Two Years

“Dearly beloved, we have gathered here to get through this thing called life.” 6/6/15

Thoughts on Mother’s Day

…on my first Mother’s Day. I’m excited! I’m excited to wake up early and squeeze my baby and husband and eat pancakes and drink mimosas for breakfast and dance around the house in my pajamas… and then climb back into bed and sleep the rest of the day. Because the only thing a new mom, […]

New Year’s Eve Reflection and Reset

New Year’s Eve is a time for reflection. Last year was a hot mess on a macro level for so many reasons—the election, the escalating rate of African-Americans killed by police and the ensuing backlash, global terrorist attacks, the loss of so many great Hollywood and music icons. But in my own world, things weren’t that […]

Valentine’s Day Heart-Shaped Hand Pies

Here we go. Another Valentine’s Day. But this year, it’s with my HUSBAND. That should mean something, right? That should mean that we should go all out, right? Book a dinner reservation at that overpriced restaurant with the snooty maitre’d and the methuselah of Cristal on the menu and eat mediocre overrpiced surf-and-turf and roll […]

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 […]

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 […]

Nine Best Sandwiches For The Movies This Holiday Season

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.

It’s National Sandwich Day!

Today is a holiday worth a day off of work and some fireworks around these parts: it’s National Sandwich Day!

Christmas Snacking Snickerdoodles

I finally embarked on holiday activities. Shopping. Making holiday travel arrangements. Sipping on holiday themed cocktails. Martinis have olives in them. Olives are green. Green says Christmas. So, deck them halls.

Thanksgiving Tablescape Inspiration

I’m going to set up my Thanksgiving tablescape this weekend. I’m obsessed with painted gourds for some reason, and want to incorporate black and gold shellacked pumpkins on my table to give dinner some shine. Metallic paint will also sparkle against candelight, too. I’m going to find some black and gold spray paint and some […]

Highs and Lows of Thanksgiving Planning

FAIL: I accidentally put the wrong date on our Thanksgiving dinner invitations. I had people saying they couldn’t come for dinner yesterday, when I meant to invite them over in two weeks. SUCCESS: Ordered our turkey from this place already! Gobble gobble!
