Black Bean Burgers

The burger that you are looking at here is a black bean burger that is just as delicious as a regular beef burger, guaranteed (unless you dislike meat- if so, then you’ll find that this one is way better!). Leah and I agree that it is silly to try to make vegetarian foods that clearly…

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…

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,…

Grilled Ratatouille Muffaletta Sandwich

Our family has a subscription to Martha Stewart Living Magazine,¬†and the two of us and our mom love it because it has beautiful things in it- gorgeous fashion tips, classy decor, and pictures with the most golden light you ever saw. They also make whipping up a fancy 3-course meal complete with a decorated tables…

Spicy Bean Burrito

I recently watched Julie & Julia for the first time, which is surprising considering it came out 4 years ago and it is a movie about cooking. While I wasn’t a huge fan of Julie (whiny and overly obsessed with Julia Child), I enjoyed the movie as a whole because Julia Child was pretty funny….

Caprese Pasta Salad

When I first became truly interested in cooking and trying out recipes from cookbooks, my favorite thing to make was super easy: a caprese sandwich that was from a Swedish cookbook, weirdly enough. It consisted of a ciabatta bun topped with a thin layer of mayonnaise (I know, not really a traditional caprese flavor), lettuce,…

Feta, Roasted Red Pepper, and Spinach Pizza

If you haven’t been able to tell before, we love pizza. If it’s good pizza, we wouldn’t mind eating it every day. It’s always fun to try new variations on the classic pizza (even though that doesn’t need much improvement). So, here is our latest pizza creation: a crisp pizza crust topped with a super…

Spinoccoli Pizza

This pizza has been on our to-make list (well, 8 page document of recipe links…) for quite a while now. We finally got around to making it as one of our last vegetarian meals for Lent. It turned out to be spectacular, ranking up there with Grandma pizza (please, please make this as soon as…

Chicago-Style Deep-Dish Pizza

We’ve never been to Chicago before, so the deep-dish pizza we’ve been limited to has been from Uno Chicago Grill. It is pretty yummy, but it is super expensive for the amount of pizza that you get. Also, never, ever look up the nutrition facts like we did. It will ruin you for their pizza…

Soft Pretzel Bites with Roasted Jalapeno Cheese Sauce

If there’s anything better than tortilla chips with cheese dip, it’s pretzels. And when you take warm-out-of-the-oven homemade soft pretzels and pair them with a spicy and cheesy sauce, you have something monumental, and we are here to tell you about it. Roasting jalapeno peppers brings out the best of their flavor, and they are…
