Coffee lovers come in all shapes and sizes, and with good reason. It can be decadent, it can be straightforward, it can get the job done or provide a lovely afternoon respite.

I realized that lately we have been having the same few drinks over and over for dinner – BORING! Finally, one night I decided to get creative with some sparkling water, blackberries, lime, basil and my Magic Bullet. I call it the Blackberry Basil Spritzer. OK, so I guess it isn’t really a true spritzer since this is a non-alcoholic beverage. The blackberries give it a nice fruity taste that is not too sweet, while the basil adds unique dimension of […]

I have an important question for the internet: where did sungold tomatoes come from?!? For so many years now, I’ve been a happy patron of my local farmers market, scarfing up delightful August heirloom tomatoes and putting up with mediocre June hothouse tomatoes, and making due with grape tomatoes the rest of the year. And then this year, out of nowhere, sungold tomatoes are everywhere! And they are so good! With such a long season! It’s amazing! The tomato gods […]

Galettes are incredibly easy to make while looking oh-so-fancy, my favorite kind of meal! In this savory galette, I use swiss chard, onion and mushrooms on top of ricotta cheese blended with herbs and lemon. The crust is made with whole wheat flour, and after rolling it out you don’t need to worry about making it look pretty. That is why it is a galette! After folding the edges up into the filling, just put it in the oven to […]

If it’s cold and you’ve been eating a lot of chili (or a lot of chili-like bean dishes), and if you’ve been making a lot of cornbread to eat with that chili, then there is a distinct possibility that you will find yourself with extra cornbread. Of course, you can console yourself by eating cornbread with maple syrup for breakfast, but while there’s certainly nothing wrong with that, after a few days I started hankering for something new. This is […]

A dip usually has word associations like, “cheesy,” “creamy,” or “heavy.” It’s rare that those associations ever wander into the territory of “healthy” or “light,” but it’s guaranteed that after you’ve tasted this carrot purée dip, you’ll have no idea why that is. This recipe uses the Magic Bullet to blend carrot and a little bit of spice to create a magical veggie dip you’ll be serving over and over again.   Carrot Purée Recipe Ingredients 2 cups carrots 1/2 […]

Scrambled. Egg. Salad. I know it’s weird. But, hey, 2016 has been a weird year, so just roll with it.   I’ve been on a quest lately for new ways to make salad a satisfying dinner. And while farro salad is my great love, you can’t actually eat farro every night. Trust me. I’ve tried. Plus, sometimes the Whole Foods bulk bin section is out of farro, and then, seriously, you need another plan.   That’s what led me to […]

They always say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day right? But we all know how hard it is to make sure you eat breakfast, especially when you have to get the kids out the door early in the morning, while accomplishing everything else on that morning to do list! That’s why I love the idea of making breakfast ahead of time so that I can grab it and be out the door. These breakfast muffins are not […]

  Chickpeas are hearty, warm, earthy and healthy, but undeservedly, we rarely see them act as the main flavor or ingredient in their own dish. That all changes now. Thanks to this simple recipe, the chickpea is given center stage in a light soup that’ll warm you on the coldest winter day. Chickpea Soup Recipe Ingredients 1 can chickpeas 1/2 chopped red onion 1 tbsp. olive oil 1 tsp. garlic powder 1 tsp. cumin Splash of lemon juice 4 cups […]
