It’s been a good three months. It’s been warm. Sunny. Heck, we even had an eclipse. We’ve had plenty of adventures with our little Q. She and I took our first mommy and me plane trip to see my mom in the Midwest. She met her aunt and cousins in Chicago. We went to Turks […]
Yes, it includes overnight oats.
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.
Because it’s so hot outside that we cannot be bothered to sweat on the beach and would rather sit inside in our air conditioned apartment and start packing for our honeymoon, I made homemade lobster rolls. Just as good as the first time I did them.

When you are headed out of town, and you’re hungry, and you get a call from work which requires you to file on deadline before you leave, and you’re getting screamed at by your fiancé to “hurry up”, the only thing suitable enough for this special type of road trip lunch is a frittata sandwich.
After a whole summer of work, ice cream sandwiches are still a work in progress.

I don’t know what the heck was wrong with me yesterday, but it was one of those days where everything was annoying.
When you are running late for your out of town excursion and you will not be satisfied with a bag of Funyuns or a hot dog from the Gulf station on exit 73 again, you need to make a quick snack before you hit the road.
After E and I made our second batch of homemade ricotta, I finally made brunch.
It’s the dog days of summer. And the best time to find juicy, big-as-your-head heirloom tomatoes.
I’ve done five versions of banh mi sandwiches since I started this blog. I guess I really love cilantro or something.
I’m back on the sandwiches. This one was particularly good.
Summer isn’t summer until I’ve eaten at least one peach cobbler.
I’ve eaten so many fried fish sandwiches in the past month, I may have to switch to salads for the rest of the summer.
This is my favorite condiment by far.
[slideshow_deploy id=’6759′] We went to battle. We fought hard. And in the end… we are calling for a rematch.
I have been prepping for the #Sandwar event on Saturday in the Hamptons with Sandwich King Jeff Mauro for a few weeks. Now, it’s crunch time.
I’m prepping to take on the Food Networks’ Sandwich King Jeff Mauro in our first event!
E and I had a huge debate about cooking last night.
Oh, bacon jam at work.
The best laid plans are the ones that are always broken.
