Cilantro Lime Rice

Cilantro lime rice is simple one pot dish that is full of robust flavors. Sauteed onions, garlic and ginger adds an aromatic and savory touch to the rice. The rice is then lightly toasted in butter, cooked in chicken broth and infused with lime zest to add flavor and a refreshing twist. The rice is then fluffed with chopped cilantro and fresh lime juice to brighten up the dish. It's a decadent way to dress up rice and wonderful served with sauteed shrimp.

Key Lime Pie

Spring is here and I can't think of a better dessert to have then a tart Key Lime Pie. The graham cracker crust is filled with a silky, creamy lime filling that is bright and fresh. The lime zest incorporated into the filling and sprinkled on top of the pie adds an extra pop of flavor, color and fresh lime aroma. The pie is topped with sweeten whipped cream to help cut the tartness. I think this pie is great for a beautiful spring brunch and would be great for Easter. I plan on making this recipe through the summer months. It's easy to make; the hard part is waiting for the pie to chill and set up before you devour it!
