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 […]
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 […]
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 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 […]
‘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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
You want a good reason to use the rest of your cheese plate for a sandwich? Here’s something creamy, cheesy and perfect for a post-Thanksgiving brunch: Thanksgiving leftovers croque tartiflette.
(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.
We’re a week away from Thanksgiving. And while I’ve given advice on how to plan your ideal holiday, I admit, I’m a little behind.
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.
Our Thanksgiving countdown has begun! We’ve sent out invitations, started stocking up on the booze and started testing recipes.
Today is a holiday worth a day off of work and some fireworks around these parts: it’s National Sandwich Day!
Days are shorter. Mornings are colder. Leaves are changing color and scattered on the ground. It’s fall, y’all. In case you haven’t noticed.
The past week, I’ve been making easy dinners for E and I in an effort to expand my recipe book and avoid eating out. I’ve been pretty successful. There was honey mustard chicken with apple and walnut couscous on Monday. And the other night, a supereasy turkey meatball dinner.
It’s slow cooker season at my house. One good reason to bring out the Crock-Pot is to cook for friends.
I’ve been thinking more about what goes into my body lately.
I took this photo of the Freedom Tower and Brooklyn Bridge last weekend while watching the supermoon. With Hurricane Joaquin supposedly headed this way, we may not see this clear of a nighttime view for a while.
It’s one of my favorite national holidays. National Coffee Day!
We are approaching October. Pumpkin Spice Lattes have been on sale at Starbucks for weeks. As have pumpkin-flavored Mini-Wheats and Twinkies and donuts and a whole bunch of other artificially made foods that have no business being pumpkin-flavored (you know there are pumpkin pie Pop-Tarts? News to me!) Yet I realized that I had not […]
