Making Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup on Facebook

What is your favorite go-to comfort food on a cold and snowy day?

I hope you caught this week’s Facebook LIVE when I made two very popular cold weather comfort foods - grilled cheese and tomato soup! According to historians, the modern version of the grilled cheese sandwich originated in the 1920s when inexpensive sliced bread and American cheese became readily available. The similar French croque monsieur is a baked or fried boiled ham and cheese sandwich, which originated in European cafés and bars as a quick snack. Both are so delicious and both can take on so many variations - I shared several grilled cheese ideas during our broadcast.

I hosted our Facebook LIVE from our Martha Stewart Living Kitchen made exclusively at The Home Depot. I love our entire kitchen collection - it includes everything you need to create the perfect cooking space in your home. If you missed this Facebook LIVE, you can still watch it by clicking on this highlighted link!
