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.

Nutella Cannoli

Nutella is something that I love, but honestly don't really eat or bake with that often, always regretting that fact each time I eat something with Nutella. Well, I am vowing to change my ways - starting with these Cannolis!  They're definitely not a traditional cannoli as the combination of cream cheese and whipped cream make them more like a cheesecake filling, or even mousse, but the cannoli shell makes them easy to grab and eat.  No fork required - my kind of dessert!


Usually I prefer to make mini cannolis because sometimes full ones are just too rich for me, however any recipe could easily be adapted to a regular cannoli shell size (or mini size if the case may be).  The combination of the cream cheese, whipped cream and Nutella definitely made these a rich bite-size dessert, that I think may become one of my go-to recipes when I need to make something quick and impressive.

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…

Exclusive Pumping - why I did it twice, and some tips & tricks

This is a story I've been wanting to share for several years, in fact one of the reasons I decided to make the switch to more of a life blog versus a food blog. So bear with me here!

I have two children. I tried breastfeeding both of them, and was unsuccessful with both, for different reasons. One wouldn't latch. One my supply was too fast and plentiful. I tried a few things because I really really wanted to breastfeed, but it was stressing me out, so I looked in to other options, which is where I learned about exclusive pumping. 

 What is exclusive pumping (or EP)? It's when a mother expresses her milk to feed her child, rather than feeding "straight from the source". Prior to having Tyler, I knew very little about pumping, but I knew that since I planned to breastfeed and planned to work after maternity leave, I would need a pump. But that was about it. I remember the weekend before he was born sitting on my bed playing with the pump and thinking the manual was…
