It's almost Cinco de Mayo, and I am THRILLED to find out that one of my favorite "adult beverages" is now available at Chili's. Yes, the CoronaRita at Chili's has made me a happy girl, and just in time for Cinco de Mayo! Not that I need an excuse really....date night, family night, girls night....whatev. Chili's is a fun place to get a great meal, and of course, a great drink ;)
How's that for a little mouth watering enticement?! Or what about ......

The Fajita Trio...just in case you are like me and can't make up your mind if you want steak, chicken or shrimp! I believe that would go great with a CoronaRita!
Of course, I also love these...
Sliders and fries! (They would also go well with a CoronaRita. Just sayin'.)
*Just in case you are wondering what this drink is that I'm so excited about...it's a Margarita made with Jose Cuervo Especial Tequila and a Coronita. Yummers! I've always called them beer margaritas, but CoronaRita is a cool name for it!
And of course, I can't forget dessert...
My girls and I like to split this 'Chocolate Chip Paradise Pie'. Of course, I would like to eat the entire thing by myself. But I refrain. Most of the time.
I like Chili's because it's a fun place to take the kids, and my local Chili's has their allergen information posted on the website, so it makes it a much less stressful place to take my little allergy boy. But not only is it kid-friendly, it's also a fun place to go for a 'date night'. Not that I've been able to have one of those in a while ;(
So what about you? Do you have a Chili's nearby? What is your favorite entree and drink? I have a tendency to always order the same things (chicken or burgers), so I would love to get some feedback. I need to broaden my tastebud horizons. And I can always wash it all down with a CoronaRita :) Yes, I sort of have that on the brain now. Must.Go.To.Chili's! Who wants to join me?!
You must be 21 years of age or older to drink alcoholic beverages, and as always, drink responsibly!

Cake Mix Doctor
- In a large mixing bowl, mix the cake mix, pudding mix, sugar, water, oil, 1/3 cup lime juice, ¼ cup tequila, 2 tablespoons orange liqueur, lime zest and eggs in a large mixing bowl. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed until the ingredients are combined, abt 30 seconds. Scrape down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula and mix on medium speed for 1½ minutes longer, scraping down the side of the bowl again if needed. The batter should look smooth and thick. Pour the batter into the prepared Bundt pan, smoothing the top with the rubber spatula, and place the pan in the oven.
- Bake the cake until the top springs back when lightly pressed with a finger, 42 to 47 minutes. Transfer the Bundt pan to a wire rack and let the cake cool for 10 to 15 minutes. Run a long, sharp knife around the edges of the cake, shake the pan gently, and invert the cake onto a wire rack. Let the cake cool completely, about 25 minutes longer. (My cake pulled away from the sides as it cooled and I didn't need to run a knife along the sides of the pan. It came out easily, unlike this one! My cake also fell some. ALL my cakes fall...I don't know what I'm doing wrong!)
- Meanwhile, make the glaze: Place the confectioners’ sugar, 1 tablespoon tequila, 1 tablespoon orange liqueur, 1 tablespoon lime juice, and the lemon and orange Stevia drops in a small bowl and whisk until smooth. Slide the cake onto a serving plate. Using a long wooden skewer poke 12 to 16 holes in the top of the cake. Spoon the glaze over the top of the cake, letting it drip down the sides.
Garnish the cake with the lime slices and a sprinkling of coarse sugar.Let the glaze set for 10 minutes, then slice and serve the cake.

Easter is Sunday! I can't believe we are already into April. Sunday is also Mr. Three's birthday! Soooo....I guess after this weekend he will technically be Mr. Four. It seems like I just gave birth to the kid, and here he is turning 4, getting SO tall, and spraying my toilet with.....oops....sorry. TMI.
Since I have been focused on birthday party stuff (yes, we just had a birthday around here) I haven't done any cute little Easter stuff. So, I thought I would post a few things from last year, and things I have planned for the weekend.

Thank goodness I had some quick and easy recipes pinned! Like this 'Chocolate Pudding Dump Cake' by Eat, Live, Run. It looked super delicious, but only required 4 ingredients. Holla! I was all over it.
