Hi. I’m Alexa. I love to cook, bake, and socialize around the dinner table. You could say food is my love language. I’m the cook, photographer, and recipe developer behind this site. I love helping people find ways to make and share the flavors they love with the people they love. I especially love sharing recipes that people with food allergies and dietary needs can enjoy. So, you’ll find lots of gluten free, dairy-free, low carb, keto, and vegan recipes on this site.

Shane, my awesome husband, is the tech person here. He’s incredibly modest and would never admit what a pivotal role he plays in making your experience on this site the best it can be. He loves helping people, hiking, meditating, and taste testing all the recipes.


I believe that anyone can make amazing food that’s delicious, easy, and quick. Whatever your dietary needs are, there’s a way to make a beautiful meal without it taking the entire afternoon. The best part about food is sharing and enjoying it with the people you love. Let’s make great recipes and quickly get out of the kitchen back to the people we want to spend time with! Key To My Lime is here to:


Through the years, I’ve thrived on vastly different diets. Depending on what was going on with my body, one way of eating could serve me well for a while, and then something would change and my body would need something different. At the core of it all, I try to eat wholesome food that my body craves.

That’s why you’ll see so many types of recipes here. This isn’t a gluten free site, a low carb site, or a vegan site. There are lots of recipes for all of those dietary preferences though. I’ve done my best to categorize things well so that you have the choice to only look through the recipes that suit your needs.

I also love holidays, like I REALLY love holidays (I even to listen to Christmas music year-round while I work). It doesn’t matter if we’re having a 2-person holiday or a 10-person holiday. I try to make our holidays as festive, special, and joyous as I can. In today’s culture, a lot of that has to do with food. So, in addition to healthy recipes, you’ll also see lots of desserts and amazing savory recipes on here.
