Tortilla Breakfast Casserole

The last recipe I'm sharing with you from our Galveston vacay is this DE-LISH tortilla breakfast casserole. You may recall from past posts like this one that I have a deep love for Mexican food. It's real, ya'll. 

So when I come across meals that are breakfast + Mexican....It's a no brainer. I doubled this tortilla breakfast casserole recipe from Macheesmo. The casserole turned out great and I even drizzled some leftover avocado cilantro sauce from our dinner the night before

When you get a chance, you should really check out Macheesmo's site. He offers some really fun recipes and some awesome meal plans. I will definitely be trying out other recipes and report back!

Fish Tacos with Avocado Cilantro Sauce

While in Galveston, we all chose different nights to cook dinner. We usually make really fun recipes, like my SIL making this Peach-Whiskey BBQ Chicken, which was amazing! 
Of course Jake and I were no different. I have a terrible habit of trying new recipes on occasions like this. So we were crossing our fingers that everything turned out well, and it did! Here's what we made: 

Fish Tacos with an Avocado Cilantro Sauce. These tacos were amazing! Besides sno cones, fish tacos are my #1 favorite summer (or any season) food. We even used fish that Jake had caught during the trip. And the sauce. Let me tell you how much I LOVED the sauce! We used it to dip tortilla chips while snacking and for the meal and it was gone in no time. It's a good one to keep on hand when having guests over.

Grilled Cilantro Lime Sweet Potatoes. Sweet potatoes are my jam...but not Jake's. So it's pretty rare that I get them. I've never really had sweet potatoes as a savory side dish, so when I saw this version, I knew I had to try it. The natural sweet of the sweet potato paired with the cilantro, lime and salt was a great combination. It still didn't convert Jake, but I'm a fan!

Grilled Zucchini with Lemon Zest. This Zucchini recipe is from Pioneer Woman. I knew that I could trust it (she has yet to steer my wrong) and it of course was delicious. We've grilled zucchini before, but the added lemon flavor was a nice addition. 

As good as our trip and this food was, I am 100% ready for Fall! 16 days til OU Football!

Brown Butter & Vodka Rice Krispie Treats

Rice Krispie treats have always been one of my favorite snacks. When I saw Chris Castro's fancy adult version, I couldn't wait to give it a go!

  • 3 TBSP of butter
  • 1 pkg/10 oz of marshmallows 
  • 6 cups rice krispies cereal
  • 1 oz Iced Tea Vodka (Castro's version used bourbon, but I used what I had, and what I had was Iced Tea vodka!) 
  • 1 TSP vanilla extract
  • Sea Salt 
1. In a large saucepan brown the butter over low heat, making sure not to let it burn. Mix in the marshmallows until well coated with butter.
2. Place the marshmallows on a lined cookie sheet and broil until they are golden brown. Pour back into the saucepan and stir until marshmallows are melted. Pour in the vanilla and alcohol of your choice and stir until combined.
3. Add in rice krispies and stir until well coated.
4. Dump the mixture onto a lined baking sheet and press into form. Sprinkle with sea salt and let stand for 10 minutes. Cut into squares.
