Cranberry Pie THM S, Sugar-free, Low-carb

“Tis” that time of year when cranberries can be found in the grocery stores again. Those of us that loves this bright little berry, cheer, while others wonder why!

This Cranberry Pie has been a favorite in my family for many years. I was so please that it could be made sugar-free and low-carb and still retain all the good flavors we loved.

Italian Meatball Sheet-pan Dinner THMS, DF, SF

Need a quick easy meal? This one is a favorite of ours and so easy to make. Best of all, each person can pick and choose what they want to eat. I always make two trays for our family. The first pan I will fill with low-carb non starchy vegetables (THM S) and the second pan gets a mixture of different kinds of potatoes (THM XO). My family loves these type of meals. It is a win for mom because they are so simple to prepare and doesn’t leave you with a huge pile of dishes to wash!!

Espresso Mousse THM-FP

Coffee, every day, any time, any way!! I enjoy coffee and desserts so why not combine the two into a light refreshing Mousse. Many desserts are full of fats and calories. This Espresso Mousse is full of flavor and protein but light in fats and calories. It is a tasty ending to a meal or for a bedtime snack. I garnished this Mousse with a scoop of fat-free Greek Yogurt flavored with THM vanilla extract and Gentle Sweet, Espresso Powder, and 12 Lily’s chocolate chips to keep it within the guidelines for a FP.
