i am hard at work on what i hope will be my next book. one of the recipes i plan to include is for the quesadilla cakes that i made a while back. in order to get my notes cleaned up and ready for the folks up north, i decided to make them this morning.
first thing i did was grab the camera and my nifty new macro lens. best investment i have made this year: digital photography classes. second best, that lens.
the original recipe is found here. when i made them, i used parmesan cheese because that is what the nice young lady working in a local mexican bakery told me they use. all research on the internet mentions a traditional choice of cotija with parmesan as a close substitute. this morning, i bought a package of crumbled cotija.
