Nothing else can open up the flavors of a dish quite like lime does and this Key Lime Pie has the perfect balance of tangy and sweet!  The Key Lime Filling has a perfectly smooth lime flavor and the Macadamia Nut Crust adds a wonderful crunchy contrast.  This refreshing summer pie is splendid to enjoy on a hot summers day!

Guten Tag, I am Carla Aguas, the creator behind the Bee’s Knees Kitchen, the raw food blog aimed at discovering healthy, simple recipes to satisfy your sweet tooth and hungry belly! The Bee’s Knees Kitchen is a blog I started in February 2010 to chronicle my adventure into the raw food world.  My objective was to find healthy meals and desserts that use the same basic ingredients and were easy to prepare. As a Oregonian living in Germany and food addict, I wanted to be able to share my recipes with family back home and it blossomed from there.  I come from a family of foodies and I take my inspiration from foods I recall from my parents and from being raised in such a bountiful place as the Pacific Northwest. My raw food appeals to all of your sense without even realizing that you are being held to “raw” standards.  Fresh produce is continually my main inspiration, and I am persistently searching far and wide for desserts and meals to appease my varied palette.  Please enjoy my blog, create, comment and share a more nutritious way of eating that doesn’t sacrifice the flavor or beauty of what food should always be!
