Okay, my love for Sichuan Chinese food may be getting a little out of control, but here’s a recipe for a healthy, delicious side dish that packs a TON of flavor and is extremely easy to make.

Pomegranate Mint Spritzer

There is something about sparkling drinks that make them more sophisticated than other drinks. If you add sparkling water to any plain juice, it magically transforms into a fancy drink. In this non-alcoholic spritzer, sparkling water is mixed with pomegranate juice and lime juice in the Magic Bullet blender, and infused with mint, lime wedges and fresh pomegranate seeds. These flavors combined with carbonation create a refreshing drink suitable for any special occasion. Pomegranate Mint Spritzer Recipe Ingredients 2 cups […]

I’ve used a nut milk bag to filter the […]

Arugula Pesto Pasta Sauce Recipe

Is there anything more delicious than pesto? Or anything better suited to the Magic Bullet? If there is, I don’t know it. I like to change up the pesto sauces I make and this time I  swapped the traditional basil pesto with fresh arugula pesto. Subtle, yet delicious: the arugula is peppery and vaguely woody, giving it a nice but none-too-bold flavor. I picked up some fresh pasta at the farmer’s market here in DC, as well as some delicious […]

Butternut Squash Quesadilla

I have been making this butternut squash quesadilla almost daily for the past few weeks because it is just that good.  Just like I do with my kiddos, I try my best to incorporate a vegetable at least 2 out of the 3 meals that we eat each day. Sometimes I don’t have the time to sit and cook a full lunch for myself, which is why I love this recipe. To make it simpler, I make a huge batch […]

Black Bean Cakes

These black bean cakes are crispy on the outside and creamy on the inside. The secret is Panko bread crumbs, which are used both inside and outside. The batter is made of finely chopped onions, garlic, cumin, cayenne pepper and black beans blended in a Magic Bullet blender, which is then dipped in flour, egg and Panko bread crumbs and fried until golden and crispy on the outside. These black bean cakes go great with avocado, sour cream and cilantro […]
