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 […]

salmon

Herb butters are on my brain lately, after making an incredibly good one-pan meal of pork tenderloin the other day. I try to eat at least a few meals of fish each week and am able to get great herbs at the farmer’s market this time of year, so I turned to my Magic Bullet to create a quick, easy and delicious salmon dinner. The key to this meal is the mixture of acid, fat, and flavor. The herb butter […]

Have you ever tried ricotta cream before? I have only had it once in a dessert dish and loved it. In this healthier version, ricotta cheese is blended with plain yogurt, honey and a dash of cinnamon. Ricotta cream goes great with many desserts, but I also like to enjoy it with a cup of fresh fruit in the morning. Ricotta cheese is high in protein and low in calories, making it a healthy addition to breakfast. You won’t miss […]

Carrot soup is a regular side dish in our family. After making it for so many years, I decided to change things up a little and add tahini. I now don’t make carrot soup without it, because it tastes so much more interesting than a plain carrot soup. A pinch of turmeric gives the soup a nice, bright color, and pistachios add another pop of color and texture while acting as a delicious topping. This recipe makes four servings, so you […]

It’s spriiiiiiiiiiiiing. Finally! Actually not really, we had a pretty mild winter here in DC. Anyway, though, you can get stuff at the farmer’s market in spring that you can’t get any other time of year. Like ramps! OK, if you’re over ramps, I don’t know what to tell you — I see the point but I think they’re delicious. And if you combine ramps with their springtime partner asparagus, you get a once-a-year treat that takes a bowl of […]

I never thought of hummus as a dessert item until I came across brownie batter hummus at my grocery store. What a great idea! Here is how the magic happens: the garbanzo beans are used for texture, and the chocolate, sugar and coconut is used for flavor. Brilliant. This brownie batter hummus dip goes great with fresh fruit or cookies, and makes for a fun appetizer at a party. Brownie Batter Hummus Recipe Ingredients 1 can (15.5 oz) garbanzo beans […]

This delicious chicken dish is both savory and hearty without being too heavy. The mustard and balsamic vinegar sauce brings together the tartness of both the mustard and the vinegar while really cutting through the richness of the chicken. Best of all, the sauce all comes together in the Magic Bullet with minimal work and fuss. Chicken Legs with Mustard and Balsamic Ingredients 4 chicken legs, cut into thighs and drumsticks 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar 2 tbl dijon mustard 1 tbl honey […]

Avocados are smooth, creamy and incredibly satisfying. What better food to turn into a healthy chilled soup that’s great as an appetizer or a light meal?

Chilled Avocado Soup Recipe Ingredients 1 avocado 1/3 serrano pepper 1 cup milk 1 cup chicken broth 1/2 tbsp. […]

marinade

I just LOVE this marinade. It’s so quick to pull together and is just packed with so much flavor! Something good definitely follows when your recipe ingredients contain limes, ranch, and cilantro. You can add it to chicken or fish and marinade it for a few hours, or just add it on right before you bake it. Lime Cilantro Ranch Marinade Recipe Ingredients ½ cup cilantro 1 lime, juiced 4 tb. olive oil 2 tsps. sugar Instructions Add all ingredients […]
