The Close to a Great Month: National Grilled Cheese Month

How many of you actually remembered that April is National Grilled Cheese Month? How many of you think it should be moved to a moreĀ appropriateĀ month? Like January of February… Hmmm? Yeah. Think how much sexier it would be to get (and eat) a grilled cheese on V-Day.

Well I didn’t come up with April for this fantabulous food of amazing but someone did and I’ve been honoring those who made up foodie holidays before me. But I think that me and my Foodie Nation need to make a few changes here and move the month long celebration to a month where we’re not thinking about bathing suits and getting tanned in places that haven’t seen the sun in a while. But in all fairness, grilled cheese is amazing all year round and always will be. So here is my compilation of all the grilled cheese sandwiches I have seen and approved of this month:

Almond Biscotti

Almond Biscotti

A few years ago I figured out how to make biscotti at home and it is actually quite simple and it also means you are no longer constrained to whatever is available in your grocery store. Want them to be hand-dipped in dark chocolate? Use your own or conscript someone else’s hands! I have confined my coffee drinking to mostly weekends at this point in my life but I enjoy a biscotti or other biscuit dipped in tea, which I drink in rather large quantities. Here are a few more recipes I’ve found:
