Six years ago… I was living in a basement floor studio on the Upper East Side. E lived in the East Village in a well-lit third floor studio. I was single and had several bad breakups in a row. So had E. I had hair that was 6 inches longer. So did E. I spent […]
A reflection on holiday traditions. Christmas 1986. Homemade chocolate chip, shortbread, sugar and almond crescent cookies. Andes mints. Cordial cherries. Real Christmas tree. The Temptations version of “Silent Night” and Donnie Hathaway’s version of “This Christmas.” Multiple screenings of “A Charlie Brown Christmas. Mom. Dad. Dogs. Santa. Christmas 2016. Homemade gingerbread, and chocolate chip and […]
Me last night.
New York’s fall foliage is in full bloom. So E and I took a little road trip up the Hudson this weekend.
Writing thank you notes are like moving into a new apartment.
And we’re back. Three weeks and an around the world flight later, E and I made it home. I’m still fighting killer jet lag and unpacking.
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.
Big changes ahead, my friends! Making those 300 sandwiches (and bread. And condiments. And peach cobblers. And marshmallows.) has earned me an amazing new job! Yours truly has signed on to become a senior editor at Yahoo Food!
#tbt to that day we got this lucky check at Pearl Oyster Bar, where we ordered two lobster rolls and a few glasses of Rose. Should played the lottery that day, too.
Two months into marriage, and we’re taking a break. We’re going on our honeymoon in a few short weeks!
Hi there! Sorry for the lack of posting over the time of our mini book tour. We were doing some crazy running around, and then we also had some slight technical difficulties with the site. All is well now. So, what have ya missed? Well, we did some really great book signings in New York, […]
E and I added personal touches to our small wedding for 35 guests. One of them, after much debate, was our welcome bags.
E and I are packing up for our wedding, but wanted to give a quick thank you to all of the media outlets, bloggers, fans and friends who have given love to our book “300 Sandwiches: A Multilayered Love Story, with Recipes.” E and I are truly touched by your support. Bon Appetit, one of […]
A week from today, E and I and my mother and a few friends will be on a Jet Blue flight to Barbados for our “elopement light” style wedding. Above, a shot from our wedding band shopping excursion this weekend, which was way too late to start the process. We may not have our wedding […]
Remember that photo shoot I mentioned earlier? I wrote about the 300’s forthcoming book, our wedding, and five sandwiches that defined our relationship in The New York Post today. Check it out!
Wedding gift bags. Oh, the fence that divides E and I on this wedding.
The weekend is here!
I should have just asked a local before posting that I couldn’t find roti on Union Island. Particularly the local that ran our kite surf center.
Greetings from Union Island!
E and I are going on a short trip to the Caribbean this week. To celebrate, we explore a sandwich native to where we’re headed: ROTI, yo!
These just came in from my publisher: early copies of “300 Sandwiches: A Multilayered Love Story… With Recipes”.
I did it. I finally overtook E in the 300 macaron bake off. I perfected the art of the macaron.
E and I are working on perfecting our macaron game. Batch #3, green tea flavored. Still figuring out how to eliminate “nipples” and prevent skins from cracking. We will not be defeated.
I made sandwich #227, heart-shaped brownie sandwiches with Ricotta cream cheese filling last year for E for Valentine’s Day. This year, I’ve got some other treats in mind.
