Grilled Bacon and Brie

Grilled Bacon and Brie

I told you I went on a grilled cheese bender.  And why not?  There’s nothing better than a grilled cheese sandwich in my book.  The ultimate comfort food.  The other day I had a wheel of brie sitting in my fridge and I decided to make grilled bacon and brie.  Mind you, I had never

Ham and Egg Salad Sandwich

So once a year I serve ham for dinner.  And then I have leftover ham.  Usually for days and I usually never know what to make with it.  And that once a  year is usually on Easter.  And, coincidentally, I also have a bunch of hard boiled eggs on hand.  So this year, I decided

Grilled Caprese Sandwich

I went on a bit of a grilled cheese bender a little while ago.  All I could think about was grilled cheese and making another one.  I’ve been a huge fan of grilled cheese for most of my life.  And then they came out with that study about people who love grilled cheese.  KB knows

Creamy Pea Salad

Years ago, when KB and I first started dating, we had gone to a restaurant in San Francisco.  It’s been so long, I don’t even remember the restaurant.  But what I do remember is the pea salad.  It was so creamy and so bright with flavor that KB asked me to re-create it.  And I’ve

Honey Mustard Chicken with Mushrooms and Spinach

So here’s another random.  My children love it when I make honey-mustard chicken.  Well, let me re-phrase that.  TAB loves it when I make honey-mustard chicken.  I think it’s a honey thing.   She can usually put away an entire piece of it and half of another. Anyways, I’ve recently decided that if I’m going

Yogurt Cheese and Red Beet Caprese Stacks

Red beets are an acquired taste.  Believe me I know.  I come from a long line of red-beet haters…ok, maybe just my momma.  She hates red beets.  I kind of like them, 1) because they have a pretty color and b) because they taste very sweet and earthy when you roast them with a little

Chili Mac

I think it’s finally spring!  The sun is shining, the birds are chirping, it’s not raining or snowing or cold!  I love spring.  It’s one of my two favorite seasons in New England.  Spring and Fall.  I really hate the summers and the winters and it seems like those are the two seasons that drag

Curried Chicken Salad Sandwich

Chicken salad is somewhat of a luxury for me.  I say that mostly because it’s not often that I have cooked chicken that’s leftover/needing to be used. Sometimes I’ll buy a rotisserie chicken just so I’ll have some chicken on hand to make chicken salad.  Because let’s face it, how often do you actually plan

Sriracha Honey Glazed Chicken

Sometimes I get stuck in a chicken rut.  It’s my go-to protein because KB and I both like it and it’s pretty healthy.  I always buy boneless, skinless chicken breasts and thighs.  I think it’s because KB has a thing about chicken with bones.  Of course I can buy the chicken with bones, and cook
