This week, we went blueberry picking so consider this just the first of a few blueberry recipes. As we were making this, my 10-year-old joked that we were going to turn into blueberries with all the blueberries we’ve eaten this week. We laughed that we would have to be rolled out of the house like … More Blueberry Lemon Bread approved by Violet Beauregarde
After we were married, my husband and I lived in Milwaukee WI. I remember in my first few weeks in the new city, I didn’t work yet and would just drive around finding cool places to visit, places to eat, and I would always find myself in some not so great neighborhoods.

A few years ago, my mom started making this lime pie. She calls it Key Lime Pie as most lime pies are called, but it’s made with regular limes, not key limes. It’s so unbelievably simple to throw together and can be made well in advance and keeps well in your freezer for days, if … More Margarita Lime Pie – It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere, Right?
