    Christmas has come and gone. So now you're left with a bunch of ham ... turkey ... goose ... duck ... maybe even steak after your Christmastime eating and drinking binge. Not only do you feel extremely bloated and exhausted, you need a detox ASAP. And what to do with all those leftovers?

    What better way to use up that meat than putting it over some fresh greens and chopped veggies? This base recipe for steak salad from Giada De Laurentiis, with a delicious red wine vinaigrette, is great to start out with, then you can do whatever you like. Mix up the type of lettuce, cheese, veggies ... and a special shout-out, if you are from Pittsburgh (like I am!), there's nothing better than putting some warm French fries on top. I know, it sounds insane, but it's actually quite delicious!

    When it comes to my all-time favorite places to eat, Paris tops the list and Rome comes in a very close second. But while chefs in both of these cities do wonderful things at dinnertime, they always leave me wanting more around noon -- when the best food in the world to chow down on is a big, hearty, delicious American sandwich. I am far from the only one who feels this way. The country actually pays tribute to this culinary treat with National Sandwich Day on November 3, and incredibly cool maps like this one show the best sandwich from every state. But don't be surprised if, like me, your favorite sandwich didn't make the cut.
