This smoked tri tip is fucking amazeballs, so I think we’ve got good odds. I have three kinds of dried beans soaking overnight and two kinds of smoked peppers. Fresh tomatoes instead of canned. I almost made my own tomato paste, but I didn’t have quite that much energy. I’m going to have a lot of fun putting this Read more

A lot of people like Christmas more than Thanksgiving because there are presents. I like Thanksgiving more than Christmas because there are no songs.

I’m still wondering who the hell thought “ah yes, with our company name, let us conjure thoughts of Boston, a city acclaimed more for their pizza than any other place.” Read more

When my family goes on long road trips that take us deep into the South, the Cracker Barrel is usually the only half decent option on the side of the road. if there is an IHOP or Bob Evans we would prefer that, but usually the choices are McDonalds, Waffle House (hard pass, we never eat there), or Cracker Barrel.

I had relatives visit from Ontario and they specifically requested that we go to Cracker Barrel. And not only that, but they fucking loved it. We spent another hour in the “gift shop” while they gleefully examined every tchotchke in the store.

My children (born and bred New Yorkers) absolutely adore Cracker Barrel. It’s the highlight of every road trip.

I also HATE snow/winter. Lifelong midwesterner. And I am one of the seemingly few people who do not own an SUV or truck, so driving in winter weather always seems extra treacherous to me.

Yes, I’m in New York too. I remember that— I think there were kids stuck on school buses for hours. I missed the worst effects of it; I was only commuting two days a week then so luckily I was home and my kids’ school is only a few blocks away. I feel like the city’s response to snow has gotten so erratic over the Read more

I really like Katz’s but it is almost always too crowded and you should always go at off times. The Carnegie was not as good and definitely overpriced. I did like that the pictured sandwich has corned beef and pastrami. At Katz’s, I always get pastrami.

To be fair to you (and me, I hate it too), I think you are downplaying the difficulties of navigating the city in snow. Street corners either become impenetrable mountains of snow or lakes of melting grey sludge. Sheets of ice where whomever is responsible hasn’t bothered to clear a path. Slippery subway stairs.

In a way, all food photography annoys me ever since I learned (maybe 15 years ago) that so may photo sessions rely on distinctly non-food substances to make dishes look mouth-watering. If you have ever worked in the food industry, you know that fresh, off the skillet (or out of the oven, etc.) isn’t going to look very Read more

The unfortunately named Woody Allen at the old Carnegie Deli was quite stacked. Good sandwich, bad man.
