Rise and shine! The sun is up and the weather is sweet. The Husbands are here with an easy breakfast treat. It’s a busy time of year with the holidays and such, so we thought we’d share a recipe that doesn’t need much. This post may feel like a poem or a song, but it’s not meant to be that, nor meant to be long. It’s just a simple recipe to start off your day, with a few tasty ingredients which we will soon convey. Impossible™ Breakfast Sliders are on the the menu this morning, and they are incredibly addicting—we must give you fair warning.

butternut squash galette with gruyère and caramelized leeks

butternut squash galette with gruyère and caramelized leeks

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

Our neighborhood is especially quiet today. We have the windows open and there’s a soft breeze blowing through the house. If you sit and listen, there are long stretches of silence with an occasional dog barking in the distance and dry leaves rustling in the wind. We feel lucky to live in a place where we can enjoy evening meals outdoors in December without getting too cold. Okay, so the jade plants on our patio may be shriveling from the lack of rain, but today we are feeling grateful for the sunshine. We started this blog five years ago because we love sharing with people. Whenever we come up with a new recipe that excites us, we can’t wait to write about it, and today we have something that we are thrilled to post—a golden galette made with lots of love and a little California sun. Pour yourself something refreshing, soak up the rays, and let us introduce you to this palatable pie!

classic marinara sauce

classic marinara sauce

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.

vegan frittata

vegan frittata

Is it December yet? 2020 has been a heck of a year. We hope you and your loved ones are safe and healthy. We know several friends who have caught the coronavirus, so we are taking this pandemic very seriously. We are staying home as much as possible and haven’t even been to the grocery store since March. Instead, we have been using curbside pickup and buying products online. We rarely order takeout and have been cooking up a storm at home, so we’ve stocked our cupboards with bulk items to make a variety of meals at a moment’s notice. We have an entire cabinet with meticulously labeled glass jars filled with quinoa, lentils, oats, pastas, flours, an assortment of grains and rice—and of course, the dark chocolate chips that Adam claims are an essential part of his daily nutritional needs. We also keep plenty of canned goods in the pantry, like black beans, whole italian tomatoes, and coconut milk, so we can enjoy dishes like our colorful Caribbean Black Bean Salad, garlicky Pasta Puttanesca, or the easy Indian Curry with Chickpeas and Cauliflower from our cookbook any night of the week. There are dozens of delicious meals you can whip up by simply keeping a few kitchen staples on hand. This new recipe has been on repeat in our house for the past several months, and it comes together in less than 30 minutes. Breakfast, lunch, or dinner—this vegan frittata is a clear winner.

gnocchi with winter pesto

gnocchi with winter pesto

This post was created in partnership with Bob’s Red Mill. All opinions are our own.

Two posts ago, we wrote all in rhyme
We have another poem, if you don’t mind
The holidays are here and filled with cheer
We’ve one more recipe before the new year
Winter pesto is what we’re sharing today
When we first tried it, we exclaimed, “No way!”
Too good to be true, so tasty indeed
We hugged each other and both agreed
We must share this with the world for everyone to make
And recommend you pair it with our chocolate puddle cake
