It’s been a good three months. It’s been warm. Sunny. Heck, we even had an eclipse. We’ve had plenty of adventures with our little Q. She and I took our first mommy and me plane trip to see my mom in the Midwest. She met her aunt and cousins in Chicago. We went to Turks […]

The 300 Summer Survival Kit
Yes, it includes overnight oats.
How to Get a Passport for a Baby
The first thing E wanted to get Q once she was born was not a Mamaroo rocker or designer clothes. It was a passport. The gift of travel is the best thing you can give a person of any age. For a baby, it’s even more special. Little ones are never too little to start learning […]
The Jerkiest of Jerk Chicken
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 […]
Things I Learned While Traveling with a Newborn, Part 3
We made it. Four weeks in the Caribbean. I never thought I’d say this, but I’m sad to leave. (GASP! SHOCK! “Didn’t you make me switch flights back three weeks ago?!” says husband.) Overall, traveling with a newborn was easier than I teed it up for. The baby loved her time by the beach—she went in the […]
Things I Learned While Traveling With a Newborn, Part 2
Somehow, we survived week one of our first vacation traveling with a newborn without hurting the baby, or ourselves. We arrived in the Dominican Republic with baby and bags, and set up camp quickly after a massive shopping trip at La Sirena (their local super store, like Wal-Mart). But our marriage was tested like never before under the […]
Things I Learned While Traveling With a Newborn, Part 1
Just a few weeks into parenthood, E wanted to take Q and I on a trip so we could spend a month of unobstructed quality family time together. Many thought we were crazy to take our little one out of the country before my maternity leave was up. “She’s so small!” “What about her ears […]
Tips on Traveling While Pregnant
Pregnancy did not keep me from traveling wherever I wanted. My last trip while pregnant was to San Francisco around Labor Day. At 31 weeks pregnant, and 9 weeks away from my due date, my doctor said I was good to go for the flight, but the cutoff for air travel was generally 32 weeks […]
Leaves Are Changing. Time for Fall Road Trips.
New York’s fall foliage is in full bloom. So E and I took a little road trip up the Hudson this weekend.
Sandwiches Will Be Easier to Make With These Aritsugu Knives
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.

Two months into marriage, and we’re taking a break. We’re going on our honeymoon in a few short weeks!
Throwback Thursday: Pirates of the Caribbean
It was just a few days ago that E and I were eating lobster for two with a side of grilled potato, rice and a bottle of rose on a remote island in the Caribbean.

Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder
I’ve been gone for a minute….but I’m back.
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 […]
Country Weekend Done Right!
This weekend was a bunch of country fall fun!
Sandwich #264–“Deadlines and Day Trips” Egg Frittata Sandwiches
When you are headed out of town, and you’re hungry, and you get a call from work which requires you to file on deadline before you leave, and you’re getting screamed at by your fiancé to “hurry up”, the only thing suitable enough for this special type of road trip lunch is a frittata sandwich.
I didn’t cook this morning because E and I spent two hours talking about our honeymoon.
I’m throwing it back to last weekend to sound off on the worst sandwich I’ve ever paid money for.
It’s about time we started wedding planning! Welcome to Wedding Wednesday!
Reunited and It Feels So Good….
I”m finally reunited with E, aka, Mr. 300 Sandwiches, in Barbados!
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.

Woman Vs. Sandwich at La Sandwicherie
I go to Miami around twice a year to see friends. Each time I go, they always rave about how I need to go to “the sandwich place.”
