Love must be in the air. First George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin. Then E and I. And then, Claire and Craig.

Sandwich #255–“At Home Snack” Fried Banana Strawberry Shortcake Sandwiches
I spent the weekend with my parents, particular my mother, in the Midwest for Mother’s Day.
Sandwich #246–“Cookies and Cosmos” Brown Sugar Cookies with Chocolate Filling
Are you watching “Cosmos”? If not, you should.
Sandwich #245–“Sugar Rush” French Toast Peanut Butter and Jelly
Today is National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day. Of course, I had to take that to an extreme.
Sandwich #242–“Sweet Morning” Arepas with Caramelized Plantains and Blackberries
Confirmed: sweet arepas are as good as savory ones.
Sandwich #233–“Waffles of Insane Greatness” Banana, Raspberry and Nutella Waffle Sandwiches
The first time I used my waffle machine, I made an insanely great sweet treat for my sweet.
Sandwich #226–“The Magic Number” Pink Sugar Cookies Sandwiches
E has figured out when he’s going to propose.
Sandwich #225–“The Aphrodisiac” Strawberry, Fig Jam, Ricotta and Orange Sandwich
Being we’re a few days from Valentine’s Day, I wanted something to get E and I in the mood.
300 Sandwiches’ Homemade Granola Bars
I’m really in a great mood, and have been all week.
Christmas Eve Wish: To NOT Make a Sandwich
It’s Christmas Eve, and I think it’s a good time to take a break.
Sandwich #211–“Holiday Misadventures” Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Sandwiches
Home for the holidays means so many things.
Sandwich #191–“Don’t Judge Me on My Bathroom” Pumpkin Whoopie Pies with Bourbon Creme Filling
In honor of our appearance on the Rachael Ray show today, I made her version of pumpkin whoopie pies
Sandwich #190–“It’s A Boy” Chocolate Whoopie Pies with Cream Cheese Filling
This weekend was super exciting for us. E and I went to see two of our dearest friends, Jenny and Otto, and meet their new baby, Arlo.
Sandwich #162–“When the Cat’s Away” Blondie Ice Cream Sandwiches
E had to leave town this weekend to tend to family business. I stayed behind because I had to tend to work—which meant covering the MTV Video Music Awards at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn and going out to a bevy of after parties.
Sandwich #150–“Halfway There” Oatmeal Cookie Ice Cream Sandwich
I’m halfway there! In the immortal words of Drake, I say, “we started from the bottom now we’re here.”
Sandwich #146–“Break for You” Ice Cream Sandwich
Ice cream sandwiches—using pre-made cookies and simple vanilla ice cream—were the fastest, easiest snack I could think of for E.
Sandwich #141—“CrossFit Unfriendly” Sugar and Spice Ice Cream Sandwich
Ice cream sandwiches are not a Breakfast of Champions. They’re filled with sugar and offer little caffeine or protein or other nutrients (maybe dairy. But that’s really all). They’re so not the ideal breakfast for a boyfriend who just came back from CrossFit.
Sandwich #135–“Quickie Before Dinner” Mini Pretzel Ice Cream Sandwich
There’s nothing better than a nap in the middle of the day on the weekend. On a crisp, warm Saturday in New York, E and were holed up inside, dozing off on the couch. And not even together, cuddled up at the same time. We took naps in shifts.
Sandwich #21–“Up All Night” Homemade S’mores
I really should not be allowed to eat sugar past 9 PM. When I do, I turn into a Gremlin (readers over 30 will remember what Gremlins are. Those under 30, Google it). In the 1984 movie “Gremlins,” these adorable pets named mogwais are in the care of humans. But along with no sunlight and […]
Sandwich #11– “Welcome Home–Made” Ice Cream Sandwiches
E and I went our separate ways this weekend. Though both of our parents live in Michigan, they live 3 hours away from each other on opposite sides of the state. Since we only had the two day weekend off from work, E and I visited our respective families separately this time. Funny thing is […]
Sandwich #2–“Thirty Second” Blackberry Ginger Ice Cream Sandwich
E is particular about his ice cream. Plain vanilla won’t do, and he’s more partial to fruit than chocolate. I on the other hand am “coo-coo for Cocoa Puffs” crazy for chocolate. And pecans. And mint. All together! But this isn’t about me!
