toaster oven quesadilla (revisited!)

hi, sister three here! can i just say that Earth Fare is my favorite store ever- the freezer area is so neat and clean, despite the store being six months to a year old (i don’t remember). everything is organized perfectly, they offer awesome products, and have delicious food! speaking of delicious food, i picked up some tortillas and colby jack from there, determined to make quesadillas with my brand new toaster oven. and my oh my did they work. they’re crispy, cheesy, and made in less than 10 minutes. also, they’re pretty hard to mess up!

you will need:

cheese of your choice (i used colby jack)

tortillas (whole-wheat, corn, etc.)

oil (optional)

directions:
1. grate your cheese until you have as much as you want- it’s all up to you! also, preheat oven to 450 degrees.

2. place and scatter cheese over the tortilla, making sure to have an even distribution.

3. place the other tortilla on top of the one with the cheese and brush some oil over it (for crispiness, optional)

4. cook for 8 minutes- you can flip it but i opted not to. enjoy!


Raw, Vegan, and Delicious Cheesecake!

hi, sister three here! i’ve become more interested in the vegetarian/vegan lifestyle and when i realized that that i had cashews, i immediately turned to chocolatecoveredkatie.com. they have so many nut-based desserts and i’ve always wondered if they’d work and wow, it works! i didn’t even soak the cashews for 8 hours, i only soaked them for three (i was impatient) and it was perfect. i had to let the “cheesecake” rest for a bit while i was blending it because the mixture kept on heating up. i also had to freeze the cheesecake for half an hour or so to firm it up without giving it too many ice crystals. for those wondering about the cashews, trust me you won’t even taste them! i don’t think that this cheesecake can fool someone into thinking that it’s a New York cheesecake, but it’s so delicious that they won’t notice. you can make a graham cracker crust with vegan butter (i think), or use the crust offered in chocolatecoveredkatie’s post. i really hope that you decide to make this considering you probably have every ingredient needed (besides maybe cashews) and enjoy it as much as i do!
