Chili Lime Pistachio Corn

Somehow, corn on the cob always reminds me of a hot summer day. Maybe because grilled corn on the cob is always at every summer BBQ. Did you know there are hundreds of ways to dress up corn on the cob? Once you start experimenting with different flavors, I promise you’ll never go back to boring, plain old corn on the cob again! One of my favorite dressings to add to corn on the cob is this chili lime pistachio […]

Ham and Cheese Potato Gratin

Potato gratin is a comfort dish everyone loves all year long. Potatoes, garlic, ham, and cheese…what is not to love about this ham and cheese potato gratin? You will be surprised how easy it is to prepare. Most of the time it is baking in the oven. The hardest part is waiting for it to be done! First, you need to cook the garlic and shallots until tender. Then, to make a creamy sauce, add cream, salt, pepper and thyme […]

Twice-Baked Sweet Potatoes

If you like sweet potatoes, you’re in for a treat, my friend! These lovely sweet potatoes are baked twice. Why? First to cook the filling, which is then blended together with milk, butter, and spices in the Magic Bullet and then stuffed back into the sweet potato shell and baked again. Oh, and don’t forget the sweet pecan topping, which bakes to perfection during the second baking session. I would almost consider these twice-baked sweet potatoes a dessert, but they also […]

I recently discovered that the Magic Bullet makes a great spice grinder, presenting me with endless possibilities to add a new depth of flavor to my cooking. But when it comes down to it, if I’m going to be grinding spices, I almost always want one of those spices to be Sichuan peppercorns. This is a recipe for a spicy, sesame vinaigrette with the distinctive floral mouth-tingle of the peppercorns – in other words, it really packs a flavor punch. […]

Corn Bread Muffins

Corn bread is one of those comforting foods that always gets people excited and it is a great addition to your lunch or dinner table. My favorite foods to pair with include chili, BBQ ribs, and fried chicken. You can whip a batch of these corn bread muffins up in no time with the Magic Bullet. No need for the extra work cutting a loaf, since each person can grab an individual muffin. A hint of honey sweetens these corn […]

Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Why do I love hummus? Because it’s a healthy snack that actually satisfies your hunger! Hummus is extremely versatile, from the way it is prepared (oh, the possibilities!), to what you eat it with. One of my favorite flavors is roasted red pepper hummus. The Magic Bullet makes this appetizer super easy to make at home, and it will last you for days! I like to serve hummus with vegetables to keep things healthy, but it also goes well with […]
