I just found the kitchen system of my dreams! Orange Blush drinks, broccoli cheddar soup, pot pie and MORE! Enter to win! #ad #NinjaSnapTapGo #NinjaPartner

I pretty much remember exactly where I was when I realized I could make my favorite foods all by myself.

It was a bit of a dream, to be honest. It was Thanksgiving and we were hosting. I was certainly an adult, but maybe not the adultiest adult in terms of cooking. All of my recent adventures are only 1-3 years in, so thank you for staying tuned with that one! I have a few favorite foods that always seemed out of reach to me. One was homemade whipped cream, which I must have mastered, because Scarlet asks me for it every Thanksgiving. Then, there’s mashed potatoes. I’m embarrassed about that one because I always complained when they weren’t around, without realizing I could make them easily at home with a food processor. Not to mention with a lot of butter. My newest awakening is Broccoli Cheddar Soup! On my own!

That’s just always been one of my out of reach recipes. I thought to make it, you had to be a chef or have taken some classes. Never have I imagined I’d make it right in my own home – in 45 minutes or less – with the delicious aromas reaching my home office. Yes. I made this. And that’s one of the many reasons to love my Ninja® Intelli-Sense™ Kitchen System with Auto-Spiralizer™. This is no ordinary product. It’s opened up a new world for me. A world of new culinary adventures.

Here is everything I love about it:

1 – 12 Smart Programs. The chef-designed automatic recipe creations deliver optimal results every time. There are precisely calibrated patterns of pulsing and pausing that combine with ideal speed, power, and torque for each attachment. You can create anything from fresh salsa and pizza dough to margaritas and decadent ice creams – all with a simple tap.

2 – Smart Vessel Recognition. Ninja’s Smart Vessel Recognition Technology automatically senses which vessel is attached to the base and the touchscreen changes to display a customized menu of Smart Programs on the touchscreen. In a snap! You can enable one Smart Base to become four high-performance appliances!

3 – The Ninja Intelli-Sense Kitchen System with Auto-Spiralizer has an Intuitive Touchscreen. This is a sleek, flat screen that responds to your touch and lets you select between vessel-specific Smart Programs and manual options. The durable, easy-to-clean screen stands up to everyday kitchen wear and tear.

4 – It has one smart base that transforms into four high-performance appliances: 72 oz. Total Crushing® Blender, 64 oz. Precision Processor™, 24 oz. Single-Serve Cup, and Auto-Spiralizer.

This food processor is a marvel and you can enter to win one here:

One thing I love the most about my Ninja Intelli-Sense Kitchen System with Auto-Spiralizer is that it goes above and beyond a blender. Having access to four different vessels with just one smart base unlocks whole new possibilities for me. I will be making a morning drink later this week so stay tuned to my Facebook page! For now, it’s all about my dream recipe.

The Perfect Holiday Gift and 5 Self Care Tips

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Amopé. The opinions and text are all mine.

Give the gift of perfectly smooth feet!

You know I wouldn’t steer you wrong! The Amopé Pedi Perfect Extra Coarse Electronic Foot File Pink is pretty much the best thing ever. It’s so good that I bought one for my Secret Santa and then went RIGHT back to Target to get myself one.

So you basically have two choices and if I were you, I’d take BOTH. You can get the Amopé Extra Coarse Electronic Foot File or the Amopé Pedi Perfect Wet and Dry Rechargeable Foot File as the perfect items for your loved ones. Boom. You solved the question of what to get them. AND, you can put it on your OWN wish list. And you’re going to want it. It’s an awesome gift for a significant other, friend, relative, etc. You can wrap it up or use it as a stocking stuffer. It’s simply perfect.

You can find it at Target in the foot care aisle, like I did. The Amopé Pedi Perfect Extra Coarse Electronic Foot File has a roller head with long lasting micro-abrasive particles and it comes with finely ground diamond crystals. The foot file buffs away hard skin – leaving you with visibly and touchably smooth feet. The Amopé Wet & Dry Rechargeable Foot File is waterproof, so you can tackle your dry feet and cracked heels in the shower or even better – in the bath!

The wet/dry foot file is also rechargeable so you don’t need to change out batteries – you simply place it on the rechargeable docking station and plug into the outlet with a recommended minimum of three hours. Then you can continually file for over 20 minutes, which is more than enough time to smooth out your hard skin and cracked heels. Right now use this digital coupon link in time for the holidays. You can use it between 12/4/17 – 12/25/17. Link HERE. This is what it entails:

Amopé Extra Course Electronic Foot File: Save $10
Amopé Wet & Dry Rechargable Foot File: Save $15

On the subject of having a perfect spa experience at home with the Amopé, here are 5 self-care tips for winter:

1 – It’s amazing how good it can feel to take a hot shower or a long bath. To have your hair washed, cut or colored. To feel connections with other people, to feel strength in yourself, and to feel pampered and cared for. Do it.

2 – Move your body. Why, oh why, did it take me so long to actually listen to this advice? You need to find your own movement – whether it’s through walking, running, yoga, classes, and more. Who with? What? Where? When? Why?

3 – Don’t stop being YOU. And if you’re part of a couple, don’t stop being a couple during this journey. I recommend regular date nights and even regular solo date nights. Whatever it takes, whether it’s one or both. I recommend both.

4 – Learn to manage that stress. Connect. Reach in. Reach out. It’s pretty rich advice coming from me – a known anxious person – but that’s all the more reason to listen to me. I know how it can go! Deep breathe. Exercise. Do acupuncture. Yell at the sky. Connect with friends. Seek support – whether personally or professionally. There is a wide world out there, full of defenses against the dark feelings. Time-outs, hydration, and fruits and vegetables help a LOT. Deep breaths.

5 – Give yourself extra time in the morning to have a deluxe and healthy breakfast.

What else would you add for self-care? I look forward to a good book in a good bath and then using my Amopé Pedi Perfect. I’m so happy I got one for my Secret Santa, as well as myself. I feel perfectly covered (and with smooth feet) for another awesome holiday season. I hope whatever you do for self care, you’ll share in the comments! Who would you get your Amopé Pedi Perfect for?
