Key Lime Pie Martini

A fresh cocktail that tastes like the the classic key lime dessert. Fun to make just for you or for a party! The idea for this martini started when I posted my lemon meringue pie martini on social media and a friend commented she was going to try one with limes since she didn’t have

This baked halibut is a quick and easy one-pan meal that’s perfect for a weeknight dinner. Everything is cooked together on a baking sheet, which makes a great no-fuss meal.

Sheet Pan Chicken With potatoes and green beans

I made this for dinner tonight (with leftovers for lunch tomorrow). This would be an easy weeknight meal – I’ll definitely be making it again after work one night. I thought the green beans would be overcooked, but they came out perfectly. I feel like the amount of potatoes was a bit disproportionate to the

Lemon Meringue Pie

Lemon Meringue Pie

I love classic custard and meringue pies, especially lemon meringue and lime meringue pies. This recipe is perfect for summer, but let’s be honest, I make it year-round. The one in the picture is made in my vintage Pyrex fridge dish (approximately 8″ x 6.5″ x 2.5″), but I’ve also made it in a traditional
