cookbook preview: orange-pecan overnight french toast

orange-pecan overnight french toast

We’re packing our bags and hitting the road! Our new cookbook comes out in less than a month, and we are beyond excited for our upcoming tour. We have always loved traveling—and eating—together, and many of the recipes in the book are inspired by our adventures, like the creamy Ecuadorean soup, Locro de Papa, that we fell in love with while exploring The Galapagos in 2015, and Churros con Chocolate, a traditional Spanish dessert that we get every time we visit Ryan’s relatives in Bilbao. On this trip, we’ll be kicking off the tour here in Los Angeles on March 9 at Barnes & Noble at The Grove at 2pm. We will be baking treats and signing books, so bring the entire family! After our event in town, we’re heading north and hosting book signings in Portland, Seattle, San Francisco, and Napa—see below for all the details and check back as we’ll be adding more dates soon. Okay, now let’s talk about this french toast!

raspberry breakfast parfaits

raspberry breakfast parfaits

Spring is here—the perfect time to pick up some freshly-grown raspberries. We wanted to create a light and healthy breakfast using this deliciously tart fruit, and came up with a recipe that will surely put the spring in your Spring. Made with smooth greek yogurt blended with raspberries, vanilla, and lightly sweetened with powdered sugar, these pretty parfaits may look like dessert, but they are filled with protein and vitamins, making it a tasty way to start your morning. Layered with a toasted pecan and graham cracker crumble, swirled with a striking red raspberry puree, then topped with fresh berries, your family may just shed tears of joy when you waltz into the dining room this weekend with these gorgeous cups in hand. Tune into our weekly Instagram show today at 12pm PST as we prepare these pretty pink parfaits live from our cozy house on the hill in Eagle Rock, California—and if you aren’t able to catch the show today, subscribe to our YouTube so you never miss an episode. See you soon!

lucia’s vegan lemon waffles

lucia's vegan lemon waffles

Is there a word for a meat-eating vegan? This describes our nine-year-old niece Lucia, who can eat anything except for eggs and dairy. Last week she took her first solo flight from Portland, Oregon to visit her favorite uncles, and we packed in four days of fun activities from the moment she stepped off the plane. Cooking pancake breakfasts together, riding every rollercoaster at Disneyland, hand-feeding tropical birds at the Long Beach aquarium, and watching the sunset (with cotton candy) from the Santa Monica Pier—we let her choose the itinerary, and had an unforgettable time. But the best part was having Lucia join us on Instagram Live last Friday for our most adorable episode yet! In case you missed it, the full show is now on our YouTube page and we have lots more coming soon, so be sure to subscribe so you don’t miss any upcoming videos.

peach melba pancakes

peach melba pancakes

Pancakes that make you cry: a true story. In the summer of 2001, Ryan’s 10-year-old cousin from Bilbao, Spain was visiting the United States with her family for the first time. She didn’t speak a word of english and was nervous for the trip—especially about the “weird” American food she had heard about—and worried she would starve during this two week vacation in Portland, Oregon. On the very first morning, as Ryan’s mom cooked pancakes for everyone, his cousin sat at the breakfast table white as a ghost. She had never seen or heard of a pancake before, and when a fluffy golden stack was set down before her, she immediately burst into tears. Once the initial shock wore off, she took a few brave bites, but had clearly decided that pancakes—and American food—were not for her. Thankfully, she became a bit more comfortable over the course of her stay and managed to escape starvation, so now she’s in her mid-twenties, happy, healthy… and still avoiding pancakes. Another true story is that the recipe we are sharing today had nearly the exact same effect on us—except they were tears of joy! If you love peach melba, prepare your palate for peach melba pancakes and let the peach party continue…

cinnamon-sugar monkey bread

cinnamon-sugar monkey bread

Would you believe us if we told you there is a homemade bread you don’t have to knead, there are absolutely no thermometers involved, and the prep takes just five minutes? If we were to expand further, mentioning that this masterpiece exhibits a perfectly crispy, buttery crust, and the most pillow-soft, delicious chewy interior, you might think we were making this all up.
