Roasted Sugar and Spice Pepitas
Another great recipe for Pepitas! Pumpkin seeds—also known as pepitas—are flat, dark green seeds. Some are encased in a yellow-white husk (often called the “shell”), although some varieties of pumpkins produce seeds without shells. Pumpkin seeds have a malleable, chewy texture and a subtly sweet, nutty flavor.
Sugared Pepitas a Healthy Snack
One of our favorite snack are organic Pepitas aka pumpkin kernels. Plus they are very good for you since they are high in manganese, zinc and protein!
Instant Pot Meatloaf – THM E or FP
Instant Pot Meatloaf was developed from a recipe given to me by my dear friend and coworker, Karen B. It’s our favorite meatloaf and helps to keep our trim going. The horseradish gives it a bit of zing without over doing it.
Heirloom Cherry Tomato Corn Salad – THM E
Heirloom Cherry Tomato Corn Salad is created from fresh finds at the farmer’s market. My fresh finds at the farmer’s market often include beautiful heirloom tomatoes, cucumbers and fresh sweet corn. Heirloom tomatoes are Non-GMO and are usually organically grown. They are very flavorful and the colors are so much fun! We love this salad with grilled turkey sausage burgers or grilled salmon and a small serving of herb flavored brown rice or quinoa.
Sweet Corn in the Instant Pot – THM E
Sweet Corn in the Instant Pot is one of the best flavors of summer. I love cooking sweet corn on the cob in my Instant Pot. It’s so quick and easy. It takes longer to husk, wash and clean the corn than it does to cook it! We enjoy an ear of corn with grilled chicken breasts and a nice side salad of leafy greens, cucumbers, radishes, bell peppers and cherry tomatoes.

Instant Pot Peanut Butter Cheesecake with a Kiss of Chocolate
This peanut butter cheesecake was a huge hit at our house because three of my husband’s favorite things are cheesecake, peanut butter and chocolate. This is another recipe from dessert creating days at Millard’s at the Summit restaurant.
Quick, Easy Mozzarella Chicken – THM S
This is a great quick dish for your family. Richard is a pasta lover and this is one of his favorites meals. The chicken is moist and tender, and the penne pasta is perfectly married with the sauce. Serve Chicken Mozzarella with a side of steamed summer squashes, broccoli, Italian green beans or a leafy green salad.
Fun Veggie from the Farmer’s Market – Cue Ball Zucchini
I love visiting the local farmer’s markets and developing relationships with the growers is so rewarding to me. These farmers and growers have taught me so much about vegetables and ingredients along my journey.
