100th Post!

1 Sep

This blog was created in December 2010. The idea was to explore different cooking recipes, the ups and down living with my husband and how life changes as you head into the next stages in your life. Almost two years later I have hit my 100th post and almost 8,000 views. It’s crazy to think that anyone would want to read what I have to say. I greatly appreciate all the support, comments and feedback I have received thus far. Thank you.

It is fun to look back and reread old posts! Here are my top five posts!

1)A Wordless Wednesday dedicated to a piece of art my mother created for my husband for Christmas.

2) I am always looking for new recipes. There is a tab at the top of the blog  “Share your Recipes” . where I am  looking for you to share a good family recipe or one that you love to cook!

3)The third most popular post goes to a shout out to the month of May – National Food Month. I reached out to people who have blogged about the foods that are honored in the month of May. Stop by and see all the different recipes! Strawberries, Salsa, Asparagus… If you have a blog post please feel free to add in the comments!

4)I hate to even mention this post that I shared about a little problem we had with White kitchen mites. After several attempts with bug killer, orkin man, and lots of scrubbing these nasty little things finally went away on their own! Click the picture to read the full story!

National Grilled Cheese Month!

18 Apr

I can’t believe the month is half over and I am just finding out about this! I must do my research. How long has April been NGCM?

When I say that I am obsessed with grilled cheese sandwiches I am not lying. It has caused more than one argument between me and my husband. When we are out to eat and I don’t find anything interesting on a menu – Grilled cheese it is. “Try something new!” he always says.. Why risk something new and not like it when I can order a wonderful Grilled Cheese and it is a guarantee win?

I often get a little wild and like to add tomato and some ham. With much excitement finding out today was NGCM, I googled grilled cheese and picked my favorites!

A few years back Oprah picked Cafe Muse, restaurant right down the street from me, for making one of the best Grilled Cheese! I have had it and I have to agree. I may even stop in this week just to honor this wonder month long holiday!

Ingredients:

  • 1 slice Havarti cheese
  • 1 slice mozzarella cheese
  • 1 slice Danish fontina cheese
  • 1/2 Tbsp. butter , softened (for best results, use high-quality butter)
  • Honey from a squeeze bear bottle
  • 1 tsp. fresh basil , chopped
  • 2 slices tomato
  • 2 slices bread (organic multigrain bread works best)
  • Sauté pan large enough for 2 slices of bread
If you can throw together a killer grilled cheese please share your recipe!
