It’s time to celebrate the Fourth of July, and what better way to salute our country than with a delicious red, white, and blue dessert! Blueberries, raspberries, and white chocolate chips make a scrumptious dessert quesadilla that is easy to prepare and grill. It’s easy – after the family BBQ, keep the grill warm and treat your family and guests to a nutritious fruity dessert made using healthy ingredients with the GrillGrate!
Four Flour Tortillas
Cup of white chocolate morsels
Cup of fresh raspberries
Cup of fresh blueberries
Making the Filling
8 ounce container whole ricotta cheese
1/2 cup confectioners sugar
2 tsp vanilla
Whirl in a food processor. This makes the filling for two quesadillas.
Making The Quesadilla
Spread 1/3 of the filling on one tortilla (this is the bottom).
Sprinkle semi-sweet morsels.
Place 2nd tortilla on top.
Spread light film of filling.
Decorate top with raspberries and blueberries.
Add a few more white chocolate morsels.
Grilling the Quesadilla
Medium Heat 400 F.
Use a grilling spray or wipe the raised rails with oil.
Slide the Quesadilla off the cutting board onto the GrillGrates. Close lid.
Check in 3-4 minutes by slightly lifting an edge to see the sear marks.
Quarter turn if dark searing or wait and quarter turn in 1-2 minutes. Close lid.
Determine whether to give it a couple of more minutes or off it comes onto the cutting board.
Let stand for 2 minutes.
Cut and Serve

I’m always excited to be a panelist for our WWEMoms Twitter parties, we have so much fun, and always bring awareness to other aspects of the WWE besides entertainment and wrestling.
This month, as Father’s day approaches we’re going to host a special WWEMoms and WWEDads Twitter party with special guest (my boyfriend 😉 ) Titus O’Neil!
Titus is half of the Prime Time Players Tag Team, and now Tag Team Champion (which I have a beef with because that was my other ‘boyfriends’ title 😉 )! Titus is also a great Father to two boys, who if you follow his Twitter and Instagram accounts, you can see the love he has for his boys and family as a whole.
Last year you may have seen WWE Superstars Titus O’Neil and Roman Reigns videos for the Ad Council. Again WWE has joined the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Administration for Children and Families’ office of Family Assistance, the National Responsible Fatherhood Clearinghouse, and the Ad Council to help inspire dads throughout the country to get involved in their childrens lives, and to encourage dads to recognize their role and give them resources to get them more involved.
The campaign communicates to fathers that their presence is essential to their children’s well-being and emphasizes that “the smallest moments can have the biggest impact on a child’s life.”
Come join us for this special Twitter Event and celebrate Fatherhood!
You must RSVP first, and then attend to be eligible to have a chance to win some great prizes!

As I just woke up from a nap, trying to get rid of my damn headache, I came upon the news that Dusty Rhodes had passed away. This is a shocker, and so sad.
