Get excited, ladies! The Merry Month of May is within reach. We’re kicking it off with two recipes perfect for Cinco de Mayo. And to make it easy for you I’m partnering with Total Wine today which carries all the fixings for the perfect Margarita, Sangria or maybe you prefer a cold Cerveza. What I loved about Total Wine is that they share recipes for the perfect cocktail!

My best buddy Oscar is on deck today and he was oh so interested in the stuffed jalapeños I whipped up. It’s an easy recipe to make and serve and it’s pretty darn good if I do say so myself. Are you ready for the Cinco de Mayo version of  Fridays with Oscar? Me too!

The weather has been glorious this past week so it was time to head out to the screened porch. There’s nothing better than whiling away the day in a comfy chair with a cool breeze and no bugs! That’s the best part of a screened porch. And I love to entertain out here.

Scoop the shrimp mixture into the jalapeños and place back in over. Bake for ten minutes.

3. Tequila Sunrise

A Tequila Sunrise is as pretty to look at as it is to drink. And it’s so easy to make. Total Wine has all the fixings: tequila, orange juice, grenadine, and corona. Couldn’t be easier! But my kiddos love to sip on seltzers so I stocked up on Topo Chico Margarita Seltzers to have on hand.
