Sweet Dumpling Squash Grilled Cheese

Sweet Dumpling Squash Grilled Cheese

There is no doubt in my mind that Cabot knows how to promote their cheeses. Not only do they send new, free cheese on a regular basis, which is awesome in of itself, they also send little extras that make their package even more amazing.…

Tintern Cheddar & Mushroom Mayo Grilled Cheese

Tintern Cheddar & Mushroom Mayo Grilled Cheese

Yesterday, it was time to head to Earth Fare Solon and get my free ice cream sundae. And buy some cheese. I have looked through Earth Fare’s cheese department but only once bought cheese from there. It was time to truly search through their cheeses…

Fried Avocado & Fresh Mozzarella Grilled Cheese

Fried Avocado & Fresh Mozzarella Grilled Cheese

Last week, Whole Foods had a buy one get one free special on Fresh Mozzarella cheese. The minute I received the email, I knew I couldn’t resist, especially since I was off that day. I mean, who doesn’t love Fresh Mozzarella? It was the perfect beginning to a new grilled cheese sandwich. Sure, at that point I had no idea what else I would be adding to the sandwich but it was a start. I had the cheese…now I just needed the other ingredients. Such as fried avocado.

Balsamic Drizzled Mixed Greens Grilled Cheese

Balsamic Drizzled Mixed Greens Grilled Cheese

Finally, I have returned with a new grilledshane original creation. Sure, I flirted with a sandwich that highlighted an awesome local cheese, but it has been forever since I actually created a new grilledshane original. It was time. It was definitely time. I haven’t truly made…

Purple Potatoes Grilled Cheese

Purple Potatoes Grilled Cheese

I begin this entry with a riddle: Name a blue food that is not a blueberry, blue M&M or blue corn tortilla chip… …. Did I give you enough time? Need some more? Think of any? Yeah, didn’t think so. Blue foods are a rarity.…

Gruyere & Gorgonzola w/Hazelnut Butter Grilled Cheese

Gruyere & Gorgonzola w/Hazelnut Butter Grilled Cheese

When The Christian Science Monitor volunteered to send me a copy of Laura Werlin‘s new grilled cheese cookbook, grilled cheese please, in turn for a review, I asked where do I sign. Seemed like a no brainer to me.

The last time I wrote a book review was probably sometime in grade school for some book I probably never even read. I know I still owe one to my Sunday School teacher. (I’ll get on that right after I finish this review.) And now, here I am writing a cookbook review, a grilled cheese cookbook review for that matter. I would definitely say this is an improvement and that I am moving up in the world. I wonder what fun will happen next.

Prior to knowing I was going to write this review, I was planning on cooking a sandwich from Ms. Werlin’s first grilled cheese cookbook, Great Grilled Cheese. I briefly thumbed through, trying to find that perfect recipe. I stumbled on a cucumber grilled cheese that looked promising, but honestly, none of the recipes really excited me (as they did when I originally purchased the book). Sure, I have to discount some because of the whole meat+milk/Kosher thing, but although the vegetarian ones looked interesting, I couldn’t find the one. That all changed once I received grilled cheese please!. Continue reading Gruyere & Gorgonzola w/Hazelnut Butter Grilled Cheese

Cotswold Cheese & Blue Grilled Cheese

Cotswold Cheese & Blue Grilled Cheese

I had not truly thought about creating a grilled cheese sandwich for tonight’s dinner until I was driving with the sous chef to see Billy Elliot. I was not prepared with any great ideas or recipes to choose from. Not until I arrived at Whole…

Tapenade Grilled Cheese

Tapenade Grilled Cheese

Yes, there has been a slight delay in writing about this grilled cheese (and the one after, a crushed tortilla and avocado sandwich). I do apologize but I have been busy finishing up my last few days as a webmaster and diving right into the food industry. Yesterday was my last day with a company and routine I had known for 3+ years. Now, I am full-time employee of the food/restaurant business (aka Nordstrom) and I could not be more excited. I believe I am meant to be out of the office and in the restaurant, back OR front of the house. Right now Nordstrom, later the world (or just my own restaurant). But before I conquer the world, it is time to recreate Macheesmo’s Tapenade Grilled Cheese. Continue reading Tapenade Grilled Cheese

Asiago Grilled Cheese

Asiago Grilled Cheese

It was a busy Sunday consisting of working at Nordstrom and traveling to Best Buy to find a nice, new HDTV, so I did not have much time to prepare an elaborate grilled cheese. (I had hoped to create Macheesomo.com‘s Tapenade Grilled Cheese but that…
