Do you have a favorite kitchen item? Something you can’t live without? Something that you use all the time and if you part just a couple days without it, you’ll just die? Okay, maybe that was a bit dramatic but with this move to San Francisco, my new, glorious, fabulous Blendtec named Ladybird, has been packed away for the last couple of days and I’m having some major separation issues.

I’m not going to lie – purchasing a Blendtec Blender is quite an investment, but it’s worth every single penny. I’ve spent $30+ on cheap blenders and it’s broken down on me rather quickly with very limited functionality on cutting through ice. But with Ladybird, you’ll have absolutely no problem with that. Just go ahead and press that “Ice Crush” button. You’ll see what I’m talking about.

Ladybird can also make a mean salsa. But not just any kind of salsa – it’s 5-minute, chunky, restaurant-style salsa. Yes, it really takes just 5 minutes. There’s barely any dicing or prep work involved. So just let the Blendtec work it’s magic and relax. After that, you can go ahead and faceplant yourself in this salsa during the Patriots game!
