Key Lime Pie

27 Apr

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!!!

Here is the recipe and link: Continue reading

Corn with Jalapenos

20 Apr

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.

This an excellent tip I learned from Rachael Ray on cutting corn off the cob. You place a small bowl upside down inside a large bowl and place the corn on top of the small bowl. When cutting all of the corn fall into the large bowl.


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.
