Ooooh- I have a love/hate relationship with that crust. It's kinda too salty (Jesse really likes it and didn't think it was a good idea when I tried to modify it). I love it, then I hate it- which sounds like the makings of a passionate relationship. That creamy, lime custard though? There can be no question about my love for that. The lime flavor makes it a refreshing dessert for summer.

#3:

My sister Jennifer invited us over for a barbecue the other day, and she had a spread of fruit and pretzels with chocolate dip. She used chocolate without additions, which YUM. But if you want to lighten your chocolate dip, consider using Greek yogurt as the base. It's just as yummy AND it's figure friendly. You'll delight your guests at your next barbecue.
