hello, cinnamon vanilla almonds.

Hi again!  Sorry we haven’t blogged in a while, it is sometimes difficult to get three sisters in the same place.  With work, school, art, husbands, boyfriends and Guiliona, we all have our hands full.  But it is so very important to make the time for each other and create.  Anyway, here is a fun little recipe that we all enjoy.  We made a bunch of yummy batches for Christmas last year and received rave reviews.  Enjoy!

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.  Lightly whisk egg white then add 1 teaspoon of cold water and continue whisking until frothy.  Add 1 teaspoon of vanilla to the whisked egg.  (the eggs we use in all of our recipes are organic cage free and use local if you can!)

Add the nuts and mix until well coated.  Stir in both sugars, cinnamon, and salt until evenly coated.

Spread the nuts on an ungreased cookie sheet and roast for 20 to 30 minutes.  You know when you are at the public market on a Saturday morning and you smell that sweet scent in the air?  That is what your kitchen will smell like, sweet, cinnamony almonds.  yum. Keep an eye on them because they can burn easily.  The nuts will seem a bit sticky when they are ready to be taken out of the oven.  Spread on wax paper to cool.

Wrap up pretty to give as a gift or eat as a snack!  xoxo

p.s. along with organic cage free eggs, we use as much organic and local produce as we can and encourage you to do so as well.

hello, thanksgiving.

We wanted to share a taste of our Thanksgiving which included family, laughs and of course pie.  xoxo enjoy.

hello, vodka cream sauce.

In a large pot, cook butter and shallots at a medium heat for 3 minutes. Add minced garlic (the more the better), the red pepper and 2 teaspoons of salt to the simmering pot of deliciousness.  Warning: Your house is guaranteed to smell amazing!
 In a bowl, squish tomatoes with hands (it will be fun, promise!) and drain some of the liquid.
Add the tomatoes to the pan with your vodka (we didn’t have vodka one time, and it still came out great). Let the sauce cook for 20 minutes without a top (or more! The longer it cooks the better it tastes!). After your sauce cooks to your liking, add a cup of parmesan cheese and your little container of heavy cream.
Stir, and throw in the fresh basil, pepper (to taste) and salt… now go get your straw (we have pictures to prove this has been done).
For pasta, we chose to make homemade ravioli with a sun-dried tomato and goat cheese filling. We suggest you buy your favorite pasta if you don’t have a pasta roller. If you’re lucky enough to live near a Trader Joe’s they have an amazing sun-dried tomato ravioli!
Toast your baguettes, throw your favorite pasta on a dish and soak with too much sauce!  Yummm!

enjoy. xoxo

hello.

A few months ago the three of us sisters came together to discuss a common goal. A tribute to our wonderful grandmother, Mimi, the life of the party. It seemed so perfect that all of us in a way share a part of Mimi’s passions: a cook, a photographer and a stylist.  Here’s to the start of hello, scrumptious. A collaboration of art in it’s truest forms.
