Meyer Lemon Pudding Cake

How is it possible that March is starting tomorrow? There are only two months of high school left, which feels crazy. This school year has just blown away with a gust of college essays, piles of homework, and hours spent at activities. We have a long Easter break and have a senior capstone (job shadowing)…

Balsamic-Braised Chicken with Swiss Chard (Crock Pot)

Our mom has a notorious history in our household of having crock pot failures. It’s not her fault, but our crock pot cooks things quicker than most, resulting in overcooked food, and the many (many) crock pot cookbooks she has are mostly not too great. However, she recently bought the America’s Test Kitchen Slow Cooker…

Banana Cupcakes with Nutella Buttercream Frosting

When we make cupcakes for our family, we typically pipe frosting on a few of them for blog pictures and then just spread it on with an icing spatula for the rest. Of course, when we are bringing cupcakes to an event, we pipe the frosting on all of them! While piping frosting itself is…

Greek Chicken Salad

I love chicken salad, as I’ve mentioned before.  It is a favorite quick and delicious lunch option in our house. We have made several variations on the classic, and this one is a particular favorite. No surprise there, since it’s inspired by Greek flavors. You make a tzatziki sauce to stir the chicken in, and…

Orange Ricotta Chocolate Chip Muffins

We are finally done our yearbook layouts for the year! I’m sure that we have mentioned it at one point or another, but the two of us and our friend Danielle comprise the senior section of the yearbook. For the past five months, we’ve been at yearbook for a couple of hours a day after…

Almond Poppy Seed Pancakes with Almond Cream Sauce

Hi everyone! Our electricity has been out since early Wednesday morning, which explains why we haven’t posted since Monday (no WiFi either). Our school has been cancelled for the past few days due to power outages as a result of ice, and on Monday we had a day off because of snow! I’m pretty sure…

Homemade Thin Mints

Leah and I were Brownies for about two weeks when we were little, and that has been the limit of our Girl Scouting experience. This does not mean we haven’t purchased an overpriced box or two of Girl Scout cookies now and then subsequently. I’ve spent far too much money on them and to be…

Greek Pita Pizzas

This pita pizza was supposed to be the subject of our very first blog post, but the picture was absolutely hideous. We never posted about it, and then we slowly forgot about it. Thankfully, we re-remembered it when we had a cucumber and some yogurt in the fridge this past week. I’m glad we did….
