The Multiple Personalities of Coffee

Do you like your coffee with a shot of Kahlua? Do you take it extra large, put it on the tab? Are you a coffee snob who’ll only drink coffee that’s been French pressed? 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 […]

Hello Magic Bullet Heads, My San Francisco Magic Bullet Tour continues! Last night, my dad and I joined cooking forces and made an incredible teriyaki fried chicken dinner! I love cooking with my dad because he’s always just as hungry as me, if not more so.  I once watched him eat a leftover turkey burger right before dinner and claim it was his “appetizer.” He just couldn’t wait to eat. Basically cooking with my dad means stuff gets done fast […]

I know, I know. It’s not fall. Which means you’re probably eating watermelon and not squash. But you know what, I live in Hawaii. We don’t have any seasons. So I am going to eat whatever I feel like. Whenever I see it. So for all you seasonal-eating, farmers-market shopping, actually-have-leaves-that-fall-kind of people that I’m so very jealous of.. well…put this one in your box until October. Or, don’t. Be a little bit like me and eat some fall in […]

Hi! Hi! Hi! Ever since I made mint brownies with my Magic Bullet, I can’t stop baking with the thing! While visiting my parents in San Francisco,  my mom and I made a dozen mini oatmeal muffins. Sweet, hearty and oh-so-easy to make. It’ll take you no time at all and will leave you and your kitchen in a pleasant state afterwards. Also, these muffins taste amazing. The combo of  brown sugar and syrup adds a nice maple flavor, which can’t be beat. Much […]

You go to the super market and pick the ripest looking tomato you can find. You dig through mountains of red succulent fruits to find the perfect few that will make it to your dinner table; heck, you might even go for the tomatoes that are vine-rippened: fresh, bright red, and bursting with flavor. Then you get home only to find that your beautiful tomato is …flavorless. It’s what you get when you combine science and beauty. Scientists stumbled upon […]

Greetings from San Francisco – my homeland, my place of birth! A few days ago, I drove from Los Angeles to San Francisco to spend some quality time with my parents. So glad I brought along my trusty Magic Bullet Blender! This morning, I woke up starving and immediately began rummaging through my parents’ refrigerator. I hit the jackpot! Using the treasures found in my parents’ fridge and the power of my Magic Bullet, I made the lightest and fluffiest […]

Living in Southern California, we eat a lot of Mexican food. Most of what I eat is the sort of ‘Baja’ variety with lots of bright colored fruits and veggies, grilled meats, seafood, etc. It makes a lot of sense really, since we share much of Mexico’s climate, which means we can grow the same produce. Salsas are ubiquitous in Mexico, because, well, they go on everything! A salsa can be sweet, sour, spicy, fruity, salty, etc. etc. They also […]

  From the sunny beaches of California to the craggy slopes of Mount Everest, (yes, there are even marathons at the world’s highest elevations…) there’s a landscape fit for every single kind of runner. Runners new to the sport should obviously not run in extreme terrains. Simply running around your neighborhood is a wonderful place to begin! For those with the endurance to run a full marathon, the ING New York City Marathon and Honda LA Marathon follow relatively flat […]

Oh yes, folks. I did. Well actually, I haven’t yet. But let me now: there are black beans in these brownies. WAIT! Don’t leave! Don’t be like I was and say “Seriously, why would you go and try to make brownies healthier? That’s blasphemous. Plus it sounds disgusting.” Because that’s what I said for several weeks until I broke down and had to try it, and people, those were several weeks that I could have been eating double the brownies […]

Hello Magic Bullet Heads! Last night, I stared down at my dinner plate of microwaved leftovers and felt really sad. “I deserve better than this!” I screamed into the night (my microwave). Since eating these leftovers was something I just had to do, I decided to make some delicious roasted garlic bread with parsley and oregano to bring a little joy to a sad plate of food. Although I normally eat garlic bread simply made with olive oil and garlic, […]

Sometimes, we all have those days. You know the ones I mean. You press snooze one too many times. You stub your toe on the way out the door, and realize you forgot to put on deodorant. You rush to work with sleep still in your eyes and your hair matted to the side of your face. It’s not going to be a good day. And then someone says it, why, you have no idea, but it happens every time: […]
