Sharper Image Hand Blender - My New Favorite Appliance!
Members Were Sparked
While reading my Health magazine, they recommended a number of appliances that are great in order to help you maintain a healthy diet. One of the items they recommended was a hand blender. After researching, I found an inexpensive blender made by Sharper Image. It comes with a compact portable blender, a chopper, a heavy duty whisk and a 3 cup capacity mixing and measuring cup. I LOVE IT! I use it daily for smoothies and it works wonderfully. Easy to use and clean! And it doesn't leave any mess.

No extra calories in this quick idea using ingredients already in your meal. When you've finished cooking potatoes with your roast beef, pork tenderloin, chicken or turkey, remove all of the vegetables from the drippings. Return some potatoes to the drippings & whizz them up with a hand blender. The consistency becomes just like gravy & doesn't add unnecessary flour/cornstarch etc calories. Just plain good food that you were already going to eat!
If you don't have a hand blender, a regular counter top blender will do just fine.
I recently purchased a Cuisinart Smart Stick Hand Blender. This is an immersion blender that was only $40.00. I used to make soups and stews and have to blend half of the mixture in my Vita-Mix which I also love. But now, I can just use this handy blender right in the pan to blend. So much easier! It also came with an attachment that chops, veggies, fruits, and nuts very well. What a deal!
I have been wanting a bread machine for quite awhile but they are too expensive brand new. I went to a second hand store today and bought one for $13 and so far it is working!!! I was able to find the manual on the internet. So far I am tickled pink with my purchase.
