Texas Chicken Quesadillas

2 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
1 onion, sliced into rings (I chop mine very fine)
1 tablespoon honey
2 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cut into strips or chunks
1/2 cup GF barbeque sauce
1/2 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
1/2 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
24 (6 inch) corn tortillas

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2. In a large, deep skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium high heat. Slowly cook and stir onion until translucent. Mix in honey. Stir until onion is golden brown, about 5 minutes. Remove from skillet and set aside.
3. Place remaining oil and chicken in the skillet over medium high heat. Cook until chicken is no longer pink. Stir in barbeque sauce and evenly coat chicken.
4. Layer 12 tortillas individually with chicken, onions, Cheddar cheese and Monterey Jack cheese. Top with remaining tortillas.
5. Place tortillas on a large baking sheet. You may only be able to bake 5-6 at a time. Bake uncovered in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until cheese is melted. Do not let tortillas become too crisp. Remove from heat. Cut into quarters to serve
We cooked ours on a griddle and reheated the leftovers in the oven the following day. They were fabulous.

Fruit Pizza

A summertime classic. Full of color and yummy flavor!

For this recipe I cooked mine on a 15 inch round glass pan. If you want to make it in a jelly roll pan, I would use a full cookie recipe and double the cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla.

4 oz. cream cheese
1/4 C powdered sugar
2 tsp vanilla

Seasonal fruit of your choice. I used strawberries, blueberries and mandarin oranges.

1/2 C pureed strawberries (or fruit of your choice)
1/2 C water
1/4 C sugar
2 TB cornstarch
Cook until thickened.

Spread cookie dough out on greased pan of your choice. I baked mine at 350 degrees for 12 minutes. Let cool. Mix cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla. Spread over cookie crust. Top with your favorite seasonal fruits. Drizzle glaze over the pizza. If not serving immediately, refrigerate.

Chocolate Covered Cake Pops

I found this awesome website called Bakerella and she makes these really cool cake pops. I followed her directions located on her website only I baked a GF cake and colored it pink. I was looking for a fun new birthday classroom treat for my girls and this hit the spot. They are definitely a very sweet treat. They are supposed to look like cupcakes, but it will just need to work on that!
