One of the things I’m trying to do this year is to go back into my archive of recipes here on the blog and update photos for them. I love looking back at old photos and reading my words from years ago, seeing how things have changed in almost 10 years. 10 years!!
When I first posted this recipe for Chicken Pesto Quesadillas I was a young stay-at-home mom to a 3 year old and 1 year old. Those two are now 13 and 10 years old and we have a little 4 year old in the mix! My, has time gone by. I originally posted this recipe during the summer and in those days I am sure I had plenty of fresh basil growing on my patio and I was picking up tons of bell peppers from the produce store weekly. Making fresh roasted red peppers is really easy to do and something I love to make as often as I can. Although homemade roasted red peppers are fairly easy to make, I don’t really have as much time these days to make them so I rely on some convenience items like jarred roasted red peppers AND jarred pesto (in case you missed it I just posted this roundup for healthy recipes using pesto). I’m pretty picky about both but I found these peppers recently at Trader Joe’s and love them.
