pesto

Is there anything more delicious than pesto? Or anything better suited to the Magic Bullet? If there is, I don’t know it. I like to change up the pesto sauces I make and this time I  swapped the traditional basil pesto with fresh arugula pesto. Subtle, yet delicious: the arugula is peppery and vaguely woody, giving it a nice but none-too-bold flavor. I picked up some fresh pasta at the farmer’s market here in DC, as well as some delicious […]

squash

I have been making this butternut squash quesadilla almost daily for the past few weeks because it is just that good.  Just like I do with my kiddos, I try my best to incorporate a vegetable at least 2 out of the 3 meals that we eat each day. Sometimes I don’t have the time to sit and cook a full lunch for myself, which is why I love this recipe. To make it simpler, I make a huge batch […]

bean

These black bean cakes are crispy on the outside and creamy on the inside. The secret is Panko bread crumbs, which are used both inside and outside. The batter is made of finely chopped onions, garlic, cumin, cayenne pepper and black beans blended in a Magic Bullet blender, which is then dipped in flour, egg and Panko bread crumbs and fried until golden and crispy on the outside. These black bean cakes go great with avocado, sour cream and cilantro […]

pasta

Spaghetti carbonara… it’s a classic, easy, delicious, cheap, and hearty dinner, so why haven’t you made it? If you don’t know what carbonara is, you’re in for a treat. This classic, Roman dish consists of bacon, barely cooked eggs and parmesan, to create a rich, delicious pasta sauce. Although I’ve made carbonara many times before, this one follows a new recipe from Serious Eats, which involves more egg yolks and less bacon and cheese than other recipes. The result is particularly eggy […]

Avocado Chickpea Sandwich Recipe Ingredients ½ can of chickpeas, drained and rinsed ½ avocado 1 tb. hummus 1 tsp. mustard Juice of ½ lemon ¼ tsp. garlic powder, paprika, […]

Red velvet cupcakes are my weakness. Especially with cream cheese frosting. February is the perfect month to bake red velvet cupcakes in order to celebrate Valentine’s Day. This year, I give you a healthier version, using fresh beets in this cupcake recipe. The beets give the cupcakes a beautiful, natural color and moist texture. We don’t need to use any artificial food dyes or a lot of butter in this recipe, which makes it much healthier! Go ahead and eat […]

The avocado’s rich and creamy texture is perfect for spreading on toast for a simple meal. With help from the Magic Bullet, this recipe adds a spicy dynamic to the natural avocado flavor, combining it with jalapeño and crushed red pepper to create an easy-to-make, flavor-rich and super healthy spread. The only difficult part of this recipe is deciding what bread to put it on! Spicy Avocado Spread Recipe Ingredients 1/2 avocado 1/4 jalapeño pepper 1 tsp. crushed red pepper […]

sushi

“Bowls”: I know, trending right now. I’m sorry to be part of the trend. I really am. But, what can I say? Sometimes trends happen for a reason. (I still like pesto.) Anyway, if you haven’t tried making sushi bowls, you’re in for a treat: it turns out that a lot of the magic going on behind the sushi counter is about presentation. You can make a perfectly delicious, sushi-like creation with only a few simple ingredients. I use brown […]
