vegetarian spaghetti carbonara

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

Break out the Prosecco and pasta! This Saturday, April 6, is the third annual World #CarbonaraDay. We have a feeling that this year’s celebration will be the best one yet because we created a delicious vegetarian version to bring to the party that everyone can enjoy. There may not be any meat in our recipe, but we have some tasty tricks up our sleeves that make this dish just as satisfying—even without the traditional pork. Pick out your favorite bottle of wine—or perhaps it’s a cocktail that belongs in your hand this weekend—and surprise your friends and family with this classic Italian pasta dish. Arrange some colorful flowers on the table, choose something sweet for dessert, and prepare your taste buds for a Roman holiday.

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!

cookbook preview: toasted hazelnut fudge

The holidays are near and the Husbands are here with some chocolaty cheer on this rainy Wednesday in Eagle Rock. We are celebrating a few things today: the first is this rare, gloomy weather where we plan to stay indoors and write this post in our warm robes, sipping gingerbread hot chocolate and enjoying the sound of rain falling outside. We’re also popping the champagne because we just received our first cookbook review from the respected Publishers Weekly! If you would like a little teaser of a few recipes included in our book, they highlighted a handful of them in the article, which you can read here. Aaand, we are also celebrating by giving you a sneak peak into the dessert chapter of our upcoming cookbook! For all you Nutella fans out there, your holiday dreams have come true with this easy-to-make toasted hazelnut fudge. If you’re still looking for present ideas this season, these rich, creamy squares are just begging to be wrapped into festive gift bags for all your friends and family.
