A sweet gesture.

I can take credit for pretty much everything here on my blog, but all I can take credit for on this one are the photos. Upon my return from Los Angeles, a few weeks ago, I found this in my fridge. Paul made me a key lime pie as a "welcome back" gesture, shocking, and yes, true! It was his first time making a pie and my first time eating key lime pie, and boy was it delicious. He used a recipe from The Martha Stewart Living Cookbook. Since this was a first for both of us, I was plesantly surprised at its extreme tart qualities in addition to its sweetness. It's not subtle, whatsoever. I think the graham cracker crust was one of my favorite parts, it was dense, sweet and crunchy, a perfect accompaniment to the tart custard. He took presentation liberties by topping it off with toasted coconut and lime zest.
