Peanut Butter Cheesecake Bites (THM-S)

PBCCB

I LOVE peanut butter!. You offer me anything with peanut butter in it, and I will most definitely eat it! It’s quite ridiculous the amount of peanut butter I go through in a month, but oh so yummy!!

These Peanut Butter Cheesecake Bites are simply divine! You can eat up to four of these little guys in one sitting to keep within the Trim Healthy Mama S guidelines; but good luck! They are so addicting! This was the first THM dessert I ever made and was hooked from the beginning, as was my husband and toddler! So without further delay, I give you……

Taco Soup (THM – S)

Taco Soup

This is one of the first THM recipes I made. It is also one of my favourites. Perhaps that is why I got so hooked on Trim Healthy Mama in the first place. This Taco Soup recipe is one of my go-to comfort foods (especially in the cold winter months) and a quick and easy meal to make for Sunday Lunch. Another great thing about this recipe is that you can make in only one pot; this makes things nice and simple. It is easily adjusted to cater to your family’s needs. For those who do not follow THM, I add in some cooked macaroni noodles and serve with a piece of garlic toast ๐Ÿ™‚

Taco Soup
THM – S

1 pound Ground Beef
1 Onion
2 cloves Garlic
1 Tbsp Cumin
1/2 Tbsp Oregano
1 tsp Chili Powder
1/2 tsp Basil
1/2 tsp Parsley
Salt + Pepper to taste
4 oz Cream Cheese
1 28oz can Diced Tomatoes
3 cups Beef Broth
1/2 cup Heavy Cream

In a large pot, cook onion and garlic over medium heat until soft (I usually add a little bit of water to prevent sticking and burning). Add the ground beef and cook through. Add in the spices. Reduce heat to medium-low. Slice up the cream cheese so that it melts evenly and add to the pan. Once the cheese has melted, add in the tomatoes, broth, and cream. Stir until heated through. Can serve with shredded cheese and sour cream ๐Ÿ™‚

This recipe also tastes really good with a can of black beans. (this makes it a crossover)
