The term "Add-Migration" is not recognized

asp.net-core entity-framework-core visual-studio-2015

Question

I'm using this MSDN Tutorial to run in VS2015 the command PM> Add-Migration MyFirstMigration -context BloggingContext that ran yesterday successfully but today it's giving the following error that is also pointed out by other users here. I even deleted the Migrations folder from solution explorer and the corresponding db from SQL Express 2014 on Win 8.1 but same error. Even if I run Add-Migration MyFirstMigration I get same error:

Add-Migration : The term 'Add-Migration' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program. 
Check the spelling of the name, or if a path was included, verify that the path is correct and try again.
At line:1 char:1
+ Add-Migration MyFirstMigration -context BloggingContext
+ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    + CategoryInfo          : ObjectNotFound: (Add-Migration:String) [], CommandNotFoundException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : CommandNotFoundException

Note: I'm using latest version of ASP.NET Core 1.0 and VS2015 - Update 3 released on June 27, 2016.

UPDATE

The following commands work fine from the project directory in the windows explorer when using command window:

> dotnet ef migrations add MyFirstMigration --context BloggingContext
> dotnet ef database update --context BloggingContext

UPDATE 2a

Following is the project.json file:
