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.

Mashed Maple and Apricot Dip Recipe Ingredients 1 cup dried apricot 1 tbsp. maple syrup 1/2 tsp. lemon juice Instructions Boil apricots for about 10 minutes to soften. Let cool […]

butter

I discovered honey butter about a year ago while I was on vacation. I had just taken a seat at a family-owned American restaurant in North Lake Tahoe, CA, and a few moments later I was greeted with a large plate of homemade cornbread and a side of freshly whipped honey butter. The honey butter tasted so good! Now whenever I make cornbread, I always whip up a side of honey butter in my Magic Bullet to go along with it. I […]

chicken

This chicken dish is incredibly flavorful, thanks to a slice of prosciutto, spinach and goat cheese wrapped up inside. As the chicken cooks in broth, the flavor of the prosciutto coats each chicken breast. After cooking, the broth you use to cook the chicken in the skillet can be used as a flavorful lemon sauce. You can add a little flour to thicken it up, or leave it alone. Serve the chicken rolls with a side of rice or couscous […]

SPPasta

Years ago, before I had children, I went through a vegan phase. Still to this day, I love my vegan and vegetarian dishes even though I don’t fully eat that way any more. I remember often craving creamy pasta dishes made with heavy cream and loads of parmesan cheese! This was a dish I’ve made for years to satisfy that craving. I’ve made it for many non-vegans as well, and they have all loved it! You won’t even notice there […]

tofu

Do you know mapo tofu? This classic Chinese meal uses an unusual (to the American palette) combo of ground beef and tofu for an incredibly interesting effect. The combination of the meaty beef and the silken tofu creates a fascinating textural contrast, and the beef combined with fermented ingredients creates an incredibly savory mouthfeel. Plus, the famous Sichuan peppercorns are used to generate a distinctive, spicy-but-vaguely-numbing effect. This recipe requires a few unusual ingredients that you may need to go online to […]
