We have officially experienced the kickoff of summer at our house... we had a Key Lime Pie!!
My Grandma used to make a fabulous recipe with 1/2 cup of lime juice and we found it today and made it for company. It was sooooo yummy!!
I've also officially become pooped of the kitchen. In the last 24 hours I have made:

1. A batch of my famous chocolate chip cookies for a cast rehearsal/get-together
2. 4 12" cakes
3. An overly gourmet icing to put on two of the four cakes that included mascarpone cheese, cream cheese, AND whipping cream
4. A pumpkin pie
5. the Key Lime Pie

I must confess, though, that I did not make the pie dough from scratch. (Thank you, Pillsbury!)

Just in case my claims seem too outlandish to believe, I have documented my baking marathon with photos. Unfortunately I forgot to take a pic of the sliced cake... I shall try and remember to do that for future posts. Until then... enjoy the view, but no drooling please. ; )

The Key Lime Pie
(I didn't make meringue cuz no one in the
family seems to like it besides me... boo.  )

Birthday cake with gourmet icing

                                                        The Pumpkin Pie

And for proof that I did indeed bake them all at the same time?

There you go. :) Man, was that fun!!
