smoke bologna, jerky, and snack sticks. This recipe is also very good with a beef roast if you do not have access to venison.

Pumpkin Pie Bars THM-S

This past weekend as I watched snowflakes swirling past the window, all I could think of was — I’m not ready for fall to be over with the colorful leaves, apples, and pumpkins. But just as God has promised there will always be the cycle of seasons, after fall comes winter. My teacher daughter was given 4 huge neck pumpkins by one of her student. These pumpkins make the best pies and if you are in a crunch for time this recipe tastes just like a pumpkin pie. I love that it is so easy to make without the hassle of rolling out pie crusts.

For crust: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine all ingredients in a food processor. Pulse until mixture is crumbly. Press crumbs in layer in a 9 x 13 glass baking pan. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until light brown. Remove from oven. Set aside. Combine filling ingredient in a blender jar. Blend for 2 minutes.  Pour carefully over crust. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until set.  Remove from oven and cool completely.  18 servings

**NOTE: THM Oat Fiber is the best on the market. It does not have the gritty texture and funny after taste of some kinds.
