Texas Toast Asparagus Crab Melt

Hello everyone! While my world continues to be overtaken by THE MOVE (there’s a gentleman shampooing the rugs at this very moment), my friend Amy Flanigan from Very Culinary is stopping by Panini Happy today to share her amazing grilled cheese — the Texas Toast Asparagus Crab Melt.

Pickled Asparagus Grilled Cheese

Happy National Grilled Cheese Month! I know it’s been a little quiet around here lately — my family is getting ready to bid a bittersweet farewell to San Diego and move back up to the Bay Area, so my time has been completely zapped by decluttering, packing, househunting and other relocation joys.

Grilled Banana Bread…and our Hawaiian Vacation!

Under the shade of an umbrella, reclined in a beach chair with my sandy legs outstretched, in view of coconut trees, paddle surfers and my little kids who are splashing at the edge of the lagoon…this is my paradise.

Cajun Breakfast Panini + $100 Visa Gift Card Giveaway

“How about Andouille and eggs?” my mother-in-law Susan suggested, without a moment’s hesitation. After several days of mulling over Mardi Gras-themed panini ideas – and multiple trips to the grocery store for all kinds of ingredients – I struggled to come up with a concept that really spoke to me.

Chocolate Spread Smackdown

What do you do when you discover five different types of chocolate hazelnut spread in your pantry? Well, if you’re me, you conduct a little Chocolate Spread Smackdown — a non-scientific, yet indulgently fun, taste test to understand the pros and cons, similarities and difference between the various spreads on the market.

Over the years I’ve noticed there’s kind of a “difference”, shall we say, between the quesadillas I get at a Mexican restaurant or taquería and the ones I make at home.

Grilled Potatoes Anna…and San Diego’s Brooklyn Girl!

Potatoes, butter, salt and pepper — that’s all it apparently takes to get me very excited about a side dish!

Merry Christmas to all! This is always one of my favorite posts  — the one where I get to reflect back on My Best Panini Press Recipes of the Year.

Double Chocolate Panini

If Double Chocolate Panini are wrong, I don’t think I want to be right. My little kids came home from the park yesterday just as I was finishing up with these photos, and their jaws kind of dropped when they saw the mischief I had gotten into in the kitchen.

Brussels Sprouts, Bacon and Smoked Cheddar Panini…and My Trip to Tillamook!

It’s taken me all week to pull together this post – I’ve got lots of great stuff to share! First, there’s the incredible two-day blogger excursion through Oregon I went on last month, hosted by Tillamook. I’ve been eager to show you what I got to see and do in Portland, at the Tillamook factory, along the Oregon coast and on the farm.
