Caramel Apple Quick Bread / #OurFamilyTable

Today I am talking about quick breads! Quick Breads have been a part of my life since I can remember. My mother was not the type of cook with the patience to wait for bread to rise, so quick breads were a staple on our dinner table. I have always loved them, so I was excited to join in this celebration! 
I made a Caramel Apple Quick Bread to celebrate fall! Here in North Carolina we are enjoying a little taste of cooler weather, and although I know it will not last, it is definitely worth celebrating and enjoying it! So Happy Fall!
I used a basic quick bread recipe and then added some additional ingredients to create today's recipe. I hope you love it as much as I do! 
Caramel Apple Quick Bread 
Makes 1 loaf
printable recipe at end of page
2 1/4 cup all purpose Flour
1 tablespoon Baking Powder
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1 1/2 cup Buttermilk
3 large Eggs
6 tablespoons Vegetable Oil
3/4 cup of granulated White Sugar
3/4 cup light Brown Sugar
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla

APPLES
2 Gala Apples
1 teaspoon all purpose Flour
1 teaspoon Roasted Cinnamon
1 teaspoon Lemon Juice
1/2 cup Caramel Bits
5 Caramel Squares 


Mix together the flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl. Set aside.
Mix together the eggs, buttermilk, oil, sugars and vanilla.
Add the dry ingredients into the bowl of wet ingredients and mix well.
Grab another bowl and chop up the apples into small pieces, like shown above. Add the flour, roasted cinnamon and lemon juice. Mix together, coating the apples.
Add the bowl of apples into the bread mix. Stir with a spoon or spatula. Add the caramels bits to the bowl and stir.
Grease and flour a loaf pan. Pour bread batter into the pan. Add additional caramel bits. Bake at 350 degrees for 60-80 minutes.
Place 5 pieces of caramel squares across the top of the bread while it is still hot. Drag a knife or rubber spatula around the pan to loosen the sides.

As soon as the bread is taken from the oven, place foil over the bread pan, tented at the top, so the caramels don't get stuck to the foil. Let cool.
 Remove the bread from the pan. 
Enjoy the bread warm or cooled. Be aware that the bread might be wet in some areas because of the apples.
Thank you for joining me today! As always, if you have any questions please send me an email.

Easy Tortilla Pizza / #OurFamilyTable

A long time ago, when my son was growing up, fixing and eating a quick meal every evening was a way of life. My husband and I worked, after school activities were a thing every night, or so it seemed, and finding the time to sit down and have a family dinner was rare. Even years later, it always seems like we are busy, running here, going there, never stopping. Sometimes the answer is a simple meal, that comes together quickly and becomes a favorite. This Easy Tortilla Pizza may be what you have been looking for!

Easy Tortilla Pizza 
feeds 4
printable recipe at end of page 

1 raw Chicken Breast (8-10 ounces)
Minced Garlic
Black Pepper
Fresh Jalapeno Pepper
1 Corn on the Cob
Butter
Onion Slices
Mini Tortillas
Pizza Sauce
4 Cheese Mix
Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
Fresh Avocado
Salsa


Slice the chicken into small, bite sized pieces. Sprinkle with minced garlic and pepper for a great flavor.
Chop the jalapeno pepper into small pieces.
Boil the corn for 10 minutes in water. Let cool a bit, then cut the kernels off the cob. I find the best way to do this without cutting yourself is to place a corn cob holder in the end of the corn and use it to steady the cob as you slice down, cutting the corn off.
Place a teaspoon of butter in a pan and pan grill the corn until it begins to turn slightly brown. Add some onion slices and continue grilling both the corn and the onions until tender. Pan grill the jalapeno pieces in a separate pan unless everyone eating the pizzas like jalapeno.
Start building your pizza. Place the mini tortillas in a large pan on medium heat. Top each pizza crust with some of the sauce and swirl it around the crust covering to the edge. Add the onions, corn, jalapeno, and chicken.
Top the pizzas with the cheese, choosing one or the other or both. You can never have enough cheese! If your cheese is not melting quick enough, place a lid on the pan for a few minutes to quicken the melting process.
Cut the pizza and enjoy! Serve with a side of salsa and some avocado slices!

I hope you find this Easy Tortilla Pizza to be the answer to your busy family dinners!

Cucumber Egg Salad Bites / #OurFamilyTable

I am an egg lover! What about you? I enjoy eggs pretty much anyway you can make them. From the pretty basic, over easy breakfast (and sometimes dinner) with ham and toast, to a fancy chocolate souffle. If eggs are on the menu, I'm there! Today I made Cucumber Egg Salad Bites. These little bites remind me of tea parties and fancy luncheons. They are dainty and quite refreshing, and would make a wonderful addition to your Easter or Mother's Day table!

Cucumber Egg Salad Bites
(recipe makes approx. 20 pieces)
(printable recipe at end of page)

6 Eggs
2-3 Cucumbers
1 small Onion
3-4 tablespoons Mayonnaise
Ground Pepper
Fresh Strawberries


Boil your eggs first. I boil them a certain way, and I very seldom ever have any trouble getting the shell off. This is how to make them look pretty. Place the eggs in a pot of cold water. Put the temperature on high so they will boil. Once boiling, set the timer for 15 minutes. Once the timer rings, take the eggs to the sink. Don't drain the hot water, but start adding cold water to the pot. Let water run over into the sink, until the water in the pot is ice cold.

 Remove boiled eggs from the pot. The shells should come off quickly now, and more importantly, with out looking cut up and ugly.

I sliced the egg down the center, then turned it and sliced it on the other side. Chop into pieces.

 Before placing the egg salad in the cucumber, cut a little bit of the flesh of the cucumber away from the sides. Only go about half way down. You want to leave a little bit on the bottom.

Chop the onions into small bite sized pieces. Add mayonnaise, a little at a time, mixing after each addition. You will know when you have enough. Sprinkle with ground pepper. Chop the strawberries. Don't cut them too tiny. They taste best in this dish when they are cut a little bigger. Use a small scoop to place egg salad into cucumber.  That's it!

 I hope you enjoyed this recipe for Cucumber Eggs Salad Bites. If you have any questions about anything, please leave a message below, in the comments, and I will answer you asap. Thank you for stopping by today! Check out how some of my blogging friends put their unique and tasty spin on Egg Salad!

Naan Bread Grilled Veggie Pizza / #FarmersMarketWeek

We love homemade pizzas at out house! We love adding our favorite toppings and our favorite cheese, and popping them on the grill or in the oven, for a quick and easy snack or meal! Over time we have experimented with various types of crust, and we have several that we like. We have tried homemade dough, dough from the grocery, and frozen dough. We have used tortillas as the crust, along with purchased crust, but these Mini Naan Breads are a family favorite. We all like them!
This recipe is super simple and quick. I used purchased Naan Bread and purchased Pizza Sauce, so this may be more of a "how to put together a pizza", than a recipe. I added tasty items from the Farmers Market, like onions, roma tomatoes, and corn.  No matter how you look at it, you are going to love these pizzas. For a quick meal or snack, they can't be beat!


Naan Bread Grilled Veggie Pizza
(printable recipe at end of page)
(makes 2 pizzas)

Mini Naan Bread
Pizza Sauce
1 Roma Tomato
2 tablespoons of Corn 
2-3 tablespoons of Sweet Vidalia Onion
Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
Fresh Mozzarella Pearls


Spoon pizza sauce on to the Naan Bread. Chop up onion, slice tomato, and cut corn from the cob. 
Roast the corn on the grill, or in a frying pan, until it is brown and delicious looking.
Start building your pizza. Add more of what you love, and less, or none of what you don't!
Sprinkle the shredded mozzarella over the sauce and vegetables. Add the fresh mozzarella pearls to the top! They are the best!
Place your pizza on a baking sheet and pop it into the pre heated oven at 350 degrees. It should take approx. 7 minutes to bake, then switch to broil for 3 minutes.
If you are grilling the pizza~YUM! Use a temperature of medium, and watch the bottom of the Naan Bread so it doesn't burn. It will taste so good and take approx. 15-20 minutes.
This is definitely ready to eat!
Anyway you cook it, you are going to love Naan Bread Grilled Veggie Pizza!

Watermelon Treats / #SundaySupper

I am always happy and sad to see Labor Day come around. I don't like that it means the end of summer, but I love that fall will soon be in the air! Labor Day gives us the chance to celebrate both summer and fall along with the reason for the day~to celebrate working men and women! We are sharing Labor Day Menu Ideas today for SundaySupper, and I am excited about these simple and fun Watermelon Rice Krispie Treats!
Watermelon Treats 
(printable recipe at end of page) 
(makes 12 treats)
3 tablespoons Butter 
10 ounces Marshmallows
6 cups Rice Krispies Cereal
Candy Corn Cookie Cutter
Frosting Colors in Pinkish Red, Green, and White
3 #2 decorating tips, 3 decorating bags
Mini Chocolate Chips
Sticks for the treats


Most cooks know how to make rice cereal treats, but just in case it has been a while, here's what to do: Melt the butter in a large saucepan, over low heat. Add the marshmallows to the butter and stir until they are completely melted. Remove the pan from heat. Add the cereal, and mix together until covered completely.
 Place the mix into a buttered or sprayed half sheet pan, or any pan that has sides the same height as the sheet pan. Cover with plastic until cooled. The rice krispie treats should be even across the top with the top of the pan. 
Cut out the watermelon slices. Using the space sparingly, you should get 12-13 watermelon slices from the rice krispie.
Mix the pinkish red color together. Use your favorite recipe, or use my favorite. I have used this recipe for years, and I think you will like it! Use a decorating bag and a #2 tip to outline the watermelon slice and then fill it in. Drop approx. 6 mini chocolate chips onto the top 3/4's of the treat. Insert stick into the bottom of the watermelon wedge. Let dry.
Use the green frosting color, and a decorating bag with a #2 tip to form the rind of the watermelon.
Fill in the area. Let dry.
Use the white frosting to draw a straight line to resemble the white part of the rind.
Insert sticks carefully. Inserting the sticks could make the frosting crack, so moving slowly works best.
