Peachy Blueberry Icebox Cake / #FarmersMarket

As we continue to pay tribute to #FarmersMarketWeek I thought it might be fun to revisit an oldie but a goodie when it comes to summertime desserts~Peachy Blueberry Icebox Cake! If you haven't had the pleasure to enjoy a taste of this yummy iconic summer pleasure, give it a try! 

This cake is very easy to put together. If you want to make it easier, you can use store bought whipped cream instead of making it from scratch. You can also use the regular size vanilla wafers to decorate the cake, if you don't have any mini's. Either way, it will be amazing!


Peachy Blueberry Icebox Cake
(printable recipe at end of page) 
(Serves 4)


30-40 Nilla Wafers
5-6 Mini Nilla Wafers
3 cups Whipping Cream
3-4 teaspoons Sugar
1 teaspoon Vanilla
2-3 Fresh Peaches, yellow and white
1 cup Blueberries



Line pan with plastic, overlapping edges as shown. We are making this cake upside down. Cut a piece big enough to cover the bottom and the longer sides and hang over 6"-7" on each side. Cut the same size pieces for the shorter sides of the pan. Smooth the insides a little bit, then let the plastic hang to the sides.

Whip whipping cream on high until it thickens into cream. Add sugar 1 teaspoon at a time, mixing after each addition, tasting to make sure another teaspoon is necessary. Add vanilla while mixing.
 
Peel and cut your fruit. Cut the peaches into bite sized pieces.


 Place your first layer of cookies in the pan. Cut one of the cookies in half to cover the entire bottom. Even though it is not pictured here, you will be placing the cookies on top of the plastic that we just cut and placed in the bottom of the pan.
  
On top of the cookies place a layer of whipped cream. Spread it evenly over the cookies. Mix together the yellow and white peach pieces. Place the cut peaches on top of the whipped cream. Add blueberries to the layer. 

Add another layer of cookies, whipped cream, peaches and blueberries.

Add the final layer of cookies, whipped cream, peaches and blueberries. Fold the plastic over the pan and refrigerate overnight.



Remove from freezer and unfold the plastic from the top of the pan. Place the plate you want to put the cake on upside down on the cake. Carefully flip the cake over onto the plate. Remove your pan. Carefully remove the plastic from what is now the top of your cake. 

Cover the top of the cake with whipped cream. Garnish with more blueberries and peaches. Stick some of the mini cookies into the whipped cream. You could also sprinkle the top with crushed vanilla wafers for a great taste too! 


Slice and enjoy!

Mushroom Ceviche / #FarmersMarketWeek


I am so glad you stopped by to celebrate #FarmersMarketWeek with me! On my last trip to my local farmers market it was set up so that the vendors lined up their produce along a route that was driven by the customer and you picked out your produce from your car. I loved it because it was easy and safe. So I picked up some fresh veggies along with lemons and limes, and of course some shrimp, to make this very tasty Mushroom Ceviche, but with a twist! Traditionally, ceviche is made with raw shrimp, letting the acidity from the lemons and limes to "cook" the shrimp, but today I started out with cooked shrimp and added mushrooms just to mix it up a bit! It was a huge hit, that I know you will love!


Mushroom Ceviche
(printable recipe at end of page)
(feeds 8-10 as an appetizer)

1/2 pound White Whole Mushrooms
1 tablespoon Butter
1 pound cooked Shrimp
1 diced Celery Stalk
1/2 cup Red Onion  
1 Jalapeno Pepper
2 Roma Tomatoes 
3 fresh lemons
4 limes
Hot Sauce
1/2 Avocado



Chop the mushrooms into small pieces, saute in butter. When they are done, remove from pan and set aside.

Chop the shrimp, celery, red onion, jalapeno pepper and tomatoes into small bite sized pieces.

Squeeze the fresh lemons and limes into a bowl. This is a difficult thing for me to do because I have arthritis in both of my hands, and although some days are better than others, they always hurt. So here is a tip if this is a problem for you: take a heavy plate from the kitchen and use the bottom of the plate to put pressure on the fruit, moving the fruit around the counter, loosening the juice and whatever is inside. When you are done, the juice flows out easily! (Just a little trick if you need it!) Then slice the lemon and lime in half and squeeze the juice out into a bowl.


Mix the mushrooms, shrimp, celery, red onion, jalapeno pepper and tomatoes in a large bowl. Add the juice from the lemons and limes. 

 After 30 minutes, drain the juice from the bowl. Add the hot sauce and stir. Cover and place in the fridge, then take out about 10 minutes before serving. Chop avocado and place on top of bowl.
Serve with pita chips or your favorite chips or crackers.

Grilled Double Cherry Naan Bread Dessert / #FarmersMarketWeek


Welcome to #FarmersMarketWeek! I am so glad you are here! This week I am joining my fellow bloggers in making and sharing some wonderful and delicious recipes using products found at your local farmers market. I love the farmers market for their fresh and delicious  fruit! Have you ever bought fruit at a Farmers Market? I found both Rainier cherries and Bing cherries the last time I was there, and they smelled so incredible, I had to make them mine! Later that day I stopped at the grocery, picked up a package of Naan Bread and the result is the recipe below! I hope you enjoy these Grilled Double Cherry Naan Bread Desserts!

Grilled Double Cherry Naan Bread Dessert 
(makes 4 desserts)
(printable recipe at end of page)

1/2 pound fresh Bing Cherries
1/2 pound fresh Rainier Cherries
8 ounce Cream Cheese, softened
4 tablespoons Sour Cream
4 pieces of Naan Bread
1/4 pound Milk Chocolate



Wash the Bing cherries, and pit each one. Chop the cherries in half, and chop some of them in quarters. This gives the cherries an eye catching presentation, and makes this dessert easy to eat.


Do the same with the Rainier cherries.

Make the sauce by mixing together the softened cream cheese and the sour cream. Blend with a mixer to get a smooth finish. 

Grill the naan breads on the grill. The grill flavor on the bread is awesome, and it lends some crispiness to the finish product. Flip the bread over twice on each side.

Melt the chocolate in a double boiler or microwave. Now let's put it all together: Spread the sauce over the grilled breads. Add the cherries, distributing them evenly on the bread. Drizzle the chocolate over the top. Enjoy!


 There are a lot of blogging friends joining in today and the rest of the week, to share their #FarmersMarketWeek recipes! Check through the list below for today's scrumptious ideas!

Fun Orange Freak Shake / #FarmersMarketWeek

Today is the last day of #FarmersMarketWeek, and I thought I would end the week with a tasty cold dessert, a Fun Orange Freak Shake! I made this shake with fresh oranges that I picked up at the farmers market. It takes a little bit longer to use the fresh oranges instead of orange juice or orange soda, but the fresh taste is worth it! I hope you think so too!
Fun Orange Freak Shake
(makes 1 shake)
(printable recipe at end of page)

6 Fresh Oranges
1/2 cup Heavy Duty Whipping Cream
3 tablespoons Granulated Sugar
1 teaspoon Vanilla
3-4 ounces of White Chocolate 
Sprinkles
1/4 - 1/2 Milk
1/4 -1/2 gallon Ice Cream

Peel the oranges, separate the sections, and place in a blender. Pulse until they are liquid.
Pour orange juice through a strainer into a bowl. Throw away the orange pieces in the strainer. Make the whipped cream by mixing together the granulated sugar, heavy duty whipping cream and vanilla. Place the whipped cream in a pastry bag using a size 1M. Refrigerate until ready to use.
 Melt the white chocolate. Once melted, dip the top of your jar or glass into the chocolate. Sprinkle the decorative sprinkles over the chocolate. Freeze or refrigerate.
Mix together the strained orange juice, milk and ice cream. I left some chunks of ice cream in my shake because that is how I like it, but if you like it smooth and creamy, make it smooth and creamy.
 Pour milk shake into jar. Add whipped cream to the top.
Decorate with various candies and sprinkles!
