Spring is springing, and the Husbands are singing. It’s the peak of California Avocado season and we have a new recipe featuring this fabulous fruit, filled with golden sunshine and ready to light up your table! It’s been fun partnering with California Avocados this year—in March, their theme was creating dishes that use little to no food waste, and we made a delicious hearty pasta that comes together in just minutes. This month’s theme is “heritage cooking,” so today we’re excited to share a tasty new recipe that reminds us of home. Adam grew up in Southern California and Ryan has lived here for more than half his life, so Mexican cuisine has always been an integral part of our relationship—whether we’re ordering vegan tacos from a local food truck on a Saturday date night, or enjoying chiles rellenos and jalapeño-cucumber margaritas at one of our favorite Mexican restaurants around town. Pack your sandals and extra pairs of shorts, and don’t forget your sunglasses, because today you’re taking a trip to Southern California to enjoy a little taste of our neighborhood. Yes, you’ll probably spot a celebrity or two, but the highlight of your trip will certainly be this star. Will you please welcome to your table… Kimchi Quesadillas with Swiss Cheese and Avocado.

Spring is near and the Husbands are here to kick things into high gear. Open your windows and let in some fresh air—the birds are singing, the sun is shining, and it’s a beautiful day outside. It’s the beginning of California Avocado season and we have a new pasta recipe that is colorful, delicious, and filled with seasonal produce that we are excited to share with you. We are always up for a challenge, and when California Avocados asked us to create a new dish that uses little to no food waste, we got busy testing in the kitchen and came up with… dare we say a pasta paragon? Let us explain.

samosa burgers with cilantro-mint chutney

It was a cold and rainy night. The Husbands’ house was flickering with candles, and raindrops tapping lively on the roof replaced our usual soundtrack of music while we cook. We were craving something warm and cozy for this wintry occasion, and decided to make masoor daal from our blog. We also fried up fresh Indian samosas, one of our go-to recipes from the Sides chapter in our cookbook. As we enjoyed our dinner, the rain steadily grew louder and eventually turned into showers of hail. Between the glowing lights in our house and the rare southern California storm outside, it made for a romantic meal, and also inspired an idea for a brand new recipe. If you are a fan of Indian samosas, then you’re going to fall in love with our vegetarian Samosa Burgers with Cilantro-Mint Chutney. Fix yourself a vegan chai latte, sit back and relax, and let us explain what this new sensation is all about.

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.

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!
