Country Breakfast Casserole
My husband and I both thought this turned out just OK. We both agreed that we would have rather made the gravy separately and poured it on top of the finished casserole. I omitted the sausage because I did not have any and used frozen shredded potatoes mixed with green onion, salt, and pepper as the base. I served it with some turkey bacon on the side. I cut the bread into bigger strips instead of cubes, next time I will concentrate the bread around the edges of the casserole where it browned/toasted up nicely. The bread in the middle of the casserole was a little soggy. Overall it was very easy to make and you can use what you have on hand.

Seven Layer Tortilla Pie
This is one of those miracle recipes that is reasonably healthy, tastes great, budget friendly, easy to make, and easy to customize. Definitely a go to on those nights when you are just too tired to cook. I had some left over fresh made salsa from taco take-out the night before so I used that, I put the green salsa in the pintos and the red salsa in the black beans. You can find salsa verde (green salsa) at the store and it is made with tomatillos, onion, garlic, and jalapeno. It has a tart/tangy kick that paired well with the roasted flavor of the traditional red salsa. I also layered some corn in there for added flavor and vegetables. I only needed 3 tortillas to do my layering as I have a shallow pie dish and it came out perfect. I served it with a frozen vegetable mix (broccoli, carrot, squash, and cauliflower) which I sauteed in olive oil, butter, and garlic about half way through the bake time. Would pair equally well with calabacitas: sauteed onion, squash, and corn (frozen is fine, green chiles optional). If you like you can substitute whole wheat tortillas too! Garnished mine with sour cream, chopped green onions, and chopped fresh cilantro. Again a must try recipe and one to keep in your arsenal for those hectic tired evenings.

Super Easy Doughnuts
Great recipe, easy and uses minimal ingredients. The consistency is like a cake style doughnut. They are quick to make and fry up fast. I made them for my husbands birthday breakfast and he loved them. No waiting around for the dough to rise etc because there is no yeast. The updated ingredient amounts were perfect, and I used 6 TBL milk (3/8 c) and it came out great. Make sure to flour your surface and rolling pin well, the dough will seem sticky when first mixed but quickly comes together as you roll it out (assuming you floured your surface). I will definitely use this recipe again, what is more impressive than homemade doughnuts! Thanks, happy cooking!
