Southwest Sweet Potato Salad with Cilantro Dressing

Roasted sweet potatoes, black beans and corn tossed with a cilantro lime dressing makes an easy, delicious vegetarian dinner. Lately, we have been trying to eat less meat and in its place entered sweet potatoes. They are very filling and have many health benefits. Combined with beans and corn, it packs mighty doses of fiber and protein, too! The cilantro lime dressing is really easy to make in the Magic Bullet – just toss all ingredients in a cup and blend […]

Twice-Baked Sweet Potatoes

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 […]

Sweet Potato Dream by Lizzie

Hey everyone!   I’m back from a long weekend away. I’m SURE you must have missed me 😉 You know what I missed? My Magic Bullet!   This is the time of year of hearty roasted vegetables and savory delights! Autumn is by far my favorite season. It’s such a relief to have this crisp air rolling into the city, and everyone looks so cute in sweaters and scarves.   Anywho, obviously, with this colder weather rolling in, I’m going […]
