Fruit Pizza Secret Recipe - (Pies & Pastries)

  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • Fresh fruits include bananas, blueberries, raspberries, kiwi, grapes, strawberries, peaches, and pineapple.

Prepare the Crust and Glaze. Combine the cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla. Cream the mixture until it is smooth. Spread it over the cooled crust. Slice your fruits. Starting at the outside of the crust, arrange the fruit into rings using one fruit for each ring. Spoon the cooled glaze over the fruit, covering it completely. Chill it in the refrigerator. Cut the Fruit Pizza into wedges before serving.

Crust:


Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup butter or margarine (melted)

Thoughts On Fruit Pizza Secret Recipe: (Secret Recipe)


The butter is one of the secrets to this fruit pizza's incredible flavor. Butter is a better choice for taste instead of margarine. If you use browned butter for this recipe it does something special how it hits the tongue. You will receive compliments with this dessert dish.

The grated orange rind gives this Fruit Pizza a great orange flavoring. Real grated orange peel instead of using orange extract flavor also enhances the taste of orange.

Grand Marnier liqueur has a bitter orange aftertaste that is delightful. The browned butter, real grated orange peel, and Grand Marnier liqueur work together in this recipe ingredient trio to make anyone want more. Trust me, you will love it!


More Information For You:

My Thoughts For Today:

Employee appreciation.

My employer showed appreciation for all the employees by serving us burgers, brots, and delicious sides. I am always grateful when this happens. The food was very good. The burgers had a great fresh beef flavor. I had tomato, lettuce, cheese, and mayonnaise on my burger. You can see in the picture what I had on my brot. I am a huge mustard fan. Please do not judge me for the amount of mustard I use. Do you love mustard? Does your employer show their appreciation for you with food? Please share your experiences.

Keep on cooking!

This Peach-A-Berry Cobbler recipe is a great cobbler dessert! As mentioned in the recipe, the blueberries are optional. If you love peaches and blueberries, this cobbler will delight you. I've always enjoyed ice cream with my cobbler; vanilla is my favorite. I'm a coffee lover too, and a good cup of black coffee goes well for me. What do you think?

More Information For You:

To learn the history of cobbler you have to go back to the Colonial days in America. Many cobblers had normal on-hand ingredients. Cobblers were first meat and vegetable and then later evolved into a fruit dessert. Visit TastingTable to learn more about the rich history of cobbler.

Help for our puppy.


My youngest daughter has a Beagle and we love her very much. She is such a good dog. We noticed she has not been acting well lately. She wants to go outside to go to the bathroom a lot. I thought she might have a bladder issue so I ordered some cranberry cleanse medicine for dogs. I hope this will help her. I ordered it last night and it should be delivered tomorrow. If you have any experience with this kidney cleanse product please let me know your experience. Keep our Bella in your thoughts.

Keep on cooking!

Thoughts On Oriental Skillet Supper Recipe:

This recipe is perfect for two people. If more is needed you can double the recipe. Sprinkle with sesame seeds if desired. If you like this recipe a little sweeter, add 1 teaspoon of sugar. The sugar will make this dish taste like it came from an Asian restaurant.

When I eat Asian food I like to have egg rolls and crab rangoons with it. A fortune cookie is nice but that is such an American culture food item. I still enjoy the fortune cookie.

More Information For You:

Fortune cookies are a common food item at Asian restaurants in America. It is common to receive a mint, chocolate, or fortune cookie when you eat Chinese food at a restaurant. Fortune cookies originated in Japan. Learn more interesting facts about the Fortune Cookie by reading HISTORY's article, The Surprising Origins of the Fortune Cookie.

Questions For You:

  • Have you tried this Oriental Skillet Supper Recipe or one that is similar?
  • What is your favorite Asian meal?
  • Do you enjoy fortune cookies?
  • Did you read my recipe from yesterday? It is called Orange Balls Recipe and would go well with today's Oriental Skillet.

My Thoughts For Today:

My favorite BBQ!


Excellent pulled pork!

I love barbecue! One of my favorite places to get barbecue is at a local food truck. The food they make is so good and they have good prices. The barbecue is honestly some of the best I have ever tasted. I have written about this business in the past. This food truck serves the Webster County area and the locals are happy about it. The city does not have a barbecue restaurant so KETTLE & QUE fills a demand for great tasting food.

You can Follow or Like KETTLE & QUE's Facebook page so you will never miss a notification when they are open and their location. They are actually a food trailer but I don't know the technical term for it. Any ideas?

I stopped by the food truck this weekend and bought a pulled pork sandwich. My youngest daughter drove me because she likes driving and I had to pick up some things at the Big Box store. She had a turkey sandwich and said it was the best turkey she ever had. That is a big compliment because I can cook a tasty turkey. I picked up a pulled pork sandwich for my wife too. She loved it!

When I cook barbecue I like to cook it in the Instapot and add barbecue sauce when it's dished out. The Instapot makes the process quicker for me.

Keep on cooking!

Thoughts On Orange Balls Recipe:

This Orange Balls recipe will be a great choice if you enjoy orange treats in warmer weather. It has a sweet and orange tangy flavor with coconut. It has a very fruity, tropical taste. Kids love these Orange Balls. You may have to make more. They can be served with orange slices as a garnish that can be enjoyed too.

My Thoughts For Today:

Today I am sharing another food meme that is funny and also might make you raise an eyebrow. My big question after a little observation is, what is Goo Gone doing in the refrigerator? Are they keeping the Goo Gone cool for a purpose? Are they hiding it? I have had my work lunch stolen in the past and it's not a good feeling. Do you have a good idea like this meme to keep people from stealing your lunch? I wonder if a single piece of shrimp or a piece of rice would be missed? I figure if someone takes my lunch they may need it more than me. What are your thoughts about this food meme?

Keep on cooking!

Thoughts About Strawberry Jam Cake:

You can use your favorite icing for this Strawberry Jam Cake. If you want to bake a layer cake you can bake two pans of the cake and layer strawberry jam between the layers. For added appeal simply cut fresh strawberries in half and place them on top of the iced cake. Another idea is to layer the top with strawberry jam instead of icing the cake and then place fresh-cut strawberries on top. You are only limited by your imagination.

More Information For You:

The strawberry cake was first published by The Ohio Cultivator in 1845 and then made popular by The Lady's Recipe Book in 1847. Strawberries come from Europe. Strawberries get ripe first in Spring, they are categorized as a type of rose and even come in different colors. Visit Edible to learn more interesting facts about strawberries.

My Thoughts For Today:

I love barbecue pulled pork!

This weekend I am excited to visit a local food truck. The food truck serves the best barbecue I have tasted. I worked with a young friend whose father is the same age as me and has worked in the construction business for most of his life. He is in his middle age now and has always had the dream of owning his own food truck. He loves to cook and enjoys cooking barbecue food.

Some time back he began building his food trailer. It looks great and has a back porch with a barbecue smoker to cook the meats.

My friend told me his father had some issues getting his food trailer approved by the local health department. Apparently, the local food is very strict. Long story short, the food trailer is up to code and my friend's dad is serving the public. I am looking forward to visiting this local food trailer and enjoying a barbecue pulled pork sandwich.

This dessert can be topped with your favorite ice cream. It is best fresh out of the oven. I like to sprinkle a little cinnamon on top of the ice cream. If you are a coffee drinker like me, a hot cup of coffee goes well with this Apple Bread Pudding. When I was a teenager I worked at a local family restaurant. It was my first job. The restaurant had a weekly buffet on Sundays. They served bread pudding. It was the first time I tried bread pudding. The owners allowed us to charge any food we ate and they would deduct it from our paycheck at the end of the week. I always had something to eat there and bread pudding was delicious.

My Thoughts For Today:

My mother's father.

This is my grandfather. He is my mother's father. He is holding his first great-great-granddaughter. This picture was taken several years ago. Today he is 94 years old. I have many memories of my grandfather. He served in the United States Navy and was in the Korean War. He served on a ship they nicknamed the "Tin Can" and shared many memories with me of his time there. I believe he said the ship was a "Destroyer" ship and is now a retired ship. The ship was named U.S.S. Potter. I love hearing about his time serving in the Navy.

My grandfather likes to make banana bread. I haven't had his banana bread in some time but I always enjoy it. You can see the tattoos on his arm in the picture. It was very taboo in his time for people to have tattoos but it was a common thing to have in the Navy as a memento. He has a Hula girl tattooed on his arm and when I was a child he would show it to me. He would flex his arm muscles and make the Hula girl dance. It always made me laugh.

For those with a DREAM!

My wife bought me a T-shirt. As a Missouri resident, I do play the Missouri lottery on occasion. I don't spend a lot, just a dollar or two. The dream of winning the lottery lives in most of us. I have won small amounts but I believe I will hit a jackpot. When I do you can be sure I will share my adventure with you here.

What would you do if you won the lottery jackpot? It is fun to think about. Maybe you would share with family and friends. You could take an exotic vacation and experience what it is like to live in financial freedom. Can you imagine it? I try to live each day with the feeling of being a lottery winner. I think with gratitude for all the blessings in my life. I am grateful for family, friends, and health. This is the real state I try to live in every day. Do you do this? Even if it is a cup of coffee at home where the quietness of life can be enjoyed, it can be something to be grateful for. Can you list some of your blessings? I believe you can if you think about it. Give it a try!

Great copy recipe!


I don't know the exact recipe for Texas Roadhouse butter but this is a great copy. I love going to Texas Roadhouse for a steak and I always look forward to their hot rolls. The rolls come with honey butter. I usually tell the server to keep the rolls coming so I have to take my meal carry-out so I can enjoy the leftovers later. I like to get the 20-ounce bone-in ribeye steak with green beans. Next time I go to the Texas Roadhouse restaurant I will make a video for you.

My Thoughts For Today:

Let sleeping dogs lie.

This is my youngest daughter's dog. He is very small. He is also very sweet and spoiled. I am mostly to blame for him being so spoiled. He loves to lay on my lap and nap while I write. If you look up "lap dog" in the dictionary you will probably see this picture of him on my lap. You could say he is the "Poster Dog" for lap dogs. So when you read my posts there is a great chance this little dog is lying on my lap making it difficult for me to work. It's ok. I love that little dog.

I got to attend a birthday party today for a little relative. It was the 3rd birthday party for my great-nephew. He is a cool little guy and reminds me of his dad when he was that age. Kids and dogs grow too fast. I believe it is best to enjoy them when they are small and do our best to make them happy.

Keep on cooking!
