The Best Thing I Ate Yesterday


Welcome to The Best Thing I Ate Yesterday, where we endeavor to remember the very best thing we stuffed down our gullets over the past 24 hours. Why? Because the only thing better than enjoying a meal is wallowing in the memory of one savored in the recent past.

Today’s fond reminiscences …

Chantal Martineau: Crabs from a fishy Christmas dinner in Staten Island.

Lauren Shockey: Chocolate-chip-less chocolate-chip cookies, at home.

Robert Sietsema: Banana bread with nuts, made at home.

Rebecca Marx: Peanut soup and skillet cornbread, made at home.
