Margarita Pie



At the office where I work, we have a cinqo de mayo party every year. One year, Marsha brought in this amazing pie and gave me the recipe. It is tangy and perfect for a hot day. It has become a family favorite:

That looks really nice, the recipe looks pretty straight forward, I may try it out. I cannot guarantee how it will turn out for me though.

I have a friend who cooks cakes for me sometimes and they taste so much better that bought ones.

I've had the pleasure of having enjoyed this pie numerous times. It's very easy to make, it's delicious and so refreshing on a hot day. Which reminds me, maybe I should make that to take to Rick's aunt's this weekend! It's almost a no-fail recipe!

My mouth is watering but I would be the only one eating it so I won't be able to make it, darn it! Hubby isn't overly fond of pie except for pumpkin and I know if I made that I would eat ALL of it cause it looks so yummy! (drool) *sigh*
