Borrowing a lesson from barbecue for a better grilled cheese

March 28, 2015

For me, a grilled cheese sandwich is just pure comfort. And truth is, even a bad grilled cheese is satisfying. But a great grilled cheese will change your day for the better.
Most of us have childhood memories of our perfect grilled cheese. Mine is the classic sandwich dished up at my local drugstore. My best friend and I would ride our bikes there, sit at the counter and order a fresh-squeezed lemonade with a grilled cheese. The sandwich was made on a griddle with white bread and a single slice of American cheese.

Throw in mischievous puzzles, functional and fashionable home decor and unique pieces of art and you would see a world created by Ray Gotz.

A brimming pot of hearty stew is a gift in so many ways during the gray, bone-chilling days of winter. Simmering merrily away on the stove, it warms the kitchen (especially if you fire up the oven and bake a pan of cornbread to serve with it). Its aroma lifts the spirits, encouraging anyone who walks through the front door that they are finally home.

And given that it's made in a huge pot, it's an antidote to loneliness. It begs to be shared with your neighbors!
