Artichoke Chive Cream Cheese

  What is your favorite cream cheese flavor? You can probably guess mine from the title of this recipe post! Indeed my favorite cream cheese flavor is artichoke and chive. It is so easy to make with my Magic Bullet that I rarely use plain cream cheese on my bagels anymore. All you need is plain cream cheese, fresh chives, and canned quartered artichoke hearts (the quartered kind makes them easier to chop up before tossing into your Magic Bullet). […]

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 […]

Honey Butter

I discovered honey butter about a year ago while I was on vacation. I had just taken a seat at a family-owned American restaurant in North Lake Tahoe, CA, and a few moments later I was greeted with a large plate of homemade cornbread and a side of freshly whipped honey butter. The honey butter tasted so good! Now whenever I make cornbread, I always whip up a side of honey butter in my Magic Bullet to go along with it. I […]

Fennel Bean Soup

  Fennel is one of my favorite vegetables to cook with, because it is incredibly flavorful. It also adds wonderful flavor to soups. In this soup recipe, I combine chopped fennel with onion, tomatoes, broccoli, kale and white beans. By blending half of the soup and adding it back in, you create a nice, creamy texture. Chop off the fronds and add on top of the soup for an elegant presentation! Fennel Bean Soup Recipe Ingredients 2 tbsp olive oil […]

Pasta carbonara

Spaghetti carbonara… it’s a classic, easy, delicious, cheap, and hearty dinner, so why haven’t you made it? If you don’t know what carbonara is, you’re in for a treat. This classic, Roman dish consists of bacon, barely cooked eggs and parmesan, to create a rich, delicious pasta sauce. Although I’ve made carbonara many times before, this one follows a new recipe from Serious Eats, which involves more egg yolks and less bacon and cheese than other recipes. The result is particularly eggy […]

Red Velvet Beet Cupcakes

Red velvet cupcakes are my weakness. Especially with cream cheese frosting. February is the perfect month to bake red velvet cupcakes in order to celebrate Valentine’s Day. This year, I give you a healthier version, using fresh beets in this cupcake recipe. The beets give the cupcakes a beautiful, natural color and moist texture. We don’t need to use any artificial food dyes or a lot of butter in this recipe, which makes it much healthier! Go ahead and eat […]

Sushi Bowls

“Bowls”: I know, trending right now. I’m sorry to be part of the trend. I really am. But, what can I say? Sometimes trends happen for a reason. (I still like pesto.) Anyway, if you haven’t tried making sushi bowls, you’re in for a treat: it turns out that a lot of the magic going on behind the sushi counter is about presentation. You can make a perfectly delicious, sushi-like creation with only a few simple ingredients. I use brown […]
