Plum Jam THM-E

This is a great time of the year when orchard begin to give of their bounty. Plums are a delicious tart/sweet fruit and we enjoy them picked ripe from the trees. This Plum Jam features four kitchen staple ingredients and has a wonderful flavor. I use unflavored gelatin in almost all of the jams I make and they store very well. The jam will need to be refrigerated to thicken. This evening I found my teenage son eating the jam from the jar by the spoonfuls! That’s just how good it is.

The Perfect Cheesecake THM-S, Keto Friendly

Cheesecakes have always been a favorite dessert of mine to make for special occasion. They are one of the easiest dessert to make sugar-free and low-carb and they taste just like the sugar-laden ones do. When I take a cheesecake to carry-in dinners I always come home with an empty plate. Separating the eggs and whipping the egg whites stiff give a wonderful light texture. You can also bake this cheesecake in a 9 x 13 pan if your prefer is you do not have a springform pan. Sometimes I omit the sour cream topping and just serve it with whipped cream and fresh berries.

Cherry Pinwheel Finger Jello THM-FP

Finger Jello is always a highlight for children at picnics and potlucks. These Pinwheels are easy to make and feature unflavored gelatin which is good for your health. Each flavor is whisked together using my favorite stainless steel whisk before it is poured in layers in a 10 x 15 baking pan. Cherry and Strawberry Kool Aid are 2 kinds that I have found that do not have maltodextrin listed as an ingredient so I use them as a handy Drive-thru-Sue ingredient. If you need a snack to keep in your fridge this summer for your children, I’m sure they would love these pinwheels. Sour cream maybe substituted for the Greek Yogurt for an S setting if you prefer.
