"Funny Face"

Audrey Hepburn is one of my favorite people; she was so classy and very intelligent and always very modest. I tried to draw the Audrey Hepburn picture that Fred Astaire took at the beginning of "Funny Face." It's been a long time since I've drawn so it was a little rough, I need a little more practice, but I'm really happy with how the eyes turned out.

"I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles."
- Audrey Hepburn

Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries

This is just about as close to heaven as you can get: cheesecake stuffed strawberries. They might be one of my favorite treats, and it only took about 30 minutes to make.

  • 2 quarts fresh strawberries
  • 1 box Jello No Bake Cheesecake
  • Graham cracker crumbs
  • Chocolate for drizzling
  • Wash berries and hollow out the centers
  • Mix cheesecake according to directions. Put cheesecake into piping bag and fill each strawberry until slightly overfilled.
  • Dip into crushed graham crackers to coat the top
  • Drizzle with chocolate
These are addicting, I can't get over how good they are! I got this idea from http://juneberry-lane.blogspot.com/
