Margarita Cake with Key Lime Cream Cheese Frosting
absolutely PERFECT! I made cupcakes with the recipe and didn't change a thing. I did beat the eggs whites separately and then add to the batter. I made a lime butter cream frosting because they were for an outdoor party and I didn't want cream cheese in the sun. The lime buttercream was delicious with this cake. Unfortunately, I don't measure, but I did use 2 sticks of butter, 2 tsp vanilla, the juice of two limes and then added powdered sugar until I got the taste and consistency I wanted. I added a little green food color and used crystalized sugar around the edge to give it a 'salted margarita" look and added a small wedge of fresh lime. They were a huge hit!

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork
Very tasty - the first time I made it, I followed the directions exactly and found the pork was a little bit dry. I used a larger pork roast the next time and it was much better - I think the tenderloin is too lean for this recipe. I have also substituted Miller Lite for root beer and it was fantastic!
