Totoro Jalapeño Grilled Cheese Recipe

Totoro week continues with this Totoro jalapeño grilled cheese! Be sure to check out Lyndsay’s Totoro cake tutorial and my Totoro apple pie pancakes and Totoro black sesame donuts! I'm ending off Totoro week with a Totoro grilled cheese! He's savoury, he's spicy, he's grilled to perfection. I had the hardest time figuring out what his signature white belly would be made of, but when I came across half a wheel of brie in my cheese drawer (yes, I have a cheese drawer) it was like the Totoro stars aligned.

Totoro Black Sesame Donuts Recipe

Totoro week continues with these black sesame Totoros! Be sure to check out Lyndsay's Totoro cake tutorial and my Totoro apple pie pancakes! Do you guys ever picture something coming out perfectly?

I thought about the toppings, the dough, the logistics of baking off pizzas while they were over, how I set the table, everything.

Friday Links: 10.24.2014 & FBC

It's been a strange week and there's a lot that's going on in the world (as always), but I prefer my little corner of the internet to be my cozy spot where nothing bad ever happens. And with that, I'm glad that it's Friday. I spent the week spending nights in with Mike and meeting up with friends, new and old. It looks like the weekend is going to be filled with food (no surprise there) and a bunch of errands that I've been putting off forever.
