Ma's Homemade Princess Fruit Dip

Some flavors define your childhood memories.  I remember picking black raspberries at my Gran's and gobbling as many as I could during those hot summer months and they remain my favorite berry to this day.  Every time I bite into one I remember her house and those wonderful hot afternoons picking berries with her.  

Today I'm sharing another fond memory with you.  Princess dip!  My Ma was a caterer and a cook her entire life so of course everything at her house was the bomb.  But as a kid one thing I always was on the lookout for was the princess dip!  It is SO good.  I would dip everything in it.  Fruit of course is what is for but as a kid I would pile as much as I could get away with on my plate and dip cookies and cakes and the occasional fruit in it and lick every last drop from my fingers.  There's nothing quite like Princess Dip to brighten up my day and help me feel connected to my family that lives so far away.  It was the one thing I HAD to have at my wedding from my Ma...that and her ribs of course. ;)

And I am NOT sorry.

Ma's Sweet Potato Pie

Spring is officially here and I am so excited to be planting and opening windows...and even deep cleaning my house.  BUT I am also sad to see my Fall and Winter decor and rich earthy tastes go until next year.  I decided to have a last hurrah and leave my snowflakes, snowmen and pinecones out for one more week.  I also baked one of my favorite treats from my childhood.  Sweet Potato Pie!
