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!

bourbon pecan pie upside-down cake

bourbon pecan pie upside-down cake

Guess where we are headed next month? If you guessed Lexington, Kentucky, you are correct! In just a few weeks, we’ll be sipping on juleps and sampling every kind of bourbon the beautiful Bluegrass State has to offer. This is our first time visiting, so if anyone has recommendations or travel tips, please let us know in the comments below. We will be attending an intimate blogger’s retreat, hosted by the lovely and talented Lauren of Harvest and Honey, a fellow finalist at the 2016 Saveur Blog Awards. We became instant friends at the ceremony in New York and are looking forward to spending more time with her in her hometown during this eventful weekend she has planned. Follow along on our Instagram Stories as we visit horse farms, tour bourbon distilleries, and taste moonshine for the very first time. Speaking of liquor, can we please discuss this cake recipe we are sharing today? Inspired by our upcoming trip to Kentucky, we wanted to create a recipe featuring a classic southern ingredient: bourbon! So pick out your favorite bottle, put on some Bill Monroe, and let’s get this cake party started!
