Strawberries + Nutella = Delicious!

There's not much better than freshly picked strawberries straight from the field....but add in a little nuttela and wowsers. The flavor is amazing!

One of my friends put this as link on facebook on Monday and I decided I had to make them. I went out today and picked a bucket full of fresh strawberries. Wowsers these are good! and I was not disappointed. Head over to Two Peas and their Pod for the delcious recipe. You'll be glad you did!

P.S. It's amazing how the Lord already had me plan to make these treats today. Today my husband came home from class and informed me he'd like to bring in breakfast for class tomorrow. Yep, I already had it covered!

Its Strawberry Season!

There's not much better than freshly picked strawberries that you collected yourself. I love living in an area that they are so plentiful. This year we tried our hand at some freezer jam. The recipe we used was on the box of pectin and was SO easy!

This is actually the second time I've made this pie in the last month. I love how easy and simple it is. Plus its not over the top sweet. Just right for my taste buds!

Here's the recipe: (Taken from a Farm Fresh advertisement book which I picked up for the coupons. Double bonus since this recipe is SO good!)

Strawberry and Cream Pie
1 deep dish pie crust
1/2 (8 oz) package cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 (8 oz) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
16 oz fresh strawberries, cut in half

Prepare pie crust according to empty baked crust package directions; cool. In medium mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, sugar and vanilla; mix with electric mixer until well combined and smooth.

Add in whipped topping and continue mixing until well combined and fluffy. Spread into cooled pie crust.

Top with Strawberries cut side down. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

*Note: I've always doubled the recipe. Most of the ingredients are cut in half so its "easier" that way. Haven't tried it yet because I'm lazy, but I think that it would be even more delicious with a homemade crust. But then again I think almost everything's better homemade!

Hope you have a great weekend and enjoy picking some fresh strawberries if they are ripe in your area!

P.S. If you were interested in the chalkboard labels I posted about in my last post (which was almost a month ago!! Opps.), they are today's GroupDealz again! $4 for 4! Looks like you still have a couple of days to jump on the deal if you are interested. We love ours!!
