Maine 2021

Eastern Promenade, Portland, ME We haven't had a travel post in a really long, well, because we haven't gone anywhere in a long time! Thanks global pandemic. Remember back in March of 2020, when there were a few days where no one knew what to do or what was going to happen? It seemed like... Continue Reading →

Blackberry Shrub

I am a vinegar lover, but if you're not, this might not be the drink for you. Both my dad and Selim were not fans, thinking it was too sharp. But I found it refreshing and a delicious summer drink! While you do need to start making it about a full week in advance, it... Continue Reading →

Muzzie’s Dip

I've been trying and coming up short of what exactly to write for this post. So let me start by copying and pasting what I wrote on social media not long after her death. Yesterday, we celebrated the life of my amazing grandmother. She was a mother to seven, grandmother to 23, and great-grandmother to... Continue Reading →

Good Riddance 2020

Every year, we write a round-up of our culinary adventures on this blog, looking back over the past year. We all know, 2020 was pretty much the worst. That reflected on the blog too. Bogged down by everything else that was going on, we didn't cook as much as we wanted to, and we certainly... Continue Reading →

Thanksgiving 2020

Thanksgiving doesn't quite look the same this year. To finish up this tough year, the United States appears to be climbing its worst wave of COVID infections of the pandemic, just in time for the holidays. For Thanksgiving this year, we're staying at home and eating just with ourselves. We've embraced our new reality this... Continue Reading →

Crispy Duck Legs

When I shared my pictures and opinions of this recipe in the Kitchn's Cookbook Club Facebook group, my post started with, "Yall. Run and get some duck legs, so you can make the Crispy Duck Legs!" And now I'm telling anyone who reads this post the same! These are SO good. Honestly, I never thought... Continue Reading →

Parmesan Broth

We love to make flavorful broths and stocks. We usually save all of our meat bones (chicken, steaks, the whole Thanksgiving turkey!), keep them in the freezer until we have a bunch, and then periodically make a big batch of stock. We keep it in mason jar and use it for the next few weeks... Continue Reading →

Goodbye 2019!

Happy New Year! Another year of blogging down! As I always say this time of year, I'm proud of us for keeping up with Bon Appetit Baby! for another year. With pregnancy and new parenthood, we're still not blogging quite as much as we used to, but we're still here! This was a big year for us,... Continue Reading →

A Brand New Kitchen!

  One thing is for sure, 2019 has definitely not be the most prolific year of blogging for us! We already explained our absence in the late fall of last year and winter of this year. (For those who missed it, short version is: the first trimester and half of Ally's pregnancy involved a lot... Continue Reading →

Trip to Austin, TX

  This past week, we've been eating our way through Austin, Texas. We went on this fun trip with about a dozen other family members, to watch Ally's cousin Townley swim in his final collegiate meet for the University of Texas. Townley is an amazing swimmer - he swam for Team USA in the 2016... Continue Reading →
