Scallops Provençal

This recipe is the first time that we enjoyed scallops! Our mom has made the mistake in the past of buying scallops from the normal grocery store, which are extremely nasty- fishy and gross. To be honest, we never even tried them because they made the house smell disgusting. And to people like us who…

Raspberry Black and White Cake

This cake is a miracle, and I will tell you why. We had grand plans of making a raspberry mousse filling but ended up with chocolate sour cream frosting. This was unintentional. See, the whipped cream was stabilized with gelatin, which never thickened properly. We went along with the directions, however, but after only a…

Melted Cheese and Chorizo Dip

We finally succumbed to one of the recent food trends…chorizo. Neither of us really understand the point of food trends, because anything can taste good at any time. Cupcakes are still awesome, for those who say that the craze is over, fancy tacos were great 5 years ago, and pies, well, even our founding fathers…

Double Cookie Dough Ice Cream

What is your favorite flavor of ice cream? I like pretty much all flavors, and it usually depends on where my ice cream is from, but I consistently love coffee and mint chocolate chip- not together, of course! Cookie dough has never really been my favorite flavor. It’s good, but it has always seemed a…

Sweet Corn Cakes with Tomato-Avocado Relish

Sometimes I wonder what my favorite fruit is, and then it comes to me- avocado! I love it in guacamole best, but most recipes that have it are great! Although I recently saw bloggers make cookies and pudding with avocado, and I am not too sure about those…I question such a choice (there is no way…

The Best Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

I (Celine) recently started a volunteer job at the library for the summer. While I don’t earn anything for helping out there (obviously, because of the word volunteer), it has been rewarding anyway! The library is a great place to work on a hot summer day because it’s very well air-conditioned, peaceful, and the work…

Tomato Mozzarella Basil Tart

You may remember that we love pizza. There are quite a few recipes on here for pizza considering how this blog is young (but it’s growing up fast-it will be a year old in September!) and we don’t have a lot of recipes overall compared to older veteran blogs. This tart is pizza in, well,…

Scrambled Eggs with Spinach and Parmesan

A lot of egg-based breakfasts call for either sunny-side-up or fried eggs (like this breakfast sandwich), but a couple of people in our family are not fans of runny yolks. We usually remedy this by using egg whites, but that causes the problem of wasting yolks. It’s nice to find an interesting breakfast dish that…

Dulce de Leche Ice Cream

Good ice cream is a spectacular thing for sure. Ice cream is so simple and delicious! We’ve had an ice cream maker for 3 years now but have probably only made homemade ice cream a handful of times, which is sad. Very rarely was it worth the effort anyway. A lot of the time we…

Grilled Chicken Panzanella with Cucumber and Feta

I have to be completely honest…I, Celine, do not like tomatoes or cucumbers, and I only like feta in very small amounts. Yet here I am, writing a blog post about a recipe that involves all three! I surprised myself by loving this meal. A panzanella is a bread salad, which is a very fantastic…
