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

This is incredibly easy 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 “croquettes” from Trader Joe’s, warmed up in […]

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! Or so they say. You can also break them up and use them in a delicious pasta just like any other pasta, except with nice chewiness, softness, breadth and all the things that you love about lasagna with completely different flavors. 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 add creamy ricotta to […]
