Week 15: Fruit Dip

Standard

Once again, I am blogging late.  I was delayed from last week.  It was Easter weekend then our Spring Break.  We hosted our families and friends on Easter, which was a lovely day.  The weather allowed us to eat on the patio and enjoy dessert and conversation outside too.  The day after we headed to San Diego for a few days.  Sunday afternoon, I did a quick grocery store run to fill up the refrigerator again.  When I did, I bought a brick of cream cheese.  When I got home, I dumped it in my Kitchen Aid bowl and turned it on.  Once it was creamy, I added a cup of brown sugar and a Tablespoon of vanilla extract.  After a few minutes, we had fruit dip.  Only two of my kids tried it.  One didn’t like it and the other thought it was yummy but a bit too sweet.  I, on the other hand, loved it.  As you can see from my picture of my creation, it isn’t so pretty to look at.  The picture from the website looked a bit less brown.  Not sure how to make it look pretty, maybe you can’t, but the taste will woo your guests.  It’s a quick, easy, yummy, option for a party.  I ate it with apples.  I remember making something like this years ago.  I don’t remember it looking this brown either, but remember it was good.  Not that fruit needs a dip, but if your strawberries are store-bought, most likely they need a boost these days.  Mine fruits have been so bland.  However, we bought fresh strawberries in Carlsbad and those were delicious.  No dip required.  So if you find yourself with bland fruit, whip up a quick fruit dip and restore the sweetness.

I hope your Easter weekend was joy-filled.  We truly enjoyed one another and our traditions.  One of my favorite hymns is always sung that day too “Christ the Lord is Risen Today.”  So powerful.  I hope you were able to experience the sweetness of Christ’s resurrection.  Don’t wait until next Easter to taste it again.  He is risen.  He is risen, indeed!

Dream Big!

P.S. The print is a bit hard to read.  It honestly is just cream 8 oz of cream cheese, add 1 cup brown sugar and 1 Tablespoon of vanilla extract.
