Tonight I made Emeril's Key Lime Pie. This was actually my first time making a pie, if you can believe it. I've made every other dessert out there, but not pie!

It was easy, but I used store-bought lime juice. The little lime I bought for the zest also had major problems and I could barely get any zest out of it... and some of the zest ended up emitting some juice onto the top of the pie, which you can see in the picture (I think it looks sorta gross).

The crust hardened up a little too much, but the taste and texture of the pie is excellent. Not authentic by any stretch of the imagination, but a quick and tasty (albeit very caloric) dessert.

About Me
I'm Carol. My husband and I reside near the Bay Area, where we enjoy our house, our 2006 Mustang GT and 2005 Chrysler 300, our assortment of reptiles, and our lack of children.
My favorite things to cook
Alton Brown's Baked Mac 'n Cheese is my absolute favorite, followed by stuffed shells. I guess I'm a pasta-holic!
My cooking triumphs
I love "winging it" with cooking and have gotten pretty good at it.
My cooking tragedies
A fair amount of my baking doesn't turn out.
