I don't know about y'all, but I can get bored eating the same things over and over again. What I've realized is that if I play around with the texture of something, I can eat it many different ways and never get bored.  Enter the Magic Bullet Blender.  While it can't make half the things it says it can make, I use it all the time for smoothies (my freezer is stocked with frozen fruits that I freeze when they're in-season or cheap) and soups.

Here's one of my favorite soup recipes -- I rarely add cream/butter (cheddar, not goat cheese)/cheese but tend to spice it up with some black pepper or even red pepper flakes.  You can do it with fresh broccoli or frozen broccoli.  It's also a great way to use the stems.  I've made so many other veggie soups the same way -- corn, pea, cauliflower.  I do it with a baked/microwaved sweet potato, some water, a little bit of butter and madras curry.  Eat your heart out.

  1. We registered for the Magic Bullet Blender for our wedding and I love it! I use it all the time to make shakes and we have even used it to make margaritas! Great blog - I'm now following it!

  2. I find it can't really do omelets like it advertises (nothing beats a good sharp knife), but it can do many other things very quickly -- such as shakes, smoothies, frozen drinks, a quick sorbet (frozen raspberries + oj = nom), making spice mixes, etc.

    Welcome to my blog!! I can't wait to see what books you read -- I already see some crossover (I love james patterson). I just picked up Tara Brach's Radical Acceptance (I've been listening to her dharma talks for years) and Pride, Prejudice and Zombies. I am still working my way through "On Food and Cooking" -- an encyclopedic volume about food, food science and why it all tastes so yummy!
