Grilled Pepper Jack Cheese with Green Tomatoes and Bacon
Growing up, there was one comfort food that never failed in my family. Late nights, hard decisions, rainy days, and bad days were all met with the hearty and delcious grilled cheese with tomatoes. For my brothers, or for a really special day, my mom would throw in bacon, or switch up the selection of tomatoes (and for my youngest brother, take out the tomatoes completely). This sandwich became a staple, and now for me, acts as my little home away from home. Super-easy, relatively quick, and with just a few ingredients, grilled cheese with tomatoes (and bacon) never fails. In this recipe, I've made a few changes, adding pepper jack cheese to give it a little kick (although pimento or Cheddar also work very well), and subbed in green tomatoes (which my mom would dub a very special treat). Experiment with tomato variations and mixtures, for added flavor.  Click here to see Green Tomatoes for Everyone.

Pan Bagnat with Grilled Peppers and Basil Vinaigrette
This classic Provençal sandwich, which means "soaked bread" in the ancient Nice dialect, is nothing more than a Salade Niçoise served between two pieces of bread. In the old days, it was considered to be a humble food, made with ingredients that every household would have on hand. But today pan bagnat is fashionable fare. And for good reason: It makes an extraordinarily delicious and satisfying meal. In my version, the grilled peppers add a bit of depth to this simple sandwich, and the basil vinaigrette soaks the whole thing with its ambrosial fragrance — making it the quintessential summer sandwich!
