Sour Power: Goats Milk Cheddar Grilled Cheese with Sour Cherry Jam, Crispy Fried Sage + Bacon on Sourdough Bread

goats milk cheddar grilled cheese with sour cherry jam, crispy fried sage, bacon + black pepper butter on sourdough

Baking and I do not get along. The idea of measuring a bunch of white stuff that all looks the same stresses me the eff out. I can never remember if I added a certain ingredient which then causes me to second guess myself and of course, ruin it. I’ve never been good at it and to tell you the truth, the idea of having to be all scientist-like gives me an automatic tension headache.

Last week when my friends from Brooklyn, Adina and Adam (my fav humans in the world/geniuses behind the skincare wonder-line S.W. Basics), brought me a sourdough starter, I internally panicked.

The Banjo – Peanut Butter, Jalapeno Blackberry Jam + Bacon Grilled Cheese

peanut butter jelly and bacon grilled cheese sandwich - so fun and unexpectedly tasty!

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 good ole’ grad school days.

The Shiny Shiny – Gruyere, Jamon Serrano, Candied Garlic and Tomato Chutney Grilled Cheese

This week will forever go down in history as one of the BEST WEEKS EVER. Why is that you ask? Well, yesterday I flew to my favorite food-land in the whole country – Wisconsin (doiiii) – for a week of cheese life. As you know, I’m a huge fan of American made cheeses and the people of Wisconsin have been so welcoming and generous and um, to be honest, they feed me really, really well so I love them. I’m also pretty much obsessed with Madison, WI and will move here when I get too sick of subways, rats, and cramped living.
