Outdoor Quesadilla

Outdoor Quesadilla

Cheese quesadilla anyone? One of my favorite lunchtime treats cooked to perfection. Sitting outside and eating this cheesy treat is just one of the few highlights of my day.

Here’s an easy Cheese Quesadilla recipe:
4 (10-inch) flour tortillas
1 cup grated cheese, sharp Cheddar or Mexican blend
4 tablespoons butter
Sour cream (Optional)
Salsa (Optional)
Guacamole (Optional)

Lay the tortillas flat on a cookie sheet.
Sprinkle some of the cheese on 1 half of each tortilla.
Try not to get it too close to the edge.
Fold the tortillas in half over the cheese to make a half-moon.
Warm a skillet over low heat and add 1 tablespoon of the butter.
Add the tortilla to the skillet and cook until it is lightly brown, about 2 minutes.
Using a spatula, gently lift the edge so you can check.
When 1 side is brown, turn the tortilla over and cook the other side until brown and the cheese is all gooey.
Use a spatula to transfer to individual plates or a large platter.
Repeat with remaining butter and tortillas.
Top them with the sour cream, salsa, and guacamole (as preferred).


Donut on the Deck

Donut on the Deck

I feel like donuts might be a somewhat underrated dessert option… if someone asks me what my favorite dessert is I normally think about having to choose between brownies and cookies and cakes but for whatever reason I always forget about donuts. Meanwhile, they are, a lot of the time, the very dessert I find myself preferring.

I mean, there IS a National Donut Day for a reason!


Naked Juice on Fashion Avenue

Naked Juice on Fashion Avenue

It was a cloudy day in New York and with everyone taking the train and subway to work at the same time this morning, it was pretty hectic. But nothing like a little nudity to keep a fast-paced morning feeling calm, cool, and collected. And by nudity I mean Naked juice. Sips of this Berry Blast smoothie are enough to make any bustling morning feel relaxing.


Popsicle in Central Park

Popsicle in Central Park

Walking through Central Park in Manhattan on this beautiful day was absolutely fantastic. But it would honestly not have been as great had I not eaten this Reckless Rainbow Popsicle. It was a true flashback Friday for me today. Had not eaten one of these Pop Ups since I was just a little girl. It was a good day.

Try this great Popsicle idea:
1 (3-ounce) package fruit-flavored Jell-O mix
1 unsweetened, flavored soft drink mix package
1 cup white sugar
1 cup boiling water

In large pitcher, combine gelatin, soft drink mix, sugar and boiling water.
Stir until powders are dissolved.
Add enough cold water to make 2 quarts.
Pour into 3 oz. paper drinking cups and freeze until hardened.


Donut on Eddie’s Parade

Donut Daze

Sitting outside on Eddie’s Parade is one of the most satisfying activities with the coming of warm weather at Fordham University. Add a chocolate frosted donut with sprinkles (from Dunkin Donuts, of course) to the mix and I am one happy happy girl!
