Do you like your coffee with a shot of Kahlua? Do you take it extra large, put it on the tab? Are you a coffee snob who’ll only drink coffee that’s been French pressed?

strawberry-mint-FEAT

The summer can be brutal, and the majority of the time, I just want to enjoy a nice, refreshing piece of fruit. Almost daily, my kids and I venture to the pool with packed lunches and sunscreen. The last thing I want to eat is a sandwich, so I created this salad as my g0-to. 😉 It’s light, refreshing, but still totally filling. And, you won’t feel full or bloated in your bathing suit! We all know how important that it! […]

Calling all peanut butter lovers! You are going to swoon over this fluffy peanut butter mousse. Especially because it’s actually healthy. No heavy whipping cream is used in this recipe; instead it uses silken tofu, an unexpected, but absolutely delicious replacement for fattening and sweetened cream! The tofu gives it a fluffy texture, while the peanut butter and confectioners’ sugar give it all the flavor. Watch out though, because this vegan dessert is highly addicting. Once you have a bite, […]

cauliflower-pasta-FEAT

This dish is such a classic for me that I couldn’t believe I’d never blogged about it for Magic Bullet. It’s an easy weeknight dish: an incredibly delicious pasta with somewhat off-beat ingredients and reasonably healthy to boot. If you think you don’t like cauliflower, this will turn you into a convert: the high heat gets it crispy and sweet and delicious. And if you think you don’t like anchovies, well, first of all, you’re nuts, but second of all, […]

Broccoli-Tots-FEAT

Who doesn’t like a good tot? While potato-based tots are by far the most common, sometimes you’re in the mood for a little spin off. This recipe uses cooked broccoli, cheddar cheese and some spicy Sriracha to make a baked broccoli tot that’s not only healthy, but just as tasty as any tater tot out there! Broccoli Tots Ingredients 1 1/2-2 cups broccoli, chopped 1/4 cup scallions, chopped 1 Tbsp Sriracha, or your favorite hot sauce 1/2-1 tsp. garlic powder 1 egg […]

breakfast-strata

This ham and cheese breakfast strata is an easy dish to make for a complete breakfast. It is also one of my favorite dishes to bring to a brunch, since it can easily feed a lot of people. You can use white or whole wheat bread — white bread tastes a little better in my opinion, but whole wheat bread is healthier and will keep you full longer. I usually opt for the whole wheat bread option, especially in this dish, […]

strawberry-lemonade-pops3 FEAT

Multiple times I day I crave a little something sweet, and, now that summer’s here, popsicles are a must have! Sadly, store-bought popsicles are packed full of sugar, a no-no if you’ve got 3 rambunctious little ones running around — or even just one, for that matter! But, luckily, it’s so easy to make your own, and the prep is little to none. Before you know it, you will have a sweet, refreshing, cold treat perfect for satisfying those cravings! Strawberry Lemonade […]

cookie-dough-dip

Dessert or appetizer dip? You decide! This chocolate chip cookie dough dip is secretly healthy, although nobody would know unless you told them the secret ingredient: white beans! Yes, the base of the dip is white kidney beans. But I promise — you don’t taste them at all once they’re blended with all of the other ingredients, which helps create a delicious and strong cookie dough flavor. My favorite thing to eat this cookie dough dip with is graham crackers, but I’m […]
