Sandwich #104—“The Gang’s All Here” S’Mores

The regular season at Stowe, VT ended this weekend, so E and I and four friends caravaned up north to take one last snowboarding trip. The weather was spectacular, the snow was amazing and our skills had all improved so much since the beginning of the season—by Sunday, most of us were shredding in the […]

Sandwich #60–“Sugar Crack” Candy Cane Sugar Cookie Sandwiches

Rating: Remember I said I’m not allowed to eat sugar past 9 PM, for I turn into a hyped-up Gremlin and end up dancing and jumping around the apartment until well past E’s bedtime? Well, imagine how nutty I’ve become during the holiday season. I have eaten cookies for every meal during the twelve days […]

Sandwich #59–“Holiday Party” Gingerbread Cookie Sandwiches

Rating: A holiday party in our house has a few requirements. Booze. Good food. Carefully curated guest list. A music playlist to shake your groove thang to. And a specific dress code. E and I hosted our First Annual Holiday Pajama Party, where the dress code required the same sleeping attire you wear at home […]

Sandwich #57–“Road Trip” S’mores

E and I took a road trip up to Killington, VT this weekend for some snowboarding. Finally, we got to do a sport that I was actually skilled in. I have been snowboarding for about eight years and can master my fair share of black diamonds. I’ve even weaseled my way out of some hairy […]

Sandwich #50–“Table Dressing” Homemade Oreos

Our Thanksgiving is turning into one expensive holiday. It might have been cheaper to fly home to Michigan than it would have been to buy food and decor for 8…. wait a minute, E just texted me….now 11 people. We have so much to do! So many groceries to buy! How were we going to […]

Sandwich #40–“Out of Depression” Apple and Brandy Whoopie Pies

Okay, I hadn’t planned on a whoopie pie follow-up so soon. But I was in a horrid mood after a tough day at work–think PMS times two with a sprinkle of “I hate everybody.” I came home expecting to have a quick dinner and then take yet another work meeting over drinks, but my mood […]

Sandwich #39–“Whoopie Virgin” Pumpkin Whoopie Pies

Oh. HELL. Yes. I have been waiting to make these since Labor Day. I’ve been drooling over pictures on the Web of pumpkin whoopie pies, with that spongy cake on the outside and soft creamy middle. Nom nom nom! And now, the perfect time to make them as a dessert to a perfect fall meal […]

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 […]
