Super Simple Key Lime Pie

Super Simple Key Lime Pie |
You know when it’s the end of October and November is just around the corner and you’re all like, “I don’t want winter to be here,” so you think of the summery-est dessert you can and make it?

Yup.  Just happened.  The end of October just screams Key Lime Pie, doesn’t it?  No?

You guys, how in the world is summer overrrrrrrrr?  That had to have been the shortest summer on record.  My summer went like this:  5 year old birthday party, June at the ballfields, vacation at the beach, back to school, boom.  Now the leaves are falling off the trees and there’s not a darn thing I can do about it.

Luckily I received a bag of key limes in my produce delivery.  And luckily I had a full carton of whipping cream in the fridge.

If we’re being honest thought, that’s really only half true.  I DO like bacon, but I do NOT like chewy, gummy bacon.  I like it verrrrrrry crispy.  Otherwise, forget it. Know what else I like?  Biscuits.  So, you know -might was well combine them, [...]

The Ultimate Peanut Butter Chocolate Cake

So, yeah.  This might be a bit over the top.  It’s also messy, frumpy, and haphazard. But really, who cares?  When it comes to chocolate and peanut butter, you just can’t go wrong.  You just can’t.  And honestly, I love a cake that looks homemade.  I love soft, fluffy frosting, irregular and imperfect frosting techniques [...]

Three Layer Oreo Bars

So my life goes like this:  yesterday my husband was out with his buddies, so I had an evening to myself.  The girls went to bed at 8pm, and I marched right now the stairs, made a big glass of iced tea, bought the girliest-chick-flick ever, and pulled out my big stack of neglected magazines.  It was ... read more
