Nutella brie-nana grilled cheese sandwich

I went from writing a post a day in early December to a post a week here in early January. I have been working on a big project that is food-related and that I am very excited about. I will be ready to unveil it in a few weeks! Wooo!

In fact, this post provides a giant clue about what my secret project is. Any guesses?

Thanks again for all of the wonderful comments and emails regarding my website. I will not ignore a single one! My boys and I are enjoying a lazy Saturday, so I will share this recipe with you and get back to relaxing on the couch. Important business calls..

This looks amazing, but I've never thought to put banana's with brie, let alone any kind of cheese.

This looks yummy. That's one fancy grilled cheese. I love me some good nutella. I did the same thing but with bananas instead of the cheese. I have been following for a couple of month now and I love how you do the cooking tutorials. I am pretty lazy on the cooking front and I love it when a picture shows everything its better than words.
