Another bean post?! I really have come a long way, haven’t I Mom? This spread, though. Let me tell you. It’ll make you a believer. A bean believer. A bean-liever. Yeah I just went there. The best part about this bruschetta though is that it is absolutely perfect for summertime BBQs. It’s simple and it’s quick and when you brush bread with olive oil and then put it on the grill, something magical happens. When you top that magical bread […]

Dear Diary, For my last meal in San Francisco, my  mom and I made broiled salmon with Italian salsa verde. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this style of salsa verde, it’s a cold rustic sauce that can be served with any assortment of vegetables, fishes and meats. Filled with fresh herbs and other tasty ingredients, this sauce is perfection. Trust me. Although I was sad to leave San Francisco the next day and, thus, conclude my Magic […]

Hi! While I was in San Francisco visiting my parents, I made the most heavenly key lime pie with graham cracker crust. I used my Magic Bullet for both the crust and the filling. The Bullet crumbled the graham crackers, blended together all the key lime ingredients and basically made my life much easier. This wondrous pie was quite possibly my proudest Magic Bullet creation. I was so pleased with the results that I kept asking my mom to take […]

“Hang in there!” Colin says mockingly as he flies past the rest of our group of seven runners setting out to cover the last quarter of the Angeles Crest 100 Ultra Marathon. “Don’t give up! Lookin’ good… besides the fact that I just flew past you and you look like your dying,” he laughs. “What’s with runners saying that as they pass each other?” The running joke for the night has been set. It’s 8 p.m. and we’re just starting […]

runner feat

You know that runner’s high? The high that makes you feel light, happy, and empowered after a long jog or marathon? Turns out, it’s a real thing. Researchers at the University of Arizona are saying that ‘runner’s high’ is a real, chemical process that happens in the human body. When you exercise aerobically – basically exercise to get your heart rate up – your body actually makes cannabinoids, the same kind of chemicals found in marijuana. It may be an […]

I used to be a hummus-hater. Seriously. Honestly, I used to hate every kind of bean, period. I wouldn’t touch chili with a ten-foot pole. Burritos were filled with only meat, rice and cheese. I was basically a weirdo. Luckily, I have since had a change of heart, and thanks to a del taco 79¢ bean and cheese burrito in high school, I have risen above my bean-eschewing ways. Refried beans and I are now the best of friends, and […]

Another Olympic season has arrived and with it, a worldwide appreciation of the always-advancing talents and mastered skills of the planet’s best athletes. Competitors represent their countries with perfectly balanced human motion through water and air and across the ground as they aim to raise the bar of their chosen sport.

Hello Magic Bullet Heads, The other day, my mom taught me how to make the famous granola that she and my dad eat every morning for breakfast. My mom started making her own granola because, in her words, “the stuff at the store was getting too expensive and just stopped tasting good.”  If you share a similar sentiment and have never tried making your own granola, then I highly recommend taking the plunge. Not only is this granola super easy to […]
