Wednesday:) What’s Cookin’ Miss Toni

It was pretty much a dreary gloomy grey day, but that’s ok. I had nowhere I needed to go, and nothing I had to do. Needless to say, I stayed under the warm covers till nearly noon. (Don’t Judge me! Just be jealous.)

I’ve been looking forward to using some of the handcrafted Vegan cheese that my California boy sent me for Christmas. I was in shock when I saw that he spend $66 just for shipping for about one pound of cheese, four small containers. But, he was so enthralled with the talented gentleman vegan cheese maker he met at a shop in LA, that he wanted to share with his mom.

He looks like an interesting guy, doesn’t he?

I decided to combine my Culinary loves, Mexican food (food, as I call it), flour tortillas, Matt’s wonderful vegan cheese, and my friends’ awesome salsa. Bernard’s Gourmet Foods Salsa, a little of my blackeyed pea salsa, baby spinach and tomato.

I even used a dry nonstick pan to make the vegan quesadillas. If I would have used butter, that would have taken away the whole vegan thing. (Matt would be proud.)

I cooked on a very low simmer so the cheese would melt.
Then, top with a little tomato y red pepper Bernard’s Salsa. YUM!

So, that’s what’s Cookin’. I enjoyed every bite. Thanks Matt. Thanks David and Michele Bernard. Thanks Youssef.
