Babybel, Truffle Honey. A Match Made At 3 A.M.

In case you had too much of either lying around
Mar 3, 2014 12:30 pm

I had three sacks of Babybels, just take me out back and shoot me if I ever run out of those, but they needed a friend and I was out of both crackers and fruit. A dusty jar in the pantry glared at me as though I'd forgotten about it. I had. It was truffle honey, which doens't go bad, and the possibility of introducing these two single pals made me feel like a lunch yenta. A match made in heaven, after the jump.

My Fantasy Lunch City Is Right Here In Midtown

There's honestly nowhere I'd rather be during lunch
Feb 27, 2014 12:30 pm

I was wringing out my brain trying to decide where I'd go if I could hop on a plane and wake up for lunch somewhere, and the strange but undeniable truth is when it comes to the midday repast, I'd really rather just stay here. Here are a jillion reasons why.

The Easiest Way To Improve A Cheese Sandwich? A Schmear Of Ricotta.

Don't let a sandwich with cheese go un-ricotta'd
Feb 24, 2014 12:30 pm

I spread the last few spoonfuls of ricotta I thoughtfully left myself in the bottom of the container on each slice of bread before loading the rest of the party into the bus and let a foil-wrapped brick and gravity do the rest. It went very well.

I Have My First Favorite Salad Of My Life. And Now I'm A Grown-Up.

Geez Jess, just marry Sweetgreen's Cobb salad
Feb 20, 2014 12:30 pm

No one salad has ever made me question my commitment to my lunch-partying ways. Until I met the District Cobb salad from Sweetgreen, which we've profiled and plugged until there could be no possible doubt in your mind that this is the place you want to get your roughage. That salad's making an honest woman out of me.

To make up for forgetting my awesome lunch at home
Feb 19, 2014 12:30 pm

I left my awesome pasta salad on the kitchen counter and it'll be all gross by the time I get home at like, whenever tonight. The thought of that beautiful lunch sitting there for 14 hours feeling like I totally abandoned it after all that tossing and seasoning is depressing. To stay positive, here are all the good memories I've had involving lunch with friends. Maybe the vibes will reach my pasta salad and comfort it while it slowly perishes. 

So Here's A Crazy Sacrilegious Idea: Bacon Sushi

News flash: crunchy bacon roll pummels tuna roll
Feb 13, 2014 12:30 pm

You find the darndest things on the internet when you're looking for bacon sushi. Here I am thinking I'll add some bacon to my weird, deformed maki I keep thinking I'll get better at making for some reason, and this gem pops up. And you don't even find out until halfway through that it's not only bacon. It's prosciutto, too. 

Today For Lunch: Tartiflette. Because, Winter.

A giant blob of cheese baked on bacon and potatoes
Feb 12, 2014 12:30 pm

When food is heavy for heavy food's sake, it needs to be strategic. It needs to be prepared in February, when it hasn't warmed up for like, six weeks and the big dirty snowbanks are given the ultimatum to pay rent or get out. And it obviously should involve bacon, because it's Wednesday. 

Maldon Sea Salt: Not Just For Dessert

How to steal caramel's BFF in time for lunch
Feb 10, 2014 12:30 pm

Enter, Maldon sea salt, greatest salt in the world. It's not for salting boiling water, brining or curing. It doesn't even have to be for cooking (but it might as well be because a 8-ounce box will last a long time). What it does best is sit on top of food, not melt and be crunchy. And not crunchy like hey, an eggshell. Crunchy like "that's delicious." Here's how to break it out at lunchtime.
