Kale and Zucchini Quesadillas Recipe

Have you ever thrown together a bunch of different things just to use them up before they go bad, only to discover that what you've made is absolutely delicious? This is one of those recipes.

I had no intention of blogging about this (hence the bites that are missing from the below photos) but it is really, REALLY good! I was just trying to use up our leftover kale and zucchini and now have a new favorite recipe. Don't you just love when that happens? It's especially great since I never know what to do with kale anyway.




Hmmm...this is perhaps not the most beautiful food.


KALE AND ZUCCHINI QUESADILLAS
serves one

Ingredients
  • 1 tortilla
  • 2 large kale leaves, chopped with thick stems removed
  • 1/4 of a zucchini, thinly sliced
  • Cilantro, Green Onion, and Jalapenos (to taste, but if you skip this altogether, your quesadilla will be bland!)
  • 1 Tbsp Garlic Butter (you can add these ingredients separately if you must, but after that you should make yourself a go-to combination for next time. Sooooo yummy and useful!)
  • 2 Tbsp water
  • 1 Tbsp mayonnaise
  • Handful of Mozzarella Cheese
Directions
  1. In a small frying pan on medium heat, melt the garlic butter
  2. Add the water
  3. Add the kale and zucchini
  4. Stir and cover for 5 minutes
  5. Stir, then add the cilantro, green onion, and jalapeno
  6. Cover and let sit for 3 more minutes, or until zucchini and kale are tender
  7. Add mayonnaise
  8. Turn off heat, add mozzarella, and stir
  9. Put everything onto 1 side of a tortilla, then fold over
  10. Place your quesadilla in the toaster oven until browned. The stove top, George Foreman Grill, or oven are all fine alternatives if you don't have a toaster oven

 I'm going to go make another right now!

A Blogger's Before & After Guide to Chemical Peels

A Handy "Before & After" Guide to Chemical Peels - 6/25/17 Update
Since writing my chemical peel blog review back in 2013, I've had quite a few Jessner peels (my favorite) and TCA peels. However, I've saved a ton of money over the past 6 months by doing my own chemical peels at home. At my last professional peel, I made a note of the product being used and did some research when I got home. I was able to buy the exact same one, Dermalure Jessner Solution Acid Peel 14%, from Amazon for less than the cost of a single peel. I also use Dermalure's AHA/BHA Acne Cleanser. (Apply this before the Jessner.) It's self-neutralizing, despite what the Amazon listing says, and couldn't be simpler. That said...
I'm not sure I'd recommend this to a chemical peel newbie, as you're already nervous enough the first time without the added worry of doing it yourself, but it's so convenient (and cost effective!) once you're comfortable with the chemica…

Dream Home Dreaming

*Update*
We've finally broken ground on our mountain dream home! Can you believe it? Even more surprising, we actually managed to work a good chunk of this list into our actual design.

Original post:

Sexy Nerd wants to move up building our dream home to yesterday. I still don't know what I want though! Yes, it's difficult to decide on things like paint colors, flooring, and appliances. My problem is a bit worse.

Should we build one of those adorable 500 square feet mini houses? A (budget-friendly) mansion? A charming stone cottage?

Ultra-modern??

The internet makes it easy to find great design ideas for building our dream house. The downside is that all my favorite photos combine to make an overpriced, mismatched conglomeration.

According to my Pinterest account, my dream house has:

...a dramatic front entrance...

6/25/17 Update: Our entrance is dramatic - and bright, sunshine yellow!
 ...a charming brick fireplace...
