Recipe Exchanage for MMP Mother's Day Shop Hop

Hope everyone has been busy finding shopping bags! Aren't the boutiques some of the best shopping on the web? Just love this group.
Well, today is event # 1 of the Mother's Day Shop Hop. Recipe exchange Thursday. It's such a busy time of year, here's a really simple one that everyone seems to love.

DIP FOR STRAWBERRIES AND OTHER FRESH FRUIT
Take one 8ounce bar of cream cheese and one jar of Marshmallow Fluff and a teaspoon or two of vanilla. Beat on high speed of mixer until well blended and light and fluffy.
Here's another use for the chip and dip bowl. Put the dip in the bowl and surround with fresh strawberries and any other fresh fruit you enjoy.
I know, it sounds terrible--trust me on this one. The cream cheese cuts the sweetness of the Fluff and it is a truly delicious dip. This was shared with me by my sister in law, Susan Stevens.
Spring has finally sprung around this neck of the woods. It is just gorgeous outside. I never get tired of waking up one morning and seeing the green wisps on the trees. The tulips have finally opened, they are so pretty. Daffodils and hyacinths are almost done. With the windows open, the scent of the hyacinths comes wafting in--gorgeous!
Oh, have to tell you--one of the boutiques at Make Mine Pink, Beloved Creations, had a giveaway contest and I WON!! Janet, the owner, does beautiful hand embroidery and the prize is one of her hand-embroidered hankies. Such a lovely person to have such a special giveaway--can't wait to have one of my very own "Beloved Creations". Thank you so much, Janet. Please make sure you visit Janet's boutique, it's lovely.
Well, off to enjoy this wonderful weather. Everyone have a wonderful weekend and try that recipe--you'll be surprised at how good it is!
Hmm- blogger seems to be having some tech difficulties right now, so I can't get the link up for the Shop Hop. If you have time to search for some more shopping bags, you can use the link from the last post.

Hi Pat,
Thanks so much for visiting my blog.
No, I don't make housecalls, but I suppose you can't blame a pink sister for asking. :)

I'm pretty much doing that to every room in my house. Ugh.

Your strawberry dip sounds amazing. I don't need much of an excuse to eat strawberries, love them, but I will try this.

Hugs!
Christine
