Key Lime Bars

Summer is at an end...


Sorry I have been gone so long, but I am back. I hope you have missed me as much as I have missed you. If you saw my last post then you know a lot has been going on. Since then, we moved into our new house (which is amazing), I went to visit some friends in San Francisco, and we began wedding planning. For those of you are interested in the wedding details I want to tell you we picked our date and venue! We are getting married May 22nd, 2010 in Alexandria, Virgina at the Torpedo Factory Art Center. I am still on Cloud 9 and I imagine I am going to be for a long time. We still have a ways to go when it comes to furnishing and decorating our house and wedding planning, but I am loving every minute of it. Thanks for all the nice things you had to say and if you have any tips or advice for weddings I would love to hear it. In the mean time I have a recipe for you. Like many of my recipes, I got this from my future mother-in-law (have I mentioned how amazing a baker she is lately). These key lime bars are absolutely amazing. They are the perfect summer dessert, but are really good anytime of year if you ask me :)
