Time is on your side with a crock pot. As a mom on the run, having a crockpot (and countless great crockpot recipes) is a must. I use it often, mixing it up and creating all kinds of dinners that are ready when we are, whether it’s after a big soccer match, after a long day’s work or after having to run around all day.
I’m always surprised of the many uses of a hand blender. Smoothies, pesto, hummus, soup, dressing, dessert… The list goes on and on. With this useful tool, you can choose what ingredients go in to these various recipes that when bought in the store can be full of preservatives and additives And the best part? Easy cleanup.
Made locally and discovered at my Farmers Market, La Dolce Vita Gourmet nut butters in all their variations are a constant in my household, used for everything from cooking to sandwiches to fueling for training. My personal favorite is the cashew butter Sicilian Coffee. To sweeten the deal, all proceeds for La Dolce Vita Gourmet go to help provide medical care, surgery and homes for severally neglected and abused animals.
