Asian Garlic Noodle Stir-Fry

This homemade Asian stir-fry dish is better than take-out and almost as easy to throw together on a busy weeknight. Fresh chopped vegetables are sautéed and tossed with a homemade soy sauce-based sauce and yakisoba noodles. The yakisoba noodles can be found in the refrigerator section of your local grocery store near the tofu. They only need to sit in hot water for a few minutes and they are ready to eat! This dish is perfect for preparing ahead of time […]

Tuna Noodle Casserole

This is a delicious, easy-to-make, rich meal that combines unusual flavors to create a retro classic. It’s like if fettucine alfredo had a baby with a tuna fish sandwich and it was all topped with potato chips. The Magic Bullet comes in handy for making a delicious, creamy sauce, and cooking the pasta in the pan makes this an easy, one pot meal. Tuna Noodle Casserole Ingredients 1 lb egg noodle pasta 1.5 cups creme fraiche or sour cream 2 eggs […]

Beef with Broccoli and Scallions

Recreating Chinese-American food classics at home: What’s the point? Can’t you just get delivery? I’ll tell you the point: it’s healthier, tastier, and cheaper. (I won’t say “faster” because that’s just silly.) Case in point: this beef with broccoli and scallions with loads of roasted broccoli and extra scallions. Believe it or not, the standard kitchen in China does not include an oven, so you’re verrrrry unlikely to find roasted broccoli in a Chinese-American dish. But it’s delicious: the roasting […]

Chicken with Honey Miso Butter

Yeah, that just sounds good, doesn’t it? This recipe features a bunch of delicious tasting notes: miso and umami are salty, honey is sweet, butter is rich, and when the combo hits the chicken and is roasted it creates a flavorful, crispy skin. The miso, though a bit of an exotic ingredient, really blends into the background here, creating a rich and beguiling flavor without being noticeably unusual. Your kids will love it (if you have kids). The Magic Bullet does […]

Vegan Sweet Potato Shepard’s Pie

You won’t miss the meat in this vegan version of a Shepard’s Pie. Green lentils replace the meat and serve as a hearty filling when cooked with onion, garlic and peas. Sweet potatoes are blended in the Magic Bullet to creamy perfection, and then spread over the top of the pie to serve as a colorful crust. Bread crumbs and fresh rosemary add the final touches. Serve this hearty pie as a main dish along with a crusty piece of […]

Salmon with Tarragon-Lemon-Chive Butter

Herb butters are on my brain lately, after making an incredibly good one-pan meal of pork tenderloin the other day. I try to eat at least a few meals of fish each week and am able to get great herbs at the farmer’s market this time of year, so I turned to my Magic Bullet to create a quick, easy and delicious salmon dinner. The key to this meal is the mixture of acid, fat, and flavor. The herb butter […]

Carrot Tahini Soup

Carrot soup is a regular side dish in our family. After making it for so many years, I decided to change things up a little and add tahini. I now don’t make carrot soup without it, because it tastes so much more interesting than a plain carrot soup. A pinch of turmeric gives the soup a nice, bright color, and pistachios add another pop of color and texture while acting as a delicious topping. This recipe makes four servings, so you […]

Asparagus-Ramp Pesto Sauce

It’s spriiiiiiiiiiiiing. Finally! Actually not really, we had a pretty mild winter here in DC. Anyway, though, you can get stuff at the farmer’s market in spring that you can’t get any other time of year. Like ramps! OK, if you’re over ramps, I don’t know what to tell you — I see the point but I think they’re delicious. And if you combine ramps with their springtime partner asparagus, you get a once-a-year treat that takes a bowl of […]

Chicken Legs with Mustard and Balsamic

This delicious chicken dish is both savory and hearty without being too heavy. The mustard and balsamic vinegar sauce brings together the tartness of both the mustard and the vinegar while really cutting through the richness of the chicken. Best of all, the sauce all comes together in the Magic Bullet with minimal work and fuss. Chicken Legs with Mustard and Balsamic Ingredients 4 chicken legs, cut into thighs and drumsticks 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar 2 tbl dijon mustard 1 tbl honey […]

Asparagus Zucchini Pizza

For your next pizza night, I challenge you to try something completely different! This asparagus and zucchini pizza is packed with fresh lemon flavor, which compliments the garlic ricotta cheese base nicely. There are so many flavors going on in this pizza, your taste buds will go crazy. The asparagus is boiled before, so it is nice and tender. You can add other vegetables as toppings if you would like, but it also tastes great with the asparagus and zucchini […]
