This has a Strawberry cheesecake filling
I don't like heavy frosting so all the cakes I do I make a whip cream frosting.

I love all holidays. I don't decorate for them as much as I use to, but I do cook more for them. Our family s growing with marriage, boy friends and friends. I have always loved to cook but the past five years or so I just seem to love it even more. We had a great Easter with family and friends over for a BBQ. It was a lot of fun and two of my daughters that came helped with the food and then men BBQ the meat. I cook my chicken part way with spices the night before and make my own BBQ sauce. I was going to use a jar sauce but my huband was complaing about the jar sauce I used for his job's BBQ not tasting as good because it did not have my homemade sauce. I would post the recipe for my sauce but I never measure or make it the same way each time.

Mahi Mahi Lettuce Wraps

1 mango, diced
2 plum tomatoes, diced
1 red onion, diced
1/2 jalapenos, diced
3 tablespoons chopped cilantro leaves
2 limes, juiced
Salt and pepper
2 mahi mahi fillets
Olive oil, as needed
Lettuce leaves (recommended butter or romaine)

Preheat grill or grill pan to medium-high heat.
Combine the mango, tomatoes, jalapeno, cilantro and lime juice in a medium mixing bowl and season with salt and pepper. Season the fish with salt and pepper and brush with olive oil. Grill for roughly 3 to 4 minutes per side, until just opaque in the center. Set aside to cool
When slightly cool, chop into large chunks. Add to the reserved salsa and fold carefully as to not break up the fish. Add mixture to the middle of the lettuce leaves and roll.
