A key lime pie starts with the graham cracker crust. You can always buy a premade crust, but crusts made from scratch are so much better! So I've included crust directions in the recipe. While the crust is baking, you can make the pie filling. Fill the baked pie crust, bake a little more, and then let the pie cool. Refrigerate overnight and then your pie is ready to enjoy!!

A key lime pie is called that for a reason. It calls for key limes, but sometimes they can be harder to find. But key lime juice can be found in the juice isle at the grocery store and always works great for that key lime refreshing flavor!

Top Canning and Preserving Recipes

Growing a garden has always been a big part of our summer. We plant a large garden each year. The time and work it takes is so rewarding when collecting all the bountiful produce. I love to grow different fruits and vegetables to enjoy fresh from the garden. There's nothing like biting into a fresh tomato right off the vine from the garden! Or fresh green beans straight from the garden for dinner! Do you have a favorite from the garden?


When planning and planting our garden each year we plant extra seeds and plants so that we are able to canning and freezing any excess if the garden does well.  Preserving the garden is a great way to enjoy homegrown produce all year.


Gardening is becoming more and more popular. Not only for the joy and love for gardening, but ultimately for the ability to feed their families better tasting and healthier food as well as saving money.


I have rounded up several canning and freezing recipes from my farmgirl blogger friends and myself that are great ways to preserve food from our garden.
