Super cool kitchen beakers to use as measuring cups via White On Rice Couple

Summer isn’t over yet. So we’re closing our eyes and ears to anything that’s remotely related to pumpkins and Halloween costumes. We’re still squeezing out more tomatoes from the garden and we’re not likely to be giving up Summer at least until next month. And so far, we’ve had a blast this Summer with the pups road trip and best of all, finding some new kitchen tools that we’ll be sharing over the next few weeks. Well the pups road trip was actually the best of all, but the new kitchen tools are pretty cool too.

Todd’s find: To start, we’ve been collecting some these fantastic kitchen beakers in so many different shapes and sizes. I don’t know what it is, but we love beakers. Funny thing is, we love, love, love using them in certain situations, like juicing or making cocktails. However when cooking, we still keep reaching for our ole measuring cups. Although I think its mostly due to only have metric measurements on most of the beakers and some day’s my head doesn’t want to do the conversions. We need to find a well made set with both measurements and we’ll be totally happy. Until then, at least we’re stocked up for Halloween parties! Oh wait, we aren’t letting go of summer yet. Pause that thought for another month. You can purchase the beakers here and here for the flasks.

We’ve also made some time to browse the web and came across so many cool and delicious finds on Pinterest:

- Crazy amazing loaded nachos that fill a whole sheet pan. The video leaves you screaming for a few beers too.

- Make homemade ravioli. It’s so easy. And baked? Pronto.

- Healthy can still be delicious without the carbs. These Zucchini noodles are brilliant.

- Vegetarian tacos all the way. With spicy crema!

- Can’t believe we never made this before. Marinated mushrooms are so fabulous!

Have a great weekend everyone,

diane and todd

Sriracha Roast Chicken with Sriracha Gravy

I have to admit, Diane is brilliant at times. I should be a good man and say all the time, but then everyone would know I’m either blinded by love or kissing ass.

It seems like we are roasting a whole chicken about every other week. I put a lot of care into the juiciness of the meat, the crispiness of the skin, and combined with mixing it up with different herb rubs it is »

Fig Bruschetta Recipe and Love of Fig Photographs

Thumbnail image for Fig Bruschetta Recipe and Love of Fig Photographs

I vividly remember a conversation I had with a fellow food photographer/food blogger a few years ago about figs. Food talk with fellow food bloggers? I didn’t intend for this an “f” alliteration, but doesn’t it sound like it could be the title of a food column? Yes? Anyways, I’ll get back on track about all this fig talk. I have a tendency to get off track at times and figuring all this out during »

Chances are if you walk into our house or work with us in our studio, you’ll end up sipping on some of our favorite coffee drinks. For the morning, a manual pressed espresso or cappuccino will start the day. In the afternoon when we start feeling sluggish, a Vietnamese iced coffee is the perfect “pick-me-up”. If you’ve never had a Vietnamese Iced Coffee, it’s a combination of strong coffee and a hit of sweetened condensed »

Thai Tea Recipe {Make this Now}

Thai Tea Recipe

I had a “doh”/”ah-ha” moment last week when we were in Chicago to speak at BlogHer Viewfinder Day. During one of the conference days, we escaped out to lunch at a local Thai restaurant to explore more of the city’s culinary offerings. As always, we’ll try to order something new and different, and in the case of a Thai restaurant it normally involves a curry dish (only medium spicy, please! we’re not as young as »

Before we ever get off a plane to a new city, we’re researching some of the best places to eat. Our love of food extends to every corner of the city. Some would call it an obsession, but it’s simply a fun way to devour each city’s unique food culture, specialties and dishes. We’re not the only ones who pursue such culinary adventures and one of the best searches on our list is for local »

For the Love of Pizza: Deep Dish or Thin Crust?

Hi Everyone.
We’ve been in Chicago over the last few days to attend BlogHer and also presented the morning keynote at this years first BlogHer Viewfinder. Prior to embarking on trip, the first thing on our minds was pizza.

The passion and opinions that everyone’s shared on the issue of pizza is so incredible to read. We had asked Facebook for some advice on where to eat some good deep dish pizza in the city »

A few weeks ago we embarked on another photo shoot adventure with Chef Wolfgang Puck at his signature restaurant in Hotel Bel Air. We felt jazzed to be invited back again to document another special evening with Chef Wolfgang Puck and his guest chefs. The food that comes out of the kitchen is incredibly executed and thought out. It’s so hard to not sneak a bite of all the dishes, but we have work to »

We just can’t get enough of great Summer peaches. Luscious, juicy and drippy sweet stone fruit in any shape or form is one of the most special treats of the season. Our yearly July highlights include taking time to drive to different roadside fruit stands. Visiting different local farms that sell their peach or stone fruit is like walking into a candy store.

A few weeks ago we were lucky enough to score whole flat »

Mom always loves making me lunch. But it’s not just for me, but for all her six kids and all our friends. Though I don’t live with her, I visit her enough to make her heart and feeding frenzy habits happy. And get this, she even has tons of little bags and disposable containers for all of us to take food home in. That way, she doesn’t have to keep track of who has all »

Fresh Apricot Bars

Lately it seems our cooking at home has been driven by an over abundance of ingredients. Creativity from Copiousness, if you will. Not that we are complaining. Quite the opposite really, we couldn’t be happier.

The garden is going blitzkrieg with its tomato production. We’ve lost the battle for the blueberries with the mockingbirds, but that has distracted them from the sweet flesh of the plums, necta-plums, and soon to be pluots. Although they now »

Spring Roll Bites – “Tapas” for All

by White on Rice Couple July 2, 2013
Thumbnail image for Spring Roll Bites – “Tapas” for All

Perhaps it’s by birth that I’m so addicted to fresh spring rolls. I can’t negate the fact that I was bred on a diet of rice and noodle dishes, so anything with Vietnamese or Asian flavors always sounds appealing. But if I could name one Vietnamese dish that I have at least three or four times a week, spring rolls are the front and center.

My love for spring rolls goes beyond the traditional pork »

Junk Food Confessions

Let’s be honest. We all have our vices and hidden underneath or behind our pantry shelves somewhere probably lies a half eaten box of Little Debbie chocolate cupcakes. It could possibly be our box of stress-relief after a long days work or when you need to quietly sneak your kid some sugar contraband just so that they can leave you alone to write your blog post. Either way, I know nearly all home cooks are »

Grilled Green Tomatoes, An Accidental Dish

Thumbnail image for Grilled Green Tomatoes, An Accidental Dish

It’s always an accident. At some point during my garden duties of tying up the tomato vines on the trellis, I inevitably bump a healthy green tomato and watch it fall to the ground. Darn it. There’s nothing more frustrating than to watch a beautiful heirloom tomato grow to it’s perfect shape and never see it to it’s full ripened stage. My clumsy hands somehow manage to break tender vines that are laden with tomato »

Can you believe it? 2013 is already half way through, our heirloom tomatoes are starting to ripen and Summer feels like it’s arrived in full swing. Every day we’re taking time to live in the moment because before we know it, we’ll be sourcing our Christmas tree. What a scary thought.

From a photographic perspective, Summer started back in December 2012 for us. When we’re shooting and styling editorial and advertising campaigns, we’re on a »
