Use what you've got!

I've had some questions about what kind of blender I use. I wish I was using one of those sweet VitaMix blenders. SOMEDAY! For a long time I used an inexpensive blender that my sister gave to me. I wore it out after 6 months of using it several times a day. It was a Cuisinart. So for Christmas I got one of these blenders and I LOVE IT!Plus it came with a food processor which I've always wanted but couldn't ever afford.  This has really made things easier for all the raw food recipes I make.  The great thing is it was at Costco for less than $60.  I've been impressed with it.  Obviously if I could have bought the Vitamix they were selling I would have but I took what I could get and have been happy as can be. Thanks honey!

The point is YOU DON'T NEED AN EXPENSIVE BLENDER.  I don't even have one. For those of you who have a Vitamix, I hope you're using the crap out of them.  Use them for all us poor people working with 1/4 of the power you've got:)  Happy Blending!


  1. Hey Mel,
    I just used your bread recipe (slightly altered for lack of ingredients) but it turned out pretty well for my first time. Thanks for sharing all the fun recipes.

  2. Oh I'm so glad. Keep on practicing.
