I had never really used a food processor before, mainly just because I was unaware of all of the magic it could do. I guess I had never really seen one in action, or had never spoken to anyone about them before.
Once we had a child, everything changed. There was no more going out for happy hour and saying forget cooking, let’s just eat here. It was time to commit to cooking at home on most evenings. Plus, since we would be saving money, I was able to get a few new gadgets for my kitchen.
The one thing that made me really excited to get going was definitely my Cuisinart food processor. I could not believe all of the things I could do with it. I also couldn’t believe that this secret had been kept from me for all this time. It makes preparing food so much easier. Not that I’m opposed to doing minor food prep, as long as it doesn’t take forever.
Not to mention, having kids can be expensive, so I started prepping larger quantities of food so that we’d have leftovers for busy weeknights and to take to work for lunch so we weren’t wasting so much money. Plus, I was making healthier alternatives to everything. The more I used it, the more I wanted to keep using it as much as I could. It was so cool!
After some quick research, I realized I could find parts for it at KitchenWorksUSA where they make actual Cuisinart DLC-7 parts. I was able to purchase different types of blades, a dough blade and bigger bowls to make larger quantities.
Now I’m making bigger batches of everything for family get-togethers for holidays and other family events, like cookies, homemade bread, and dips. It makes it so easy to keep meals healthy for the whole family.
I used to hate having to prepare food ahead of time. It sounded so daunting, so I’d continuously put it off until it was literally too late to bother, and of course we’d order in or go out. Now I have no excuses. I can chop, slice, blend, mix and grate just about anything, so the options are really limitless. My time is cut down so much with food preparation, all it takes is some planning just like anything else, and I’m able to spend my energy on things that matter to me, like spending time with my family. Nothing can replace that.
I’m already making a list of parts to get for my Cuisinart food processor to try different ideas. It’s also comforting to know that I can purchase replacement parts when things start to break, as they do with this kind of use.
I have recommended this many times over to other parents who are looking for an easier way to feed their family’s in a healthier way. So far a handful of my friends have started doing the same thing, and no one has been disappointed. The Cuisinart food processor really has changed our lives for the better.
