Fruit Salsa with Cinnamon Chips



Most people like fruit, but get in a rut in terms of how they snack on fruit.  I admit that I do, and it gets boring to just eat slices of melon, pop grapes, bite in to an apple, etc. Making a fruit salsa is a fantastic and fun way to snack on fruit. You can use pretty much any fruit you want based on your preferences or what's in season / looks good at the market.

And, every salsa needs a chip counterpart, right?  Cinnamon tortilla chips are the perfect companion to a fruit salsa, and so easy to make!

My favorite thing about this recipe is how adaptable it is.  The strawberries at the market looking a little like a hot mess - use raspberries instead.  You forgot to buy apples but have peaches?  Go for it!  This salsa is amazingly easy to assemble, and really the only time consuming part is chopping the fruit, but you'd be doing that if you were snacking on plain fruit anyway, right?!

Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips
Ingredients:
2 Kiwis, peeled and diced
2 apples - peeled, cored and diced
8 oz. blueberries
1 lb. strawberries, hulled and chopped
2-3 tablespoons fruit preserves, any flavor
10 (10 inch) flour tortillas
4 Tablespoons butter, melted
1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 tablespoon cinnamon

Directions:
In a large bowl, thoroughly mix kiwis, apples, berries and preserves.  Cover and chill in the refrigerator for at least 15 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Mix cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl.

Using a pastry brush, coat one side of each tortilla with a thin layer of melted butter.  Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar mixture and lightly press in to butter and tortillas.  Cut in to wedges and arrange in a single layer on a large baking sheet.

Bake in preheated oven 8-10 minutes.  Repeat with any remaining tortilla wedges.  Allow to cool and serve with chilled fruit mixture.

Key Lime Gooey Butter Cake

I'm from St. Louis.  The home of Gooey Butter Cake.  Many people think it's a Paula Deen creation, and how could you not when you see how much butter is in it, but you can't go in to a restaurant, bakery or grocery store without seeing gooey butter somewhere in St. Louis.  We love it.  What's not to love with butter, cream cheese, powdered sugar, oh my!

But, considering I've made it numerous times, I'm always up for a new variation.  Nutella?  Check!  Cookies?  Don't mind if I do!  Pumpkin?  Well of course!  While talking to my mom about what to bring to a family function, she mentioned she saw a recipe for key lime gooey butter cake.  Sold!  I've never heard of the website she sent over to me, but it looked similar to the basics of every other recipe I've used for Gooey Butter Cake so I knew I wanted to give it a try!

One thing people may not realize is that Gooey Butter Cake is very easy to make.  Just a few ingredients really!  Just mix them, ba…

Foodbuzz 24x24: A Very Hungry Caterpillar First Birthday Party

It's hard to believe that my baby boy is technically no longer a baby anymore!  It seems like just yesterday I was a nervous wreck on our way to the hospital, and now all of a sudden I'm planning a birthday party!

Even before Ty was born though, I knew I wanted to do a Very Hungry Caterpillar party.  I'm not exactly sure what made me think of it, but one day I was sitting in his room and imagining reading him the first book I bought for him.  Yep - The Very Hungry Caterpillar!

There is something about the classic children's book that lends itself very well to entertaining.  Generally speaking, the focal point of any event (aside from the reason for celebration), is the food.    For those not familiar with the book - The Hungry Caterpillar is all about food!  He eats is way through many different foods, until he's big and strong and becomes a beautiful butterfly.  A perfect metaphor for a young baby.  It's amazing how much such a little guy can eat - but at th…

White Chocolate Cheesecake Mousse Filling

OK, so, while this recipe was the result of me literally quick thinking at the grocery store rushing around to pick up a few ingredients over Easter weekend, I came up with a fantastic cake filling, in my humble opinion.  I love the cake fillings at Costco and wanted to make a variation on that.  This is really semi-homemade but oh so good!  It's rich, creamy and decadent.  Even my husband loved it, and he's not really a cake fan.  It was so easy to make too!
