Frosty Key Lime Pie

My mom used to make what she would call “lemonade pies” during the summer back in Connecticut and they were my favorite dessert for August nights on the screened-in porch, after coming home from a long soccer practice.

Pear Almond Coffee Cake

It has been a while since I’ve posted, but we got a nice little rain storm this weekend which left me a little time to do some baking. The water turned a nice shade of brown (thanks to all the lovely runoff), and I usually like to stay out of the water for a few days when that happens (unlike Miles who was surfing in the rain yesterday).
