Iced hibiscus tea ('jamaica flower tea'). You can make it as sweet as you like. 101 cookbooks has a recipe for it, but it's just jamaica flowers, water and sugar.

Risotto, pesto, hummus, beetroot hummus, lasagne, minestrone, dressings & mayo, quiches. When I add a salad to my repertoire, I often check the recipe once, then let intuition take over. These are all dishes I think you don't really need a recipe for, because they can't really go wrong. But maybe that's just because they go well with the way I cook.

Really worth it's value. Although it doesn't do everything a food processor does.
Over here in Belgium, practically every household owns an immersion blender; whereas food processors are more a foodie thing.

'Rick Stein's Far Eastern Odyssey', that is. Apart from the title being hard to remember, it's a really great cookbook.

Why don't you try it with a little bit of food, so you can be sure? If it still tastes bad, you can throw it away without feeling guilty.
