Ok, so hear me out on this one: key lime pie, but a version you can hold in your hand. No fork needed.

These cookies are like a mini key lime pie – but the graham cracker cookie is way studier than any crust (and, in my opinion, way more delicious!) This is such a fun take on the classic dessert!

I used key limes from Melissa’s Produce for this recipe. Since the lime is the star of the show here, you want to make sure you’re using the freshest limes!

Homemade Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

This post is sponsored in conjunction with #SpringSweetsWeek. I received product samples from sponsor companies to help in the creation of the #SpringSweetsWeek recipes. All opinions are mine alone.

Welcome to spring! I’m dreaming of everything green – which is why I was so, so excited when Melissa’s Produce sent me a big bunch of fresh mint. Mint is something I grow in my garden each year so having some before garden season was such a treat – and I knew I needed to make it the star of the show.

Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream is a family favorite, but this version is next level. There are no flavoring extracts or food coloring here – that gorgeous color and all the flavor comes from the mint!

This ice cream is incredible. It’s fresh, creamy, and minty with an hint of earthiness from the mint leaves. It is a process to make, but trust that the time invested will be so very worth it when you take that first bite!

Slow Cooker Honey Mustard Pulled Chicken

I think slow cookers are under appreciated during the summer months. Everyone loves the hearty stews and chilis when the weather is chili – but how often do you break it out when it’s hot outside?

I really is the perfect kitchen tool on hot days because it cooks without heating up the house. The trick is to pick a meal that doesn’t feel like it’s made for fall.

These sandwiches are a perfect example. These are saucy, but not heavy and the slaw makes them feel fresh and perfect for a hot day.
