MY BIRTHDAY PIE....KEY LIME

Today is my Birthday and this is my Favorite PIE! I have been a Forever fan of Key Lime martinis. My mom went to a get together with her friends several years back and had the most amazing Key Lime pie so she decided to surprise me with it one year for my birthday! Well, can I tell you it’s probably the pie and dessert that I look forward to most each year! It is now a tradition. You guys, I have had a lot of pies, but I have never had a Key Lime pie as good as my mom’s! We think that it is the Nellie and Joe’s lime juice, which is like no other, as well as the sweetened condensed milk. If you like Key lime pie, this is a must! And the simplicity and ease of making it cannot be beat!




Throwback Cheers with my favorite Martini!

As you may know, yesterday was suppose to be spent shopping and lunching with my sweet mama but a darn dump truck running a red light nixed that but She's ok and thank you for your thoughts and Prayers! Well hit the stores next week when she feels better! Tomorrow, I am having lunch and more shop time with a dear friend. Today, I am spending quietly to reflect on my blessed life and tonight Mr. Nine is taking me to the restaurant voted number one in the state, which happens to be 10 minutes from our house. I cannot wait to take my time getting all dolled up and have a wonderful birthday meal with my man!

HAPPY TASTY TUESDAY!!

  4. Happiest Birthday to you my precious, precious friend! Oh how I wish I was there to celebrate with you. I have that same Key Lime pie recipe and it is the best - you are 100% correct, it's that Nellie & Joe's Key West Lime Juice and the sweetened condensed milk that makes it. Now even though I've made it before many times, trust me, mine have never been this beautiful! Your sweet mama decorated the pie so professionally!
    Have the very, very best birthday!!!! Love you to pieces!

  25. Happy Birthday Special Lady. You are rockin' at 48. I know how hard those balloons are to hold right first hand because we tried doing a shoot for my daughter's grad party (and it was breezy!). I'm glad to hear Mom is ok, how scary! That pie looks amazing. When we were in the Florida keys we had key lime pie at every restaurant we went to. They were all so good! Have fun tonight and enjoy your birthday MONTH! xo

  33. Today is a special day Andrea because it is your birthday! Even though, I have not met you, I love your uplifting, fun, sweet and kind personality. I wish you the best day today and I am sorry that you couldn't spend time with your mom. I am just glad she is okay and that you are keeping on the positive. I do me some key lime pie! I had a slice in Key West a long time ago and have been a fan. I have never been quite able to find a place that replicated the delicious taste since and I am happy to know that this recipe is it! I can't wait to make and let you know. In the meantime, the happiest of birthday to you Andrea and enjoy your wonderful dinner tonight. Wishing you many, many more!

It's your birthday today and I hope you had a fabulous day. Stay golden and know you are loved! xoxo Emily
