Crackers topped with Brie and Blackberry Compote

It’s only fairly recently that I (Leah) discovered that I actually like brie, especially brie and fruit (probably thanks to these sandwiches). Since I’m not a huge fan of cheese, I kind of turned my nose up at cheese paired with fruit when I was little. However, I have luckily realized that creamy, slightly salty…

Nutella Frosting

I can’t believe that the first week of August is over! This summer has been flying by, and we’ll be leaving for college in 18 short days. 18 days is not enough time to buy everything we need and, of course, cook our way through our “make-before-college” list. Well, hopefully everything that needs to get…

Roasted Strawberry Buttermilk Ice Cream

Leah and I were browsing in Williams-Sonoma recently (which we shamelessly acknowledge is our favorite store) and happened upon Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams at Home. It looked fabulous, and we’d heard great things about the book. We were out of cash at the moment since it was our last stop at the mall, but you…

Flourless Chocolate Cookies

If you’re looking for a gluten-free cookie that doesn’t require expensive or difficult-to-find flour substitutions, you’ve come to the right place! These cookies are super fudgy, with chewy-crisp edges. The sea salt brings them over the top. The beauty about these cookies really is the pure chocolate flavor that comes through. They reminded us of…

2013’s Best Recipes

Happy New Year! It’s been a great year over here on We Like Two Cook. Thank you all so much for stopping by and reading. Since our blog is fairly small, we truly appreciate everyone who checks out what we are posting. We’ve enjoyed a lot of really amazing food in our house this year,…

Brioche Burger Buns

I’m of the opinion that really great sandwiches are all about the bread. Floppy, flavorless bread is a sure way to ruin a delicious sandwich. Maybe that’s just me, though, because I usually like the bread more than the sandwich fillings. I also think that great burgers need to start with a delicious bun. There’s…

Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies with Cranberries and White Chocolate

We have been trying to find a perfect pumpkin cookie recipe for about four autumns now and most recipes have sort of failed. Because pumpkin is such a wet ingredient, it is difficult to incorporate it into cookie dough without ruining the texture and turning the cookies into little cakes (which still can taste good,…

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,…

S’more Granola Bars

Is it just us, or are most store-bought granola bars not that good? Some are waaaay too sweet, and there are others that taste like you are eating a bar of oats and nuts only (well, you kind of are). Most of them have some serious texture problems too. Super crunchy, or fall-apart soft. Yuck….
