My Mother’s Day dilemma: Tres Leches Cake or Frozen Strawberry Margarita Pie? Which dessert should compliment the Tex-Mex feast? So I posed the question in email to the guest of honor:

The cake sounds really good but anything with Margarita in the name has to be really good!!

I could not agree more. I am definitely my mother’s daughter.

Dessert was fun. The pie had a prominent strawberry flavor and had enough lime to make you think frozen fruity concoction. If you’re looking for tequila, though, pour yourself a shot with dessert. The 1/4 cup of liquor doesn’t go far… but then again, it never does
