Balsamic Roasted Strawberry Ice Cream

Balsamic Roasted Strawberry Ice Cream

Fudgy Vegan Brownies

Fudgy Vegan Brownies

The day before our son was born, we made these brownies. We had no idea that the next day, our lives would change forever. I had just interviewed my pal Laura Wright on our podcast, and she told me about these fantastic brownies from her new The First Mess cookbook that were vegan, gluten-free, and seriously fudgy. Intrigued, I made them that morning for a dinner party that evening. We gathered around the table with two dear couples and ate vegetarian gyros while their two-year-old sons ran around and threw dinosaurs to each other in our living room. We laughed and drank caipirinhas and ate fudgy vegan brownies. And like Laura promised, they were very, very fudgy (the kids loved them). The next day we woke up and over our morning coffee I glanced at my phone. It was a text from our birth mama: “Hey I’m in the hospital. They think I’m in labor.” Whhhhhhaaat?! Alex and I looked at each other. My heart went through the roof. We scrambled around the house packing a bag for the hospital (or, Alex packed and I paced in circles). Fast forward a few days and we were back from the hospital […]

Tart Cherry Chocolate Galette

Tart Cherry Chocolate Galette

This post was created in partnership with the Cherry Marketing Institute. All opinions are our own. Chocolate and cherries seem a romantic combination, no? With Valentine’s Day around the corner, we dreamed up this rustic cherry pie as a sweet treat to celebrate the day. A galette is a rustic pie: “rustic” meaning no pie plates or crimping needed. Instead, simply roll out the dough, spread on the filling, fold over the crust, and bake. Alex and I hadn’t made a galette in a while, and I was reminded of how simple it is. (Why don’t I remember to make galettes more often?) In this galette, Montmorency tart cherries make for a superb filling, combined with the sweetness of maple syrup, a bit of lemon for brightness, and just a hint of cinnamon and nutmeg. Drizzled with a bit of semi-sweet chocolate to finish, the star is our rye galette crust: flaky and lightly nutty from the rye flour. My favorite testimonial: we enjoyed the galette with some friends, who saved a piece for their 7-year-old the next day. I received a text in the morning that Eliza thought it was “spectacular”! (This also proves that you can eat leftovers […]
