Kiwi Lime Pie à la "Friends"!  You know, the one where Ross eats Kiwi Lime Pie even though he's allergic to kiwi, and him and Monica end up in the emergency room? What can I say? When one is without a computer, one tends to watch a lot of "Friends"! :)

An Oregon Girl Taking a Bite Out of Kentucky
Introduction
I'm a 30-something food-lover, devoted to my family and fur babies. I love to be in the kitchen, I love everything about trying new flavors and foods. I graduated from college in 2005, and went straight to work for a large corporation. After 6 years of climbing the ladder, I realized that wasn't what I wanted my life to be. So here I am! In Kentucky, in the kitchen, and loving life.
