Blendtec Twister Jar GIVEAWAY/Unconventional Kitchen on t.v.

I just had a blast going on Studio 5. They asked me to try out a yogurt making kit and show how to make home made yogurt. You can check it out here: Studio 5 segment.

A funny side note. I almost missed my whole segment. I was on my way to Studio 5 and a semi got stuck in the snow, blocking the entire road!!! I couldn’t go around him and I couldn’t back up. I called Jane, the producer, and met her in the parking lot. We ran up to the studio and I was on within 15 minutes!


As you might know, I just did a pre-launch for my Real Foods Made Easy program!!! We have had an amazing response to it. I am so honored to be working with so many amazing women. FYI if you have wanted to join the program, registration for the program will be closing January 31st. We will start up a waiting list for when we open the next group.

    I love Unconventional Kitchen

  2. Diane Odiorne says:

    My whole family is addicted to the gluten free chocolate chip & coconut cookies. We make them w/ coconut oil and cut the total sugar by more than 50%, and they all still say they’re sweet enough. Guess the coconut oil adds enough sweetness. Thanks for a great recipe!

  3. Sarah Reinwand says:

    I would LOVE a twister jar! My favorite Unconventional Kitchen recipe is the Lime Kissed Blackberry Muffins! I have made them many times. We have made all sorts of variations: lemon blueberry, lime raspberry, lime mixed berry. It is an awesome recipe. And since I’m here, I will also say that anytime I’m in a cooking slump my husband says, “Why don’t you try another one of Desi’s recipes?” We all know you have great ideas and everything you suggest is delicious!

  82. Melinda B says:

    I love your start here section on your site. I was feeling so overwhelmed and didn’t want to waste money by throwing all of my food out. Just use up what I already have and don’t buy it again was great advice. Also, I was so overwhelmed on where to start that this was very helpful. I think change is easier to accept when it is gradual rather than making a fast change and regretting it. I think your recipes are great!! Thanks

  83. Jani says:

    My favorite recipe is the black beans that taste like Cafe Rio.

  84. Sherie says:

  89. Shaunna says:

    My favorite recipe from your site is the Peanut Butter Bliss Balls or Peanut Butter No Bake Cookies. I used this recipe as my fueling food for my MTB training for the Leadville 100 last summer. These little bars saved me and gave me the energy and boost I needed during the many hours of training and in completing my race under the allotted time of 12 hours. I thank you personally. I choose this treat over all the bars you can buy at the store.

  100. Victoria M says:

    Love the directions / recipe for pressure canned black beans. Mine always turned purple and I never knew why. Now I know to add the baking soda. Nice tip. I’m looking forward to adding the Kombu to my next pot of beans for the extra nutritional benefits.
