Perfect French Toast

I have to be honest, with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top, this French toast could easily pass as dessert. This is our favorite recipe out there for French toast, although we rarely make it because it’s not a very healthy way to start the day! However, when we do make it, it…

Coconut Shrimp Tacos with Mango Pineapple Salsa and Sriracha Cream Sauce

Summer is almost over, and I have really mixed feelings about it this year. I’m actually a bit excited, because it’s senior year! However, I am also dreading writing tons of supplement essays and narrowing down the list of 30 colleges that I currently have (seriously, applying to that many schools would cost so much…

Peach Crumble Ice Cream

Are there any fruits that you just don’t like? For me (Leah) it would be honeydew, cantaloupe, and figs. We made a really promising looking fig cake the other day, and both of us decided we did not like them. They tasted sort of earthy, although not a nice kind of earthy. Sort of like…

Lemon Poppy Seed Pound Cake

Let me start off by saying that there is nothing that I love in the dessert world more than a warm chocolate chip cookie. But chocolate as a whole? I just don’t love it the way some people do. It’s good, of course, and I would never pass up a chocolate dessert, but I have…

Cannoli Ice Cream

Hello everyone! I know we just posted a frozen dessert on Wednesday, but this ice cream had to be posted. You will understand why if you make it! Cannoli are our favorite Italian pastry, without a doubt, and one of our favorite desserts. Isgro Pastries in Philadelphia is our favorite place to buy them. Their…

Watermelon Lime Granita

I don’t know about you, but where we live it has not been a hot and sunny summer! We’ve had quite a few humid and rainy days, scattered in with some nice weather, but it’s been 90 degrees only a couple days in the past month or two. So honestly, there has not been so…

French Baguettes

I’m not sure if I mentioned this before, but I (Leah) really enjoyed chemistry at school, so much that I took AP Chem. Well, Celine also took the class, but I quote directly from her, “after the happy honeymoon period of the first couple classes ended, I was done for the whole year.” Well, she…

Everything Burgers

Nope, these burgers have nothing to do with everything bagels. They are simply topped with, well, everything. Let’s make a list: you start with a homemade bun and then you top the bun with quick garlic aioli, lettuce, sliced avocado, a burger patty, cheese (any kind you like), homemade pickles that take about five minutes…

Grilled Corn Guacamole

As we have mentioned before, guacamole is definitely one of our favorite foods to make at home. It’s WAY better than most kinds that you can buy at the store. While we will never get tired of plain old guacamole, it’s also fun to try a new version. We love corn when it’s in season,…

White Chocolate Pudding with Strawberry Curd

While pudding is a year-round dessert, this pudding is definitely perfect for summer! The strawberry curd on top of this pudding is like nothing I’ve ever had before, yet it somehow has the familiar texture and faint flavor of lemon curd. It is unbelievably good! The curd would go nicely inside a cupcake, drizzled over…

Sun Dried Tomato and Artichoke Dip with Homemade Bagel Chips

I’ve been thinking about my college essay a lot lately. Probably because the Common App opened yesterday. For those who don’t know, the Common App is a website that allows you to easily apply online to hundreds of colleges. There’s a standard essay, but most colleges also have supplemental essays as well. The issue with…
