This weekend was a chilly one. But turkey chili, and snuggling with our playful baby girl, kept us warm. Temperature wise, it was nose-numbing cold outside. E and I only left the house (separately) to go to the gym and get groceries, but it was too cold to take little Q anywhere with us. Poor […]

Mississippi Roast Sliders
I am late to the game on the Mississippi Roast recipe. But I’m so thankful I found it. My life is profoundly better having this in my belly. Mississippi Roast was created by a Southern gal named Robin Chapman, who has made it for family and friends for years. It was published in a local […]
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.

“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 […]

300’s Lunchbox Worthy Back to School Sandwiches
My nephews headed back to school this week, as many other kids have done or are prepping to in the coming weeks. For me, it brings back memories of new clothes, Trapper Keepers, and lunchboxes stuffed with mom’s homemade sandwiches.
Five Ingredient Fried Chicken Sandwich
Fried chicken is having a moment. Shake Shack has people clucking after the chain added a deee-licious fried chicken sandwich to its menu. Momofuku just opened a fried chicken shop in the East Village. I would not be surprised of the sale of home fryers was also on the rise. Or, at least, vegetable oil.
Lobster Roll, Take 376
Because it’s so hot outside that we cannot be bothered to sweat on the beach and would rather sit inside in our air conditioned apartment and start packing for our honeymoon, I made homemade lobster rolls. Just as good as the first time I did them.
The BLP—Bacon, Lettuce and Peach Sandwich
This is what you need to do with your ripe peaches this week: Make BLPs.
Other People’s Sandwiches: Shake Shack Chicken Shack
As soon as I read the news Shake Shack was launching fried chicken sandwiches, I made a pivotal decision. Lunch would be in Brooklyn.
Memorial Day Weekend is Here–and You Need Sandwiches
I’m still catching my breath from a whirlwind week that included “GMA”, “Dr. Oz” and a book party. Now I’m focused on the weekend. And what sandwiches to eat during the weekend.

Sandwich #285–“Before The Fight” Chicken Waldorf Salad Sandwich
E and I were lucky enough to go to the Wladimir Klitschko/ Bryant Jennings fight on Saturday night at MSG. But before the fight, we had snacks.

Mmmm beet hummus. With roasted sweet peppers.
Sandwich #281–“National Holiday” Pepperoni Pizza Grilled Cheese Sandwich
It’s National Grilled Cheese Day! And we had to celebrate. I’ve drooled over this sandwich for months, and finally found good reason to make it—pepperoni pizza grilled cheese.

You know you’ve really compromised for your man when you can tolerate runny egg yolk AND hollandaise on the same sandwich.
Sandwich #279–“Egg-Celent” Deviled Egg Banh Mi
You must have plenty of eggs lying around your house after Easter.
