Key Lime Cheesecake Pie

J and I just got back from our Bahamas cruise (Majesty of the Seas, 4 nights). This is the third time that we have done this itinerary and ship. It stops in Nassau Bahamas, CocoCay (RCI's private island) and Key West. One of my favorite place to visit in Key West is Kermit's Key West Key Lime Shoppe. I always have to get a slice of key lime pie and also some key limeade. This time I bought a bottle of key lime juice to take home. Tomorrow we are going to J's parent's house for dinner,  I decided to make a key lime pie.

Key Lime Cheesecake Pie

  • 9 or 10 inch graham cracker pie crust
  • 1 14 oz can of sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup of key lime juice
  • 5 egg yolks (save the egg whites for meringue topping for later use)
  • 8 ounces of cream cheese
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large bowl, combine sweetened condensed milk, key lime juice, cream cheese and egg yolks on medium speed with the mixer. Pour the mixture into the pie crust. Bake for 25 minutes. Turn the oven off and let the cheesecake pie stand in oven for another 20 minutes with the oven door open at least 4 inches. Remove the cheesecake pie from the oven then let it cool on the counter for about 30 minutes then refrigerate. 

You can either make a meringue to top the key lime cheesecake pie or top with whipped cream.

What to do on a rainy day??

It's been a while since I last posted due to the fact that I was sick for almost a month. The first week (right after I got back from CA) it started off just as having the sniffles then it got worst but I attributed the sinus congestion to being allergies. Then by the last week of April, I felt like I got ran over by a truck. 

When I finally went to the doctor that Tuesday, it turned into severe upper respiratory and sinus infections. He prescribed me antibiotics/Robitussin AC and told me I have to stay for at least two days before I can go back to work. I finally felt better last week. I think this was the sickest I've been since I've been an adult. So of course for about a month I didn't really do much of anything besides going to work and going to sleep after I got home. 

Since the weather is really shitty today I figured I would just stay home and try to clean up the house since I couldn't do much of anything last month. Besides cleaning, I also made some yummy foods for dinner. I made a big pot of Japanese Chicken Curry for me, Chicken cutlet with bruschetta topping for J and chocolate chips cookies.
