Key Lime Tarts

While it’s taken a whole lot longer than I actually anticipated, I’ve seemingly gotten my new site up and running with only the smallest of minor glitches.  Honestly, I can’t really complain and I’m pretty darned proud of myself :)  Self hosting.  Shared hosting.  Servers.  html.  css.  php.  htaccess.  It started off as being so very confusing but now I think I’ve collected all the dots… and I’m finally starting to connect them.  I certainly learned a lot along the way and in the end it’s a good feeling knowing I completed a “DIY” project on my To Do list.  I made these key lime tarts when I was in the final stages of gettng the site ready and they were a terrific pick-me-up.  They’re very tart… very good… and very very rewarding.  Now that we’ve hit those warm months of summer (hey, it was 102°F here today!) this is a wonderful hot-weather dessert.  Whether you make them as cute little 3″ tartletts or go for a full 9″ tart, no matter, you’ll still get plenty of raves!

Easy Sticky Buns

This week’s Barefoot Bloggers recipe was Ina Garten’s Tuna Salad.  Now definitely I love tuna salad but to be honest this recipe absolutely did not float my boat.  That’s okay though… I mean not every recipe is for every body and this one just wasn’t for me.  I decided to participate in something new for the Barefoot Bloggers and that’s the Barefoot Backtracking.  It will be offered on occasion and allows you to make an old recipe and swap it for a required recipe.  The old recipe can be one that you’ve made and want to revamp or one that you’ve missed… and the recipe is of your own choice!  This was perfect for me this week and I took them up on the offer.  The recipe of my choice?  Ina’s Easy Sticky Buns :)
