So is a good Key Lime Pie recipe.
What sets this particular Key Lime Pie apart from others is the addition of slivered almonds in the buttery, graham cracker crust. The crunch of the nuts contrasts wonderfully with the smooth, tart bites of the creamy filling.

Wye Oak released their fourth album, ‘Shriek’, in April. This is a duo that sound like a crowd of musicians. I saw them in concert a few years ago and it was astounding to watch this guy and gal create such a wall of music between the two of them.
‘Shriek’ is yet another great collection of songs from Wye Oak, with Jenn Wasner’s vocals really lush this go round. The musical direction has shifted from guitar to more synth, which is a fun change.
“Glory” is one of my favorites off the album.
Check out Wye Oak on the band’s Website, where you can learn of upcoming US tour dates and buy their music.
