Happy Halloween! Anyone have a cool costume idea to share? Every year, some sort of pop culture phenomenon becomes the go-to for the holiday, even though by that time, it is way beyond old news. No more Miley Cyrus bears or foxes who are trying to tell us what it is that they say. Old news people! If you’re struggling for an idea, I’m pretty sure there won’t be a lot of people dressed as Sexy Pizza or any of the other sexy food outfits, so that could be a good idea. Not! Instead of dressing up and venturing into the cold streets of L.A., I’ll be toasty and warm, at home, on the couch. And I just may be baking. If you plan to do the same, here is a pie recipe that will make perfect use of any pumpkins resting on your stoop.

Happy All Hallows’ Eve! Chrystal and I love a good party, so you’d think we’d be wild Halloween fanatics every year. But, for some unknown reason, its appeal dwindles more and more for us as we get further into adulthood. It’s been ages since either of us have put on what one would consider a “real” costume, and you won’t find us out and about on Halloween night among all the festivities. We can show our spirit in other ways, though. For one, Halloween just isn’t complete without pumpkins. Instead of carving one into a Jack-o-lantern, though, take your pumpkin to new heights by using it as a serving dish.

We can’t believe just two years ago to the day we signed up on WordPress and started Duodishes.com. We were just two college friends who moved to California independently of one another, coming together with one strong common passion: to experience amazing food by our own hands. We genuinely began this site as a means to share our favorite recipes with friends and family. We could dish at the dining room table on all the best dishes that came across our forks with our own style and flair, motivating the people around us to tie on an apron and start playing in the kitchen. Never did we expect to amass any sort of following in the foodie community, nor make new friends, continuously renew cooking inspirations, or retain our own voice in the ever-growing virtual exchange of food opinions, ideas and thoughts. But we did. And it’s been a beautiful experience from day one until now. Continue Reading »

Somehow it’s already the end of October and time for this month’s Guest Test Kitchen. Birthdays, celebrations, and shortened daylight helped our favorite month zoom right by us. While in college, Amir spent most of that time in the University of North Carolina’s Orientation Office. There he worked under this month’s guest blogger Carrie, who has now become a mentor and friend. A mother of two young girls, Carrie and her husband certainly have their hands full. She was enthusiastic to share this fun treat with us, just in time for Halloween, that she and her family love. We think you’ll love it too. It’s kid tested and Mother approved. Here’s Carrie!
