(Tapping the microphone) “Is this thing on?” A short cry of feedback rings throughout the packed theater. The audience sips their sparkling champagne, excited to hear Ryan and Adam’s acceptance speech. The Husbands continue as the final echoes of feedback vanish in the upper balcony. “You’re all so very kind.

This calls for a celebration. Pop the bubbly—or even better, fix yourself a Sparkling Dragon Fruit Margarita—and join us for a toast. Our blog turns 6 next month so of course we had to do something extra special for the occasion. On our official launch day—April 29th, 2015—we published two recipes: a zesty Penne with Zucchini and Lemon (still a favorite) and Triple Chocolate Fudge Brownies, a signature dessert that is famous among our circle of friends and family. Long before we started Husbands That Cook, we used to bring these glorious fudgy squares to every dinner party and birthday celebration, and they always stole the show, so it was clear that this beloved recipe had to appear first on our site. So in honor of our sixth blog birthday, we have a sweet surprise for you.

One of the most popular posts on Husbands That Cook is our Ube Cake with Vanilla Marshmallow Cream. We fell in love with ube the first time we tried it in the form of a creamy ube milkshake at a local restaurant here in Eagle Rock. As soon as we got home, we headed to the kitchen and figured out how to turn this vibrant root vegetable into a beautiful cake. Ube is a Filipino purple yam, and its sweet, nutty flavor is used in many desserts and traditional confections. Today we are featuring it in the form of these adorable ube whoopie pies. With their striking color and distinct ube flavor, your friends will be mesmerized when you set a platter of these tantalizing treats on the table. Let us show you how the magic happens…

Our living room is glowing. Yes, this holiday season is going to feel very different, but we are making the best of it: playing Christmas music on repeat and sipping bourbon cream as we hang colorful decorations around the house. And even though we’ve been a couple for almost two decades, this will be the first Christmas tree we’ve ever put up together. Normally in December we fly to Portland, Oregon to visit Ryan’s family, but since we won’t be traveling anytime soon, we wanted to re-create that welcoming, festive atmosphere here in our own home. So this year will have firsts for both of us: Ryan’s first Christmas away from his parents and brothers, and Adam’s first tree of his own, since he grew up celebrating Hanukkah, eating latkes and noodle kugel, and lighting the menorah instead. Well, right now the Husbands’ house is extra sparkly because this winter we are lighting up both. And since many families will be apart this season, we were inspired to create something special to try and make up for it. If we had to pick just one word to describe this heavenly treat, that word would be “cloud.” When you take one bite of this soft, cake-like cookie, you will understand exactly what we mean. Here to make everything merry and bright, would you please welcome this holiday hero, Gingerbread Whoopie Pies with Vanilla Marshmallow Cream.
