Little Muenster's grilled cheeseThere's nothing better than a gooey grilled cheese sandwich. But now that it's warming up, you're probably craving less comfort food -- and something that tastes a little lighter for spring.
Adam Schneider and Vanessa Palazio, co-owners of Little Muenster in Manhattan and Brooklyn, share their sandwich recipe with a twist (gruyere cheese! pickled onions!) with Yahoo! Shine.
The dish is "interactive and easy for even kids to do," Schneider tells Shine. (He and Palazio will be whipping up thousands over the weekend at Brooklyn's second annual Great GoogaMooga food and music festival, which attracted 40,000 people last year. Over Friday to Sunday, the festival, held in sprawling Prospect Park, will feature food from 85 New York restaurants, hundreds of specially curated wines, beers, and cocktails, and performances by bands like The Darkness, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and The Flaming Lips.)
Recipe: A great summer salad
The best thing: "In a half hour, you have a really good tasting grilled cheese."

The guys, 34, laugh off the idea that the show isn't real. "Everything is genuine, and we keep it nice and transparent," Jonathan tells Yahoo! Shine.
"We've had people watch the show and go on fact-finding missions," he adds. "Every home is on the MLS or for sale by owner. You can go online and search, unlike some of these other shows showing houses that aren't even for sale." (One subject who appeared on "House Hunters" wrote on a blog, "You have to already own the house that gets picked at the end of the show.")

(Justin Sullivan/Getty Images) Last July, I was involuntarily bumped from a United flight, kicking off a 16-hour travel odyssey from New York to Seattle to Portland. While there are some people who try to get bumped from flights to collect vouchers and upgrades, this was the furthest thing from my mind as I tried to make my way to the northwest to attend a close friend's wedding.Read More »from Involuntarily Bumped from Flight?

The only redeeming outcome of missing my flight: "If people are involuntarily bumped, they should realize they have the right to insist on cash," Bill Mosley, a spokesperson for the Department of Transportation, tells Yahoo! Shine.

How much depends on how inconvenienced you are. If you get to your final destination within an hour, don't expect anything. If you arrive between one and two hours late, the airline owes you 200% of your one-way fare, a $650 maximum. If you arrive more than two hours later, or if the airline doesn't help you get to your final destination, they owe you 400% of your
