Grilled Fruit Tortilla Rollups/#Farmer's Market Week

Because desserts are one of my favorite things, I thought I would end #FarmersMarketWeek on a sweet note with these Grilled Fruit Tortilla Rollups! They are easy to make and full of flavor. Plus, they can be put together easily and quickly. They are perfect for snacks, picnics or a light summer dessert.

Grilled Fruit Tortilla Rollups:
(makes 2 rollups)
(printable recipe at end of page)

1 dozen Fresh Blueberries
1 Banana
Fresh Pineapple Chunks
1 Peach
2 Flour Tortillas
3 ounces Milk Chocolate Squares
2-3 tbl Heavy Duty Whipping Cream(for melting chocolate in pan)
1 cup Heavy Duty Whipping Cream  (for making Cinnamon Cream)
1/2 teaspoon ground Cinnamon
3 teaspoon Sugar
melted Chocolate (for plate and top of tortilla)






These tasty treats start with a flour tortilla and are filled with blueberries, a couple slices of banana, some pineapple, and a few peach slices. Of course I had to add some small chunks of chocolate too!

Heat the grill to medium high heat. Roll up the tortillas and secure with a toothpick.





Turn the tortillas to mark them with grill marks.                                     





Once the marks have been made, remove the tortillas from the grill. 





Use a frying pan to melt the chocolate squares and heat the cream.

Once the chocolate is melted, combine the cream and chocolate together and stir until completely combined. Set aside to use for drizzle over the finished tortillas.


Pour the heavy whipping cream into a medium mixing bowl. Add the cinnamon to the bowl, along with the sugar. Mix until thick and creamy.


Put your plates together! Swirl some chocolate onto the middle of a plate. The plate I used is a 6 1/2" x 6 1/2" square. I used it sideways, just to create a different look. Place the 2 finished tortillas on the plate and garnish with the same fruits you put inside the tortilla. Drizzle some chocolate on top of the tortillas, and then top with a small scoop of the cinnamon whipped cream. Garnish with a few more blueberries! Enjoy this fun to make and fun to eat dessert.

Summer Berry Charcuterie Board / #BerryWeek

 Today is the last day of #BerryWeek! It has been such fun with so many berry recipes to share. My list of ones I want to try has gotten longer with each day! If you missed any of them, you might want to check out the recipe I shared Monday, Summer Berry Salsa. This recipe is a great way to enjoy several berries at a time, in one recipe! If you are a fan of easy to make pastry, you will want to bake up some of my Blueberry Breakfast Pastries, which I shared on Wednesday.  The pastry cream is homemade and the pastry is store bought dough, cutting down on the time it takes to put it all together, but not the taste.

With the fun and tasty #BerryWeek coming to an end, I want to share my Summer Berry Charcuterie Board with you.  If you have ever made a charcuterie board, you know how much fun it is to put them together. It takes thought and creativity to design the perfect board, and it also takes time to collect the items you need for the board, but it is all worth it. In the end, the board looks like an art project, too pretty to eat, but that won't last long! The main objective is to have fun and create something your family and friends will enjoy!

Summer Berry Charcuterie Board 
(serves 3-4 )
(printable recipe at end of page)
Ingredients: 
Fresh Summer Berries:
Strawberries
Raspberries
Blueberries
Blackberries
Chocolate Candy Pieces
Mini Chocolate Cookies
Chocolate Cookie Brittle
Cashews
Creme de Pirouline Dark Chocolate Rolled Wafers
Sauce:
1/2 cup Cream Cheese, softened
1 cup Whipped Topping
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract 

Start by placing fruit on your tray. You want it to look visibly appealing to the eye. When it is fruit you are dealing with, it seems like all the colors go together quite well. Stack your fruit up a bit, as if they are in piles. By stacking them you are creating height, making them visually appealing. You are basically creating a pretty picture that your guests can not resist!

Add different textures to your canvas. The nuts are perfect because they are such an opposite to the softness of the fruit. Your guests will love both textures. The chocolate brittle adds double chocolate flavor, which most guests love! Let's face it. It is difficult to walk past chocolate and not want to grab a bite! The chocolate brittle also adds a hard texture against the fruit.

Red and blue go so well together that I had to put them side by side. The blueberries are soft and juicy and the fresh strawberries with their green stems just create it's own little picture. I used the chocolate cookies as a border to contrast the softness of the fruit. 

These rolled wafers are a great addition to the board because they create height. They direct our gaze to move up from the plate, resulting in your guests taking in the entire picture. 

Every board needs a dip or two. Because this board is on the small side, I thought one would be enough. This dip is super easy to make with only three ready made ingredients. Soften the cream cheese, mix in the frozen dessert topping and add the vanilla! Refrigerate before serving!

This is one way to put together a charcuterie tray. It can be difficult to take the first step in designing your tray. Once you decide on a theme or a certain item you are serving, it will fall into place. I will admit, I spent a lot of time walking around a couple stores trying to buy the items for this board, but after I did, the ideas came rushing into my mind, making a clear path for my end result. This will happen to you also.  Besides, there is no wrong way to create a Summer Berry Charcuterie Board. If you are happy with it, then it is right. Have fun with it!

Cherry and Peach Galette / #FarmersMarketWeek

This Cherry and Peach Galette is so much fun to make and eat! If you haven't ever had one before, you will be surprised at how easy it is to make. I used a store bought pie crust, which makes the Galette even easier, but a homemade crust can be used also! The beauty of the Galette is it's rustic look. You never have to worry about it looking perfect like you might a pie crust, and the fruit is definitely the star of the show with this dessert!

Cherry and Peach Galette 
(printable recipe at end of page)

1 pound Fresh Bing Cherries
4 small Fresh Peaches 
1/2 pound Fresh Blueberries
2 tablespoons Sugar
2 tablespoons Flour
9" round Pie Dough
Coarse Sugar
Powdered Sugar


Wash, pull off the stems, and pit the cherries. I used Bing cherries for the most part, but I had a few Rainier Cherries left over from another recipe, so I used those also. Place in a large bowl.
Wash and pull off the stems of the blueberries. Add to the bowl of fruit.
Mix in the sugar and flour with a spoon.
Place fruit into the center of the pie dough. Pile up the center higher than the edge of the circle. You will have a little fruit left over, but I know it won't go to waste! Use the leftover for topping ice cream or making a smoothie! Start bringing the dough up like in the picture. Pinch and fold the dough to the side. Sprinkle the dough with coarse sugar.
Place Galette on a baking sheet that is covered with parchment paper. Bake at 425℉ for 15-20 minutes. Make sure the bottom of the dough cooks completely.You can check it by sliding a spatula under the galette and slightly tipping the spatula up to look. Remove from the oven and let cool for 5 minutes.
Sprinkle confectioner's sugar on the top. Slice into pieces and enjoy!

Thank you for joining me today. If you haven't ever made a Galette, I think you would enjoy doing so. As you can see, they are easy and pretty quick to make and a Galette is an great way to get rid of fruit that needs to be used up. For variety, another way to top your Galette is with a scoop of whipping cream!

Fresh Fruit Salad / #TasteCreations

I love a fun picnic anytime of year! Do you? They are so fun in the fall, with falling leaves and the crisp autumn air, and I love them in the spring when everything is starting to bloom, and I can't wait to get outside after a long winter,  and or course they are a natural summer activity that I always look forward to. I have had a few winter picnics with friends and family and they are fun too, but there is a lot of hurrying to eat, and constantly stoking the fire to keep warm, and a lot of frozen toes. Fun but in moderation!
We are all about picnic foods at the #TasteCreations party today, so I brought a Fresh Fruit Salad, which is always a favorite! It takes pretty much no time to put together, and it has that great flavor and feeling that you can only get from fresh fruit! I hope you enjoy it!

Just put the ingredients in the blender and push "blend". 
Don't think that these smoothies are just for the kids! Adults love them too! I know I can always use some extra veggies!
