Sandwich It In

Whether it’s just a quick bite on the go or a carefully constructed masterpiece, one thing is clear: we love our sandwiches in America. Sandwiches are just as much a part of the fabric of American cuisine as pasta is to Italian food. Sure, the name might change as you move around the country, but as long as you layer bread with delicious toppings, it’s a sandwich…

Gingerbread Cookies

Homemade White Holiday Eggnog
Holiday Eggnog Recipes

There are two kinds of people: those who love eggnog and those who loathe it. I was a loather. Having only had the kind from the supermarket, I found it gluey, overly sweet, and artificially flavored. The unscientific poll that I ran on social media showed that a majority like eggnog, but few have ever had it homemade. I decided to try making it from scratch to see if it was palatable…

Come to the Table and Give Thanks

You don’t think much about a dinner table when it sits there unoccupied and unused. It is just furniture. Something you need to dust, from time to time, and to move when you have to vacuum. It can be a handy place for putting packages. It helps if the table is well made or old or somehow distinguished. But it is still just a table and, somehow, lifeless. But in the last months of the calendar year, the dining room table comes into its own, especially in New England…
