I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Baked Pita Quesadilla

When you don't have tortillas in the house but still crave quesadilla...

3 medium pitas, cut in quarters but not split
1  lb ground beef
small onion, diced
some shredded carrot
1 1/2 cups salsa
2 cups shredded cheese
1/2 cup kidney beans 

Break up and brown the ground beef and onion in a large skillet.

Remove any excess fat. Remove from heat and add 1 cup cheese, 1/2 cup salsa, shredded carrot and beans.
Spread 1/2 cup salsa on the bottom of a 8 X 8" baking dish and divide the meat evenly between the quartered pitas. I cut them in quarters before assembly which made assembly a little slower than if the pitas were whole. But pre-quartering did make for nice neat serving pieces.

Top with remaining salsa and cheese

Bake, covered, at 375 F for 20 minutes. Then uncover and bake an additional 10 minutes.

Serves 3-4
