Can you believe it’s been two years? I started this blog on September 30, 2010 soon after moving to Israel. I wanted a fun and creative outlet to complement my professional writer website, and that’s exactly what I’ve gotten. 318 posts later I’ve grown as a writer, photographer, and recipe developer, and been introduced to an incredible community of passionate and talented bloggers. If you follow me you know that I rarely host giveaways (in fact, there’s only been one, this time last year), but I wanted to do something to thank you for reading my blog, sharing your tips, and bringing me joy. So I’ve got something exciting for you.
A few months ago I was excited to win this gorgeous Magimix by Robot-Coupe 12-cup food processor from one of my favorite blogs, Baker Street. And now I’m excited to pay it forward by giving one away – plus an amazing juicer attachment! You know I wouldn’t talk about something like this unless I really loved it, and with this food processor it was love at first use. It’s the real, professional deal. Handcrafted in Burgundy, France, just as it always has been, the Magimix by Robot-Coupe food processor features a commercial-grade motor that is both incredibly powerful and unbelievably quiet. The razor sharp blades make any work of even the most tedious kitchen tasks, and the three nesting bowls make it like a three-in-one machine. Plus it looks great.
Besides all the impressive food processor features, it was the attachments that I really fell in love with. A food processor with attachments? In particular, it was the Juice Extractor & Smoothie Attachment that really got my attention. I love that you can have all the power of a major juicer without a whole extra machine – it’s a huge space and money saver! I’m obsessed with fresh juices, and the juice attachment allowed me to make my own at home – much cheaper and more convenient than going to the local juice bar!
I made fresh apple juice, peach-banana smoothies, and lots and lots of carrot juice. It made for an easy and nutritious breakfast or pick-me-up throughout the day. My favorite combo? Carrot, apple, ginger and spinach – talk about a vitamin powerhouse! The attachment is easy to use and dishwasher safe (I admit that without a dishwasher it can be a pain to clean, but nothing too terrible). I’m obsessed. I know you will be too!
- 4 carrots, trimmed
- 1 green apple, sliced
- ½ knob ginger
- 2 cups packed spinach (leaves and stems)
