beautiful tablescapes she creates when she
entertains her large family or friends.
Jacqueline's book is full of wonderful recipes
collected from family and friends through the years.
It begins, as the title proclaims, with desserts.
Lots of delicious desserts!
Recipes for appetizers, entrées, and soups and salads
follow up to complete the book.
My friend and fellow blogger, Linda @ More Fun Less Laundry,
also received a copy of Eat Dessert First.
We thought it would be fun to each share a special post on
one of the recipes in this fun cookbook.
My choice was Jackie's amazing
Key Lime Pie

You'll find Jacqueline's original post on this
dessert complete with recipe here.
Noted as "a southern comfort food", Jacqueline used her recipe
to spotlight her review of Michael Lee West's
Gone With A Handsomer Man.
The recipe works just as well for individual tarts.
Just make the graham cracker crusts in individual muffin tins.
Key Lime Tarts are the perfect summertime treat!
I took my tray of summer treats over to a friend's home.
She has a bright purple bench on her porch.
Perfect spot for honoring Purple Chocolate Home!
As Jacqueline points out in her post,
key limes are "tiny little devils".
One has to squeeze a bag full of key limes for the cup
of fresh lime juice needed for the recipe.
Oh, the wonderful
fragrance of fresh limes!
The stack of vintage porcelain plates are
Wkdbrzych, made in Poland,
and the flatware is Sir Christopher by Wallace.
The reproduction jadeite cup and cake stand were
recent finds when shopping in the quaint village of Gruene, TX.
I wish I could tell you who makes these, but they are unmarked.
I found four of the cups and the cake stand on a sale table.
They were too charming to leave behind!
Sweet whipped cream and fresh lime slices
finish off these delectable little desserts.
To quote Jacqueline's husband,
"The texture ranks right up there with the flavor!"
Thank you, Jacqueline for the gift of this wonderful cookbook.
I'll make certain to Eat Dessert First!
