Tess Masters—aka, The Blender Girl—shares easy plant-based recipes that anyone can whip up fast in a blender. Tess’s lively, down-to-earth approach has attracted legions of fans looking for quick and fun ways to prepare healthy food. In The Blender Girl, Tess’s much-anticipated debut cookbook, she offers 100 whole-food recipes that are gluten-free and vegan, and rely on natural flavors and sweeteners. Many are also raw and nut-, soy-, corn-, and sugar-free.
Smoothies, soups, and spreads are a given in a blender cookbook, but this surprisingly versatile collection also includes appetizers, salads, and main dishes with a blended component, like Fresh Spring Rolls with Orange-Almond Sauce, Twisted Caesar Pleaser, Spicy Chickpea Burgers with Portobello Buns and Greens, and I-Love-Veggies! Bake. And even though many of Tess’s smoothies and shakes taste like dessert—Apple Pie in a Glass, Raspberry-Lemon Cheesecake, or Tastes-Like-Ice- Cream Kale, anyone?—her actual desserts are out-of this-world good, from Chocolate-Chile Banana Spilly to Flourless Triple-Pecan Mousse Pie and Chai Rice Pudding. Best of all, every recipe can easily be adjusted to your personal taste: add an extra squeeze of this, another handful of that, or leave something out altogether— these dishes are super forgiving, so you can’t mess them up.
Details on the benefits of soaking, sprouting, and dehydrating; proper food combining; and eating raw, probiotic-rich, and alkaline ingredients round out this nutrient-dense guide. But you don’t have to understand the science of good nutrition to run with The Blender Girl—all you need is a blender and a sense of adventure. So dust off your machine and get ready to find your perfect blend. ($19.99)

We love this gorgeous new pattern from Le Cadeaux! With cool blue and green tones in a fish motif, it’s just right for lakeside or poolside dining. We show it here paired with their Antiqua Blue solid blue pattern as an accent.
This is possibly the most realistic “pottery” design from Le Cadeaux we’ve ever seen. It has a slight crackle finish, and it even fooled some of us when we first saw it. It’s hard to believe this is durable, dishwasher-safe, and virtually unbreakable. Le Cadeaux makes the highest quality melamine dinnerware on the market. It is triple the weight of other lower priced and lower quality melamine dinnerware. You won’t believe it’s melamine until you pick it up!
3 piece place settings are $39.99, and accessory pieces start at $28.99. Your outdoor entertaining deserves an update- and Le Cadeaux is where it should start!

Now at Faraday’s, E-cloths aren’t just cleaning cloths, they are Chemical Free Cleaning. In fact, e-cloth is featured in the May issue of Real Simple magazine, and has been rated Best of the Best in three separate categories!
The best microfiber cloths on the market have between 90,000 and 200,000 fibers per square inch. E-cloths have 1.6 Million fibers per inch! The microfiber cloths are made of polyester and nylon, so they don’t “absorb” anything. Water, dirt, oil, grease, grime and even bacteria are trapped within the fibers.
The e-cloth is also proven to remove over 99% of bacteria from a hard surface. These cloths don’t kill bacteria, they collect bacteria from surfaces. The best part – when you run this cloth under hot water in your sink, all but .01% of that bacteria, dirt, oil and grease is released from the cloth down the sink. So, there is virtually no transfer back onto clean surfaces. Using an e-cloth and just water can give your home the best clean it’s ever had with less effort and expense than your current cleaning method.
E-cloth is the best solution for the toughest cleaning challenges: Windows, Stainless Steel Surfaces, Bathrooms, and Kitchens. Your windows and mirrors get a crystal clear clean and the glass is left lint-free and streak free. Your stainless steel surfaces will be smudge-free and fingerprint-free. Kitchen surfaces from countertops to sinks, stoves, and microwaves all clean up quickly and completely using just an e-cloth and water. Prices start at $3.99.
