I love to cook! So what happens when a regular person like me tries to make recipes from television, magazines, and the Internet? Sometimes it works. Sometimes it doesn't. I like to take recipes, whether it's something new or an old favorite, and either replicate them or make them my own. Follow along with me and see what I can cook up!
Ever Evolving Food Blog
Hello Everyone! I have had this blog for years now, and as my personal life has changed, so have my tastes and eating habits...for the better!! I am now a fully plant-based eater, so my newer recipes will reflect this lifestyle and way of eating.
All of my old recipes will remain on my food blog, of course, so there will be a mixture of the old and the new for everyone to look through and choose. You can always play around with any recipe out there and make it your own, whether it's plant-based or not. There are always other options!
Thanks SO much for following! Happy Eating!

Key Lime Pie
I really had no idea that there were such things as actual Key limes until I made this recipe! All my life, I just thought it was a lime pie named after the Florida Keys! I sheepishly came to find out that key limes are a smaller and tangier version of a regular lime. I found them next to the lemons and limes in the produce section.
1 can (14 oz) fat-free sweetened condensed milk
3/4 cup egg substitute
1/2 cup fresh Key lime juice
2 tsp. Key lime zest
1 (6 oz.) reduced fat, ready-made graham cracker crust
