  1. Great pictures… Never tried Qesadilla. your repice is just asking me to give a try.. Lovely..

  2. Very very nice and I am loving it all the way. The bread and the filling inside are just gorgeous as your pics says it all. I seldom make the quesadillas bc there’s only two of us at home so just get some from the bakery and being contented with that way.
