This Week's Foodie Freebie: Cuisinart Mini Prep Processor


Happy Tuesday and hope everyone had a great weekend. My apologies for another delayed announcement for this week's Foodie Freebie. I'm still feeling a bit icky and had a doctor's appointment yesterday. Thankfully things are looking better and I'm starting to get some energy back... which is a good thing. I've got a huge Thanksgiving party I'm hosting and catering so I'm back in the kitchen this week whether I like it or not.

With a big cooking task ahead of me, having time management skills is key. One way to make things easy is to have some tools that will help save me some time so I can focus on more complex cooking and baking tasks. A tool that I've found super helpful in the kitchen is a mini prep food processor. It allows me to prep ingredients for dishes all throughout the year and comes in even more handy during the holidays. So this week, a lucky reader will be receiving a Cuisinart Mini Prep Processor.

The Cuisinart® Mini-Prep® Processor is the perfect kitchen helper for your small food preparation tasks. This compact processor occupies minimum counter space yet offers major advantages: more power than other choppers, 2-speed operation, large 21-ounce capacity and several colors to choose from.
Product Features
Powerful chopper/grinder
21-ounce work bowl
2 speeds for precision processing
Patented reversible blade
Dishwasher-safe parts
Stainless steel blade with sharp and blunt edges
Spatula
Instruction/Recipe Book
Limited 18-month warranty

  108. I love my mamacita'a cornbread casserole! It is terrific!

    ReplyDelete
  109. There's no way for me to choose a favorite. One I really like that isn't so common is tarragon greenbeans. A little bit of tarragon, vinegar, bacon, and greenbeans. I'm not sure what else my mom adds to these, but they're addictive!

    ReplyDelete
  110. Cranberries! Love 'em any way I can get 'em...except out of a can.

    ReplyDelete
  111. It's a tie between mashed rutabaga (turnips) & my mom's stuffing -- it's just not Thanksgiving for me without both of those!

    (Sorry if this double- posts, there was a weird load error after I submitted it the first time.)

    ReplyDelete

  116. Oooh, ooooh, pick me (picture an eagerly raised hand)! I love the Silver Palate stuffing made with three kinds of bread, sausage, apples and pecans. We tease my husband, saying that's why he married me - for the Thanksgiving stuffing. All that chopping can't be done without electronic help.

    ReplyDelete
  117. My favorite Thanksgiving food would undoubtedly have to be stuffing smothered in gravy. And it doesn't matter if it is home made or from a box.

    thanks much

    ReplyDelete
  118. I LOVE my moms loaded mashed potatoes... nothing is better. I look forward to them all year long!

    ReplyDelete
  119. Definitely my mom's fresh cranberry sauce

    ReplyDelete
  120. Well, I already used my grandmother's pumpkin pie for the pie pan, so now I would have to say my fav. thanksgiving food would have to be a mixture of corn, turkey, mash potatoes, and my grandfathers top secret bread filling. Yes my family thinks its weird that I would prefer to eat thanksgiving meal out of bowl.

    ReplyDelete
  121. Hope you're feeling better!

    I have to say my fave Thanksgiving food is my grandma's rolls. Delicious the day of and perfect for leftover turkey sandwiches. I've never had any other rolls like them!

    ReplyDelete
  129. It's a toss-up between stuffing and boiled red cabbage.

    ReplyDelete
  130. Hi Joelen,
