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!

Fresh Cherry Crisp / #FarmersMarketWeek

We are celebrating #FarmersMarketWeek this week, and today I am sharing an easy and delightful Fresh Cherry Crisp with you! I baked this tasty dessert in 4-8 ounce dessert bowls, topped them with whipped cream and put a cherry on top. Everyone loved them! I think you will too! 
 
 Fresh Cherry Crisp
(recipe serves 4)
(printable recipe at end of page)

1 1/2 pounds Fresh Cherries
1 teaspoon Lemon Juice
1/2 teaspoon Sugar
1/4 teaspoon Cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon Nutmeg
2-3 scrapes of Lemon Zest 

Topping

1/3 cup firmly packed Brown Sugar
1/2 cup Flour
1/4 cup Rolled Oats
3/4 teaspoon Cinnamon
4 tablespoon cold chopped Butter 1/2 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
2-3 tablespoons Sugar
 
Wash your cherries. Pit each cherry. Slice each cherry into quarters.
Add the lemon juice, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and lemon zest to the cherries and mix together.
In a separate bowl mix together the brown sugar, flour, rolled oats and cinnamon.
Add the chopped butter to the oatmeal mix.
 Add the cherries to the baking dishes.
Top each dish with the oatmeal topping. I like when there is a bit of the cherries showing around the edge, but if you prefer, sprinkle it all over to cover the cherries. Bake at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes. If you use a larger baking dish, extend the baking time needed. While your crisp is baking, make the whipped cream by mixing together the heavy cream, and the sugar on high speed.
Pit a cherry for the top of each dish. Leave the stem on and use the cherry pitter so that the cherry comes out of the bottom, and the stem stays intact. Top the dish with the whipped cream, a cherry and serve. Enjoy!

Southern Corn Relish / #FarmersMarketWeek

Welcome to #FarmersMarketWeek! I hope you will join me this week as I join a group of blogging friends sharing recipes you can make with veggies, spices, honey, jams, herbs, meats, fruits, basically anything you can buy at a farmers market! So many ways to go, and such a fun challenge!
My first recipe this week is Southern Corn Relish! If you have never had this delightful dish, you will want to give it a try! It reminds me more of a salsa, but I get the relish similarities also. It is a fun dish to make, with so many different and all fresh ingredients, and if you don't have a particular ingredient, substitute something you have! This relish holds up well in the fridge, so making it ahead of time is a great idea.

Southern Corn Relish
( makes enough for 4-5 )
(printable recipe at end of page)

2 cups of Corn cut off the cob
1/2 cup diced Onion
3/4 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
1/4 cup diced Red Pepper
1/4 cup diced Green Pepper
1/4 cup chopped Tomato
1/4 cup chopped Cucumber
1/4 cup packed Brown Sugar


 Prepping all your ingredients first makes putting this recipe together quick and easy. Make sure to cook the 2 corn cobs in boiling water for 10 minutes. The average cob has 1 cup of corn on it. Use white corn, bi-color or yellow, whichever is your favorite.

To easily remove the corn from the cob, and save your fingers, cut the tip off the bottom, and insert a corn holder in the top. Hold the corn with the holder and cut the corn off. 
 

Add the cut corn, chopped onions and apple cider vinegar to a large pot. 


Add the rest of the ingredients. Stirring the pot often, boil for 15 minutes. Let cool. 

Use your relish on anything! Maybe as a dip with chips, as a side dish, or spread some over a nice, hot, right off the grill, juicy steak!



Thank you for stopping by today, and I hope you enjoy the Southern Corn relish!

Smoked BBQ Wings

Did you know that today is National Chicken Wing Day? It is, and I am celebrating with some fellow bloggers by, what else but, enjoying some fun and fabulous Smoked BBQ Chicken Wings! There are so many different ways to enjoy chicken wings, that it is difficult to decide how to make them. They can be fried, of course. But also baked, slow cooked, air fried, grilled and smoked! Then there is the skin of the wing. It can be seasoned, rubbed, dipped, brushed, breaded, sprinkled, and rolled.  Then the flavors. They are endless! Do you want teriyaki, garlic herb, lemon pepper, cajun bbq, honey garlic, a dry rub, a mild mustard bbq, a hot sauce? I can truly continue for a page or two on the flavors, and I wouldn't have named them all. So, have I helped you decide how you want your wings, or have I just brought up more questions! I know, right! Too many decisions! So I decided to go with a Smoked BBQ Wing with a Spicy Rub, and I am so glad I did. This is the first time I have smoked wings, and they were fantastic! They take about 2 hours, and they are worth the wait!

 Smoked BBQ Wings 
(makes 1 dozen wings)
(printable recipe at end of page)


1 dozen raw Chicken Wings
3 tablespoons Chipotle Seasoning
1 1/2 teaspoons Garlic Salt
1 teaspoon Onion Powder
1/2 teaspoon Black Pepper
1/2 teaspoon Paprika
1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon Dark Brown Sugar


Mix all of the dry rub ingredients together in a bowl.
Roll each raw chicken wing in the rub, and place on a baking sheet. I rolled them sparingly, as I knew it would be a bit hot, and I didn't want to overdo it! It ended up being the right way to dry rub them, as they had the perfect amount of heat!
I used applewood chips for the smoke. This picture is about 1 hour into the process. They are coming along great, and this is a good time to check the internal temperature of the wings.
Another 40-60 minutes, and the wings are temping at 165 degrees, so they are done!
Enjoy with your favorite dipping sauce!

Thank you for joining me today! I hope you have the opportunity to try my Smoked BBQ Wings! My family and I loved them!

Blueberry Lemon Curd Dessert Egg Rolls / #BlueberryWeek




Today is the last day of #BlueberryWeek, and I am so excited to share my Blueberry Lemon Curd  Dessert Egg Rolls with you! This recipe is tasty and fun to eat! You will also love the fact that so much of this recipe can be made ahead of time. You can make both the Lemon Curd and the Blueberry Sauce, and keep them in the refrigerator until you are ready to put the egg rolls together and fry them. Whether you are serving these egg rolls to guests or making them for your family, they make dessert fun!

Blueberry Lemon Curd Dessert Egg Rolls
 (makes 10-12 Egg Rolls)
(printable recipe at end of page)

 Lemon Curd
1/3 cup Sugar
2 teaspoons Cornstarch
2 teaspoons finely shredded Lemon Peel
1/4 cup Lemon Juice
1/4 cup Butter
2 Eggs 

Blueberry Sauce 
1/2 cup Sugar
1 tablespoon Cornstarch
4 cups Blueberries
1 teaspoon Lemon Juice

Additional Ingredients 
Egg Roll Wrappers
Confectioners Sugar
1-2 tablespoons Butter, melted


Place the two eggs into a medium size bowl. Beat the eggs, and set aside. In a saucepan, on medium heat, mix together the sugar and cornstarch, then add in the lemon peel and lemon juice. Add the butter.
Stir until the sauce becomes thick and bubbly. You may have to turn up the heat, but make sure to not turn it too high. You don't want to burn it.
Pour half of the lemon mix into the bowl with the eggs. Mix together with a whisk.
Pour the egg mix back into the pan. Cook it for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. 
Take the pan off the heat. Cover with wax paper and let cool. 
Mix the sugar and cornstarch together in a saucepan on medium heat. Add blueberries and lemon juice. 
Stir until the mix thickens and is boiling. Boil for one minute, stirring the entire time. Take off the heat and let cool.
Place a tablespoon of cooled lemon curd in the middle of each egg roll wrap. Use the back of a spoon to swipe the curd over the wrap.
Add blueberry sauce on top of the curd, and roll each egg roll. Seal the edges of the egg roll with the melted butter. I used a healthy amount of the sauce for each roll, approx. 2-3 tablespoons. There is no wrong amount. Fry the egg rolls in a deep fryer, or fry in a frying pan with 2-3" of oil heated to approx. 350 degrees. Keep turning the egg rolls to ensure they are completely fried.  Sprinkle with powdered sugar and drizzle the tops of the egg rolls with more blueberry sauce! Enjoy!
