This week, we feature Adam Merrin and Ryan Alvarez, the fantastic duo behind the blog Husbands That Cook! They are two husbands cooking together in a small kitchen in a house on a hill in Eagle Rock, California sharing recipes, stories, and traveling the world. It all started back in 2015 when Ryan told Adam about his idea to start a cooking blog during the first week of January, and Adam said he wanted to do it with him! Since then, they have accumulated a massive audience and share their recipes worldwide. You will find a variety of delicious meals, from quick and easy to international-inspired, with plenty of vegan options!

We went through the Food Monster App and showcased 15 of Adam and Ryan’s amazing recipes! Check them out!


1. Stir-Fry Veggie Lettuce Wraps With Ginger-Garlic Tofu

These Stir-Fry Veggie Lettuce Wraps With Ginger-Garlic Tofu are almost too good to be true. Once sautéed in flavorful ginger garlic sauce, the veggies are mixed with small bits of spicy tofu cooked in soy sauce, more ginger and garlic, red pepper flakes, and sesame oil. This savory, sweet, and spicy mixture is then added to crisp cups of lettuce, creating an Asian-inspired taco that is tangy and deliciously unexpected.

Made with plump blackberries, fresh peaches, a sweet vanilla bean, and a splash of lemon juice, this Blackberry Peach Cobbler With Ginger Spice Biscuits uses both brown and white sugar for extra flavor. Topped with warm and tender ginger-spice biscuits and a scoop of vanilla ice cream—of course—this dreamy end-of-summer treat with hints of cinnamon is true heaven in a skillet.

3. Cinnamon-Sugar Monkey Bread

This Cinnamon-Sugar Monkey Bread is the easiest type of cinnamon bun you will ever make. You simply stir the dough together in a bowl, let it rise, place it in the skillet, let it rise again, then bake it in the oven. And the recipe is a sensory overload—the soft feel of the dough in your hands, the cinnamon-sugar aroma that transforms your house into a French bakery, and the crispy-tender texture which is truly magical: watch how quickly they disappear before your very eyes!

4. Grilled Cauliflower Doner Wraps

5. Sparkling Dragon Fruit Margarita

Summer will be pretty in pink with this refreshing drink. These Sparkling Dragon Fruit Margaritas aren’t just beautiful, they are delicious, too.

Making this cocktail without the dragon fruit won’t change the flavor, it just won’t have the alluring neon pink glow.

This light Japanese dish is the perfect midweek dinner. The noodles cook in just five minutes and the three-ingredient soba tsayu can be made a week in advance.

With swirls of soba and a satisfying savory sauce, sipping some smooth sake on the side would certainly be a stimulating supper at sundown.

Tender, golden, and delicious, tostones are a popular dish traditionally served throughout Latin America and the Caribbean, and while typically served as a side with dinner, they also make an ideal appetizer for parties!
