Creamy Lime Squares

Last week, our neighbors brought by three, very large bags of fruit from their citrus trees. While appreciative, I was also stumped - what's a girl to do with this many grapefruits and limes?

My sister recommended grapefruit bars, but I couldn't find a recipe that I trusted. Luckily, I stumbled across a recipe for lime bars that sounded awesome, and sure enough, they were great!

To be honest, the first thing that attracted me to the recipe was the website itself - Eat, Live, Run. The blogger's name is Jenna, and according to her 'About Me' she's a trained chef, food photographer, freelance food writer, and recipe developer. Already impressed, I read on to learn that she supports local ingredients and active living. What's not to love? I obviously had to try her recipe for creamy lime squares, and in turn, share it here. I'm sure you'll enjoy them as much as I did!

"I now pronounce you husband and wife."

My friend Megan got married this weekend! Megan is one of the warmest, truest, funniest, most beautiful women I have the pleasure of knowing - and boy, she can really put on a great party. I couldn't resist sharing some photos from the event this past Saturday.

Megan is one of four women with whom I have a very special friendship. The five of us worked together at the eating disorder clinic in San Francisco, where we all tackled a number of hardships, both personal and professional. We've since separated from the clinic, but we've still managed to do a good job of staying in touch and seeing each other often.

Lisa, Jen, Megan, Caitie, and me 
I love these gals, and as you will see, we sure have a great time when we're together. Congrats again, Megs!
