This dark chocolate cherry martini is like an indulgent milkshake and a cocktail all in one! You actually get a triple delight of chocolate from the chocolate liqueur, white crème de cacao, and shaved dark chocolate rim. Though your favorite feature will likely be the intriguing cherry accent from Bordeaux Maraschino Cherries. They are handpicked Dark Sweet Cherries grown in Oregon—and contain absolutely no artificial ingredients. Plus, they’re so easy to use, making them a great addition to any cocktail, including this delicious drink.
I’m pretty sure I eat more hummus than anyone I know. It’s what I grab whenever I need a quick fix or if I need to get in a bit more plant protein. And while I adore traditional hummus, I do like to mix things up every once in a while. I happened to be out of chickpeas, but I had dried red lentils on hand. So, of course, that meant red lentil hummus for me. Other than the chickpea to lentil swap, I make it with basically the same ingredients as my classic version. Though I do punch up the lemon to brighten the flavor.
For those times when you want to sip on a non-alcoholic drink or cool off with a refreshing beverage, this sparkling herbal cherry-ginger refresher is my new favorite pick! It provides the satisfaction of a craft cocktail—but without the alcohol, of course. The highlight: You’ll get a double dose of cherry goodness!
One food that I seem to have no problem finding these days is potatoes. How about you? As a potato lover, I’m so cool with this! But I wanted to add some excitement to my usual potato preparations of mashed potatoes, hash browns, and roasted potatoes. That’s how these potato salad skewers with herbal pesto topping were born.
It was a treat to (virtually) host an awesome dietetic intern (Rachel Murray) from University of Virginia this spring. For part of her internship experience, I requested that she develop a plant-based recipe based on something that inspires her. Here’s her delightful creation–and the story behind it. (HINT! I made a meal of it by simply pairing her Hasselback sweet potato alongside a cup of black bean soup. Sooo good!)
