Fried Fish Tostada Recipe with Crema, Salsa Verde, and Slaw Recipes + KitchenAid 5-Speed Hand Blender Review

Hey folks, readers of this blog know that I don’t do many product reviews. It’s normally not really my thing, but I was given the opportunity to test out KitchenAid‘s 5-Speed Hand Blender and really couldn’t pass it up. The two main reasons were 1) I received and got to keep one of the hand blenders and 2) I believe strongly in a hand blender being a part of any kitchen so I wanted to take the opportunity to show you what a good one can do.

Part of KitchenAid’s requirements for receiving this 5-speed Hand Blender for review is that I publish it with a recipe. That was actually their only requirement aside from publishing a review. I was happy that this was something they wanted because I like to try to include a recipe with as many posts as I can here on Culicurious. It serves you best when I can provide valuable content like a recipe. It’s also good for you when I can provide feedback on an item like the KitchenAid 5-Speed Hand Blender because it does retail for around $97 on Amazon. No small amount of change, but if it’s a great tool, well-worth that investment.
