A cheesy apple a day keeps the doctor away! My son is in one of those stages where all he wants for lunch is quesadillas. I had to get creative. I started to experiment with different fruits, vegetables, proteins and nuts and I found this recipe to be the winner. I realized that the crunch of this quesadilla coming from the apples was what was making my son devour the whole thing. Filled with tender, baby kale, and roasted turkey, this quick lunch made it complete and me feel great he was getting a good dose of vitamins his growing 4 year-old body-needs. Make sure you use a very crunchy apple and very tender greens, the flavors will blend very well with the cheese melt and the already seasoned turkey breast.

A new, delicious way to make your chicken tonight!At home we eat lots of chicken. So I try to look for different ways to make it. I found out about these chicken rolls a little bit ago and it didn't seem hard so I gave it a try with my own ingredient combination and a sauce. The result is very nice and what I like the most is that it is different! I usually buy the frozen chicken breast cutlets, they will help in cooking these rolls so not to have a big chicken breast to work with. It is best if you thaw them because they will absorb the flavors better, and you can let it sit with seasonings before cooking. Kids might not be into the sun dried tomatoes easily, but I keep offering because otherwise how are we going to teach them try new flavors? They have slowly agreed to try new foods and they have liked some of them. The cilantro sauce will help combine the flavors together in this dish!

Miso-Tofu Ranch DipWhen Wired asked us to help with their food issue, we didn't have to think twice. After all, they might have had the last word on all things tech, but we have a test kitchen. Then we heard they were exploring umami, the savory "fifth taste" experienced when chewing a perfectly seared steak or nibbling a hunk of Parmesan, and we got even more excited. This was a chance to go deep on one of our favorite subjects. So we reached out to David Chang's Momofuku Culinary Lab, where Dan Felder, head of R&D, spends his days coaxing the flavor from a range of ingredients.
"Creating umami from scratch is something we take very seriously," says Felder. "We're constantly thinking about new ways to achieve it." And that's exactly what he did. Felder created three recipes-all of them umami bombs-one for BA, the others for our friends at Wired. And that was just the beginning. We talked to Felder and Momofuku Ssam Bar chef de cuisine Matthew Rudofker about how the lab and theRead More »from 5 Easy Umami Boosters to Make Your Food Even Better

The key to making this dish is to have all the ingredients prepared before you begin sautéing the onions.
Let's take a look into your fridge, shall we? You've got eggs, some onions, leftover herbs and cheeses from your Sunday dinner. Yes, that will make a dinner just fine-no need to shop for more. On busy week nights, a frittata is your saving grace. Not only is it the ultimate fridge-cleaner recipe (and boy, do we love those), it's filling, relatively healthy, and feeds a crowd, too. This one uses some super-basic ingredients, but you can throw in tomatoes and basil, leeks and Cheddar, goat cheese and spinach-the possibilities are endless. So go ahead, take a deep dive into your fridge. You'll probably pull out the fixin's for dinner.

It's always more fun to DIY. Every week at Food52, we spare you a trip to the grocery store and show you how to make small batches of great foods at home.
Today: Food52's Managing Editor Brette Warshaw gives us a greener, brighter, and even-more-attractive Green Goddess.
How could you not want to eat something called Green Goddess?
Green Goddess, like Super Fudge Chunk ice cream or a Tres Leches doughnut, is one of those things that you can't not, by terms of name alone, be attracted to. It's the kind of thing that when your friends order "a side of green goddess" with their fries at your local diner -- an at least once-a-week occurrance during my high school days -- you can't help but purring to the waitress, "Oooooh yeah, me too."
But unlike Super Fudge Chunk or that Tres Leches doughnut, the typical Green Goddess doesn't leave you in a state of utter relaxation, of joy, of glazed-eyed bliss. Instead,Read More »from A Brighter, Fresher Green Goddess Dressing

Wedding Cake of the Day: Fish CakeWedding cakes are an art form - an edible art form for that matter. And for many brides, the wedding cake is just as important as the dress and bouquet on their big day. A wedding cake is not something that is simply eaten and forgotten; it makes a statement with how good it looks, how great it tastes, and it reflects the bride and groom as a couple.Read More »from The Catch of a Lifetime: A Beautiful Fish-Themed Wedding Cake
We all know that there are plenty of fish in the sea, but when you are searching for your soul mate, sometimes you aren't sure which bait to use.

It definitely worked for this couple, as they called The Designer Cake Company to create this interesting beauty for their wedding day.

Metro UK reports that two teenagers, Cameron Ford and Adam Welland, decided to class up their local Mickey D's by bringing in a tablecloth, fake candles, wine glasses, and cutlery, only to be told to leave. Metro reports that the teenagers were warned "leave or your [sic] banned," when the two were only trying to bring a little class to the fast-food joint. "It was just the standard knives and forks. Clearly we were planning to take over the whole of McDonald's, so they had to stop that," Welland tweeted.
