I love traditions that celebrate the people we love – birthdays, anniversaries and of course, Father’s Day is this Sunday! A real dad dinner is my Slow-Roasted Filet of Beef with Basil Parmesan Mayonnaise. It’s so easy to make, and your dad will think you're brilliant! I’ve put together a whole dad-friendly menu on my homepage that will let him know how much you love him. Happy Father’s Day to all the wonderful dads out there!
Spring is really my favorite time of year in the garden. After a long winter, it feels like the trees and flowers begin to bloom all at once and the garden is full of life before I know it. Right now, the willow trees have white and pink tipped leaves that look like flowers but they’re really the new leaf growth. In front of them are lots of lettuces and chives in flower. Instead of cutting an entire head of lettuce and leaving a space, I take a few leaves from each head so I can have a delicious salad AND a gorgeous garden. If only the rabbits did it that way, too!
Frozen Key Lime Pie is the perfect make-ahead summer dessert! I like to make two at a time and store them in the freezer so I have dessert ready for last minute guests. If you don't feel comfortable piping, you can simply spread the whipped cream on top for a nice country look. Just be sure you defrost the pie for 15 minutes before you serve it, so it's easy to slice. Have a great weekend!
