You can never go wrong with key lime pie and this recipe is a fun twist on a recipe my grandmother has been using for years. I remember even as a kid how incredible her key lime pie was and also, how easy she always said it was to throw together. "Only four ingredients," she'd say matter-of-factly as we each sat around the dinner table raving at the end result. And so, with that in mind, I thought it would be the perfect dessert to bring to my double Easter holiday parties this year as well as to the company pot luck and even to the very first memorial day party of the year!Read More
I LOVE BRUSSELS SPROUTS. But seriously, what don't they pair well with? I've had them every way you could possible imagine and yet, I'm always excited to try another variation.

We would gather in the kitchen, each of us designated our own personal pie and we'd begin loading our choice of toppings buffet style with feverish excitement. By the time we were done, our white doughy canvas' piled high with pepperoni and cheese looked less like a pizza and more like a work of high caloric art. The reverence pizza held in our minds, well, it never went away.Read More
I am the girl who jokes about my lack of culinary prowess.
Or at least I was.
And in honor of truly giving credit where credit is due, I have to hand over most of it to the man who changed my life when he walked into it over three years ago. Thanks to him, so many incredibly memories have been made around our table, in the careful hand selection of ingredients, loving preparation and act of enjoying a meal together.Read More
