Pumpkin Bourbon Pie

Last Thanksgiving, I didn’t cook one dish. I was in bed, resting and recovering after having Q, only meandering out of bed to eat the beautiful multicourse meal E cooked all by himself for our parents and I. Q lounged in her little Baby Bjorn rocker while we sat around the table, too little to […]

New and Old Holiday Traditions

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 […]

Season Greetings and Expanding Families

Our best sandwich to date arrived a month ago–our daughter, Q (yes, we’re late on the announcement, but we posted about it on our on Instagram feed, didya see?) This baby is the most scrumptious, funniest little being I have ever met. She’s the perfect blend of E and I with a personality that keeps us […]

The Ultimate Super Bowl Sandwich Picks

Super Bowl is not the time for fancy five-course dinners. It’s the perfect event for cheesy dips, big, boozy drinks and of course, sandwiches. Naturally, I have picks for the ultimate Super Bowl sandwiches you need to serve for the big game. And guess what? I won’t be vegan for the Feb. 7 matchup, so I […]

To A Fabulous 2015…

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 Morning Gingerbread Pancakes

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 […]

Eggnog Waffles For Your Holiday Brunch

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 […]

Christmastime Is Here

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 […]

Christmas Down South

E and I have headed south for the holiday. This is the first time I’ve been warm for Christmas, warm enough that even Frosty the Snowman here can get a tan. I believe this is the beginning of a new tradition for me. Post will be intermittent, but wanted to say Happy Holidays to all […]

Happy Fourth of July!

300 Sandwiches is taking a day to eat someone else’s cooking for a change. We’re enjoying fireworks, bands, swimming and dogs in Bucks County, PA for the day! Tomorrow, we’ll be in the Hamptons for our Sandwar event with Sandwich King Jeff Mauro! Happy birthday, America!

Four Sandwiches for Houseguests

E went away on vacation with his best friend for two weeks, celebrating Cinco de Mayo with tequila under a palm tree. The second he left, I got three instant houseguests.

Five Things I’m Thankful For

—that my man had already put our 22 pound turkey in the brine AND prepared pumpkin creme brulee before I got home from a full day of work today! —that we aren’t traveling for Thanksgiving in the middle of the crazy Noreaster slamming the East Coast. —that we have a full house coming for dinner […]
