'Wich, Please

Kickstarting Our Food Truck, Part 6: Straight TCB’in It

It’s been another exciting month, with lots of dramatic, high-tension twists and turns, and at least three high-speed pursuits, and by “high-speed pursuits” I mean “long city council meetings.” As we get closer and closer to realizing our food truck dreams here in Rockland, Maine, I wanted to update you on a few exciting developments….

Mrs. Fields Copycat Sea Salt and Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies

When I was growing up, there was no place else for a girl my age to dazzle her jealous peers with the latest in parachute pant and slap bracelet technology quite like the Maine Mall, thanks to the existence of four different stores. The “Pet Menagerie” was always one of the first stops. As soon…

Roasted Tomatillo Chicken Enchilada Casserole

Tomatillo Green Chile Chicken Enchilada Casserole PLUS GIVEAWAY!

As anyone who follows along with our exploits on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram knows, I recently made the long, lonely cross-country drive from sunny, smoggy Burbank, California to the seemingly eternal permafrost of Rockland, Maine. It’s about  3,200 miles, and I made the trip by myself in about five days. Unlike our family trip west…

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

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…

8 Small Plates for Your Superbowl Party

Watching the Superbowl presents a unique opportunity to watch two seasoned, strategic Generals sending their soldiers into a symbolic gridiron battle, where each army must defend his home territory from hordes of massive 350 pound invaders, a battle whose outcome is determined not just by the strength of the individual players, but by the size…

Beer and Cheddar Dip with Bacon

We have a new couch. It is the first piece of furniture that we own that wasn’t given to us or found on Craigslist. I can’t believe we ever bought a couch on Craigslist and I am even more surprised that we weren’t murdered when we went to pick it up. Last week, I had…

7 Layer DIp Burger

“Seven Layer Dip” Burgers

Here’s the thing. I’m not normally one to go for these kinds of “impossible” burgers. Y’know, the kind of cheeseburger that’s so intent on piling every single thing in the cupboard on top of a forlorn, forgotten beef patty, that the top bun stand precariously balanced atop an 18 inch sloppy pile of lettuce, tomato,…
