Chai Pumpkin Pie

If you know us, chai is a strong contender for coffee in our household. So naturally, the obsession transferred itself into baking. With Thanksgiving around the corner, it manifested itself into this pie! This recipe is adapted from the traditional Libbey recipe. I added some extra spices for a chai flavor as well as brown…

Another Baby Story

As I’m lying in bed with our littlest daughter, soaking up her tiny movements and sleepy squeaks, I’m again reminded how amazing the whole process of birth is. There’s a bump gone from my belly, no aches where there were before, and a newly discovered ease of getting around the house. God knew what he…

This Time Around

A lot of people say that your first born tends to become your guinea pig, and although every child is different, I find this often to be true. As I am coming up on week 36 of my second pregnancy, my husband and I had some time to reflect on things we did in the…

Strawberry & Lemon Balm Jam

This jam recipe was inspired by the fresh tastes of early summer, and took me all of my daughter’s 30-minute nap to make! I have been searching for a recipe that incorporates lemon balm since my herb garden is overflowing, but when I tasted a leaf, I instantly thought of pairing it with strawberry and…

Take Off Your Shoes

Well, we did it! Baby Curry #2 is on the way! I am 7 weeks and 3 days today, and very thankful I’m here. Our first born was a sweet surprise, so this was our first time trying for a baby. It is not as easy as I thought it would be! Initially, we wanted…

Dark Chocolate-Espresso Tart with Cardamom Meringue

I created this tart with Valentine’s Day in mind. If your special person isn’t a sociopath and loves chocolate, this recipe is THE ONE. Chocolate shortcrust pastry, dark chocolate ganache enriched with espresso, topped with mounds of toasty cardamom meringue. Plus, it’s pretty. This was my first time playing around with meringue, and let me…

A Trip to Longwood

What’s been going on with the Curry’s lately…. On Saturday we visited our favorite botanical gardens with a sweet friend of mine. We got a membership for Christmas which is honestly my favorite thing ever! Truly a gift that keeps on giving. Plus, it’s nice to be 15 minutes from the #1 botanical garden in…

One-Pan Fish Roast

There’s something about fish that feels fancy and grown-up, even if you got it in the freezer section of the grocery store. This dish is perfect for a week night, and not too complex for picky eaters (hello, husband). Crispy potatoes, roasted onions and blistered cherry tomatoes pair with any semi-firm white fish beautifully! One-Pan…

Gingerbread Cinnamon Rolls

Ever since I was about 12, my mom used to make us cinnamon rolls for Christmas. She’d make dozens upon dozens and give them away for Christmas presents, and we’d be drawn into the kitchen by the intoxicating smell, begging for a bit of icing or the littlest roll in the pan. Although that recipe…
