When E and I were in the Dominican Republic last month, we did our fair share of island-inspired cooking. We whipped up shrimp curry a few times, paella with spiny lobster (which you could find down there simply by swimming out a few yards from shore), and pasta with fresh local vegetables. Our favorite dish was a […]

What Super Bowl Sunday Means to Me
Today is Super Bowl Sunday. I’m not particularly attached to either team playing, and frankly I haven’t been paying attention to much of football this season because I was otherwise occupied with pregnancy, birth and baby. But this Sunday reminds me of a special bond I had with my own father over football. My dad, […]
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 […]
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 […]
“Dinner and Homeland” Easy Turkey Meatball Sandwich
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.
Brisket Sandwiches and Best Friends
It’s slow cooker season at my house. One good reason to bring out the Crock-Pot is to cook for friends.
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.
Sandwich #290–“Dumpster Diving” Black Bean Burgers with Re-foraged Ramp Pesto
What do you call ramps that you have dug out of the trash because you accidentally threw away the good parts? Re-foraged ramps!
Sandwich #273–“Wind Chill Factor” Runzas
Runzas. Apropos for cold weather nights in front of the television, I baked these meat and cheese packed meat pockets for dinner the other night.
Super Bowl Sandwich Picks: Chicken Parmesan Sandwich
It’s Super Bowl season, y’all! Did you guys catch the games this weekend? I mean……

Sandwich #266—“Family Visits” Black Bean Burgers
Forgive me for not posting yesterday, I was a bit busy.
Fashion Weak is Over
The condition of lethargy, bitterness, and exhaustion from going to fashion shows and parties is commonly described as Fashion Weak. That was me this week. Hence the lack of posting.
Sandwich #261–“Cook Like a Man” Beer Battered Mahi Mahi Sandwiches
E and I had a huge debate about cooking last night.

The best laid plans are the ones that are always broken.

Sandwich #204–“Late Night Craving” Goat Cheese, Walnut and Honey Grilled Cheese
Well yesterday was fun!
Sandwich #199—“Saturday Nights in Your Thirties” Roast Chicken and Waffle BLT
Saturday nights used to be for dinners out and club hopping. But I do enough of that during the week for my day job at The New York Post. Now—nesting with my boyfriend in my mid-30s—Saturday nights are for roasting chicken.
Sandwich #194–“Hold the Greens” Three Cheese Grilled Cheese with Walnuts and Honey
I had a post a few weeks ago about why one should not order the plain white sandwich. Unless you’re E, and your girlfriend is making grilled cheese sandwiches with sauteed brussels sprouts and you despise the green veggies.
