This is what you need to make in the morning of Thanksgiving, when you somehow have digested all of the food from the night before but you are STILL STARVING! One cannot subsist on Patti Labelle’s sweet potato pie alone. Not even if your name is James Wright and you sing like a bird. I […]

You want a good reason to use the rest of your cheese plate for a sandwich? Here’s something creamy, cheesy and perfect for a post-Thanksgiving brunch: Thanksgiving leftovers croque tartiflette.
We’re a week away from Thanksgiving. And while I’ve given advice on how to plan your ideal holiday, I admit, I’m a little behind.
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.
My nephews headed back to school this week, as many other kids have done or are prepping to in the coming weeks. For me, it brings back memories of new clothes, Trapper Keepers, and lunchboxes stuffed with mom’s homemade sandwiches.
I held out until the end to make the ultimate stacked sandwich—the Dagwood.
I almost killed us both with this one.
Three more days until a four day weekend and eating until we pass out on the closest available flat surface. Bring. it. on.
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.
FAIL: I accidentally put the wrong date on our Thanksgiving dinner invitations. I had people saying they couldn’t come for dinner yesterday, when I meant to invite them over in two weeks. SUCCESS: Ordered our turkey from this place already! Gobble gobble!
E and I have become obsessed with our homemade apple butter. We are finding ways to put in on everything.
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.
I thought I knew a little bit about life. Until I learned about this.
I recently heard from legendary chef Daniel Boulud and Jason Pringle, the executive chef at Boulud’s DB Bistro Moderne in Miami about what they make with their Thanksgiving leftovers.
E and I have plenty to do in the week before Thanksgiving.
Not all of the sandwiches I make are winners.
Oh no he didn’t!
I’ve been trying to figure out how to make a club sandwich that E would like.
We were majorly hung over. Two nights ago, we went out with well-intentioned but highly demanding friends who grilled E about the whole wedding thing. “When are you going to get married? What are you waiting for? This sandwich thing is for the birds! I’ll make you three hundred sandwiches in my kitchen this weekend! […]
I’m training for the Brooklyn Half Marathon, and this morning I did one of my longer runs. Afterwards, I prepared a protein heavy large breakfast, to keep up my strength. And my sanity. When I don’t eat, I’m intolerable.
Sometimes—such as yesterday— E thinks I make him look childish. After my recap of E refusing to eat store bought smoked salmon, in favor of the fresh, pastrami–flavored fish from Russ & Daughters, E told me. “You portray me as a tantrum-having child sometimes.”
Rating: E and I just got back from Miami, a super amazing trip full of dancing, eating, pool parties, beach time and Champagne. Between all of that, somehow we missed hitting up THIS amazing find while we were there! I blame traffic! I blame the uber alluring pool at the Delano Hotel! I blame everyone […]
Rating: E deserved a break from taking care of me all week. Poor thing hadn’t seen his friends, hadn’t gone out to dinner or drinks since I came down with the flu. Since I was back to work, E wanted to reclaim his social life. “I’m having Scotch tonight!” he declared.
