Sheet Pan Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

Sheet Pan Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

I LOVE a good melty, cheesy grilled cheese sandwich. But, it honestly never fails. I burn at least 1 side of EVERY single grilled cheese sandwich I make. No matter how hard I try – the pan gets hotter faster than I expect and once I flip it over – BOOM! black as a piece of coal (and similar tasting too).

Bittersweet Chocolate Chunk Biscuits w/ Fudge Gravy

Chocolate Chunk Biscuits?! You guys — biscuits have become my life. With four kids and a hubby at home all of the time (sheltering in place), I haven’t exactly had extra time on my hands. But I sure have had a renewed desire to practice comfort food and provide comfort food. ((me along with the entire nation, I think!))

No kidding, I think I’ve made 200 biscuits in the last month!!
