Original Cheese Zombie Sandwiches

It might have been the name that drew me in. The Cheese Zombie. It was the wholehearted endorsement of those who had grown up on Cheese Zombies that hooked me. A Cheese Zombie is a sheet tray of home-made bread layered with an oozy, gooey American cheese and Cheese Zombies are sooo much better than they sound.

Plus plus!

Classic Ham Salad

I love quaint, old expressions and this year with all the our hot, hot days I kept thinking about “Dog days of summer.” Now, being a dog lover, I always thought that meant the hot August days where it was all a dog could do but find a bit of shade and pant and try to stay cool.

Cubano (Cuban) Sandwiches

The Cuban sandwich – such a classic and so American, from what I understand! And like many classics, the Cubano sandwich sparks heated debate. There are those who say the bread makes the sandwich and it’s impossible to have a great one outside of Miami  – I disagree. I think you will, too, after your first bite of this one!
