We have blogged dozens of recipes, most of which we have thoroughly enjoyed. Some of the recipes were incredible (Blintz Souffle), some were surprisingly good (Sweet Potato Gnocchi) while others were a bit disappointing (Greek Moussaka). We have done our best to give you some of the the recipes that have turned out well, but alas, we are guilty of witholding a recipe that we have selfishly enjoyed for years now. We hope you can forgive us…we know you will after you try a bite of this dish.

As we continue on our fresh herb kick, we recently decided to counteract the cold weather with not one, but two, old-time comfort foods: tomato basil soup and grilled cheese sandwiches. But this wasn’t any ordinary pairing of the two comfort foods – instead of eating them separately or dunking the grilled cheese sandwiches into the soup, the sandwiches acted as the croutons. They were nothing like regular croutons that have a crunch, and instead were mostly soft and chewy. Pan-frying them did give them a slight crunch on the exterior though. The basil provided an extra kick of flavor; tomato basil is a great combination and we recommend pairing the two ingredients whenever possible.
