    Leanne, the comment you left on my home tour was the sweetest! Thank you so much. It means a lot to me. I feel so insecure about my stuff sometimes…I don’t know why. It’s not like I’m trying to pass myself off as a successful designer 😉 But you made my day by what you said.

    These key lime bars look amazing. I might have to try them…and I don’t have a gluten problem!

    Thanks again.

    I made these for the family and they loved them. I am the one with celiacs but they eat mostly gluten free. I love how easy they are. Thanks for such a great recipe!!!!!
