31 days of Food Processor Recipes: Day 7 • Grilled Muhammara Kabobs

To celebrate the return of the Cuisinart Trade In and Trade Up we are sharing recipes that feature the work horse of any kitchen: the Food Processor!

Hailing from Syrian, Muhammara, shares a lot in common with other middle eastern dips like hummus and tzatziki; it is tasty as is, on veggies, spread on a sandwich, and tossed with grilled meats. What really sets this one apart, other than the earthy roasted flavor and tangy sweetness, is the amazing color. The recipe below calls for a hand blender. We think you might want use a food processor and double or triple the Muhammara recipe. Tomorrow’s lunch will thank you.

31 days of Food Processor Recipes: Day 5 • Horseradish Salmon Burgers

To celebrate the return of the Cuisinart Trade In and Trade Up we are sharing recipes that feature the work horse of any kitchen: the Food Processor!

Dinner tonight could be this easy: throw a few things in the food processor, pulse to combine, form the resulting deliciousness into patties, grill, dress, eat. It’s that simple, really. If you REALLY wanted to send this one to the next level you might consider ditching the lettuce in favor of watercress. And though there is noting worse in this world than a over dressed burger we are feeling like a little diced roasted red pepper and sliced avocado wouldn’t hurt.

31 days of Food Processor Recipes: Day 4 • Pie Crust

To celebrate the return of the Cuisinart Trade In and Trade Up we are sharing recipes that feature the work horse of any kitchen: the Food Processor!

The food processor is a champ when it comes to many kitchen tasks. It slices, it dices, it grates. It does it all, really. But there are just some tasks, really important tasks, that really make the old processor shine. One of those: Pie Crust. The delicate dance between those two opposing ideals, a crust that is both flaky AND tender, is best achieved with the added speed of a food processor. Check out the recipe from the Food Network below, there is even a video tutorial showing you each step.

31 days of Food Processor Recipes: Day 3 • Black Pepper and Lemon Asiago Dip

To celebrate the return of the Cuisinart Trade In and Trade Up we are sharing recipes that feature the work horse of any kitchen: the Food Processor!

Who doesn’t love cheese dip? A bit more sophisticated than the neon stuff you get in jars at the store, this Asiago dip gets its punch from fresh cracked black pepper. The lemon juice and zest not only lend a wonderful balance to the dip they also add a sharp touch of color, too. Delicious right off a spoon but even better on a Sweet Potato chip.

Black Manhattan

Why not a cocktail recipe? This gorgeous drink features Averna, an Italian amaro, instead of the vermouth found in the

classic Manhattan. And, we’ve used Bourbon instead of Rye for a softer, sweeter taste. The glass is the Paris old-fashioned glass

  • 2 ozs. Bourbon, we used Four Roses Small Batch
  • 1 oz. Averna
  • 1 dash Angostura bitters
  • 1 dash Orange bitters, we used Regan’s

Stir all ingredients with ice in a mixing glass until well chilled. Serve in an old-fashioned glass over a big rock.

The Dream Bar

We just saw this bar at the High Point, North Carolina furniture market this past week. It’s pretty cool, with an incredible degree of design and manufacturing excellence. No surprise, really, considering it’s made by BDI, who makes fabulous home theater furniture. The wood is either light oak or walnut, the top is etched glass. It’s not even in production yet, but we have our order in. It’s going to sell for, probably, $2,199.
