Inside the Book: Key Lime Bars

Thank you to everyone who responded to my facebook posts and tweets about sharing a recipe from Sweet Designs. We added up all of the votes from the various polls and Key Lime Bars won with a slight margin. This Key Lime Bar recipe is in my Take Me Away chapter {there – now you know about another chapter!}  I decided to do a Take Me Away chapter in the book because I’ve always been inspired by the gorgeous colors and patterns of resort wear. I’m always inspired by fashion, but ESPECIALLY during resort season!  There is something about the exotic and colorful ikat and peacock patterns which fill up Manhattan’s spring windows that manage to make me feel like I’m being “taken away” to an exotic island. Even when I’m freezing in the months of March and April, I can at least dream about white sand between my toes and getting rid of the last bit of chill in my body. When I was planning this dessert table, I immediately thought of citrus flavors both for flavor and color.  My refreshing and zesty lime bars from this chapter will instantly wake up your sleepy winter palate and make you feel as if Summer has arrived! There are other great citrusy desserts from this chapter and I can’t wait until you see and try them all with the full table in the book! Hope you enjoy them!
