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!

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!

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!
