I love making quesadillas, and these loaded quesadillas are the best! It's a great meal that is easily customizable, and you only need a few simple ingredients to make them. The purest form of a quesadilla is just cheese melted into a tortilla, but these loaded quesadillas have black beans, salsa, chicken and peppers to add a lot of flavor and make them more filling and wholesome. These are great for a light lunch, snack, or dinner! You can easily make these gluten free by subbing the tortillas for corn ones, and you can skip the chicken to keep these vegetarian.
This stovetop chicken shawarma isn't slow roasted on a spit like traditional shawarma, but it has all the flavor and texture. Promise. The trick is in the cooking temperatures and a killer marinade that gives this amazing flavor. This shawarma is quick to make and is great in wraps, pita pockets and salads. Make a batch and keep it in your fridge and you'll have multiple lunch or dinner options ready in minutes!
When summer rolls around, and the supermarkets are full of gorgeous summer fruits, I buy them all! I recently got into making crostatas at home, and there is no better way to use up some of that summer fruit that in this quick and delicious apricot pear crostata. A crostata is basically a free form Italian pie, similar to a Galette. What I love about crostatas is that they let the fruit shine. The fruit is lightly sweetened and flavored and encased in a flaky pastry.
