Great Pizza

It seems that every time we post here on the blog these days, we lament that it has “been far too long!” The same is true this time around. Senior year has been the biggest whirlwind, but it has also been wonderful and so fun. We are keeping busy spending time with friends, periodically cooking…

Zucchini, Corn, and Poblano Tacos with Roasted Tomatillo Salsa

One of our favorite meals ever!ย  We’re not vegetarian, but we have a lot of fun cooking vegetable-based meals for our family. We lucked out because our parents and 2/4 brothers eat everything we make, and the boys don’t complain about having meat-free dinners. For us, one of our favorite parts about cooking vegetarian is…

Chipotle Shrimp Tacos with Avocado, Corn, and Tomato

We’re home for the summer and back in the kitchen! This semester went by far too quickly…it’s so strange to think that we began this blog at the onset of our junior year of high school, and now we’ll be college juniors in the fall. We’re approaching our 4-year blog anniversary (we need to bake…

Shakshuka

(iPhone shot from our Instagram. Characteristically, I accidentally left my real camera at school over Easter break!) Long time, no post! Despite the radio silence here over the last few months, we’ve still been enjoying great food and cooking whenever we get the chance (which, since we live in dorms without kitchens at school, isn’t…

Roasted Tomato, Kale and Feta Pizza

Freshman year of college is officially over! We moved back home this Tuesday. It feels good to be home, but we’re going to miss school and our friends who live throughout the country this summer- it’s certainly an adjustment going from being surrounded by thousands of other people your age to being with your family…

Feta Flatbread with Caramelized Onions and Roasted Red Peppers

Wow, are we bad at blog posting this summer! The first part of the summer compromised of working and babysitting a lot, while the past month has seemed to have evaporated away in the midst of shopping and otherwise preparing for college. We leave on Wednesday, which is hard to imagine! Leah and I are…

Grilled Caribbean Chicken with Couscous Salad

As much as I don’t like to admit this, I find it easy to get in cooking ruts. While the things I bake never really lack in variety, I feel like all the dinners I make are Italian, Greek, or Mexican. It’s a goal of mine to experiment with other kinds of cooking, like Asian,…

Grilled Chicken Fajitas

Celine and I don’t normally grill that much. While we both prefer burgers and chicken grilled, it can be a pain to stand over a hot grill trying to cook everything evenly. Also, I hate being enveloped in smoke after there is an inevitable flare-up. But, dare I say that my grilling skills are improving?…

Greek Pasta Salad

We only have two more days of being high school seniors! Saturday (graduation) we’ll be considered college freshmen instead. It still hasn’t really sunk in that I won’t be going to my high school anymore- we’ve been over there a bunch of times over the past two weeks for graduation practices and such, not to…

Spicy Macaroni and Cheese

I (Leah) used to hate macaroni and cheese, especially the boxed orange kind. I’ve mentioned before how I am not a huge fan of cheese on its own, and I used to be even worse about it when I was younger (yes, this is definitely an unpopular opinion). So, it’s not surprising that a dish…
