Corned Beef & Swiss Cheese Reuben Quesadillas with Creamy 1000 Islands Dipping Sauce

This riff recipe of Corned Beef & Swiss Cheese Reuben Quesadillas with 1000 Islands Dipping sauce came about when I had planned on making traditional Reuben sandwiches with rye bread for dinner one night, but realized that I’d forgotten to purchase rye bread at the store. Uh oh! Luckily for me, I had a full package of flour tortillas that were calling my name and begging for their chance to be utilized in something other than a Tex-Mex recipe. Enter this recipe for Corned Beef & Swiss Cheese Reuben Quesadillas with Creamy 1000 Islands Dipping Sauce.

Crunchy Crescent Ham & Havarti Appetizers

This appetizer was born out of necessity because I wanted to utilize two tubes of un-perforated crescent roll dough that I’d had in the fridge for what seemed to be at least a month. I don’t recall why I’d purchased the crescent dough, but obviously my plans changed somewhere along the line, and that’s how these Crunchy Crescent Ham & Havarti Appetizers were born.

Antioxidant Rich Blood Orange and Blueberry Salad

I have a confession to make; I’d never even tried a blood orange before making this Blood Orange and Blueberry Salad. Oh sure I’d seen them in the stores often enough, and on other people’s blogs, but since I’m not that fond of eating citrus fruits on their own, I’ve never added them to my shopping cart. Until now!

Uncommonly Good Homemade Avocado Shrimp Sushi Rolls

Not long ago I went out to dinner with some girlfriends, and we ate avocado rolls as our appetizer. They were absolutely delicious, but they also looked far too delicate and intricate for anything I could (or would) possibly attempt making in my own kitchen. Not so, and I’m here to show you how.
