As usual my story begins on a Sunday, not just any typical Sunday, but a birthday Sunday. The sun was beaming down, casting gorgeous shadows beneath the old Tuart tree, the smell of a roast pork permeating the air, the crisp crack of yet another beer water being opened.

I’ve always been interested in baking. Back in the day when I had no idea what a stand mixer was, I remember spending my weekends baking at home, mixing everything by hand. I used to read the backs of cake mix boxes and would cut out and save those recipes I thought I can do. Some turned out okay. Most were not. But I really like baking and working with the oven so much, I even decided to study it formally.
Getting tired of the usual dips? It’s time you make this extraordinarily bright beetroot dip with an unforgettable sweet and spicy flavour. This vivid magenta beetroot dip will make your spread pop and add oomph to your crudités, bread, pretzels, or crackers.
The best part is this beetroot dip is a cinch to make with the new Vitamix Ascent blenders. Make it in half an hour and have enough dip to serve two dozen people. That’s how you get the party started!
Hearty meals can be quick. This chicken pilaf cooks in under an hour in one pot to boot! It’s the perfect dish to warm you up during cool autumn nights.
Incorporating herbs and spices from all over the world, this chicken pilaf is full of exciting flavours and wonderful textures, with rice, nuts, and fresh pomegranate. The Greek yogurt also adds a cool, tart, and creamy element to this one-pot wonder. You’ll be making this so often, you’ll probably add your name to the recipe.
