Gourmet Creamy Sweet Corn Soup

I left the boys early last night for a blog event. As always, I prepare something extra special for supper. Then I forgot Hubby’s friend is also dropping by to test the new midi controller. Oh big boys and their toys! After thorough research and Read Full Review , they can’t wait to rock it out.

So with full make-up on, I scrambled to pop some lamb ribs in the oven. Hubby seeing I prepared a large batch of his favorite sweet corn soup, said to forego the lamb and that the soup  seems good enough for them. In any case, they can order takeaway also. This morning, Hubby related our guest really enjoyed the soup and asked for the recipe, adding it was the best sweet corn soup!

Of course I am always happy to share! Hubby will only have tomato-based soup until he tried this. Don’t be fooled by the gourmet title because everything you need to make this comfort food yummy is found on your vegetable bin. However, when blended with  a dash of milk, it tastes luxury! Thanks again to DinnerTime Dubai for this simple, nourishing recipe.

Easy Homemade Pepperoni Quesadillas

This is one of my to go fridge/cupboard clean up recipe. The first time I made it, Hubby quickly declared he likes them better than pizza yay! Last night, when a very good friend dropped by unannounced to hand over souvenirs from recent travel, she asked for the quesadillas recipe I used. In exchange for a magnetic therapy bracelet I not only shared my recipe but also I also made a batch for us to share.

With avocado and tomato salsa and some green side salad, this was our easy, quick supper.

Preheat the oven. In a small pan sautee chopped pepperoni, onions, and fresh tomatoes. Add a little tomato paste. When vegetables turn slightly soft, add chunks of gouda cheese or mild cheddar cheese, a dash of Habanero chili sauce, then remove from heat. (You can add olives, campsicum, mushroom, whatever vegetables you have in your fridge)

Spread the pepperoni tomato mixture over half of tortilla flour, add grated mozarella, fold then pop in the oven to bake until slightly golden. Slice and serve warm.
