The language in the video at the link below is Chinese. Ignore the language and just watch the demonstration.
Watch the simple and effective method of separating an egg yolk from the white. It is a simple and straight forward application of hydraulics.


Cathy Stevenson from Brainerd, Minnesota called recently to follow up on a Key Lime Juice order.  She makes the No-Bake Key Lime Cheesecake in muffin pans and uses Splenda in place of sugar so diabetic friends can also enjoy this treat.   Cathy says she makes her own graham cracker crumb mixture and presses it into muffin pans then puts the filling in.  Everyone has their own little cheesecake.  Making double recipes and freezing them means there is always a treat to serve when company stops in.  Once removed from the freezer it doesn't take long before it is a frosty treat easy to eat. 

Thank you Cathy for sharing.  Below is the recipe for your reference.


8 oz. cream cheese, softened

1/3 cup sugar

4 oz. Florida Key West   Key Lime Juice

8 oz. container frozen whipped topping, thawed

Beat cheese until smooth.  Gradually beat in sugar and blend in Key Lime Juice until smooth.  Fold whipped topping into mixture and blend well.  Spoon into 9-inch graham cracker crust pie shell.  Chill until set, at least 4 hours.  Top with graham cracker crumbs or whipped topping if desired.

How about a Key Lime Coconut Angel Cake for the back to school parties and upcoming holiday celebrations?  This is a very pretty cake.

1/3 cup Florida Key West Key Lime juice

1 container (12oz) frozen whipped topping, thawed

1 cup flaked coconut

Sliced strawberries or kiwifruit for decoration if desired.

Make cake mix as direct on package, using cold water.  Cool cake completely.  Cut cake horizontally into 3 layers.  Place bottom layer, cut side up, on serving plate.

In large bowl, beat milk and key lime juice with wire whisk until smooth and thickened.  Fold in whipped topping.

Spread 1 cup mixture evenly over top of first layer of cake.  Place second layer carefully onto first.  Spread evenly with 1 cup mixture then top with remaining layer of cake.
