Tasty Cookbook Tuesday: Crazy Sexy Diet by Kris Carr

Posted March 8, 2011 by Felicia S in Uncategorized / 1 Comment


I *heart* cookbooks and cooking.  I always have!  It is something that soothes the soul and really releases the stress from the day.  Plus, it is the only place I can experiment and not feel bad about throwing it out if it goes wrong!  Since I read a bunch of cookbooks and occasionally review them on here —I thought I would put a twist on Teaser Tuesdays and do them cookbook style! 

Crazy Sexy Diet is not just a cookbook but it does have some recipes in it that I am dying to try.  There is one in particular that just sounds very odd but I secretly wonder if it is FAB! I am not vegan or a vegetarian so this particular recipe jumped out at me because I never thought of using olives in a Quesadilla.  Sometimes the simplest recipes are the ones that grab my attention!

Olive Quesadillas
Contributed by Pam Brown, Garden Cafe (http://www.gardencafewoodstock.com)
(Serves 1-2)

1 large flour tortilla
4 ounces Follow Your Heart Vegan Cheese or Daiya Cheese
2 ounces caramelized onions
2 ounces roasted red peppers
8 kalamata olives, halved

Spread cheese on one half of the tortilla.  Add the onions, peppers, and olives evenly.  Fold the toritlla over and grill until it’s golden and crispy.

So what is a recipe that has jumped out at you?

    I find vegan cheese disgusting. But olives and cheese are delicious–I like olives in grilled cheese sandwiches.It's a good think I love cookbooks, I have a cookthrough blog.
