First the cauliflower gets rolled in a little breading, then it’s off to the oven to be baked to perfection. Once they’ve finished baking they get covered in the BEST sriracha buffalo sauce. Honestly, you will not even realize you are eating cauliflower. All you will realize is that it’s so dang good. I think these bites may be one of my dad’s favorites. He and I both loved them, especially when dipped in that blue cheese sauce (YUM, and it’s made healthier with Greek yogurt!). There really are no words.

People call beets a lot of things ― earthy, or even dirty, gets thrown around a lot ― but beautiful is not often one of them. And it should be. Beets, with their ruby red or golden yellow hue, are stunners. When put to work in the right recipes, they will easily impress.
That’s not all beets are good for, either. These roots are a nutritional powerhouse. They’re high in betaine, which helps fight inflammation. They’re rich in nitrates, which could help lower blood pressure. And they’re a great source of folates, which is vital in disease risk reduction. Continue reading “Smoky Black Bean Beet Burgers”

Juicing a watermelon is work. There’s a lot of tough rind to cut through, and if you’ve got a good watermelon on your hands, a lot of drippy, juicy mess that happens as you’re cutting.
Turns out, there is a better, easier, less messy way, and Alton Brown has shared it with us.
This is what you’re going to need: the watermelon (of course), a three-inch biscuit cutter, a knife and an immersion blender. The biscuit cutter is a great tool that’ll help you cut a hole in the top of the watermelon. That hole is needed to fit in the blade of the immersion blender. And the immersion blender is responsible for juicing up the watermelon in a matter of seconds. It’s a beautiful sight. Continue reading “How to Juice a Watermelon”

Strawberries, raspberries, blueberries — oh my! Berry season is in full swing. From muffins to pancakes to frozen yogurt, these delicious berry recipes make the most of the season’s juiciest bounty.
This summery recipe comes from Gina Homolka’s bestselling cookbook, Skinnytaste Fast & Slow (Clarkson Potter, 2016).
