Fresh Guacamole with Tomatillos and Goat Cheese

Fresh Guacamole with Tomatillos and Goat Cheese

It’s time to confess something that I am ashamed to admit: I am a picky eater. I always have been. I cringe when certain food touches on my plate. (I am obsessed with segmented plates.

Blueberry Clementine-Soaked Cake with Blood Orange Bitters

It’s been a very snowy few weeks since we’ve been back in New England. We’re snug in our cozy house that has been renovated with knotty pine floors, white subway tile in the kitchen, and rough beams throughout the downstairs. We’re happy to be reunited with our farm table, baked bean pot, blueberry rake, Eleanor the doe-eyed…

Sandwich Bros. of Wisconsin Chicken Melt

America! Presents: Sandwich Bros. of Wisconsin Chicken Melt

There aren’t a ton of ways to use “lunchtime” as a way to express your feelings of postmodern malaise and nagging ennui.

8 Romantic Dishes to Cook at Home for Your Valentine

We can already hear the protests from the more cynical among you. Valentine’s Day is a big hoodwink, you’ll say, a made-up holiday created by the greeting card companies to sell more pink teddy bears and chalky heart-shaped boxes of chocolate. Like New Year’s Eve, you’ll explain, the buildup can never live up to the…

Kickstarting Our Food Truck, Part 4: The Work Begins

It’s been a few months since the successful funding on Kickstarter of the ‘Wich, Please truck. As you may recall, we managed to raise just shy of $30,000 in one month (making our campaign the seventh most-funded food truck in Kickstarter history), in order to launch a new sandwich empire in the small town of…

When moving into a brand new house in Rockland, Maine in the middle of the winter, during a week where a snowstorm literally every other day means a fresh new foot of sticky wet snow blocking the front of the storage unit you’re trying to frantically unpack on the few clear days you have so…
