That’s right friends… it is Secret Recipe Club (SRC) time… and for those who are not aware, SRC is basically a secret santa/blog swap concept, where international food bloggers are assigned someone’s blog in order to make, photograph & write about one of their assigned blogs recipes.
Pretty cool, concept eh?
This is my 12th SRC reveal… and I have to admit that it has really opened up so many new blogs to me and encouraged me to try new things!
Which is why I was pretty excited to get Morsels of Life as my assigned blog this month – not only because of the mutaul love of food… but also because we have something in common… (well, almost)… CJ has a little boy called Bobert (who is SUPER cute) and we are expecting our first little one in just over 2 months time! So I feel somewhat connected to this mommy-dearest!
CJ provides a summary twice a week, the first being “Inspire me Monday” & the second being “Five Friday Finds” – both of which are a great reads! But I digress… I spent a good portion of time checking out her recipes and couldn’t decide on whether I would make her basic pizza crust, mini pineapple upside down cakes or the mini key lime mousse pies….
But finally – my sweet tooth won out (which I have been blaming on the pregnancy, when in reality, I think it has nothing to do with it) and we sat down to devour the Mini Key Lime Mousse pies – although I did make 2 adaptions – I used chocolate digestive biscuits as the base instead of the graham crackers & therefore didn’t need the sugar.
Oh boy were these delicious… I have to confess to being tempted to eat 2 in one sitting (oops)…and dreaming about having another for breakfast the next morning (which may or may not have happened and am taking the 5th about ;))
