creamy, cheesy, chicken quesadillas

Many nights in high school I would eat dinner at my friend’s house. They made the best chimichangas and they were served up along side homemade chips. The best homemade chips you will find! The other night I made the chimichangas and thought fondly of my high school days and the many nights spend around their table. chicken quesadillas As I was cooking up the chicken this time around I thought, “Why not turn this filling into quesadillas?” So I made the filling, put it in the fridge for the next night and set out to make quesadillas. And boy were they good! The sauce is the perfect balance of creamy and cheesy and the crisp shell is the perfect complement to the soft ingredients inside. creamy chicken quesadillas These make for a great quick dinner or perfect for an appetizer for a night of mexican food. I hope you enjoy this yummy, quick meal. I know my whole family does.

bruschetta

I have been on the search for the perfect bruschetta since I had it at Macaroni Grill, on a date with my hubby. It was so yummy, and the very dish that keeps us going back over, and over, and over again. I have tried a few times recreate it, and its fallen short. It was missing something, but I just couldn’t figure out what it was.

The other night we had our church small group over for dinner. A good friend of mine brought bruschetta. It was heavenly. I asked her for the recipe and she sent it my way. Hers was a warm bruschetta, with yummy melted mozzarella on top. Very delish. What I didn’t know while eating it was that it held the secret ingredient in it. It was the missing link! I needed to taste that yummy, warm, gooey, delight to figure out what mine was missing – oil packed SUN DRIED TOMATOES! It was love at first taste. MMM MMM good.

If you like bruschetta, hey, even if you don’t, you should try this recipe. It’s so yummy. Hey, and if you’re like me, you can skip it as an appetizer and eat as your straight up dinner. You won’t be disappointed. I promise.
