I’m such a sucker for summertime food. From drippy rocket pops to decked out hot dogs on the grill, I melt at the thought of it. Literally. But with all the junk that comes with grill-outs and pool parties, there’s also some super delicious produce that screams of the season, too.
Down here in Florida, tomato season is just beginning and we’re getting the prettiest, tastiest tomatoes we’ve had all year. You might have seen on my insta-story the 10 lbs of organic sun golds that my neighbor brought me a few days ago.

It’s a mix-up of two American classics that almost mimic the awesome tastes of a cheese plate when transformed into a grilled cheese.
And if you didn’t see on my insta this week, I’ve partnered with Sara Lee this month to bring back my psych style knowledge of statistics from my
