Sweet Potato Skins THM-E

This post was created in partnership with Ninja and I received a complimentary product but all opinions in this post are my own.

Some days I forget that healthy carbs are so important in our diet, too. Today, I was in my basement and saw three bushels of sweet potatoes that we harvested from our garden last fall. My husband had wrapped each sweet potato individually in newspaper and packed them in crates. They are still as nice as when we first harvested them. I decided to try something different with them. Roasted Potato Skins were a former treat for our family and sweet potatoes worked wonderful for a healthy option. They were a hit with our family and I hope you will enjoy them, too. The Air-Fry Crisping with the Ninja® Foodi™ Pressure Cooker created a caramelizing crispness to these sweet potatoes.

Sourdough Bagels THM-E

Have you ever walked past in bagel shop in the city and wondered if you will find a healthy on-plan one? These sourdough bagels have a chewy crust and a dense interior just like those from a specialty shop. The dough for these bagels can be mixed and allowed to ferment in the fridge overnight. They are then cooked and baked the following day. You can top them with any topping of your choice or even leave them plain. I mixed a Homemade Everything Bagel Topping for those pictured below. A favorite of mine is toast a split bagel and top with just a tiny bit of cultured butter.

Air-fried Cajun Chicken Wings with Spicy Cajun Sauce THM-S

This post was created in partnership with Ninja and I received a complimentary product but all opinions in this post are my own.

Wings are a favorite food to get at pizza-style restaurants but so often they are covered in a sugary sauce. These Cajun Chicken Wings are juicy and crispy after being fried using Air-Fry Crisping in the Ninja® Foodi™ Pressure Cooker. The Air-Fry Crisping gives wonderful results without all the fat of deep frying. I loved the simplicity of the Ninja Foodie as it so easy to use and the wings were a golden brown in a short time. Served with Spicy Cajun Sauce these wings have become a favorite in our house. Pair these with a large garden salad for a wonderful meal.

Sour Cream Raspberry Pie THM-S

Today, March 14th is National Pi Day!!! One way to celebrate is with a Sour Cream Raspberry Pie. For years I have had a Black Raspberry patch at the edge of my garden. They are my all time favorite berry. I do have red raspberries, strawberries, and blueberries plants but I love to walk through my black raspberry patch picking the plump juicy fruit the best. My children always hated the spring time when mom said it was time to trim raspberries. Leather gloves and long sleeves shirts were a must. Some summers my patch yielded over 130 pints but I have scaled it down to a more manageable size much to my children’s relief.

Seafood Pasta Salad THM-S

Pasta Salads are always delightful at picnics and carry in dinners. Our family loves any type of salad and seafood, so why not combine the two! Most Seafood Pasta Salads use imitation crab meat but I have chosen to use canned shrimp and crab meat because of all the additives in imitation crab. This salad also reminds me of warm sun, sandy beaches, and ocean waves.
