The Sandwich Surprise: With Thanksgiving just days away, I had a special dessert on the brain: Sans Rival Sandwich Bites.

Spicy Pickles & Pork Sammy

The Sandwich Surprise: Fall is a terrific time for Spicy Pickles & Pork on a Sesame Basil Roll. The Inspiration: I love pickles (especially hot, sour ones) and anything involving vinegar and fermentation, so I declared it the theme for this month’s Let’s Lunch. (Check out everyone’s briny dill-ights here.) Also, Le Bernardin’s bread basket includes […]

September = Apple Pie Sandwich Time

Pies are love. And I looove pies. So much so that the boy I was dating in 1995 promised me a “life of pie” and I practically married him on the spot. Okay, not really, no rings were ever exchanged. But while the boyfriend didn’t last, his vow did. My world has been packed with […]

The Tot Head: A Simple Sandwich For The Munchies

You don’t have to be high to get the munchies (though it makes watching Bram Stoker’s Dracula a lot more fun; don’t ask how I know this), which is why it’s the July theme for Let’s Lunch*. That, and because fellow Let’s Luncher Cheryl Tan has a short story in the new Akashic Books anthology, […]
