Diane Roark: Cadron Crest Orchard {Foodie Friday}

If you landed here looking for a fun family activity, or you simply want to pick fresh fruit in Arkansas, I am thankful you found this post. Cadron Crest Orchard is a great place to take your family apple or peach picking. My name is Diane Roark. I blog about easy recipes at Recipes For Our Daily Bread, and family fun travel ideas at Our American Travels.

Cadron Crest Orchard

 

Last year we had to find another place to pick fresh, delicious Arkansas peaches. We lived across the street from Collins Round Mountain Orchard. Unfortunately, they sold the land last year to a developer which meant no more peach picking. Fortunate for us we found another terrific place, Cadron Crest Orchard. Cadron Crest Orchard is a unique farm in Guy, Arkansas. They grow fresh Apples, Peaches, Strawberries, Watermelon, grapes, watermelon, tomatoes, sweet corn and cantaloupe that I saw. If you are looking for something else, you can call them at the number below for more information or see their Facebook page here. They are open May through September where you can walk through rows and rows of beautiful peach or apple trees. You can pick your fruit and vegetables fresh from the farm to your table.

Nothing is better than eating fresh farm fruit and vegetables except for eating the fresh farm fruits and vegetables you picked. It is super fun for the entire family. We race around the orchard trying to see who can spot the prettiest piece of fruit. A little family competition fills our basket of fresh fruit in no time.

What did we pick from Cadron Creek Orchard?

We have picked fresh peaches and apples at Cadron Creek Orchard. They had tons of beautiful apples and peaches just waiting to be picked. When you arrive at the orchard, they tell you exactly what they are picking and where to go. They even give you a basket to fill.

What did we do with all our fresh peaches?

I am from the south which means I love sweet ice tea. What makes sweet ice tea even better is peach syrup. Which I made plenty of with the peaches we picked. I also made peach fritters and slow cooker peach butter.

And, of course, everybody’s favorite – Peach Ice Cream

Celebrate Cooking Together

Whether you are an ice cream lover, but can’t handle the lactose or you just want to cut fat and calories of your favorite sweet treat, I’ve got you. You can celebrate carving about 150 calories off your midnight snack if you make it my way.

Here’s what you need:

Top with your favorites. I used chia seeds, but could also use sprinkles, peanuts, or chocolate chips.

It’s pretty delicious and it makes a great healthy after-school snack too!

Ceri Wilkin A Matter of the Heart for Valentines {Foodie Friday}

By Ceri Wilkin of Recipe Doodle

From our first Valentines together, my husband and I have always cooked at home, a matter of the heart rather than the menu.

Initially it was simple, luscious pasta dishes, both of us inhabiting the kitchen, easily and joyfully cooking together. Then, as we moved out of our cocoon for two, and included friends in our celebration, the dinners became more complicated, transforming into elaborate, four course meals but still maintaining the fun and intensity from those evenings early in our relationship.

This year, I wanted to move outside of my comfort zone, to surprise and delight my wonderful husband and our friends. In relationships, food, and in life, I believe it is important to try new things. These recipes are an interesting, unexpected, surprising, but delicious and delightful mix of sweet and savory.
