When it comes to summer desserts, key lime pie has always been one of my favorites. I am so excited to make one of my own. When looking for recipes I found bars, tarts, pies, cakes and various other desserts all using the juice from the key limes. One of my friends let me know about a Paula Deen recipe she has tried and loved. This is the one I am going to try. If anybody has a great recipe they are trying, please share at PBG Recipe Swappers. I am ready to go make a pie!!!
Boxes this week include potatoes, asparagus, oranges, mangoes, key limes, zucchini, bananas, cabbage, kiwi and green beans. Our next box is next Tuesday, May 1st. Remember boxes will be only be $10 beginning next week for the month of May. This means that they will be a little bit smaller. Enjoy and we look forward to a great summer with lots of fresh produce!!!
One of our produce box girls, Cara, shared this recipe with us in the fall when we had corn on the cob in our boxes. It was the perfect fit for this week’s box. Here is a link to original recipe. I adapted it a little to make it fit my family and the ingredients I had on hand.
1. Cut corn off the cob.
2. Add 1 jalapeno (seeded), 1/3 yellow onion, 1/2 red pepper chopped
3. Add 2 TBSP butter
4. Cook on High for 4-5 minutes in microwave.
My family really enjoyed this recipe when we ate it before and are looking forward to trying it again.
Avocados are a great addition to our boxes when they are available. Laura loves using them for her BLATs (Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato, and Avocado Sandwiches) and Kasey often uses hers to make home-made guacamole. But how do you know when they are ready to use? Read the rest of this entry
