My dear friends H.L. Carpenter just released a new cozy mystery titled, “A Cause For Murder: An Emma Twiggs Mystery”.

As part of their release tour a fellow author and friend, Sloane Taylor, posted one of the Carpenter’s most delicious recipes. You can see the original recipe here.

I know you’re foodies, and you may be wondering why I haven’t shown you how the Carpenter’s inspired me to make the most delicious crumble I’ve ever made. There’s a good reason – the Cozy Mystery genre. Cozy Mysteries often feature our favorite subject – food. For example, there’s a character in “A Cause For Murder” who tries his baking attempts out on our Emma. Sweet soul that she is, she is kind to him. He needs this recipe!

Fiesta Friday goers are going to love this

Made with freeze-dried strawberry slices and diced pears.

IMAG0044

I admit that I’m a cheater who plays it safe. My strawberries will never grow mold before I use them. I didn’t spend time washing or chopping the fruit. I simply measured and refreshed with water.

IMAG0045

Here’s my recipe:

1 1/4 Thrive Life strawberry slices, refreshed

3/4 Thrive Life diced pears, refreshed

1/8 tsp. Thrive Life Classic Lemonade powder

1/2 C. water

Combine the strawberries, pears, lemonade powder and water in a bowl. Refresh for at least 10 minutes while you make the crumble topping.

3 Tbsp. coconut sugar

2 Tbsp. Thrive Life Quick Oats

2 Tbsp. pecan pieces, chopped

2 Tbsp. gluten-free flour

1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice

1 Tbsp. butter

Measure the sugar, oats, pecan pieces, gluten-free flour and pumpkin pie spice into a plastic bag. Shake to mix. Your little ones will like helping with this part. Add the tablespoon of butter and then close the bag. Knead the butter in until the topping looks like loose crumbs.

Bake It

Preheat the oven to 350 F.

Butter the bottom of a glass baking dish.

Add the fruit mixture, then the crumble mixture.

Bake for 20 minutes or until the fruit is cooked.

December Specials

 

Why I Eat Thrive

I’ve been asked this question several times in the last two weeks. It’s compelling to think about why a Holistic Health Consultant with eleven years in the business would choose to eat freeze-dried food.
My top five reasons why I continue to eat Thrive foods for as much of my diet as I can:
1. Superior nutrition due to picking the produce at the harvest peak, fast processing and flash freezing. There is a little known fact that when you are truly nourished, you eat less, making Thrive much more affordable than it appears to be if compared to lower quality produce that suffers from nutrient loss and leaves us feeling hungry soon after we eat it.
2. Keeping a variety of fruits and vegetables on hand at all times, including for emergency storage. Since Thrive has a good shelf life after it’s opened, I can keep as many choices as I want in my pantry. I’m eating a lot more fruits and vegetables than I was before Thrive.
3. I cured my 3:00 crash with Thrive. I used to have a slump between lunch and dinner that would send me to the kitchen for snacks to make it through the workday. With Thrive, I don’t have the slump or need the snacks because I’m nourished.
4. Our foods are mostly free of GMOs. I want to promote heritage farming as much as I can, and I want to eat food that is not genetically modified.
5. No pesticides. This means so much to me, for my health, my family’s health and the health of our farmers and their employees. I’m glad they’re not being exposed to pesticides!

Which one of these benefits would you like for yourself?
