key lime tart

Inspired by winning a cookbook from a giveaway on the blog Tartelette, I have decided to update my own blog!  Can't believe it's been a I am again on spring break, celebrating Easter and about to travel to Ensenada, Mexico.

For Easter brunch tomorrow at church, I just baked a key lime tart, from this Martha Stewart recipe.  I have an 11-inch tart pan with a removable bottom that I found at Value Village, but it worked just fine in place of a 9-inch.  I used ten graham crackers and bottled key lime juice from Fred Meyer.

Earlier this week I made the same key lime tart for a work event, and last weekend I made lemon bars for a gathering of friends.  Now I have 12 egg whites in my freezer!  At some point I will make one of these suggested ways to use up egg whites.

Speaking of eggs, Brandon and Kara brought me a dozen eggs fresh from the farm--just look at these gorgeous colors!  Who needs to dye Easter eggs when the natural ones are so beautiful?!  And when you crack them, the yolks are a much richer and deeper yellow than store-bought ones.

I will leave you with this Easter thought that I read in the newspaper this morning:
Every day do something that won't compute...Give your approval to all you cannot understand...Ask the questions that have no answers. Put your faith in two inches of humus that will build under the trees every thousand years. ... Laugh. Be joyful though you have considered all the facts. ... Practice resurrection. 
~Wendell Berry, in The Country of Marriage
