The New OBB Cook Book, Available Now!

We’re SO excited to introduce you all to our National Bestseller! “Savoring the Seasons with Our Best Bites” Isn’t she a beauty?? This book has even more never-before-seen recipes than our last book, and they will stay exclusive to the book.  Here’s a teeeeny tiny sampling.  Seriously, there are SO many great recipes in this book. Kate and I spent the last year up to our necks in dirty dishes as we created, tested, and fine-tuned some amazing recipes.  And …

Smoked Paprika Vinaigrette + Salad in a Jar

I have a few recurring themes on the blog, things that have floated around since the very beginning. One of them that keeps popping up again and again is how much I hate lunch. I actually kind of enjoy packing my kids a lunch for school–there’s something kind of fun and therapeutic about packing them up something fun and tasty and putting it in their cute lunch boxes. But when we’re all home all day? Kill me. I hate it. …

Oven-Dried Apple Chips {Two Ways!}

Raise your hand if you hear the phrase “Mom I’m huuuungry” about 437 times a day.  How children with such tiny tummies, who seemingly eat all day long can be in a constant state of hunger is beyond me.  And I even cook for a living!  The one thing that fortunately never lacks in our house is food, yet they seem to always need a snack.  One thing I care a lot about is having healthy snacks around, for both the …

How To: Chocolate-Dipped Frozen Fruit Pops

I have reached that point. The point beyond guilt and the point where I have accepted my feelings: I am ready for school to start. I suspect lots of other moms have reached that point, too, because school uniforms are quickly disappearing at the stores and I couldn’t find a bottle of Elmer’s glue the other day to save my life. I seriously love my kids, but, while having a baby in the middle of the summer has some advantages, it also leads …

Zucchini Ribbon Pasta with {light!} Creamy Lemon-Basil Sauce

This is the first summer in a long time that I didn’t plant a garden.  You guys know that with my background in horticulture and my current-ground (yes I made that term up, why doesn’t anyone else say it?) in food, that a vegetable garden is something I’m passionate about.  I am really missing a backyard abundant in tomatoes, zucchini, and fresh herbs this year.  The reason why we didn’t plant anything earlier this spring is because we’re moving!  We’re …

Slushy Peach Punch

Sara and I have a long-documented complicated relationship with Bath & Body Works. I don’t know exactly how her addiction works, but mine goes like this: Bath & Body Works has a sale, I go in there for hand soaps, I come out with twice as many hand soaps as I went in for, plus candles, body wash, and lotion. And I never end up using the lotion. I then experience some self-loathing because I can’t possibly use all the …

It’s Coooommmmiiiing…..!

You ask, we deliver.  Or at least we try to.  When it’s reasonable. We’re thrilled to announce that an Our Best Bites Mobile App is in the works!  It’s actually rather close to being ready, but funny thing happened.  I was chatting with a friend the other day and when the subject of our app came up she immediately listed off a whole bunch of things it needed to do.  Things she loves about cooking apps and things she hates. …

Refrigerator Pickles

So before anyone accuses me of being an overachiever and blogging 2 weeks after I have a baby, let me assure you all that I am pretty much slacking in just about every way possible. I’m a tiny bit worried about my 7-year-old’s summer homework assignment where he has to write a short essay about his most favorite thing he did all summer because we have had a very slacky summer. Also, everything I’ve posted and will post between the …

Lime Meltaways

First of all, can I get a cold drink?  Is anyone else experiencing a heat wave?? I can’t handle the triple digits much longer, it feels like winter again because I refuse to go outside and my kids don’t last more than 5 minutes out there because it’s too hot.  So we stay inside with the nice cold air conditioner (sometimes I even wear a sweatshirt!) and do things like bake cookies.  I’d like to get back to popsicles so I’m …

Lemon Buttermilk Sheet Cake

You know how there are those recipes that you make once and you think, “This is good, but I’ll probably never make it again…”? For whatever reason–it was too much work, it was good but not that good, it was a layer cake and your name is Kate and almost every time you make a layer cake, it looks ugly…you know…all those reasons. And then there are other things that you make and you just know it will become a …
