It’s almost over. My weekly ode to the grilled cheese will soon be on hiatus until next April.

If you missed my Sweet Pear and Rosemary Honey with Havarti Grilled CheeseHoney Smoked Ham with Fig Spread Grilled Cheese or Turkey and White Cheddar with Caramelized Onion & Grape Grilled Cheese you can still add them to your weekend honey-do list.

But until we make the move into margaritas and Mother’s Day brunches, I have two more sandwiches to squeeze in.

This week’s grilled cheese is all about the aroma. As in the stink. Tallegio is a creamy Italian cows milk cheese that at first waft might send a 411 alert to your tastebuds to brace themselves for an alarmingly strong bite. But contrary to its aroma, Tallegio’s flavor is more mild, even more so than the far more popular blues or gorgonzola. Its more like a brie, with a bit of a fruity nutty flavor to top it off.

And creamy? Oh baby. It’s creamy.

Speaking of baby, before we get into the cheese let’s get into this week’s Friday Faves.

  1. Congratulations to Annaliese and her brand new baby toes: the ultimate reason to take some time out from blogging
  2. Despite all of the brou-ha-ha with Facebook, I still love Instagram (follow me here) and want to keep up on it all the time. Here’s an app roundup to help me do just that
  3. Totally pinned this organizing idea from one of my fave design bloggers in hopes to make pretty presents while keeping my sanity
  4. Another great food blog hits the iPhone app world. I wish her brother needed another Senior project and I’d put him to work. I wonder how long it will be before blogs are replaced by apps?
  5. Mother’s Day is right around the corner so order a hard copy of our Cookie Cravings cookbook for yo mama and maybe she’ll make you a batch of cookies like the good ol’ days
  6. And then make her brunch ala eggs bene from Katherine’s new book
  7. Or have a coffee clutch with friends
  8. Hey look, they put me on the hot seat 
  9. Thanks to Jeanette’s collaborative Pinterest board you’ll find plenty of inspiration to create and submit to the summer issue of Foodie Crush
  10. And don’t miss entering to win stunning handmade swag from Harabu house  and a little cash in your pocket to spend as you see fit

Man, I’m slow! Thank you for answering the question that has been rolling around in my brain the last couple of weeks, “what’s with all the grilled cheese recipes” I just thought all the bloggers on the planet were having SERIOUS grilled cheese cravings…had no clue until just now that it’s national grilled cheese month. Wow. Well, I have enjoyed every second of these grilled cheese posts…they have been so creative, crispy and melty, which is the way every day should be lived. All of your grilled cheeses look absolutely gourmet and I bet they just take you on an epic flavor journey. Well done and thanks!
