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.
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. There are definitely some complex recipes. Souffle? Croissant? Yeah, I get you. Even a simple mousse au chocolat takes several steps and dirties many bowls. On the other hand, […]
Layer buttery avocado with salsa ingredients on toasted bread for a sandwich that’s light, yet packed with flavor. It’s perfect for Meatless Monday. Years ago in France I had lunch at my friends Julie and Jean-Phillipe’s home. Julie served a halved avocado filled with vinaigrette for the first course. Yum! I thought, but I felt […]

This, my friends, plus a little oil, water, and yeast, can bring you many meals of utter enjoyment. Of course there’s pizza, […]
Let your slow cooker do the work this weekend with an easy sweet and sour chicken filling for sandwiches and wraps. I’ve found that having a plan, and even better, a make-ahead meal, makes for a really relaxed atmosphere in our house. If I know in advance what I’ll be serving and can communicate that […]
