Real Woman Of Philadelphia Spokesperson

Hi Everyone!!!

I am so excited to come to you to announce that Paula Dean and the Real Women of Philadelphia are looking for a spokesperson to cheer on the top 16 contestants in their Real Women of Philadelphia contest.  This contest, which is really a casting for the next new cooking stars, began 8 weeks ago and is going strong.  The interesting thing is that in the beginning they were simply looking for cooks, but since there have been so many women who "got on the band wagon" about how much fun this has been and about cooking with Philadelphia Cream Cheese, they decided to add a spokesperson.

I am really hoping that I can become that person.  There are so many wonderful and qualified women who want the same thing.  Most of them have become my friends...so it's a little difficult trying to take a position that someone else who you care for wants too.  So, the question is what to do???  Well, I know we are all going to give our best and then if by some chance it turns out to not be me, I for one am going to cheer on the cheerleader....in other words, be happy for her and support her in any way I can. 

So, you might be the next spokesperson for The Real Women of Philadelphia, but you can't  achieve that if you don't go on the web site and try.  So be sure to hurry and go to http://www.realwomenofphiladelphia.com/ and submit a recipe or try to become their spokesperson.  Most of all, go on the site and cheer for the girls who are trying and look up some great recipes.  Paula sends personal messages to all of us that are heartwarming and loving.  She really does care about her fans and friends.   

Don't miss out on this wonderful opportunity to join a community that's more like a family.  These chances don't come around very often and I believe you need to step through the door when it opens.    Look for more great recipes and tips from others on the site and don't forget to buy your Kraft Philadelphia Cream Cheese and get to cookin'!

Love and Blessings,

“The “Debbie” recipe – the recipe that is authentically me.
My absolute favorite dessert recipe.”
All I ever talk about loving is strawberries. I am to strawberries as Paula Deen is to potatoes and butter.
When thinking about my absolute favorite dessert, it had to combine cheesecake, strawberries, and chocolate. Chocolate covered strawberries to be exact!!! So I developed a pie that features all my weaknesses. I love a regular pie crust instead of graham cracker so I have used pie crust, topped with a luscious layer of Kraft Philadelphia Ready-to-Eat Cheesecake Filling, followed by 1 pound of ripe, juicy strawberries enveloped in strawberry glaze topped with creamy, dreamy Cool Whip, and followed by 6 GIANT chocolate covered strawberries. This pie would be a strawberry lovers’ most decadent dream. It is mine…now you know what I dream about.

Strawberry Heaven
Prep time: 50 minutes Cook time: 9 minutes
Serves 6 - 8
1 refrigerated pie crust
1 ½ c. Kraft Philadelphia Ready-to-Eat Cheesecake Filling
2 lbs. of strawberries
14 oz. strawberry pie glaze
8 oz Cool Whip
¾ c. semi-sweet chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
2. Place pie crust in pie pan and flute edges. Bake at 450 degrees for 9 minutes.
3. Cool pie crust at room temperature for 10 minutes and follow in freezer for 10 minutes to cool quickly.
4. While pie crust is cooking and cooling, prepare other ingredients beginning with strawberries. Wash strawberries, core, and slice in half. Save 6 LARGE strawberries for top of pie. Eat a few and enjoy them while you are working so hard. Save enough for the pie.
5. Melt chocolate chips in microwave for approximately 1 minute stirring every 20 seconds. Dip 6 large strawberries in chocolate about ¾ of the way up the strawberry. Place a piece of parchment paper on a plate and cool the strawberries on the paper in the freezer.
6. After the pie crust comes out of the freezer, spread the cheesecake filling directly on top of crust.
7. Place strawberries directly on top of cheesecake and pour strawberry glaze over strawberries.
8. Pipe Cool Whip over strawberries and glaze and top with chocolate covered strawberries. Place in freezer for approximately 15 minutes and serve. Refrigerate any leftovers.
