Quickest Dinner Ever - Chicken Quesadilla's

Whenever I buy a Rotisserie Chicken I generally make Chicken Quesadilla's. I've never blogged it because it doesn't seem much like a recipe but for a novice cooker, or a kitchen inept husband, this makes a delicious quick snacky type meal.... For us they're perfect to make when we only have about 10 minutes to make dinner because we have a busy night ahead of us (I made these the night "The Dark Knight" came out because we wanted to watch it but since it's not a short movie I wanted a quick dinner so it was 30 minutes from cooking to eating to clean up essentially!)

Chicken Quesadilla's

Ingredients
Flour Tortilla Shells
Shredded Chicken, cooked
Taco Blend Cheese
Taco Seasoning (or your own blend of spices such as: Cumin, Cayanne Pepper, Garlic Powder and Chili Powder)
a little bit of butter

Directions
- Sprinkle desired amount of taco seasoning on shredded chicken and mix well to flavor the chicken
- Heat some butter in a non-stick skillet (med. - med. high heat)
- Take a flour tortilla and top with desired amount of chicken and cheese (I like mine cheesy!)
- Top with another tortilla
- Carefully place in hot skillet and cook for about 2-4 minutes per side, until golden brown and cheese is melted and chicken is heated through
- Repeat with remaining tortillas until you make the desired amount
- Cut in to 1/4s or 1/6s
** we eat ours plain but you could serve with salsa, quac, sour cream, etc.
** to add more depth of flavor you could add sweated onions and peppers before heating the quesadillas

Key Lime Gooey Butter Cake

I'm from St. Louis.  The home of Gooey Butter Cake.  Many people think it's a Paula Deen creation, and how could you not when you see how much butter is in it, but you can't go in to a restaurant, bakery or grocery store without seeing gooey butter somewhere in St. Louis.  We love it.  What's not to love with butter, cream cheese, powdered sugar, oh my!

But, considering I've made it numerous times, I'm always up for a new variation.  Nutella?  Check!  Cookies?  Don't mind if I do!  Pumpkin?  Well of course!  While talking to my mom about what to bring to a family function, she mentioned she saw a recipe for key lime gooey butter cake.  Sold!  I've never heard of the website she sent over to me, but it looked similar to the basics of every other recipe I've used for Gooey Butter Cake so I knew I wanted to give it a try!

One thing people may not realize is that Gooey Butter Cake is very easy to make.  Just a few ingredients really!  Just mix them, ba…

Nutella Cannoli

Nutella is something that I love, but honestly don't really eat or bake with that often, always regretting that fact each time I eat something with Nutella. Well, I am vowing to change my ways - starting with these Cannolis!  They're definitely not a traditional cannoli as the combination of cream cheese and whipped cream make them more like a cheesecake filling, or even mousse, but the cannoli shell makes them easy to grab and eat.  No fork required - my kind of dessert!


Usually I prefer to make mini cannolis because sometimes full ones are just too rich for me, however any recipe could easily be adapted to a regular cannoli shell size (or mini size if the case may be).  The combination of the cream cheese, whipped cream and Nutella definitely made these a rich bite-size dessert, that I think may become one of my go-to recipes when I need to make something quick and impressive.

Beach Party Cupcakes AND 100th Blog Post

I saw these cupcake pops on Bakerella's site and just knew I had to use the idea sometime. When thinking about something fun to make for 4th of July I thought about something summery that the kids would enjoy so obviously a cute cupcake would do the trick and what's more fun in the summer than fireworks and swimming? Not much, I'll tell you that! Knowing that everything is fireworks galore on the 4th I decided to go the swimming route and make these cupcakes. Not only were they adorable, it really only took an extra 10 minutes to decorate than if I were to frost a plain-jane cupcake. Surf's Up! (aw man, I wish I had made some surfin little dudes! I'll have to remember that for next time!)
