Yes grilled cheese sammiches can be done in so many cool ways and it's an easy thing to fix up real quick for an easy lunch or something. Tuna on grilled cheese is awesome, like a tuna melt I guess? Shredded chicken on a grilled cheese with some roasted red peppers and garlic... so many cool different little combinations from one sammich. Just gotta try different stuff!

Obvious' Chocolate Chip 
-------------------------------

[Image: 52774274_10216263980769766_5313245041915...e=5D1C25CA]

For one batch, you need:
125 grams of butter
110 grams of Brown sugar
110 grams of cane sugar
110 grams of dark chocolate
110 grams of white chocolate
200 grams of baking flower
Half a teaspoon of baking powder (soda)
1 good teaspoon of cacao powder
1 teaspoon of chili powder, but I suggest you make your first batch with a pinch and work up from there. You really need less than you might think!
1 pinch of salt
1 egg

How to:

Melt your butter, either by letting it out of the fridge well in advance or by using your micro-wave. Either works.
Whip up the butter and the sugars into a cohesive goo.
Preheat your oven to 175 degrees celcius 
Take a baking plate or two (if you don't have the time to with only one, though it would bee better for the coloration. I think.) Cover it (or them) with baking-paper, for the oven.
Chop up your dark chocolate into tiny pieces. 
Add your egg, coco-powder and spices into your batter of sugar-butter. Whip it into a further cohesive mix
Add the flower and the dark chocolate bit by bit, while still whipping it up. Take your time. Don't hurry. Better to do this in 5 times too many, rather than 5 times too few.
Using two teaspoons, make little balls from the batter. 
Place the balls of cookie-dough on the baking plates, and leave ample space between them. Especially for your first tray, which can show you how much they spread out when heated. 
Bake all of the cookies and lett them  cool down  on a grid. Do not use a full surface, the bottom needs to breathe.
Only when all cookies are finished and have voiles down, prepare your white chocolate au bain marie.
Line up your cookies on a clean surface. Get as many next to one another as possible, this will make it easier to spread the white chocolate. You will make a bit of a mess.
Using a teaspoon or a fork, take some of the white chocolate and jerk your hand left and right; the chocolate will fly and fall unevenly. Some cookies will have more, some less, but the overal effect will be pleasing. 
Let it cool down and let THE chocolate harden.
Enjoy.

RE: What's cooking, good-looking?
I had a passion for cooking.
Then I became a chef for fifteen years and completely burned the passion from my system.
Then I got into disability and started making meals for people from what's in their cupboards.
I've gotten a name for it and now cook for most of my clients.
I could feel the passion coming back again.
One client of mine has an extreme intellectual disability, non-verbal and little movement.
The highlight of his day is eating.
His meals usually consist of meat and vege, blended.
But I've been experimenting with herbs and spices and separating each blended vegetable, each with it's own unique but complimentary taste.
It's time consuming, but I know my client can tell the difference.
My passion is back now.
Eventually I'd like to develop a cookbook for carers.

That's pretty awesome LL, so you're a cook for caregivers. Sort of an in-home chef mcgyver? That sounds like a real god place to grow your passion. MAybe instead of a traditional cookbook, you could do a substitute cook book, with creative ways to do normal meals with what's available. Like lasagna without lasagna noodles, and meatballs without bread crumbs and eggs, or stuff like that. Kudos

Isn't lasagna without lasagna noodles an oxymoron?

I've had a "lasagna" with thinly sliced zucchini as a pasta substitute. Not quite the same, but still good.

Oh, I don't doubt that substituting the noodles can be tasty, but it needs a different name.  We occasionally change out the pasta for capicola with the excess fat trimmed.  It's yummers, but it isn't lasagna.

New names for everything would complicate a substitution cook book. Unless we said faux fried chicken when we substituted crushed croutons or corn flakes. So many varieties of faux lasagna.
