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 […]

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 […]
Mississippi Roast Sliders
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 […]
Sweet Potato and Black Bean Vegan Chili
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 […]
Meat-ish Balls Wrap With Marinara Sauce
One cannot call themselves a vegan — even if temporarily — and not have visited Thug Kitchen. These potty mouthed chefs are like the N.W.A. of vegan cooking. I love a good “f*cking A” in the kitchen as much as the next hungry sailor. And I needed some ideas for dinner. I knew I could find both […]
Mushroom, Pecan and Lentil Vegan Burgers from Food 52
I’m halfway through with this vegan challenge. How have I been surviving? Vegetables and nuts. And delicious recipes like these vegan burgers. I’ve been eating hella avocados straight from the shell, big pots of roasted vegetables over rice or grains, and a lot of Mexican food, which incorporates a lot of vegetables and is surprising […]
“Dinner and Homeland” Easy Turkey Meatball Sandwich
The past week, I’ve been making easy dinners for E and I in an effort to expand my recipe book and avoid eating out. I’ve been pretty successful. There was honey mustard chicken with apple and walnut couscous on Monday. And the other night, a supereasy turkey meatball dinner.
Brisket Sandwiches and Best Friends
It’s slow cooker season at my house. One good reason to bring out the Crock-Pot is to cook for friends.
Five Ingredient Fried Chicken Sandwich
Fried chicken is having a moment. Shake Shack has people clucking after the chain added a deee-licious fried chicken sandwich to its menu. Momofuku just opened a fried chicken shop in the East Village. I would not be surprised of the sale of home fryers was also on the rise. Or, at least, vegetable oil.
Memorial Day Weekend is Here–and You Need Sandwiches
I’m still catching my breath from a whirlwind week that included “GMA”, “Dr. Oz” and a book party. Now I’m focused on the weekend. And what sandwiches to eat during the weekend.

Sandwich #288—“Diet Busting” Patty Melt
I almost killed us both with this one.
Sandwich #273–“Wind Chill Factor” Runzas

Sandwich #267—“Brady Bunch Special” Pork Chop Sandwich with Apple and Onions
Hahaha. Aren’t I clever?
Sandwich #266—“Family Visits” Black Bean Burgers
Forgive me for not posting yesterday, I was a bit busy.
That feeling you get when your quinoa, black bean and beet veggie burgers just won’t stay together and it’s 11 o’clock and you’re too tired to remake them and so you just stick the mixture in the refrigerator and pray that the veggie burger elves that live on the top shelf or some other force […]

E and I had a huge debate about cooking last night.
