- 1 Quart of Fresh Strawberries
- 1 8 OZ Package of Cream Cheese
- 1 Tablespoon of Vanilla
- 1 Package of Animal Crackers (my family likes the chocolate ones)
- 1 Large Bowl
- 1 Knife
- Paper Towel
- 1 Serving Plate
- 1 Measuring Spoon
- 1 Hand Mixer
- 1 Icing Decorator
Wash the strawberries and cut off the stem/leaves. Use the largest berries for the containers, reserving the smaller ones for the filling. Cut the bottom off of the berries so they can sit flat on a plate and hollow out the center so it can hold the filling. Place the “container” berries on the paper towel. This helps them to dry a bit so the juices do not run off onto the plate after they are filled.
In a bowl blend the cream cheese, vanilla, and small strawberries. After it is well blended, put the mixture into the icing decorator and fill the container berries.
Place the filled berries on the plate and top with an animal cracker of your choice.
Praise for Heart & Mind:
“The author has managed to weave an intricate web about being true to yourself. One shouldn’t be guided or led by others. Above all, feel the magic in your own heart. As the fairy godmother believes sometimes it is best not to mess with destiny.” –Chief, USN Ret…VT Town—a Top 500 Reviewer on Amazon.com
Praise for The World In Front of Me:
“Picked up this short story because I noted it was previously published in Penumbra, which was a pretty high quality publication. And this story lived up to my expectations for a professional quality piece.
The story’s main idea reminded me a lot of the Lakeside community in Neil Gaimon’s American Gods, but I won’t say anymore about that for fear of giving away spoilers. But fans of Gaimon should really enjoy this story. Fans of strong women who make tough choices should enjoy this as well”—KSluss—Review on Amazon.com
Praise for Going Home:
“This is an excellent short story that is full of surprises for the reader. Martial law is about to be imposed in the colony.
A secret room, trips on a train and a clandestine meeting are all part of this superb short story.
Most highly recommended”—Off Grid . . . And Loving It—a Top 500 Reviewer on Amazon.com
Praise for Wonderland:
“The writing is beautiful, the characters are complex and thoroughly developed and the story is fascinating. All of it together creates a world you don’t want to leave when the book ends. I am so glad I discovered this author and I cannot wait for her next book”—Mary—Review on Amazon.com
