Key Limes Are in Season

CBM - Key Lime Pie Slice

Just like apples, pecans, and other nuts, citrus fruits come into season in the fall and winter. So even though this recipe may appeal to many as a summer pie, because it is cool and refreshing, this is the best time to get fresh Key limes. For the recipe click here. Thanks for visiting.

It’s Time for Holiday Baking

Are you ready to begin your Holiday baking? This is a busy season for baking Christmas cookies, pies, candies, and cakes. I’m almost ready to begin.

CBM-Icing Drip

Closer to Christmas I will make my famous red velvet cake with cream cheese icing.

CBM - Peaked Icing

Well, it’s famous with family, friends, and neighbors, anyway.

 

 

The first thing I will make is my cookie dough for my favorite sugar cookies.

Then there is always pecan pie.

I can feel my arteries clogging up already. We really do try to maintain a healthy lifestyle the rest of the year, but at Christmastime, well, you know how it is. I have  tweaked these recipes to make them less unhealthy, while maintaining the texture and flavor. As I always say, everything in moderation, so enjoy the special holiday meals and parties, and eat healthfully in between parties.  Hello, New Year’s Resolutions!
