I Love My Food Processor

Have you ever seen anything so wonderful?

If you've seen my previous posts, you may know that I grew up in a household without a food processor, let alone knives that had any kind of a sharp edge.

I resisted for years, fearful that Gran Fran's paranoia about these machines with killer blades would come true.

Well, I'm glad that I bit the bullet and got myself a new-fangled food processor. It is my new best friend (though that Microplane is coming in a close second).

I never imagined how quickly it could take a ingredients to pulp, soup or otherwise smush lots of stuff together instantly and consistently.

And, so, here are a few of my greatest hits: pesto, no-cook cranberry sauce and mushroom soup.
