Sometimes, I go out into the kitchen and find zero inspiration.
Zip. Zilch. Nada.
It’s especially aggravating when I’m hungry and need to eat like an hour ago.
Then there’s times when I’m just on a roll, banging out recipes left and right.
Like this past week or so…I’ve posted a delicious Creamy Coconut, Lemon, and Turmeric Shake, an Easy 3 Step Guacamole Recipe, AND I have a few more tasty posts in the process of being crafted. (more…)

Need a quick and easy snack, or dish to take to a potluck?
This guacamole recipe is so easy to make! Seriously, it’s like three steps…easy peasy! One of my daughter’s friends taught her how to make it and we call it Lily’s Salsa. I love it for two reasons – one, it made my daughter love avocados, which are full of healthy goodness, and two…it’s crazy easy. Oh, and so delicious!
Ok sorry, that was three reasons. Oops… (more…)
Have you ever had fresh coconut milk? It is truly divine!
And if you’re fortunate to live where they grow, you are probably nodding your head. The closest I’ve been to the tropics is…well, never actually. But I’ve had fresh coconut milk from the coconuts in the grocery store, and that beats canned by a mile. And to make this dreamy, Creamy Coconut, Lemon, and Turmeric Shake you want the decadent goodness that’s found inside a fresh coconut, even if that means picking coconuts from the local grocery store produce section.

Do you remember those maple nut candies made by Brach’s years ago?
They’re called Maple Nut Goodies, and I LOVED them as a kid. That combination of maple and peanut is just so delicious! If you have kicked sugar to the curb, those sweeties are definitely off the menu. But you can still get that nostalgic flavor by making this easy shake. (more…)
Red palm oil…what in the world do you do with that stuff, anyway?
Red palm oil is one of those good-for-you fats you want to include in your healthy eating plan. It’s deep, red-orange color may be a bit strange if you’re used to butter and coconut oil, but don’t let that scare you! With such a color just what would you do with red palm oil?
You’d make something yummy, that’s what. Something that color just seems natural with, too. Like carrot cake.
But first, here’s why you want to include red palm oil in your diet.
Whew, the last several weeks have been busy and I’ve struggled with some unusual fatigue. I haven’t been posting my “be blessed this Sabbath” posts. But I pray that this Sabbath is blessed and restful for you and yours.
Since we observe the 7th day Sabbath in our family, I don’t do any blog work from sundown on Friday to sundown Saturday. Sundown tonight in my area is: 8:48 pm.
This time is a much needed “island of rest” I look forward to every week. Time to disconnect from the busyness of every day life, time to study scriptures, time to fellowship with other believers, time for family.
I pray your home is filled with shalom (peace…and so much more) during this all-too-brief respite from life.
So there I was again, stricken with Food Apathy.
I needed to eat something, but nothing sounded good. I didn’t feel like making anything, either. How do I keep ending up here, anyway?
You know the drill…need something quick and easy…need to be on plan with Trim Healthy Mama.
Standing there, staring into the fridge and assessing the possible combinations with the available ingredients staring back at me (because we never have actual food in our house, just ingredients…), the proverbial light lit up above my head. (more…)

What comes to mind when I say “Tuna Salad”?
Maybe bland, mushy-ness sandwiched between soggy pieces of white bread, wrapped in plastic, waiting patiently on the shelf of a convenience store refrigerator (for who knows HOW long)? If that’s the case, you’ll be delightfully surprised with this punched-up tuna salad recipe. It’s a twist on a classic with an ingredient you probably never thought of adding. (more…)
