Back to the kitchen

It’s been a while since I have posted about my own kitchen adventures! Let’s fix that 😀

Remember when I snagged an ice cream maker at Joey and Nicole’s party?

As soon as I got home from the party, I broke out the instructions and set to work:

Behold the magic globe.

I filled one end with ice and salt and filled the other with my own special blend for pumpkin pie ice cream:

The instructions told me to shake the ball for 20 minutes, but I got bored and had places to be, so I just threw it into the freezer …

… for four days:

While I let my solid block of pumpkin ice cream thaw a bit, I set to work on my other new toy, a gift from step-grandmama:

That’s right, a veggie spiralizer!

I really didn’t know what I was missing all those times I used a carrot peeler to shred things for hours on end.

In went a zucchini …

And out came zucchini spaghetti!

It’s a miracle!

While I was spiralizing zucchini, carrots, yellow squash, and broccoli stalks, I had tofu baking in the oven and slathered with this gift from mom:

I tossed all the “noodles” together in a bowl …

… and then added my crispy tofu, steamed broccoli, and tons of spices and herbs:

Voila, veggie spaghetti!

For dessert, I shoveled out some pumpkin ice cream, made it creamy with the immersion blender, and served it on top of a hot vitabrownie:

That was a fun meal. I’ve missed playing in the kitchen!

What’s your favorite kitchen gadget?
