Mouthwatering Mondays {Week 48}

Happy Cinco de Mayo!


How was your weekend?  Did you do anything fun?

We got a bit dirty and did a 5K as a family, it was a blast!

Color Fun Fest 5K in Houston

#ColorFunFest #EpicTour

I can’t wait to see what you’ve been sharing with your families and friends this week!  Bring on the delicious recipes, but first, here are a few favorites from last week’s Mouthwatering Mondays

  • Tiramisu is pretty much one of my favorite decadent treats – if I’m at a restaurant and they have Tiramisu on their menu, it’s pretty much a given that I’ll order it.  I’ve tried making Tiramisu at home, but haven’t had any luck — yet.  I’m a southerner, therefore Poke cake is pretty much the cake of my people, combine that with Tiramisu.. and my little Southern heart did a double flip.  Y’all have to check out this gorgeous Tiramius Poke Cake from Life With The Crust Cut Off.

  • Tequila.  Lime.  Fudge.  Did your mouth just pucker and salivate just a little bit?  Mine did as soon as I saw that recipe title, and then when I saw the bright, zesty picture of The Sweet Chick’s Tequila Lime Coconut Fudge and read all about the balance of the tequila, the coconut, and the chocolate…. well, I was sold.  I may have to make some of this for our block Cinco de Mayo party, or because it’s Monday, or a day that ends in Y, or maybe because my tequila bottle in the pantry is now looking just a bit tastier.  I blame The Sweet Chick, or I thank her?  I’m not sure yet.  Either way.. check out her Tequila Lime Coconut Fudge recipe.
