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 […]

BroccoliWhitePizza1_960

The first time I tried a white pizza was with my husband at a pizza restaurant close to where we live in the city. We accidentally ordered it from the menu. Growing up, all we ever had was pizza with red sauce, so we both completely missed that this restaurant offered a few pizzas with white sauce! He was not a fan, but I loved it. My favorite topping on white pizza sauce is broccoli. They go so well together. To make white pizza sauce, […]

Polenta is one of those things that makes you wonder exactly what you’ve been doing with your life. OK, that’s an overstatement, but still, you can whip up this delicious, rich, corny and creamy side dish in about fifteen minutes with minimal work and expense. It’s only about three ingredients. I buy polenta – rough ground cornmeal – from the Whole Foods bulk bins, and it’s comically cheap. If you’re waiting for the catch, the catch is that it took you […]

Have you ever seen golden beets? They’re a rare find, but I strongly prefer golden beets over red because they have a much more subtle flavor, but are still really healthy for you! Recently, I discovered they go incredibly well in pastas. Bake them in the oven, peel them, chop them up and toss them together with steamed kale, pine nuts, bow tie pasta and a light alfredo sauce quickly whipped up in your Magic Bullet and you have yourself a […]

Magic Bullet Recipe Shallot-Corn Arugula Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette

Here’s an easy, delicious side salad that goes well with almost anything. Bitter arugula contrasts nicely with sweet corn, made flavorful by browning in a pan, and rich, fragrant, and sweet shallots – all cut by a simple lemony vinaigrette that’s deliciously tart. This is incredibly easy – I used frozen corn – and hits all the flavor receptacles in your brain. Hat tip to Blue Apron for coming up with the recipe idea. I served this with some salmon […]

If you like sweet potatoes, you’re in for a treat, my friend! These lovely sweet potatoes are baked twice. Why? First to cook the filling, which is then blended together with milk, butter, and spices in the Magic Bullet and then stuffed back into the sweet potato shell and baked again. Oh, and don’t forget the sweet pecan topping, which bakes to perfection during the second baking session. I would almost consider these twice-baked sweet potatoes a dessert, but they also […]

Lasagna noodles should not be used for anything other than lasagna! Well… Or you can also break them up and use them in a delicious pasta just like any other pasta, except with nice chewiness and softness and breadth and all the things that you love about lasagna with completely different flavors. So there’s that. This is a nice, basically one-pot meal; you cook the sweet potatoes in the same pot as the noodles with delicious butter, thyme, and garlic, and […]

My husband’s favorite food has always been tacos, and sometimes it’s hard to switch up the flavors on something that wows him! Luckily, I know he loves spice, especially the kind that wakes him up! 😉 This sauce has been made repeatedly and added to pretty much everything he eats. Quesadillas, tacos, sandwiches, burgers, dips for French fries, you name it! If you have a spice-lover in your life, this sauce has their name written all over it! Give it […]

Pasta with Mushroom

Hey, what if you could make a pasta dish that was rich and satisfying and perfect for any day? Okay, that’s sort of my mantra (or is it my chakra?) but, in any event, this is an earthy and creamy dish that is pretty low in fat and makes a perfect weeknight dinner in 30 minutes or less. Sold? Sold. Adapted from Martha Stewart, that old so-and-so. Serve with truffle oil and/or pinot noir. Pasta with Mushroom and Ricotta Cream […]
