Fruit Salsa Recipe


for the fruit salsa:2 kiwis, peeled and diced
2 Golden Delicious apples – peeled, cored and diced
8 oz raspberries
1 (16 oz) carton of strawberries, diced
2 tbsp white sugar
1 tbsp brown sugar
3 tbsp fruit preserves, any flavor (I used strawberry; would only use 2 tbsp next time)

for the cinnamon chips:10 (10 inch) flour tortillas
melted butter or butter flavored cooking spray
cinnamon sugar:
1 cup white sugar
2 tbsp cinnamon


1. In a large bowl, thoroughly mix kiwis, apples, raspberries, strawberries, white sugar, brown sugar, and fruit preserves. Cover and chill in the refrigerator at least 15 minutes while the oven preheats to 350 degrees.

2. Coat one side of each flour tortilla with melted butter or butter flavored cooking spray. Sprinkle tortillas with desired amount of cinnamon sugar, cut into wedges, and arrange in a single layer on a large baking sheet. Spray again with cooking spray (not necessary if using melted butter).

3. Bake in the preheated oven 8 to 10 minutes. Repeat with any remaining tortilla wedges. Allow to cool approximately 15 minutes. Serve with chilled fruit mixture. This salsa can also be served with cinnamon graham crackers or cinnamon pita chips.

*Best when made and eaten the same day otherwise the fruit gives off so too much juice and it gets runny.

Health-ish Snack for you (or better your kids!)

om nom nom nom!
Pretty easy to follow pics, and you can always subsitute the flour tortilla for a whole wheat one!

Military Moves

We are getting ready for a move. El Paso, TX is the next duty station for my hubs... So we should be out there sometime in August..
The short notice of the move is making this pretty stressful!

I am still taking classes here and will be done with this semester right before we move... I hope i am able to keep my A in Anatomy and be ready for this move on time.

As soon as we get there school will be starting again for Lorena and me so i need to make sure that i have time to get us situated and enrolled.. I am thinking i may skip a semester of college so that i can settle in before taking on too much.

The scariest thing to me right now is getting to a new place and not having a home to go to... :/

I will keep you all updated on how things are going leading up to the move.
