A Sandwich a Day Liz Bomze 3 comments

Reason would suggest that when you're eating on-the-go, a gooey grilled cheese is not a practical sandwich choice. Reason would also suggest that when you're picking up lunch from a fine cheese shop—in this case, one of the finest in New England—it's only prudent to order the gooiest, most spectacular-sounding grilled cheese sandwich on the menu.

Kaddo Bourani, a Standout Pumpkin Dish at Helmand in Cambridge

Hub Grub Liz Bomze 2 comments

Not to be a downer on traditional holiday fare, but the redundancy of pumpkin ravioli, soup, cheesecake, bread, and pie leaves me bored with the season's favorite squash. At least, I was before I met kaddo bourani, a classic Afghan preparation that has become my favorite way to eat pumpkin. More
