There was a bit of a disaster in the Stanley kitchen this past week. Part of the preparation of the potato leek soup I made on Wedenesday required some puree-ing (not sure if that's really even a word!). With no stick blender to be had, I thought it wise to pour the boiling soup into the regular blender. Also, seeking to conserve time, I was just sure I could puree all the soup at once. I could barely get the lid on, but it fit so away I went. Big. Huge. Mistake. Soup was EVERYWHERE!!!
Enter my cooking tip of the week: If the recipe calls for the use of a stick blender, there must be a good reason--use it!
