Parenting Tips 365
A unique cookbook that will not only save you time when preparing meals at home, but bring fresh new ideas and excitement to cooking!
Montreal Gazette - Julian Armstrong
If you have been letting your [food] processor gather dust, this rundown on how to use one is handy.
CookingNook.com - Karen Ciancio
650 Best Food Processor Recipes is a cookbook that will have you falling in love with that appliance all over again.
Reader Views - Irene Watson
I'm a food processor foodie so when this book came in for review I grabbed it immediately. And, I'm happy to report I wasn't disappointed. The second recipe I tested was Orange Butter Cookies. Using the food processor made a simple recipe even more simple. The richness of the butter and the strong accent of orange pleased the palate. I will be making these again. Do I recommend 650 Best Food Processor Recipes? Yes, I sure do. With that many recipes you could have your processor going daily for two years. Perusing the remainder of the recipes I found that there are many I will be making in the very near future. The ingredients would be found in most pantries and certainly in local grocery stores. This is a winner.

I never realized the food processor could be used to create everything from appetizers to soups to desserts. These recipes have been developed with time saving strategies for today's busy cook. Many of the recipes have also been designed so that the bowl does not need to be cleaned along the way. (Who doesn't love have less dishes to clean? I know I am happy with anything that makes my job of cleaning easier.)
Sacramento Book Review - LuAnn Schindler
Does your food processor sit on the kitchen counter collecting dust? Or like many cooks, do you use the appliance only to slice and dice? George Geary, a cooking instructor, teams with food writer Judith Finlayson with this impressive array. Both authors assert that the food processor is the most underused appliance in the kitchen. With that in mind, the two whipped up a delicious offering of recipes that make use of the food processor in 650 Best Food Processor Recipes. This giant tome not only offers a tasty menu of recipes, it also breaks down the components of the food processor and explains how to use it effectively. Busy cooks learn how to save time by reducing prep time. One of the best sections is the comprehensive list of ingredients with directions for processing each of these foods. Color photos highlight several of the delightful gourmet recipes, ranging from appetizers to soups, entrees to desserts, condiments to cookies. The dessert section tempts my taste buds,
especially the lemon oatmeal bars. Initially, I chuckled at the section explaining the parts of the processor. I consider myself a well-rounded home cook, but after reading how to use the appliance properly, I realized I haven't used my food processor to its full potential.

If there is one kitchen appliance that I do not use often enough it is my food processor. I guess it is easier for me to chop, and dice with my knives instead. I mostly use my food processor for mincing or to make puree. Boy have I been missing out on a great way to prepare foods. Here is a fabulous cookbook for more inspiration. 650 Best Food Processor Recipes by George Geary and Judith Finlayson. George and Judith want you to bring those food processors out of your appliance graveyard. In 650 Best Food Processor Recipes they will show you how easy it is to put that processor to work. You can make sensational delicious and foolproof dishes. In Appetizers there is a scrumptious Pumpkin Cream Cheese Spread which I plan to make for my Thanksgiving get together. How about Roasted Garlic and Mushroom pate? I am drooling over Santa Fe Sweet Potato Soup made with dried New Mexico chiles, sweet potatoes and corn plus a few more choice ingredients. Yum! My guys love beef so Beef Fajitas with
Guacamole or the Southwestern Brisket would satisfy them. There is even a recipe for Homemade Ketchup. With so many hundreds of recipes, I have asked for a new Food Processor as a gift. Mine is so old and I can't find some of the blades, bummer!
Metro News - Emily Richards
