Guest Post :: Vintage Sugarcube!

Oh lawdy, how I loves this sassy lady! But really how can you not?

Jenny J. is the spectacular Vintage Sugarcube and fab friend to ModernKiddo! She takes one perfect recipe and matches it with a hilarious story and fancy vintage togs to blow our little ole minds with every post. And let’s not forget about the piles of hair that are oh so close to God.  I want to put her in my back pocket and bring her out whenever I need to sparkle up! Because, this lady knows how to sparkle.

So, let’s get chatting with our favorite vintage cooking cutie!



Did you know that April is “National Grilled Cheese Month”? I’ve pretty much declared April as, “National Pose with the Hotties Your Friends are Dating Month.” Cheese and Hotties? Can it get any more delicious in here? I think the sound of a “Fetish & Honey Sammie” takes the cake. Who knew, a grilled cheese could be kicked up to “sophisticated dessert” status.

But let’s talk about old boyfriends for a minute. It was an old boyfriend of mine that taught me that feta is only a zillion times better if it’s bought in a block and imported from Bulgaria. Yes, I realize Bulgaria is nowhere near Greece. He was also the same boyfriend that taught me if a man looks sexy by the way he sits in a chair, then you need to seriously brace yourself for what’s about to come.

Ginormous thanks to my fabulous friend Ingrid, for not only snapping these photos, but also letting me borrow her über foxy fellow.

Recipe inspired by The Rose Wine Bar in Southpark

  • 1 whole wheat pita pocket
  • 2 oz feta from block (don’t even think of buying the crumbled crap)
  • drizzle of olive oil
  • drizzle of honey

Open pita completely and fill with slices of block feta. Leave about 1 inch around edge of pita free. This is so when the feta melts it won’t make a mess. Drizzle skillet with olive oil and grill feta filled pita on each side until slightly browned. Drizzle honey on top.

Behave tonight!


Oh, Miz VS, I can’t get enough of you! Thanks for sharing this divine sounding and I’m sure equally divine tasting treat with us here at!

  2. I am SO making this this weekend. Just the perfect easy breezy food I can rock out. And the sweet salty thing is mah favorite! GENIUS Miz Jenny! Is there nothing you can’t do?

  3. Well, she’s not called Mizz Sugarcube for nothing! We all adore Jenny J and her Godly hair and of course, those honey feta pitas look delish too… Next time, I’ll look more closely at the way a man sits, not the way he discreetly adjusts himself while grooving on the dance floor. Haha!

  4. So great to see my favorite “sweetie” on your blog. Miss Sugarcube is not only the most inventive and creative chef out there, but she is also the nicest neighbor I’ve ever had. I love all her recipes including this one (and her brownies are to die for…)

  5. Jenny J these sandwiches are almost amazing as you are. Great photos! Can’t imagine why you’d have to borrow anyone elses boyfriend. We need to find you a lucky man! Oh but would he be in for the ride of his life!!! Love ya Jenny!
