I love my stick blender and make quite a few easy soups just by saute'ing veggies in olive oil, adding canned chicken broth. The stick blender makes is so easy to turn all the veggies into a thick or thin broth.
I've also used it to add veggie puree to muffins and breads and even beef gravy.

I couldn't live without my stick blender (immersion blender)- Makes smoothies and soups so much easier to prepare when you don't have to transfer from the blender and clean up is a breeze!
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!
