popper grilled cheese

Dec 10, 2011 by

i missed out on a lot of awesome food growing up, due to my excessive pickyness.  food was too spicy, too meaty, too sour, yadda yadda yadda.  i think i could have lived on mac and cheese, chicken patties from the freezer and ice cream.  i’m so glad that i’ve expanded my food horizons so i can try new things!  this is another pinterest find, i believe and it will definitely be making an appearance on our weekly menu sometime soon.  it goes well with salad or a bowl of brothy soup. this dish combines my favorite food, cheese, with jalapeño poppers.  it all goes together with tasty fashion in a grilled sandwich.  once the peppers have been roasted, you can throw it all together pretty easily on a week night.  make sure to...

breakfast quiche

Jan 30, 2011 by

french toast

Oct 10, 2010 by

french toast is a very simple breakfast dish to make.  i’ve been making it for a very long time and was kind of surprised to find that i hadn’t blogged about it yet!
