Fun. Soft. Creamy. Sassy.
All of these words describe my beautiful daughter Kate Kelly AND the Key Lime Pie she is holding.
For birthdays, I make each child’s favorite dinner and dessert, and Kate always chooses Key Lime Pie.
Has anyone ever asked you the question “If you were a pie, what kind would you be?” – like Barbara Walters asking people what kind of tree they would be, this question reveals a lot about a person. And Kate is exactly a Key Lime Person. She adds flavor and zest to life in so many ways. She is assertive – tangy – but also has a soft and compassionate side – creamy if you will. I am so very lucky to be Kate’s mom – it is exceptional to have a child that has lived her life in such a way that a parent admires and respects – and even looks up to her child. But it is true of Kate. She fights injustices with every bone in her body and then some. Right now she is in the Dominican Republic doing research with a human rights committee. But she also makes room in her life for adventures, such as the group she and hubby Neil started – Passionate International Gastronomers.
Today, on Pi Day, 3-14, I pay tribute to Kate and her Key Lime Pie. May your adventures be eternal, my sweetie!
I followed America’s Test Kitchen, but tweaked it to add lime zest, making it limey-er.
Wish you were here to share a tangy slice, Kate!
