This lemon sticky poke cake is low carb, gluten free, fun and easy to make. It can be cooked in the Instant Pot or traditionally baked the oven. It has a very unique texture and an incredible lemon flavor.

Strawberry Salad Dressing THM FP

I love having a salad with my THM E meals but finding a salad dressing that fits this meal was nearly impossible.

This work experience is how my love of creating unique desserts emerged.

Turkey Breast in the Instant Pot

I love making a turkey breast in the Instant Pot. It’s quick and comes out moist and juicy every time! We love turkey breast for sandwiches, either sliced or as a turkey salad. It’s much healthier than buying deli meats and it’s a blessing to help us with those E meals.  Will often have sliced turkey breast with apple slices and a side salad of greens and chopped cucumbers.
