Hey yalllllll,

As some of you may already know, I have been working on improving my baking skills and one of my favorite places to find my baking inspiration is on @courtniofftheclock’s Instagram page. After admiring her from afar for years, I am super excited to share with you guys that Courtni has officially joined the blog! Once a month she will be sharing her recipes right here and first on the list is Lemonade Pie!

I am going to attempt to make this recipe sometime this week and cross my fingers that it turns out as perfect as hers. Check back on me by Sunday to see if I made it out the kitchen safely lol.
