our book tour in new york

enjoying a home-cooked breakfast in our Sonder apartment

This post was created in partnership with Sonder. All opinions are our own.

Last month we flew to New York for two fun events to promote our cookbook. The city was clearly showing off for us that week, with blue skies, warm Spring temperatures, and blossoming cherry trees covered with pink and white flowers on every corner. It rained the morning we left—but more on that in a moment. We arrived on a Wednesday evening and were both exhausted from waking up at 4am to catch an early flight to the east coast. No matter how long and uncomfortable the plane ride felt, we kept reminding ourselves that we were just a few hours away from thin slices of New York pizza.

This post was created in partnership with The National Mango Board. All opinions are our own.

Spring is in full bloom here in Eagle Rock. It’s currently 72 degrees outside, our windows are open, the birds are singing… and a noisy gas-powered weed trimmer just started roaring from across the hill. Aside from the occasional noise distraction, it’s quiet where we live, and May is spectacular with patches of wildflowers popping up everywhere in deep shades of pinks, blues, and purples. To celebrate the season, today we’re sharing a Spring recipe that will make your taste buds blossom. If you’re searching for the perfect dish for Cinco de Mayo or Mother’s Day, or perhaps just a romantic evening for two, this savory spring galette is here to add a little more color and flavor to this vibrant time of year.

vegetarian spaghetti carbonara

Break out the Prosecco and pasta! This Saturday, April 6, is the third annual World #CarbonaraDay. We have a feeling that this year’s celebration will be the best one yet because we created a delicious vegetarian version to bring to the party that everyone can enjoy. There may not be any meat in our recipe, but we have some tasty tricks up our sleeves that make this dish just as satisfying—even without the traditional pork. Pick out your favorite bottle of wine—or perhaps it’s a cocktail that belongs in your hand this weekend—and surprise your friends and family with this classic Italian pasta dish. Arrange some colorful flowers on the table, choose something sweet for dessert, and prepare your taste buds for a Roman holiday.

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!
