Kitchen appliances: faves and wastes!
Good evening! Is the weekend treating you well? Mine is pretty swell, all I have done today is lounged around the house, eaten, napped, watched P.S. I love you (Loved it) and then did something I don’t normally do i.e. baking. More on that later.
Lets talk kitchen appliances.
I think kitchen appliances are a cook’s best friend, I know I am no wise women making a breakthrough here but I really do believe they make life so much easier. Here is a list of my kitchen faves and appliances I wish I had not wasted my money on .
The very first kitchen appliance I ever bought in the USA, I think just three day on arriving was this Duraband blender and food processor. It has been with me all these years and is still functioning. The blades are made of steel, I mean literally and figuratively. And for $20, I think this was
steel steal of a deal. As I said it still functions but a month back, the food processor bowl cracked. I am still keeping it till I decide on buying a new one!
A big boo to the mini food processor I bought a few weeks back. I just have to admit that there is a price you pay for being cheap and I am! The blades are blunt and it processes…well nothing. Good enough to be thrown into the trash this very minute! But I’ll wait till I get a new processor!
Another great find, Braun immersion blender and chopper. I swear I love this kitchen appliance. It is good for smoothies, soups, purees (needed in Indian curries), chopping nuts and seeds, making chutneys, salsas. A highly recommended appliance!
Coffee and spice grinder. I think the next time I buy I am going for cuisinart. I have tried Black and decker and Hamilton beach. I’ll give both of them a
My kitchen wish list:
Cookie dough balls I getting quite the attention in the blog world and for once I am not late to catch up! I made these dough balls this evening based on Mama Pea’s recipe and all I can say is OMG..these are freaking amazing. I have a confession to make, I really meant to follow the recipe exactly but I don’t know why I added a flax egg.
Breakfast and dinner:
1 cooked egg with a lot of hot sauce and toast
Potatoes in a yogurt gravy with quinoa and greens with hummus. (No grocery shopping done)
Yoga Meltdown with Jillian <—This was an amazing workout..Loved it! I never really thought that this would happen, but I am sore after all the yoga I have been doing for the past week!
