Virgin Mojitos

Since my daughter had an upset stomach and a bad school day, I figured a little light, refreshing, minty beverage might be a welcome relief. Plus, it was as good an excuse as any to make this fun beverage I have been craving for a while now.

Key Lime Sugar Cookie Bars

Someday I’m going to come up with a fantastic Key Lime Pie recipe. In the meantime, I really want that sweet lime flavor in a cookie.

Lemon Ricotta Cookies

You’d think having a cookie blog would be enough, right? I bake cookies, desserts, and snacks every week. The kids eat them like they’re going out of style. And still the doctor says things like, “No restrictions on his diet, let him eat whatever he wants.” I hope what he wants is Lemon Ricotta Cookies. Because that’s what I have.

Key Lime Fruit Dip

I know I should feel flattered when my family says, “Wow, this is good!” with surprise in their voices, after trying my latest dessert/snack concoction. But I don’t. I feel kind of offended that they would be surprised.

Coconut Lime Poke Cake

Then I remembered the time I made Coconut Lime Sugar Cookies and decided I needed that flavor combination in my life again. So it really could not be a lime poke cake. It HAD to be a Coconut Lime Poke Cake. It was the only choice.

Lime Thyme Mocktail

Pin ItMost of the time, I’m completely fine with my decision to be a non-drinker.  But, it does present it’s awkward moments.

Lime Cream Cheese Wontons

Pin ItIn the twelve years we have lived in our home, we have had some strange experiences with pesky animals.  The worst, for me, are the mice.  Because I’m a mouseophobe.  Or rodentophobe.  Wait, I’m not afraid of hamsters or squirrels.  Let’s stick with mouseophobe.  And ratophobe. I. HATE. Mice.  I can’t word that strongly [Read On]

Chunky Guacamole and Fresh Corn Chips

Pin ItA recipe for a fresh and chunky guacamole and corn chips. Saturdays were made for snacking.  And so was guacamole.  I didn’t come to love guacamole until later in life.  I was influenced in this by my brother, who spent some time in South America and came home with a love affair with avocados.

Lemon Crinkles

It’s spring, which for us means it’s time to plant… at my mother-in-law’s house. My husband had a busy Saturday planned, but scrapped it all to spend the day working in his mother’s yard, spreading mulch and planting the large garden she had recently purchased. Time is of the essence with plants, you know. He called to request my help. I told him I would be right over, which was kind of a lie. I baked cookies first.

Handmade Cranberry Lime Sodas

Pin ItFor the most part, I have kept this blog about cookies, and nothing else.  Today, however, I thought I would share a recipe or two that I have made for the holiday season.  I started making these homemade lime sodas a few months ago, and just love them.  For Christmas gifts, I decided to [Read On]
