What’s your favorite flavor of summertime? I know – it’s a tough decision. Juicy watermelon. Fresh sweet corn. Ripe strawberries on the vine. There are so many iconic tastes for those hazy, lazy days of summer. But you know what? I think the refreshing, sweet-tart flavor of Key limes is pretty hard to beat on… CONTINUE READING »
After a rainy, cold start to what was supposed to be summer, we Minnesotans started to believe the sun forgot about us. Last week, we finally got to bask in some glorious summery temperatures.

They are easy to make, healthful and most importantly…delicious enough for my daughter to gush compliments!
