They fell off my kaffir lime tree a week ago and have been sitting resentfully in the fridge ever since. I can't let them rot. I think I'll get more zest than juice out of them. What recipes do y'all like that use about 4T of lime zest?
When made well, the piña colada is a fantastic drink. To some, it should never be tampered with. Just like all classics, variations can turn something good into something magnificent. Such is the case with Kathy Casey’s Kaffir Colada. The aromatic kaffir lime leaves mingle with a light and airy foam made with coconut milk. Divine!
French Chocolate Macarons with Chocolate Ganache
No lie: macarons can be fairly finicky to make, in that they might spread into uneven shapes or form dark spots on their tops -- but even if they're not as beautiful as bakery specimens, they will still be delicious. The smooth chocolate ganache filling sandwiches the light, chewy-inside, delicately-crisp-outside chocolate macarons together, for a classic French dessert you shouldn't be afraid to try making.

Chicken Tortilla Soup
Softened vegetables, including onions and bell peppers, amped up with spices like chili powder, cumin, oregano, and cayenne, form the base of this tortilla soup. Chicken broth and tomatoes are added, along with soft corn tortillas that meld into the liquid to make a hearty, thick meal. Finally, shredded chicken is stirred in, and everything is garnished with crunchy tortilla strips, sour cream, shredded cheese, and scallions (avocados, pickled jalapeños, and cilantro would all work too).
For these Rice Krispy Treats, we mixed in kettle-cooked potato chips for added crunch and a salty kick, upped the decadence with chocolate-covered peanuts, and added another level of sweetness with toasty graham crackers.
