Brown Rice and Chai Horchata

I don’t recall the first time I tried Horchata.  It doesn’t even sound like anything I would like but I love anything Spanish so of course I tried it.  Horchata is one of those things I always try if I see it somewhere.  Everyone has a different way of making it, so I always want to try their secret recipe. 

Lime Tarts with Banana Meringue, Honey Meringue and “Mango Not Gay Meringue”

Can I still call them key lime pies if I didn’t use key limes?? I have a love hate relationship with key lime pie.  I want to love it for its sweet and creamy beautiful texture but I want to hate it because there is nothing too it.  I especially hate when people put the green food coloring in.  Stop it!!  That all changed when I started working in Florida and the pastry chef I worked for used honey meringue on the key lime.  It blew my mind and I was starting to like key lime pie again.
