Fresh Peach Dessert

Hey, Classy Clutter readers! It’s Adell, from Baked in Arizona.  I am excited to share another great recipe with you today!

 

This recipe was sent to me from my sister-in-law. Her husband has a total sweet tooth (almost as much as me) and this is by far one of his most favorite desserts! My family went crazy over it too. Just make sure you use fresh (not canned) peaches.

My grandpa grew up in Utah where they grow some delicious peaches. After one bite of this dessert he said “Now those are peaches!” haha! I loved it cause he could tell right away that I used fresh peaches and absolutely loved the dish. I don’t know about you but making food (treats!) that my family loves brings me so much joy!

 

The baked graham cracker crust is followed by a layer of peach jello & fresh peaches all mixed together. Then you top it off with a sweet cream cheese mixture and sprinkle more graham crackers on top! Just writing about it is making my mouth water :).

If you want to make this a no-bake dessert you don’t have to bake the crust. I prefer it with the crust baked. It makes it easier to cut and serve and adds a nice crunch on the bottom. But if you want to just press the crumbs into the bottom of the pan and not bake it, that will work as well.

I hope you enjoy this cool, creamy, peachy treat as much as we did!
Fresh Peach Dessert

Ingredients:

  • FOR THE CRUST:
  • 2 packages graham crackers, crushed (or 2 cups)
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 6 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • FOR THE FILLING:
  • 5 cups fresh peaches, peeled & diced.
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 (3 ounce) package peach jello
  • FOR THE TOPPING:
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 (8 ounce) carton cool whip
Instructions:
  1. FOR THE CRUST: Crush the graham crackers in a food processor (or zip top bag with a rolling pin) and place in a bowl. Add the sugar. Melt the butter and pour over the crushed crackers & sugar. Stir till all crumbs are moist. Take out 2 cups and set aside for the top. Now add 1 tablespoon water. Press into the bottom of a 13×9″ pan & bake for 8 minutes at 375. Allow the crust to cool. (For a no-bake dessert you can omit the baking of the crust. It will be more crumbly when serving).
  2. FOR THE FILLING: Peel and cut the fresh peaches into about 1 inch pieces and set aside. Bring the water, sugar and cornstarch to a boil. Add the package of peach jello and stir till dissolved. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Add the peaches once cooled and gently pour over cooled crust. Chill until set (about 2 to 4 hours)
  3. FOR THE TOPPING: Cream together the cream cheese and powdered sugar. Fold in the cool whip. Spread over the top of the set jello filling. Chill to set and top with the remaining graham cracker crumb mixture before serving.
  4. NOTES: 2 packages of graham crackers is about 18 sheets or 2 cups crushed. To get 5 cups of diced peaches, I used 7 small/medium peaches.

Homemade Peppermint Ice Cream

With the holidays right around the corner this is the perfect thing to bring to a party. My aunt Debbie would always bring homemade peppermint ice cream to family parties and it was always my favorite thing. Recently, I got my very own Ice cream machine and I knew that my very first ice cream favor would be peppermint.  It’s easy and it also makes quite a bit of ice cream. Better yet you can use this recipe for all different favors. If you want a fruit favor, substitute the peppermint for fruit of your choice, or if you want vanilla just increase the vanilla to 3 tsp.

peppermint ice cream4

This is what you will need.

3 eggs

3 cups of sugar

1 can of evaporated milk

1 1/2 cups whole milk

1 pint whipping cream, whipped

1 1/2 tsp. vanilla

2 packages of peppermints

Unwrap one package of peppermint and put on the stove with the whole milk and melt the peppermint on medium heat, and let cool. Beat eggs, sugar, and evaporated milk. Crush the other package of peppermints and stir into the egg mixture and pour into the ice cream freezer machine.  Add whipping cream and vanilla then add in the melted peppermint but be sure it is cooled or the hot peppermints with cook the eggs. Fill to the line of the ice freeze with whole milk. Follow the directions of your machine to make the ice cream.

Then, enjoy! You will love it!!! Promise!

The Perfect Taco Meat

I tried this taco meat for the first at my moms house and it was soooooo amazing then I was shocked to hear that it was only 3 Ingredients. How easy is that!? I have tried a lot of taco meat recipes and this one is my favorite.

IMG_01592

The three ingredients are…

  1. The Roast
  2. 3 Cups Orange Juice
  3. And a generous amount of Carne Asada seasoning

carneasadasm

Don Sazon Carne Asada Meat

This is the brand that my mom and I used and we love it but only a few stores have this brand. In Arizona, we have a few different stores that have this kind of seasoning. Food City is one of those places. You maybe able to  find it in a grocery store that has a great authentic mexican selection.  We season both sides of the roast with a generous amount of seasoning.

Leave it in the crock pot for 6-8 hours on low. Make yummy tacos with this yummy taco meat.

Try it out! Let me know what you think about it. If you have another brand of seasoning that you like, PLEASE let me know what it is!

Slow Cooker Vegetarian Taco Soup Recipe

Ready for the easiest recipe of your life?  This is a family favorite around here. My husband is vegan so a lot of times I try to adapt regular recipes or vegetarian recipes to suit a vegan diet. This recipe is one of our favorites because you can skip the meat and you don’t even notice it’s missing! There are a million taco soup recipes out there and I’ve been making it for years but I HAD to share our Slow Cooker Vegetarian Taco Soup Recipe with you! It is SO yummy and ridiculously easy. It also makes amazing leftovers and an incredible freezer meal. Win, win, win!

Slow Cooker Vegetarian Taco Soup Recipe - www.classyclutter.net

Ingredients:

  • 1 can of Pinto Beans
  • 1 can of Kidney Beans
  • 1 can of Black Beans
  • 1 can of corn
  • 1 can of Rotel (diced tomatoes with green chilis)
  • 1 can of diced tomatoes
  • 1 can of green chilis (optional but extra yummy!!!)
  • 1 packet of Ranch seasoning
  • 1 packet of Taco Seasoning (I buy mild, low sodium)

Instructions:

Place all ingredients in a slow cooker for 8 hours on low or 4 hours on high. Top with your favorite toppings like cheese, sour cream, fresh cilantro and tortilla chips! This recipe is SO easy, my 5 year old can do it. The kids love to help as I open the cans, they pour them into the slow cooker and that’s it! So quick and easy!

Told you, how easy was that!?! It tastes SO good and there is NO cooking prep.

Freezer Meal: Slow Cooker Vegetarian Taco Soup Recipe - www.classyclutter.net

This also makes the BEST freezer meal. I suggest placing leftovers in a freezer bag and freezing it flat. To reheat, run hot water in the sink and place the freezer bag under it until it begins to thaw. When it starts to break down, pour your frozen soup into the slow cooker and heat on low for 8 hours, high for 4 hours or until the soup is hot throughout. SO easy and awesome! I love having this on hand because dinner is basically made for me!

15 After School Snack Ideas

My two little boys are starting school this Fall and I know I’m going to hear “I’m hungry” the moment I see them after school. They’re like me… if we don’t eat often, we get a little hangry. Heard of it? It’s Hungry + Angry. Bad combination. Especially when we all get hangry at once. Bad news bears! I’m hoping having some snacks planned out will help us all.  These after school snack ideas all look so yummy!

Glazed Blueberry Donut Muffins

Hello Classy Clutter readers! Adell here, from Baked in Arizona. Today I am sharing an amazing muffin recipe I tried recently. Muffins are a favorite around our house. What about you?
                         
My family and I recently spent a couple weeks in Utah. My in-laws live there and we love when we get a chance to go visit. It was so nice to escape the Arizona heat too! They live on the side of a mountain, and my kids love walking down to the creek. They could spend hours there throwing rocks into the water.

One of the mornings we were there, I made these muffins. They are pretty much the best of both worlds. A donut/muffin?! Yes, Please :)

I love donuts but after I eat one I usually don’t feel great. A muffin probably has as much sugar but it’s baked so it doesn’t make me feel as guilty. The texture of these muffins is very unique. They are more dense than a typical fluffy muffin. And the tart, lemon glaze is just perfect.

 

I hope you give these a try and let us know what you think!

Glazed Blueberry Donut Muffins

Ingredients:

  • FOR THE MUFFINS:
  • zest of 2 lemons
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 2/3 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 1/3 cup fresh blueberries

 

  • FOR THE GLAZE:
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1-2 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon warm water*
Directions:
  1. FOR THE MUFFINS: Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Line a 12 count muffin pan with paper cups or lightly grease.
  2. In a medium sized bowl, combine the lemon zest and sugars. Use your fingertips or a spoon to incorporate the zest into the sugars until moist and fragrant.
  3. In another bowl, cream together the butter, oil, and sugars until smooth. Add the eggs and vanilla. Beat till combined.
  4. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir the flour mixture into the butter mixture alternately with the milk, beginning and ending with the flour. Fold in the blueberries.
  5. Spoon the batter evenly into the prepared muffin pan. (The cups will be full)
  6. Bake the muffins for 15-17 minutes, or until they are pale golden brown and a knife comes out clean.
  7. FOR THE GLAZE: in a medium sized bowl mix together the melted butter, powdered sugar, vanilla, lemon juice and water* Whisk until smooth.
  8. When the muffins have cooled slightly, dip the muffin crown into the glaze and allow the glaze to harden. You can then dip them again for a thicker glaze. I glazed them twice.
  9. *For a more tart glaze, use 2 T. lemon juice instead of the 1 T. warm water. I did this and really loved the extra tart flavor.

And if a glazed donut muffin just isn’t your thing try these muffins with a sweet crumble top!
