Greek Quesadillas Though we love spending time in our kitchen, most weeknights we’re not up for much of a challenge. We generally save our cooking adventures for the weekend (though sometimes we find some unexpected mid-week inspiration!). Here’s some mid-week inspiration for a dish that’s incredibly easy to put together, but seems inspiring none the less. (And, you can capitalize on local winter greens, if they’re readily available in your area!) Quesadillas are a common go-to meal for us, but we’d never tried them with Mediterranean flavors. Turns out the quesadilla lends itself well to ethnic interpretations (much like our experiments with Mexican and Greek pizza). The recipe below includes the ingredients that we used, but it is easy to customize to your pantry ingredients and individual tastes. Thanks to Homestead Growers for the spinach (at the Indy Winter Farmer’s Market)! Greek Quesadillas Chiffonade the spinach.

Panko Mozzarella Sticks! I first discovered panko bread crumbs back in 1999. Please don’t ask me how I know that; I just do. I remember vividly reading a recipe that contained panko bread crumbs, and I remember vividly that I was nursing my second baby, and I remember vividly that I was hormonal and desperate, and the next thing I knew I was ordering panko bread crumbs from some market in Chelsea that the magazine recommended. On the phone, of course, because although I had a computer at the time, I certainly wouldn’t have been cool enough to use it to order panko bread crumbs. Plus, I was nursing. Not enough hands. Panko bread crumbs, in a word, are delicious. Panko are Japanese breadcrumbs, and are lighter and flakier than regular breadcrumbs. When I set out to make a recipe with panko bread crumbs, I started in the direction of something Asian/exotic. So guess what I did? Let me back up: my family LOVES fried mozzarella sticks. Here we go: Panko Mozzarella Sticks! Grab the panko breadcrumbs. A couple of eggs…

Three Safe-to-Eat Cookie Doughs: Chocolate Chip, Sugar, and Cake Batter! Willow Bird Baking - StumbleUpon I’m siiiiick. If you follow Willow Bird Baking on Facebook or Twitter (you do, right?), you’ve probably heard me whining about it lately (okay, maybe this isn’t the best way to encourage you to follow). It started with a sore throat and has turned into a beastly, phlegmatic ogre of a cold that has taken up residence in my chest and commenced hanging draperies and such. I have protested this development with various hot teas, soups, and my favorite home remedy suggested by readers: complaining. Three Safe-to-Eat Cookie Doughs: Chocolate Chip, Sugar, and Cake Batter! I know my students are to blame for this plague! I can’t stay home until I’m better, but I do tend to baby myself when I’m sick.

And now, look how far I’ve come: this weekend I made not one, but three kinds of cookie dough! So, in summary: I’m sick. Safe-to-Eat Sugar Cookie Dough

The Brownie That Will Change Your Life Let me start off by saying that viewer discretion is advised for today’s post. OK now with the story that preludes possibly the greatest brownie I have ever sunk my teeth in thus far in my life. Last Saturday Mrs. Zesty had a baby shower to attend and she was designated for a dessert/sweet treat for the girls. Last week was a bit of a zoo and I think I forgot about prepping this dessert until Friday afternoon at work. I knew time was tight and I didn’t want to spend all night Friday night to prep a dessert. This recipe, I cannot take any credit for and nor will I try as it is compliments of Nestle Toll House and as you can see from the reviews…. Ingredients 1 pkg.

Don’t look at me that way. Half of this mixture is pureed, making the entire dish incredibly creamy. This was an awesome change up for a side dish, and something totally new-to-me.
