What Would Betty Do Logo Whipped Coconut Cream

Non-Dairy Whipped Cream I try not to make a big deal about the fact that I’m lactose intolerant. Seriously, nobody wants to hear about your food sensitivities, especially it’s something that can be mitigated with a chewable tablet. But there are times when dairy is layered upon dairy and a Lactaid pill just isn’t enough. […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Hoagie Dip? Really?

Homemade Hoagie Dip I grew up in Philadelphia. I’ve eaten more than my share of high-fat, high-carb and high-calorie foods. But I had never, ever in my life stumbled across hoagie dip. But then, there I was at a birthday party at my father’s house in South Jersey (suburban Philadelphia) and was presented with this […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo The Perfect Summer Side

Fruit Salad Can we forget about the food pyramid for a moment? Can we ignore the fact that we’re supposed to be eating both fruitsĀ and vegetables? Because for a few short, glorious weeks in late May and early June in California, it’s all about fruit. Ever since last weekend when we picked 14 pounds of […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Betty Says: There’s No Wrong Way To Make a Smoothie

How Do I Make a Good Smoothie? Dear Betty, I like smoothies. A lot. I’ve thought about making my own at home, but I see all of these recipes that use things like whey protein powder and ingredients that I’ve never heard of. How do I make a good smoothie? – Baffled by the Blender […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo TBMA

Caprese Avocado Salad It’s late summer. The tomatoes are at that moment of red, ripe perfection. The basil plant has grown to the size of a tree. Sure, you could make the same old caprese salad with tomatoes, mozzarella (or burrata, yum!) and basil. This time, branch out. Add avocado. Hey, skip the mozzarella altogether […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Overnight Steel Cut Oats (In a Mason Jar!)

No-Cook Steel Cut Oats I have an evening routine: put the Tiny Kitchen Assistant to bed, then settle in with my iPad to sift through the day’s Google Reader topics and do a quick search of Pinterest. I know that people obsess over Pinterest. I’m just not one of them. I like to do a […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Try Something New: Tuna Salad

I detest seafood. I have always loathed seafood of any kind. My mother, of course, knew this, but it didn’t stop her from trying to pump me full of salmon at dinnertime and tuna salad on hot summer days. Because really, what could make fish any less appealing than packing it in water and mixing […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Try Something New: Green Smoothies

I know plenty of people who rave aboutĀ green smoothies and what they can do for your health, energy and wellbeing. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for consuming more real, raw foods, but let’s face it: I don’t want to drink anything that tastes like grass. The Tiny Kitchen Assistant — knowing that I hated […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Try Something New: Burrata

I’d never even heard of burrata until I read this post on Writes4Food. If you don’t already read this blog, I don’t know what you’re waiting for. Not only is Bryn a wonderful person and a great writer, she’s a farmer’s market enthusiast and a slow foodie in the way that I aspire to be […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Try Something New: Muesli

We’ve reached the season where I’m no longer interested in a hot oatmeal breakfast each morning, but I’m increasingly dissatisfied with the cold cereal choices that are out there. Even the healthiest ones have a lot of additives and stuff that I just don’t need. And so I decided to give my own muesli a […] Read More
