Caprese Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Caprese Grilled Cheese

This past Wednesday was National Cheese Day, so I obviously had to celebrate during my lunch hour. My first idea was to simply make a grilled cheese, but that’s no way to celebrate a holiday honoring the greatest food on the planet.

White Cheddar & Basil Baked Gnocchi

I have no other means of describing this recipe other than “stupid good.” I am kicking myself for not making more of it, because it was so phenomenal. I’ve seen some gnocchi mac and cheese recipes before, but this one is a definite Pink Troll Kitchen/Danielle Kay original! Basil and white cheddar together are just […]

Hasselback Potatoes

I made some oven-baked potato fries for the Super Bowl, and I have a giant bag of potatoes left over and need to do something with them before they start to look like science experiments.

Who says chicken gets to have all the fun flopping around in a pile of breadcrumbs and cheese? Tofu wanted to join in the party, so I made it happen. I experimented with this on a whim, and it turned out great! When making dinner with your favorite carnivore, you can use exactly the same […]

Easy Peasy Pasta

This tasty pasta & veggies dish is so easy you won’t even break a sweat, unless your stove gives off more heat than your furnace like mine does. Everyone needs a couple “go-to” pasta and vegetable dishes, and this is one of mine. Easy Peasy Pasta (vegan if you skip the parmesan cheese): Pasta of […]

Childhood Lunch Remix

I have fond memories of eating grilled cheese as a child, and it’s one food that I’ve never gotten sick of and probably never will. As an “adult” I’ve revamped the grilled cheese to be even more delicious. Because I made this for lunch in the middle of the week I did not pair it […]
