The Perfect Dinner Napkin

How many of you iron your dinner napkins? Or even have dinner napkins? Dave’s daughter, Melissa, didn’t even realize that she should have dinner napkins until watching this video. Good thing Dave has tricked her into learning by making her post this video…

Sometimes a little detail can make a night special. A perfectly folded dinner napkin not only allows your guests to feel graceful when they sit at your table, but it also provides some classic style effortlessly. There are definitely more complex folds out there for napkins, but we at H&D love this simple, classic accordion fold. It’s timeless and looks polished every time.

Harris’ Scrambled Eggs

In our first demonstration, Harris shows you how to make the perfect scrambled egg. Well, at least Leah thinks so!

Celebrity chef, Wolfgang Puck, judges his chefs by how they cook an egg. In fact, when Chef Puck judged “Top Chef”, he challenged the contestants to do just that. A great scrambled egg is so versatile. At H&D, we like to add smoked salmon, matzoh, or a good cheese like Gruyere or Gouda, but never milk or water! Let the air make your eggs fluffy. Also, you might notice that Harris doesn’t season his eggs during the cooking process, as he prefers to let his guests season to their preference. But feel free to add seasoning before serving if you wish. It’s your dish!

Enjoy!

It all began with an air mattress…

Hello! Welcome! Thank you so much for stopping by!

We are lovingly known by our children as “The Dads”. It all began one evening when we were visiting Melissa (Dave’s daughter) and her husband in NYC. We had already left them to head back to our hotel for the night, but Leah (Harris’ daughter) and her husband, Sean, were staying at Melissa’s. Apparently, when Melissa had spotted the air mattress, which was loaned to Leah & Sean by us, she was beyond impressed. Impressed by an air mattress? Yes. In her opinion, it wasn’t just any ordinary, sit-on-it-and-roll-onto-the-floor type inflated mattress. It was a kind that had the edges and sturdiness of a real bed. Well, almost.

Melissa exclaimed how she bet The Dads researched online and read the reviews to find the best air mattress for their buck. Leah laughed and chimed in that Harris had told her about his air mattress buying experience. She told Sean and Melissa that her dad had the cashier open the box at check-out to see if the mattress plugged in without batteries. He didn’t want his baby having to hunt for batteries on her vacation!

And so, the conversation began. They all became so excited with the idea that the Dads should have a site where they could share their tips and insight. Melissa made sure that they documented this momentous occasion with a photo (as seen below).

We are a couple of guys who very much love entertaining, cooking, gardening, antique and art collecting, our koi fish pond, home decor, cocktails… and of course, most importantly, our family!
