Before this recipe, I never had a panini in my life. I’m telling the truth! Oh, I’ve had multiple grilled cheese sandwiches, but I’ve never used a panini press and I’ve never ordered a panini at a restaurant, not because I am gluten free and can’t eat the bread (well, that’s part of it), but…

No, don’t answer that because if you write a comment below saying, “Oh my husband/ boyfriend/ girlfriend/ fiancee/ mom/ stranger I…

As you know from reading this blog, I admit pretty often that I am a HUGE chocolate addict. So big. And sadly, most chocolate contains soy lecithin, which I am highly sensitive to. No matter how many times I try to trick myself and my body that I’ll be okay, I’m not. Thank goodness for…

When I was little, I always liked to hear my mom tell me the story of what she ate before she went into labor with me (well, other than when I made her tell me what kind of day it was when I was born – sunshine with huge, beautiful “birthday clouds”). And I liked…

I’m not a football fan at all. In my Spinach & Artichoke Dip recipe a few weeks ago I’m pretty sure I told you that. But hell, I’m a huge foodie and I love me some wings, dips, and super yum appetizers. So the excuse to pig out on every bad fattening food is always…
