Review: Home Sausage Making: How-To Techniques for Making and Enjoying 100 Sausages at Home (Paperback)

Home Sausage MakingHave you ever wanted to try your hand at making your own sausage?

Whether it’s because you have a hunter in the family who gets fresh meat that you want to make into sausage, or you want to really know what goes in your foods, so you prefer making your own, you need a good book to get the basics on how to do it and how to do it right. Home Sausage Making : How-To Techniques for Making and Enjoying 100 Sausages at Home is that book.

This book not only teaches you how to make great sausages, but it is also chock full of recipes that will help you start to fill your freezer. And it doesn’t just stick to the usual meats that go into sausage as it includes everything from chicken and beef to shellfish and venison. Believe it or not, there even are options to learn how to make sausages that are vegetarian with all the taste but none of the meat.

For the beginner, this book is a must have that will give you everything you need to start sausaging any and all kinds of meat.

What We Like

  • This is a great beginner book that will give you a good grasp of this art.
  • If you have never made sausages before, this is a great step-by-step book to get you through the process painlessly.
  • Once you know what you’re doing, this book gives you a lot of ideas for how to make a number of different sausages.

What We Don’t Like

  • There could have been more sausage making recipes (and fewer recipes for using sausage) included.
  • This has the basics, but if you already know the basics you may not get a lot out of this book.
  • Many of the recipes are lacking in flavor and you will probably want to add more spices.

Review: KitchenAid FT Food Tray Attachment for Stand Mixers

KitchenAid FT Food Tray Attachment for Stand MixersIf you have a KitchenAid mixer and you have always wished that you had something that would allow you to add more items to mix without having to keep grabbing handful after handful, they have heard your requests.

The KitchenAid FT Food Tray Attachment for Stand Mixers can be attached to all KitchenAid stand mixers and will allow you to fill the tray with the ingredients to be mixed and then sit back and let the machine do all the work.

No longer do you have to hold your hand over the mixer to avoid splatter while trying to reach across the counter and grab the next bunch of ingredients to be combined. No need to waste time reloading anymore!

If you also have a grinder attachment for your KitchenAid mixer, this will allow a smooth constant flow of items to be mixed to pour into the bowl. This is especially helpful if you tend to cook larger quantities.

When it comes time for clean up, no problem. The whole tray is dishwasher safe, as long as you put it on the top rack.

What We Like:

  • Less Spillage than trying to mix most things in just a mixing bowl.
  • If you are grinding up ingredients to be in a soup, this will help reduce the splatter as new ingredients go in.
  • Makes the kitchen much easier to clean after a day of mixing.
  • You are able to put all the items in at once and let them feed through the tray instead of running back and forth grabbing handfuls of ingredients.
  • This makes big mixing jobs much easier to complete.

What We Don’t Like

  • You can’t pour liquid ingredients in with this attachment as it is not waterproof and liquids will leak through onto the counter.

Oster 6627 100 Watt Milkshake Drink Mixer

Oster Milk Shake MachineOne way to ensure the kids get some of their daily calcium requirement is to serve up cold refreshing thick chocolate and strawberry milkshakes or a smooth vanilla malt.

The  Oster 6627 100 Watt Milkshake Drink Mixer has a great retro design that will blend in nicely with most kitchen decor.

The milk shake maker has a heavy duty,100 watt motor and a two speed switch control that easily combine the ingredients in seconds so that you can make smoothies as well as your milk shakes. Do remember that this is a milk shake machine, not a blender so it won’t blend fruit into your shake.

The mixer makes your drinks right inside the 28-oz. stainless steel cup – which keeps your drink icy cold.

The die cast chrome construction  and design gives the mixer stability when mixing, and there is a handy safety device that prevents the milk shake maker from operating when the stainless cup isn’t  in place.
