Let's Cook!

(Salsa not shown)
This quiche style pie is super easy to make and is really delicious.  The original recipe came from BettyCrocker.com but I added the chicken and changed a couple of ingredients.  You could omit the chicken and add ham or sausage if you wish. 

Impossibly Easy Quesadilla Pie (Julie's version)
1 can (4.5 ounces) Old El Paso chopped green chiles, well drained
2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese (8 ounces)
1 teaspoon chopped fresh cilantro (I added 2-3 teaspoons because I love cilantro)
3/4 cup Original Bisquick mix
1 1/2 cups milk
3 eggs
shredded or cut up chicken (2 cups or so)
Salsa, sour cream and cilantro for garnish
1.  Heat oven to 400 degrees F.
Grease 9-inch pie plate.  Sprinkle chilies, cheese, cilantro and chicken in pie plate. 
2.  Stir remaining ingredients until blended.  Pour into pie plate.
3.  Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes.  Serve with salsa, sour cream and cilantro if desired.

Re-decorating...French and Shabby Chic Style

Simply divine plates from Marshalls


My Mom, my daughter and I have been bitten by the decorating bug :) My Mom is re-decorating her Master Bedroom and Bath, My daughter is re-decorating her bedroom and I'm giving my Master Bedroom and Bath a mini make-over. We have had a lot of fun shopping for new items and I snapped some photos (on a recent shopping trip) that I think are fabulous.

Pretty floral mugs from Ross

Teapots from Ross.  I think they were only $10 each
I'm thinking about buying a couple of these extra-large Eiffel Tower mugs from Marshalls.  Better get there fast...things don't stay on the shelves long at Marshalls!
I bought one of these plates from Marshalls.  I'm using it with my Autumn decorations (will post photos of that later).
Pretty Shabby Chic style casserole dishes at Marshalls.  I bought a set of matching measuring cups (I need to take a photo of those!)
The matching colander/stainer....
Ooh la la bath accessories at Homegoods.  I almost bought these but ended up with a similar set from Hobby Lobby (will post that photo at a later date)
Both my Mom and I are considering this elegant green pillow for our Master Bedrooms
(from Homegoods).  Only $19.99.
Love this pillow from Homegoods
Can you believe the price on these chairs?  Only $19.99 each!
Similar chairs at Ballard Designs cost big $$$$$
I adore these cake pedestals at Homegoods
Fancy and elegant candelabra from Homegoods
These crown serving pieces (from Homegoods)

My Mom bought 2 of these mirrors for her Master Bath at Hobby Lobby.
They were half price that week, what a bargain at $40 each!!!
Chic lamps for my daughter's bedroom.  She was inspired by Audrey Hepburn for her latest bedroom make-over!
