Red Hot Cook has this to say about 650 Best Food Processor Recipes:
Dust off your food processor.
My husband and I were given a very fancy food processor for our wedding several years ago. I used it once or twice and then tucked it away in the storage room as it didn't seem to be worth all the trouble to just make coleslaw and juice.
Was I ever wrong! A friend recommended I buy a copy of 650 Best Food Processor Recipes and give my processor another shot. I haven't put either the book or my processor away since. And, I'm now honestly wondering how I ever lived without it!
The recipes in this book have inspired me to make everything from party appetizers, to main courses for my family, to desserts for the school bake-sale. I can't believe I didn't think of using it for all these things before! If you're like me and have a busy work day, followed by a busy night of running around with the family, you will truly appreciate this time-saving tips in this book.
I've learned to use my food processor in a much more time efficient manner after reading (yes, it's all in the book!) about safe usage, understanding basic parts, and how to process a huge list of ingredients properly. This book - which is now my go-to reference book - lists tips and proper techniques on food processor usage (ideal for individuals like me who are a little technologically challenged).
I highly recommend this title - and I also highly recommend you give your own unused food processor another chance - I guarantee you'll be pleasantly surprised if you follow the advice and recipes in this book! Who knew cooking could be so easy?
5.0 out of 5 stars
Irene Watson states in her review:
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.
