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 […]

Mini Chocolate Cheesecakes

One of my good friends has a “specialty dessert,” and I get so excited every time she makes them: mini cheesecakes! I have always wanted to try making them in a chocolate version and finally created a delicious mini chocolate cheesecake recipe using my Magic Bullet. The ganache layer on top is optional, especially if chocolate cheesecake is already rich enough for you, but I love including it when I make these. I can’t get enough chocolate! Leave them plain, or […]

Low-Fat Smoked Salmon “Cream Cheese”

I know, I know. “Low-fat.” Very 1990s. But. But. What if I were to offer you a simple way to lighten up one of life’s great pleasures? Would that be so wrong? Not diet food, exactly, but here’s a lighter version of ye olde bagel with smoked salmon and cream cheese. Forgive me: Of course, the Magic Bullet takes well to making spreads of all kinds, and my colleague Kristianne has a great recipe for herbed salmon spread. Here I […]

Garden Vegetable Cream Cheese

Bagels are my weakness. I can’t resist a bagel smothered in cream cheese, especially flavored cream cheese. My favorite is the garden vegetable flavor you can find at many bagel shops or at the grocery store. Flavored cream cheeses can be expensive, so I prefer to make my own. For this garden vegetable cream cheese, all you need is a few common vegetables you probably already have in your refrigerator and some cream cheese. The Magic Bullet makes it quick […]

Sundried Tomato and Basil Cream Cheese

I go through phases of loving one thing and then eating so much of it that I can’t eat it anymore. This happened with light cream cheese. I used to eat it on half of a whole wheat bagel for so many days in a row that I can’t remember, and then one day I was so sick of it all of a sudden! Solution? Get creative with cream cheese flavors! Now, the flavored cream cheese at the store is […]

Big Apple Bagel by Lizzie

Happy Monday everyone! As I write this I’m still trying to wipe the sleep from my tired eyes.   Why are Mondays so hard? Why can’t we start the day on Tuesday? *sigh*   So, it’s almost impossible to walk down the street in The Big Apple without finding a delicious bagel spot. I could probably make a Google Map just pinpointing my favorites, but then you would all know my secret spots and I wouldn’t be able to enjoy […]
