Not too long ago we went to some friends' house for dinner and for dessert my friend Phyllis served Key Lime Pie which The Big Guy and I thought was so delicious; ever so light, full of flavor, very fluffy and needless to say made a nice presentation. I thought she had been slaving for hours squeezing those tiny key limes but she said it only took 5 minutes. Really? Huh? Homemade key lime pie. . . . in five minutes? Was I surprised when she handed me the paper insert from a Keebler pie crust. Who pays attention to those recipes? Certainly not moi. But this one looked too easy for words! So, the next week I had to try it for myself but since I didn't have lime yogurt but I did have strawberry and a mixed berry, it's was time to experiment. I used a strawberry gelatin with these yogurts. Ooh, la la ~ was it ever so pretty! And tasty, if I do say so myself. Since I just read today that tomorrow (Sunday which is today for you readers) is pi day, it goes without saying I don't have my own pie pic to show you. The photo above is
