Strawberry Cream THM-FP

Strawberries herald the spring/summer season as roadsides stands and markets display boxes of crimson fruit. They are the easiest fruit to grow in backyard gardens and produce very well. This dessert is refreshing on warm, summer days and best of all it is a Fuel Pull. Using frozen berries thickens the dessert almost immediately after blending in soften gelatin. I am enjoying more FP desserts to balance out those meals when I just need a bit more protein and something sweet.

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 or sprouted bread with slices of tomatoes, onions, and lettuces leaves. Serving it on sourdough/sprouted bread made my lunch a E from the carbs in the bread but it also can be served on lettuce leaves for a FP. I, also love to use Refrigerated Pickled Jalapenos on my sandwich.

Coffee Roasted Beef and Pork THM-S

With Oven, Insta-pot, and Crock Pot Instructions.

Roasted Beef is a comfort food to many people. My late mother-in-law would roast beef and pork together and it was so delicious. We, usually don’t think of coffee as an ingredient in roast beef but the acids in the coffee help to tenderize the meat and make a rich dark broth. I use my own All Purpose Seasoned Salt blend to season the meat but you can use other on-plans Season salts as well. I do think the addition of Smoked Paprika to the All Purpose Seasoned Salt gives a wonderful flavor to the roasted meat.

Wilted Spinach Salad THM-FP

Spring—what a wonderful time of the year when everything turns green and begins to grow. One of the first seeds to be planted in my garden are spinach and radish seeds. Spinach is very easy to grow, loves cool weather, and is so tasty in garden salads. This easy to make salad uses just a few ingredients but is big in flavor. I can’t wait to plant my garden but since our new place is further north I haven’t planted yet. Maybe this weekend I can get my early crop out.

Coconut Bundt Cake 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.

Coconut cake has been family favorite for many years. I found this cute little 3 cup bundt pan in a houseware store a few weeks ago. It was just the perfect size to fit in my Ninja® Foodi™ Pressure Cooker . This cake is so moist, uses the new THM Coconut Extract, and is topped with a creamy icing with coconut sprinkled on. If you love coconut as much as we do this cake will be a winner in your family, too.

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.
