Young or old, who can resist peanut butter? When paired with jelly and made into a sandwich, this creamy, nutty spread it takes us back to our childhood.

Recipe: Mozzacado Sandwich
I think of myself as sandwich agnostic. It’s not that I don’t believe in them, per se; I just rarely acknowledge their existence. I need cold, hard evidence; you have to really shove a good sandwich in front of me, and then all of a sudden I become a believer all over again.

Recipe: Eggplant Caponata Sandwiches with Mozzarella & Basil
This is one of those versatile recipes that can serve more than one purpose — dip, sandwich filling, pasta sauce — and it makes use of all those beautiful eggplants that are in season… Credit goes to my dad for creating this caponata, which he calls “the eggplant dip,” although we’ve tweaked and fiddled with it over time. It’s a traditional, stewy mix of eggplant, pepper, onions, and tomato with some salty olives and a dash of vinegar.

What to Put on a Fresh Vegetable Sandwich
There are a lot of vegetable sandwich options out there. Most involve roasted vegetables, and those are just fine for another occasion. For this sandwich, though, we’re talking a salad on two slices of bread. It’s so refreshing and satisfyingly crunchy. If you fear it won’t be filling enough, add some cheese (a smear of cream cheese is good, too).And blame it on Subway, but two things we absolutely, positively have to have are banana peppers and dill pickles.

Recipe: Slow Cooker Vegetarian Split Pea Soup with Grilled Cheese Croutons
I grew up eating my grandmother’s split pea soup, and it’s one of the first things I learned to cook when I moved away from home. For this version, I omitted one harder-to-find ingredient so I can make it without a trip to a specialty store! To me, split pea soup tastes like home. However, when I tried to replicate our family recipe on my own, I always had trouble finding a ham bone. My local grocery store just wouldn’t sell me ham hocks or a ham bone.

How To Make Basic White Sandwich Bread
What does a loaf of white sandwich bread make you think of?

5 Ways to Make a Hot, Crispy Sandwich Without a Panini Press
I used to have a little countertop grill, the jawed sort with removable plates (always thought of them as dentures) for waffles, sandwiches, and grilling.

Here are 5 ways to get the sandwich without the gadget. Pan on the stove, with a lid for a press.

Recipe: French Onion Soup Grilled Cheese
I spent three days of my holiday break on a quest to make the perfect French onion soup, beginning from scratch with the beef stock. And while it was incredible, it is not very often that I have the time or energy to really put that much effort into dinner. I decided there must be an easier way, and as it turns out, there is! Basically, I seem to prefer my soup in sandwich-form.My ultimate “bowl” of onion soup is one part soup, one part toasted bread, and one part melty cheese.

Recipe: Korean Chicken Sliders with Braised Kale & Kimchi
I have absolutely zero interest in football, basketball, or baseball — so for me, gatherings around game days are all about the food. The spread always includes a few of the grubby, nostalgic snacks we grew up with — cheesy queso dip, I’m looking at you — as well as some fresher, lighter snacks that often incorporate flavors from one of the many international cuisines that surround us here in Los Angeles.

Recipe: Tuna Melts with Olive Oil Mayonnaise & Parmesan
Tuna salad, chicken salad, and egg salad are staples in my house, and they are almost always made better with melted cheese.

I usually throw any one of these together for lunch as an afterthought, until it dawned on me that they could use some special attention.

From Sandwich to Salad…And Back Again
I love sandwiches. I don’t love how eating a large quantity of bread and then trying to sit down to work makes me want to take a nap instead. Over the years, I’ve learned to eat my favorite sandwiches without the bread. Cheeseburger salad is delicious. So is turkey and Swiss. Even my favorite deli sandwich with mixed cold cuts, melted cheese, and thousand island pickle dressing is delicious over a pile of mixed greens. My latest favorite is a B.L.T.

Close your eyes. Imagine the best meal you’ve ever eaten. Maybe you were in Paris, lingering in a cafe just one block from the chic flat your friend lent you for the week.

Hosting a Meeting? Try My 70s-Style Menu
The other night, I hosted a small meeting at my house, a group of ladies who were coming over to talk about auction acquisitions for my son’s school. You know what makes a meeting more fun?

Recipe: Open-Faced Chicken Salad Sandwich
Generally speaking, I try not to eat sandwiches for lunch. I’m not carbo-phobic, but bread is one of the densest sources of calories among my usual lunch options. Sometimes, though, I get a strong sandwich craving. When that happens, I try to split the difference between sandwich and no-sandwich by making it open-faced, one piece of toast with the ingredients on top, eaten with a knife and fork.

10 Easy Ways to Stuff a Pita Pocket
A piece of pita bread is a little world unto itself — so round, so hollow, so open to whatever you desire for lunch. And so portable and convenient, too!

Why I Ditched Sandwich Bread for Collard Green Wraps
What started off as an accidental purchase — blindly grabbing a bunch of collard greens instead of kale — ended up completely changing the way I do lunch. And I’m not talking about salads. Instead, collard greens put an end to my days of relying solely on bread, wraps, or tortillas to make my lunch sandwiches. My intention was to buy a bunch of kale for smoothies, but in my whirlwind dash through the produce section, I came home with a bunch of collard greens instead.

5 Mistakes to Avoid When Making Grilled Cheese
The grilled cheese sandwich is a classic. Perfectly melted and oozy cheese, sandwiched between two golden, crisp, buttery slices of bread — it’s simple, comforting, and utterly timeless. It’s one of the first things we learn to cook, and one we carry with us through the years. But as basic as this sandwich is, there are a few hang-ups that could stand between you and the grilled cheese of your dreams. Don’t let it happen to you.

How To Make Slow Cooker French Dip Sandwiches
I remember almost nothing about my first visit to Philippe’s restaurant in Los Angeles except for the most important thing: the French dip sandwiches.

Recipe: Pesto and Egg Baguette Sandwich
One of my favorite lunches while living in Paris was the simple baguette sandwich that any corner bakery carried. Unlike overstuffed American sandwiches, these usually only had butter and thin layers of ham and cheese. The baguette holding it all together was the key here — it had to be fresh, with a crispy outside and fluffy interior. Here’s my latest version; it that can be eaten for either breakfast or lunch! This baguette sandwich is a fun little twist on egg salad.

Recipe: Ham Welsh Rarebit
If you haven’t already heard of it, let me introduce you to a non-traditional sandwich that is well worth adding to your repertoire: Welsh Rarebit. This classic British dish is made of toasted bread covered in a fondue-like sauce of melted cheese and dark ale, and we’ve taken the liberty of adding a few slices of ham to it too. There are many versions of Welsh Rarebit, and some throw the whole thing in the broiler to get browned on top.

Recipe: Mexican Meatball Subs
Meatball sandwiches are one of those hearty meals that I don’t mind eating as a filling lunch or for dinner — whenever the craving hits for some comfort food.

Recipe: Shrimp and Avocado Po’ Boys
Whenever I see a seafood po’ boy on a restaurant menu, I’m usually tempted to order it because I’m such a fan of the combination of crispy fried seafood, cool lettuce, and creamy mayo on a soft roll.

But what if there was an easy way to get a golden-brown coating onto homemade baked fish? Here’s a little trick that’s a game-changer if you want the ultimate crunchy coating. Japanese panko breadcrumbs are often touted as the secret ingredient to making crispy breaded foods.

Recipe: Asparagus, Ham, and Cheese Stuffed Buns
The only thing better than breaking open a flaky dinner roll that’s still warm from the oven is a roll that’s warm and filled with roasted asparagus, ham, and melty Gouda cheese. To keep these buns simple, I used store-bought biscuit dough — like the kind you’d buy in a tube that pops and scares you half to death every time. Not a fan of the canned biscuits? Substitute purchased or homemade pizza dough.

A Simple Upgrade for Your Summer Lobster Roll
My husband’s family has a little house on Southport Island, Maine. Every summer we trek to this beautiful, quiet oasis to unplug and relax — and eat lobster, of course.

While lobster roll purists may scoff at this idea, I think it’s rather ingenious.

Since this recipe is practically a salad in a sandwich, try to track down the freshest, most vibrant produce you can. It’s worth the hunt through the farmers market to find onions that make you swoon, leafy parsley, and green beans fresh from the garden.

What makes this new take on tomato toast different is the magic of chunky slices of ripe tomatoes that sit right on the cusp of sweet and savory, between fruit and vegetable. A pinch of salt brings out their juiciness, honey highlights their sweetness, and the nuttiness of whole-grain bread grounds the sandwich with a hearty foundation. Every ingredient supports those fat slices of tomatoes. And it all comes together in just a minute. We all have our favorite tomatoes sandwiches.
