4. Key Lime Pie Challenge We gave ABC’s The Chew a sneak peak of our Recipe Makeover in the upcoming July issue. Co-hosts Daphne Oz and Carla Hall went head-to-head in a Key Lime Pie competition pitting our lightened-up version, prepared by Daphne, against Carla’s more decadent version. Watch the full episode here or check out the short clip below. (Spoiler alert: When put to the taste test, the Cooking Light version won!)
