Having grown up a northerner, I only learned how to make one version of key lime pie as a child – the one on the back of the key lime […] Read more…

Strawberry and Donut Kabobs

Of all of the breakfast goodies in the world, Mr. Mountaineer’s favorites are donuts.  He always tells such loving stories about going to work with his dad on warm summer mornings as a kid.  They would always stop and pick up this tasty treat to eat at the job site or in the car.  At least […] Read more…
