It’s one of those “drive on a parkway, park on a driveway” things: grilled cheese sandwiches are seldom actually grilled, at least by home cooks. After all, the only grill most of us have at home is our barbeque, and we’re unlikely to heat that up to make sandwiches.

Graters for Cheese and So Much More

by Jane Wangersky September 12th, 2014| Cooking Basics
My sandwich recipe this week calls for shredded cheese, so of course I couldn’t help mentioning that, though the kind you can buy is certainly handy and also keeps longer, home grated cheese saves you lots of money without causing you a lot of work. So it’s good to

Ham and Cheese Salad

by Jane Wangersky June 19th, 2014| Recipes, Simple Solutions
With a salad to invent and a lot of ham and cheese in my fridge, I began wondering why we’ve come up with ham and cheese, ham salad, but not ham and cheese salad. Well, as it turns out, many people have had that same thought, judging by the

by Jane Wangersky April 11th, 2014| Recipes, Simple Solutions
If you've ever wondered what exactly was in that little packet of orange stuff that comes with packaged macaroni and cheese (Kraft Dinner, in Canada) -- well, I don't know either. And I don't know how it turns into cheese sauce when you mix it with milk and butter.

A Food-Curdling Experience

by Jane Wangersky April 10th, 2014| Cooking Basics
When I was still learning about making cheese sauce at home, I figured it wouldn't matter when I added the grated cheese to the hot milk – either before or after I'd thickened it with flour. I even thought it might be better to add the cheese before thickening.

Artichokes for breakfast? Well, why not, especially if you're on vacation and the B&B hosts are cooking? But if it still seems a little strange, try pairing this lemony dish with a green salad for a meatless but filling supper. The artichokes and lemon aren't the whole story --

Caprese Skewers

Here's a version of "grilled cheese" that not even I had ever thought of, and I speak as someone who's cooked homemade pizza on a barbecue. Mozzarella balls, cherry or grape tomatoes, and basil leaves are threaded onto bamboo skewers and flash grilled. Though you'll have to watch these

Spinach Strudel

by BnB Finder March 19th, 2013| Best BnB Bites, Recipes
Years ago, I somewhat dubiously baked up a recipe I'd found for strudel filled with pears -- and blue cheese. My doubts were put to rest when it turned out to be delicious. Strudel's not just for dessert -- and this week's recipe also proves that spinach can be
