The Sandwich Project

Adam designed our wedding website, and the best part of the site was definitely the “ADAM + JODI” banner he created from scratch. It all happened on a Sunday in May when Adam had the inspiration of making our names out of sandwiches.
We started the day with brunch at Noble Pig with Emily G. and Kenny P. As we were waiting for our meal, Adam took the lead on brainstorming lists of different types of bread and sandwiches.
After brunch, I took a nap while Adam and Emily went to Central …

Our shotgun wedding

Most of you know that Adam and I went to Europe last September on an amazing trip I won from Whole Foods Market after making this video; and that we got engaged in Paris. You also may know that we spent a lot of time last October and November looking at venues. We planned to get married in October 2012.
In the midst of all this excitement, Adam’s 100-year-old Bubbe, who was the last person to leave her 200-person birthday party last summer, started weakening. She was very frail over Thanksgiving, and …

Adam H: Questions on Your Life in Food

Anyone who has spent time with Adam knows immediately that he is passionate about food and cooking. We love grocery shopping, cooking, and eating together and I’m so lucky to share this adventure in life and food with him. He is a wonderful storyteller and I hope this is one of many guest blog posts to come.

Paula H: Questions on Your Life in Food

Since Sylvia’s “life in food” kind of left off with Paula’s birth, it seemed to make sense to move to Paula’s stories next. Like the sweet and selfless mother that she is, when I asked her for old photos, she sent LOTS of her son Adam, but few of herself.

If you were given a dollar to buy treats when you were a kid, what would you buy?
Don’t remember being given a dollar to buy treats, but if I did, …
