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.

cold-noodles9

I was in Philly a few months back, doing something of a noodle crawl – it was pho-tastic – and one of the best things that I had was a dish that was not pho. It was a bowl of “Burmese cold noodles” at a little restaurant called Stock. It had a great mix of funky, chewy, crunchy, floral, and rich flavors… I just knew I had to make it myself. This required a fair amount of reverse engineering. The […]

All you need is a can of refried beans, sour cream, cumin and chili powder. After blending all […]

Strawberry-Daq-1a

This recipe is natural, decadent and delicious. A strawberry daiquiri on its own is a force to be reckoned with: a fresh strawberry smoothie with alcohol? Yes please! Combine that with slightly whipped coconut cream, though, and you’re in a different league of tasty. With the Magic Bullet’s help, we’re not only blending the daiquiri, we’re creating powdered sugar and whipping our own coconut cream. Coconut Cream Strawberry Daiquiri Ingredients 1 1/2 cups fresh strawberries, sliced 1 1/2 cups ice […]

toast

Breakfast time is hectic and it’s easy to get stuck in a rut eating the same thing every day. My kids LOVE cereal, but I always feel like it sends them off to school with a tummy full of empty calories and sugar. On the other hand, I love toast because I can top it with pretty much anything and can guarantee that my kids will get a good and filling breakfast. Not to mention any breakfast that takes less than […]

I guess I must be exploring a theme, because this month, I’ve been making and eating a ton of bean dishes that are a bit like chili (in that they are warming and delicious), but that also happen to take advantage of totally different flavor profiles. Even better if they’re quick and easy and cheap, like this dish is. This recipe, adapted from Food and Wine magazine, uses a bunch of clever tricks to pack a lot of Indian flavor […]

Dark-Chocolate-Pudding-1 copy

On its own, pure chocolate can be a great treat, but, let’s be honest, it’s rarely a satisfying snack. It’s something you usually enjoy in moderation and usually not abundance (unless it’s been one of those weeks…) Chocolate pudding, on the other hand, satisfies your sweet tooth without putting you into that food coma that so many other indulgent desserts do. I used a dark chocolate bar as the foundation in this recipe. The brown sugar, vanilla and cocoa powder balance […]

Have you ever thought about eating popsicles for breakfast? I attended a brunch once and, yes, they were in fact serving breakfast popsicles! I thought this was a really cool idea and decided to make them at home for quick grab-and-go breakfast. All you need is yogurt (plain or vanilla), your favorite fruit jam, and your favorite granola. Most yogurts are too thick alone, so you’ll need to use your Magic Bullet to blend in a little milk. You can also […]
