Making Orange Scream Pie with TruMoo Orange Scream Flavored Milk

This post brought to you by TruMoo. All opinions are 100% mine.

Halloween is my favorite time of year to begin baking and preparing for the cold season ahead. Also, heading into my 2nd trimester of pregnancy  gives me more reasons for snacking! Since we love our pies around here, I thought a great way to use the new limited edition TruMoo Orange Flavored Milk would be to make a pie.

My mother-in-law makes a mean coconut cream pie, so this recipe is based upon that one. You could always alter this one for use with straight up milk if you completely run out of TruMoo.

I began by baking a pre-made pie crust. You can make your own of course, but for simplicity's sake I decided it would be best to use a frozen one. 

I got out my simple ingredients – sugar, salt, cornstarch and  evaporated milk and TruMoo Orange Scream Flavored Milk. I also needed 6 eggs, and I seperated the yolks and whites in seperate bowls.

In a large 4 cup measuring cup, I emptied the contents of 1 can of evaporated milk. Using the TruMoo Orange Scream, I filled the rest of the cup to the 4 cup mark. Wisk together with the sugar, salt & cornstarch in a microwave safe bowl and microwave on high for 5 minutes.

Once it comes out of the microwave, beat with a wisk. I used the beater attachment on my kitchen aid mixer because of the strong, sturdy ooomph it provides. It will foam up, and this is where you take 3/4 cup from the mixture and set it aside. Put the rest back into the microwave for 2 minutes.

In the meantime, beat the egg yoiks, and temper the egg mixture with the hot milk. keep beating it until the rest gets out of the microwave and add it in. continue to beat on high in the mixer.

Once it foams up nicely again, stop beating and return it to the microwave for 5 minutes, stoping halfway to beat it. Be careful not to overcook it! Add in your vanilla and 1 tablespoon of butter.

Let it cool, and then pour it into your baked pie crust dish! Decorate how you would like – I thought whipped cream and pumpkins would make for a happy halloween!

Making a healthy, kid friendly fritata with Simply Potatoes

This post brought to you by Simply Potatoes. All opinions are 100% mine.

Ever think of having breakfast for dinner? Lately, I've been doing it alot because a) we like it b) its an easy prep and c) it can be a healthy and nutritious meal for the entire family. JP loves it, and it's a great way for him to get some nutrition in him without him realizing. One of my personal favorites is the fritata – its basically a potato and egg omelet with anything else you want to add in – one of those blank canvas dishes. 

I like to use Simply Potatoes because instead of peeling and cutting up potatoes, these are already prepped and ready to go! I've seen fritatas made with bell peppers and onions, but in the interest of keeping it kid-friendly, I've decided to only use eggs and potatoes for my picky eater. 

First, I brown the potatoes in the pan with a little bit of vegetable oil on medium-high heat. Once they are are halfway cooked, I remove them from the pan and place them aside. 

In a seperate bowl, I wisk together 6 eggs with salt and pepper to taste. Normally, you would just combine it in the pan with the potatoes until the egg cooks through, but I decided to make small personal sized ones. JP is so much more likely to eat all his food when I serve him dishes like this – so it's worth the extra work.

I use a little tool called an egg ring that looks like a round cookie cutter you cook your egg in so the whites stay perfectly round with the yolk perfectly centered – I love it! I placed some of the half cooked Simply Potatoes in it and filled it in with the egg mixture and continued to cook on a medium heat. Not too hot because you'll burn the eggs before they're fully cooked, so be careful! Had some spillage, but that's ok – you can just scrape it away easily as it cooks.

Let it sit and cook for 3-5 minutes and then gently remove the ring and flip! Let the other side cook for a few minutes and then remove it from the heat and serve. JP loves eating this with a side of ketchup – yep, ketchup counts as a vegetable in our house!

Dishes like this are my favorite because they're easy to prepare for any time of the day, they make a super easy weeknight meal and best of all – nutritious and delicious for JP!

Simple, easy and wholesome dinner options with Butterball Turkey Burgers

This post brought to you by Butterball Every Day. All opinions are 100% mine.

As most moms, I'm all for trying something new and easy to feed my crew and grilling out is one of our favorite things to do. It's particularly MY favorite way of making dinner simply because 1) I don't mess up my kitchen 2) its easy and 3) it's a crowd pleaser – so it's win-win all around. 

Because of new dietary restrictions in our household, I've had to come up with some creative new ways to make tasty, wholesome meals that fall right in line with the doctor's orders. You see, my husband has been diagnosed with cyclic vomitng syndrome otherwise known as CVS and over the course of the summer it's been a rough ride for all of us – especially him.  As it turns out, there's only a handful of foods that he can eat as to not aggravate his condition and wind up sick. White meats such as turkey, chicken and fish are at the top of the list as protein sources. 

Aside from being served on the Thanksgiving dinner table, turkey has never been huge in our house until I grilled it over charcoal briquets! I thought it would add an extra layer of flavor to have the yummy mesquite taste infused into each bite – and I was right! It totally transformed the taste and put the turkey burger on a whole new level.

So easy to prepare – these burgers come pre-formed and frozen, so all you have to do is put them on the grill and cook! 

After about 8-10 minutes grilling each side (or until each side was nicely browned and looked cooked) I took them off the grill and let them sit for a few minutes while I sliced up some fresh veggies to dress it up. I'm telling you – the secret is charcoal!! 

I served mine up with a side of roasted potatoes that I made in my new oil-less fryer – it's the best 100$ I ever spent!
