I haven’t made a DIY post in a while, and seeing as I cooked Quesadillas for the first time yesterday (they were delicious and I had leftover meat), I decided to cook them again for lunch. I really enjoyed them and thought they were easy to make, so I thought I’d share them with you.

The heat I used to cook everything in the recipe was Gas Mark 2 (300°F/150°C)

YOU WILL NEED:

1. COOK THE MINCE

My mince was already cooked because I cooked it last night, but all I did was brown it in a pan with a tiny bit of olive oil, add the spice mix that came with the tortillas, added 100ml of water and left it to simmer on a low heat for 10 minutes.

2. MELT SOME BUTTER IN THE PAN

IMG_2421

Put a small piece of butter in the middle of the pan and spread around evenly.

3. PLACE THE TORTILLA IN THE PAN

IMG_2422

Place the tortilla flat in the pan, making sure you cover it in the butter.

4. ADD YOUR MINCE

IMG_2423

Make sure not to use too much mince, or the tortilla won’t close.

5. ADD SALSA AND CHEESE (filling is optional)

IMG_2425

It’s completely your choice what fillings you use. Again, don’t use too much filling, or the tortilla won’t close.

6. FOLD

IMG_2426

Fold the tortilla over and press it down around the edges.

7. LET IT COOK FOR 3 MINUTES

Wait until the bottom has turned golden brown.

8. FLIP

Carefully flip the tortilla and repeat step 7.

9. ENJOY!

I served mine with salad.

Two of my favourite youtubers, Kalel and Anthony, have recently started a series of “Taste Tests” where they taste different food that has been recommended to them. As I try a lot of different foods, I thought that it would be a good idea to let you know what kind of foods I try and what I thought of them!

1. NAKED GREEN MACHINE

IMG_2219

Flavour(s): Apple, Pineapple and Kiwi

Smell: I quite like the smell of this juice, but there’s something about it that I’m not sure of. The best way I could describe the taste is with the word “green”. You can smell the apple quite vividly too.

Texture: It’s quite thick, but I really like the texture. It’s not quite as thick as a smoothie, but it’s still really smooth.

Taste: I quite like the taste, but, like the smell, there’s something to it that I don’t really like. You can taste the herbs quite strongly a few minutes after drinking it, and I don’t really like that.

Rating: 6/10

2. LIPTON ICE TEA

IMG_2266

Flavour(s): Peach

Smell: It smells really fruity and very much like peach.

Texture: It’s very thin, and has as texture similar to water.

Taste: It has a quite weak taste, and tastes quite similar to peach flavoured water with very slight hints of tea flavour.

Rating: 8/10

3. TESCO WAKE UP SMOOTHIE

IMG_2264

Flavour(s): Apple, Kiwi and Strawberry

Smell: You can really smell the apple and the strawberry.

Texture: This smoothie was a lot thicker than the other’s I tried, but I still like the texture.

Taste: The taste of green apple is really strong and it makes the smoothie quite bitter, so I couldn’t finish this one.

Rating: 5/10

4. NAKED BLUE MACHINE

IMG_2262

Flavour(s): Blueberry

Smell: I love the smell of this drink! It smells exactly like blueberries, and even has some medicinal notes.

Texture: I really like the texture. It’s quite thick, but still thin enough to pass as a juice.

Taste: I love the taste just as much as I love everything else about it! It tastes exactly like it smells, and I really really love it!

Rating: 9/10

5. TESCO SUPER FRUITER

IMG_2265

Flavour(s): Blueberry, Red Grape, Raspberry, Plum, Apple and Cranberry

Smell: It smells very strongly of the berries, and I quite like this smell.

Texture: It has a similar thickness to the Wake Up Smoothie, so quite thick.

Taste: I quite like the taste, because it tastes quite a lot like raspberries, but, like the Wake Up Smoothie, it’s very tart and it make my stomach hurt a little bit

Also, RIP to Glee Actor Cory Monteith, my thoughts are with Lea and his family.

I absolutely love MaxFactor nail polish because it has a really good consistency, and it lasts for a long time. I’ve become obsessed with Lush over the past month, and the Miranda soap is the first soap I’ve bought from them, and I love it a lot! It cleans your skin really well and smells really good!
