Healthy Tilapia Street Tacos Recipe with Gorton's

I'm excited to be partnering up with Gorton's today to share a tasty tilapia street taco recipe that will be a hit at your next Taco Tuesday gathering.

Gorton's Skillet Crisp Lightly Battered Tilapia- a healthy choice for those on Weight Watchers.
 
As most of you know, I've been doing Weight Watchers for awhile now. I really like the flexibility of the plan, but for me to be truly successful and in control I find it's best to make my meals at home. This has been a pleasant and fun experience since moving into the new house because I puffy heart my kitchen.

For my Weight Watchers friendly recipe with Gorton's, I chose to use their Skillet Crisp Lightly Battered Tilapia. I love fried foods in tacos (hence why I'm on Weight Watchers...the struggle is real), and this tilapia has a gorgeous, light, crispy batter that I knew would be amazing in a taco.

Blush, Fawn & Gold Feminine Office Inspiration

We've been in the house for almost a month, and it's finally starting to feel like "home". We love our home. This past weekend I finally got around to trying to get my home office in some sort of order to be more productive and stop working on the couch or kitchen island. Pee Wee is loving the house, too.

Dog looking out of an office window.

The walls are currently alabaster, a creamy/warm white, and I have my white desk from Big Lots, a rug from Rugs USA, gold vittsjo's, and a gilt bamboo console table in here (that I stole from the living room...). Here is my office in its current messy state. Don't judge me!

Fall Peach Cobbler Cocktail Recipe

Fall peach cobbler cocktail recipe using Alize Peach Passion French Vodka- so easy and delicious! | via monicawantsit.com

Thank you all so much for your input on my rug saga! I think for now we're going to hang tight until we decide on a sofa. But, I do have something for you all today as a token of my everlasting appreciation for you... a cocktail recipe!

Cheers!

I'm thrilled to partner up with Alizé via One2One Network to showcase their delicious Peach Passion and Gold Passion liqueurs today. All opinions and cocktail creations are my own. 

At a super affordable price point of about $17, Alizé infuses premium French Vodka with delicious, fresh flavors from all over the world. It's great on its own over ice or used as a mixer to create a cocktail which is what I opted for today.

Peach is one of my most favorite flavors, so I thought about what kind of fall cocktail would be great using peach. Then it came to me- a peach cobbler-esque cocktail. I did several trials to get the recipe ratios perfect, and my husband even gave his stamp of approval (he's a craft beer guy, so for him to get excited about a cocktail says a lot).
