Happy #nationalgrilledcheeseday To celebrate I made an extra melty sandwich with salty chopped olives and marinated artichokes. And I made my own panini press with the weight of a skillet and some cans of tuna (pro tip) I used fontina, a perfect cheese for an extra melty sandwich. This one was rubbed with a mix of Italian herbs, which went perfectly with the olives and artichoke for my Mediterranean inspired grilled cheese . I learned much more about the European style cheeses @yellowdoorcreamery is making when I visited them in Wisconsin. They’ve partnered with the master cheese makers from the National Dairy School ENIL (um..can I go there?) in Mamirolle France (seriously, can I go there?) to introduce centuries-old cheese making techniques here in the US. It was awesome to see their process from curd to aging room for their new Alpine cheeses that will be introduced later this year.

I've had rosewater in lots of cakes and sweets (and use it on my face--it's the best moisturizer) but I've never actually used it myself. And since I still have enough cookies around to build a gingerbread house and move in, I definitely didn't want to make anything sweet.

I would put blue cheese on everything I make if that was socially and dietary acceptable. But in this case it is. These puff pastry tarts with pear or apple, mustard and Stilton are perfect for a holiday starter.

This could truly not be simpler. Couscous falls under the category I call "no-cook" because the only effort you need to make is to boil water, get a bowl out, and cover it all with a tea towel. This one, with sweet dried figs, salty mixed olives and the crunch of almonds is perfect for the holidays or to make a batch of and have through out the week!

Tap ⬆️ and save this crazy simple summer dessert recipe! galettes are some of my faves because they're easy and quick to make and this season is perfect for cherries! INGREDIENTS 1 cup flour 1/4 cup cornmeal 1/2 cup (1 stick) cold butter 3 tablespoons ice cold water 2 cups cherries, halved and pitted 2 teaspoons sugar 3 teaspoons flour 1 egg, beaten Demerara sugar for sprinkling THE HOW-TOS 1) to make the dough, mix the flour, cornmeal, a pinch of salt, and the butter together until its a coarse sand texture. Add the cold water and bring together into a rough ball of dough. Tightly wrap with cling film and pop in the fridge to chill. 2) Mix the cherries in a medium bowl with the sugar and cornflour. 3) Roll the dough out until it's about 3mm thick. Pour the cherries into the center of the dough and fold the edges up and over the cherries. Brush with the beaten egg, sprinkle with Demerara sugar and pop in a 350F for 45 mins or until its lightly golden brown.

I'm going to say something controversial: as a self proclaimed sprinkle connoisseur, and someone who will never say no to them, was disappointed by Van Leeuwen's--so hard and crunchy it hurt to eat them. For $6 it was an eh ice cream experience. But also, #nationalicecreamday so obvi I ate it all anyway
