What’s Cooking Wednesday — Vol. 1

Ladies, we are a smart group. So many of you run a home on a strict budget, but manage to serve good, healthy meals to your family while not breaking the bank. I love this, and I’m striving to get better at it!

So I’ve decided, as a way of celebrating our menu maven-ness (why yes, I did make that word up) that there should be a weekly (maybe bi-weekly?) day of sharing a new or favorite recipe. Share the wealth ladies, share the wealth!

I submit to you, the first “What’s Cooking Wednesday”! Let me know if you’re in by posting a link to your post in the comments section. Please feel free to use the image above if you’d like, as well.

What’s Cooking Wednesday?

Creamy Apple-Cinnamon Quesadilla

Prep time: 15 minutes  — Start to finish: 20 minutes — 4 servings (2 wedges each)

1 Tbsp. granulated sugar

1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon

1/4 cup reduced-fat cream cheese

1 Tbsp. packed brown sugar

1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon

2 whole wheat tortillas

1/2 small apple, cut into slices (about 1/2 cup)

cooking spray (or butter/margarine)

Directions:

1. In small bowl, mix granulated sugar and 1/4 tsp. cinnamon; set aside. In another small bowl, mix cream cheese, brown sugar, and 1/4 tsp. cinnamon with spoon.

2. Spread cream cheese mix over tortillas. Place apple slices on cream cheese mix on 1 tortilla. Top with remaining tortilla, cheese side down. Spray both sides with cooking spray, sprinkle with cinnamon/sugar mix.

3. Heat 10-inch skillet over medium heat. Add quesadilla; cook 2 to 3 minutes until bottom is brown and crisp. Turn; cook 2 to 3 minutes longer.

4. Remove quesadilla from skillet to cutting board; let stand 2 to 3 minutes. Cut into 8 wedges.

This would be delicious as a weekend breakfast or perhaps a snack or dessert!

    Oh my goodness, Sarah, what a fun and exciting idea! I think I’m particularly excited because we’re having fajitas tonight and I was just wondering what to do with the extra tortilla shells – problem solved!

    I will try to remember to get in on this next week. Also, where do you get all your fun retro images? I always enjoy them!
