Cauliflower Puree & Cabot Grilled Cheese

Cauliflower Puree & Cabot Grilled Cheese

Over the past week, I had been planning to make a brand new grilled cheese featuring homemade cauliflower puree. However, there was always something that stopped me. Not enough time, too many errands, etc. It all changed on Saturday when us here in Cleveland were […]

Hummus & Red Pepper Havarti Grilled Cheese

Hummus & Red Pepper Havarti Grilled Cheese

My previous grilled cheese, Root Vegetable Fritter Grilled Cheese, definitely pushed the envelope of what a grilled cheese sandwich can and should be. (Some have even said it isn’t a grilled cheese.) For this week’s grilled cheese, I wanted to come back down to Earth […]

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 and see what they had to offer. After spending a few minutes searching (and tasting), I found the cheese that I wanted and with the help of the Sous Chef, had an idea as to what grilled cheese I would be creating. (more…)

Tillamook White Cheddar Grilled Cheese

Tillamook White Cheddar Grilled Cheese

Recently, a new grocery store decided to open in my town with big fan fare. [Update 3/2/14: It has since closed. Very sad.] I knew very little about this particular grocery store so when I was off on opening day, I decided to check it […]

Kerrygold’s Ivernia Cheese

Kerrygold’s Ivernia Cheese

With a few days off from work and not much to do, I recently headed to Whole Foods hoping to discover some great cheese in the remnant basket. Unfortunately, I had no luck. There were a few small pieces of a truffle cheese but I […]

Have you ever had ‘Vintage Van Gogh’ or ‘Black Pepper Bellavitano’ cheese?

Have you ever had ‘Vintage Van Gogh’ or ‘Black Pepper Bellavitano’ cheese?

Recently, I traveled to Whole Foods to see if they had any type of potato bread (mix, fresh, not fresh) to turn this awesome Daily Spud recipe into a grilled cheese. Instead I stumbled on Whole Foods’ “cheese remnant” section (which I had thought they discontinued) where I found two cheeses I had never heard of: ‘Vintage Van Gogh’ and ‘Black Pepper Bellavitano.’ From there, I decided to make two simple, quick grilled cheese sandwiches featuring these cheeses and the onion rye bread I had sitting at home. Such a great idea. Since everyone is probably most intrigued by the Vintage Van Gogh, I will start with the Satori Black Pepper Bellavitano.

Yes, it has been awhile. Yes, life has gotten in the way. Yes, I am well on my way to a management role at my newly remodeled restaurant job. Yes, I now have a career and not a job. Go me! However, you are probably […]

Three Year Aged Gouda Grilled Cheese

Three Year Aged Gouda Grilled Cheese

I was not planning on cooking a grilled cheese this week as I have a big quiz on Wednesday and needed to study. However, on Saturday at Whole Foods, I noticed that they had a three year aged Gouda on sale for $9.99 lb, originally […]

Sweet Potatoes Grilled Cheese

Sweet Potatoes Grilled Cheese

While walking around Whole Foods with the sous chef, I was trying to think of an idea for tonight’s grilled cheese. I had thought broccoli but quickly dismissed that. I thought potatoes, but was unsure of my choices other than potato chips. That is when the sous chef suggested mashed potatoes on a grilled cheese, which I thought was a great idea. Maybe we could add some scallions or onions. That idea was quickly overruled when we saw, at the prepared foods department, that they had orange basil sweet potatoes on sale for $1/lb (originally $5+/lb). I tried it and was intrigued. We had not yet used sweet potatoes on a grilled cheese so we went with it. (more…)

Martha Stewart’s ‘Grown-Up Grilled Cheese Sandwiches’

Martha Stewart’s ‘Grown-Up Grilled Cheese Sandwiches’

Who would have guessed Martha Stewart would know how to cook an awesome grilled cheese sandwich let alone multiple yummy grilled cheese sandwiches? Definitely not me. Thanks to padgett hoke, I stumbled on Ms. Stewart’s recipes (and awesome photos), both vegetarian and carnivorous. With me […]
