Creamy Key Lime Tart...


Guess what I'm going to be doing tonight...

... go on now, guess.

Well, I will be indulging in this yummy dessert while watching The Celebrity Apprentice. I just can't get enough Reality TV... really I can't.

I know, I know... it's not the best of television out there, but I love the drama!

As I mentioned before... I love my "stories." And yes, The Celebrity Apprentice qualifies as one...

... the wealthy, the divorced, the DRAMA.

I mean, reality stars are the utmost definition of drama. Hello... Lil Jon, Latoya Jackson, Jose Canseco... GARY BUSEY, for goodness sake!

Yep, I'm gonna sit myself down with a big piece of this Creamy Key Lime Tart (another great recipe from my mother-in-law, by the way), stuff my face and enjoy Donald Trump's hair and Lil Jon's grill... Whuuuut, Okaaayyy, Yeaahh!!!

Let's not forget Gary Busey's quirky introspective on life...

Ah, yes... I heart you Reality TV.

  4. I have always wanted to make key lime pie. Yours sounds so yummy! I love that there are Honey Bunches in the crust. That add a nice flavor.
