Tasty Tuesday - Summer is here!

Last Sunday we had a pool party at the neighbors house. Word to the wise, buy a house next to people with a pool and be-friend them, you get to enjoy the pool without the hassle or upkeep! Not saying we would not be friends with our neighbors but it sure is a perk! Here are 2 recipes I made.


Fruit Pizza


Ingredients:

  • 1 (18 oz)package refrigerated sugar cookie dough
  • 1 (7 oz)jar marshmallow creme
  • 1 (8 oz)package cream cheese, softened
  • Assorted fruit
  • 1 squeezed lime
  • 1-2 tablespoons confectioners sugar

Directions:

  • On an ungreased medium baking sheet, smooth the refrigerated sugar cookie dough into a single layer approximately 1/4 inch thick. Bake as directed, or until edges are lightly browned and center is no longer doughy. Let cool
  • In a medium bowl, blend the marshmallow creme and cream cheese. Spread the mixture over the baked crust. Top with assorted fruit. Squeeze 1 lime in a small bowl and mix in 1-2 tablespoons of confectioners sugar. Use pastry brush to glaze fruit to prevent browning. Chill in the refrigerator until serving.
Greek Pasta

Ingredients:
  • 1 box pasta - I used whole wheat pasta
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes cut in half
  • 1 (6 oz) jar kalamata olives cut in half
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese cut into small squares
  • 1 cucumber cut into bite size pieces
  • 1/4 cup minced basil
  • Dressing: 1/4 cup balsamic vinaigrette, you can buy this or make it yourself
Directions:
  • Cook pasta as directed. Toss everything together and add dressing as desired. Salt & pepper to taste.
