WIP: I Spy a Special Thing…

13 Oct

Wip Wednesday 10_13

What could it be?  Hehe, I’m super excited about this one! But I need new needles to arrive in the mail so I can finish it. 😉

In the mean time, I must finish the purple scarf I am making for my father as soon as possible since his birthday is next week. With my fellowship, I have less time to finish it. But one week should be more than enough. 😀

Traveling Thursdays: San Franciso

7 Oct

Today’s “Traveling Thursdays” destination is San Francisco. I absolutely love San Francisco and can’t wait to go back. It’s my second favorite city in America! The food, the hills, cable cars, pretty houses, diversity, all attract me to this place I truly left my heart in San Francisco, so much so I wouldn’t mind living there! Shhh, don’t tell NYC.

Apple & Cheddar Quesadillas

5 Oct

Lately, I’ve been obsessed with making quesadillas for a quick snack!  They are absolutely delicious and can be made in about 5 minutes!  You can pretty much make them with anything, but here’s how I like mine:

Ingredients:

Shredded Cheddar Cheese

Apple Slices

Tortillas

Quesadillas1

Instructions: Sprinkle some cheddar cheese  (about two tablespoons) on half a tortilla, add some apple slices, sprinkle more cheese on top, and fold the tortilla in half.  I use a sandwich press and just press it until the cheese is melted.  If you don’t own a sandwich press you can just use a skillet but make sure to use some cooking spray if you are afraid it will stick.  Make sure to turn the folded quesadilla so that it cooks evenly on each side.

Note: You can replace cheddar cheese with any other cheese you like and/or use ham, or some left over chicken, whatever you like instead of apples for a savory snack and add guacamole or sour cream as a side.  I love to make these with smoked turkey ham for a savory snack or lunch!
