I love adding some oats to it to make it a filling breakfast […]

I know I probably sound like a broken record, but if you aren’t buying great in-season tomatoes, I don’t know what to do with you. Of course, great big heirloom tomatoes are one of the best things about summer, but another cool thing is the variety of tomatoes you can get. Case in point: these delicious sungold tomatoes, which are like cherry tomatoes, but much richer, umamier (Is that word? It is now), and, well, tomato-ier. I like buying lots […]

We’ve all accidentally beaten eggs over the side of a bowl and onto the countertop. It’s a sad experience. The Magic Bullet is, of course, a great tool for avoiding that mess.

In this recipe, we’re using the Magic Bullet to mix eggs, an assortment of peppers, and parsley into a healthy, delicious and attractive scramble. […]

If you like hummus, you’re going to love this red lentil hummus recipe! While traditional hummus is made with chickpeas, also known as garbanzo beans, it can also be made with other beans. Technically, “hummus” means chickpeas, but red lentils are a perfect alternative to this classic dip. I don’t notice a big difference in flavor when I make hummus with chickpeas or red lentils, so it is nice to be able to use whatever I have on hand at […]

It’s still summer! Grill grill grill grill! Okay, that’s definitely part of summer fun, but it’s also a great time at the farmer’s market, and in particular the only time of the year you can get green garlic. Green garlic is just immature garlic, but it’s a really neat and tasty ingredient – like the sweet, mild garlic of your dreams. Sometimes, ingredients just taste better when you can only get them for a few short months. Taking a cue here from […]

A few years ago, I went through this thing where I was eating Chinese chicken salad pretty much every day for a month. It was right after I tried my very first Chinese chicken salad and, I guess you could say I became a little obsessed. What truly makes a Chinese chicken salad superb is the dressing. Minced fresh ginger is one of the essential ingredients in this great-tasting dressing. I like to make a big portion of the dressing and keep […]

I once read a book about a high school where an alumnus was obsessed with fried zucchini and the students hated fried zucchini, but the alumnus was a really nice guy and no one wanted to offend him so everyone buried the zucchini under the football bleachers, but then hamsters started eating the zucchini, which made them breed rapidly, which made the alumnus provide even more fried zucchini, which made the problem worse, until it reached the point where hundreds of […]
