There's always a first time for everything

Not too long ago for the first time I entered the kitchen with actual intent to cook.

Soon after followed the first time I made blondies, and the first time I made a cake with multiple layers (hey, two is a multiple). 

And now, for your viewing pleasure...

The first time I made a pie. 

A Key Lime Pie, to be exact. 

Ready for the oven? 
Ready for the oven
Ready!

That was my personification of the pie, which immediately then bothered me that I was giving a personality and the ability to answer questions to an object that was about to be put into a 350 degree oven.

Let's move on, shall we?

Adam, or the King of Zesting, as he deemed himself during this baking session, took my camera at this point. 
Adam took this picture

Regaining control of the camera, I then temporarily forbade Adam from eating in order to take this picture.

And this picture as well. 
A little closer...

And to mark this adventure up on the proverbial baking experience scorecard...it looks like pie...tasted like pie...fairly obviously IS pie...

I'd say that this was a successful branch into another slice (get it?) of the baking world!

That pie looks really, really good. Never made a key lime pie, but tend to make apple pie a LOT. Might just have to bust out my grandmother's recipe for key lime!

Thanks!! I unfortunately usually have to avoid apple pie, because of the cinnamon, but it definitely sounds delicious :)

The key lime recipe I used was also super easy (in addition to tasty)! All I needed was a graham cracker pie crust (yes, I cheated and bought a crust), a can of sweetened condensed milk, 1/2 a cup of key lime juice, 2 egg yolks, and about a tablespoon of key lime zest. Mix together, and bake for 15-20 minutes.
