We all have those late night cold treat cravings. Mine happen pretty much every night, which is why I LOVE this recipe! It’s light and healthy, but still makes me feel like I’m indulging while catching up on my trash TV shows.   You can adjust the flavors to whatever you like, even add in peanut butter or cocoa powder for a chocolate version!   Strawberry Sorbet Recipe Ingredients 1 banana, chopped and frozen 1/2 c. frozen strawberries Instructions Take […]

5 Minute Mayonnaise

Almost every day for school my girls request sandwiches for their lunches. They love them loaded up with turkey, cheese, and a lot of Mayo. We go through it fast in our house and a lot of times I’ve sent them to school with dry sandwiches because mama forget to buy more mayo :). Recently I learned how easy and quick it is to make your own mayo at home, and the Magic Bullet is the PERFECT machine to make it! It […]

Spinach Feta Pinwheels

When asked about my favorite appetizer to make, I always think of these spinach feta pinwheels. They are really easy to make, and they freeze well days before you need them! Chopped frozen spinach and a frozen puff pastry sheet makes the job stress-free. All you have to do is wait for the spinach and puff pastry to thaw, then mix up the spinach with feta cheese and nutmeg in your Magic Bullet and spread it on the top. An […]

Homemade Spinach Tortillas

Homemade tortillas are the best! They taste so fresh compared to store-bought tortillas, and don’t have any preservatives. You can make a larger batch and freeze them for later use, too. My toddler is a bit of a picky eater, and doesn’t like to eat vegetables. I try to sneak them in any way I can, and these spinach tortillas are just one example. Fresh spinach is puréed in the Magic Bullet, then mixed with flour and olive oil to […]

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 […]
