Fiesta Chicken Quesadillas

Looking for a great dinner recipe? Check out these Fiesta Chicken Quesadillas from www.drugstoredivas.net.I love Mexican food. It’s my favorite type of restaurant to go to, and it’s my favorite food to cook at home too. When we go out to eat, I love authentic Mexican food that I can’t replicate at home. At home, I can get the flavors pretty good, but it still has more like an American-Mexican feel to it. I’m okay with that, especially when I make something like these Fiesta Chicken Quesadillas.

I made them for dinner recently and raved about them all through dinner. Which I guess is pretty egotistical but sometimes, when you nail it, you nail it.

How To Keep Your Laundry Room From Smelling Like A Locker Room

How To Keep Your Laundry Room From Smelling Like A Locker Room

This post is sponsored.

How To Keep Your Laundry Room From Smelling Like A Locker RoomI love having a laundry room in our house. When we lived in the apartment, we actually didn’t have a washer and dryer. So our laundry room was basically just a place for me to store dirty laundry.

And, when we lived at the apartment, doing laundry was such a pain. We had to pack it in baskets, cart it and our laundry supplies to the laundry room in the complex, and then wait. It was not really the best way to spend a couple hours of free time. Plus, I have a lot of clothes, so I can go a long time without doing laundry. I’m probably more proud about that than I should be.

If you’re similar, you run the risk of your laundry room smelling like a locker room. Which is gross. Really gross … especially if you have company over. Imagine if your company is looking for a bathroom, opens your laundry room door by accident, and gets a whiff of gym socks. Gross.

Don’t worry. Follow our tips and your laundry room will smell great.

Do Your Laundry.
This is a no brainer. If you don’t want your laundry room to smell like laundry, don’t leave laundry sitting. The sooner you can do it, the less time smells have to get into your clothes.

Air It Out.
After you do your laundry, keep the washer door ajar. Any leftover water will dry quicker, reducing your risk of mold. And mold smells. A lot. Also, if you have a window in your laundry room, open that up and air out the room from time to time.

Use The Right Detergent.
High-efficiency washers need high-efficiency detergents. Because of all the magic that makes them HE, they can’t really “process” normal detergent properly. So residue gets left behind. Eventually, that adds up and turns into gross smells. So even if you are doing your laundry in a timely manner, the room will still smell.

Plug In An Air Freshener.
A small air freshener can fill the whole room and give a sweet kick to your nose every time you open the door.

What are your tips to keep your home smelling fresh?

I’ll be honest: I never liked fresh pasta. It just always tasted so off to me, which is a hard thing to describe, but that’s the truth. Pete is a huge fan of fresh pasta, so when my grandma got him a pasta maker last Christmas, I let out a little sigh. It meant unfavorable fresh pasta would be in our home.

And then Pete made it.

It was amazing.

All these high-end restaurants making fresh pasta not to my taste, but Pete’s recipe is so good. He makes it often, and I just love it. He uses the same dough recipe for spaghetti, lasagna noodles, and ravioli, too — and it’s amazing every time. Pete used it over the weekend to make ravioli stuffed with my favorite kale pesto. What a delicious dinner!

We currently have the new Softsoap Hand Wash Plus Lotion, in the aloe water & lime variant, in our kitchen. It’s perfect there. When you’re cooking, you are generally washing your hands a lot, and that really can make your hands dry. So having a soap that adds some lotion to soothe is great.

And this time of year, when winter is making your hands so dry, you definitely want to put lotion on them. This is a great way to do that without the greasiness that lotion can leave.

When your hands are clean, wrap your dough in plastic wrap and let it rest about 20 minutes.

Cut a chunk of dough and roll it through your pasta maker. Roll it until you reach your desired thickness, then cut the sheet in half.

Put a few dollops of kale pesto on one half of the dough. Add a dollop of ricotta, then, cover that with the second piece of dough. Using a ravioli cutter (which is amazing because it pinches it closed for you) cut the ravioli.
