Going to Greece is on my bucket list. I hope I find myself there some day.
I've wondered about those sandwich presses, and whether it would be worth the precious cupboard space to get one. Now I'm thinking I need one! This post definitely made me hungry.

I held out asking for the panini press too because I wasn't sure it would be worth it. But I've had it for less than a week now and it is SO worth it! The quesadillas cook super fast and are well-made--crispy on the outside, oozing cheese on the inside. I also like how it encourages adding lots of veggies and other yummy ingredients into the sandwiches.

Sure--come right over, Marti!

WE had some amazing paninis in Italy, too, and it's so neat to recreate the experience at home. I'm always amazed how cooking can instantly bring back a place faraway, and memories from long ago.

I haven't made a straight grilled cheese with the press yet, but I plan to!

Thanks for your comment!
