Fredericksburg Foodie Key Lime Trifle

Summer is right around the corner and that means lots of time spent with family and friends!

Four of my closest friends – my “framily” as we call each other – get together quite regularly. With anywhere from 20-30 of us at our shindigs, including our husbands and kids, we always make sure there is plenty of good food and drink ready.

Searching for new and easy recipes to make for this group is always fun. Fredericksburg Foodie is a great local blog to visit when you are looking for something delicious to make. When I saw the recipe for the Key Lime Trifle, I knew that dessert would be taken care of at our next soiree!

Trifles are so fun to make and they are a great way to get kids involved in on the baking action as well. This recipe is no different!

Enjoy and thanks Fredericksburg Foodie for this fabulous recipe!
