Hi! Welcome to Test Kitchen Tuesday.
I’m Angela, and I am not a professional chef. Not by a long shot. In fact, I used to do whatever it took to avoid cooking. My husband (also known as 2ChiliBreadBowl) used to think a good meal was prepared out of a Lean Cuisine bag and sizzled up in a skillet in about 10 minutes. But, thankfully, people change!
In early 2010, I started really looking at what we were eating, and it was scary. Have you ever read the ingredients list on your favorite convenience foods? Yowza. Once I made the connection that “you are what you eat,” I started changing things around our house.
Change is not easy, and change shouldn’t be overnight, so slowly took back control of our nutrition. A surprise houseguest for dinner one Tuesday when I was trying something new gave me the idea of having a defined trial food day, and, Test Kitchen Tuesday was born.
As it turns out, I have lots ot say with regards to healthy eating and living, so I often discuss healthy living topics, provide the occasional product review, and generally share what’s on my mind. Oh, and I am big into blending – as proven by my Ninja Blender Recipe page. I accidentally became a bit of a Ninja Blender expert, and recently wrote an ebook called The Ninja Blender Handbook, which is a compilation of my recipes, key learnings, tips, tricks, and troubleshooting for Ninja Blenders.
The blog has evolved with our lives, and right now we are currently renovating a mid-century modern home in the Seattle suburbs and do not have a kitchen (really! no kitchen). So, the trial meals have been on the backburner for a while, but I look forward to the day in the fairly near future when I have more than just my trusty Ninja Blender at my side to create our daily nourishment.
Thanks for dropping by, and, I hope you stay awhile!
