The temperatures are rising, the days are getting longer and the beach outside our house is getting busier every day. It’s official – summer is just around the corner. Before I start posting ice cream cakes, flavoured frozen yoghurts, popsicles and other summer-themed recipes, I want to get as many spring-themed recipes in as possible. Recipes like this one for Frozen Key Lime Pie Cheesecake Cups.
Do you mind if I ramble for a minute? Are there any other food bloggers out there still struggling to write up blog posts? This ZipList plugin issue is doing my head in.
Even though they released a new updated version of the plugin, I still can’t add a blog post when the plugin is active, which means in the meantime, all the Pink Recipe Box recipes are going to be written out in the plan, old fashioned none recipe card-way.
I feel bit better now. Ranting always helps, don’t you think? Anyway, back to these Frozen Key Lime Pie Cheesecake Cups! They’re pretty much a combination of all my favourite dessert elements. A buttery cookie base, a smooth and creamy white chocolate cheesecake layer and a citrus key lime topping. Oh my yum.
As I mentioned earlier, spring is transitioning into summer literally as I type where I live. Can you feel it where you are? I think this dessert is the perfect symbol of this. The springtime zesty citrus flavour of the limes is the star of the show, whilst the whole dessert comes in the form of a frozen cup, perfect for summer.
Why did I freeze this dessert and not just refrigerate it? Because the key lime pie layer didn’t fully set in the fridge. Hey – at least I’m honest! I could have said because I wanted to do the whole symbolising spring transitioning into summer in one dessert thing like I mentioned above. Actually, that would have sounded much better and more professional, wouldn’t it?
Mind if I veer off-tangent again? I wrote a post a few weeks ago about how I was going to put Pink Recipe Box on the back burner for a bit whilst I get my head around everything I’ve got to do and everything I want to do. Well, I’m happy to be able to tell you guys that I think I’m finally on top of it all and can begin posting three times each week again!
The idea is to upload a new recipe on Monday (ideally a savoury or breakfast recipe), another new recipe on Friday (ideally a sweet or drink recipe) and a post makeover on Wednesday. So although you’ll only see two new posts appear each week on the Pink Recipe Box homepage, if you like me on Facebook, follow me on Twitter or add me into your circles on Google+, you’ll be notified when a new post makeover is up, too.
Sound good? Great! Now I’m off to clear my cache and trash my computer to see if there is anyway I can sort out the plugin issue on my end. Happy Friday!
Here are the link parties I link up to. Come and party with me!
