Caprese salad*

Ok, this is such a perfect lunch in my opinion! What you want to do is slice the tomatoes pretty thin, and do the same with the mozzarella. On a plate, layer the tomato and mozzarella and then put the thinly sliced basil on top. Drizzle with the olive oil and the balsamic and put some good sea salt (to taste!) and some freshly ground pepper! YUM!...

Grilled ham and cheese sandwiches

Spread 4 of the slices with some of the softened butter, only use half of the butter because you’ll need the rest later! Turn over and spread all 8 sides of the bread with a little butter. Place a slice or 2 of ham on 4 slices of bread and top with a 1/4 sliced gruyere cheese. Cover the top with the remaining 4 bread slices....

Form into a ball with your hands, slapping that sucker trying to get it as tight as you can. Put a little salt and pepper on th...

Bistro Salad*

In your super cute salad bowl, put the olive oil, balsamic, minced garlic, and sundried tomatoes. Mix it all together with your salad tongs and try and break up the sundried tomatoes a little!

Brie and turkey croissant*

Ok, this is the best sandwich, hands down! Trust me!!! So if you have a griddle use that but if not, just use a large skillet. So heat that up baby up over medium.

Once the pan is hot, take a little butter… or Pam and and grease it up. Put the sandwiches on and let cook for abou...
