What makes cooking an even more enjoyable experience? – a new appliance that’s what! I’ve recently acquired the Cuisinart Elite Collection® 12-cup (3 L) Food Processor. Let me tell you, this is one machine built for the kings of the kitchen. This food processor is simply amazing and has the power take on any kitchen task.  It in essence is multiple food processors in one. It boasts two nested and sealed bowls and an adjustable slicing disc and reversible shredding disc.

My mother makes the most delicious salsa this side of Mexico. I truly believe that her special recipe (one which she has kept secret) is award winning – if there were a salsa competition. Although I cannot divulge her secret recipe, I do know that she prepares her famous salsa using a food processor. I plan on making my own salsa this season to get me through the wintertime – a little muy caliente!

I am often asked what I use a food processor for. With the upcoming holidays I plan on using it for making holiday cookies, breaks, festive cakes – you name it.  The truth is these machines are really great for making just about anything.

Here are my 3 favorite things I enjoy when using a food processor:

1) Making Nut Butter: with the power of the Cuisinart Elite Collection Food Processor, I am able to grind nuts until I eventually have homemade nut butter. This is delicious and beats anything bought in the store

2) Puréeing: I am able to make salsas, soups, sauces, pestos, dips, and spreads. The Cuisinart Elite Collection Food Processor makes this an easy task. I can even make homemade delicious mayonnaise. Goodbye Miracle Whip. Hello GTONGE1 love in jar.

3) Grinding Meat: This is something that not only is cheaper when done in the comfort of my own home but also makes me feel is a bit safer. Simply cut the meat into chunks, freeze until the edges are somewhat stiff, and them run them through the processor.

The Cuisinart Elite Collection Food Processor makes for a great Christmas gift for that chef in the family. They will love this machine and hopefully make you a few treats from their effortless labour!
