Baked Potatoes in the Air Fryer

Who doesn’t love a yummy baked potato especially if it has a crunchy outside and a super soft inside? That’s the kind of baked potatoes I make in my Air Fryer. They are so easy to make and sure to please your taste buds.

These potatoes remind me of the ones you get at some steak houses. Feel free to add whatever ingredients you like inside your steamy hot potatoes.

Black Bean Salsa

Oh my goodness! Black Bean Salsa is one of my favorite new “go to” recipes. I am so grateful to my sweet friend Liz, who shared her recipe with me. This recipe is also called Black Bean Salad.

I love easy, delicious, and nutritious recipes and this one is definitely all three. If you enjoy Tex-Mex food, you will want to make this recipe for sure.

You can eat this salsa by itself or put it on tacos, fajitas, or eat it with chips and guacamole. It’s a win win however you choose to eat it.

Watch my video for step by step instructions. The recipe is underneath the video under “show more” on YouTube.

Chocolate Pumpkin Protein Muffins (gluten free)

Are you tired of “the same old same old” for breakfast? I have a great new recipe my friend Julie shared with me for a delicious breakfast muffin that is packed with protein and tastes amazing!

I am so thankful to be blessed with good friends. Not only did Julie share her recipe with me but she wanted to be on my YouTube channel. How cool is that? You can watch our video by clicking on the link down below. The recipe will be under the actual video under “show more”.

I just made a double batch of these muffins this morning. I added a bag of peanut butter chips to the mix and some chopped pecans. That took these muffins to a whole new level. I love that you can play around with recipes and add whatever you like.

Shopping at the Thai Market

I had such an amazing time in Thailand! Visiting the market was quite interesting. The people were so friendly and helpful. You can find just about anything at the market. You will see fresh meat, veggies, clothing, beauty products, and a plethora of things.

My friend Tammy said that Thai people are very concerned about cleanliness. I was glad to hear that. She said I didn’t have to be concerned about purchasing their food. The fruit and vegetables tasted so fresh and healthy. I loved the prices too.

Feel free to watch my video so that you can experience a little Thai culture with me.

Meet my new friend whose nickname is “Tim”.

Pad Thai Chicken (gluten free)

I went to Thailand for two weeks this past January. I love Thailand. The country is absolutely beautiful and the people are gracious. The food was amazing to say the least. It felt like we ate all day long every day, but boy did I sure enjoy it!

One of the fun things I got to do while there was cook Pad Thai Chicken in my friend, Tammy’s kitchen. We went to the market to pick up our supplies and then off to the grocery store where American food has been imported. I was thrilled that we were able to purchase gluten free items to cook with.

We also bought sticky rice with coconut milk and some fresh ripe mangoes for dessert. Oh my was it ever yummy!

You can watch my video for step by step instructions on how to make this delicious gluten free dish. The recipe will be below the actual video on Youtube.

Protein Packed Veggie Burgers (Gluten Free)

If you like black beans you will love this veggie burger. A friend challenged me to make a veggie burger and so I did. Not only did I like it, I really liked it. In fact, the first time I made them I cooked one and ate it and immediately cooked a second one to eat right away.

I’ve bought veggie burgers in the store and thought they were pretty good. But any time you can make something fresh, it’s going to be so much better. I played around with some ideas for making my patties and was quite pleased with the outcome.

Healthy DIY Klondike Bars

I think any time of year is a great time for Klondike Bars. If you have dairy and gluten allergies then you will love this recipe. Even if you don’t have issues with gluten or dairy and just want a healthier alternative, this is the recipe for you. It’s super easy and quick to make (not counting the freezer time). It’s tastes oh so yummy too!

My husband doesn’t care for the taste of coconut oil so I used refined coconut oil for this recipe. Refined coconut oil has a neutral scent and flavor. If you love the taste of coconut then go ahead and use regular organic coconut oil. I enjoy the Klondike bars both ways.

Super Easy & Delicious PAYDAY Candy Bars

My husband and I love PAYDAY candy bars. A few weeks ago he encouraged me to make homemade bars. So I took the challenge. Boy was I ever surprised at how yummy these things are. They are so easy to make and I personally thought they tasted even better than the store-bought PAYDAY candy bars.

These candy bars are great for snacking and great little treats to give away for Christmas. You could serve them at your holiday parties as well.

Watch the video below to see step by step instructions for making these awesome candy bars. The recipe is under the video on YouTube under “show more.”

Super easy and tastes yummy!

Are you a PAYDAY candy bar kind of person? What is your favorite candy?

Gluten and Dairy Free Almond Crackers

Who says you can’t eat delicious food if you can’t have gluten or dairy? A few years ago that might have been the case, but not now. There are so many yummy recipes available on Pinterest and in cookbooks. One of my friends who has Celiac Disease and eats dairy free is always working on creating delicious food that she can enjoy. Fortunately for me, she is willing to share her food and recipes.

I have a low tolerance for gluten. My body can handle some, but if I have too much, ouch! My body will hurt all over, especially my joints. So I am always interested in learning how to make delicious recipes that won’t cause inflammation.

I would love for you to meet my friend Ruth. She’s the one I was telling you about that has Celiac Disease. She’s in the video below showing how to make Gluten and Dairy Free Almond Crackers. After you watch the video, the recipe will be below the actual video on YouTube.

It seems like gluten and dairy are becoming more and more of a problem for many people. Is it a fad? I really don’t think so. I think with all the GMOs and the pesticides that are used in growing food it’s affecting our bodies like never before. Just my thoughts. What do you think?
