Fun Food for Summer

Summer is here and outdoor grilling season is upon us. If you’re like me, you’re always looking for a new and tasty dish for friends and family to enjoy at each bbq. Here’s a quick and easy recipe for you to try that I know will be a crowd pleaser. 


Strawberry Cheesecake “Dump Cake” Recipe



2 (21 oz) cans strawberry pie filling I used the brand Lucky Leaf

1 (8 oz) container whipped cream cheese, original flavor

1 (15.25 oz) box vanilla cake mix (or yellow or white) I used french vanilla

1/2 cup butter melted



Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9×13 baking dish with a cooking spray.

Pour both cans of pie filling into bottom of baking dish and smooth out.

Place the whipped cream cheese in dabs all over the pie filling to cover.

In a medium bowl, mix together the dry cake mix and melted butter until nice and crumbly.

Sprinkle crumble mixture all over the mixture.

Place in preheated oven for 25 minutes or until sides are golden brown and pie filling is bubbly.

Serve with cool whip or ice cream. Enjoy.
