30-Minute Weeknight Veggie Quesadillas

30-Minute Weeknight Veggie Quesadillas

So, today’s post was a bit of a struggle for me. I contemplated trashing it altogether, and very nearly did! Not because the recipe isn’t good (I literally eat it all the time, probably far too often actually), but because it is a quesadilla.

And, let’s be honest, I’m not sure if these quesadillas warrant a recipe. It really isn’t all that complicated or mind-blowing. It is, however, tasty and easy. But one of the areas of the blog that I’m trying to work on and improve is my recipe archive.

As much as I love to challenge myself and do crazy things like make chocolate tarts and top them with spun sugar, I also realize that the majority of us, including myself, don’t have time for that kind of thing. Everyday life and spun sugar don’t really jive. Insert sad face.

Also, one of the things that the vast majority of you asked (in the survey) to see more of, in regards to recipes, was…wait for it…weeknight-friendly recipes! Many of you also requested more vegetarian recipe as well.

Cue these 30-minute weeknight (coincidentally, vegetarian) quesadillas. Just another reason why I am so glad that I decided to do a survey!

Pear Smoothie with Vanilla, Honey, & Lime Zest

Fall is full of so many wonderful foods, but there is one that I just can’t live without at this time of year. Bartlett pears! They are my absolute favorite snack and I can easily eat three or four of them in a day. I pick up one or two of...

The Sunday Thymes

The Sunday Thymes

This was the week of egg yolk breakage. The worst! Real deal yeasted apple cider donuts. Beetle pancakes!!! (Don’t worry, they’re not actually made with beetles.) This candied bacon maple walnut ice cream. Yes. Easy sourdough bread. I’m so excited about this. This huckleberry lemon verbena cake is totally...

Green-Lentil Soup with Coconut Milk & Indian Spices

Oh, lentil soup! One of my absolute favorites. All I need in the world is a good bowl of soup, and a crusty piece of bread. I could live on the stuff. I’ve talked about my love of lentil soup (and side of grilled cheese) before. My mom makes one...

Butter 101: How to Make Clarified Butter, Ghee, & Brown Butter

Hi, let’s talk butter. All types of butter too! I don’t discriminate. Clarified butter, ghee, and brown butter. I’m going to talk about it all. And trust me, it is all good (warning: this is totally where I get nerdy when it comes to food).  [Also, I apologize in advance...

Pumpkin Chocolate Chunk Espresso Muffins with Coffee Glaze Drizzle -- so easy and flavorful!

I can’t decide what I love more about these muffins. The pumpkin, big chunks of bittersweet chocolate, distinct espresso aroma and flavor, or that dreamy coffee glaze (with a hint of flowery vanilla). Hint: It’s not the pumpkin. If I’m being completely honest, this might be one of the last pumpkin recipes...

Reader Survey

Oh man, where do I start? So much has been happening behind-the-scenes around here for the past couple months! I barely even know where to begin! So, I’ll give a mini-update on everything. I have no idea if you’re interested, but it might explain a lot, so here we go. Wedding...
