Get ready for Cinco de Mayo by whipping up some easy margarita cupcakes


A margarita in cupcake form is perfect for Cinco de Mayo.

This easy recipe uses boxed cake mix, which simplifies the process, but don’t be afraid to swap that for homemade white cake if you’d prefer.

You will need:

Cupcakes
1 box white cake mix
3 large eggs
½ cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup lime juice
1/3 cup tequila
1 tablespoon lime zest
1/3 cup buttermilk

Frosting
8 ounces cream cheese
½ cup unsalted butter
2 cups powdered sugar
2 tablespoons lime juice
1 tablespoon tequila
½ tablespoon lime zest
Green food coloring

Brush your baked cupcakes with tequila.

Once they’re frosted, rim them with sanding sugar on the outer edge of the frosting to complete the margarita effect.

A video of the process, from TipHero, is below:

This pork tenderloin is like no other around -- here’s where to get it

Long ago in a town not so far away (Centerville, to be exact), there was a little butcher shop called Zinks Meats and it was good. >> A look inside the new Zinks Meats and Fine Wines How good?

Some tips on making the perfect summer breakfast: waffles

I never envisioned myself as a person who would spend $200 on a waffle maker. Turns out I am, and the mortifying extent to which I’ve come to love this stainless steel beauty is tipping dangerously into character-flaw territory.  Weighing in at 12 pounds, this is one substantial appliance — it reminds me of the heavy, no-nonsense General...
