Apparently mother nature wants to keep us at home. We’ve received her message loud and clear. Just this weekend, Los Angeles turned into a walk-in sauna with temperatures reaching a blistering 121°F/50°C in Woodland Hills. Even if we wanted to step outside during this record-breaking heatwave (we didn’t), we would need hi-tech space suits to keep our skin from spontaneously bursting into flames. And if these weren’t enough reasons to keep us inside, enter the recent wildfires spreading across the state of California, coating our blue skies in an unhealthy orange haze, complete with smoky air and falling ashes. Just when you thought 2020 couldn’t dip any lower… but let’s all take a deep breath. The Husbands are here to help, and today we are sharing something that will ease your mind and cool your scorched soul. Please welcome your new summer savior… Iced Vegan Chai Latte.

It’s official. Summer has finally decided to make her grand appearance in Los Angeles. We are not complaining that she hit the snooze button through the entire month of June, leaving us with thirty days of grey clouds and cool breezes. But July is a different story. Let’s just say that the high temperature today starts with the number 9 and is getting dreadfully close to a 1. For this reason, we have decided to never leave our house again and have found clever ways to keep us from melting. We’ve also been testing new recipes that we can’t wait to share with you. Since the beginning of COVID, grocery shopping has become more challenging, so we are making sure our recipes are simple and practical, using easy-to-find ingredients that you may have in your kitchen already. Enter this delightful new appetizer. Introducing our Tart Cherry Bruschetta.
Listen carefully. Those are the sounds of sparkling bubbles. We are clinking glasses and sipping something fizzy today because this new recipe deserves a celebration. We wanted to create a classic marinara sauce that is bold and memorable, so we tested and refined it until it was just right. Toss it with your favorite pasta, use it as a base for your next pizza night, and treat yourself to shakshuka the next morning with any leftover sauce. No matter how you decide to use it, this magic marinara is truly a classic. Also known as Husbands’ Marinara, we’d like to let you in on a few of our secrets.
Is it December yet? 2020 has been a heck of a year. We hope you and your loved ones are safe and healthy. We know several friends who have caught the coronavirus, so we are taking this pandemic very seriously. We are staying home as much as possible and haven’t even been to the grocery store since March. Instead, we have been using curbside pickup and buying products online. We rarely order takeout and have been cooking up a storm at home, so we’ve stocked our cupboards with bulk items to make a variety of meals at a moment’s notice. We have an entire cabinet with meticulously labeled glass jars filled with quinoa, lentils, oats, pastas, flours, an assortment of grains and rice—and of course, the dark chocolate chips that Adam claims are an essential part of his daily nutritional needs. We also keep plenty of canned goods in the pantry, like black beans, whole italian tomatoes, and coconut milk, so we can enjoy dishes like our colorful Caribbean Black Bean Salad, garlicky Pasta Puttanesca, or the easy Indian Curry with Chickpeas and Cauliflower from our cookbook any night of the week. There are dozens of delicious meals you can whip up by simply keeping a few kitchen staples on hand. This new recipe has been on repeat in our house for the past several months, and it comes together in less than 30 minutes. Breakfast, lunch, or dinner—this vegan frittata is a clear winner.
Hi everyone, as we’ve mentioned in previous posts on social media, our close friend Maya was staying with us for the past two months while she battles cancer, and yesterday she flew home to Oregon to get more treatment. We took good care of her, making organic juices every day, and we are honored to share our recipe with you. Thank you so much to Melissa’s Produce for delivering a weekly Organic Family Box of produce to our home, which we used to make this vibrant drink. These abundant shipments of fruits and vegetables have helped minimize our trips to the grocery store, and are a great way to have fresh produce delivered right to your doorstep—no masks or gloves necessary.
