Sorry about the lack of posting, oh two readers of mine. Between the theater critics’ conference and general busy-ness, all I’ve had time to cook lately is clean-out-the-fridge pasta and scrambled eggs. To tide you over, I’ll share the recipe of a cocktail John’s been making me lately, basically a high ball meets Shirley Temple.

Sadly, I discovered I was out of propane when I made this, so this became more of a makeshift George Foreman creation than I would have liked. Still, who doesn’t love quesadillas?
The flavors in this crock pot dish were very nice, but the chili was more watery than I would have liked. Cornstarch didn’t thicken quite enough – I think I used too much broth, but I wonder if there’s something else I could have done. Note: Many recipes I saw called for diced chiles – I would have totally added this if I had it on hand, as it would have lent a good kick.
Had a tomato or two to use up, so it was salsa time. I’m actually not convinced I’ve made salsa before. This one could have used more kick (no hot peppers on hand) and was a bit watery, but I love the fresh taste.
