While living rooms and dens still reign supreme for creating the best home entertainment and home theatre setups, a little creativity in kitchen goes a long way. If your family is anything like mine, the kitchen is the place to congregate. It's where we cook our meals but it's also our cocktail bar, where we have breakfast, feed our toddler and where snacks are served.

Here's a list of neat ideas to occupy the time.

A significant portion of our day to day lives is spent using household appliances of one kind or another, and many of these appliances are BIG! So what are those of us to do whose homes are microscopic (like many modern condos)? Or the lucky few with RVs or mobile homes to enjoy (certainly not me!)? For these folks, some of the most necessary home appliances are far too big and clunky to be convenient. Thankfully there are portable versions of these everyday appliances that can easily make our lives just a little less cluttered and a whole lot better. That's why in this Blog I examine three portable appliances that are great for those that live (or play) in smallish accommodations.

Blendtec Smoothies

 

Smoothies in the winter, say what? You heard correctly. Perhaps this refreshing drink isn’t seasonal, but it sure is good for you during the winter months. I understand that you’d prefer to cozy up with something warm like soup or coffee during the cold season.  But a healthy smoothie is packed with vitamins and antioxidants, which can give your immune system a boost. In addition, a delicious smoothie can help prevent the common cold during the long winter months.  Another great reason to drink smoothies is to help detox your system, after you’ve over-indulged on the gluttonous holiday foods. It’s a refreshing way to get back to your healthy eating patterns and fight the bulge.

I LOVE baby food! Ok, I probably shouldn't admit to that, but some of that stuff is just SO good! Of course, the kinds of baby food that I like (custard, tutti-frutti, and anything else that's sweet and yummy) are probably not the ones you want to start your baby on when first introducing the little one to solid foods. In fact, many parents today prefer to purée their own food for baby to ensure a healthy diet with none of those nasty preservatives and other extras that you might find in store bought products. For such people, choosing the right blender is paramount! If this is you, read on for a brief overview of four such devices to help you make the best possible choice of blenders for making your own homemade baby food.
