Today, we are unveiling our beloved Blondie Cookie Pie. We have been perfecting this recipe since before we took off on our Europe trip. Amazing backpacking trip, that is. If you haven’t read about it yet, we went spent eighteen days in five different countries and it was the best! Read More
The classic Crème Chantilly—better known as whipped cream—came together so beautifully in our infamous 3-ingredient recipe that went viral on the blog last year. Our homemade Sweet Whipped Chantilly Cream is light & fluffy, ready to top or fill your favorite dessert. Any chance we get, we make a batch to top our healthy desserts or to dip fruit in. When we came across some beautiful vanilla bean pods at Trader Joe’s recently, we had to snag them and we knew we had to upgrade this recipe to Vanilla Bean Cream! Read More
At the back of my house, there are two lakes and the entrance to a privately owned forest. Each and every single day, I go out to what I call “the words” and walk about 5 miles. Before you ask, yes, I have permission to do this from the owners of the land. This is my way to work out. I do squats and lunges and jumping jacks, and; on days with lots of energy, I may even get down and do push ups. Read More
Just recently, we came across the most amazing discovery in the gluten-free section of one of our local grocery stores. We found gram crackers! Graham freaking crackers. We couldn’t even believe it. It seems like this company, S’moreables, has been around for a while but we had never seen this on the shelves. It wasn’t until we were down to half the box that we figured a good old home style Graham Cracker Piecrust was certainly in order. Read More
Whether we’re going on a long road trip or not, we look to stock up on different flavors of Larabar. These are not the most inexpensive protein bar on the market. We also like to stock up on Clifbar. And the same goes for those as well. One of my all-time favorite flavors has got to be banana nut, hands down. Hence, the fact that it’s my favorite fruit. Read More
binge watching updating ourselves on some much needed episodes of “How To Get Away Murder“. Been trying to get to the bottom of who killed Wes. If you haven’t started watching it yet, what are you waiting for? This is some of Viola Davis’ best stuff and she’s pretty darn awesome in everything she plays in already. Read More
My wife and I swoon at the thought of Mocha Pretzel Piecrust. For Christmas this past year, we made a Wintermint Pie. It was delicious. To die for. Candyland wonderland. Thanks for that I, we were able to come up with this practical cookie crunch recipe.
Mocha Pretzel Piecrust. Yum. It’s as chocolatey as an Oreo and as crunchy as one, too. But it’s healthy. And it’s a piecrust, nonetheless. Read More
How we wish we were in New Orleans right now hanging out in a balcony on Bourbon Street looking out at all the Mardi Gras celebrations taking place! We aren’t particularly fans of the scene going down on Bourbon-it’s freaking crazy out there-but it’s the best part of French Quarter to be at in order to enjoy the celebrations.
Trust me, we truly considered going this year for Mardi Gras because our friends, Angie and Marius, from Anchorage, Alaska invited us to join them. We think about it every year but their invitation was pretty convincing. Unfortunately, a huge assignment came through for me that I have to travel for so this Upside Down Passionfruit Pie is just going to have to bring Mardi Gras home to us. Read More
Shots! Shots! Shots! Shots! Shots! Everybooooody. Shots!
Lo and behold, we’re letting the good times roll with these heavenly King Cake Pudding Shots. You can make them virgin by excluding the deliciously perfect Pinnacle vodka with the flavor inspired by King Cake, the infamous celebratory Mardi Gras cake. Read More
It feels good to be home. A sense of appreciation for the true homeyness rushes back to me as I walk in the door. I was out of town all week long. Intense ass interpreting assignment hit the books and I decided to take it. That was a good call. I enjoyed every single minute of it but missed my home twice as much in the background. With Strawberries & Cream Shots on my mind, I made it home yesterday with a mission to complete. Read More
