Grilled cheese really does make everything magical!  This is my favorite go to treat and there are so many ways to dress up a plain old grilled cheese.  My favorite trick is using a light slather of mayo on the outside instead of butter, when you toast it in the pan it gets super toasty and crisp!

Thurs 3/1 National Peanut Butter Lovers Day

Oh my sweet waist line, I love me some Peanut Butter! Peanut Butter dates all the way back to ancient Incas and Aztecs who would roast and then grind peanuts into paste, however George Washington Carver was the premier brainiac associated with this beloved treat. He discovered over 300 uses for peanuts including shampoo, shaving cream and glue. Today we mostly inhale it due to it’s amazing creamy consistency, but it actually is a healthy treat that’s high in protein when eating in a normal portion… and a no a serving spoon doesn’t count as a spoonful.
