Are you guys excited that it’s pumpkin season? I love seeing pumpkins in grocery stores right now, because they make me dream of all of the delicious recipes I can make with them! One of my favorite Fall salads is this roasted butternut squash salad. I use my Magic Bullet to quickly mix up a sweet honey balsamic dressing and toss it together with some spinach, pecans and pumpkin seeds, while my chopped butternut squash is roasting in the oven.

Sigh. I’d say summer is ending, but that wouldn’t be true: summer is over. Pretty soon it’ll be all stews, braises, and chili around here, and while there’s nothing wrong with that, comfort yourself just a little bit by finding one of the last tomatoes of the season and fresh basil at the farmers market and making this delicious fresh tomato sauce. With really good tomatoes, you make a great sauce with no cooking at all; just blend them up […]

Ketchup is something we often put very little thought into purchasing. And for good reason – aside from branding, there aren’t many variations that are popular. It’s a common flavor that we’ve trained ourselves not to think too deeply about. Two of the best benefits of the Magic Bullet are the abilities to have control and to get creative with everything you eat. In this recipe for ketchup, we’re able to have fun creating a spin on the classic flavor […]

When I was a kid, I had a dog that used to collect rocks. She used to dig in the ground for them and pile them up under trees and chew on them and steal them from children. She would have liked this crisp! I’ve always thought “stone fruit” was a funny name for something edible. It’s not exactly that stones are unappealing, but when I think “inedible rock-like substance,” I don’t exactly think, “name of a delicious, sweet, ripe, […]

Living in San Francisco has turned me into sort of a fish taco snob. There are so many incredible fish taco places here! For me, the one thing that makes a delicious fish taco (besides the fish, of course) is the creamy “dressing” lathered on top. Most fish tacos I’ve had here are topped with a delicious, flavorful, creamy topping that I have not been able to reproduce… until now! I finally perfected a fish taco crema topping that tastes just like some of […]

Three different seeds add a lot of protein, fiber and healthy fats to these energy bites. They are a perfect post-workout snack to refuel your muscles and give you a boost of energy. You can add other nuts and seeds if you like, but remember that the more stuff you add to these the more peanut butter you will need to add to compensate so they don’t fall apart! They are really easy to make, no baking required. Three-Seed Energy […]

If you find yourself craving pumpkin pie this holiday season, why not skip the extra calories and make a healthy pumpkin mousse instead? This pumpkin mousse is vegan and gluten-free, and tastes just like a delicious pumpkin pie filling. The secret ingredient is tofu, which makes it really thick and creamy. You can sweeten it with almost any sweetener, from honey to maple syrup to brown sugar. I’ve tried a few different sweeteners in this recipe and they all work […]

Lately I have been making a lot of my own nut and seed butters. They are cheaper and easier to make at home, plus you don’t need to add any preservatives or stabilizers if you make them in small batches at a time every few days. I made this creamy cinnamon nut butter the other day. It can be used as a spread for apples for a healthy snack, or on a piece of toast for a protein-rich breakfast. The […]
