I guess I must be exploring a theme, because this month, I’ve been making and eating a ton of bean dishes that are a bit like chili (in that they are warming and delicious), but that also happen to take advantage of totally different flavor profiles. Even better if they’re quick and easy and cheap, like this dish is. This recipe, adapted from Food and Wine magazine, uses a bunch of clever tricks to pack a lot of Indian flavor […]

Dark-Chocolate-Pudding-1 copy

On its own, pure chocolate can be a great treat, but, let’s be honest, it’s rarely a satisfying snack. It’s something you usually enjoy in moderation and usually not abundance (unless it’s been one of those weeks…) Chocolate pudding, on the other hand, satisfies your sweet tooth without putting you into that food coma that so many other indulgent desserts do. I used a dark chocolate bar as the foundation in this recipe. The brown sugar, vanilla and cocoa powder balance […]

Have you ever thought about eating popsicles for breakfast? I attended a brunch once and, yes, they were in fact serving breakfast popsicles! I thought this was a really cool idea and decided to make them at home for quick grab-and-go breakfast. All you need is yogurt (plain or vanilla), your favorite fruit jam, and your favorite granola. Most yogurts are too thick alone, so you’ll need to use your Magic Bullet to blend in a little milk. You can also […]

Flädlesuppe in German is translated to pancake soup in English, because the main ingredients in this traditional soup are thin, shredded pancakes! I love this soup because it serves as a quick, easy-to-make lunch with little investment and lots of gain. You can use vegetable or beef broth, depending on your preference. Celery, leek, green onion, parsley and carrots give it a little texture and flavor, but the shredded pancakes are the absolute star in this dish. Here is a tip for shredding […]
