Blender Chocolate Mousse

Looking for a super easy and delicious dessert? You will not believe how easy this blender chocolate mousse is to make and how it tastes like it took way longer to prepare. The only tricky part is the cream needs to be warmed before using it to melt the chocolate, but you don’t want it to be too hot when adding it to the blender. Once it is ready to add in, everything blends together nicely in the Magic Bullet […]

Raspberries and Cream Popsicles

I love to make up different flavors of popsicles for my girls during the summer. They LOVE those brightly colored popsicles, and they could eat 10 if I let them. These are filling, subtly sweet, creamy, and have the pop of bright pinkish red raspberries that kids will love! Raspberry and Cream Popsicles Ingredients 1 cup plain greek yogurt 4 tsp. pure cane sugar 1 tsp. vanilla 1/2 – 3/4 cup raspberries Instructions In the Magic Bullet blender, add all […]

Herbed Parsnip Fries

Making homemade fries is always so much fun. Why not switch it up and make fries with another vegetable other than potatoes? One of my favorite non-potato fries recipe is made with parsnip. They become soft and tender in the oven after baking and crispy on the edges, and the flavor is very unique. I first prepare an herb, garlic and olive oil mixture in the Magic Bullet and then toss the thinly sliced parsnip with it in a mixing […]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Blender Donuts

Lemon Basil Fish Marinade

This lemon basil fish marinade recipe is a product of me having too much basil. Whenever I buy a basil plant, it seems to grow like crazy and I can never keep up with the amount of basil it produces. It turns out, basil is a super flavorful addition to marinades, like this fish marinade. I haven’t tried it with any other fish other than tilapia, so I don’t know how well it goes with other types of fish. Let […]

Cream Cheese, Carrot, and Cucumber Spread

My mom used to make this for me as a kid all the time, and then she would spread it onto a sandwich and cut in into tiny squares. It always reminded me of tea party food, and I loved it. It’s a great twist on a sandwich, and the recipe today puts a little more grown up twist on this tea party classic. Cream Cheese, Carrot, and Cucumber Spread Ingredients 1 block of cream cheese softened 1 large carrot, […]

Spiced Sweet Potato Bread

This nutty, spiced sweet potato bread pairs nicely with a warm cup of tea or coffee and whipped honey butter. It is best warm right from the oven after cooling about 15 minutes. You can place extra loaves in a freezer, wrapped in foil and placed into freezer bags and they will keep for a few months. When ready to consume, thaw overnight or bake in the oven for 15 minutes at 350 F. This recipe makes one large loaf, […]

Creamy Leek and Potato Pesto Soup

Soup is always a hit or miss with my kids. If there are vegetables or green stuff in their soup chances are it’s a no for them. No matter how many cheesy grilled cheese sandwiches I make as a side… they still aren’t having it. Then it hit me one night when they scarfed down their mashed potatoes that I’ve never tried making them potato soup. Liquid mashed potatoes! To be honest, I don’t love potato soup, I would much […]
