Grape Salad (Take recipe cards for this with you to the picnic)

My aunt made this grape salad a while back for a picnic, and I thought it was so delicious and asked for the recipe.  I made it for a picnic at my friends house.  I had to e-mail the recipe to several people the next day.  After hearing that the reception after church after the baptism was a pot luck, I decided to make this.  The bowl was scraped clean and was the talk of the luncheon, with several requests for the recipes.  If you want to be proactive and really wow your friends and family, pre type up some recipe cards for the inevitable, “who made that”, “can you send me the recipe” because you will hear it!  Or of course, you can direct them to my blog to get the recipe!

4-5 pounds grapes (I mix half green and half purple)

1 cup sour cream (I used lite)

1 TBS vanilla

1 block cream cheese (I used 1/3 less fat)

1/2 cup sugar

3/4 cup brown sugar

3/4 cup chopped pecans

Rinse the grapes and mix them in a large bowl.  Mix the sour cream with the vanilla in one bowl.  In a separate bowl mix the cream cheese and sugar.  (You do have to do this in 2 steps)  Then combine the sour cream mixture with the cream cheese.  Pour over the grapes and mix.  Combine the brown sugar and pecans and spread over the grapes.  It tastes best when you do this the night before because it gives the brown sugar and pecans a chance to caramelize a bit.

I am just a girl who loves to cook. I am happiest when friends and/ or family are sitting around my table enjoying a meal and sharing stories and laughter! I noticed myself spending a lot of time reading recipe sites, food blogs and cook books and finally decided to get in on the action! I am very much an amateur cook, and through the last couple of years have learned a lot through trial and error. So, I would like to invite you to join in my culinary triumphs and laugh at my kitchen disasters! I welcome any tips/ advice/ and comments that you may have!
