This luscious, creamy dessert has its roots in the ubiquitous cherry cream cheese pie that was a feature of every church pot luck dinner and every post-funeral lunch of my childhood. Lime juice brightens it up, raspberries give it zing, and a patriotic topping theme makes it suitable for the holiday! —Kayb
I'm a business professional who learned to cook early on, and have expanded my tastes and my skills as I've traveled and been exposed to new cuisines and new dishes. I love fresh vegetables, any kind of protein on the grill, and breakfasts that involve fried eggs with runny yolks. My recipes tend toward the simple and the Southern, with bits of Asia or the Mediterranean or Mexico thrown in here and there. And a peanut butter and jelly sandwich on a float in the lake, as pictured, is a pretty fine lunch!
