"key lime pie" news and stories
Ice cream is the great equalizer. Every person from every walk of life loves ice cream. (Except for lactose intolerant people, but they're obviously being punished by God.)
While it's perfectly acceptable to march into Baskin-Robbins and demand a triple cone of Jamoca Almond Fudge (you weirdos), or dive head-first into the Haagen-Dazs freezer for a pint of Sticky Toffee Pudding (you English people), wouldn't it feel exponentially more gratifying to make your own?
With a little bit of patience (or an ice cream maker), you can stop begrudging that Sesame, Soybean and Dried Kelp Ice Cream that you couldn't afford to have dry-frozen and shipped from Japan - and just make your own!
Here, eight ice cream recipes worth a whip:

On the Today show, Epicurious.com Editor Tanya Steel shows Hota Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford how to make a simple key lime pie.
Even if you can make a key lime pie in your sleep, it's a fun video (even though they say to use pre-squeezed key lime juice if you can't find limes - eek! That's like using lemon juice instead of real lemons in lemon squares!) The taste just can't compare.
Well, the video is fine until good ol' Kathie Lee ruins the moment by first commenting on the amount of calories in the condensed can of milk (Steel smartly replies "Yeah, but who's counting calories?") and then likens the ingredient to colostrum (and Kotb remarks, "Buzzkill.")
Cook much, Kathie Lee? Yeesh - don't invite her over when you're making key lime pie. She'll totally ruin your appetite.
If I had my way, every month would be pie month. I like all kinds of pies, from apple to pumpkin to Boston Cream. My apple pie has to be ice cold though. To me, hot apple pie is...gah.
February is Great American Pie Month, and for some reason I've always thought that the pie was an American creation in general. I doubt that's true, but we make some great pies. In the apple category, there's Mile High Apple Pie, Maple Apple Cream Pie, and Cranberry-Almond Apple Pie.
After the jump is a recipe for Key Lime Pie, from The Cook's Kitchen, which also has a little factoid on who liked pie so much he practically lived on it while travel ling across the country.
