After the success of turning jalapeño poppers into grilled cheese sandwiches (aka the jalapeño popper grilled cheese sandwich ) I was wondering what other dishes I could turn into grilled cheese sandwiches. The basic idea is to take all of the flavours of a food that I am already totally into and use them in a grilled cheese sandwich. It did not take me too long to think of something perfect and it is interesting that it is also classic bar food, buffalo chicken wings, which are also one of my favourites.

Last month I hopped out to Breckenridge for a weekend to go skiing and catch up with my good friend Courtney. For years, she has been one of my favorite crafty/cooking friends. So when she mentioned that she brought along some yummy “energy bites” for us to take on the slopes, I was intrigued. Upon first glance in the fridge, I admit I commented they kind of looked like meatballs. :) But after one delicious bite, I realized they were basically a healthy version of my favorite no bake cookies !! I’m not kidding. For any of you who have ever loved no bakes, these little guys taste amazingly similar, but without the sticks of butter and with lots of other fun healthy ingredients thrown in.

It’s my husband’s favorite time of the year… football season ! My husband, Eric, loves spending all day Sunday watching his football games, screaming his head off when the quarterback makes a good or bad play or laughing his butt off when you he sees a fat linebacker do a victory dance. He’ll be partaking in these fun man-ly activities until Superbowl. Help me.

Duck, quail, chicken, farm-fresh or free-range, white, brown or speckled, eggs have a long culinary history and should be revered. I am a huge fan of eating them hard-boiled, chopped up with butter and salt in a bowl. It was what my mom fed me every time I was sick; it's easy to swallow on a sore throat.

A couple weeks ago, Tina and I had dinner at the E&O Trading Company in San Jose, CA. We found the restaurant to be a noisy, up-scale, Southeast Asian fusion restaurant that did not serve exceptional food. (Most of the food was high quality and very tasty, but you can get similar meals at a Thai or Malaysian restaurant for a third of the price.) One dish that did stand out was their Indonesian Corn Fritters which was served with a spicy soy sauce. I decided to make this dish at home for about a dollar. I place a piece of shelf liner under my cutting board to keep it from moving.

I'm sure you've heard of many "success stories" of people who have lost X number of pounds and really keep them off. What's their secret? It's no secret, really. It's just all about DETERMINATION (along with it comes self-discipline) and knowing WHAT to eat, WHAT NOT to eat, and WHEN to eat. My overall site promotes all these with health and safety in mind.
