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.

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.

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.
Tomorrow is the first day of summer, and we are diving right in. In less than 48 hours, we’ll be sailing on crystal clear waters 3500 miles from Los Angeles, sipping on dark and stormys, passion coladas, and soaking up Caribbean sunshine in the tropical British Virgin Islands. Ryan’s parents are experienced sailors, and every few years, they invite the family to explore the seas in a 45-foot catamaran that will be our floating home for the week. Stocked with a full kitchen complete with an oven and stove, the eight of us will be cruising in the water—with laughing gulls tagging along, waiting for our nieces Stella and Lucia, who will throw them a treat. With four bedrooms, four bathrooms, and a sound system which will have Bob Marley and Harry Belafonte on repeat, our crew will be adventuring around the neighboring islands that make up this picture-perfect region—sampling fresh local fruit, snorkeling in 80-degree waters teeming with coral reefs and rainbow-colored fish, and enjoying some much-needed relaxation after this past year and a half of writing the cookbook! But before we embark, we’d like to leave you with a brand new recipe and a refreshing drink to go with it.
Spring is here, and so is the Husbands That Cook cookbook! That feels so good say, as we have been waiting oh-so-long to tell you! For those of you just tuning in: our book will be released March 12, 2019 on St. Martin’s Press, and you can pre-order your copy today! The process was an intense eighteen months in the making, but your overwhelming response these past few days has made it all worth it. To celebrate, today we are sharing our first preview from the book, a little sneak peek of one of our favorite recipes in the Entertaining Chapter. It was difficult to choose which one to share first, but this is the height of asparagus season, and the perfect time to post a dish featuring this healthy and delicious spring vegetable. Please put your hands together and give a warm welcome to the first recipe from our new vegetarian cookbook, Spring Tarts with Asparagus, Sun-Dried Tomatoes, and Goat Cheese.
