Easy and Delicious Berries and Cream Dessert

An Easy Crockpot Menu – Cajun Pork and Beans

Tips:

  • Before adding sauerkraut to a Reuben sandwich or on hot dogs, use a potato ricer to squeeze out all of the juice to prevent things from getting soggy.
  • For a different but delicious topping on fruits, soften and beat an 8 oz. package of cream cheese, Add a couple of cups of marshmallow creme to it. This can be used as a dip too.
  • For a less sweet frosting, mix a can of frosting and an 8 oz. package of softened cream cheese. This would also be a great dip for berries and fruit!

    This sounds a lot like a variation of what we would call refrigerator cake. You slice a loaf cake, then spread with a combo of some sort of creamy filling, and fresh berries. Stack the layers as you spread, cover with plastic wrap, chill overnight. Turn the loaf back on it’s side, and spread the rest with whipped cream. This also works, using cookies in place of the cake.

    I have been catching up on the news after some days away.
    Are you guys okay? They announced a huge fire in Colorado and it seems bad. Is it close to you or the smoke affecting Tawra?

    Also one of the regulars is from northern Ontario(can’t remember name offhand grandma?) and they have announced a mall roof collapse there and people missing. Are you okay?

    It’s like family and you worry sometimes when you hear stuff.

      So sweet of you to ask Erika. I worry too when I don’t hear from some of our regulars. Grandma is fine. She just posted some things yesterday. Tawra and them are about 30-40 miles from the one fire and are just getting a lot of smoke. The smoke detectors have been going off in the homes in their area from the smoke but the fire is burning north and away from them. I happened to be visiting Tawra the day it broke out and we were in the mountains and saw it before they had even started trying to put it out. We knew it didn’t look good at all.

      Sat. was a little hair raising because Mike and the boys went up to Estes to go hiking and was up there when that fire broke out but they made it down fine and Mike’s folks lived only a mile from the Estes fire and were on evacuation notice but they got it out pretty fast although they did lose about 25 homes.

      We’re fine, thanks for asking. We have some smoke now and then but considering how bad it is the smoke isn’t bad at…yet. :-) One broke out by Mike’s folks about 1 mile away from them on Sat. but thankfully they were able to pull the helicopters from the other big fire and put it out quick before the entire town of Estes Park went up in flames.

    I managed a Bakery/Deli several years ago. We used marshmellow creme and cream cheese whipped together as a dip for the fruit. It goes well with nearly all fruits.

    I like to put crushed pineapple and mashed bananas in cherry jello, let firm, then mix cream cheese with a jar of marshmallow cream and spread on top. Keep refrigerated. It is really good, you can do many variations with the jello and fruit. If I don’t have bananas and pineapple, I will use a large can of drained fruit cocktail.
