When it’s cold out, our ideal mornings are filled with warm cinnamon buns fresh from the oven, savory breakfast burritos, and steaming hot lattes that keep us cozy from the inside out. Unfortunately, this dream breakfast would also make us want to immediately crawl back in bed so we can hibernate while we digest. That’s
We grew up watching QVC with our parents for hours on end, and always knew that around the holidays we’d get tons of QVC packages delivered to our door, but it’s been a minute since we checked in with our fave televised shopping network. Well, it turns out that they’re still killing it. Most recently,
We’ve never cooked so many meals at home for so long, and though we’ve loved the opportunity to master the recipes of some of our favorite chefs, like Ina Garten, Martha Stewart, and Giada De Laurentiis, sometimes we just want a tasty shortcut. A lot of times, it’s not even the cooking itself that starts
There’s a reason why our freezer and fridge are always stocked with chicken. It’s versatile, healthy, and affordable, but we have to admit that sometimes it can be a bit boring. There’s only so many times we can have chicken tenders, pan-fried chicken breast, or roasted chicken thighs before we start to crave some more
We are all about creating the coziest environment possible for ourselves during the cold and brisk winter months, whether that means stocking up on luxurious throw blankets, taking a hot bath every now and then, or treating ourselves to some truly divine comfort food. But you know how you can make your life this winter
Now that the new year is here, we’re looking to revamp our recipes to feature more veggies, lean proteins, and healthy fats. But as with all resolutions, it’s best to take a healthy eating resolution slow, so you don’t risk burning out and turning back to your never-fail meals of microwaved mac and cheese and
We love cooking almost as much as we love eating (almost) but meal planning is another entity entirely. It’s hard to make the time to sit down to plan out what we’re eating in the next week, and there are nights when it’s just easier to pop a frozen meal from Trader Joe’s into the
Is there anything cozier than waking up on the weekend and enjoying a fresh, fluffy cinnamon roll, straight from the oven? That’s a rhetorical question, because of course the answer is no! Nothing is cozier than that. The key to making this dream a reality is planning ahead, and Martha Stewart‘s make-ahead cinnamon rolls do
If you’re trying to add a little more nutrition to your meals in the new year, you’re not alone. But cooking in a new way and focusing on fresher ingredients and recipes can be a little overwhelming at first. That’s why we’re totally drooling over this Giada De Laurentiis Meal Prep Italian Chicken Salad Lettuce
After a season of cookie making, roast baking, and all-around decadence, we’re starting to crave the unthinkable: vegetables. In the new year we’re always ready to readjust our weekly menus to start incorporating more fresh produce again, but when it’s so cold out, it can be hard to find veggie-filled meals that still seem satisfying.
It’s almost New Year’s, and we’ve been looking for the perfect meal to usher in 2021. Initially, we were thinking about making Ina Garten’s easy but decadent lemon cappellini with caviar (yes, caviar), but honestly, we’re not sure we feel like even turning on the stove this year. Thankfully, the Barefoot Contessa has another suggestion.
We absolutely love the holiday season, but we can’t be the only ones who feel like they haven’t eaten a vegetable since October. We’ve been indulging in holiday favorites, which has been a wonderful treat, but we’re ready to slowly transition to some fresher meals. Martha Stewart‘s one-pot braised chicken with veggies is the perfect
This year has been a lot to deal with, and we’re not trying to make the holidays any more stressful than they need to be. That means we’re relying on simple but oh-so-satisfying recipes to get us through, from Ina Garten’s one cookie dough five ways to peppermint bark that’s so cute, we’re giving it
When it comes to our holiday meals, we spend most of our time and energy planning the entree, side dishes, and dessert. It seems to make sense until we actually have guests over, the smell of the roast is filling the air, and there’s still two hours until meal time and everyone’s getting hangry. The
For us, the holidays are all about cooking, but what if you can’t actually be with your loved ones this year to cook for them in person? Our solution is edible gifts that can be dropped on friends’ doorsteps or shipped in the mail to family members near and far. And who knows more about
Most of our holiday celebrations revolve around food, from Christmas cookies (we love Ina Garten’s one dough, five cookies recipe) to rich and cozy comfort food meals, so we spend a lot of time at the dining room table each December. We love to decorate the table with a nice centerpiece, but since we’re spending
We’re always looking for ways to make the holidays feel special, and that’s especially true in 2020. Since many of us won’t be able to spend the holidays with the family and friends we usually see this time of year, we’re trying to think of ways to make our smaller gatherings feel festive, and this
We’re not food snobs around these parts – Kraft mac and cheese in a box (or, let’s be real, the Target brand) is a regular staple, and we always have some in the pantry. But we also acknowledge that sometimes easiest isn’t always best, and when we’re really craving cozy comfort food, we like to
We love a bargain, but we learned a long time ago that when it comes to cooking, there are a few items that are definitely worth splurging on. Ina Garten taught us the importance of good vanilla, French sea salt, and Le Creuset, but it turns out, there’s something we were missing. Good Italian ingredients!
We’ve been eating grilled cheese since we were kids, and the recipe usually went a little something like this: butter two slices of Wonderbread, add a slice of Kraft American cheese, toast in a pan, and call it a day. We’re not saying that such a simple, nostalgic meal isn’t good eats, but now that
