I suppose you'd describe me as a foodie. I'm always buying recipe books and magazines. I've always got my ear to the ground for the latest best restaurant/chef. When my husband and I are dining at a restaurant I try to observe the dish to take notes. I look more like I'm dissecting my course rather then eating it. Preparing dishes is just something I love to do. I truly enjoy entertaining and preparing meals for my loved ones. I find a sense of joy and satisfaction as I see them savor the dishes I create.
This past week I went to our local supermarket. It's one of those trendy new grocery stores that is used as a test market for our area. Thankfully it's just down the street from the house. As I was browsing through the aisles I came across Nellie & Joe's Key West Lime Juice. Instantly I began reminincing of Key West. If you've never been to the Florida Keys I highly recommend booking a trip. It's so lovely, beautiful, and a lot of fun. Well, with the gloomy winter rain outside I just had to pick up this fun bottle of lime juice that made me yearn for summer days.
On the back of the bottle they have their infamous Key West Key Lime Pie recipe. I made it this weekend and it's delicious. My husband loved it and it was so easy to make. I believe this is one of the best Key Lime juices I've ever tasted. I went back to the store and purchased 3 more bottles.

Pour condensed milk into blender. Add cream cheese gradually, in small portions and mix until smooth. Add egg yolks and blend well. Pour in Nellie & Joe's Key West Lime Juice and continue blending until mixture is smooth. Pour the mixture into the graham cracker pie crust and bake at 350° for 10 minutes. After baking, let stand for 10 minutes before refrigerating.
For a zestier taste, always prepare the pie a day before you need it. Top with freshly whipped cream and garnish with fresh lime zest.
