Here's Hope! (but no change) AND something special for Moms

Nope, this is NOT a political blog (except for the title)!  We just thought this was a very pretty picture of Hope - who picks BEAUTIFUL strawberries - and her buckets.   Lovely symmetry, isn't it? 
There's Hope at the end of her row  - she picked a zillion more berries than I ever could :)

Wouldn't these be wonderfully yummy for Mother's Day?  You can check out her blog for more pictures.  Just cut off the top and hollow out the strawberry a tiny bit. 

Chocolate Cream Filling (from Taste of Home)

  • 1-1/2 ounces semisweet chocolate, grated, divided
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup whipped topping


  • Set aside 2 tablespoons chocolate. In a microwave, melt remaining chocolate; stir until smooth. Cool to room temperature.
  • In a small bowl, beat cream cheese and vanilla until smooth. Beat in melted chocolate. Fold in whipped topping and 1 tablespoon reserved chocolate. Cut a small hole in the corner of pastry or plastic bag; insert #21 star pastry tip. Fill the bag with cream cheese mixture.
  •  Pipe cream cheese mixture into strawberries. (Star #21 tip makes them really pretty)
This recipe will make over 3 dozen strawberries.

Top with whipped cream.   You can slice off a bit of the tip so they will stand upright on a fancy plate.   Enjoy them for me (still trying to get to my next 10% weight loss)!
