Being a career woman, wife, mom and grandmother, I love recipes that I can whip together quickly that taste great and everyone raves about. This is one of them. The ease of this one after working all day is the perfect solution for that busy housewife or career woman. This filling is rich and creamy, the strawberries accent the flavors and the whipped cream homemade or store bought just makes the perfect combination of flavors. When I get home after a long day this dessert is often made and everyone always wonder how I find the time. Guess what it takes 5 minutes to whip up. Sometimes store bought has to work, plus it's my birthday and my favorite!

Our Italian style dinner coming right up see the links below!
There are two favorite pies I made for my dad often years ago, Red Raspberry and Pineapple. The memories I have of him always bring me to wonderful and cherished moments in my life when baking and this is one he would rave to his friends about.
He would share this pie with a very close friend that also was his neighbor, his name was Cosmo. They loved playing cards together and enjoyed each others company. Both have long since passed. He was very good to the family, my kids when the were younger and very generous friend to all of us. Cosmo would call me and offer to pay me for this pie he liked it so much and I told him I would be happy to make this for him anytime he wanted, of course out of the close friendship he had with dad and all he did for us, I would never have accepted payment. The praise from them both was enough for me! The look on both his and Dad's face eating it always brings a smile to my face and so worth the memories I cherish those memories and finally glad I made this again after all these years. I haven't made it since they both passed. Today I needed to remember them and smiling with those memories of both and sharing this pie with my family and the great memories of those days.
This one's for you daddy and Cosmo! R. I. P.

Boiled first then baked... infused with delicious herbs. Here is the perfect side for any meat meal you have.
This is a basic stew you can add what ever you like to. This is my version. This one has lamb in it but you can use any kind of meat you like or none at all. Sop up the juices with some great crusty Italian bread and you will have the perfect meal! What really happened was I bought some awesome lamb steaks, they were cut from the leg. Well after marinating them they still weren't tender so the meat went into this stew. Don't ever throw out tough meat this is what should have next after a disappointing meal, stew!
