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!

Sweet Potato Pie

Recipe for Sweet Pototo Pie, a true Southern tradition. It may look a lot like pumpkin pie, but it's completely different. It's a bit denser and has a great depth of flavor. The cinnamon compliments the sweet potato filling but doesn't overpower it. I pair this pie with a cinnamon whipped cream - which is probably not very Southern, but a little heavy whipping cream makes everything taste better.
