Have a new KitchenAid food processor

Hey everybody, I haven't posted in so long on this website even though I am a member. When I received a happy birthday greeting I realized I hadn't been here in a long time. I had forgotten what a great place this is to come. I could read on and on. There is a wealth of info. My reason for posting is my new processor. Does anyone know of a good recipe book for f.p. The book that came with mine did not have any. Also, this is going to sound crazy but I make my own detergent and need to shred the soap. I assume this wont hurt the disk.I just don't want to damage it. I hope I have made some sense. It is late and time for me to turn in. Thanks, Faye

I'd recommend getting a cheap hand shredder for that purpose. Unless you want your food smelling and tasting like soap.

Thanks Corey, I guess I could continue to use the old box grater for that. In fact I do still have my old food processor that is about worn out but will still run enough to grate that soap, I may keep it around just for that. I sure don't want to ruin my new one. Faye

Here are some online food processor recipes from a Google search.

As for books, I have read a lot of people swear by The Food Processor Bible. The only food processor book I have is A Mostly French Food Processor Cookbook that I picked up at a used book shop about 20+ years ago.

I would not worry about your food tasting like soap. You use soap to wash it afteall. I would cut it up into smaller pieces first though. Four quarters should do it.

Thanks Michael for the links for recipes. I have heard the fp bible is really good. I haven't used the fp very much since I sliced my thumb the first day I got it. Those disk are really sharp!!!
You know GB, that was my thoughts too about washing it afterwards would get it clean, but then again I thought I might be wrong. Like I said earlier on the post I have an old one that I could use for making the detergent but I really hate to keep it because it smells like the motor gets hot when I use it and too it is taking up good space under the cabinet. I know one thing the new one sure does operate quiet and smooth. Thanks, Faye

I have and old Robot Coupe processor, come to think of it. If anyone wants it, they can have it. It still works I just don't like the small feed tube.
