Christmas 1984. Holidays of my youth were filled with tidings and good cheer. And Andes mints and cordial cherries (even though I hated them, I still loved the holiday spirit they represented). And Swiss Miss hot chocolate with the mini marshmallows, even though a packet never yielded enough marshmallows, and I would always add a handful […]

Last Thanksgiving, I didn’t cook one dish. I was in bed, resting and recovering after having Q, only meandering out of bed to eat the beautiful multicourse meal E cooked all by himself for our parents and I. Q lounged in her little Baby Bjorn rocker while we sat around the table, too little to […]
A reflection on holiday traditions. Christmas 1986. Homemade chocolate chip, shortbread, sugar and almond crescent cookies. Andes mints. Cordial cherries. Real Christmas tree. The Temptations version of “Silent Night” and Donnie Hathaway’s version of “This Christmas.” Multiple screenings of “A Charlie Brown Christmas. Mom. Dad. Dogs. Santa. Christmas 2016. Homemade gingerbread, and chocolate chip and […]
Our best sandwich to date arrived a month ago–our daughter, Q (yes, we’re late on the announcement, but we posted about it on our on Instagram feed, didya see?) This baby is the most scrumptious, funniest little being I have ever met. She’s the perfect blend of E and I with a personality that keeps us […]
Super Bowl is not the time for fancy five-course dinners. It’s the perfect event for cheesy dips, big, boozy drinks and of course, sandwiches. Naturally, I have picks for the ultimate Super Bowl sandwiches you need to serve for the big game. And guess what? I won’t be vegan for the Feb. 7 matchup, so I […]
2015 is coming to a close tonight. Boy, what a ride it’s been. E and I got married. I published a book about this whole 300 sandwiches experience, revealing more about myself than I ever thought I would. We traveled the world. We met new friends. We saw old friends grow and enter new phases […]
Christmas Eve, y’all. I’m not concerned with the presents or Santa. I’m concerned about breakfast. Merry merry gingerbread pancakes! E and I are headed up to Vermont for Christmas. As you know, E and I are avid snowboarders, and we’ve been going to Vermont the past couple of winters. The conditions had been pretty good […]
Seems it’s Eggnog Week here at 300. Hey, I’m on a roll here. Yesterday I shared our recipe for holiday eggnog. The only reason E and I didn’t drink the entire vat of it is because we had to hit two holiday parties later than evening in Connecticut, a road trip away from our cozy apartment […]
Prep for Christmas has begun. Tree? Check! A Charlie Brown Christmas Special playing on television? Check! Hot chocolate? Ready! Sugar cookies? Sorta. When E’s mom was here (oh, we had so much fun!), we made our first batch of sugar cookies. She had gifted us a vintage cookie press to make decorative cookies, like this […]
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 […]
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.
What do you do if your wedding falls on a prominent holiday, particularly a somber one?
When you live alone, or are expecting just one or two guests to your cozy home for Thanksgiving dinner, you don’t need to cook an entire turkey.
Oh Peanuts. My favorite.
300 Sandwiches is taking a day to eat someone else’s cooking for a change. We’re enjoying fireworks, bands, swimming and dogs in Bucks County, PA for the day! Tomorrow, we’ll be in the Hamptons for our Sandwar event with Sandwich King Jeff Mauro! Happy birthday, America!
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.
It’s that time again. February 14 is around the corner.
I did what most people do when they want to get a fresh start to the New Year—I slept in until near noon.
Hope you and yours are enjoying love, peace, sandwiches, and each other.
It’s Christmas Eve, and I think it’s a good time to take a break.
Home for the holidays means so many things.
E certainly learned his lesson after sandwich #209.
Sandwiches are more fun to eat at a table with a festive tablescape.
I made E a plate of Thanksgiving leftovers this weekend, including this grilled cheese pictured above. It got me thinking about the concept of making your man a plate.
