Raspberries and Cream

I love raspberries.
Love them.


Raspberries and Blueberries

We grow our own raspberries in our backyard.
We have the type that produce berries twice a year.
Double the pleasure!


Garden Fresh

I am always on the lookout for a good raspberry recipe.
Instead of something new,
this time I modified a tried and true recipe.
It was a success.
And it is very easy.

And I planned on taking pics
of the finished recipe for this post.
Real life got in the way
and I haven't had time to make it.
So I was going to make it just now
and the cream cheese is gone.

At least I won't have to worry
about the calories of eating it now.
I guess I'll just have to pick more berries.

**************
Raspberry and Cream Pie
Prepare a 9" Pie Plate
Combine the following ingredients:
3/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
3 tablespoons dry vanilla pudding* 
(*I've used both instant or cook variety 
and don't see a difference.)
3 tablespoons soft butter 
1 egg
1/2 cup milk 

Pour batter into the pie plate.
Cover batter with 15-20 oz frozen, drained, save juice*
 OR 2 cups fresh raspberries. 

Beat together for 2 minutes:
8 ounces cream cheese 
(Either regular or low fat.) 
1/2 cup sugar 
Saved raspberry juice* if using frozen raspberries 
(If you don't have raspberry juice
you can thin with a few tablespoons water.)

Spoon the cream cheese mixture over the raspberries
to within 1 inch of the edge of the pie plate.

Bake 350 for 30-35 minutes

When cool, top with dark chocolate shavings. (Optional)

Please Don't Wake Me...

...I am in the middle of a Jane Austen dream.
Darcy, Elizabeth, Emma, Bingley, Elinor, Edward...
you know the cast.
They are all here.



But for me, 
more importantly, 
I am surrounded by 
Barton Cottage, Mansfield Park, Rosings Park, Upper Cross Hall. 
Oh, and of course, 
my favorite Pemberley.

Oh, the architecture.
Oh, the Austen drama.

Dang,
I am not in England,
I am in New Jersey
at Princeton University.
This campus transports me to other places.
So if you can't find me,
look in the pages of an Austen novel.
I'll see you there.

The Boys Are Back In Town

"Guess who just got back today? 
Those wild eyed boys that had been away."

Those wild eyes boys
just returned from Senior Week.
Ahhhhh, that means
there is happy noise in the house again.
All is well...
until those wild eyed boys leave for college.
