What's complicated about a grilled cheese sandwich? Nothing, especially. But, like all culinary classics, one wrong step and your sandwich is toast (so to speak). Pass this along to your friends, your husband, and your kids because life is too short for a bad grilled cheese!
I'm seldom without a package or two of Trader Joe's Middle Eastern Flatbread in my freezer. These chewy, tasty little breads resemble a thick tortilla, come in white or whole wheat and have dozens of uses. Read on for a few ideas and my favorite way to toast them up that makes them even tastier!
Quick and adaptable frittatas are a weekly staple in my household, and I love egg sandwiches in any form. So I can't explain why it took me so long to discover this genius use of leftovers: the frittata sandwich.
Q: My girlfriend says that she has created "the greatest sandwich ever." It's a bagel with cream cheese topped with hard salami and Nacho Cheese Doritos. The textures here are remarkable, but I'd love ideas for a new variation on the taste, which definitely needs improvement. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
It is high tomato season, so any rational bacon-loving person is making (and devouring) juicy BLT sandwiches. We've talked about BLTs quite a bit this week (love the idea of a BLT party!) so we're closing the week with a roundup of resources for making the very best BLT you can eat. From our favorite lettuce, to the best way to store half a tomato, to six great gluten-free sandwich breads, here are resources galore to help you make a superb BLT tonight.
I have to apologize. See, I got so excited about the idea of homemade hamburger buns that....well, I forgot the burger. When you make these, be sure you don't do that because these soft and oh-so-fluffy buns deserve to be crowned with some mighty fine burgers.
BLTs are near and dear to many of our bacon-loving and tomato-craving hearts. So near and dear that we can get very particular about how our seemingly simple BLTs are constructed. Or at least I can. Do you have a favorite way of making one?
The BLT is a crowd-pleaser at any time of year, but when tomatoes are at their peak during the summer, this sandwich is good enough to be the star of the party. Over at Saveur, they have some ideas for organizing an easy and economical BLT party for a crowd.
Turkey is not just for Thanksgiving – it’s great all year round. This take on a traditional Middle Eastern lamb dish is perfect for the hot summer months when lamb might be too heavy a meal.

When we got a basketful of nectarines from our CSA, we initially thought of turning them into a dessert ... but the fruits were so juicy and sweet in their own right that it seemed a crime to cover them up with sugar! Thus, we came up with the nectarine tartine. Not only is it fun to say but it has all the qualities of our favorite kind of summer dish – light, fresh, little or no heat required, and taking full advantage of the season's produce.
