“Honey, you are 300 sandwiches away from an engagement ring.”
When New York Post writer Stephanie Smith made a turkey and Swiss on white bread for her boyfriend, Eric (aka E), he took one bite and uttered those now-famous words. While her beau’s declaration initially seemed unusual, even antiquated, Stephanie accepted the challenge and got to work. Little did she know she was about to cook up the sexiest and most controversial love story of her generation.
300 Sandwiches is the story of Stephanie and E’s epic journey of bread and betrothal, with a whole loaf of recipes to boot. For Stephanie, a novice in the kitchen, making a sandwich—or even 300—for E wasn’t just about getting a ring; it was her way of saying “I love you” while gaining confidence as a chef. It was about how many breakfast sandwiches they could eat together on future Sunday mornings, how many s’mores might follow family snowboarding trips, how many silly fights would end in makeup sandwiches. Suddenly, she saw a lifetime of happiness between those two slices of bread.
Not everyone agreed. The media dubbed E “the Internet’s Worst Boyfriend”; bloggers attacked the loving couple for setting back the cause of women’s rights; opinions about their romance echoed from as far away as Japan. Soon, Stephanie found her cooking and her relationship under the harsh glare of the spotlight.
From culinary twists on peanut butter and jelly to “Not Your Mother’s Roast Beef” spicy French Dip to Chicken and Waffle BLTs, Stephanie shares the creations—including wraps, burritos, paninis, and burgers—that ultimately sated E’s palate and won his heart. Part recipe book, part girl-meets-boy memoir, 300 Sandwiches teaches us that true love always wins out—one delicious bite at a time.

Sadly met my expectations There was a bit of a kerfuffle when we heard about this woman making 300 sandwiches for her then boyfriend.

It is hard to be objective about this book. At one point reading it I kept thinking is she really this desperate to be married? At times he came off like a selfish jerk. But this is only her telling of their story and what she has chosen to share so who I am to judge. The rationale for making the...

I understood why Stephanie took E up on his comment that she was 300 sandwiches from a proposal. I enjoyed her journey from hesitant sandwich assembler to confident sandwich generator. I appreciated the chapters about her fathers declining health and the whole pole dancing experiance. I may have...

I went into this book only knowing what I had read on the jacket and honestly, it was a really sweet read.
That said, I kinda wish she'd spent a little less page real estate on the sandwiches and more actually talking about her relationship with E.
This is not to say I'm gonna try and make some o...

Cute idea, decent story. I thought the author was a bit annoying. Really, how much pressure are you going to put on a guy to propose?? Get a grip. Anyways, I love a good sandwich. Liked to see how she got more confident in the kitchen.
