I love mixing different fruit with lemon juice in my drinks! And this combination of blueberries and lemons goes together so wonderfully!

A cute little bowl of frozen blueberries

This yummy drink has a full serving of blueberries. I used frozen blueberries in this recipe, but fresh will work too.

Frosted Blueberry Lemonade with bowl of blueberries.

The collagen is optional, but using it will give you a good serving of protein and it has so many health benefits. My favorite brands of collagen are Custom Collagen and Integral Collagen.

I love to use reusable straws with my drinks, like these metal straws. I was looking at these metal straws too, I think the different sizes would be so handy.

If you are following Trim Healthy Mama, this recipe as written in an E (energizing). If you would like to make it an FP (fuel pull) lower the amount of blueberries in the recipe to 1/2 cup.

Lemonade Good Girl Moonshine - MamaShire.com

This version of the Good Girl Moonshine adds in some lemon juice for a delightful, healthy lemonade. This is a sipper drink in that it can be sipped on throughout the day. I also have the Strawberry Lemonade version listed in the recipe, but this one should be drank in a shorter time period, due to the carbs in the strawberries. If you prefer to keep it a sipper drink, add a few whole strawberries to the drink to float around and flavor it.

  • Use raw apple cider vinegar “with the mother” like Bragg Organic ACV. You should be able to find it in your local grocery store. Since apple cider vinegar is rather tart, start off with the smaller amount and work your way up to get used to it.
  • If you aren’t sure if you like the taste of ginger, just put a few shakes of powdered ginger in your drink and then slowly adjust it over time to get up to a teaspoon of it in your drink.
  • When drinking apple cider vinegar throughout the day it’s best to use straws. It helps keep the acid from the ACV off of your teeth. Our favorite straws are these metal straws.  ACV can actually whiten your teeth, but should be rinsed off. You can read more about the health benefits of ACV here.

For Strawberry Lemonade Good Girl Moonshine

  • All of the above
  • 2-3 small strawberries

Instructions

Strawberry Lemonade Good Girl Moonshine

  1. Blend strawberries in blender with about 1 cup of water. Add to the above mixture. With the strawberries blended in the drink this adds a small amount of carbs and should not be sipped on throughout the day, but rather enjoyed in a smaller amount of time.
  2. Or just add in the whole strawberries and let them float around flavoring your drink. Super fun!

Lazy Grain-Free Chicken Nuggets

Lazy Grain-Free Chicken Nuggets with simple steps so you can take it a little easier in the kitchen while serving this family favorite! Dairy-Free, THM-S

Lazy Grain-Free Chicken Nuggets

(This post contains affiliate links. Any purchases you make through my links will provide me with a small commission at no extra charge to you. Thank you for your support!  See my disclosure policy here.)

Lazy Grain-Free Chicken Nuggets

I don’t remember when chicken nuggets first came on the scene, but I think the first nuggets I had were at McDonalds years ago. I thought they were pretty wonderful, especially dipped in honey-mustard sauce.

Lazy Grain-Free Chicken Nuggets

Since going gluten-free and following Trim Healthy Mama, I need to make this family favorite from scratch.  I call these lazy chicken nuggets because there are days, probably more often than not, that I don’t want to have to do much to get supper on the table.

So, instead of dipping the little chicken pieces in eggs and then picking each one out and then dredging them in the batter, I just pour the eggs on the chicken and then pour the breading over it all. Give it a stir and then get them to frying. The hardest part of this recipe is cutting the chicken breasts into pieces.

I use red palm oil in this recipe, because I think it adds a wonderful flavor and a lovely golden color to your food. If you don’t have any feel free to use coconut oil only.

Lazy Grain-Free Chicken Nuggets
  • Author: MamaShire
  • Yield: 5 servings
  • Category: Dinner

Ingredients

  • 3 chicken breasts
  • 2 whole eggs, or 2 egg yolks (only if you already have some separated), whisked with a fork
  • 1/2 cup flaxmeal
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon mineral salt
  • 4 tablespoons red palm oil
  • 3 tablespoon coconut oil

Instructions

  1. Cut chicken breasts in 1 to 2 inch pieces.
  2. Begin heating skillet with red palm oil and coconut oil over medium heat.
  3. Place chicken breasts in pie pan or other shallow dish.
  4. Pour eggs over chicken and stir around with a fork, making sure that the egg covers the chicken pieces.
  5. In a small bowl mix flaxmeal, coconut flour, spices, and salt together. Spread over chicken. Stir chicken around to coat with the breading.
  6. Once the oil in the skillet is hot, carefully place chicken in skillet without crowding too much. If all the chicken doesn’t fit in the skillet you may need to fry a second batch, if so add a little more oil to the pan before frying the second batch. Or use 2 skillets at the same time.
  7. Turn after 4-5 minutes and continue frying on other side another 4-5 minutes or until golden brown.

Spice Cake (Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Sugar-Free)

Spice Cake - Gluten-Free Recipe by MamaShire

(Some links in this post may be my affiliate links which means I earn a percentage, at no cost to you, when you purchase. See my disclosure policy here.)

Happy fall, everyone! It’s such a wonderful time of the year. We’re bringing out our sweaters, the trees are beginning to change colors, the fields are turning all golden as harvest time is fast approaching. Early mornings are crisp and cool. I love it all. And then there is the baking.

Spice Cake - Gluten-Free Recipe by MamaShire

One of my husband’s favorite cakes is spice cake. I remember when I first made him one, I had searched high and low over all those boxed cake mixes in the grocery store trying to find the right one. Brought it home and baked it up. He loved it. It made me happy to make him happy. Isn’t that what baking is all about?

Spice Cake - Gluten-Free Recipe by MamaShire

Since that time a few things have changed. When our family went gluten-free, I made a list of our favorite foods and began a mission to replace those recipes with ingredients that we could eat. Spice cake was on that list! I love that this cake is not only gluten free but grain-free too!

You can frost your cake with my Vanilla Frosting Recipe or with your favorite recipe. This cake fits wonderfully on the Trim Healthy Mama plan and is an “S”.

One-Pan Jamaican Jerk Chicken & “Rice” – Easy Keto Dinners Review

Easy to make One-Pan Jamaican Jerk Chicken & “Rice” from Easy Keto Dinners by Carolyn Ketchum! Keto, Low-carb, Gluten-free, Dairy-free, THM-S

Jamaican Jerk Chicken with cauliflower rice and lime wedges.

(Some links in this post are affiliate links which means I earn a percentage, at no cost to you, when you purchase. See my disclosure policy here.) *I did receive this Easy Keto Dinner Cookbook for free. All views are my own!

Jamaican Jerk Chicken & "Rice" served with lime wedges!

This easy to make dinner recipe is from Carolyn Ketchum’s brand new cookbook Easy Keto Dinners! It’s coming out in just a few days and is available for pre-order now!

I’ve been having so much fun looking through this cookbook and trying to decide what I wanted to make first!

Picture of Carolyn Ketchum's cookbook, Easy Keto Dinners.

Carolyn was so kind to let me share one of her recipes with you!

I decided to go with Jamaican Jerk Chicken & “Rice” because I used to use a store-bought Jamaican Jerk marinade for my chicken before our family went gluten free.  And I hadn’t tried to recreate that flavor so I was excited to try Carolyn’s recipe for the Jamaican Jerk seasoning!

One-pot Jamaican Jerk Chicken & "Rice" Dinner in a cast iron skillet.

I loved that this recipe was easy to make and I used only one pan! To make prep time even easier I used frozen diced onions and frozen riced cauliflower.

All the recipes in Carolyn’s new cookbook look to be very easy to make and look so good – there’s a picture for every recipe! A few of the other recipes I’m looking forward to trying are Buffalo Chicken Chowder, French Onion Pot Roast, and Bacon Sloppy Joes.

About half of the recipes in Easy Keto Dinners are dairy free! That’s really important for me as my family and cow-dairy just don’t get along well.

When I shared this with my daughter, she loved it and wanted to know where the recipe was because she didn’t want to ever lose it! She also told me she wanted to have this weekly! Well, okay then! We gave this recipe and the whole book a 2 thumbs up!

  • Category: Dinner
  • Method: Stove top

Ingredients

Jerk Seasoning

1 1/2 teaspoons erythritol
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme leaves

1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

4 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs
2 tablespoons avocado oil, for the pan
1/4 cup chopped onions
12 ounces riced cauliflower
Lime wedges, for serving

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375° F.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the ingredients for the jerk seasoning. Rub the seasoning blend all over the chicken.

  4. Remove the chicken to a plate and add the onions to the skillet. Saute until translucent, about 4 minutes. Add the riced cauliflower and cook until just tender, another 4 minutes.
  5. Return the chicken to the skillet, skin side up, and transfer the skillet to the oven. Bake for 20 minutes, or until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165°F. Serve with lime wedges.

Don’t skip the lime wedges! The lime juice pairs perfectly with the seasoning and adds a delicious zing to this dish!

Easy Easter Egg Wreath

Easy to make Easter Egg Wreath with spring flower garland and painted paper mache eggs.

An adorable homemade Easter Egg Wreath

(Some links in this post are affiliate links which means I earn a percentage, at no cost to you, when you purchase. See my disclosure policy here.)

Supplies to make an Easy Easter Egg Wreath. Grapevine wreath, paint, eggs, flowers.

This wreath came together quickly and I’m really loving all the happy spring colors!

I was able to get all the supplies for this at JoAnn Craft & Fabric Store and Hobby Lobby. I would imagine these supplies could be found in most craft stores. If you don’t have a craft store close by or prefer to shop online, I have links below for several of the items on Amazon.

Supplies needed to make this Easy Easter Egg Wreath:

grapevine wreath
flower garland or flower sprigs
paper mache eggs
acrylic paint in spring colors – I used DecoArt Americana – Blue Haven, Poodleskirt Pink, Banana Cream, Light Lime, and Light Orchid (I added a little of the blue to get this a deeper purple)
sponge brush
glue gun
glue sticks
needle nose wire cutters
freezer paper to protect your surface
plastic plate for paint
little applesauce cups or something similar

 

Painting eggs for an Easter Wreath

Step 1. Paint the paper mache eggs using a foam brush in your favorite spring colors. A plastic plate works really well as a palate for the paint. Pour out about the size of a quarter of the paint to start with. It doesn’t take much paint to cover an egg.

Painting a paper mache egg.

Paint all around the sides of the egg and then place them in a little applesauce cup to dry. The cup holds them up better to dry and the egg shouldn’t stick to the cup.

Painted paper mache eggs.

After the sides are dry, go back and paint the ends. One coat should be enough.
You can always mix a little of your paints to get another shade if needed. The purple that I picked looked a little too pink, so I added a bit of the blue to make it a stronger purple color.

Grapevine wreath with a sprig of flowers.

2. Use wire cutters to cut the garland in small sections.

Fluff the sections of garlands out to give it a fuller look.

Before gluing down the sections to the wreath, place the flowers on the wreath to get a feel for how you want them placed.

Assembling the wreath with flowers.

Once you know how you want your flowers placed, begin gluing down your flower sections. Glue the base of the section and a few leaves, but leave the majority of it unglued. That way it will look fuller.

Grapevine wreath with flowers.

You may need to cut a few sections of the flowers into smaller pieces to help fill out the wreath.

Look for any areas that may need some extra flowers to fill it out.

Spreading out the flowers over the grapevine wreath.

After you have all the flower pieces glued on, fluff out any flowers or leaves that need to freshened up.

Placing the painted eggs on the Easter Wreath.

3. Before gluing the eggs, place them around the wreath to see where you want them placed. Once they are where you want them glue down one egg at a time. You can add a little extra glue to any area the needs to be more secure.

Pretty spring wreath with flowers and painted paper mache eggs.

Yay! It all finished and ready to hang!

Easy one pot dinner of easy homemade hamburger helper - Taco version

Years ago, I would use a lot of boxed mixes. They were easy and there was usually coupons for them making this type of meal very inexpensive.

One day when I was having my daughters help me with supper I told them to just read the box to know how to make it. It hit me that day, that I needed to teach them more about cooking with real ingredients and not just purchased mixes.

Later when we had to switch to eating gluten and dairy free it was a blessing that we had already begun cooking with whole foods as it made the transition easier. Don’t get me wrong, it was still hard, but I think overall it helped that transition to make more sense.

These two easy homemade hamburger helper variations are so easy to make! Yes, it does called for a couple of packaged short cuts, but they are still healthy options to make supper come together quickly and inexpensively!

One ingredient you might not be used to using is nutritional yeast. It’s fairly inexpensive and gives food a wonderful cheesy flavor. I use it in a lot of my recipes. It’s also a good source of B vitamins.

If you are following Trim Healthy Mama these meals are an S. If you prefer you can rinse the ground beef with hot water and they would be an FP meal.

Free Embroidery Pattern for Spring – Hello Spwing!

Free Embroidery Pattern for Spring - Hello Spwing!

Introducing my new free embroidery pattern for spring! It’s called Hello, Spwing! and features this adorable little duckling holding a fresh spring blossom and telling the world “Hello Spwing” in his little quacky voice.

This design will fit inside a 5″ embroidery hoop but this sweet little duckling would also look adorable on a tea towel or a pillow.

(Some links in this post are affiliate links which means I earn a percentage, at no cost to you, when you purchase. See my disclosure policy here.)

Supply list for making the Hello, Spwing! embroidery:

muslin or quilt cotton fabric
Cricut Bright Pad or you can tape up on a window
Sakura Pigma Micron 005 (black) to trace design on fabric
DMC embroidery floss
5″ embroidery hoop
scissors
embroidery needle
PDF of Hello, Spwing! in my free resource library. You can get the password at the bottom of this post.

Cricut Bright Pad with free embroidery pattern

Place the printed PDF of the embroidery pattern on top of the Bright Pad (lightbox) and then place the fabric over the PDF. You can use a little tape to hold everything in place while you trace the design.

Sakura Pigma Micron 005 pen for tracing embroidery pattern.

I like to use the Sakura Pigma Micron 005 pen because it has a very fine tip and doesn’t bleed. You can find them on Amazon, craft stores, and office supply stores.

Bright Pad and free embroidery pattern with fabric.

This is with the light on the Bright Pad so that you can see how easy it is to trace the design onto the fabric. If you don’t have a Bright Pad you can tape the PDF to a window and then tape the fabric over the PDF to trace.

Cute little free embroidery pattern for spring.

After tracing the design onto the fabric, place a second layer of fabric behind it and then put both layers of fabric into the embroidery hoop. This way you are stitching through two layers of fabric. (I think it helps to keep the thread on the back from showing through on the front side. This is optional, it’s just my preferred way to do it.)

Embroidery hoop with free embroidery pattern for spring.

After you finish stitching, place the design in the center of the hoop and lightly pull the fabric taut as you tighten the screw to secure the fabric.  Measure the fabric out from the hoop about 1 1/2 – 2 inches all the way around and trim off the excess fabric.

Embroidery hoop back with fabric pulled tight.

Take your needle and a long piece of thread about 18-24 inches long with the tail knotted, begin stitching a straight stitch about 1/4″ to 1/2″ from the edge of the fabric. Draw the fabric tight and tie off the thread.

Adorable free embroidery pattern for spring.

It’s all finished!

(If you like you can slip stitch or use a blanket stitch to attach a piece of felt on the back to cover where the fabric was pulled together. This is optional.)
