You melt a marshmallow, place it next to Hershey’s milk chocolate, and squeeze it between 2 graham crackers. Done.
Smiles and a sugar high will follow.
Why does that require a machine ? With multiple working parts ?
Most of them, I’m sad to say, I learned about in my mother in law’s kitchen.
Why is slicing fruit such a challenge ?
For years, my family tried to convince me that I needed a Food Processor. I am an old-fashioned cook; give me a great chef’s knife and a cutting board and watch me work.
My husband has a basement full of high tech tools; commercial grade drill press, circular saw, scroll saws, wood lathe, etc. etc. etc.
He is a skilled carpenter, and these are necessary to him. He uses them every few years now.
I cook almost every day. But, it’s never been about the tools for me.
One Christmas season, I yielded. He gifted me the overpriced food processor.
It scared me. Something about washing that blade..I was sure I’d slice off a digit or two.
I quietly returned to my knife and board, my old fashioned blender, and for liquids, the magical immersion blender.
As for the Processor, capital “P”, I use it 2-3 times a year, just often enough to bring it out of storage and dust it off a bit.
I will sell it one day at a garage sale, or flea market.
It will be out there with someone’s S’mores Maker.
