Trial and Error

Steve’s Authentic Key Lime Pie


Welcome to the very first video post!!!

This was something my boyfriend had been pushing me to do for a while but I was hesitant because I’m not entirely too eager to see and/or hear myself talk on video. Hearing one’s own voice on recording is always traumatizing and I wanted to spare my poor readers from that sure-to-be-horror.

You’re welcome, by the way.

But, he convinced me we could do it in a way where the most anyone would see are my slightly frightening hands.

So we took one of our favorite recipes, and decided to shoot it! And I totally fell in love with it, so don’t fret, this will not be the last of the video recipe!

Just to clarify- this is not my recipe. This is the recipe from Steve Tarpin, the owner of Steve’s Authentic Key Lime Pies, a shop found in Red Hook, Brooklyn.

ALSO: Since the eggs in the recipe are never cooked, make sure to buy pasteurized eggs. You can also pasteurize your own eggs, google will show you the way on that one.

    The pie looks amazing and I really like the way the video was shot and edited. It let you know what was going on without being too generic or boring. Brilliant work all round!

    Very very excellent video! Please post on the LiveJournal community again if another video comes up! (I saved the recipe in my Memories; can’t wait to try the recipe!) I absolutely loved it.

    WOW, that looks great! Seriously, nice production values, better than we’ve done. Mind if we use this on our website?

      Hey Steve! I’m really happy you enjoy the video, and yes! I’d love to see this on your website.

      Steve, we’d be absolutely honored! Thank you for asking! We wish we could stop by the shop anytime, but alas, the trek from Queens to Red Hook can be daunting in the winter months and sometimes we’re forced to make one ourselves. Would you at all be interested in filming some original content for your site? We’d love to be a bigger help to you.
