  • Smoked Peanut Butter & Jelly Ice Cream

    Have you ever had an idea that you thought could be good, then when you finally manifested it, it turned out to be shockingly better than you ever thought? Have you ever been so taken off guard by the deliciousness of something you prepared that all you can do is keep tasting it, wondering how […]

  • Smashed Raspberry Grilled Cheese

    Our challenge of savory seasonal eating continues! Raspberry season is upon us, and we quickly discovered through our research process that there’s not a whole lot of savory raspberry recipes out there, which we found simultaneously disappointing and alluring. We found plenty of jams, jellies, cookies, pavlovas (Christ, so many pavlovas) and cakes, but no […]

  • Fresh Strawberry Ice Cream

    Oregon’s berry bounty is impressive, especially in the summer. Wave after wave of variety comes into its own and it can seem overwhelming when the time comes to choose which one to work with, but after much deliberation, Nate and I think that we’ve finally decided on what our favorite is. Is it the plentiful, […]

  • Cookies & Cream Grows Up

    This monstrosity was borne out of wondering what to make for National Ice Cream Day. There were two schools of thought at first. I was thoroughly excited about making our very first chocolate ice cream, while Nate had his eye on experimenting with a cookies ’n’ cream. The time came to when we were wandering […]

  • Peanut Butter and Jelly French Toast

    As we play our way through Dragon Age Inquisition for the first time, I have to say that it puts us in a rather aggressive mindset. We feel the urge to go forth and conquer things and conform them to our ideologies for the sake of the “greater good.” We have applied such schools of […]

  • Salty Peanut Butter Sundae

    WARNING: Do not make this recipe. If you make ice cream and realize how ridiculously easy it is to make, you won’t stop. We certainly haven’t. That said, we love us some peanut butter. There was this time where we were eating only low-fat protein and veggies, and on a whim we ate a spoonful […]

  • Salted Dark Chocolate Mousse

    We don’t spring for sweet things often. Like, ever. But when we do, it usually involves chocolate or peanut butter. We are excited to introduce our first dessert, which involves a healthy amount of delicious chocolate and super sexy sea salt. Mousse is a basic dessert that’s easy to make at home (with or without an […]

  • Lemon Basil Lasagna

    Sometimes, we like to go all out on a meal. Lasagna is one of those meals. We know we’ve been posting some quick recipes that you can make on a typical weeknight, but this one—this one is for the weekend. Lasagna is a production, especially if you’re making (almost) everything from scratch. For this we […]

  • Chicken Marsala with Fettuccine

    Relatively quick and easy. Complex, rich, savory, and sweet. It’s hard to keep track of how many times we have made this recipe. It’s our standard cream sauce pasta dish, giving the boot to the run-of-the-mill fettuccine alfredo. You won’t find anything out of the ordinary with this recipe. It’s just really really good. Oh, […]

  • Pasta alla Carbonara

    “You don’t need expensive equipment to make pasta. All you need is a rolling pin and a sharp knife, and you’re good to go.” Pasta alla carbonara is one of the easiest in the pasta canon, complete with echoes of the all-American breakfast: bacon and eggs. It is a great dish that finds a great […]
