Announcing more FABULOUS recipes!

You asked…

During the Harvest giveaway, quite a few of you asked for more recipes here on the blog.  And I have to be honest: I love cooking with this stuff, but coming up with original recipes is TOUGH for me!  I’m totally comfortable adding it here and there to my existing recipes.  In fact, I use something THRIVE food in almost every meal.  But completely original, new recipes created by me are TOUGH to come up with.  Just not my talent (I can be honest here, right?).


Introducing Lindsey Mote:Lindsey Mote

Luckily, I know someone who does have that talent!  Her name is Lindsey Mote from Why Just Eat When You Can THRIVE?  I’ve been following her blog for months now and I keep expecting her to slow down, run out of ideas, or post something non-original, but she never does!  Each week, she comes up with incredible new, original recipes that she makes from THRIVE.  The best part is that she is a mom, and she is making these things for her family, so they are simple.  Anyone can make them, but they are FABULOUS!  Seriously incredible.  I’ve never made one of her recipes that I didn’t like.  You can learn more about her on her blog.


Twice the Recipes:

And guess what?  Lindsey has graciously agreed to partner up with me in bringing some extra fabulous recipes to YOU, my readers, right here at Your Own Home Store.  In addition to the recipes I post on Tuesdays, Lindsey will join us each Saturday,  with another fabulous creation she has developed from THRIVE foods!  I am so thrilled to get to work with her!  Expect to see a great big ad for her blog going up in my sidebar soon.  I highly encourage all of you to click on it regularly to find even more great recipes you can make with your THRIVE foods!


Here is the first of many more great recipes to come!  I made this with a bunch of “fruit powders” I had at the bottom of a bunch of cans yesterday and spread it over toast.  It was fabulous.  Thanks Lindsey!

Mixed Fruit Jam

Hi, Lindsey here from Why Just Eat When You Can THRIVE?? I’m so excited that Misty has invited me to share my recipes with her readers! I hope that you enjoy making these recipes as much as I have. Feel free to make suggestions, ask questions and share your idea. I promise I’ll read each and every comment!

What you need:

What to do:

  • Combine berries, apples, pineapple, sweetener and water in a medium sized saucepan over medium heat.
  • Bring to a gentle boil, stirring continuously, and continue to cook until all fruits are soft. The longer you cook it, the smoother your jam will be.
  • If you want a very smooth jam, transfer carefully to a blender or food processor and puree. If you prefer a chunkier product, skip this step.
  • Store in an air tight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.


This is a great way to use the powder left over in the bottom of your fruit cans. The end product will be more like a jelly than a jam when using powders, but still every bit as delicious!
