Barbecue Chicken Sandwiches with Slaw

Mondays are very busy in my house. My son has back to back appointments where we don’t get home until after 7pm, and are starving!  I don’t want a microwave a meal, and don’t always batch cook the night before, so we need something quick and easy. This particular Monday I made barbecue chicken sandwiches…

Next Level Grilled Cheese

I’m literally calling this next level grilled cheese, because there’s no other way to describe probably the best grilled cheese I’ve ever eaten. I’m a huge grilled cheese fan, and love to play around with different breads, cheeses, meats, and veggies. There’s something about melted cheese that makes me smile. When I saw Ruth Reichl’s…

Prosciutto Mozzarella and Fig Panini

Not sure if I mentioned this in the past, but I use getpocket.com often. Meaning, I have over 1000 links saved in my account. My goal is to try to go through and trash the links I no longer need, or no longer exist. I came across this prosciutto mozzarella and fig panini recipe from tasting table…

Genoa Salami Panini

If you haven’t noticed by now, I have a deep love for cheese. In almost any form, but I have a definite soft spot for mac and cheese and grilled cheese, or any food that make cheese the star. The other night I made a genoa salami panini with manchego and pepperoncini. I always wondered…

Blackened Salmon Grilled Cheese

I have to start this post with an apology.  I didn’t anticipate taking pictures or posting this recipe for a blackened salmon grilled cheese, but this was one of those “happy accident” moments.  About a month ago Miles boycotted salmon because he found a bone twice in his fillet.  While this is valid, it severely…

Cornbread Brisket Grilled Cheese

I hope you will forgive me as I continue to go on about my love of grilled cheese sandwiches.  A while ago, I stumbled across a patty melt recipe made with cornbread and beef brisket.  My mouth watered every time I saw the recipe, but my only thought was “when am I ever going to…

Jalapeno Grilled Cheese with Bacon

Mmmm grilled cheese.  I will never tire of them.  So far there hasn’t been a grilled cheese I wouldn’t turn down.  Except maybe for a mushroom grilled cheese.  I just don’t like mushrooms enough.  I recently saw a pic of a grilled cheese with jalapeno poppers and bacon and immediately went to the market to…

BBQ Brisket Grilled Cheese

I. Love. Grilled. Cheese. So does my son. While my son prefers the classic grilled cheese and bacon, he also loves my crab cake grilled cheese.  His only requirement is that he makes the grilled cheese in our Panini maker.  It is a very simple and easy way to make grilled cheese and while I…

Crab Cake Grilled Cheese

My department had a baseball outing a couple of weeks ago.  It was a lot of fun. I was in the mood for ballpark food which for me meant nachos with lots of yellow cheese-like goodness.  When they made it in front of me, the women was squeezing cheese from a large silver pouch.  Sounds…

Grilled Gruyere with Black Forest Bacon

My son and I were trying to think of what to have for lunch.  I knew we had to go to Whole Foods to get our new favorite bacon, and we had rye bread at home, so I suggested a grilled cheese with black forest bacon.  I wanted something sharp like cheddar, but knew that…
