Like It or Not

October 20, 2015

Well, I’m ” falling” into it without a fight. Fall that is. It’s been so much like Summer I had forgotten all about the change in seasons until today. Like someone flipping a switch the sky has grayed, the breeze has cooled and leaves have gone all red and golden. There is simplequietmodern Autumn inspiration around every turn.

In Season

September 27, 2015

Three simple ingredients and a hot dry skillet will have you cranking out these quesadillas in just a few minutes. A simplequietmodern spin on the traditional, these start with homemade quality tortillas from my local latin market, a Wisconsin Buttermilk Blue Cheese from Whole Foods and crisp thin slices of SweeTango apple. A perfect combination of warm, cheesy, toasty and cool, crisp and sweet will have you enjoying these as a snack, for lunch or as an appetizer from these earliest Autumn days all the way through to Thanksgiving .

Preheat a heavy skillet over medium heat. Place tortilla in skillet, top with blue cheese and cover until cheese is melted and underside of tortilla is browned and crisp. Remove from pan, top with thinly sliced apple and fold in half. Done.
