It’s all about dreams this week. The weather is getting warmer and I’m dreaming of a cool fruit dessert that doesn’t keep me in the kitchen all day. Kimberly Dean brought over just the thing – a super-simple, refreshing strawberry pie. Make sure you scroll down to check out the dreamy blurb from her new novel, Dream Man and enter her giveaway for an adorable dreaming bear decoration.
I’m all about keeping things simple. I don’t have enough time or patience to make anything fancy, especially when it comes to food. It’s usually gone so quickly, it just doesn’t make sense. The funny thing is, people don’t often notice the difference. They just know what they like!
The following recipe has been a big hit for me, and it’s easy to make. It’s a refreshing dessert that looks so pretty, I even made it for Easter Sunday dinner. Now my family is dreaming about it. 😉
Strawberry Dream Pie Recipe
8-oz package of cream cheese, softened
1/3 c. strawberry preserves
1 ½ c. whipped topping, thawed
9-in. ready-made graham cracker crust
½ c. sliced fresh strawberries (for pie)
1 c. fresh strawberries (for topping)
2 t. white sugar
2 t. grenadine syrup
Mix the softened cream cheese and the strawberry preserves with a hand blender. Fold in the sliced strawberries and whipped cream. Pour mixture into the pie crust, smooth, and set aside.
Using a food processor or blender, blend the strawberries, grenadine syrup, and sugar until just chunky. Pour atop the pie. Chill until set in refrigerator. (Min. 2 hours)
Slice, serve, and dream.
Dream Man – Dream Weavers Book 1
Each night, Devon Bradshaw dreams of him – her fantasy lover. She can feel his heated gaze on her and hear his deep breaths, yet as consuming as their shared desire is, they can’t connect.
Until she performs a love spell.
Cael Oneiros is stunned when Devon appears on his cosmic plane. For months, he’s watched over her as her Dream Weaver. As a sleeper assigned to his care, his job has been to lead the beautiful redhead into REM sleep. Visiting her each night, though, has led to deeper feelings. He wasn’t supposed to fall in love with her, but he has.
Now every night Devon visits Cael, their connection grows – but even the most innocent of spells can have repercussions. All around town, people are acting strangely. Tempers are short, and chaos is starting to reign. Nobody is dreaming. Nobody except Devon.
When her dream man shows up in flesh and blood, she has to decide if he’s really the man of her heart… or the demon of her dreams.
