Caprese Grilled Cheese

Caprese Grilled Cheese

Celebrate National Grilled Cheese Month with this Caprese Grilled Cheese sandwich from www.drugstoredivas.net.April is National Grilled Cheese month, apparently. Most foods get a day. Coffee is a lifesaver and it only gets one day in September. But grilled cheese gets an entire month. Makes no sense to me, but I love cheese, so I’m just gonna accept this and use it as an excuse to eat the gooey goodness this month. And as an excuse to share my Caprese Grilled Cheese sandwich recipe. It’s so amazing. It’ll be your new favorite. Trust me.

Caprese Grilled Cheese

What You’ll Need:

  • Two slices of bread
  • Mozzarella cheese
  • Kale pesto
  • Tomato slices
  • Butter

What You’ll Do:

Make the kale pesto.

Spread it on one side of each slice of bread. Put slices of cheese and tomato in the sandwich, then close it (with both kale sides in).

Spread butter on the outside of a the sandwich, and put that side down in a skillet. Then, spread butter on the side that is up and press down on the sandwich with a bacon press.

When the cheese starts getting melted, flip the sandwich and press it back down with the bacon press.

I’ll be honest: I never liked fresh pasta. It just always tasted so off to me, which is a hard thing to describe, but that’s the truth. Pete is a huge fan of fresh pasta, so when my grandma got him a pasta maker last Christmas, I let out a little sigh. It meant unfavorable fresh pasta would be in our home.

And then Pete made it.

It was amazing.

All these high-end restaurants making fresh pasta not to my taste, but Pete’s recipe is so good. He makes it often, and I just love it. He uses the same dough recipe for spaghetti, lasagna noodles, and ravioli, too — and it’s amazing every time. Pete used it over the weekend to make ravioli stuffed with my favorite kale pesto. What a delicious dinner!

We currently have the new Softsoap Hand Wash Plus Lotion, in the aloe water & lime variant, in our kitchen. It’s perfect there. When you’re cooking, you are generally washing your hands a lot, and that really can make your hands dry. So having a soap that adds some lotion to soothe is great.

And this time of year, when winter is making your hands so dry, you definitely want to put lotion on them. This is a great way to do that without the greasiness that lotion can leave.

Zucchini Bread

Zucchini Bread

Looking for a great breakfast recipe? Check out this zucchini bread recipe from www.drugstoredivas.net.Every summer, a group of my family and friends would go camping for a week. The adults would pack coolers with food and drinks. My aunt used to make zucchini bread a lot during this time. One year, my cousin was old enough to help and made the loaf herself.

That was the year a squirrel climbed into their car when they were unpacking their camping gear … and ate the bread!

I actually don’t remember ever seeing zucchini bread at any family function again. It popped into my head recently, so of course, I had to ask my aunt for her recipe. It has changed since the year the squirrel ate it. It’s a lot healthier now, but still tastes just as great.

Bake for one hour and 15 minutes.

What’s great about this recipe is that you can freeze the second loaf. I wrap it in foil, then place it in a freezer safe bag. If you’re having overnight guests, pull it out and let it defrost in the fridge. It will be ready for your guests the next day.

If you make this and you need it a little sweeter, you can add a dollop of honey too. Or, if make it with 3/4 white flour and 1/4 whole wheat flour, then continue the recipe as is.
