Berries and Cream

Hello everyone.  It's been a very eventful and sad week.  The tragedies and losses have been far too many.  I can't help but think of the families that are grieving the sudden and unexpected death of their loved ones and the many people who were injured.  My heart grows with sadness. I can only ask that we all keep these families in our prayers.
 
Now, I would like to share something sweet and heart warming.  It is a very scrumptious dessert featuring fruits swimming in a silky-smooth cream.  This fresh and fragrant Berries and Cream combo mixes strawberries and raspberries with whipping cream and sweetened condensed milk.  It is a great summer dessert, weekend treat or simply just because.  Surprisingly, it is very airy and light.  I don't mean low calories girls.  It is ok to indulge from time to time don't you think....  
  
I hope you enjoy the recipe.  Thank you for your visit.
