Margarita Cake with Key Lime Cream Cheese Frosting
Made this for my sister's "Beach Theme" bridal shower. We didn't change a single thing from the recipe. I actually doubled the cake batter and made in two sizes of springform pans so I could make a layer cake. We used one batch of frosting and dyed it blue like the ocean. I got SO many compliments on the cake - on how it fit the theme, on how great it tasted and looked. Even my husband wants me to remake this. I used the frozen Bacardi Daiquiri mix (same as margarita, since the difference is the kind of alcohol). I will definitely make again - this was a huge hit!

Alfredo Mostaccioli
I altered this a bit. I made 2 lbs of vermicelli noodles (family of 6) and tripled the sauce recipe. I used half and half instead of heavy cream, and I was a bit shy on the parmesan so I added finely shredded mozz cheese. I did not add any additional salt, since I was using salted butter. And I needed to add flour to thicken the sauce. However the end result was SO good. I added broccoli and mushrooms to the dish for a rounded meal. Next time I will include chicken or shrimp. Thanks for sharing - it's a great base to build from!

Grilled Lemon Herb Pork Chops
I'm giving this 3 stars because while the flavors were good, our chops were tough and chewy.
