A New Twist on Grilled Cheese

As luck would have it, I came down with my first cold of the season this weekend.  One thing that always makes me feel better when I’m under the weather is a grilled cheese sandwich.

Two Key Takeaways from My College Days

In the last 4-6 weeks I’ve had a flurry of family and friends sending their kids off to school.  Some for the very first time!  It’s sparked a lot of reminiscing, observations on how the college experience has changed these past (gulp) 30 years and conversations pertaining to “What I Wish I’d Known Then”.
