A New Cookie Recipe

Thought this recipe was fitting since I just returned from the Sunshine State a couple of days ago.

Homemade key lime cookies are a delicious variation on Florida's famed Key lime pie. You can use regular limes in this recipe, but increase the amount of zest to two and a half tablespoons.

Makes about 80


1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
1/2 teaspoon salt
12 tablespoons (11/2 sticks) unsalted butter
1 cup confectioners' sugar
2 tablespoons finely grated Key lime zest (from about 15 limes)
2 tablespoons fresh Key lime juice (from about 5 limes)
1 tablespoon fine sanding sugar


Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Whisk together flour and salt.
Beat butter and confectioners' sugar with a mixer on medium-high speed until creamy, about 3 minutes.
Beat in lime zest and juice.
Reduce speed to low.
Gradually add flour mixture, and beat until just combined. Divide dough in half, shape each half into a disk, and wrap in plastic.
Refrigerate for 1 hour (or overnight).

Blue Monday

This is a fun thing that my friends at have been doing while I was away. I thought I'd join in today...Blue Monday. Perfect timing. I've got tons of water photos.

That's my boy enjoying the deep end. :D



Remember me?

I've been sunning my buns in Florida for the past month. Ahhhh! One of the highlights of the trip was getting to meet Karen. I've known her for about 5 years or so but we have never met IRL. We've talked on the phone, e mailed, you name it, but never have come face to face.

I've admired her sense of style, elegance and class from the cyber world for a long time. She's smart and sweet and funny and a bad influence when shopping. Just kidding. I really do regret not buying that dress at Ann Taylor. I should have listened to her. ;)

We are often in the same state but I'm in Miami and she is Tampa...5 hours apart. So, we researched a midway point to meet, Naples and planned to have lunch and shop. Due to horrendous directions from mapquest, it took me 3 hours or more (I'm not sure because I was delerious from the heat and long drive thru the everglades) to get there when it should have only taken me a little over 2. But, I made it and I …
