Who loves chopping onions?! NOT ME!!! Who has a massive cry after chopping onions? Hands smelling of onions for days… ME!!! Well, I got the opportunity to test the new Philips Onion Chef and WOW!! I’m in love with it!! It uses a ChopDrop technology, which allows for perfectly sized onions and no mess too!! What I also love about this machine is that it’s very compact, doesn’t take up much space in the kitchen and can also chop a variety of ingredients, including meat, nuts, herbs, parmesan cheese and chocolate. Hehehe, now you can chop like a chef!! This Moroccan sweet potato and chickpea stew is one of my favourite week day dinners. I usually cook a big batch at the start of the week and voila! I have a few quick dinners covered! You can also add grilled chicken or fish to make it a more hearty and wholesome meal.

This is one of my favorite Zucchini Pasta Recipes… So quick and easy to make! You will need a machine called a Vegetable Spiralizer to make the pasta. I always look forward to using the machine because it’s so much fun! This lime tahini sauce is so simple and it makes the most delicious, perfect creamy sauce! For this recipe, I used Microsoft Windows 10 to show you my secrets to food blogging. See full video here –> Microsoft Windows 10 featuring Food Blogger Karen McLean
