I've Been on a Key Lime Kick


DBF gave me a bag of limes! Since he doesn't drink (especially tequila) the first thing to come to mind was, of course, Key Lime Pie!
I made one for Easter, I made one for work, I made one for a friend's baby shower, and I made one for DBF (and a few ramekins just for snacking)
Of all the Key Lime Camps, I belong to this one:
Graham Crust (as opposed to pastry), Eggs and cooking (instead of non-cook versions), whipped cream (vs. merangue.) I add a bunch of macnuts to the crust, and a ton of zest- everywhere! While technically these were Tahitian Limes (hybrided to our local citrus) I do like making this pie with actual Key Limes, but they are so tiny and labor-intensive. I would also like to try this recipe with lemons, oranges, grapefruits, calumundums...
Last Ramekin: Maybe I can find Bogart in "Key Largo" on cable...


The beautiful gardenias were also from DBF: He spoils me with them. He grows them and always makes sure the house is filled with them. What an awesome man! I should make him more pie...
