I have put together a couple of key lime dessert recipes that may just hit the spot. Now while I love key lime, I am not a fan of zesting those little suckers.

It’s hot and sticky this time of year and I try to avoid turning on my oven. However, you will have to turn on your oven to make these yummy toasted coconut and key lime marshmallows but it will only be for a few minutes. This is the perfect dessert that won’t heat up your kitchen.  Head over to  Around My Family Table to access the recipe and directions.

  • Add an extra tablespoon of orange blossom honey to the graham cracker recipe. My assistant Hayley swears by it

      It’s funny last year was the first time I have ever had key lime. My friend loves it and asked me to make something.
