We’re almost there…Super Bowl 50 is fast approaching! Today, next Sunday and then it’s February 7th and may THE game begin!!!

We do not have a team that we are rooting for but we are looking forward to the eats and the commercials! Sorry, football fans…we just aren’t but we will use the day as an excuse to celebrate along with all of you!

We’ve decided to dedicate this blog to folks like us who would just as soon spend Super Bowl Sunday in the kitchen keeping our guests happy. There is nothing better than warm finger food that just keeps on making your tummy smile…a quesadilla!

Normally we would have posted a few pictures of the finished products but it seems like Mother Nature had different ideas about us going to the grocery store to replenish our tortillas! This is our driveway and as you can see, we won’t be going anywhere! But, we thought we would share some of our favorite quesadilla recipes anyway.
