How many ways can you make grilled cheese?

I heard somewhere about a restaurant that served JUST grilled cheese. I really have to track down that restaurant. I could gladly live on grilled cheese. My favorite to date is one that I made myself one night for dinner and I actually surprised myself. I started with just a plain slice of cheese... the kind that comes in the wrapper, buttered two slices of bread, slapped on the slice of cheese, and slapped the other slice of  buttered bread on top. I know, I know... I shouldn't have buttered the bread, but hey, it tastes better than way. Oh wait, I forgot that I tossed on a handful of dried onion flakes... yes a good couple of rounded tablespoons and then put the bread on top. To finish, I buttered the other side of the bread, plunked it onto the frying pan (cast iron) and then buttered the second side.  IT WAS AMAZING!  I don't generally butter every side of the bread, but every once in a while, I have to do it like Mom did...   I wonder what little tricks that particular restaurant has come up with?? One of these days, I am going to track it down!

Cursed Candy Apples?


I think that I mentioned that I have this thing for candy apples. I have loved them since I was a kid. Now I'm thinking that these would be perfect to hand out to the parents or perhaps at a Halloween party that you might be hosting. They look pretty awesome to me... and yes, they do look cursed lol.

I think that I began to love quotes when I began to thumb through my mom's Women's Day magazines. They always devoted an entire page to quotes that were sent in by their readers. They were so thought provoking. I always looked forward to reading them.

This is my second most popular blog. It is filled with videos that I have found during the day. It is so easy to miss the good ones. I hope that you enjoy what I have found!!

Homemade Caramel Apples

I am a huge fan of candy apples... of any sort. The gourmet versions take them to a whole new level, but the old fashioned caramel versions are perfect for Halloween especially when the are rolled or sprinkled with nuts!!!

And did you notice the measuring cups?? They are almost antiques lol. They are old Tupperware measuring cups. And why do I know this?? I own the exact same cups... colour and all!! I bought them in the mid seventies! Antiques to a lot of the kids out there lol!!

Healthy School Lunch Principles - Weelicious


I don't make kid's lunches anymore, but I do have to make my own and all the rules still apply. Okay, I might not use the melon baller, but I like the fact that I have four categories to fill for my own lunch. There was a time when I simply slathered some peanut butter on some toast and I was done. While that's not really all that bad, I ignored the fruit and veggies part of my lunch. Now, I have everything set aside so everything is at my fingertips and my lunches are pretty darn good if I do say so myself ;)
