Vanilla Oolong Tea Concentrate THM-FP

We, as mothers often find ourselves with too much to do and not enough of time to take care of ourselves. Teas and drinks help to keep me from snacking but they do take time to prepare. Here is an easy way to have oolong tea ready at your fingertips. I find that when I have these small jars of concentrate in my fridge, I drink much more. My youngest daughter can put the ingredients in the jars and even fill them with hot water using the Keurig. I hope this handy tip will help you in the busyness of life.

Fresh Peach Pie THM XO

Fresh juicy peaches have come to our produce markets in the north-east corner of Pennsylvania where we now live. One of my favorite ways to serve fresh peaches is in a pie. My family loves it and if I am not careful, it is gone before I get to taste it. I used John-Boy Peaches and they have a very good flavor. Some of my favorite peaches are Red Haven, Contender, and for fresh eating Saturn Peach. Saturn peaches have white flesh and are donut shaped.

Vanilla/Caramel Iced Coffee THM-FP

Summertime is rapidly approaching and I am always on the lookout for refreshing drinks to serve to my family and to guests. Iced Coffee is a favorite and this recipe uses leftover brewed coffee from our breakfast time. You can adjust the extracts and sweeteners to your liking if you prefer it less sweet. I added just a bit of cream to get a smooth creamy texture but it still is within THM FP guidelines. I use my hand blender or my Ninja Blender to thoroughly mix it. My family enjoys this drink and I hope you will, too.

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.

Sour Cream Raspberry Pie THM-S

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.

Sourdough Doughnuts THM-XO

Fasnacht Day is tomorrow and widely celebrated in Lancaster County. The tradition of eating fastnachts on Fat Tuesday started with the Pennsylvania Dutch as they were looking for recipes to use up lard before Lent. Fastnacht is a German word which means “night before the fast. I have always saved the lard we make when we butcher hogs in the winter to fry doughnuts. These sourdough doughnuts are very tasty and our family loves them.

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.
