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.

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.
Listen carefully. Those are the sounds of sparkling bubbles. We are clinking glasses and sipping something fizzy today because this new recipe deserves a celebration. We wanted to create a classic marinara sauce that is bold and memorable, so we tested and refined it until it was just right. Toss it with your favorite pasta, use it as a base for your next pizza night, and treat yourself to shakshuka the next morning with any leftover sauce. No matter how you decide to use it, this magic marinara is truly a classic. Also known as Husbands’ Marinara, we’d like to let you in on a few of our secrets.

Last month, Husbands That Cook turned 4! On April 29, 2015 we published the first two recipes on our website—Triple Chocolate Fudge Brownies and Penne with Zucchini and Lemon. If someone were to tell us back then that we would soon have our own cookbook, we wouldn’t have believed it for a second. What began as a hobby and a creative outlet where we could share recipes with our friends and family quickly turned into a full-time gig. In just 4 years, we’ve had opportunities to travel all across the US, learning about exotic flavors and inventive cooking techniques, and meeting so many new friends along the way. But one thing hasn’t changed since day one—we are still obsessed with pasta! So today, to celebrate our 4-year blog anniversary, we thought what better way to do it than with a vibrant summer pasta featuring fresh basil, garlic, and colorful heirloom tomatoes. Let us introduce you to our newest recipe: pasta d’estate—it’s as romantic as it sounds.

Spring is in full bloom here in Eagle Rock. It’s currently 72 degrees outside, our windows are open, the birds are singing… and a noisy gas-powered weed trimmer just started roaring from across the hill. Aside from the occasional noise distraction, it’s quiet where we live, and May is spectacular with patches of wildflowers popping up everywhere in deep shades of pinks, blues, and purples. To celebrate the season, today we’re sharing a Spring recipe that will make your taste buds blossom. If you’re searching for the perfect dish for Cinco de Mayo or Mother’s Day, or perhaps just a romantic evening for two, this savory spring galette is here to add a little more color and flavor to this vibrant time of year.
