I headed to my local farmer’s market this weekend with high hopes of gaining some good panini inspiration.  And I did…but not in the way I’d expected. It was my first trip to the farmer’s market in over a year and I soon remembered why it had been so long.  Two tomatoes ran me $7.50!!  […]

February 12, 2008

Raspberries on chicken panini?? It’s far from traditional, but the unexpected sweetness of the raspberry preserves on this sandwich provide just the right complement to the saltiness of the asiago cheese and rotisserie chicken and the tartness of Granny Smith apples.

Buffalo Chicken Panini

January 30, 2008

Here’s a way to serve Buffalo chicken for the big game, panini-style! Simmered in wing sauce, the chicken has all the spicy and tangy flavors you love nestled with creamy melted blue cheese and sweet caramelized onions.
