Eggnog Snickerdoodles

I know Christmas is over and most of you are probably no longer in Christmas baking mode, but I thought I’d share these cookies we made on Christmas Eve anyway just because they’re awesome! Snickerdoodles have always been one of my (Celine) favorite cookies. This eggnog-flavored version, which has nutmeg and rum extract to add…

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…

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…

Glazed Cranberry Lemon Cake

It feels so good to be home for Christmas! Getting back into the kitchen has been one of the best parts (and just being home in general!). Leah and I got home pretty late Wednesday night, and Thursday we looked around the kitchen to see what we had and noticed there was a bag of…

Midnight Pumpkin Layer Cake

Happy belated Thanksgiving! It’s been so long since we’ve published a blog post here. Since we left for college, we sadly have not had access to a kitchen (I can’t wait to be an upperclassmen when I have a kitchen in my dorm!). College has been going really well, but it was wonderful going home…

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…

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…

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Éclairs

One of the first “fancy” things Leah and I ever baked was a batch of cream puffs. I’m not sure how we made that selection, but I’m glad we did! Ever since, we’ve had a fondness for anything involving pâte à choux. When one of the blogs we follow posted a recipe for chocolate covered…

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,…

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…
