goat cheese stuffed portobello mushrooms with walnuts

I recently discovered a delicious new side dish: stuffed Portobello mushroom caps. Normally, you may think of stuffed mushrooms as an appetizer, but these Portobello mushroom caps are so huge that they are probably better as a side! In fact, two people could probably share one. Goat cheese is blended with herbs and breadcrumbs to form a creamy stuffing for these large mushrooms, which are then baked in the oven. I love the combination of goat cheese and walnuts, so […]

salmon with lemon chive butter recipe

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 […]

magic bullet tahini and turmeric carrot soup recipe

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. Now, I don’t make carrot soup without it because it tastes way 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 will have to blend […]

ramp and asparagus pesto sauce recipe

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 […]
