The Multiple Personalities of Coffee

Do you like your coffee with a shot of Kahlua? Do you take it extra large, put it on the tab? Are you a coffee snob who’ll only drink coffee that’s been French pressed? 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. However you take it, let’s agree that coffee is awesome and you should love every […]

One of the Magic Bullet’s best qualities is that it allows you to be in control of what you’re eating. Store-bought yogurt is limiting and doesn’t always offer flavor varieties that are specific to your unique taste. Even when they do, some brands are loaded with sugar. This recipe combines plain yogurt with blueberries, a hint of maple syrup and a handful of almonds for a hearty and texture-filled breakfast yogurt that beats out anything you’ll find in the local grocery […]

I realized that we’ve been having the same few drinks over and over for dinner, lately – 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! Okay, so I guess it isn’t really a true spritzer since this is a non-alcoholic beverage, but it’s just as refreshing! The blackberries give it a nice fruity taste that’s not too sweet, while the basil adds a […]

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, 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! The tomato gods have delivered us this new gift, and you […]

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 one of the best parts? After rolling it out, you don’t need to worry about making it look pretty. That’s why it is a galette! Simply fold the edges up into the filling, put it in […]

If it’s cold and you’ve been eating a lot of chili (or a lot of chili-like bean dishes), you’ve probably made a lot of cornbread to eat with that chili. And if you’ve been making lots of cornbread, then there’s a possibility that you’ll find yourself with extras. Of course, you can console yourself by eating cornbread with maple syrup for breakfast but, while there’s certainly nothing wrong with that, you might be hankering for something new after a few […]

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.” After you try this carrot purée dip, though, you’ll start seeing dips in another light. This recipe uses the Magic Bullet to blend carrots 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 tsp. cumin 1 tsp. […]

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 so you’ll need another plan. That’s what led me to giving scrambled egg salad […]
