Lemon & Rosemary roasted chicken

Lemon & Rosemary Roasted Chicken

one whole chicken
3 tablespoons butter.
fresh rosemary
one lemon

Combine the room temperature butter and a good hand full of finely chopped rosemary add some salt and pepper and rub all over the chicken. Next squeeze a half of lemon juice on the chicken, cut the remainder of the lemon and place on top for more flavor, I added a whole stick of rosemary as well. 

A roasted chicken is such an easy meal and you can do a lot with the left over chicken, I make soup or chicken salad usually. You can't go wrong with a roasted chicken! Enjoy!

This was so simple to make and it is so beautiful to look at!! It adds just great color to your meal.

Slice potatoes into round wedges, cover with olive oil, thyme, and any other seasonings you wish, add a dash of salt & pepper and throw that sucker in the oven for 45 min at 375.

Marmalade Magic

Winter is ALMOST over..... or so we hope. Cross your frost bitten fingers. Although I must say this winter has been light years better then all the shit we endured in Minnesota last year.... #amiright?

Today we are going to bring some color into your winter world with this delicious cocktail "Marmalade Magic" which kinda sounds like a Beetles song if you ask me. We love this drink because it is colorful, tasty, and oh so fun to make!


2 parts white whiskey
One fresh squeezed blood orange
Two drops aromatic bitters
One shot simple syrup 
2-3 tablespoons tonic water (depending on taste)
4 large square ice cubes
Fresh mint for garnish 
Makes two drinks

Start by cutting one full slice from the blood orange, set aside. Then juice the whole blood orange, it should come out to be about two shots or more depending on the size of the orange, after the orange is completely juiced add it to your cocktail shaker. Next add your simple syrup to the shaker, then the whiskey. After that add two large square ice cubes to the shaker. Then cover and shake, shake, shake for about forty five seconds, add one ice cube to each glass, then pour cocktail over the ice. Then slice the one slice of blood orange left over in half and place one half on each glass, add some mint and then drink!

Why not go for some local booze? Boost that local economy! MN represent! 

YUMMMM!!! That should help warm you up!

Italian Wedding Soup

It's damn cold here in Minnesota this week, we could all use something to warm us up! My mother-in-law is one hundred percent Italian and this is a staple soup in her house hold. It is the prefect soup to warm up with! Enjoy!

Italian Wedding Soup

30-40 one inch sausage meatballs 
2 cups shredded chicken
2 tbls olive oil
1 cup minced yellow onion
1 cup diced carrots
1 cup diced tomatoes
3/4 cups diced celery
10 cups chicken stock
1/2 cup dry white wine
1 cup small pasta like tubetini or stars
1/4 cup minced fresh dill
12 ounces baby spinach, washed and trimmed

Heat olive oil in a soup pot, add the onion, carrots, tomatoes, and celery and saute them until they are soft, stirring occasionally. Next add the chicken stock and white wine and bring to a boil. Then add the pasta to the simmering broth and cook for 6 to 8 min, until pasta is tender. Add the dill and then meatballs and shredded chicken to the mix let simmer for one min, add salt and pepper to taste. Then mix in the spinach and let cook for one min, until the spinach is wilted! Once served in bowls add the parmesan and serve with some bread and butter!

Happy cooking!

Our Twenty Something Table

My Twenty-Something Table 
It's old, tattered, chipped and fugly.
Made of wood, nails and screws.
Our conversations are not always lovely.
We joke, we drink, we chew. 
At my twenty-something table
we sit there with the old and the new
after this we're gonna feel tumbly
say, can I have another brew?
god this table is ugly
thats like so taboo
I love my twenty-something table
as I laugh along with you
the food we made is kinda smugly
but the lives we lead are true
 at least we're not going hungry
I'm just glad I can share some with you.
At my twenty-something table

We need to be reminded of how great we have it more often. We have food on our tables, a roof over our heads and the best company we could ask for. So today remind yourself of how good life is, how lucky you are to have people who love you, and how amazing it is that you are alive.

Love, Bethany & Whitney

Summer Cocktail

Summer is here and so are WE! Let's chat for a moment, Whit and I want to be honest with you. Having a food and cooking blog is really hard. Whitney and I both are so passionate about this blog but finding the time weekly or monthly to get together and cook and photograph is nearly impossible. What makes this experience great for us is actually cooking these meals together and spending time together doing something we love. It's hard after a long week at work wanting to cook or come up with something new, sometimes it's just nice to come home pour yourself and bowl of cereal and call it a night. Although, if we could quit our jobs and cook and blog all day long we probably would. However the reality is we are twenty-somethings and life is busy. Plus, it's summer and we have patio happy hours to go to, concerts to see, food trucks to try, and skin that desperately needs to see the sun (ie. my legs).

We are going to try our hardest to blog more because we love it and we hope you do too. We want to be the best versions of ourselves and I believe this blog is an outlet for us to not only be creative but do something that makes us happy. So if you are in the same boat as us, if you feel too busy to cook or too tired to blog just know that we get it completely. But let's challenge each other, do something that makes us happy at least once a week. Do it for you. What makes me happy this week is this delicious cocktail... mmmmmm yum.  

One Part Whiskey
Two Parts Ginger Ale
Lime Wedge
Lemon Wedge
Fresh Raspberries
