I bought myself a food processor recently. I was taking advantage of a 20% coupon at Linens and Things. I have not been a big fan of food processors and had been using an old food processor occasionally. To give you an idea how little I used a food processor, the old food processor was given to my wife before we were married and that was a long time ago. Well, the old food processor died recently when I tried to do something with cheese. Yea, that was a bad idea! Out with the old and in with the new.

For the last week I have been experimenting with the food processor. The video included with the food processor encouraged me. Despite their instructions I found that there is a fine line between chopped vegetables and purée. Almost all of the time I want the chopped look but some of my mistakes(i.e. purée) have had more flavor than the chopped versions. 🙂

Salsas and sauces may benefit from using the food processor with a gentle hand. This week I will experiment with pie dough. It may work better in the smaller container than in the mixer. I doubt I will try the food processor with bread dough. I am very happy with my results with my mixer.
