Honey Caramel Popcorn

I think we can all agree that this time of year is crazy!  And perhaps from time to time we forget to eat a “real meal” because we’re just so busy.  Don’t feel bad though, I definitely ate some (A LOT) of this popcorn for lunch.  It all balances out if you eat a salad for dinner…. right?

Saturdays are for spending time with best friends, for baking, for watching silly tv shows, and for relaxing in the sunshine.  Sadly though, sometimes on Saturdays, some of us have to work.  Actually, more often that not, I have to work Saturdays.  So having these kind of Saturdays to look forward to, gets me through the rest of them.

Key Lime Pie

I’m ready for summer.  I never thought thought I’d hear myself say those words.  I’m a winter person.  Weird, I know.  But right now, in this moment, I can’t wait to put on my summer dresses and sit in the sunshine while sipping Rekorderlig cider.  But in the mean time I’ll settle for this pie.

This pie is the perfect transition between winter and summer.  It’s a pie, so you think winter right?  But it’s totally more like a cheesecake.  A citrus-ey, deliciously sweet, cheesecake pie.

One bite of this and you’ll be instantly transported to a place where the weather and is warmer and the sun shines all day.  Well, not really, but it certainly will get you in the mood for summer.
