The Chickpea Bible

In the years that I’ve been writing for The Baby Bullet Blog, a few of my articles have focused on one food in dramatically different settings. I’ve addressed the usefulness of cauliflower and even the pleasure of pumpkins, but this week I’m doing something I’ve never done before. I’ve gone vegan. Consider it a bit of […]

Creamy Avocado and Lemon Pasta

If you love creamy, lemon pasta, but don’t want to consume all of the unhealthy cream, this avocado cream pasta dish is for you! Make it vegan by leaving out the yogurt. This is probably too strong for those who don’t like lemon, but I was in heaven with a large amount of black pepper on top. […]

You Can Do WHAT with Cauliflower?!

When friends of mine approach me to say, “Oh my god, I just did ___ with cauliflower and it tasted amazing!” I reply, “Welcome to the wonderful world of cauliflower.” By the way, if you hate cauliflower, stop reading here. This is for those of you who either love or like the taste of cauliflower […]

Chocolate Date Nut Brownies

These bites are an excellent fix for your chocolate craving, or for making your sweet toothed-children happy without giving in to their cookie and brownie whims! They pack a lot of flavor in each bite, with delectable hints of vanilla and chocolate. Your kids won’t know they contain fruit and will love how fudgy and gooey they are, and, […]

Easiest Ever Homemade Granola

Always a sucker for a bargain, I recently was compelled to purchase four bags of Bob’s Red Mill rolled oats because they were on sale two for $5. How could I resist? The major catch is that I’m the person in my home who actually likes oatmeal, so I probably over did it a tad […]

Quick and Easy Avocado Dressing

There’s nothing better than a versatile sauce you can use any time. As a salad dressing, a sauce, or all around flavor enhancer, this is a great recipe to give your dish that little extra effortless oomph it needs. The first night, we had it on a salad and added lemon, which made it taste […]

The Perfect Eggless Chocolate Chip Cookie

Eggless Chocolate Chip Cookies, perfect for those with an egg allergy or those who like chewy, yet crunchy cookies. These have that bakery feel, where the top gets a little cracked and they have a bite, but are still soft and chewy in the middle. My usual cookie, the one I make almost every other […]

Making Your Own Coconut Yogurt

While I tend to drink all kinds of milk, I have a natural tendency to find an alternative to cow’s milk when I can. I don’t have any aversion to cow’s milk, I just began to question why we drink so much of it and why pediatricians push it unto parents and children so much […]

Asian Baked Tofu and Eggplant

Ahh, a healthy, simple and filling protein-packed recipe for baked tofu that the whole family can enjoy. Is it too good to be true? This recipe says no! In fact, even my toddler ate this one up. This recipe comes from PBS Food; I made some minimal adjustments, doubling the sauce recipe, substituting half of […]

Making Your Own Tomato Sauce

This is the time of year when gardeners can happily find themselves up to their ears in tomatoes. As an Italian, I don’t ever have a problem making those bad boys disappear. However, sometimes we find ourselves needing a change from fresh caprese and bruschetta or desiring to save some of our tomatoes to enjoy […]
