Greek Quesadillas

Ok so technically this does not fall into Mexican…as far as I’m concerned 😉 This was sooo good! A great alternative for a meatless dinner with fresh veggies. I must admit, I forgot the black olives. I love olives too, my husband didn’t mind though since he hates them! I’m known to forget an ingredient every time I make something and since we live across the street from a supermarket you would think that it would be easy to just pop over and pick up what I forgot but as I was already there TWICE today I said screw it. This dish was still amazing without the olives but I will make it again complete with every ingredient 🙂

enjoy!

Here’s the recipe:

Ingredients

2 roasted vine ripe tomatoes

2 cups chopped baby spinach

1/3 chopped red onion

1 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese

1/3 cup feta cheese

1 small can of sliced black olives

olive oil

dried oregano

roasted red pepper

10″ whole wheat tortillas

Directions

Lightly brush one side of tortilla

turn tortilla over and place chopped spinach, red onion, roasted red pepper and roasted tomato and top with shredded cheese, feta and sprinkle oregano. Fold in half and place in frying pan on medium heat. cook until side has browned and turn over until cheese is melted (only a couple minutes each side should be enough). Viola!

Hawaiian Salad

I can’t take credit for this recipe, my Grandmother used to make it frequently (along with many others I’m sure) and when my Mom mentioned she made it I jumped for joy.  I haven’t had this since sweet salad for years and it brings back so many nice memories of my Grandmother and family gatherings during the hot summer months. This simple salad contains mandarin oranges, pineapple, mini marshmallows and shredded coconut. It’s perfect when chilled out of the refrigerator on a hot humid day!

Dressing up Lo Mein

I looked up a basic Lo Mein recipe and added my own twist to it. I wanted to show the graduation of dressing it up, it was very flavorful (next time I would cut back on the soy sauce) and had a nice bite to it thanks to the crushed red pepper flakes. Recipe after the pretty pictures 🙂

Veggie Lo Mein

Ingredients

1/2 Cup low sodium soy sauce

2 Tbsp Canola oil

2 Tbsp Sesame oil

2 Tbsp Rice Vinegar

2 Tbsp crushed red pepper

2 Tbsp Cilantro

1/2 Cucumber

1/4 cup shredded Carrots

1/2 cup steamed Broccoli

garnish with fresh Cilantro

Combine oils, vinegar, crushed pepper and cilantro and dress thin spaghetti, top with broccoli, carrots and cucumber. Toasted Sesame seeds were not on hand and I wish I bought some because they would have definitely added to the flavor. Enjoy!

 

Buffalo Chicken BLAT Wraps

I found this recipe from the Iowa Girl Eats blog and I’m so happy I did. See I have a love affair with anything buffalo and this healthy dish hits the spot. Not the typical BLT this also adds some Avacado…I urge you all to try this out if you’re also a buffalo flavor fan! You can find her recipe HERE.

Kielbasa breakfast skillet

I threw some of my favorite things together for breakfast this morning…Kielbasa, Potatoes and Eggs! Add a little salt, pepper and garlic and viola! Kielbasa reminds me of big Portuguese family cook outs with Kielbasa, corn on the cob, steamers, little necks and more!

Cake in a cup.

I found this recipe online through…yup you guessed it! Foodgawker! The husband LOVED it so much he ate two! I love that I have all of the ingredients in my house all the time so this is something that I can make on a whim when I have a sweet tooth, isn’t it great when things work out?!
