No, wait. That's just the motto I live by.
The saying I'm thinking of goes, "When life hands you limones, make limonada!" It's a great saying, and limonada is probably one of the best refreshing and delicious beverages around, but I think the saying could use a little tweaking. I mean suggesting that limonada is the only thing you can make, really puts a limit on the possibilities. That's just completely unfair to all of the tart and juicy limones in the world. That's why for this month's Food of the Month Club Recipe Round-Up, I'm changing that old saying to...
"When life hands you limones, look at all of the wonderful things you can make!"
To start things off, we have this creamy and dreamy Lime Zest Ice Cream from my foodie BFF, Girlichef. I bet it's like a fiesta in your mouth!
FOTMC newcomer, Ckay from Sweet and That's It, prepared a creamy curd di Limetta (lime curd) and then turned it into these amazing chocolate-crusted tartlets with strawberries, dulce de leche and whipped cream. How do you say insanely delicious in Italian?
Nicole from Presley's Pantry has two delicious recipes for us this month. First up are these amazing Shrimp Tacos with Key Lime & Orange Love. Ay. Dios. Mio! These would be a great for a Cinco de Mayo party this weekend.
Next up, Nicole offers us this refreshing (and miraculous) Ginger Lime Tea that will cure pretty much everything that ails you.
Speaking of Cinco de Mayo, you can't have a party without margaritas. For that we turn to my good friend, Vianney from Sweet Life, whom I like to call "la diosa de las margaritas". How gorgeous is this Strawberry-Lime Margarita?
To satisfy your sweet tooth, our friends from Muy Bueno Cookbook have a cool and creamy Lemon-Lime Icebox Pie.
I also have two recipes to share this month. The first recipe is a popular beer/lime juice cocktail called Micheladas that has a spicy kick.
The second recipe is a tangy Lime-Cilantro Vinagreta.
To end things on a sweet note, we have this Sassy Pisco Sour & Coconut Tart from our good friends at Peru Delights. Did you hear that? I pretty sure I just heard this slice screaming my name!
A big thank you to all of my foodie friends for sharing their favorite lime recipes. If you would like to be featured in the next Food of the Month Club Round-Up, tune in tomorrow (May 3rd) to find out what ingredient will be our next Food of the Month.
