I was in one of those I’m Hungry But Nothing Sounds Good And I Don’t Feel Like Cooking moods. It’s a familiar mood, unfortunately. Last night when I went to bed, I was determined to get up in the morning and spend time with YHWH and His Word first thing. BEFORE checking email and Facebook and YouFood. Before writing blog posts (another area in which I was feeling uninspired). I… Continue Reading

Yesterday, I wrote about repurposing…or Making Do With What We Have. Ironically, that’s just what I had to do when making supper later. The result is this deliciously easy Spaghetti Soup! Wait…it’s hot and humid out (or so I hear), why on earth am I making soup? Well, because when I went to make spaghetti sauce, for some reason I grabbed the tomato juice from my pantry instead of… Continue Reading
If you cook, you know how important it is to keep food from sticking, right? Do you use parchment paper often? Does it just burn your cookies to buy something that’s just going to get tossed out? It does mine! I used to think parchment paper was just a frou-frou Martha Stewart thing, but then I tried baking on it and loved the non-stick qualities. I even reused it as… Continue Reading
Can I be excited? My Dark Chocolate Coconut Cake in a Mug recipe was included in the NEW Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook! You’ll find it on page 293. When you think diet, what comes to your mind? Deprivation? Like, all the things you can’t eat anymore? Pizza. Cake. Cookies. Chocolate. Ice cream. That’s one thing I love about Trim Healthy Mama. If I want cake, I can have it – generally… Continue Reading
This Easy Wasa Pizza came about because I was craving pizza. It was getting close to bedtime, so it had to be easy. It had to fit in with the Trim Healthy Mama guidelines I am following, too, because… Confession: I love pizza. I could eat it every day. Seriously. Reality: the pizza I have loved all my life makes me fat. It’s unhealthy.
If you love garlic and want an easy way to peel it, then you need to check out my From The Farm Favorite this week! Since I want to make some fermented garlic soon, this will certainly come in handy. I’m pretty sure Mister will be more than happy to help me peel the garlic using this easy method.
These easy, baked stuffed jalapeno peppers make a great snack or party food. One serving (two pepper halves) falls into the Fuel Pull category for you Trim Healthy Mamas out there. You could have more in an S setting. I wanted to create something that would fit with FP, because I wasn’t very hungry but was craving something spicy (again!) so I used a combination of light cream cheese… Continue Reading
One thing my recent dietary changes has brought about is Learning To Like Foods I Always Thought I Hated. I’m broadening my food horizons these days. I’ve never been a big fan of squash necessarily, but this Savory Roasted Butternut Squash has me rethinking the I Don’t Like Squash thing I’ve claimed for so long. Because it’s really very good. And it’s good for you.
Looking for some great ideas for those Fuel Pull snacks, Trim Healthy Mamas? Since I’ve been on the Trim Healthy Mama plan, I haven’t done a whole lot of Fuel Pull snacks or meals, since they are more restrictive in both carbs and fat. I don’t like restrictions…what can I say? Well, and part of it was that I didn’t want to blow it and end up with something E… Continue Reading
