I'm so excited to tell all of you that I won a Red Ribbon, second place, in a King Arthur sponsored pie baking contest! A local kitchen store that I like to frequent hosted the even and the proceeds went to the March of Dimes.
If you remember I entered last year (click here to read that post) and walked away empty handed and I said I'd be stepping up my game!!! Well, I can't tell you how many pies I baked this year - but my thighs can! It was all worth it! My husband was so excited too!
I won for my Lime Blueberry Pie. I tweaked the recipe slightly by adding 3 tablespoons of lime zest and three tablespoons of lime juice! Otherwise the recipe didn't change! Click here for the recipe, but don't forget to tweak!
Have a wonderful week my friends!

Besides my beautiful ribbon, which I'm going to frame, I also won a King Arthur gift certificate and a beautiful Emile Henry pie plate! Which I have used already! I baked a "Twisted Lime Blueberry" pie in my new pie dish! See below.
