A summery recipe I found in my First for Women magazine a while back..hope you'll enjoy it!

Strawberry Cheesecake Parfait

In a food processor, puree 2 pkgs. (8 oz. each) cream cheese at room temp, 1/3 cup sugar, 1/4 cup half-and-half, 2 Tbsp. orange juice, 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract and 1/4 tsp. orange zest 1 minute or until smooth.  Set aside.  Prepare 1 box (3 oz) strawberry gelatin according to package directions, reducing cold water by 1/2 cup; stir in 1 cup pureed strawberries and 1/4 cup cream cheese mixture.  Divide gelatin mixture evenly among 6 dessert glasses.  Chill 1 hr.  Divide remaining cream cheese mixture among glasses.  Chill until gelatin mixture is set or until ready to serve.  Garnish with fresh strawberries and cookies, if desired.

What are your favorite things about summer?
