Summer Sweet Tooth Fix: Peach + Plum Galette

posted on June 22nd, 2018 by Leslie Thomas

Don’t forget to enter our #BFGetPeachy Peach dessert contest for your chance to win a $500 gift card! Details here! How is it that during the hottest months of the year, when one is supposed to wear the least amount of clothing, such delicious food like BBQ and fruit pies are so religiously celebrated? It's not exactly fair if you ask us. But alas, the best fruit pies and all the delectable pulled pork, brisket, burgers, and brats shall be eaten. Because, summer. One of our favorite (not-beach-body-approved) recipes has got to be for the trusty, never fails, fruit galette. Easier than pie...and without that second layer of crust (so a wee bit healthier, right?!), the fruit really has a chance to shine - both in the beautiful appearance of the finished product and of course, the bold, perfectly sweet, fruit flavors. This Peach + Plum Galette combines two stone fruits that honestly, make us swoon. And if making the pie dough just seems like a harder task than what you want… Read More

Spring Matzo Kugel By a Meal and a Spiel

posted on March 27th, 2018 by Leslie Thomas

We are so excited to share a recipe from the very awesome Los Angeles cooking school, Meal and a Spiel! It's perfect for Passover, breakfast the morning after, and leftovers following that! You simply will love this recipe that so beautifully embodies Spring! *** Most savory kugels call for at least twice as many eggs as I use and twice as much matzah. However the notion of eating all that AFTER the Hillel sandwiches, AFTER the gefilte fish, AFTER the matzo ball soup is just too much. We are celebrating liberation from slavery- let’s not re-enslave ourselves with a matzah-rock of indigestion! Light and refreshing, this matzo kugel rings the flavors of spring. A combination of onions, vegetables and herbs are used to accentuate the flavors that will embody Spring at your Passover table, far beyond the parsley on your seder plate. By all means, this makes a wonderful dish to eat throughout the week of Passover. It’s like a frittata with less eggs, so try it for breakfast… Read More

posted on March 12th, 2018 by Leslie Thomas

Hooray - St. Patrick's Day is on a Saturday this year! And while many of us will be celebrating the festive holiday with the kids by way of wearing green and obliging to some shamrock arts and crafts, some of us just may find the time to sneak in an Irish Coffee (or two). And then of course, there's those of us with no little ones to attend to who can celebrate in real Irish style. Whatever the case, one thing's for certain; this Irish Coffee with Spiked Whipped Cream is absolutely delicious...and maybe a little dangerous too.

Carnitas Street Tacos

posted on January 18th, 2018 by Leslie Thomas

We are without a doubt, living in the land where tacos rank supreme. With street-style taco shops and trucks at very corner, the competition is stiff - which most of the time, means amazing tacos that you just can't get anywhere else (besides Mexico, of course). But sometimes it's fun to plan an elaborate taco night at home. Side note: Remember when taco dinner box kits were a weekly "indulgence"? Oh, nostalgia. We'll leave those taco kits in the past though. Because crafting up cantina tacos at home really isn't that difficult. Short-cuts make it even easier too. Here's our simple recipe for carnitas tacos that is a sure bet, every time. Carnitas Tacos Ingredients: 2 lb pork shoulder Juice from two limes 1 onion, thinly sliced 1 tablespoon salt 1/2 tablespoon chili powder 1 teaspoon cumin 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano 2 cups chicken stock, divided 1/2 cup cooking oil, divided For building tacos: corn tortillas finely shredded purple… Read More

Meal Prep Like a Pro in 2018

posted on January 16th, 2018 by Leslie Thomas

We get it; takeout and processed foods are just so much easier. Cooking a wholesome meal is sometimes the last thing we have time for. You’ve probably heard of meal prepping - it’s a health trend that got popular a few years ago and has stuck around - for good reason. Meal prepping makes eating healthy easy and quick, week after week. But there’s a misconception about the trend - you don’t have to eat the same thing everyday. You can absolutely mix-and-match your meals with just a few variations in sauces, toppings, and sides. That way it never gets boring and it's easier to stay on track. All is takes is some patience in the kitchen and just a couple of hours (3 hours, max if you're not much of a cook) and you've got a week's worth of healthy lunch and dinners that won't break the bank or upset your taste buds either. We suggest going through the meal prep on Sundays, when you're least likely to have work or social obligations. So go grab your favorite glass… Read More
