A tuna salad sandwich and a grilled cheese sandwich get married, making this easy tuna melt, a perfect meal for busy nights or when you want some comfort food.
This quiche, rich with ham, Gruyere Cheese, and Leeks will make any breakfast, lunch, or dinner shine.
A Croque-Monsieur is the French answer to the grilled cheese sandwich. And it’s pretty darn awesome. French food gets a reputation for being complicated. I can see that.

Who says salads can’t make a meal? This Chicken and Prosciutto Salad will fill you up and treat your tastebuds. Last fall we took the whole fam (all eight of us) to France for a month. It was amazing. I can’t tell you how much I’m itching to go back! We flew nonstop from LA to […]
