Our New Favorite Recipes

Hi all,

The boys and I decided to make lunch for all of the staff at Rit's school last week. I wanted to share the two yummy recipes we tried out. We made grown up grilled cheese sandwiches and the best cookies ever for dessert. First, I'd better tell you about the sandwiches. I used country white bread, each slice buttered on one side. On one slice, spread ricotta cheese. Here's the pile: First, place the ricotta-spread slice butter side down on your griddle or frying pan. Then add your meat like Canadian bacon or pepperoni. The meat can easily be left out. Pile on some roasted red peppers and fresh basil. Add some balsamic vinaigrette. Top with thickly sliced fresh mozzarella and cap it with your remaining slice of bread. Grill on both sides until browned and the cheese is nice and gooey. They are good beyond description. 

Now onto the cookies. There seems to be a trend lately in baking: salty and sweet. It's a delicious combination. For example, salted caramel cupcakes. YUM.I found the recipe on a blog called Sugar Cooking. Pretzel Cookies with Chocolate and Peanut Butter Chips. WHAT?! They are beyond delicious. Be sure to add the salt on top. It's the prefect finishing touch.

Both the sandwiches and the cookies were a big hit. Give them a try and let me know what you think!

Love, Kate
