Why This Blog?


Come in and make yourself at home. I'm so happy to be able to share my recipes here with you.

I bake mostly cookies, quick breads, muffins and scones -- sometimes pie, sometimes cake, but nothing too fancy. I prefer simple recipes that call for ingredients that I already have in my kitchen.

These are the recipes I will share with you. They come from family and friends, magazine clippings saved through the years, favorite cookbooks, and other blogs.

I'm so glad you came to visit. Enjoy your stay!

Refreshing Lime Pie

Here is a recipe from a 1999 Taste of Home cookbook that I scored at a used book store for $1!  It is delicious and very easy to make.  This is a perfect spring and summer dessert that you can whip up in 30 minutes.  It got two thumbs up in my house!

1 envelope unflavored gelatin
½ cup cold water
1 pkg (3 oz) lime gelatin
½ cup boiling water
24 oz Key Lime Pie yogurt
1-1/2 cups whipped topping
1 store bought cookie or graham cracker crust (8 inches)

In a small bowl, sprinkle unflavored gelatin over cold water; let stand for 1 minute.  In another larger bowl, dissolve the lime gelatin in boiling water; stir in unflavored gelatin until dissolved.  Refrigerate for 10 minutes. Stir in the yogurt. Chill until partially set (about 10 minutes).  Fold in the whipped topping. Pour into crust. Chill until firm.

Happy Baking!


  1. I'm so HAPPY to have you here again, Michael Ann! I've missed you! I cannot wait to try this; it looks perfect for these beautiful spring days we are finally enjoying. Keep the deliciousness coming, my friend!

    1. Nancy, thank you, that is so sweet! Let me know how you like it!

  2. Well hello there! Nice to see you, and you brought pie. That one is an interesting recipe...I wonder how it would be with berry flavored things just for a variety of options.

    1. I think it would be great with any flavor! Next time I'm going to try it with lemon.

  3. How great to get a post from you..you've been missed!! Would you believe I just bought ingredients this week to make this refreshing pie!? ;-) Have a great week!

    1. Thank you, Marsha! Yes, I do believe you! Let me know what you think! I'm thinking next time I make it, I will not add the unflavored gelatin. I'm not sure it needs it.... I think I would like it to be a little creamier and not as firm.
