Who doesn’t love a parfait? Yogurt, fruit, granola and some natural sweetener? Sign me up! In most parfaits, those ingredients remain separated. Here, though, we’re using the Magic Bullet to blend them together, creating a new breakfast treat that’s delicious through-and-through. It’s not often that healthy and tasty overlap so emphatically! Blended Breakfast Parfait Ingredients 3/4 cup yogurt 1/3 to 1/2 cup mixed berries 1/4 cup granola 1 tsp. honey or agave Instructions Combine all ingredients in Magic Bullet and […]

Spicy Paprika Salmon

Today I am sharing one of my favorite go-to dishes to make when guests come to our place for dinner: spicy paprika salmon.

Sheet-pan Chicken Fajitas

Here’s a question I get pretty often: if you cook dinner after work, when do you actually eat? And the answer is: usually, not that late! The key is developing straightforward “go to’s” that can be on the table quickly. And in my opinion, if a dish is going to be a weeknight regular, it should be healthy, too. In that spirit, I present to you sheet-pan chicken fajitas. This dish is almost too good to be true: the sizzle […]

Creamy Sweet Potato Pasta Sauce

Years ago, before I had children, I went through a vegan phase. Still to this day, I love my vegan and vegetarian dishes even though I don’t fully eat that way any more. I remember often craving creamy pasta dishes made with heavy cream and loads of parmesan cheese! This was a dish I’ve made for years to satisfy that craving. I’ve made it for many non-vegans as well, and they have all loved it! You won’t even notice there […]
