Q: I got an immersion blender for Christmas. I don't really have any blender recipes beyond smoothies.

What should I make to take it out for its maiden blend?

Editor: Robin, a lot of our readers waxed lyrical about their immersion blenders a couple days ago:

Immersion Blenders: Should You Buy One?

And of course it's Soup Week, so we're thinking soups! Try a squash or potato soup, simmered until tender, then pureed all creamy with your new toy. Watch for a little more on immersion blenders later today, too!

Readers, how should Robin break in her new immersion blender?
