Egg Salad THM FP

What do you do when you really want egg salad on a toasted piece of sourdough bread but you don’t want a crossover? Low-fat cottage cheese and mustard blended together, mixed with diced hard boiled egg whites added just the right touch to make a Fuel Pull Egg Salad that not only tasted wonderful but tricked the eyes in looking like it was made with whole eggs. It was delicious served on toasted Sourdough bread with slices of tomatoes, onions, and lettuces leaves. Serving it on sourdough bread made my lunch a E from the carbs in the bread but it also can be served on lettuce leaves for a FP.

Walnut Frosties THM-S

Two English Walnut trees grace the front yard of the old home place where my parents live and my grandparents before them. These trees were planted by my grandparents who prized the nuts for baking. Memories were made picking up the walnuts with my grandmother and spreading them in the attic to dry. Over the winter months my grandfather would sit at the kitchen table shelling them.  I much prefer English walnuts over Black Walnuts which have a more bold earthy taste.  

Walnut Frosties THM-S

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine almond flour, baking mix, baking powder, and salt together. In mixer bowl, cream butter and preferred sweetener for 2 minutes. Add vanilla and egg. Mix well. Add almond flour mixture and mix for 3 minutes. Shape dough into balls and flatten to ½ in thick. Press an indentation in the center. Combine filling ingredients. Fill indentation with walnut filling, mounding slightly. Bake for 6-8 minutes or until very lightly browned.  Store in refrigerator. 30 cookies.

*English walnuts are the typical shelled walnut you will find in most grocery stores across the US. They have been cultivated to produce a large, easy to shell, mild tasting walnut. These are what most people prefer. However, there is another walnut called the California Black Walnuts that is native to the US. They have a bold, earthier flavor with very hard shells that are tough to crack and will stain your hands black. My family prefers the English walnut as the Black Walnut seems to be an acquired taste.

*cookies will be very soft when baked but will set as they cool. These are the best not over-baked.

*Brown Sugar Sweetener Substitute is a homemade sweetener mix that tastes just like brown sugar. You can use THM Gentle Sweet if you prefer.

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.
