Spinach Ricotta Grilled Cheese

You may notice a theme in the next few weeks of our blog – FAST! As I mentioned last week, back to school season has us busy busy busy with little time to plan and execute elaborate meals.

Sometimes, the simplest meals are the best anyway! The recipe this week is a great example of just that. You really can’t go wrong with any form of grilled cheese, and this Spinach Ricotta version did NOT disappoint!

The recipe is written per sandwich, so make sure to gather enough ingredients for however many you plan to eat. Full disclosure, we each ate two of these bad boys because they were truly that good!

TIP – Get a good sourdough bread from a local bakery. It will make alllllll the difference! We got ours from Amazing Grains Bread Co.

What’s your favorite way to dress up a grilled cheese? Let us know in the comments below!

Paneer Makhani N’aan Pizza

Guys, I have been SLACKING lately. I completely forgot to write a blog for our usual Tuesday post, and now here we are at the end of the week and I’m giving you a short one. But, good things often come in small (short?) packages!

We have been on an Indian food kick lately. For the last three weeks, we have spent every Friday date night at our favorite Indian restaurant mainlining Makhani like our lives depend on it. Fortunately, the restaurant jars their incredible sauce, so we could bring it home to make this fantastic concoction.

I present to you, Paneer Makhani N’aan Pizza! This is so simple that I’m not even going to write it out as a recipe. Just go to the store and get some Makhani sauce, N’aan, Paneer and shredded mozzarella then build your pizza! We also added diced red onion and some cilantro (Steven Michael had cilantro, I did NOT have that nasty soap leaf on mine), but you can add any other toppings you would like. I highly recommend going heavy on the sauce because it’s the best part!

I’m off to a girls weekend trip to a mountain lodge (yay, vaccines!). I promise I’ll get my $#!+ together for next week! See you soon!
