Just when you thought you’d seen it all… leave it to the Husbands to invent something entirely brand new; something that’s never been attempted in a kitchen before; a recipe that is completely unsearchable on Google; a debut dip that is going to change the way you think about guacamole forever. It’s the height of California Avocado season and the weather is starting to heat up, so fix yourself a refreshing Aurora Spring, and sit back and relax while we introduce our latest creation. Friends and esteemed guests, may we present to you… Guacanoochi!

toasted orzo with roasted garlic and asparagus

There is something magical that happens when you toast orzo on a hot stove. Who would have thought that browning this cute, rice-shaped pasta in melted butter would be the first step in preparing a simple dinner like this? It’s one of our favorite tricks that adds extra flavor to dishes, and we’ve shared about this tasty technique before—like in our Toasted Orzo With Kale, Basil, And Pecorino Romano on the blog and in our easy, one-pan Toasted Orzo with Brussels Sprouts and Wilted Greens from the Sides chapter in our cookbook. Today we’re using this magnificent method once more and turning your dinner table into a colorful spring spectacle. This dish has been on repeat in our house all week, and we’re so excited to share it with you today: Toasted Orzo with Roasted Garlic and Asparagus.

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.

This post was created in partnership with Montmorency Tart Cherries. All opinions are our own.

It’s official. Summer has finally decided to make her grand appearance in Los Angeles. We are not complaining that she hit the snooze button through the entire month of June, leaving us with thirty days of grey clouds and cool breezes. But July is a different story. Let’s just say that the high temperature today starts with the number 9 and is getting dreadfully close to a 1. For this reason, we have decided to never leave our house again and have found clever ways to keep us from melting. We’ve also been testing new recipes that we can’t wait to share with you. Since the beginning of COVID, grocery shopping has become more challenging, so we are making sure our recipes are simple and practical, using easy-to-find ingredients that you may have in your kitchen already. Enter this delightful new appetizer. Introducing our Tart Cherry Bruschetta.
