RECAP: BlogHer Food 15 celebrated food blogs, Jamba Appliances broke the Internet

( - If you're like me, you love food. Healthy food. Vegan. Dairy. Meat. Whatever your ideal type of food is, there's nothing better than eating something that looks delicious!
That's why I love #BlogHerFood. It's a celebration of bloggers and journalists who love cooking, the art of food and being around others who feel the same.

This year, BlogHerFood was held in Chicago.

All things food was had but one of the things that sticks out is this delicious recipe for cauliflower.

  • 8 ounces elbow macaroni
  • 2 cups cauliflower, chopped into florets
  • 1 cup milk, divided
  • 1 1/2 cups sharp white cheddar cheese, shredded and divided
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
Preheat oven to 350ºF and spray a muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray. In a large pot, cook the noodles to al dente in boiling salted water according to package directions. Remove the pot from heat, drain, and return the noodles back to the pot. Set aside.
Steam the cauliflower florets either on the stove or in the microwave for 5 minutes, or until tender. Add the steamed cauliflower to a blender and pour in 1/2 cup milk and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Blend until the cauliflower becomes a smooth puree. 
Add 1 cup of the cauliflower puree, 1 cup of the cheese, egg, butter, remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, and pepper to the pot of noodles. Stir until completely combined and spoon into the greased muffin pan. Top with the remaining 1/2 cup of cheese and bake for 20-25 minutes until cheese is melted and bubbling. Allow to cool 5-10 minutes, then run a knife along the edges of each muffin tin to loosen the mac and cheese bites. 
Note: You can use a regular-size muffin pan or mini muffin pan for this recipe. It will make about 12 larger muffins or 48 mini muffins

Here's the recap:

Oh my! This changes everything.  If you're a fan of the experience but worth juicing company, "Jamba Juice," you're going to love this news. The company has launched an appliance line.

Here are the four products from the Jamba Juice's Appliance Line:

  • Jamba Professional Blender: A $450 machine that looks to be cut from the same cloth as Vitamix. It has a 2.4 horsepower motor and comes with a 64-ounce jar and an emulsion cup. It's due out this month.
  • Jamba Quiet Blend Blender: A unique cover sits over this $190 processor and supposedly locks in noise so you can make an early-morning smoothie without waking your family. It has a 1.6-horsepower motor and comes with a 32-ounce jar and a 20-ounce travel cup with a separate blade assembly. A separate version will sell for $170 without the travel cup. It's due out in July.
