It’s beginning to look a lot like autumn. The weather in L.A. is finally cool enough to open the windows and let a fresh breeze flow through our house. The constant low rumbling of the air conditioner which hums all summer long is now replaced with sounds from outside: birds singing, bees buzzing, and distant echos of the high school marching band practicing for their homecoming game. This morning, it was even chilly enough to wear robes for the first time in months. So as we watch the peaches and tomatoes of August magically transform into pumpkins and apples, we tip our hats farewell to summer and pop a cork to this brand new season. You’ll want to break out your finest bubbly for this beauty that we’re sharing today—we certainly did after taking our first bite. Will you please welcome to the stage… Apple Brown Butter Whoopie Pies with Chai Marshmallow Cream. And yes, they are just as dreamy as they sound!

“The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science.” —Albert Einstein

We’re going to keep this post short and sweet. When Lily Diamond nominated us to participate in Natasha Feldman’s Nosh with Tash Mystery Box, we were honored and immediately said yes. Natasha sent 3 people (us, Kristan Raines, and Ria Dolly Barbosa) a colorfully decorated Mystery Box containing 3 secret ingredients, and we were asked to create an original recipe using all three. Inspired by the contents in our box—fresh limes, dried cherries, and coconut milk—we came up with (drum roll please)… Cherry Lime Bars! Get the full recipe below, follow our Instagram Stories today as we show you how to make these creamy vegan treats, and check out the hashtag #mysterynosh to see what the other recipients made with their boxes. To keep the food festivities going, we’re nominating our friend, Kylie Mazon-Chambers to receive the next mystery mailing. Happy Sunday and happy baking, everyone!

kauai recap: a week in paradise

This post was created in partnership with The Westin Princeville Ocean Resort Villas. All opinions are our own.

Every time we visit Kauai, we seriously consider moving there. Don’t get us wrong, we love our house and garden here in Eagle Rock, but there’s something enchanting about the idea of living in the tropics—just steps away from the beach, with ocean breezes blowing through our hair as we sip coconuts, eat fresh pineapples, and watch the waves all day. We’ve been home for just over a week and already dreaming about our next trip.

pumpkin chocolate chip cookies

So we mayyy have stayed out a little too late last night. And we mayyy have had a few too many drinks considering that today was a show day. But we do have a good excuse! Last night, we attended a fun foodie event hosted by The Feedfeed and Simply Organic, held at the magical Hedley and Bennett headquarters in Vernon, California about 30 minutes from our home. As we arrived, each guest was handed an envelope containing a unique spice—Ryan’s was filled with dried rosemary, and Adam’s packet had bright yellow curry powder. Everyone split up into groups according to the ingredient they received, and together we all cooked an epic meal! There were half a dozen stations set up with electric stovetops, food processors, and freshly prepped ingredients, and each group was responsible for a different course. It was great to meet new people in the community and bond with them while making dinner together: Adam’s group prepared a delicious curried butternut squash soup, while Ryan’s table mixed up a creamy hummus topped with rosemary-balsamic roasted carrots. There were over a hundred other bloggers in attendance, and there was plenty of food and wine for everyone. Plus, there mayyy have been an after-party (complete with Zombies) in the Tiki lounge at Clifton’s with our friends Christine, Becky, and Tommy, meaning we didn’t get home until well after midnight. Even though we stayed in bed till ten o’clock this morning and our Gravy live show, Mix It Up With Husbands That Cook started at 11am, we made it just in time. The episode from this morning is now archived on our show page, so you’ll be able to see our performance—despite the fact that a few hours prior, we were in no shape to host a live cooking show. But the episode was a success! Not only did Sylvia make a surprise guest appearance (we cleared it with her agent first), but we whipped up a batch of these melt-in-your-mouth pumpkin chocolate chip cookies that just so happen to be vegan as well. Perfect for all your Halloween parties, please meet your new go-to fall cookie recipe.
