A Dutch Baby with Boozy Strawberries for the Royal Wedding

Happy Friday to you! I would like to say that today’s post is for Casual Friday, however, after waking up at 5 am to watch the Royal Wedding this morning, this day has been anything but casual!  Did you see some of those hats?  Geez…thankfully the bride has excellent taste.  What were those other women thinking?

Anyway, to celebrate the Royal Wedding (cheers to William and Kate!) and in preparation for Mother’s Day, I have a beautiful Dutch Baby with Boozy Strawberries and an incredible giveaway to tell you about today!  It’s been like Christmas around here lately.  I can’t wait to see what comes next! 😉

I was so excited when I was asked to review the Magimix by Robot-Coupe 4200XL 14-cup Food Processor (that’s quite the name!).  I have always relied on my food processor to do many things in the kitchen.  The more that I make our food from scratch, and use almost no processed foods, the more integral this particular appliance becomes in my kitchen.  I am now preserving more seasonal and local foods than I ever have before.

Making your own bread is so simple to do.

The food processor mixes everything together in one bowl.

The dough rises twice before you bake it.

I make pastry dough and bread dough with my food processor.  I grate cheeses, slice vegetables, and chop nuts.  I use it to puree foods  (canned tomatoes, soups and sauces).  I also use it to make batters (as I did with the Dutch Baby).  You can also whip cream with a special attachment that comes with the Magimix by Robot-Coupe 4200XL 14-cup Food Processor.  I find that my food processor is an incredible time saver.

Canned tomatoes are quickly pureed to use in sauces.

This is the perfect consistency for making a homemade pasta sauce.

I love that there are three different size bowls to use with this food processor and the size you choose will depend on the job you are doing.  There are a selection of blades and discs that are neatly housed in their own case.  I was so excited to see that since I tend to misplace those types of things.  Now I can keep them stored all in one place.

Grating hard cheeses is done in seconds.

There is nothing better than a good freshly grated Parmesan cheese to top your pasta!

This food processor is a real workhorse.  The only thing is doesn’t do is clean itself!  When they come out with that model, I definitely want one of those. 😉
