Zucchini, Corn, and Poblano Tacos with Roasted Tomatillo Salsa

One of our favorite meals ever!Β  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…

Caprese Skewers with Garlic Crostini

Happy New Year! We hope that everyone had a great 2015 and is looking forward to the new opportunities and adventures of 2016! While neither of us are the most ardent New Year’s resolution-ers, we always have the goal of eating more mindfully, particularly fresh food (sometimes this goal is achieved better than at other…

Italian Hoagies

An Italian hoagie, as we call such a sandwich in our area, is one of our favorite sandwiches of all time, when done right. You have chewy and delicious bread, a great place to start for any sandwich, topped with flavorful meats, provolone cheese, crisp lettuce, tomato and red onion. The whole thing is capped…

Kale Caesar Salad

I first became acquainted with the world of kale raw, in salads, at an awesome place called Sweetgreen. The Kale Caesar salad is nothing short of amazing- creamy Caesar dressing, freshly grated Parmesan cheese, Parmesan crisps, chopped tomatoes, chicken, and of course, kale. I could eat that salad any day! Leah and I recently recalled…

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…

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…

Greek Chicken Salad

I love chicken salad, as I’ve mentioned before.Β  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…
