Nicaraguan Rice and Beans with Cabbage Salad, THM-E

Our daughter spent two years living in the loving country of Nicaragua at a Christian Mission as a relief worker. We, as a family, traveled to see her and acquired a taste for native food. Black Beans and Rice soon became a favorite in our house. In Nicaragua a thin sour cream is served with this dish. I will at times use fat-free Greek Yogurt but most often just hot sauce and a few tomatoes. This meal may look complicated but with the use of a Crockpot and Insta-pot it is a very simple economical meal to put together. I always make a double recipe so I can have leftovers for the next day.

Making a Sourdough Starter!

Sourdough baking is an incredible baking adventure and it can begin in your kitchen today. It is an art and it is so rewarding to pull a crusty artisan or a soft sandwich loaf out of the oven. In the post we will begin in the very beginning of sourdough, starting with the first tablespoon of flour and water to make a starter. We will take you through the day by day steps to have a successful baking experience.

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.

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.

Hot Lemon Custard Drink THM – Deep S

As 2018 draws to a close, I was looking back over my blog to see what has been the most popular recipe. Honey Oat Sourdough Bread tops the list and this recipe follows close on it heels. Do you love lemon as much as I do? This taste just like the filling for lemon meringue pie but in a drinkable custard. Try it, you may be surprised how good it really is.

Hot Lemon Custard Drink
1 cup almond milk
1 egg OR 3 egg yolks
3 tablespoons lemon juice

1 teaspoon Gentle Sweet
1 tablespoon MCT oil
1/4 teaspoon glucomannan

Bullet Proof Coffee THM S

Coffee!! what is not to like about it? We are early risers and I often have a cup of coffee and wait until 8:00 or later for my breakfast. This coffee is a Deep S and I enjoy it as a meal replacement at times.

Bullet Proof Coffee-THM-Deep S

  • 14 ounces hot coffee
  • 1 tablespoon MCT Oil
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tiny spoon THM Stevia
  • 1 1/2 – 2 teaspoons Vanilla
  • 4 drops Carmel Loran Oil

Combine all ingredients in a large wide mouth quart jar. Blend all together very well with a hand blender; quickly as you can so you don’t see that egg floating on the bottom of your jar.  Oh, and it will taste a lot better if you have Kathmandu Coffee from the lovely country of Nepal (it was hand delivered to my house by my nephew who is home for a few months) because you know you are supporting the children’s homes under Christian Aid Ministries. 1 serving

*if you are blending this in a traditional blender be sure to vent properly. Blending hot liquids can result in burns if not done properly. That is the reason I love my hand blender for hot drinks.

*if you are concerned about using a raw egg, wash the egg well before cracking it open. That eliminates any bacteria on the shell.
