We served these green beans with Blue Cheese Bacon-wrapped Chicken. They required similar ingredients and they paired well together. I was worried it would be too much bacon and blue cheese on the plate at first… but then I realized… the more the merrier, right? Well, I hoped so and it turned out to be a delicious pairing!
The green beans are super simple and super delicious (my favorite combo). Even if you don’t use them as a side for the chicken, you MUST try them!
It seems that the recipes of my own that turn out best are the ones that come from a need to make dinner without making a trip to the grocery store.
I wanted to do a ‘Blue Cheese’ quesadilla recipe, but all the ones I found had a LOT of ingredients and that’s just not in the budget for this month (or most months!) I decided to go for making my own ‘recipe’ again and added blue cheese to the mix. I got some ideas from chefs online: triple decker style instead of just two tortillas and grilling the quesadilla instead of cooking it in the pan. Both of these things are new favorites, and I think we’ll use them in ALL future quesadillas… especially the grilling them part!… SO delicious!
I really LOVE recipes that include a small amount of ingredients and BIG flavor! This recipe does just that. Here is everything you will need:
Really… that’s it!… That is ALL you need!
The blue cheese is the most expensive item, but if you can find it on sale (I did!)… it’s worth trying.
Here’s my recipe: Blue Cheese Quesadillas
The FINAL apple recipe is here!
This post is only for “Apple Tarts” but I did do another “A is for Apple” dessert: Apple Tatin! You can find that HERE!
I really LOVE these dessert recipes I found because they are fancy, decadent and delicious! However, they are not super complicated to make, and they don’t require a bunch of ingredients that I will use one time and then never use again.
They both come from Ina Garten and they are her take on French dessert classics.
I was going to end with this recipe because it was my FAVORITE of all the apple recipes… I decided against this because I wanted anyone who bought (or is going to buy) ham for their “Apple, Ham & Brie Sandwich” to get a double-duty use out of their ham. The ham with the brie and apples was a wonderful lunch, but this panini is hard to beat… we will be eating this every other week for the rest of our lives if I have anything to say about it! Really, it’s that yummy…
If you read the word “panini” and were about to gloss over this recipe because you don’t have a panini maker… READ ON!
Not only is this recipe too delicious to pass up but you can always make a grilled sandwich in a skillet. No panini-maker required! If you have one already… WONDERFUL! It’s time to pull it out!
