You’re always hearing about my books and heroes and heroines but you don’t hear much about me. So I thought every now and again I’d reveal a quirk or tidbit about myself.
Today I’m going to start with Key Lime pie. A few years ago I went to visit a writer friend of mine, Helen Cavanagh, on Marco Island, Florida. We went out to supper and I asked about the Key Lime pie on the menu, never having tried it. She told me I didn’t know what I was missing and to give it a try. I did and I was hooked. I’m addicted to Key Lime pie. The problem is that I’ve never had such delicious Key Lime pie as I did that day. Now it may have been the first time trying it that left a memorable taste, or perhaps you Floridians are the only ones who know how to make a great Key Lime pie, but I’m still searching for that distinctive taste that makes my mouth water, especially during the summer. Key Lime Pie and hot summer days just go together perfectly.
So if anyone has a recipe they’d like to share with me, I would be ever so grateful. But send it quick, those lazy days of summer are fading fast.
