The holidays are near and the Husbands are here with some chocolaty cheer on this rainy Wednesday in Eagle Rock. We are celebrating a few things today: the first is this rare, gloomy weather where we plan to stay indoors and write this post in our warm robes, sipping gingerbread hot chocolate and enjoying the sound of rain falling outside. We’re also popping the champagne because we just received our first cookbook review from the respected Publishers Weekly! If you would like a little teaser of a few recipes included in our book, they highlighted a handful of them in the article, which you can read here. Aaand, we are also celebrating by giving you a sneak peak into the dessert chapter of our upcoming cookbook! For all you Nutella fans out there, your holiday dreams have come true with this easy-to-make toasted hazelnut fudge. If you’re still looking for present ideas this season, these rich, creamy squares are just begging to be wrapped into festive gift bags for all your friends and family.

roasted garlic toast with spicy goat cheese + caribbean recap

roasted garlic toast with spicy goat cheese from the Pirate's Bight on Norman Island

Every few years, Ryan’s parents invite the entire family on an adventure sailing trip in the British Virgin Islands. They rent a large catamaran, comfortable enough to sleep eight of us—including Ryan’s oldest brother David, his wife Jenny, and their two daughters, Stella and Lucia. The boat has four cozy bedrooms and four bathrooms on the lower level, while the living space is located upstairs, along with a tiny kitchen equipped with a small propane stove. It never felt cramped, except for the brisk navy showers before bedtime, where we would quickly scrub off the layers of sunscreen and salt from our daily snorkeling adventures, using as little water as humanly possible in a space about the size of a phone booth.
