Two Kitchen Gadgets Worth Having

         Okay everyone, so I’ve put down a couple of recipes for drinks now, and you’ve read in them that I recommend the Magic bullet.

         Thus my first kitchen gadget worth having a magic bullet. You can find all official details here:

          But bottom lines, it’s amazing. you can put popcorn in it, and have corn meal in less than a minute.

         It makes awesome frozen drinks, grinds romano cheese, sausage, I even made applesauce in it last week.  There’s a lot of knock-off brands of the MB but, they really aren’t the same, and they break easily.

It’s a little pricey, but they can be found at retail stores much cheaper.

         My second item is a Tassimo machine. It’s a Starbucks at home basically. It’s amazing. We started using them at my church and you can’t make pretty much anything with them–Lattes, cappuccinos, macchiatos, spiced chai tea lattes, hot chocolate, regular coffee–the list is endless. You can find out more here:

         I’m not a fanatic with cluttering up the kitchen, but these (in my opinion) are must-haves!


I’ll have a new recipe posted soon

          Okay, so today I made a decent lunch that’s easy, nutritional, and delicious.

         The good old-fashioned peanut-butter and jelly sandwich.

          I had 12-grain bread with crunchy peanut-butter and red raspberry jam

          I also had a fresh apple, and cooked carrots sweetened with honey, and cornbread stuffing (from a box).

          I haven’t done a new recipe for today, but had to share that lunch to give some of you ideas if you’re looking for something healthy and good. The meal is around 990 calories in all.

Welcome to my blog!

       Thank you for checking out my blog! Hopefully, you find it  interesting and worthwhile. In this blog I’ll constantly be posting new drinks I’ve been mixing and creating, along with different desserts and recipes that I’ve added a personal touch on. Also  taking some of those simple recipes and “sprucing” them up with the littlest changes.

      Before that though, let me tell you a little about myself.

      I grew up in a small town. I have a niece born in 2007. She’s the cutest thing, and most times, inspires my cooking.

      I’m engaged to a wonderful women and getting married in June 2011.

      I’m currently attending IUP (Indiana University of Pennsylvania) for English and Journalism and an emphasis in writing.

      Although I didn’t choose the awesome culinary arts, cooking, baking and mixing has always been a favorite hobby!

      To conclude: keep up with my blog and try the material I post. Let me know what you think too!

Any ideas for me to try? Let me know!
