For most of my 70 years I’ve found needy women off-putting so was taken aback by the idea of a woman cooking up the task of creating 300 sandwiches in return for a wedding ring - but the joke turned out to be on me. As I got into the book I realized the situation was tongue-in-cheek and author Stephanie Smith and her boyfriend E, along with the reader, we’re all having fun with this contrived gimmick.

Stephanie is a writer for the New York Post and has a blog called 300 Sandwiches. The book deals mostly with the ups and downs of her love life and her job at the post. The reader feels true empathy when Stephanie is faced with the illness and eventual death of her father. Aside from that life shaking happening most of the book is rather bland and plays second fiddle to the recipes.

There are not 300 recipes in this book but there are so many that I’m in a quandary as to whether I should shelve this book with memoirs or my cookbooks – the latter choice won. There are a couple of the sandwiches that remind me of my childhood. My mom would make Grilled Peach and Cream Cheese Sammys as well as the Roasted Tomato and Grilled Cheddar Cheese. I plan to make the Chicken Salad with Cranberries and Pecans next weekend for a little get-together.

I will say that the book reads predominantly like a blog and I personally don’t think that one genre grows better by infiltrating another but this was a valiant effort. It was a fun book and it’s one that I’m going to recommend to my reading group. Maybe we’ll each make a sandwich to bring to the meeting so we can try a lot more of Stephanie Smith’s offerings.

You could almost buy Stephanie Smith's "300 Sandwiches" for the recipes alone. Guaranteed you will find many sandwiches you've never thought of before that will arouse your palate. I liked the "On the Mend-Roasted Tomato and Grilled Cheddar Cheese," which I'm sure will cure the common cold and please your tummy at the same time. Cheese figures prominently in the recipes, which is fine by me! Try the "Brie and Pear Grilled Cheese" for a delicious and healthy sandwich treat. I was also pumped at the thought of "Candied Bacon and Honey Dijon Chicken Wraps." That's one of those sandwiches whose ingredients may not appear to mesh on first hearing, but, oh boy! do they ever!

However, the prose is not as palatable. It is pedestrian and a bit plodding, as if Smith were giving a report instead of talking casually to a friend. Not every page is like that, but too many of them are. At times the writing seemed forced, as if she had to do her "300 words" that day or else! And, of course, there is that other thing: the (to some) humiliating idea of a modern, smart, talented, healthy, pretty woman working hard for a proposal from her boyfriend. A few times she almost blows it because there is no "movement" in that direction that she can see from E, her boyfriend. Her friend tells her, "Stop. You're about to wreck everything. . . " She ponders her predicament and comes up with the decidedly torturous and "woman-in-captivity" mentality as she concludes, "He held all the cards." Oh? But, my dear, who gave him all those cards?

In this day and age it still surprises me how many girls/women politely "wait" for that proposal.

This was a fun read, with lots of nice thoughts about marriage and relationships. Since it came from a blog, it has the blog issues. Personally I would not marry a man with so many food dislikes -lol. The book is about their working toward improving their relationship through learning to cook.The stories were fun.
The only part of the book i did not like was the first three chapters, about her perfect childhood and perfect career, etc.....

The romance that created the humor in starting those 300 sandwiches is well worth, it and those sandwiches are creatively scrumptious.
She called his bluff.
Ha! she earned it; They both earned each other.
Goes to show love can blossom in many forms
Now, you have 300 choices!

Stephanie Smith’s 300 SANDWICHES is a mix of memoir and recipes. Her boyfriend, referred to mostly as “E.” has promised her that he will marry her if she makes him three hundred sandwiches.
The very idea that Smith would be willing to do such a thing could be off-putting to some readers; if E. really wanted to marry her, would he have her jump through hoops like that? But I counter this by pointing out the price of the bridal ring set that Smith wants; many women would be happy with a more modest ring set. So perhaps Smith is the winner there? We’ll see.

Smith also details other things going on in her life during the “three hundred sandwiches” period, in particular, her father’s terminal illness and her wish to have him escort her down the aisle to E. Smith and E., like all couples, do have occasional quarrels, and sometimes readers might wonder whether Smith and E. might give up on the sandwiches – and the relationship.

Though the narrative part has some strong points and some very weak points, the recipes that Smith shares are some that I like. Though she lives in Brooklyn and would likely have fairly easy access to not-so-commonplace foods and ingredients, most of the ingredients in the sandwich recipes are available at most supermarkets. I will look the recipes over again and try some.

If you liked JULIE AND JULIA, this is a similar work.
