Stephanie Smith and Eric Schulte — best known as the “300 Sandwiches” blogger and her boyfriend, Poor Man’s Alexander Skarsgaard — are engaged … but it only took 257 sandwiches for him to put a ring on it. Smith and Schulte gained notoriety last September, when Smith began her quest for a book deal, I mean her blog, detailing her boyfriend’s (joking!) promise to propose if she made him 300 sandwiches. The blog featured recipes for, yes, each of the sandwiches she was making him on that romantic journey, garnering Smith and Schulte quite a bit of positive and negative attention. Smith got her book deal, but it came with a good amount of scorn from the internet, including The Frisky, for the inherent retro sexism of their bargain. Earlier today, Smith posted on her blog that Schulte had proposed and she had said yes. (And then he said, “Now get back in the kitchen and make me my 258th sandwich!” Just kidding.) Keep reading »

Like Joey Tribiani (from “Friends,” duh), I’ve never met a sandwich I didn’t want to say “How you doin’?” to. I also have a thing for food porn, so the cooking/coffee table book Scanwiches is making my stomach grumble. Full of mouth-watering images of cut-open sandwich insides, like full-frontal food porn, the book also has recipes so you can make the, to now quote Tom Haverford, “sandoozles” yourself.

There are three desires no man need ever justify — Marisa Tomei, a damn good sandwich, and his mother’s happiness. But since the first one is every man for himself and the last one is an individual concern, we can only advise you on the middle.
Making a damn good sandwich should be first nature for every man since high school, when newly grown patches of hair demand increased levels of protein. Here are the basics you’re going to need. Read more… Keep reading »
I’m definitely one of those “live to eat” people, not an “eat to live” type. And so when I heard about My Social Chef blogger Petrit Husenaj’s chocolate and cheese sandwich my heart began to flutter. So many delicious, fatty calories! Husenaj’s sandwich, dubbed the “Bad Romance,” has all the important food groups — cheese, chocolate, bread and butter — and was inspired by his childhood in Belgium: “I came up with this cheese and chocolate sandwich as a fat kid spending a summer in Belgium and trying to get all things Belgian in my belly,” he says.
I had similar sandwich adventures when I was a kid … Keep reading »
