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 […]

On a hot day, as the sweat trickles down our temples, all we want to do is reach for a tall, ice-cold glass of water. But maybe reaching for a hot cup of tea is better? According to Joe Palca, writer for NPR’s food blog The Salt, drinking something hot during a hot day may have a better chance of cooling you off than something cold will. It’s counterintuitive, but the receptors on our tongues send messages to our brains […]

margarita

It’s a bold statement to make, I’m aware, but trust me when I tell you I’m something of an expert on margaritas. I prefer tequila to all other spirits, but truth be told I haven’t had a frozen margarita for years. I am the queen of on-the-rocks. I like my margarita strong, and without any of that fake sour mix or pre-made margarita mix crap. I like to play with the addition of seasonal fruits, vegetable and juices as well, […]

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-ripened: 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 […]
