This is my favorite season of the year. From Halloween through New Years, I go hard. I do all of the things. Eat of all the things. Go HAM with decorations. Keep Vince Guaraldi’s “A Charlie Brown Christmas Album” on repeat. It’s my high season. High on life. High on peppermint mochas. High on it […]

Now that I have a baby, I miss my mom more than ever. Chicken cacciatore soup helps bring back great memories of mom and me. My mom and I are extremely close. She’s caring, loving, funny and protective. She taught me to be strong but cautious, to love your family and friends but always put […]
This weekend was a chilly one. But turkey chili, and snuggling with our playful baby girl, kept us warm. Temperature wise, it was nose-numbing cold outside. E and I only left the house (separately) to go to the gym and get groceries, but it was too cold to take little Q anywhere with us. Poor […]
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 […]
Nom nom nom vegan chili. A blizzard is the perfect reason to dig out the big ‘ol Dutch oven or Crock-Pot and make something savory that will feed your family for days. You need something that will free up your busy hours indoors so you have time left to binge watch “House of Cards,” or […]
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.
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.
Fine, the Patriots won. Congrats. Guess now would be a good time to discuss one of my last trips to Pats Nation. When E and I were in Vermont the other weekend, our friend/devoted reader Charlene T. suggested we stop off at Donut Dip in Springfield, MA.
[slideshow_deploy id=’8066′]Super Bowl Sunday is upon us! And you know what that means….Super Bowl Sandwiches!
It’s Super Bowl season, y’all! Did you guys catch the games this weekend? I mean……
Sundays are made for football. For brunch. For flannel. For cuddling with your fiancé. For not washing your hair.
I was lucky enough to have lunch with Jean-Georges Vongerichten the other day for a boozy holiday celebration sponsored by Bon Appetit. Yes I get around.
Confirmed: sweet arepas are as good as savory ones.
Dinner guests force you to up your kitchen game.
What does your ideal day look like?
When one spends the weekend in Vermont, one returns with maple syrup.
E and I have a bit of cabin fever.
After all of the debate, I ended up staying home on Super Bowl Sunday.
Last night’s dinner was the easiest Sunday night dinner E and I have ever managed.
I’m a woman of my word. As promised, I remade the shrimp po’ boy all by myself.
E and I had a few friends over for the big games on Sunday.
Rating: E is obsessed with Japan.
It’s cold. Everywhere. Particularly INSIDE OUR APARTMENT.
When it’s snowing and cold outside, and I have extra apples and cognac around from our holiday-stocked pantry inside, there’s only one thing to do.
