Fresh cilantro and lime juice is blended with some salt and egg yolks, which are then whisked over low heat until thick and creamy.

Tzatziki Sauce

I am always looking for new ways to spice up my lunch and snack! Sometimes the same old hummus and veggies can get boring, which is why I love this Tzatziki sauce. I usually make a loaded veggie sandwich for lunch, and this sauce pairs perfectly with it. It also makes a great veggie dip for later on in the day when I’m needing something to snack on. The best thing is that it’s so easy to make, especially using […]

Fennel Salad with Tahini, Garlic, Paprika Dressing

Fennel is… strange. The middle of it looks like celery, the top of it (the “fronds”) look like Muppet hair, and the bottom like… fennel. And the whole thing tastes like licorice. And then there are fennel seeds, which also sort of taste like licorice, or maybe like anise? And where do the seeds come from? Anyway, put aside your fennel confusion, because it turns out that chopped fennel makes a tasty, crunchy, vaguely licorice-y salad, especially when dressed in […]

Chicken Legs with Mustard and Balsamic

This delicious chicken dish is both savory and hearty without being too heavy. The mustard and balsamic vinegar sauce brings together the tartness of both the mustard and the vinegar while really cutting through the richness of the chicken. Best of all, the sauce all comes together in the Magic Bullet with minimal work and fuss. Chicken Legs with Mustard and Balsamic Ingredients 4 chicken legs, cut into thighs and drumsticks 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar 2 tbl dijon mustard 1 tbl honey […]

Lime Cilantro Ranch Marinade

I just LOVE this marinade. It’s so quick to pull together and is just packed with so much flavor! Something good definitely follows when your recipe ingredients contain limes, ranch, and cilantro. You can add it to chicken or fish and marinade it for a few hours, or just add it on right before you bake it. Lime Cilantro Ranch Marinade Recipe Ingredients ½ cup cilantro 1 lime, juiced 4 tb. olive oil 2 tsps. sugar Instructions Add all ingredients […]

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 […]

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 Pizza

This butternut squash pizza is one of my favorite vegetarian dishes, because it is very flavorful and filling. Rosemary butternut purée is spread onto a pizza crust and then topped with caramelized onions, crumbled goat cheese and arugula. To speed things up in the kitchen, you can use a store-bought pizza crust. This recipe works well as an appetizer or main dish.   Butternut Squash Pizza Recipe Ingredients 1 large pizza crust 1 butternut squash, halved 1/4 cup water 2 […]

Lightened-Up Hollandaise Sauce

  Did you guys know there is a healthy version of hollandaise sauce that tastes even better than the real stuff? No butter in this recipe! Instead, plain yogurt is used as the base. The lemon juice gives it a nice flavor. Careful not to heat the sauce too quickly in the end, because the eggs will cook too fast and you will end up with a chunky sauce! Patience is your best friend for this recipe. Add pepper or dill […]

Broccoli Slaw Salad with Peanut Butter Dressing

What is it about heat that has us craving salads? I live down the street from a salad place, and the first hot day of summer is always the same: lines down the block. I like salad as much as the next person but, sometimes, it’s nice to vary it up a little. Here’s an interesting salad using broccoli slaw, broccoli’s little brother and coleslaw’s cousin. (Does that also make coleslaw broccoli’s cousin?) Anyway, this recipe has multiple advantages: it’s a […]
