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 […]

Recreating Chinese-American food classics at home: What’s the point? Can’t you just get delivery? I’ll tell you the point: it’s healthier, tastier, and cheaper. (I won’t say “faster” because that’s just silly.) Case in point: this beef with broccoli and scallions with loads of roasted broccoli and extra scallions. Believe it or not, the standard kitchen in China does not include an oven, so you’re verrrrry unlikely to find roasted broccoli in a Chinese-American dish. But it’s delicious: the roasting […]

Are you tired of your same old breakfast routine? Here is a refreshing, new pancake recipe that is sure to be your new favorite! In addition to all-purpose flour, coconut flour is blended with fresh banana, eggs and milk to create a pancake flavor you won’t be able to get enough of. They are a great way to use up bananas going bad. I like to serve these coconut banana pancakes with fresh fruit and honey. Coconut Banana Pancakes Ingredients […]

One of my favorite quick mommy lunches to make are hummus quesadillas. For some reason the hummus and the melty cheese pair so perfectly together! I love to switch up my hummus flavors every so often, and black bean hummus is always my go to. I don’t need any crazy ingredients, which means I usually have it always on hand. This one comes together so simply. You can use it for dipping salty tortilla chips in or crispy fresh veggies! […]

Have you ever had one of those days where you just can’t decide which smoothie you want to make? I was having one of those days recently, and couldn’t decide between a raspberry smoothie or mango smoothie. Both sounded so delicious! I finally decided to make a layered smoothie using both! This layered smoothie reminds me of a summer sunrise from the colors. You can layer it more than just once like I did to make it look even nicer. […]

I am always looking for new ways to spice up my lunch and snack! Sometimes the same old hummus and veggies can get boring, which is why I love this Tzatziki sauce. I usually make a loaded veggie sandwich for lunch, and this sauce pairs perfectly with it. It also makes a great veggie dip for later on in the day when I’m needing something to snack on. The best thing is that it’s so easy to make, especially using […]

Eggplant has always been a difficult fruit for me to use in recipes. By the way, are you surprised I said fruit? Many people think eggplant is a vegetable, but it is actually a fruit! It is really healthy since it contains a lot of vitamins, minerals and fiber. My signature recipe is eggplant Parmesan, which we are really tired of by now.  I saw an eggplant roll appetizer recipe in an old issue of Fine Cooking magazine that inspired […]

This rich, dark chocolate cake has a secret ingredient: avocado! Avocado replaces butter in this mouth-watering cake to make it soft and moist. The obvious health benefits of this substitution is definitely a plus! Even the chocolate frosting is made with avocado instead of butter. Now you can enjoy chocolate cake for dessert without feeling so guilty, since avocados provide you with healthy fats. I used my Magic Bullet blender to make both the cake batter and the chocolate frosting […]

Fennel is… strange. The middle of it looks like celery, the top of it (the “fronds”) look like Muppet hair, and the bottom like… fennel. And the whole thing tastes like licorice. And then there are fennel seeds, which also sort of taste like licorice, or maybe like anise? And where do the seeds come from? Anyway, put aside your fennel confusion, because it turns out that chopped fennel makes a tasty, crunchy, vaguely licorice-y salad, especially when dressed in […]

  What is your favorite cream cheese flavor? You can probably guess mine from the title of this recipe post! Indeed my favorite cream cheese flavor is artichoke and chive. It is so easy to make with my Magic Bullet that I rarely use plain cream cheese on my bagels anymore. All you need is plain cream cheese, fresh chives, and canned quartered artichoke hearts (the quartered kind makes them easier to chop up before tossing into your Magic Bullet). […]

These mini blueberry swirl cheesecakes are always a hit in my house. Maybe it is because they are so versatile. They make great afternoon snacks, desserts, or even breakfast bites. You can use your Magic Bullet to grind up graham crackers before turning them into a crust, and then to blend up a delicious cheesecake batter that you will bake in your muffin pan. Not a fan of blueberries? No problem! This mini cheesecake recipe can be adjusted to use […]
