Yep that’s right, while most of you around the country are getting out your boots and jackets and making hot apple cider, we are still in the throws of a full blown heat wave!  After lounging by the pool this weekend I decided I needed something cool and refreshing and alas, this Strawberry Lime Parfait was born! I will definitely be making this the next time we have friends over. It is so pretty and freezes well so can be made well in advance. Read More
