Sheet Pan Cauliflower Totchos

I’d be lying if I said I don’t have aspirations to own a food truck someday. Specifically, a food truck that serves totchos (tater tot nachos, obviously). I’d also be lying if I said I don’t already have a name picked out for my future totcho truck—but I can’t share that on the interwebs, because someone could run with it and makes millions off my … Continue reading Sheet Pan Cauliflower Totchos

Spicy Tuna Guacamole

Cinco de Mayo is upon us! We’re kicking off a week of Mexican-inspired recipes with our absolute fav: GUAC. *swoon* Jose Pistola’s is one of our favorite Mexican restaurants in Philly, and that’s largely due to their incredible spicy tuna guacamole.

Salted Caramel Almond Butter Cups

Nut butter cups have been taking our IG feed by storm lately, so we’ve been itching to come up with a creation of our own.

I … Continue reading Salted Caramel Almond Butter Cups

So naturally, we set out on a mission to make a healthier, guilt-free version of this must-have treat. And … Continue reading Healthy Peanut Butter Eggs

Green Goddess Dip

Even if the weather in Philadelphia still says winter, we’re officially getting into the swing of spring! What better way to start than with a colorful platter full of veggies and a dip packed with fresh herbs? We recently had dinner at one of Stephen Starr’s newest Philadelphia restaurants, The Love, and were so into their Green Goddess Dip + Crudités appetizer that we just … Continue reading Green Goddess Dip

Goldie Copycat: Vegan Tehina Shake

Hopefully, if you live in Philadelphia, you have experienced the pure deliciousness that is Goldie Falafel and their tehina shakes. Michael Solomonov is the chef behind Goldie (among other Philly-favorite restaurants) and a local legend among us foodies. I’m fortunate enough to work around the corner from Goldie (aka The Danger Zone) but have been determined to replicate these shakes at home to save some … Continue reading Goldie Copycat: Vegan Tehina Shake
