Pie Dough

Magic Bullet Makes Pie D’oh Too?!

I didn’t think it would, but I am again amazed by my magic bullet…

You need:

  • Tall Cup
  • Cross Blade
  • Mixing Bowl
  • Plastic Wrap

Ingredients:

  • 1 Stick Butter (Cold, and cut into small bits)
  • 1 ¼ C Flour
  • 1 TBL Sugar
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • ¼ C Ice Water
  • ¼ tsp White Wine Vinegar (Apple Cider is good too)

Directions:

  1. Dissolve the salt in the water. Add the vinegar and set in fridge until ready
  2. Put flour, sugar and butter in the Tall cup. Blend and shake to break up butter and “cut into” flour. Stop before all the butter is mixed in
  3. Put flour/butter mixture in a bowl.
  4. Add Ice Water mixture to the tall cup.
  5. Add Flour/butter back to the tall cup.
  6. Pulse, Blend, and Shake until a very rough dough forms.
  7. Place in bowl and help any stray dry bits to merge with the mass.
  8. Shape into a patty shape; wrap with plastic, and refrigerate for up to 5 days.

Roll this d’oh into a beautiful pie shell… save some extra for decoration.

This Recipe yields one 9” pie shell. A single layer.

After you have rolled the d’oh… you can freeze it in its pie tin wrapped in plastic for a month!


Thank You Magic Bullet! I was shocked to find out how well you handled pie d’oh!!
Till Next time you darling little Bakers and
Baker-ettes!    I’m sending my warmest regards!

In the words of the great BARRY White,

 

“I’ve heard people say that

too much of anything is not good for you

baby, but I don’t know about that”

 

Lauren here, your Kitchen Magician, and Barry hit the nail on the head with that one because too much of this berry sauce is NEVER enough.

 

Back from Orlando, back to ‘normalcy’, and yesterday was Sunday which means DeMaio family dinner. Debbie whipped up cheesecake for the clan, and the request for raspberry sauce began. First my brother, then my Dad – the only people who have the right and the stones to request additions after she brings out a masterpiece of a cake because they are immediate family.

 

I limp to the kitchen, [totally pulled a muscle jogging in a suit this past week. Normal.] check out the pantry and fridge situation we are working with, and yet again, my David Hasselhoff / Baywatch stylin’ lifesaver, the Magic Bullet Blender steps in and KILLS it. See below, then get down on the dance flo’:

 

MAGIC BULLET BLENDER PARTS

  • [1] Magic Bullet Blender Tall Cup
  • [1] Magic Bullet Blender Cross Blade

 

INGREDIENTS

  • [2 Cups] frozen raspberries
  • [3/4 Cup] water
  • [1/4 Cup] sugar
  • [2 T] orange juice
  • [2 T] cornstarch

 

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Place frozen raspberries into a microwave safe bowl. Change power setting to 2 or 3 and microwave for 2 minutes. Stir, and continue to microwave for 2 minute intervals until thawed.
  • Into a sauce pan on low-medium heat, add raspberries, orange juice and sugar.
  • Into a small bowl add cornstarch and water. Make sure the water is COLD. Whisk together until combined and smooth.
  • Add cornstarch mixture to the sauce pan and bring all ingredients to a boil.
    *Cornstarch + cold water = thickening agent. Works for sauces, gravy etc. Mix it, heat it, golden. I use it with stir fry sauces sometimes – works like a charm.
  • Turn back to a simmer and let cook for about 5 more minutes, stirring constantly while sauce thickens.
  • CAREFULLY add contents in batches to the tall cup, blend with cross blade for 10 seconds, add to bowl. Repeat until pan is empty.
    *You can easily cut this recipe in half, I just made a relatively large amount because we had a good sized crowd over.
  • Pour over your cheesecake and ENJOY.
    *Whenever topping desserts with sauces like this, I like to put them into one of those ketchup squirt bottles first and then pour it on. Gives it a cool look. If you don’t have one and want the same presentation, tablespoon that stuff on with a light drizzle and zig zag your way to excellence.

 

This is also BANGIN on chocolate cake, chocolate soufflé, crepes, anything. It’s a GOOD, easy raspberry sauce and if you have frozen berries on hand, can be spur the moment no problem. I have done it without orange juice before as well, but it gives it a little subliminal kick of extra acidity that works well. So hey if it’s dessert time and YA GOT IT, FLAUNT IT.

 

Alright my little sugar coated candies, I’ve got to get some life stuff done. Laundry. Pedicure. De-puff my eyes. Yes, that’s why all you see is teeth and my father’s racing team hat. Again, don’t ask. It’s his ‘new’ thing. JJP Racing. True story.

 

Checkin in with ya a few more times this week but in the mean time and as always, Happiest Blending, from my big heart, to all of yours.

Happy Holidays my little Potluck Peanuts!

Lauren D., your Magic Bullet Blender Kitchen Magician and shoot you better tuck and ROLL because I’m throwin some SERIOUS HAYMAKERs your way today.. If you failed to see the corresponding photographs, I also decided to bring in my ‘muscle’, Preston, for back up.

(Just to clarify: I am the one without the hood.)

Now you know I would never let you walk into a holiday get together with a black eye, and for those of you who I know on a personal level- I avoid confrontation as if it were an Ikea on a weekend. In celebration of the holidays, also known as strap on the ole apron, it is cookie season, today we are rollin in the HAY the right WAY with:

NO COOK

BUTTERSCOTCH

PEANUT BUTTER

HAYSTAX

Make them ahead, throw em in a baggie, arrange them on a cookie platter at game time and you are done.

Try it – and check out my LUVs / variations at the end-

MAGIC BULLET BLENDER PARTS:

[1] Tall Cup

[1] Cross Blade

[1] Steamer Top

ADDITIONAL TOOLS:

Parchment or wax paper

Medium or large bowl for mixing

INGREDIENTS:

[11 oz.] butterscotch chips

[3 T] creamy peanut butter

[6 oz.] chow mein noodles, classic style

*Tip: are found in your normal grocery store! Sometimes in the aisle broken up by different areas of the world – if you can’t track them down, find an employee who looks relatively approachable and ask them :)!

INSTRUCTIONS:

– Add butterscotch chips and peanut butter to tall cup

– Put on Magic Bullet Blender Steamer Top and microwave on 50% for 1 minute

– Remove, shake

– Return cup to the microwave and again with the Steamer Top, micro that baby on 50% for 1 minute

– Remove the Steamer Top and attack the Magic Bullet Blender Cross Blade

– Blend for 10 seconds or until smooth and combined

– Add chow mein noodles to a bowl, add contents of Tall Cup to the same bowl

*Tip: If you have a small spatula around, this works great for getting all that melted holiday love out of the Tall Cup, as well as the next step! If not, a Tablespoon works well too!

– Gently toss and coat the chow mein noodles in your butterscotch peanut butter

– Onto parchment or wax paper, carefully drop heaping tablespoons of the mixture until all has been used

*Tip: I usually line a baking sheet with the paper. If you don’t have one clean or close by, no biggie – any surface is fine.

– Allow the haystax to sit until cooled and solid

– Put those little bundles of love into the fridge and they can be taken out when it’s time to indulge

LAUREN LUVs:

*CA$HEW money records: I’m making two additional batches this week to bring with me to one of my holiday get togethers and remixin these weezy-babies just a bit:

– Batch 1: ADD [1/3 Cup] halved cashews when you add the butterscotch and pb in to the noodles. All the other steps remain the same.

– Batch 2: ADD [1/3 Cup] peanuts instead of cashews. Same steps as above.

*This Ain’t No Sidewalk CHOC: Yes, you can add chocolate. I typically do [4 oz.] semi-sweet chocolate chips, [7 oz.] butterscotch chips, microwaved as above, PB amount and everything else remains the same.

*COCO me loco: Want to get tropical with me and Preston? ADD some coconut flakes – I usually do about a [1/3 Cup] but adjust accordingly!

So let me reiterate this for you:

Holiday season

Crazy timing

Travel maybe?

NO COOK

MAKE AHEAD

MINIMAL INGREDIENTS

SIMPLE

QUICK

All. With what else? But your MAGIC BULLET BLENDER.

Give the gift that keeps on giving this year!  No, it’s not the box set of The Wire [although that show is life changing and I strongly recommend watching it]. Nope, not ‘Pajama Jeans’. Membership to the stamp of the month club? .. yea, no.

It’s THE no brainer: THE MAGIC BULLET BLENDER… come on, even Preston wants one.

Alrighty, this kid needs some shut eye. I’ll be checking in with you all soon, and if you need me I’ll be flyin around the tri-state area, Boston maybe, and just patiently waiting until the Winter Classic gets here. NYR. 24/7. What? Yup!

In the meantime, Wishing all of you Happiest Blending, and a very Happy, Healthy & Safe Holiday Season to YOU and Your loved ones.

All my love-

xo Lauren


Hi Everybody!

It’s me Chef Scott from St. Petersburg Florida

It’s coming up on that Special time of year again… when eggnog and peppermint cloud our senses and better judgement. When the wafting smell of gingerbread baking and the wistfull tunes of some ancient Christmas Carol fill your ear buds…

 

I like making and baking gifts and treats for friends. Some of my recipes, while loved and requested fill me with dread. Too many ingredients, so long stirring a pot, too much time waiting for d’oh to rise… oy.

This candy isn’t like that at all. You do need to make it a day ahead of time, but time in the kitchen should be about 10 minutes. Maybe less. 10 minutes is a small price compared to the hours of accolades from all who try your tasty treats.

Here we go…

 

TOOLS:

  • Tall Cup
  • Cross Blade
  • a bowl and a spatula
  • a foil or plastic wrap lined baking sheet

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 Bag of Ghiradelli 60% Cocoa Choclate Chips
  • 15 (or more) Red and White Starlight Peppermint Candies
STEPS:
  1. Unwrap all those infernal candies. Place them in the Tall cup with the cross blade and wizz until you have dust.
  2. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler (a largeish bowl set over a pot of simmering water) or you could also microwave it. Microwave for 30 seconds. Stir, Microwave at 15 second bursts and stir between each time.
  3. Add Most of the peppermint dust to the chocolate and stir together. Reserve some of the dust for decoration.
  4. Pour Chocolate mixture onto lined sheet pan and place in the freezer for 1 hour or less.
  5. Break into pieces and give to a friend, or snarf it down your own self.

I put out a sort of lavish spread for some friends the other day with pie, and cookies ,and pretzles, and some of this Peppermint Bark. Bark was GONE first before pie even got cut.

Huge Success! No Muss no Fuss…

I can hear the jingle bells! Rock!!

Till next time,

Sending my warmest candy coated regards…

Scott

Have a Halloween hangover? Cure it with one last treat before you put away those decorations!

Spooky Chef Scott here with another Gruesome installment for your Holiday Season.

 

Let me say right up front that I made a Grave mistake in my video. With regards to how much milk I used in the pudding formula… I should have said 1 (one) and ¾ Cups of milk per batch. But in my defense I was working in a haunted house, so I may not have been in my right mind. You may be saying, “and that’s different from any other day, how?”

 

Just enjoy the video, and try not to judge.

 

Here’s what you need…

 

Tools:

  • Tall Cup (2 if you have them)
  • Party Mug
  • Cross Blade
  • pudding serving cups (I only use 4 in the video, but I had enough pudding for a 5th and maybe even a 6th)
  • A stir stick (I used the handle of a spoon)

 

Ingredients:

  • 3 ½ Cups of milk divided (1 ¾ Cups each)
  • 1 Package (small) INSTANT Chocolate Pudding mix
  • 1 Package (small) INSTANT Pistachio Pudding mix
  • Oreo Cookies (with the tops unscrewed and reserved. Feel free to eat the filling and the bottoms)
  • Bugles (if you can find chocolate bugles, use them. If you can’t, then dip your own in melted chocolate and chill)
  • Gummy Worms

 

  1. Put 1 ¾ Cups Cold milk in the tall cup. Add Chocolate Pudding and blend for 10 seconds.
  2. Immediately pour the chocolate pudding in the party mug for safe keeping.
  3. If you only have 1 Tall cup then act fast! Rinse the tall cup to proceed. If you are among the fortunate few that have 2 Tall cups… then just move on.
  4. Repeat Step #1 with the Pistachio Pudding mix
  5. Pour both flavors of pudding into each pudding serving cup
  6. Swirl with the handle of a spoon or similar.
  7. Add 2 Gummi Worms for legs
  8. Add an Oreo top cookie and a bugle for a hat.
  9. Chill and Serve!

 

The spookiest kids pudding cup since the Wonderful World of Oz!

Don’t Get Skeered!!!

Full Throttle Thursday – I’m FALLiiiing in Love

Lauren here, your Magic Bullet Blender Kitchen Magician – and single white female – comin’ atcha from the great state of Connecticut, yet again.

I may be that girl who ‘falls in love’ once a week – but this time – it’s for real.

And it’s head over heels – with, of course, a food –  SWEET CINNAMON BUTTER.

This little dollop of joy is beyond easy [granted, many things are when using the Magic Bullet Blender] and gives your fall dinners a different twist. Toss this on the table during your Thanksgiving Dinner instead of your standard, boring, out of the wrapper butter and impress ya guests.

Got some new in-laws coming over? Do it.

Just you and your significant other? Do it.

A random Tuesday night where you are craving carbs and just want to watch A&E re-runs of the overly sensored cable version of The Sopranos alone? Buy some rolls and Do it.

MAGIC BULLET BLENDER PARTS:

  • Magic Bullet Blender Tall Cup
  • Magic Bullet Blender Cross Blade

INGREDIENTS:

  • [1] stick of butter, softened
  • [1 Tablespoon] light brown sugar
  • [1 Tablespoon] honey
  • [1] pinch of salt
  • [1/2 Teaspoon] cinnamon

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. –          Add all ingredients to tall cup
  2. –          Blend for 5 seconds
  3. –          Get all Eddie Money on that cup and give ‘er a good shakin
  4. –          Blend additional 5 seconds
  5. –          Refrigerate and save, or slam some of that stuff on bread – yum

As you can see by the above – you got both the SALTY and the SWEET covered. Make this delicious goodness FAR in advance – refrigerate in a cute container – whip it out a game time – and YOU ARE GOLDEN – like that crazy group of girls. So go get all ‘Betty White’ on that butter and try it out.

Now before I go – I have a question for you – if anyone can think of SOMETHING for me to do during my videos during the, say, 10 seconds that I am blending, INSTEAD of awkwardly looking at the camera like Paula Abdul during an American Idol panel – I will:

A. give you my undying thanks.

B. give you a SICK shout out during the next vid.

C. use your suggestion.

D. something else, I don’t know, maybe a gift card to a coffee joint or something.

Alrighty kiddos –  got a bunch to do. Hitting up Jersey to see one of my best little pumpkin’s hockey games – and some NYC action.

Get after it.

Until Tuesday – Happiest Blending, from my big, bulky heart in Connecticut – to all of Yours.

Hi Everybody!

It’s me Chef Scott from… not so sunny St. Petersburg Florida.

 

“We’re Sorry, the 3:00 Performance Of Scooters Across America has been Canceled due to Inclement Weather.”

 

Oy. Grounded. Luckily, I got a can of pumpkin a couple weeks ago thinking, I should do a pie in my bullet.

 

First I looked for a recipe on the back of the can. I didn’t have 2 of the ingredients. Then I consulted my many cookbooks and baking bibles… I didn’t have MOST of the ingredients.

 

In instances like these, where I have a hankerin’, but limited resources… I picture Gene Wilder in Young Frankenstein flipping knobs and spinning dials… Lightning… Crazy hair… rubber gloves! Y’know, gotta build it yourself… Mad Scientist Style!

 

So in the interest of the season, I now present,

 

The Pie of Frankenstein… (don’t be skeered!)

 

You need:

Tools and Equipment:

  • Tall Cup
  • Cross Blade
  • Mixing Bowl
  • Spatula
  • Tesla Electric Coil ( just for effect, really. You could substitute spooky candles )

 

Ingredients: (the meat… wait, I thought you said it was pumpkin!?)

  • ¾ Cup Heavy Cream (substitute ½ & ½ )
  • 1 TBS  Orange Juice
  • ¾ Cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 Can   Pumpkin Puree (make sure to get 100% pumpkin. Not “Pie Filling”. You want it pure.)
  • 2          Eggs

 

SHOCKING SPICE MIX: (mix these together first before you start the recipe!)

  • 1 ¼ tsp Cinnamon
  • ½ tsp   Ginger
  • ¼ tsp   Cloves
  • ½ tsp   Salt
  • ½ tsp   All Spice

 

 

you also need:

  • 1          9” Pie shell (either a pie d’oh you’ve made yourself… or frozen store bought. It’s okay.)

 

Do This… bwah ha ha ha ha ….!

okay, Now:

 

  1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.
  2. You will need to make this batter in 2 halves. Put half of each ingredient in the tall cup in the order listed. Blend until smooth. Shake like a cocktail shaker at least once.
  3. Pour mixture into the mixing bowl. You will add the other half to it.
  4. Repeat Step #2. and add to previous mixture. Stir to combine.
  5. Pour Mixture gently and carefully into your waiting pie shell.
  6. Bake at 425 for 15 minutes
  7. Reduce Oven Temp to 350, and continue baking for 30-40 minutes. Until center of pie is set. Don’t overbake, check pie at 30 mins and decide…

 

Now do this…muaw Muaw MUAW HAHAHAHAHA!!! and roll your eyes back…

Okay… if you made your own pie d’oh, then you should cut some decorative leaves or some other shape with a cookie cutter or knife. On a sheet pan lined with parchment, bake the decorations NEXT TO the pie. Remove Deco at the 15 minute mark, before you reduce the heat. (actually, check your deco at 10 mins)

 

The Pie will look inflated and puffed up in the oven, but will flatten as it cools. Cool on a rack until it reaches room temperature, then chillDunh DUNH dunh….> until ready to serve.

 

Place your decorations on top of the pie… make sure there aren’t enough to go around to help incite screaming and gnashing of teeth. You can serve it with a dollop of Whipped Cream made in your Bullet!

 

Yell this… “It’s a MONSTER!” and click the dining room lights off and on a few times just prior to service… your family will probably appreciate it, mine didn’t.

 

Happy Baking you Ghouls!

 

This recipe steps nicely through the rest of the season with you… just don’t serve it with all that eye rolling and crazy hair… it’s inappropriate.

 

Until next time…

I’m sending my warmest regards,

Chef Scott

PS: as this was pieced together from about 5 different recipes, much like the Frankenstein Monster, I hope that you can see just how easy it is to combine and substitute just to fit your needs … make it your own! I did!

 

 

 


Make this Halloween a REAL TREAT..

BOO!

Did I scare you?

…. Probably not.

Lauren here, your Magic Bullet Blender Kitchen Magician –

FACT – in 2004, I showed up in downtown Salem, MA dressed up as Lebron James.

FACT – in 2008, I dressed up as ‘Snakes on a Plane’ – reference photo – and go ahead and judge.

[ps – how amazing did my roommates look..? I am laughing alone right now.]

FACT – I am notorious for always having the worst costume. And damn proud of it. This year I am thinking of The Heartbreak Kid, Shawn Michaels.
