Thanksgiving By the Numbers

Do you bake your Thanksgiving pie or do you buy it from the store? How big was your Thanksgiving bird? Is cranberry sauce a must at your dinner table? These little details are what make the Thanksgiving holiday so special – the traditions, the meal. Imagine a Thanksgiving without Aunt Patty’s stuffing, or that classic end-of-meal pumpkin nog. Around the world and around the nation, these traditions differ, but one thing is certain: we should all be grateful for what […]

There are some times when you want unadorned, perfectly-cooked steak, with a crispy salty crust and a warm medium-rare center. And then there are times when you get a little bored of simply cooked steak and want something a little more complex. This is for those other times: a salty, savory, tangy, funky umami sauce to top your perfectly cooked steak (or chicken or pork). If you’ve never used miso before, this sauce is a great place to start. Miso […]

This Peaches ‘n Oats Smoothie is one of my favorite breakfast smoothies! It must be the oats; I love eating them in the morning for breakfast because they’re so filling and keep the hunger away for hours. I like to sprinkle some oats on top when it’s all done. If you like your smoothies to have more of a chilled, slushy texture, freeze the fresh peaches for at least 45 minutes (or overnight) before adding them to the Magic Bullet cup. […]

Have you ever tried grinding your own spices? I never have before, because I didn’t think I had the appropriate equipment for grinding spices. I have a coffee grinder, but then I’d have spices all over my coffee grinder. It’s a shame there isn’t a blender-like device that’s easy and even dishwasher-safe. Oh, wait. This is my first foray into Bullet-ground spices and I decided to go for a recipe that really takes advantage of the fragrant flavors of fresh […]

Broccoli-Cauliflower-Apple-Mash-(1)

There’s no contest: roasted cauliflower and broccoli are far superior to their raw counterparts. So why not combine them in a delicious roasted mash? To sweeten the mash, I’ve included roasted apple, as well, for a delightfully unexpected twist. Broccoli Cauliflower Apple Mash Ingredients 1 head of Cauliflower 1 head of Broccoli 1 apple Oil Salt Directions Chop broccoli, cauliflower and apple. Add to baking tray with oil and salt. Roast in oven at 375 degrees for 20 to 25 […]

spinachdumplings

This spinach dumpling recipe is a fun way to sneak your greens in! I easily get bored with eating vegetables plain and I’m always looking for new ways to get them in my diet. These spinach dumplings use a lot of spinach, but you’d never know it! One large bag of fresh spinach makes about 20 small dumplings, which is a one person serving. The fresh spinach leaves are wilted in a pan on the stove, then the excess water […]

I guess I’m on a Sichuan kick, because I woke up this week with a craving for these delicious cold noodles. These are sort of like an authentic Chinese version of the Chinese-American classic cold sesame noodles. “Ma la” is the Chinese expression for hot and numbing, provided by the combo of Sichuan peppercorns and red chili peppers. (You can get the peppercorns, as well as peppercorn oil, aka “prickly ash oil,” at a Chinese grocer or online.) While I […]

Banana-Cashew-Butter-41

I’m a huge fan of anything that goes on bread. Sometimes, though, I’m in the mood for a more unique flavor on my bagel; one can only cycle through peanut butter, cream cheese or jelly so many times. This banana cashew butter is sweet, refreshing and healthy. Luckily, it’s also a synch to throw together! I’ve added raisins as a sweetener, too, for that little extra oomph! Banana Raisin Cashew Butter Ingredients 3/4 cup cashews 1 banana 1/3 cup raisins […]

One thing I love to make in my Magic Bullet is salad dressings! It’s fun to try new dressings every now and then, and this is the first time I made a lemon poppyseed dressing. It turned out perfect for my chopped apple and pear salad. It’s slightly tangy from the lemon, but also sweet from the sugar and the mustard and onion flavors in it are spectacular, as well. The Magic Bullet makes it so easy to whip up […]
