Summer Dessert We’ve Loved

For a while now, I’ve been craving the Strawberry Pretzel Salad. I never had this when I was young but loved it several years ago when I had my first taste. The saltiness of the pretzels really paired well with the sweetness of the rest of the dessert.

Well, I saw a keto version of this deliciousness several months ago and decided I needed to make it. Independence Day seemed like a good excuse to make it. ;) The creator said the pretzel layer was her favorite in the original dessert and so she had to get it just right. I believe she nailed it! We loved it!

My Tweaks

I made two tweaks to her recipe.

  1. I used Wild Berry Zinger Tea because I don’t like raspberry. I know, sad but true. However the Wild Berry Zinger Tea worked great for me. This has some raspberry in it but it isn’t blaringly obvious, thus tasted great.
  2. I used Neufchatel, which is a lower fat cream cheese, because I am desperately trying to lose weight and appreciate a few less calories where I can manage it.

That’s it. This deliciousness is easy to make. I made the crust early in the day because it does require baking the three ingredients in the oven for 10-15 minutes.

The cream cheese layer is no-bake and very similar to my no bake cheesecake recipe. Very simple ingredients. Just remember to get the cream cheese (or Neufchatel) out when you make the crust so that it softens by the time you are ready to make the cheesecake part.

The top layer is just sliced strawberries with a small amount of ‘jello’ to hold it all together. I refrigerated my bowl of jello and set the timer to stir it after five minutes and then forgot to reset the timer for the last five minutes and it was a solid mass. So I had to do that part over again but I just reused the same two tea bags from before. (There’s something to be said for not cleaning up after yourself immediately. :D )

I hope you’ll give this dessert a try. It really tastes great! Hubby said, “I think I know what I want for my birthday dessert.” :) My 26yo son said it kind of tasted like a pecan pie wanna be. :D He has a sweet-tooth and added more sweetener to the top of his piece the next day and liked it better; he said the strawberries were too tart/bitter. He’d never had Strawberry Pretzel Salad before so had no idea ‘context’ for what this dessert was trying to recreate. However, in the last couple of years we’ve found that we love pecan pie thus his pecan pie comment. ;) We all loved it! Kudos to Jacinda.

Until next time,

Low Carb Taco Mac Salad ~ Lifeofjoy.me

Taco Mac Salad Low Carb Version

We have really missed this meal since going keto, low carb, and THM but last night I Trim Healthy Mama-fied it. :) I made it as an “s” meal, which is a healthy fats, low carb meal, because I wanted me some cheese. :) If you are not on a low carb or low fat diet, you can find the original recipe here.

Here are the changes I made:

  • used Dreamfields pasta
  • eliminated the tortilla chips but did have pork rinds on the table for any that wanted them
  • added some finely chopped mushrooms to the meat to boost the health benefits
  • Michael and I used the FP 1000 Island dressing instead of catalina or ranch

Start by boiling water for your pasta.

Low carb pasta ~ lifeofjoy.meChop up your lettuce and place it in the bowl.

Salad ~ Lifeofjoy.meShred or cube the cheese. Unfortunately we used our cheddar cheese because I forgot and used it earlier in the week, so we had to use mozzarella. :(

Cubed Mozzarella ~ Lifeofjoy.meTiff added some diced red pepper. It wasn’t enough but it was what we had.

salad ~ Lifeofjoy.meBrown the ground meat; we used ground turkey.

browning ground meat ~ Lifeofjoy.meQuickly chop mushrooms in a food processor.

chopped mushrooms ~ Lifeofjoy.meWhen most of the liquid is evaporated, season it however you like your taco meat seasoned. I used these with salt and pepper.

taco seasonings ~ Lifeofjoy.meVery light on the cumin, oregano, and garlic powder. Heavier on the paprika, onion powder, salt, and pepper. And a bit heavier with the chili powder, unless you don’t prefer it. ;)

When the pasta is done, drain and rinse with cool water. Then combine with the lettuce and meat.

Serving Taco Mac Salad ~ Lifeofjoy.meSometimes we keep the cheese cubes out for each to include themselves as sometimes they sink to the bottom of the bowl and they are not evenly distributed through the salad. ;) The kids don’t prefer the tomatoes either.

Taco mac salad ~ Lifeofjoy.meThen I add my dressing.

Dressing on Taco Mac Salad ~ Lifeofjoy.meYUM!!!

Taco Bites ~ Lifeofjoy.me

Taco Bites

I really missed making my taco bites last year, since we were low carb and couldn’t have the wonton wrappers that I had used to make them before in this recipe. So this year I decided to look for some low carb ones. I figured as a worst case scenario, I’d use low carb whole wheat tortillas.

I was thrilled to find this recipe. It is really quite simple. Unfortunately I forgot to take two of the pictures but I think you can get the idea. ;)

Start by placing about a tablespoon of cheese in a flattened pile on a silpat on a cookie sheet/jelly roll pan. I fit 12 piles on my large tray. Leave about 2 inches between piles. (So sorry I forgot to take a picture of this step. :( )

Brown your meat. We used ground turkey. Drain well and season as you like for tacos. (The other step I forgot to take a picture of. :( )

You bake the cheese on 350º for about 5-7 minutes. You want the edges to be slightly browned and the center melted. Let them cool for about a minute, so you can handle them without burning yourself. The arrange them into mini muffin pans.

mini Taco "shells" ~ Lifeofjoy.me

Add the seasoned cooked ground meat.

undressed taco bites ~ Lifeofjoy.me

Add toppings of choice. No more cheese is needed but some avocado, tomato, lettuce, and/or sour cream are good options.

Taco bite with avocado, tomato, and lettuce ~ Lifeofjoy.me

These were super simple and good. Makes sure your meat is not wet or it will seep out the cracks and holes of the cheese. We didn’t eat ours right away and they were a tad bit cold. I’ll wait to fix them until the last thing next time so they are hotter.

Hope you enjoy them. Go here to homemadeinterest.com for the full recipe.

I hope you have a great New Year’s Day. We are having a nice, laid back day full of rest, relaxation, and gaming (probably individually on different electronic devices as we played board games together last night).

Until next time, God bless,

Peanut Caramel Candy ~ Lifeofjoy.me

Pay Off Day Candies

Michael loves Payday candy bars. So every now and then I make him these candies. The first several times I made them I followed the directions and tried to spoon it out into circular candies, which did not turn out well for me. However they tasted delicious. So I got creative and decided to let laziness take over. ;) I put the candy mixture into a loaf pan with a piece of parchment paper to make it easier to remove. Then I just cut it into pieces/bars. :)

So here’s how you do it.

Put the butter, gentle sweet, and stevia into a pan and begin stirring as it melts.


butter to melt ~ Lifeofjoy.me
melt butter and sweetener ~ Lifeofjoy.me
Sweeteners ~ Lifeofjoy.me

While it is just starting to heat up get your other ingredients ready to go: nuts, peanut butter, heavy cream and caramel extract.

Add caramel extract to heavy cream ~ Lifeofjoy.me

When the butter and sweeteners are melted, add in the heavy cream and caramel extract.


melted butter and sweetener ~ Lifeofjoy.me
Add cream and caramel ~ Lifeofjoy.me

Whisk as it slowly boils.


Whisk away ~ Lifeofjoy.me

Keep whisking until it becomes a nice caramel color.


Nearly caramel colored ~ LIfeofjoy.me

Watch it carefully once it begins to brown because it goes from that to this in just a few seconds, it seems.


Right colored caramel ~ Lifeofjoy.me

Now we add in the tiny bit of natural peanut butter and the slightly chopped peanuts and combine.


Adding peanuts and pb ~ Lifeofjoy.me
pay off day candy ~ Lifeofjoy.me

Here’s where I cheat and just put it in a parchment lined loaf pan. Since I made a double batch today, I’m putting it in a parchment lined 8×8 pan.


Put in pan ~ Lifeofjoy.me

Then I put it in the refrigerator and let it harden up. I’ll cut this in half and then each half into 8 strips/bars. The recipe is supposed to make 16 pieces, so I reckon each of our bars are two pieces. ;) It doesn’t last long around here.

DIY Payday Candy ~ Lifeofjoy.me

The full recipe is on page 381 of the Trim Healthy Mama cookbook and can be found online if you search for it, especially if you have a THM membership.

I hope this helps you make this delectable candy.

Open-face Philly Cheese Chicken ~ Lifeofjoy.me

Philly Cheese Chicken Skillet

Creamy, cheesy chicken cooked with onions, mushrooms, and bell peppers.

When I was in my early twenties, I worked at a pizza and sub shop. I love pizza but when I worked there I realized that I also loved sub sandwiches. Specifically Philly cheese steak sandwiches. Oh, don’t get me wrong, I also really liked Italian  hoagies and hot ham and cheese subs too. Most every time I worked, instead of getting a small pan pizza, I got a Philly Cheese Steak.

Early in my marriage, I found Steak-Umm steaks and figured out how to make them at home. Yummo! Well, Michael cannot have steak currently, so I decided that I’d try to make this over with chicken. We all loved it. :)

Without further adieu, here’s how to do it.

Slice the veggies and chicken into thin strips.

Slicing onions ~ Lifeofjoy.meSauté the veggies until nearly done to your liking.

IP Creamy Pork ~ Lifeofjoy.me

IP Creamy Pork (Chicken)

I had some pork in the freezer that I wanted to use for dinner one night. I searched online and found a few interesting recipes. But what got my attention was this cream of mushroom soup DIY recipe that was already THM compliant. Her choice was to use her instant pot as a slow cooker and I wanted to use it to get it done quickly and as hands free as possible. I wasn’t really interested in her ranch flavor either.

So I kept searching and found this keto recipe for cooking pork chops. I shied away from this recipe because it had heavy whipping cream and I need to back off the dairy and lots of fat for a while. I decided to mesh the two recipes into my own making and share it here with you today. :)

Warning: Start an hour before you need to eat, so not exactly INSTANT.

I do this recipe with both chicken and pork. I used some bone-in pork sirloin steaks, I’ve used chicken thighs and boneless chicken breast. All turn out well. :)

Start by turning the instant pot on Saute and add a little bit of oil so the chops don’t stick as you brown them.

saute in instant pot ip ~ Lifeofjoy.meSeason the meat on both sides. Now you could be all professional like and mix the seasonings in a bowl and then rub them on the meat but I’ll be honest here, I just sprinkle on the salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, and paprika. I try to season one side, then put the meat, seasoned side down onto the pan or in the instant pot then season the other side while the first side is browning.

brown meat ~ lifeofjoy.meWhile that is browning, dice or slice up the mushrooms and onions. Now, I’m going to be honest with you, you should probably take the meat out and put in the veggies but I didn’t do that. I just dumped the chopped onions and mushrooms on top of my meat. Then I sprinkled in the rest of the seasonings and added the broth and almond milk.

Add remaining ingredients ~Lifeofjoy.mePressure cook for 25 minutes. Let it warm for 10 minutes and then release the pressure on the instant pot. Now here is where I goofed this time around. I was so hungry and ready to eat that I forgot to thicken the gravy.

Push the meat to the side. Press the saute button and once the broth in the pot is starting to simmer I shake in some gluccie (gluccomannon) and sprinkle in about a half tablespoon of baking blend. Let it simmer for a few minutes and then add the meat back in or serve separately, your choice.

We serve this with a big head of cauliflower, mashed (caulitaters) and three cans of fried green beans.

Instant Pot Creamy Pork ~ Lifeofjoy.meTHM IP Creamy Pork ~ Lifeofjoy.me

IP Creamy Pork (Chicken)

Ingredients

  • Meat (pork chops, steaks, chicken breast or thighs, etc.)
  • about 1 Tablespoon oil
  • onion powder
  • garlic powder
  • salt
  • pepper
  • paprika
  • cayenne
  • parsley
  • about 6 ounces mushrooms, sliced, diced, or chopped

  • 3/4 cup almond milk
  • 3/4 cup chicken broth
  • sprinkling of glucomannan or xanthan gum
  • about 1/2 tablespoon baking blend (optional)

Instructions

  1. Heat the oil in instant pot on saute.
  2. Season one side of the meat, with desired herbs and spices (I hold out the parsley and cayenne until they are browned.)
  3. Brown the seasoned side of the meat and season the other side.
  4. When browned, flip and brown other side.
  5. Add remaining ingredients except for glucomannan/xanthan gum and optional baking blend.
  6. Pressure cook for 25 minutes with vent closed.
  7. When it beeps, let it sit for another 10 minutes if you can wait. 😉 Then quick release.
  8. Move meat to side (or remove for easier whisking)
  9. Press saute.
  10. Add glucomannan and optional baking blend as you stir and it simmers. It will thicken up a bit as it sits.

Slice Zucchini Chocolate Cake ~ lifeofjoy.me

Mostess Bundt Cake

Think Hostess cream filled cupcakes but bigger. :)

So, I took the Mostess Cupcake recipe from the Trim Healthy Table cookbook page 395, doubled it, and baked it in a fluted pan.

Mostess Bundt Cake ~ Lifeofjoy.meThe reason I doubled it is because it makes twelve cupcakes and I know that a usual cake batter that can be baked as cupcakes, bundt cake, or two layer cake makes 24 cupcakes, so I figured it would be a very short bundt cake. Doubling it made it the right height. :)

I made the cake one day and then the next day I made the cream filling and ganache, combined it and refrigerated it to eat the next day. It was scrumptious! :)

Inject Cream in Cake ~ Lifeofjoy.meI shared a video about filling it with the cream on my instagram account on Saturday. The next picture shows the injector I used. It was a cheap one but it has a tip that allows you to inject the cream in the cake without removing any cake bits. :) Then it has other tips for decorating.

Cream blobs on top ~ Lifeofjoy.meTiffany’s is better but we couldn’t find hers. They can be found rather inexpensively. We found her nice one for $2 at TJMaxx, I think. Mine was a little bit more at Walmart. Mine holds more cream but isn’t all that great. ;)

Every time I make the ganache, it is too thin and I have to add more chocolate chips. It thickens nicely at first but it is like I pour it the cream too slowly and it gets too warm to thicken after that. Hmmm, I may be on to something here . . . I do mine in a double boiler . . . maybe I need to turn the burner off when I add the cream so it doesn’t get too warm.

Well, anyway, just be aware that you may need to add more chocolate chips or not add all of the cream but it is worth the effort. :)

Mostess Bundt Cake ~ lfieofjoy.meCut Mostess Cake ~ Lifeojfoy.meSince my ganache is so thin, it makes a bit of a mess. ;) But we eat it anyway. :)

Slice Zucchini Chocolate Cake ~ lifeofjoy.meWell, I hope you enjoyed my spin on the Mostess Cupcakes.

Breakfast Burrito ~ Lifeofjoy.me

Sausage Veggie Breakfast Burrito

Nice mix of veggies, sausage, and egg without any one ingredient being overbearing.

Last week I was hungry for a breakfast burrito and was so glad that I still had a Joseph’s Lavash left in the refrigerator. Half of one lavash is allowable once in a while on Trim Healthy Mama in an S meal. So I cut a lavash in half and Tiffany got half and I got half.

Cut a Joseph's Lavash ~ Lifeofjoy.meI put two to four ounces of sausage in my skillet and began to brown it.

Bulk Sausage in Pan ~ Lifeofjoy.meThen I grated a small to medium zucchini into the pan.

Grating in Zucchini ~ Lifeofjoy.meNext dice up a mini pepper or about a quarter of a medium bell pepper. I used a yellow one this time but any color will do.

Yellow Pepper ~ Lifeofjoy.meAdd it to the pan and saute.

Cooking vegetables and sausage ~ Lifeofjoy.meDice up one large mushroom and either one some tomato and add them as well. Season with salt, pepper, and nutritional yeast, if desired. (The salt helps to draw out the moisture and cook the veggies.)

Breakfast burrito ~ Lifeofjoy.meYou can either add a bit of oil, like coconut oil, or just a bit of water, if things start sticking to your pan.

Slightly beat two to four eggs. The first time I made this I only used two eggs because we didn’t want egg to over power the taste but even though I wrote looked at what I’d written down previously, I did four eggs before I realized it. 😯 Not to worry though, we were still on plan, the egg did not over power the taste, and we had a lighter lunch.

Beat eggs ~ Lifeofjoy.meAdd these to the pan and mix in.

Eggs added to Burrito filling ~ Lifeofjoy.me (I was dealing with a very overcast morning, so some of the pictures did not turn out very good.)

When the egg is nearly cooked through, add two wedges of light laughing cow cheese. You could use the pepperjack version if you want it spicy.

Breakfast Burritos ~ Lifeofjoy.mePlace half of the filling on a lavash half, roll and enjoy. :) Tiffany puts hers on he length of the lavash.

Skinnier Burritos ~ Lifeofjoy.me

And I put mine down the width. Hers are skinnier than mine.Sausage Breakfast Burrito ~ Lifeofjoy.me

Pizza Salad ~ Lifeofjoy.me

Pizza Salad

The flavors you love on a pizza over a bed of lettuce.

Well, we had a bit of a heat wave before the cooler temperatures are here, to stay I hope, and we had Pizza Salad.

Pizza Salad is super simple. You put whatever toppings you like on a pizza on top of a salad! Yep, I know, not really much of a recipe but it was good.

I took some chicken sausage links, removed the casings, and pinched it off into smaller pieces and browned them.

Browned Chicken Sausage ~ Lifeofjoy.meI also sautéed some onions and mushrooms because I love those on both pizza and a salad. :)

Make your base salad as plain or as jazzed up as you like. We just had some lettuce, a few sliced radishes, some diced yellow pepper, a little shredded carrot, and CHEESE the other night. I had some really good mozzarella from Aldi that we added to this with a little shredded cheddar. The mozzarella was really good and creamy.

Pizza Salad ~ Lifeofjoy.meI cut up a roma tomato because I had one that needed to be used. I put it in a side dish because not everyone likes tomato.

The first time I made this, we used some Parmesan cheese instead of the other cheeses. We also add pepperoni, either turkey or regular.

Pizza Salad 1 ~ Lifeofjoy.meOh! Tiffany likes sun-dried tomatoes, so we have those available too. Seriously, this is all about whatever flavors you like on your pizza. :) We love meaty pizzas, so we even add bacon bits sometimes. Ham is not out of the question either.

Some times I cut the pepperoni into quarters and sprinkle throughout the salad.

I served it with a homemade catalina that used tomato paste in it. I cannot remember which one now but I think it was a mix of these two here  (eliminated the honey) and here (and I used an on-plan sweetener, not splenda).

Pizza Salad ~ Lifeofjoy.meEach person’s plate of salad looks a bit different. To each his own. :)

Tiff's Pizza Salad ~ Lifeofjoy.meSean's Pizza Salad ~ Lifeofjoy.mePizza Salad ~ lifeofjoy.meIt is almost silly to add a recipe but here goes anyway. :D

Eggs and Hash

Low-Carb veggies for breakfast! Simple, quick, and filling breakfast of eggs and zucchini.

This recipe is hardly a recipe at all but if you eat eggs several mornings every week, it can get boring to have them the same way every day. This is one way to have them and if you like a runny yolk, you can have your lovely over-easy eggs on top and let that yolk run onto the hash. Mmmm mmmm!

Now, I failed to take pictures of cutting the zucchini but it is really easy. I cut a small/medium zucchini into 4 slices down the length of the zucchini. Then cut eat slab into about 4 strips. Then cut those strips into small little cubes. :)

Put it in a skillet with a bit of coconut oil.Zucchini Hash ~ Lifeofjoy.meSeason as desired. I only used a bit of salt and a tiny bit of pepper.

Cook until desired doneness.

Zucchini for Breakfast ~ Lifeofjoy.meThere is a lot here because I did enough for Tiffany and I, so that was 4 zucchini.

Cook your eggs. If you are only cooking for yourself, move the zucchini to on side of the pan and cook two eggs on the other side, however you like them best.

I like my eggs over medium and Tiffany likes hers scrambled and well done.

Fried Eggs ~ Lifeofjoy.meNo, that is not a pancake! It is how Tiffany likes her scrambled eggs cooked.

Place on top of cooked zucchini.

Eggs on Zucchini ~ Lifeofjoy.me

Add some nutritional yeast for a nice cheesy taste and lots of vitamins. (It took me a eating the nutritional yeast a few times before I warmed up to it and tasted it as cheesy, so give it a few tries.)

Eggs and Hash ~ Lifeofjoy.meThis one is so simple I hesitate to write up the recipe but here goes.

Eggs and Hash

Ingredients

  • 2 zucchini, diced
  • coconut oil
  • 2 eggs
  • salt, pepper, and nutritional yeast (optional)

Instructions

  1. Put a little coconut oil in your pan or spray it with oil instead.
  2. Add zucchini.
  3. Season as desired, I used some salt and a bit of pepper.
  4. Cook, cook, cook, until desired tenderness/brownness
  5. Move the zucchini to the side and cook 2 eggs on the other side of the pan, as desired.
  6. Place zucchini hash on plate and top with cooked eggs.
  7. Sprinkle with nutritional yeast for a nice cheesy taste, with lots of vitamins.
