Plum Goat Cheese Crostini

Besides the brilliant color of this plum jam, you and your guests are going to love the sweet and tangy flavor combination of this plum goat cheese crostini! The plum jam is really easy to make: just add freshly chopped plums to a pot of boiling water and a little sugar and let it simmer down and then cool into a thick jam. Add more or less sugar to your taste preference. My favorite way to serve this crostini dish […]

Whole Wheat Raisin Carrot Loaf

This moist, spiced raisin carrot bread loaf is made with whole wheat flour and tastes just like carrot cake (even though it is much healthier!). The Magic Bullet does all the work by blending all of the ingredients together, leaving the carrots and raisins to stir in last before popping it into the oven. While it’s baking, this carrot loaf makes your home smell amazing! Bake as a gift for a friend, or enjoy it all yourself (we won’t tell). […]

Strawberry Cream Cheese Honey Almond Toast

Breakfast time is hectic and it’s easy to get stuck in a rut eating the same thing every day. My kids LOVE cereal, but I always feel like it sends them off to school with a tummy full of empty calories and sugar. On the other hand, I love toast because I can top it with pretty much anything and can guarantee that my kids will get a good and filling breakfast. Not to mention any breakfast that takes less than […]

Avocado Tomato Crostini

If you didn’t know, crostini in Italian means “little crusts.” Whenever I want a quick healthy snack, I love to make these crispy avocado tomato crostini. Baguette slices are slightly toasted in the oven, then topped with a creamy avocado spread and fresh sliced cherry tomatoes. In addition to making a great snack, these crostini make a delicious appetizer tray. I like to whip these crostini up while making dinner so nobody goes hungry waiting for dinner to be ready. […]

Healthy Zucchini Bread

As I wandered around the farmer’s market recently in tears because summer’s over – OK, that’s an exaggeration – I stumbled across a huuuuge zucchini on sale for $1.50. $1.50! That’s like, 50 cents a pound. I won’t repeat my zucchini-eating hamster antics of last month (or the hamster-eating zucchini antics of the month before…), but I decided now is as good a time as any to make healthy zucchini bread. What does zucchini even taste like, and why put […]

Easy Whole Wheat French Toast

French toast is my dad’s breakfast specialty. I used to love waking up on the weekends to his special french toast breakfast! Although my favorite french toast is made with brioche, whole wheat bread is healthier. With the Magic Bullet, you can make a healthy french toast breakfast in almost no time! Blending the batter makes it nice and airy. You can top the french toast with fruit, powdered sugar, maple syrup, or even Nutella! My favorite topping is bananas, […]

Procrastination Nation Bread (Light Banana Bread)

One of the many things I like about banana bread is the way it rewards procrastination. Oh, you left a bunch of bananas on the counter until they were overripe and started to attract fruit flies? Usually, this kind of situation would end badly for our hero: you snooze, you lose; the early bird gets the worm; etc. But not with banana bread. No, banana bread rewards our hero with a rich, delicious treat that can only be made once […]

Healthy Banana Bread

Do you know what the best use of old bananas is? Banana bread, of course! This recipe uses some whole wheat flour in place of all-purpose flour for extra fiber and walnuts for healthy omega-3 fatty acids. It is perfectly moist and great for breakfast or snacktime! The Magic Bullet makes this recipe quick and easy – just load up the large blender cup with the ingredients and pulse until you get a nice chunky batter. I love banana bread […]

Old Fashioned Biscuits

I love carbs almost as much as I love dessert. One of my favorite types of bread to eat are biscuits. They go with practically everything! I could eat them for breakfast with jam, lunch with soup, or dinner as a side with butter. Here is my go-to homemade biscuit recipe. Dip them in soups or drizzle gravy over the top and serve them with mashed potatoes. Yum! Ingredients: 2 cups all-purpose flour 2 1/2 tsp baking powder 1/4 tsp […]

Making your own Flour: It’s not just for Martha Stewart

So, I don’t know about all of you out there, but I grew up in a household that did not idolize Martha Stewart. I may or may not be mildly obsessed with all her craft products and drool-worthy recipes now, but growing up I thought she was a weirdo. Like, seriously. On her shows back then she would do something like, I don’t know, make butter, and I swear it would start with milking the cow. Who has a cow […]
