Mango Habanero Margarita

Happy National Margarita Day! I can’t think of a better day than one that is solely dedicated to margaritas!

Strawberry Dream Layer Cake

Strawberry Dream Layer Cake

Juicy strawberries are the main attraction in this made from-scratch Strawberry Layer Cake. Super moist and exploding with fresh strawberry flavor! Strawberry cake has been one of my favorite flavors since I tasted it at a wedding a few years ago. I was shocked to find how many strawberry cake recipes call for jello and/or cake mix! The recipe I bring you today is all natural. No cake mix, no jello. Just fresh,…
