  1. Soak beans overnight in water.
  2. Strain beans and rinse well. Place in pot and cover with water and begin to boil. Until very tender. May take up to an hour.
  3. While beans are cooking, roast butternut squash in a pan with a 1 T of oil to caramelize. Once caramelized add into a pot along with garlic, and cumin.
  4. Once all ingredients are tender strain and reserve the liquid for pureeing.
  5. While the ingredients are still hot place in a mixer/ food processor with a little liquid to help puree. Your hummus will come out very smooth if you blend while hot.

Wholegrain Cider Mustard Recipe


Yesterday we shared our B&B Pickle Recipe we made with Joni and today we are back with a homemade mustard recipe. Trust us, you'll never need to buy condiments at the store again. For this recipe you can adjust the ratio of yellow mustard seeds to brown mustard seeds, depending on the level of heat you'd like. The brown (or black) seeds are more hot. Also, if you prefer your mustard to be thinner and less creamy, add more water and vinegar while blending to reach the desired consistency.


  • ¼ cup Whole Yellow Mustard Seeds
  • ¼ cup Whole Brown Mustard Seeds
  • 1 Tbl Coleman’s Ground Mustard
  • 2 Tbl Honey
  • ½ cup Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • ¼ tsp Celery Seed
  • ½ cup Purified Water


  1. Place all ingredients in a glass bowl.  Then tightly cover with plastic wrap for 2 days.
  2. Once the mixture has sat for 2 days place the mixture into a blender.  Blend for 30 seconds for a coarse mixture, or longer for a smoother consistency but mixture will not be able to be completely smooth.
  3. Transfer ingredients to a glass jar fitted with a tight lid.  Place in refrigerator the mustard will be good for at least 3 months.

We will be back later this week with entertaining tips to assemble and source a local meat and cheese board.

Harvest Sweet Potato Loaf Recipe + Baby Announcement


We have thoroughly enjoyed the temperature change here in Atlanta... and hope it's here to stay. To welcome Autumn in all it's glory we'd like to share the perfect hearty, wholesome (and tasty) quick bread. We adapted this recipe from the Piece of Cake'sGolden Pumpkin Loaf.

Did you watch the video?!? No, it's not a cooking tutorial, but rather a personal announcement we are pretty stoked about. Our dear friend, and talented photographer came to our house to photograph the stop motion.


  • 2 cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 3/4 cup Yellow Cornmeal
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon Nutmeg, freshly grated
  • 3 Large Eggs
  • 1-1/4 Dark Brown Sugar, packed
  • 3/4 cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups Baked Sweet Potato Puree
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • 6 tablespoons Grapeseed Oil
  • 1/4 cup Dried Cranberries
  • 1/4 cup Dried Currants
  • 1/4 cup Dried Raisins
  • 1 cup Pecans, chopped



Preheat oven to 350 F. Butter a 9x5 loaf pan and line the 2 long sides and bottom with parchment paper. Mix together flour, cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and spices in medium bowl, using a hand whisk. Set Aside. In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the eggs and both sugars on medium-high speed until creamy and thick, for about 3 minutes. Reduce the speed, the add the pureed sweet potato, vanilla, and oil and continue mixing until smooth. On low speed, slowly add the dry ingredients a little at a time, mixing only until the flour just disappears.


Remove the bowl from the mixer, scrape the bowl up from the bottom and fold in dried fruit and nuts. Transfer batter to the prepared pan. Bake for 60-75 minutes, or until the loaf is well browned and a small knife emerges clean from the center. Cool in the pan for about 15 minutes before releasing it to cool completely on a wire rack. Enjoy!
