This easy breakfast quesadilla is a great way to start your day – full of eggs, black beans and cheese! Only 10 minutes to cook.
I have been having some trouble with cooking. Every blog I look at, every cookbook or cooking magazine I open, every time I turn around… I see shellfish recipes. I keep thinking about how much I love eating shrimp, and crab, and lobster and since I developed this stupid allergy, I can’t eat them anymore.
I kind of feel like I need a vacation. That’s what happens when you are cooking/blogging/writing nonstop. Luckily for me, we are off to Vegas in a few weeks. Where every restaurant serves crab legs.
I know that is an exaggeration and they don’t all have crab legs – that’s just how it feels to me, girl who loves crab, which hurts girl.
In the meantime… I am not going to think about it too much. Instead, I am going to try to put up some recipes that 1) don’t stink and 2) are delicious. I think that is the hope of every food blogger, everywhere.
Easy Breakfast Quesadilla
I have been writing out an ongoing list of recipe ideas in an attempt to spark my cooking creativity. The idea that keeps resonating in my head, over and over, is this one. Easy breakfast quesadillas. Seriously, if you’re in a slump, take one of your favorite ingredients (in my case, black beans!!!) and make something easy with it.
I like breakfast and don’t eat the “most important meal of the day” often enough. So when I do eat breakfast, I prefer to keep it easy.
Mr. B. approves of this recipe. I approve. Nero wanted to approve – he tried to snatch a piece but we couldn’t let him. The smell of melting cheese dragged him in.
This easy breakfast quesadilla is a great way to start your day - full of eggs, black beans and cheese! Only 10 minutes to cook.
