Key Lime Tiramisu

Key Lime Pie is easily my favorite dessert. I will pass on chocolate anyday over Key Lime. My native Florida roots are showing. For this recipe, I wanted several things- a no bake/ make ahead dessert, key limes, but light, tart, sour and sweet. Yikes! That’s a big bill to […]

Tzatiki- The simple sauce that elevates everything

Got a cucumber and some greek yogurt in the fridge? Then you have the base for a creamy, fresh and bright dip/sauce/dressing that elevates every meal. This is THE best recipe for Tzatiki. It is really thick and creamy. Actually, I use Siggi’s Icelandic yogurt– it is really thick and […]

Rustic Apple Pie

My secret is out- I am not the best at creating a gorgeous pie crust. But… I do make an incredibly delicious pie crust. It is buttery, flakey, and with a pile of spiced apples baked inside, you won’t care what it looks like. This apple pie uses Honeycrisp and […]

Homemade Vanilla Almond Milk

Almond milk is one of those items that once you make it at home for pennies an ounce, you’ll wonder why you ever paid upwards of $4.00 a half gallon for it. It requires 5 ingredients: raw almonds, dates, vanilla, cinnamon and water. Yep- water. Nothing fancy and nothing you […]

Boozy Celtic Coffee

Hunky Hubbie and I LOVE Bailey’s on ice after dinner. It is my favorite dessert. I rather have a dram of Bailey’s than almost any dessert other than Key Lime Pie. This summer I wanted to create a little after dinner dessert cocktail that had a touch of coffee, a […]
