So, I know it’s been a while since my last post (okay…like 6 weeks–that’s probably more than a while), but life’s been crazy with tons of changes–new job & new house–so I’ve definitely taken my time adjusting. I’m slowing coming back into blog-land. 🙂
Couldn’t pass up sharing this amazing recipe I found off of the Hungry Girl Newsletter today though–for all your Key Lime fans…this one looks like a winner!!! I’ll let you know once I try it!!!

They’re fluffy and they’re fantastic! Lime Jell-O never had it so good…
One 4-serving package (or half an 8-serving package) Jell-O Sugar Free Lime Gelatin
2 cups Cool Whip Free, thawed
1 1/2 tbsp. lemon juice
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
1 no-calorie sweetener packet
8 low-fat honey graham crackers (2 sheets)
In a medium bowl, combine 1 cup boiling water with gelatin mix and sweetener. Stir for at least 2 minutes (until completely dissolved). Then add 1 /2 cup cold water, the lemon juice, and the vanilla extract. Refrigerate for about 45 minutes, until slightly thickened but still mixable.
Next, stir in the Cool Whip. Mix until thoroughly blended (a wire whisk works best). Divide mixture among 5 dessert dishes. Refrigerate until firm (at least 3 hours).
Once ready to serve, crush graham crackers, and evenly distribute the crumbs over the top of the dishes.
