Grilled Chicken Caprese Grilled Cheese & Travel Wrap {Tales from the Trenches}

Caprese Grilled Cheese

This is my first full week without any travel in a long time. I adored my book tour, but am happy to have a little break at home to enjoy my family again. I’ve been cooking up a storm in my kitchen and have a blast getting back into my everyday cooking rhythm. Rest assured you’ll be reading more about that in the weeks to come! In the mean time, I am here to say thanks, once again, for all the awesome support this spring. I have some more book signing dates in the works for summer, but for the next few weeks I am sticking around close to home.

To cap off my thank you post I have to share one of the best grilled cheeses I’ve made in a long while. I swear, this is the most deliciously satisfying sandwich for summer. I usually eat it for lunch, but have also made it for dinner. Either way it hits the spot! It has become one of my go-to meals when I return home from traveling. The other day I finally thought to snap a picture of it. My personal way of saying thank you, I suppose. To make it simply assemble the grilled cheese with fresh mozzarella, a slice of tomato and a few slices of grilled or breaded chicken from dinner last night. Then add a swipe of pesto and toast it in a pan with butter. So easy!

In case you are interested, here is the press and the television appearances from my recent tour. Stay tuned for more summer book signing dates soon!
