    Happy Grilled Cheese Month! Time to celebrate that toasty, buttery, ooey-gooey goodness that comes from melted cheese between crisp bread. One of the things I love most about grilled cheese sandwiches is that there are a bazillion different possible combinations. You could have a different one every day for a year and never repeat an idea! Some of you are traditionalists who love to stick with the original: American cheese between white slices. But for those of you who believe variety is the spice of life, I give you 8 fun, meltingly delicious grilled cheese sandwiches to try before the end of April. Are you ready? Go!

    My daughter HATES grocery shopping, so I try to consolidate our trips to the store. And I hate spending too much money on food and too much time preparing our meals. That's why I love finding ways to make what I do buy stretch.

    Recently I shared how to turn one chicken into three meals. You can do the same thing with a beef roast. Here's how!

    Can you believe that it's St. Patrick's Day this Monday? March is truly flying by, and who knew it'd be time to whip out the green outfits and beer so soon? You're already set with some typical St. Patrick's Day recipes, like Irish soda bread, corned beef and cabbage, and Shamrock Shakes. But since the temps still have yet to warm up in most parts of the U.S., why not indulge in one last ultimate comfort food -- traditional Irish shepherd's pie.

    This Irish shepherd's pie recipe from Food.com is super straightforward and versatile. You pretty much cook all the ingredients in a pot, top it off with some mashed potatoes, and brush the potatoes with egg and Parmesan cheese -- and you're done! Hearty, delicious, versatile, filled with beef or lamb, this will surely get you into the Irish spirit in no time. The popular dish, also called cottage pie, originated in the UK and Ireland, so feel free to honor its origin and indulge a little this holiday!

    I just want you all to know, I made a point of writing this post after lunchtime. And if you happen to be eating right now, I would strongly encourage you to put your fork down, swallow what's in your mouth, and grip the edge of your desk. Because: A woman found a lizard in her kale salad. But she didn't just find a lizard, as in a live lizard zipping in and out of the kale leaves. No, it's much worse than that. Robin Sandusky found just the head and an arm of the lizard.

    Every day around lunchtime, I am slapped in the face with a huge pang of food envy. While my family does get delicious dinners, my midday meals pretty much suck. I’m a decent cook, and my daughter even claims that I’m the best chef in the whole wide world, but during my busy workday, lunch becomes a necessity rather than a meal to savor. This is when the food jealousy creeps in.

    While scanning through my friends' Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook feeds, I am left salivating after seeing photos of the amazing, beautiful food they eat for lunch. I should add that I have many a food blogger in my inner circle, so they're pros at making incredible meals and sharing the results online. So there I am. Staring at my own, lame lunch --which 9 times out of 10 is quinoa, hummus, lettuce, and egg. Yes, it may be healthy, but it ain’t pretty. And it's almost always the same.

    Thank heaven for the hysterically funny new "Sad Food" trend!

    You obviously know what this weekend is ... it's Super Bowl Sunday! The Denver Broncos are taking on the Seattle Seahawks in what should be an exciting matchup, but what we're all really concerned with is the commercials food. Chili, wings, nachos, dips, beer, it's a glutton's dream come true. What better way to kick off the biggest game of the year than by whipping up your very own chicken wings? The best part? You can do it in your slow cooker.

    That's right, get a jump start on these babies early in the morning, then have them warm and juicy and ready to go when the game starts at 6:30 p.m. These wings, from Betty Crocker, have a teriyaki twist for even more flavor. So easy and delicious, you'll love the convenience of being able to use your slow cooker anget to enjoy wings that have been slowly marinating all day for five hours! Is it Sunday yet?

    The following is a post from our sponsor, Panera.

    It’s right around this time of year that I begin to realize I am slipping on my perennial New Year’s Resolution: to eat healthier. I start with the best of intentions, but my job gets crazy, the kids need help with homework, and ... it’s easy to slip.

    I am always on the lookout for healthy, nutritious, delicious, AND fast alternatives to keep fueled on the go. But, having tried a lot of things, I’m pretty skeptical too. I’ve had the “power bars” that promise a full belly but turn out to be little bricks of sugar, the puffed rice concoctions that taste like cardboard, and the salads advertised as a full meal that don’t even get me through 2 p.m. without me raiding the vending machine. I won’t lie: there’s a part of me that wonders if it’s possible to eat right on the go and be satisfied.

    Like every good Italian girl, I appreciate a well-made meatball sandwich. There's just something about the combination of textures -- crispy French bread meeting cheesy, aromatic chopped meat -- that makes my taste buds very happy. But I'll be honest. Your typical meatball hero can get a little boring. There, I said it.

    So I was over the moon to find a recipe that incorporates a few unorthodox ingredients and really kicks your meatball sandwich up a few notches. Chili powder? Check. Cinnamon? Yes, please. Allspice? Now we're talking.

    Of course it's easy enough to dial up your local pizza joint and have a pie delivered, but nothing tastes as fresh and wonderful and delicious as homemade pizza.

Obviously you can get store-bought pizza dough, but if you really want to go all out, this homemade pizza recipe from Simply Recipes has you making it from scratch. We just wanted to cover all the bases.

    Check out the original link for some amazing step-by-step photos. Don't be intimidated by the recipe's length -- a majority of it is how to make the dough, and there are lots of helpful hints sprinkled throughout. Then do what you wish for your toppings! Mushrooms, onions, peppers, fresh basil, tomatoes ... yummy goodness all around!
