Tom Douglas Coconut Cream Pie

Tom Douglas Coconut Cream Pie

I made this stunning coconut cream (creme?) pie— the pictures really don’t do it justice— a few months back for our third anniversary. This is the dessert that we ate the night we got engaged during our visit to Seattle. I found the recipe not too long after that, and I’ve planned to make it…

Strawberry Basil Lemonade

Strawberry Basil Lemonade

It’s been an incredibly long time since I’ve posted anything. Life just got busy. Currently I have 30 drafts of recipes that we made before this slump occurred, so it’s not for a lack of having something to write about or creativity, but writing for “fun” was really the last thing on my mind. Between…

The Epic Best Breakfast Sandwich

The Epic Best Breakfast Sandwich

It’s been so long since we’ve Wafoodied. Busy busy busy. But how better to make a triumphant return than to present you with this epic breakfast sandwich. We’ve found a local coffee joint that we love, and one day we tried their breakfast sandwich. Our version is a twist on theirs leaning on a few great…

Lemon Lavender Scones

Lemon Lavender Scones

Last time we visited Temecula, I visited the lavender store and bought food-grade lavender. The perfect pairing for lavender is lemon, so I added them both into a delicious buttermilk scone. Coffee, scones, and working on a crossword is pretty much the perfect way to start off a weekend, especially Easter weekend which is coming…

Smoked Chocolate Lava Cakes

Smoked Chocolate Lava Cakes

I can’t believe it’s been nearly a month since I’ve blogged. It’s not that I don’t have anything to talk about. In fact, I have a huge backlog of recipes I fully intend to write about. But getting a PhD is a lot of work (in case you haven’t heard). Any free time I get,…

Red Velvet Cookies

Red Velvet Cookies

Happy Valentine’s Day! We’re having a lazy morning (with fresh squeezed blood orange juice) followed by a brewery visit and (apparently amazing) pastrami sandwiches for lunch. Tonight we are celebrating by going downtown to watch the Kings play win. Last night we celebrated by making the most delicious pizza we’ve ever created at home using…

Mini Chocolate Covered Cacao Nib Cookies

Mini Chocolate Covered Cacao Nib Cookies

When we visited Boston a few months back, we toured (and devoured lots of chocolate) at this wonderful chocolate factory called Taza. In addition to more traditional chocolates, they make a Mexican inspired chocolate with a really unique, kind of grainy (but definitely not in a bad way) dark chocolate. We came home with many…

Edamame Soup

Edamame Soup

This soup is the perfect use for the leftover créme fraîche from the mussels in cider. I’m a big fan of edamame, but it is typically one of those things I only eat if it comes gratis with the sushi we’ve ordered (as much as I enjoy edamame, I don’t think I could ever convince Dustin…

Mussels in Cider

Mussels in Cider

It’s been an incredibly long time since we’ve posted something. There just don’t seem to be enough hours in the day for work/school, creating and cooking new and interesting meals, writing about them, and sleeping. Trader Joe’s frozen meals and easy repeat meals have become a staple on our weekly menu. But we did make…

Everything Bagel Cheeseball

Everything Bagel Cheeseball

Making a homemade cheeseball is a fun and surprisingly easy appetizer. I can definitely see making this again for parties because it’s simple to prepare in advance. I liked the idea of rolling a cheeseball in all of the fun stuff you’d find on top of an everything bagel. Inside of all that good stuff is…
