Favorite Tools: Love of Ceramic Cookware

We never thought we’d be writing a post about ceramic pans. Honestly, we’ve always told everyone that if we had one pan to have in our kitchen it would be a cast iron skillet. There’s something so incredibly useful and fantastic about cooking in cast iron. The crust, the char, the quick pop in a […]

Pumpkin Swirl Chocolate Brownies

It’s been at least three years since we decorated for Halloween. Back-in-the-day we used to drive up to Los Olivos and go apple picking. We never failed to pick way more apples than two people and two dogs could consume.  When it comes to wandering in a grove of apple trees, armed with huge picking […]

Man are we ever ready for the warm weather to end. Longing for the days beyond t-shirt and shorts attire, it seems like every day we are biding our time and trying to find ways to stay cool and refreshed. Worst of all, we’re in for another big heat wave in Southern California before the […]

Butternut Squash Soup with Truffle Oil

Butternut Squash Soup

 There isn’t a squash  I love more than the beautiful butternut squash. Like most winter squashes, it shares similar flavors with it’s brethren the pumpkin, yet it seems to marry even better than most with the earthy flavors of mushrooms. Butternut has that perfect silky texture after being cooked. Its flesh is a gorgeous shade […]

A really good oatmeal cookie makes me into a cookie monster. I love them. I mean, really, really love them. In my top 10 favorite cookies, oatmeal cookies have a about half of the spots.  When they are soft, with those slightly crisp edges, combined with that perfect chewiness which good old-fashioned oats provide… super delish.

  The sound of zucchini pasta didn’t exactly entice our appetites. We’ve heard of zoodles, or zucchini noodles but had never tasted them. Zucchini pasta recipes? Ok….how….interesting. Yes, we judged the humble zucchini. The thought of making zucchini noodles didn’t exactly have us running to the kitchen to whip up a batch. Maybe we thought […]

Sea Salt Cream Iced Coffee

Sea Salt Iced Coffee

Curiosity. That is what best describes what I was thinking after initially seeing a Sea Salt Coffee on a menu board. We were in an  85°C Bakery locally here in SoCal and with so many items different from what I’m used to seeing I took a little more time to scope out  the menu. After […]

Bacon Shrimp Ramen Stir Fry

  The long lost teenage years. It seems like we are either hoping for them (before), trying to escape them (during), or wanting to relive them (after).  As we pine and hope for our teenage years to come, with its greatness of driving, and dating, and other mysterious adult-like stuff, we have no choice but […]

When my 5 younger siblings and I were growing up, we were addicted to American food in the craziest of ways. Mom and Dad always had their garden fresh soups, healthy fish and vegetable dishes. But we wanted to eat what the Teenage Mutant Nina Turtles ate, which was pizza and more pizza. We always […]

Stovetop Fresh Corn and Cheese Dip

Stovetop Cheese and Corn Dip

In 1996 when we first started cooking together many of our meals were vegetarian based. Diane was a vegetarian and Todd worked in a vegetarian restaurant, so it was totally natural for our daily menu to have a variety of vegetable dishes. Besides, we were young kids starting out our new lives together and we […]

Crunchy, Sweet, and Tangy Bread and Butter Pickles

Bread and Butter Pickles recipe

I love bread and butter pickles. That sweet tangy crunch layered into burgers, diced in tunafish sandwiches, or just grabbed straight out of the jar and snacked on. As a kid it was the only pickled thing I really liked. Dill pickles, pickled onions, pickled beets, etc… Ick. Or at least that’s what my palate […]

We scored big time this year guys! For once, we’re actually home for more than a week at a time during Summer. Because we’re not traveling as much, we’re able to hang out in the garden and beat all the garden critters to the figs. This is huge. Literally, huge in both the harvest and […]

Deep Dish Oatmeal Raisin Cookie a la Mode – “Pizookie Style”

by White on Rice Couple August 1, 2014

Way back in 2009 we shared our love of “pizookie” style deep dish cookies on the blog. They were always fresh and warm from the oven and graced with a few scoops of ice cream. Within minutes, the ice cream melted and what we had before us was a glorious deep dish of warm cookies and […]

Roasted Corn Tabouli and Ode to Summer Corn

Roasted Corn Tabouli Salad

For some reason when August rolls around it feels as if it is our last chance at eating corn. And by eating corn we mean the super good, freshly-picked, wipe the chin, juicy sweet corn.  Once September arrives everyone seems to be ready to immediately switch seasonal gears and it’s all about Autumn. As July comes […]

iphone images on Instagram. Follow Todd and Diane  We used to take for granted all the local gems that are within an arms reach from us. We would drive 5 or 6 hours to discover something new, which ultimately meant having to take a few days off to make the adventure worthwhile.   About five years ago […]
