Key Lime Pie with Rum Infused Whipped Cream

Print PDF Key Lime Pie – For those who don’t know, I used to live in South Florida. I loved it there :D! They have amazing weather, the beach, a nice breeze all the time, generally happy friendly people and delicious Key Lime Pie. Aaaahhhhh, Key Lime Pie. Just the thought of it makes me long for a hammock between 2 palm trees and the sound of the ocean. One of the best things we used to do when I lived in Florida was to run off for a long weekend in Key West. And what do you eat when you’re in Key West? That’s right, conch chowder :D – but more importantly, you...

Carrot Cake – Only the Best You’ll Ever Have (and Grandma’s recipe)

Print PDF Carrot Cake - So, I’ve decided to make carrot cake for Easter. You know, Easter, bunnies, carrots, carrot cake – lol! This is another one of those great recipes that my Grandma passed down to me. I have added a few modifications, like I make mine whole wheat. Also, depending on my mood, I may add coconut, or Mandarin oranges or pineapple, or raisins, or different nuts. Like I said, it depends on my mood…… and what’s in the fridge or cabinet :D! This also happens to be one of Xavier’s (my husband’s) favorite cakes and my oldest...

Egg Rolls – Recipe

Print PDF The egg roll story/recipe (recipe follows)- I don’t think I’ve mentioned it before, but my step mother is from Thailand. I bring this up now because she is the one who taught me how to make egg rolls. It was the summer after 8th grade. I was living in Los Angeles with my mom and flew to my Dad’s for summer break. I had eaten egg rolls a number of times in the past, I am from Earth after all and was living in L.A., but this is the first time I remember having a homemade egg roll. Not the same. Don’t get me wrong, I have had some delicious egg rolls at...

Grandma’s Lasagna – Recipe

Print PDF Grandma’s Lasagna Recipe – The lasagna story (recipe follows) - When I was a little girl, one of my very favorite things to do was to go to my Grandma’s house. She spoiled us so much-just like a Grandma should and then some! I remember when I would go with my brother and sister, my Grandma would say “I’m making pie, what kind does everyone want?”. And I’m not talking about something out of the freezer, I’m talking about delicious, made from scratch, pie. We would each put in our individual order. My brother, apple, me, cherry, and...
