Lauren here, your Kitchen Magician – and sure, we are ALL guilty of slacking off sometimes.

Sweatpants to the grocery store…… a frozen pizza for dinner….?

Flats to the bar….. steam-in-a-bag veggies on a plate… and nothing else…?

A 7 year old tank top and awful looking hair for a Magic Bullet Blender Blog picture….. take out….

POINT BEING – it happens…. 😉

Well my friends, when it comes to THANKSGIVING – we are talking A GAME – FLOOR LENGTH – GRAMMY stylin.

Thanksgiving, yes, historical, lots of meaning, and what else – LOTS OF FOOD.

This is your day to shine – so when you are making that salad, or antipasto …….. [yes, aside from the regular turkey, etc, etc, etc, we ALSO have antipasto AND lasagna on Thanksgiving. my last name is deMaio. don’t judge.] ………. don’t go bottled. Go IMPRESS WITH A ZEST ITALIAN.

This is what, the fourth bangin dressing I’ve given you now?? Don’t disappoint your Kitchen Magician. Make a girl proud. And make extra. Toss it in the fridge. Use it during the week. Whenever!

MAGIC BULLET BLENDER PARTS

– Magic Bullet Blender Tall Cup

– Magic Bullet Blender Cross Blade

INGREDIENTS

  • [1 Cup] extra virgin olive oil
  • [1/2 Cup] red wine vinegar
  • [2 tsp] salt
  • [1/2 tsp] ground black pepper
  • [1 tsp] onion powder
  • [1 tsp] garlic powder
  • [1 tsp] dried basil
  • [1 tsp] sugar
  • [1/2 tsp] crushed red pepper flakes
  • [1/2 tsp] dry mustard
  • [1/4 tsp] celery flakes

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. – Add all spices and blend for five seconds
  2. – Add olive oil and vinegar
  3. – Blend for 10 seconds
  4. – Pour it and enjoy
  5. – Cover. Save. Use Later.

This recipe is SOOO forgiving. Punch up the amounts and flavors that you like!

Few tips / additional items:

– Great with tomato, basil, fresh mozzarella.

– If making the above, I like to spear half of a cherry tomato, small piece of a fresh basil leaf, and half of a small ball of fresh mozzarella with a toothpick. Stand them up on a platter with a flat side down, drizzle with dressing and pop into fridge. Take out 10 minutes before serving and voila. Easy for people to grab and snack, EASY to make, SUPER impressive looking.

– If making the dressing ahead, make sure to take out of the fridge maybe an hour or so before using.

– Toss some of this on some crusty Italian bread with prosciutto, fresh mozz, roasted red peppers – panini press that baby.

**If you don’t have a panini press, NO problem. Place sandwich in a frying pan [lightly olive oil outside of bread], and on another burner heat up

another frying pan. Place the bottom of the other one onto the bread, press firmly, don’t burn yourself – flip and repeat.

Alright my little bruschetta babies – got to scoot.

Big week coming up….. keep an eye out for me….

In the meantime, polish up those Magic Bullet Blenders and gear up.

As always, Happiest Blending – from my big, huge, nomadic, mashed potato loving heart, to ALL of Yours.

Have a safe and fabulous weekend – and .. um.. New York Rangers.. can we please nab numero ocho… in a ROW… so sick. Like the Magic Bullet Blender. Legit. Psyched.

Terrific Tuesday – Well hot dang that is a big country.

What is the deal my little Magic Bullet Blender bundles of Love??

Lauren here – your Kitchen Magician – Pop Quiz: What does the speedy, former right winger of the New York Rangers, Pavel Bure and the picture below have in common?

Hint:      They are not both left handed

Hint:      I do not want to date both of them

Hint:      They weren’t both drafted in the 6th round of the 1989 NHL draft

Ok – give up?

They are both RUSSIAN. And today I am sharing with you a nice little recipe for CREAMY RUSSIAN DRESSING.

The kicker is, the dressing isn’t even REALLY Russian – but that’s a story for another time, or you can just google it if you need a mental break later…  AFTER you youtube ‘Ain’t Talkin Bout Love’ by Van Halen…. Talk about a killer morning driving song..

Alright – centering myself – down to business: Russian dressing is good. I do like it. I typically actually like a little bit of it on sandwiches MORE than I do on salads. One thing I do NOT like is chunks of relish in my dressing. I know that may sound odd, but I can’t really deal with it – which is why the Magic Bullet Blender absolutely KILLS this dressing – you STILL get the flavor of the relish.

Do yourself a favor and give this baby a shot – it’s got some damn good flavor – and by now you know your Kitchen Magician doesn’t lie to you. There is no point.

CREAMY RUSSIAN DRESSING

Magic Bullet Blender Parts:

[1] Magic Bullet Blender Tall Cup

[1] Magic Bullet Blender Cross Blade

Ingredients:

[1 Cup] mayonnaise

[1/2 Cup] ketchup

[1/2] small onion, diced

[1/4 Cup] milk

[1/4 Cup] green relish

–          Blend for 5 seconds

–          Shake what ya mama gave ya

–          You are done, like Michael Lohan’s social life

I do Operations Management for a living.

If we can’t do what you want, we gotta have back up, gotta have options.

So what do I have for you below? Optionsssss 😉

Sandwich Stylin – Pumpernickel bread, turkey, sauerkraut, swiss cheese, some of your Russian Lovin on both sides of the bread – Grill. Love.

Ensalada – Lettuce, steak of your choice grilled and thinly sliced, dress it up Pavel Bure style – Delish.

Pasta Salad? – You could soo do that too. Diced green and red pepper, bacon bits [thank you, JR Butler – talk about a domestic gentleman] I dig.

Alrighty, Babushkas – I’m out.

Have a wonderful day, and watch out for huge mammals running out of the woods. You change up the clocks by one hour and …. Good god you don’t even want to know what I was passing on the side of the highway this morning.

Until next time, Happiest Blending, from my big Heart – to all of Yours.

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.

Full Throttle Thursdays … appropriate for today

 

Put the pedal to the metal and KEEP on going …

 

Guess what today is…..!

 

It’s ALMOST Friday J !

 

And I am ALMOST without brain cells.

 

Lauren here – your Magic Bullet Blender Kitchen Magician – and this is my first week back at work after 2.5 off. LOVING the new job – with that one tiny set back of 4.5 hours in the car PER DAY –  until I find a new place.

 

Now, the reason I am giving you all of this useless information is because I am mentally shot. If having to use your brain for the first time in however long doesn’t do it, then spending all of that time in stop and go traffic  will undoubtedly ruin you.

 

Regardless, anyone who falls under ANY of the following categories: former roommate, co-worker, ex-boyfriend, family member, had a class with me in college, works in one of the Allston toll booths on the MA pike, cashier at Shaws in Dorchester, met me in passing between the hours of 6A and 5P, etc, etc – is WELL, WELL aware that I am a CAFFEINE. FIEND. THE MORE. THE BETTER.

 

Hey it’s my one vice.

One in the morning.

One mid morning.

Lunch time.

Late afternoon.

 

Below is my NEWLY added, ‘super early morning until I get TO a coffee joint’ beverage of choice – using what else, but that strapped on my belt, no nonsense, life saving tool of the trade – the Magic Bullet Blender.

 

ICED COFFEE WITH A KICK

 

Magic Bullet Blender Parts:

  • [1] Magic Bullet Blender Party Mug
  • [1] Magic Bullet Blender Cross Blade

 

Ingredients:

  • [1 Cup] coffee
  • [1/4 Cup] skim milk (Use whatever you like here – whole milk, heavy cream – whatever floats your boat)
  • [1] shot of espresso
  • [3] ice cubes

*Note: I get my coffee and espresso shot from my ‘coffee pod’ machine

 

Instructions:

  1. Add all ingredients to tall cup
  2. Blend for ten seconds
  3. Wake up and get going

 

Again – use whatever type of milk YOU like. Add the sweetener of YOUR choice. And for those of you who aren’t psychotic about this get after it goodness like me – you have made your OWN iced coffee, at home, and saved yourself a couple of bucks!

 

Well kiddos – I’m scooting to a meeting. Keep an eye out for me next Tuesday and please, keep it goin.

 

In the meantime, Happiest Blending my Little Beans – from my big heart in CT – to all of Yours.

 

Enjoy the weekend!

Terrifying Tuesdays –

 

What is the deal my little boo boo bears?!

 

Lauren here, your Magic Bullet Blender Kitchen Magician and resident creep show – comin’ atcha straight from southern CT [yes, on Sunday I turned 28, partially relocated, and started a new job – big thangs].

 

My apologies on the photograph. I promise I was not trying to look like a serial killer – although it works out because we are in the boo-tiful season of Halloween – so just go with it.

 

Speaking of this glorious time of year, better known in my life as ‘cold weather = I tend to cook more fattening things and pack on a few’ – yea well this year I have tried to make a bit of a lifestyle change.

Thus far we have been doing pretty well. For example: Post making the hot fudge and peanut butter sauce sundaes last Thursday, I promptly put them down the garbage disposal to prevent myself from eating them. www.Willpower.com/ILovePeanutButterButStillWantToFitInMyClothes

 

Anywho, in an effort to continue this trend, I have been demolishing salads. Many a salad.

I have given you my go-to Greek Dressing recipe –

and I have mentioned in passing a few times my go-to MAKE YA SAY BOO BALSAMIC VINAIGRETTE DRESSING –

and now YOU my friends, are gettin’ it – similar to how that broad got it in the shower at the end of Alfred Hitchcock’s and still personally scarring flick, ‘Psycho’…. [nightmares and a baseball bat in my bathroom for 6 months after my first viewing. THANK YOU, Luscious Louis DeMaio for thinking it was okay to show a 10 year old that movie]

 

Saddle up with those Magic Bullet Blenders and let’s get down to it baby –

 

 

MAGIC BULLET BLENDER PARTS:

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

 

INGREDIENTS:

  • [1 Cup] extra virgin olive oil
  • [1/2 Cup] balsamic vinaigrette
  • [1] clove garlic, halved
  • [2] fresh basil leaves, torn *Note: You may substitute these for [1/2 teaspoon] dried basil
  • [1 teaspoon] yellow mustard
  • [1/2 teaspoon] dried oregano
  • [1/4 teaspoon] sea salt
  • [1/4 teaspoon] fresh ground black pepper
  • *Optional: [2 Tablespoons] pre-bulleted pecorino romano cheese

 

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Add all ingredients to your Bullet Blender Tall Cup.
  2. Blend with Bullet Blender Cross Blade for 10 seconds.
  3. Magic has happened.

 

The mustard is your key – this is what I brought up during the ‘Will You Marinate Me?’ video as well – it emulsifies and gives that dressing some thickness. Keep the extra in your fridge and use it as a weeknight go to.

YOU are making it so you know it isn’t loaded with tons of preservatives and added sodium so you won’t be floating to work like Pikachu in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade the next morning.

 

For my salad I used the following:

[1 – 6 ounce] salmon fillet [Place skin side down in baking dish uncovered, piece of sliced lemon on top, 425 degrees for about 20 – 25 minutes until easily flakes with fork]

[2 1/2 Cups] lettuce

[1] roma tomato, roughly chopped

[1/4 Cup] kalamata olives, chopped

[2] small balls of fresh mozzarella, quartered

[1/3 Cup] MAKE YA SAY BOO BALSAMIC VINAIGRETTE DRESSING

 

– Toss it all together and you are good to go kid.

 

Alrighty my little pumpkin pies – keep an eye out for me this coming Thursday on that Magic Bullet Blender Blog… or in the bushes across the street from your house..? Who knows the heck knows.

 

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

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.

[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.
