Grilled Cheese in a Box? Yes Please!

I get super excited about getting mail. Like really, overly amped. LIKE SCREAM AT THE TOP OF MY LUNGS excited. I don’t know why but mail is just so freakin’ fun to me. Why is this important? Because I just got super fun mail. And I want to talk about said super fun mail. When I saw my Mouth.com’s Grilled Cheese, Please delivery box at my doorstep, I was v stoked. This awesome box is fully loaded with all the essentials to make the perfect grilled cheese sandwich. From fresh, fun, and unique jams, to perfect pickles and melty cheeses – it contains everything you need to up your grilled cheese game!

If you haven’t heard of Mouth.com, let me fill ya in. They’re basically like the birchbox of indie foodie awesomeness. With over 50 different expertly curated gift tasters, an overly impressive variety of hand crafted items (more than 1200! say what!), and 15+ super awesome subscription boxes, they’re the go-to source for all of us that live in small towns with little or no access to the amazing world of specialty food gems.

I personally love that I can source all of the cool stuff that I used to be obsessed with back in my Brooklyn cheesemonger days at Depanneur. I also love the convenience of Mouth.com – like where else can I get a fancy bottle of Whiskey delivered right to my doorstep EVERY MONTH?. And not to mention, the whole treat-yo-self aspect which is especially awesome when you don’t feel like brushing your hair for five days.

So instead of keeping all of this goodness to myself, I decided to share the recipes that I created from their GC box. And FYI, i was not paid for this post – I just love all of their products and wanted to share some of the different carb-throbs you can create with it! If you know a grilled cheese fanatic, then you should definitely get them this box – not only will they love it but I’m 100% positive that they’ll love you even more. tehe.

This past month my boyfriend and I both turned thirty (ay yi yi!!! omg I know). Being that he is just 5 days older than me, we’re super fortunate that we get to combine our birthdays into one big ridiculous event.

Since we both love to entertain, we thought that we’d celebrate like the adults we newly are, by bringing a little indulgent class to our boozy brunch bonanza! Cue my passion for grilled cheese and his passion for delicious brunch cocktails and you get one heck of a Bloody Maria (Bloody Mary’s with Tequila!) with an insane-o grilled cheese garnish.
