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.

The lamb takes on the flavors of cumin so well in this Chinese food dish. Recently I shared with you velveting, the Chinese method for keeping meat tender and delicious. Does it work with lamb?! Only one way to find out… Long story short: yes, it works! Tender, mildly chewy lamb, bursting with cumin flavor, smoky and spicy from poblano peppers, vegetable-y and vaguely healthy from lots of onion and green peppers, and tingly from Sichuan peppercorns. Puts new meaning […]

I’ve been making these cupcakes a long time for my kiddos, and they just love them! They are just the right amount of sweetness where no frosting is needed! Sweet potato purees work just as well as banana purees, so if you have extra sweet potato after making these muffins, then save them and add them into your next banana bread recipe!   Dairy-Free Sweet Potato Cupcake Recipe Ingredients 2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and diced 1.5 cups white whole […]

These days, there are many so-called healthy cookie recipes out there. This chocolate chip quinoa cookie recipe is one of my favorite healthy cookie recipes, because it still tastes like a satisfying dessert! It is made without butter, but instead creamy peanut butter and applesauce to give it a soft texture. Oats and quinoa give these cookies iron and protein. You won’t be disappointed! My whole family loves these. Chocolate Chip Quinoa Cookie Recipe Ingredients 1/2 cup cooked quinoa 1/2 […]

Hey, here’s an easy, delicious, and healthy weeknight dinner that uses some sneaky, flavor-packed ingredients to amp up the taste with very little work. And it all gets made in one pot. I guess that’s not very much for a recipe… OK, that’s pretty awesome for a recipe if you want to know the truth. If you don’t know preserved lemons, it’s time to work them into your repertoire. Tangy, funky, tart… they’re like the miso of citrus. Maybe not, […]

yogurt-1_fotor_fotor

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. 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 aisle. Blueberry Almond Yogurt Recipe Ingredients 1 cup plain or […]

I realized that lately we have been having the same few drinks over and over for dinner – 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. OK, so I guess it isn’t really a true spritzer since this is a non-alcoholic beverage. The blackberries give it a nice fruity taste that is not too sweet, while the basil adds unique dimension of […]

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 and 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! With such a long season! It’s amazing! The tomato gods […]
