Chocolate Silk Pie

Dusting off the blog again…there, that’s better! We didn’t mean to go a month without posting, but it’s inevitable when your brothers graduate high school and then the rest of your family moves an hour and a half away (we’re staying in our area for now to work, but we’ll join them in mid-August before…

Raspberry Lemon Bars

You may have noticed before that we love the raspberry and lemon combination! Maybe it’s partially the fact that maroon and gold are our school colors, but the delicious sweet, tart, fresh taste is probably what keeps us coming back. These bars in particular are probably one of our all-time favorite desserts. The filling 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…

Spice Cupcakes with Brown Butter Cream Cheese Frosting

(Please excuse the picture quality! My beloved camera’s memory card slot is sadly broken, so in the meantime while I decide to fix/replace it, I’m just using my phone. This pic is from our Instagram account.) Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays! Leah and I are home from school after a busy and productive semester. We are thrilled…

We Made a Wedding Cake!

Say hello to our biggest baking project so far! Our dad referred to it as our magnum opus. About a month ago, some family friends approached us to see if we’d be interested in making their wedding cake. We jumped at the opportunity- even though we probably should’ve considered the amount of work involved first!…

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…

Raspberry Chocolate Layer Cake

Sorry for all the silence here recently! The summer has been flying by and we haven’t had quite as much time to cook and blog as we like. Since we’re both recovering from wisdom tooth surgery this week, it’s the perfect time for us to share some recipes that we’ve neglected to post about. Anyway,…
