Awesomesauce Fruit Dip

Hi followers! I'm back with an actual recipe!  It's one of my oldest, favorite things that I learned from my mom. It's the easiest and most delicious fruit dip. We even have a German-sounding made up name for it. We call it Frutenglasa. To say it, the last "s" has to sound a bit like a "j" or "zh" sound.  It's great with strawberries or fruit salad. It's great with watermelon when it's hot during summertime. You can even smear it on crepes or a puff pancake, add some fruit and have a very elegant dish. Mom has a top secret, special change she does to this recipe that I will share, too.  For special occasions, she will substitute orange liqueur (like Cointreau, Grand Marnier, or Triple Sec) for the orange juice.  My last batch, I only subbed 1 tablespoon of Triple Sec and kept the other 2 as OJ. This stuff is almost addictive. And I have even stuffed it inside birthday cake as a filling layer. Super awesome stuff it is.

Your Bijoux Box May 2015

Their Mother's Day Edition was a real treat! So here's what came this month. They actually revealed two of the products in the sneak peak. The Meridian Silver Pendant was first. It's a great combination of light blue, crystal, opal and white stone. It's very long and looks especially cute with my white peasant blouse. Second, they revealed the Watercolor Scarf. It's a fantastic scarf, huge and lightweight with the softest fringe at the ends. I really love the ombre blue. Third and fourth are golden pave pieces. They sent the Pave Pyramid Studs and coordinating Pave Convertible Necklace. The necklace has three strands that can disconnect and be worn in different combinations. Versatility is great!  I was honestly happily surprised to see these in the box. I was
