Fruit Pizza

Fruit Pizza has been around for awhile.  It's nothing new.  It's nothing exciting.  It's super easy. 

I decided to make one to take to a friend's house this past weekend. The primary reason I decided to make one is that it only requires 12-14 of oven time, and in this Texas heat, that is a big plus.



(because I'm a ding-bat, I only took a photo with my iphone)

I had forgotten just how darn good this is as a summer dessert!  YU-MMY!  So, if you've never made one, get crackin'.  If you had forgotten about this tired old recipe, break it back out and make it soon!  Your taste buds will thank you!

Fruit Pizza



Place 1 roll of Pillsbury Sugar Cookie dough onto a greased pizza pan.  Pat it flat.*  Bake at 350 degrees for 12-14 minutes, then let cool.

Mix together:

2- 8 ounce packages of cream cheese (softened)
1 cup of sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla

Then spread over the top of the cooled cookie.

Then arrange your fruit.** Peach slices around rim, then strawberries, bananas, seedless grapes, pineapple chunks, and pineapple slice in the middle. 

After you've got your fruit arranged, you are going to cover it with a glaze (make glaze earlier so that it can cool before you put it on your fruit).  Don't skip the glaze, it will keep your fruit from turning brown.

Glaze:  Combine 1/2 cup pineapple juice, 1/2 cup water, 1/2 cup sugar and 2 Tablespoons of corn starch in a pan. Heat over stove-top.  Keep stirring until it thickens.  Then let it cool before spooning over fruit. 

*I think they've changed the Sugar Cookie dough since this recipe was invented.  It still tastes good, but I probably wouldn't push it completely up to the edge of the pizza pan.  There is a chance that if you do push it to the edge, it will rise up, run over the edge of your pan, and fall to the bottom of your oven and start smoking something awful.

**This is just a guide. You can use whatever fruit is in season or even some canned is okay. You can see I did my own thing. I'm a rebel like that. I don't like rules. Don't fence me in!

Swiss Oatmeal {Copy Cat Recipe}

I'm obsessed with Swiss Oatmeal.  I particularly love  Corner Bakery's Swiss Oatmeal.  If you are not familiar with Swiss Oatmeal, it is a cold oatmeal cereal with fruit and nuts.

I've had a similar recipe for years, but it was only similar.  It wasn't close enough for my liking.  So I finally set out into the land of Pinterest to find a recipe that was a good Copy Cat.  I found a few, combined them and came up with what I think is a very close Copy Cat Recipe of Corner Bakery's Swiss Oatmeal.

Here's what I do (note, this recipe is really just pictures, because I don't really have measurements for these things.  The photos aren't great, but it's easier if I show you what I do)...

Here's the Phase 1ingredients... Milk Honey Yogurt (I use a vanilla greek yogurt) Oats (old fashioned, not quick...you probably could do steel cut too)  I've simplified this to where you only need a bowl and a spoon for Phase 1 because I use my yogurt cup as a meas…

It's all about the dress...

I mean I guess it's really all about getting married, but come on, you always anticipate the dress right?  Well holy moly folks!  Today a big secret was released to the press.  No, we still don't know which dress or tiara Kate will be wearing, but we heard for the first time that Princess Diana had a back-up dress!  Here are some of the pictures and sketches...

And you know what?  I like the back-up dress better than the one she wore!  I know, I know.  I'm going to get blasted for saying that, but I'll just confess it right now... My name is Kara and I've never thought Princess Diana's dress was all that and a bag of chips.  Nope.  Not my favorite Royal Wedding Dress by any stretch of the imagination.  What is my favorite?  Probably the one that Sarah Ferguson wore when she married Andrew...
It had beautiful beading and stitching throughout.  Also on the train it had an "A&quo…

Pumpkins, Gourds & Flowers, oh my!

Yesterday, I went to the Dallas Arboretum.  Lisa, Jennifer, and I went as my birthday outing.  We got a late start due to some court delays, so we stopped for lunch first.  I needed some make-up too, so we went to Neimans.  We ogled some purses, had lunch, I got some make-up and then we headed out to the arboretum (in the rain).

It was raining pretty good on the way over, but luckily, we only needed umbrellas for a few minutes.  Thankfully the sun never came out, because it was so humid, I'm pretty sure we would have melted. 




First, we made our way toward the Pumpkin Village...

I love how they made garland out of the mini-pumpkins...






These rose bushes were just stunning!  The roses on each bush varied in color from a coral, to a blush, to a purple hue...
It was Fall at the arboretum, and pumpkins, gourds, and mums are a large part of the visit.  However, they also have a Chihuly art exhibition going on.  I took so many pictures, I HAVE to make that it's whole separate post.  …
