As a child, Edwin's mom told him, "If you want to eat, you should cook it yourself." And that's exactly what he's been doing ever since.

Marriage of Summer Fruits with Cream Cheese

Here's a quick and easy frozen dessert that is perfect for the summertime. It combines fresh bananas, strawberries, and canned pineapples. I learned how to make this from my sister-in-law, who originally got the recipe from a friend of hers when she used to live in the Chicago area. This dessert has become a favorite in my sister-in-law's family; every time there's a family gathering, she makes it. I liked it so much when I tried it, I asked for the recipe.

When I returned home to California, I decided to give the recipe a try. I ran into difficulty during my first attempt because the cream cheese was lumpy. That's when I learned you have to let the cream cheese reach room temperature first. I also had to buy a food scale to weigh the ingredients. Although the original recipe did not call for garnishes, I added sliced strawberries and bananas to make it look more attractive.

Every time I make it, I intend to try variations to make it a little different each time. Try it out, and make it your own! I hope you enjoy it.
