Rainy Day Quesadillas

The Chef: Colleen

The Menu: Fresh tortillas broiled with Daiya's new Pepperjack cheese, along with an organic green salad with Follow Your Heart's just-launched vegan Ranch dressing

The Goods: The (fantastic) aftermath of Expo West continues. Given today's stormy, rainy weather, our wonderful Associate Editor Jennifer Chef offered to bake up quesadillas for the staff so we could all stay in and keep warm. How could we say no? We're lovin' the new Pepperjack flavor, as it boasts a nice kick while being totally meltable in some of our favorite foods (quesadillas being one of them). And we couldn't be more happy with Follow Your Heart's new Ranch dressing—this is the real deal, people. We could pour this on everything, and maybe we just might. As soon as we finished up lunch, a delivery arrived: cupcake kits from Sticky Fingers! On top of winning Food Network's Cupcake Wars, dealing with the post-show press, they found time to send us a few of these adorable kits. It was a very good day—especially given how busy we are with the May+June issue, which goes to press on Monday. Packed with vegan weddings, a fascinating exposé on product recalls, an interview with HSUS' Wayne Pacelle, and so much more, get ready for another incredible edition of VegNews! In the meantime, have a fabulous weekend, and if you're heading to the Genesis Awards in Los Angeles, be sure to say hello to VN editors Elizabeth and Jenn!

Quesadillas are so simple... but always so, so delicious. Love the idea of using Daiya cheese. Thanks for my next lunch idea!
