Veggie Egg Muffins

Great for breakfast meetings, if you have a way to heat them.

turkey quesadillas

Turkey Quesadillas

Our office has a potluck lunch every year on May 5 -- the Mexican day of the dead. We each bring in a Mexican dish. Most people just bring guacamole, salsa, or arroz con pollo (chicken with rice). I bring these quesadillas, and now they are a tradition everyone look forward to. They're actually very easy to make (and to heat in the break-room microwave), and they're healthy without seeming like a "health food."
