Veganism Put A Strain on My Marriage

I finished my vegan challenge. I had to, for the sake of my marriage. When I first declared I was going vegan for the month of January, E defiantly said he would not participate. Which I expected, and respected his decision. This challenge wasn’t intended to be a permanent life change or a political stance. […]

The Ultimate Super Bowl Sandwich Picks

Super Bowl is not the time for fancy five-course dinners. It’s the perfect event for cheesy dips, big, boozy drinks and of course, sandwiches. Naturally, I have picks for the ultimate Super Bowl sandwiches you need to serve for the big game. And guess what? I won’t be vegan for the Feb. 7 matchup, so I […]

Sweet Potato and Black Bean Vegan Chili

Nom nom nom vegan chili. A blizzard is the perfect reason to dig out the big ‘ol Dutch oven or Crock-Pot and make something savory that will feed your family for days. You need something that will free up your busy hours indoors so you have time left to binge watch “House of Cards,” or […]

Mushroom Marinara Sauce

This is the marinara sauce I used on that deee-licious meat-ish balls wrap the other day. Mushroom marinara sauce is not E approved, because it has mushrooms, and mushrooms are on E’s Forbidden Foods list. But this month, we’re going our separate ways in the kitchen. I’m vegan, he’s not. I’ve learned a lot during […]

Meat-ish Balls Wrap With Marinara Sauce

One cannot call themselves a vegan — even if temporarily — and not have visited Thug Kitchen. These potty mouthed chefs are like the N.W.A. of vegan cooking. I love a good “f*cking A” in the kitchen as much as the next hungry sailor. And I needed some ideas for dinner. I knew I could find both […]

Mushroom, Pecan and Lentil Vegan Burgers from Food 52

I’m halfway through with this vegan challenge. How have I been surviving? Vegetables and nuts. And delicious recipes like these vegan burgers. I’ve been eating hella avocados straight from the shell, big pots of roasted vegetables over rice or grains, and a lot of Mexican food, which incorporates a lot of vegetables and is surprising […]

Brunching While Vegan

The vegan thing is trickier than I thought. I’ve been surviving for 9 days as a vegan, mostly on vegetables and quinoa, bread and chia seed pudding. I’ve reintroduced myself to oatmeal, which I haven’t eaten in years. But I’ve made several non-vegan mistakes, just out of habit I can’t seem to break. I accidentally […]

Food Goals and Experiments for 2016

New year, new goals. I had trouble writing down what I wanted to accomplish in 2016. Am I really going to learn to kitesurf? What about picking up that Spanish again? So much to do, so little time. But I at least have my food goals in line. I’ve started the year by doing something […]

To A Fabulous 2015…

2015 is coming to a close tonight. Boy, what a ride it’s been. E and I got married. I published a book about this whole 300 sandwiches experience, revealing more about myself than I ever thought I would. We traveled the world. We met new friends. We saw old friends grow and enter new phases […]

Christmas Morning Gingerbread Pancakes

Christmas Eve, y’all. I’m not concerned with the presents or Santa. I’m concerned about breakfast. Merry merry gingerbread pancakes! E and I are headed up to Vermont for Christmas. As you know, E and I are avid snowboarders, and we’ve been going to Vermont the past couple of winters. The conditions had been pretty good […]

Snickerdoodles and S’mores, or Snickerdoole S’mores

‘Tis the season to eat copious amounts of sugar. Hey, it’s less than two more until Christmas. And so, snickerdoodle s’mores. Last weekend, E and I hit up two holiday parties and a super fun birthday party at a club in Brooklyn and ended up drinking super fruity drinks and sleeping in super late on […]

Eggnog Waffles For Your Holiday Brunch

Seems it’s Eggnog Week here at 300. Hey, I’m on a roll here. Yesterday I shared our recipe for holiday eggnog. The only reason E and I didn’t drink the entire vat of it is because we had to hit two holiday parties later than evening in Connecticut, a road trip away from our cozy apartment […]

300’s Holiday Eggnog That Will Make You Say Ho Ho Ho

I have to admit, it took me a bit to get into the holiday spirit. I don’t know what my mental block was about. We got our Christmas tree super early this year, and had it up and decorated before Dec. 1. I’ve been invited to several holiday parties. I ordered this holiday onesie to […]

Christmastime Is Here

Prep for Christmas has begun. Tree? Check! A Charlie Brown Christmas Special playing on television? Check! Hot chocolate? Ready! Sugar cookies? Sorta. When E’s mom was here (oh, we had so much fun!), we made our first batch of sugar cookies. She had gifted us a vintage cookie press to make decorative cookies, like this […]

The Thanksgiving Shooter Sandwich Is Still A Game Changer

I can’t wait to get home from shopping with my mom in law in Soho so I can come home and make the ultimate of leftovers sandwiches: the Thanksgiving Shooter Sandwich. I freaked out a few years ago when a reader taught me to make this (and to that reader, I am forever grateful). I […]

“GMA” Thanksgiving Morning After Monte Cristo

This is what you need to make in the morning of Thanksgiving, when you somehow have digested all of the food from the night before but you are STILL STARVING! One cannot subsist on Patti Labelle’s sweet potato pie alone. Not even if your name is James Wright and you sing like a bird. I […]

Patti LaBelle and 300 Sandwiches

(photo by Samantha Bolton for Yahoo Food) Everyone is a twitter over Patti LaBelle’s sweet potato pie, which is the biggest selling dessert this holiday season. I made Patti LaBelle’s pie earlier this week. Then I interviewed her for Yahoo Food. Basically, it’s my best Thanksgiving ever.

300’s Seven Tips for Hosting the Best Thanksgiving Ever

So you’re doing it—-you’re hosting Thanksgiving this year. And doing it without ordering the meal on Seamless. By now, you may have invited a few people over, maybe even sent out an eVite with a date and time and a cartoon of a dancing turkey. But you’re looking around your house, wondering how you’re going to […]

Mr. 300 Sandwiches’ head is about to explode. All of his heroes are in theaters this holiday season: Charlie Brown in “The Peanuts Movie,” James Bond in “Spectre” and Luke Skywalker/ Han Solo/C-3PO in the new “Star Wars,” which the hubby bought opening night tickets for…..the 2 am screening.
