Last month, Husbands That Cook turned 4! On April 29, 2015 we published the first two recipes on our website—Triple Chocolate Fudge Brownies and Penne with Zucchini and Lemon. If someone were to tell us back then that we would soon have our own cookbook, we wouldn’t have believed it for a second. What began as a hobby and a creative outlet where we could share recipes with our friends and family quickly turned into a full-time gig. In just 4 years, we’ve had opportunities to travel all across the US, learning about exotic flavors and inventive cooking techniques, and meeting so many new friends along the way. But one thing hasn’t changed since day one—we are still obsessed with pasta! So today, to celebrate our 4-year blog anniversary, we thought what better way to do it than with a vibrant summer pasta featuring fresh basil, garlic, and colorful heirloom tomatoes. Let us introduce you to our newest recipe: pasta d’estate—it’s as romantic as it sounds.

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.

goat cheese ravioli with arugula pesto

goat cheese ravioli with arugula pesto

Our cat looks ridiculous right now. Poor Sylvia has a hotspot on her right side, and licked off all the fur in an area about the size of a half-dollar. To keep her from making it worse, we had to put on the infamous cone of shame. It was depressing to see her mope around the house, bumping into walls, and having difficulty eating her food, but thankfully we found a friendlier option: an inflatable ring that fits comfortably around her neck like those U-shaped pillows made for air travel. She is much happier, just as playful, and can even clean parts of her fur again. So that is the Sylvia report, and now on to the reason why you are really here. The reason why this may be the most delicious homemade ravioli you’ve ever tried. The reason why this super quick and easy recipe is about to become one of your new favorite dinners. Please make the acquaintance of goat cheese ravioli with arugula pesto, and fasten your seatbelt.

vegetarian tteokbokki

It has been raining here in Los Angeles and we are loving every second. Nothing is more soothing than falling asleep to the sound of drops hitting our rooftop, then waking up to find the plants outside glowing a brilliant green and radiating with life. These cloudy days are perfect for photographing food: the light is softer, diffused, and bluish-white, making everything more vibrant and a pleasure to shoot. Speaking of photography, our friend Soe (Lime & Cilantro), an outstanding cook and photographer (won “Best New Voice” at the Saveur 2016 Blog Awards), recently invited us to participate in a #noodleholicsparty where everyone cooks their favorite noodle dish and shares it today on their website. With a hashtag like that, how could we resist? This spicy and comforting delicacy couldn’t be more fitting for a cold rainy day. It is one of our favorite Korean appetizers, and this vegetarian version is just as flavorful as the original. A fun word to say, tteokbokki (duck-boke-KEE) is also super quick and easy to make!
