M is For .........

 This Saturday May 5th we celebrate Cinco De Mayo and the Running of The Roses,The Kentucky Derby. One can't celebrate either without a great cocktail and a treat can we ? So I thought I would share some recipes with you to commemorate the day! One of my very favorite cookies is a Mexican Wedding Cake,or { Mexican Tea  Cookies} . I love these!!!!

                                                          Mexican Wedding Cakes


                             Here is a great recipe for them from the  Joy of Baking

                                  How about a libation?? I do LOVE a good Margarita!



                    1 (6 ounce) can frozen limeade concentrate 6 fluid ounces tequila
                     2 oz of triple sec.

                                                       Mexican Chicken Salad!

                                This looks delicious, Chicken salad with a kick! recipe

Now, if you are more of a Kentucky Derby fan then there are a few recipes for you! The Mint Julep is the official drink of the derby. I am not a fan of them but thought I would share a recipe.

 Hope you enjoyed the recipes. My next couple posts are going to be a bit different in nature. I have been asked to review a couple of  products. One is a collection of cocktail mixers.{ funny enough}  and the other is a beach sarong, which I will then use for a giveaway! Stay tuned.Have a great Thursday!
