If you’re looking for a top-of-the-line blender you’ll use for years to come, you simply can’t go wrong with a Vitamix. Unsurprisingly, Vitamix blenders are regularly editor-favorites around here, thanks to their long-lasting, powerful motors and strong airplane-grade stainless steel blades. One of our favorite blenders from our Best Blender list even happens to be the Vitamix 5200 Blender. But as anyone who has shopped for a Vitamix before knows, these appliances can cost a pretty penny. That’s why we suggest you buy one when it’s on sale — just like this special deal on Vitamix blenders happening right now at QVC!

As a special early 4th of July deal, QVC is taking $50 off a select range of Vitamix models from now until July 17. This includes Explorian and Ascend models, which are both high-powered tools that also aren’t overly complicated. Blend smoothies, soup, marinades, and more or even prep bread dough and pulverize nuts. There’s a wide range of kitchen tasks you can accomplish with these impressive blenders, made even better by this awesome Vitamix sale!

My Favorite (Oprah-Loved!) Instant Superlatte Brand Just Dropped a Limited-Edition Flavor And It’s Perfect for Summer

My Favorite (Oprah-Loved!) Instant Superlatte Brand Just Dropped a Limited-Edition Flavor And It’s Perfect for Summer

Ever since I took my first sip of Clevr Blends, I always have it stocked in my fridge. While these instant lattes whip up in seconds, they certainly do not taste instant. In fact, they’re so delicious, that they taste just like my favorite $8 latte that I get at a fancy coffee shop (dare I say, they might even be better). Oh, and Oprah and Meghan Markle love them, too, so you seriously are doing yourself a disservice if you haven’t tried these luxe drinks out yet!

I’ve been a longtime fan of their best-selling Matcha, but now they’ve got a new spin on the classic drink that’s perfect for summer. Today, the Oprah-loved brand just dropped a limited-edition Rose Matcha Superlatte, which was designed in collaboration with professional Afro-Latina surfer and Clevr ambassador Nique Miller. The brand’s best-selling Matcha gets a fun summer upgrade with sweet rose and fair-trade vanilla bean. It even has vegan collagen, too — say no more!

My favorite part about Clevr Blends’ decadent lattes — aside from the fact that I can easily make them when I’m half awake in the morning — is that you can drink them hot or iced so you can drink them year round. Just add in water, froth it up, and you’ve got a fancy drink that’s guaranteed to impress your taste buds. And just like Clevr Blends’ other lattes, it’s $28 a bag, which includes around 14 servings.

I really wasn’t a Matcha fan until I tried Clevr Blends. Unlike other versions, this one doesn’t taste like you’re straight up drinking plants. It has a heavenly balance of sweetness and the oat milk in the powder makes it super creamy.

And while it tastes good, it’s good for you too! I’d be remiss not to highlight all the mood-boosting qualities this adaptogen-based drink boasts. Most importantly, the SuperCreamer prevents jitters that a traditional cup of java gives off. It’s also packed with probiotics; Reishi can help boost your mood and Ashwagandha can help soothe stress. Basically, if you’re looking to get a jumpstart to your day in half the time, make a beeline for these better-for-you lattes. Not to mention, they make me feel as talented as a barista (even though I’m far from one). As a bonus, 1 percent of sales from this latte will be donated to Meals on Wheels. So, I’m pretty stoked to try out this fun take on the classic latte (mine is on the way!). I’m a fan of rose-flavored anything, so I’m sure this is going to win my taste bud’s approval. Stay tuned to hear my thoughts once I give it a whirl. I have a feeling it’ll be love at first sip!

This Store-Bought Dressing Makes a Perfect Pasta Salad Every Time

This Store-Bought Dressing Makes a Perfect Pasta Salad Every Time

One clink of this glass and I’m brought back to my aunt’s backyard on a hot summer day, surrounded by family at a table shaded with a fraying, sun-faded umbrella. The glass, though, isn’t a flute filled with Champagne or sparkling wine. In fact, it isn’t a drinking glass at all. This is a black-lidded glass cruet and it contains my favorite herb-laden dressing, made with a packet of Good Seasons Zesty Italian Dressing & Recipe Mix.

Developed in 1954 at the Brown Derby Restaurant by chef Robert Kreis, Good Seasons dressings (originally called Four Seasons) were available in four flavors and sold by mail order, according to the Kraft-Heinz consumer relations director. The company’s signature fluted glass cruet was sold alongside the dressing packets, which contain a blend of herbs and spices. (Fun fact: On the front of the cruet you’ll find the etchings of a dressing recipe; three lines — each with a corresponding letter (O, V, and W) — signify how much oil, vinegar, and water to add to the herb blend. The recipe can also be found on the packet.) 

The company had its moment in the spotlight in the early ’90s, with new flavors introduced as late as 1997, but has since faded into the backdrop. The bright yellow box, though, has had its place in every pantry I’ve known since my childhood. And now, as an adult, it’s the one I grab whenever I need an easy, delicious dressing for pasta salad.

Once mixed, the dressing is a thick concoction with a taste that’s unmistakably tangy, subtly sweet, and vaguely reminiscent of chopped salads from my local pizzeria. When tossed with your favorite pasta shape (I love a classic rotini!) and various pasta salad accouterments (thinly sliced olives, red peppers, halved cherry tomatoes, some fresh herbs, even bacon), it’s a star at any backyard buffet.

My classic combo is olive oil and red wine vinegar, but I’ll also swap in other ingredients to give my pasta salad a refresh: Apple cider vinegar gives the dressing more punch, and sesame oil lends a unique toasty flavor. For a creamy dressing, I’ll add a dollop of Dijon mustard or a few tablespoons of tahini. (Try drizzling some over vegetables hot off the grill!)

Beyond salads and bowls of leafy greens, the mix makes a great base for a marinade or dip, and serves as a piquant addition to broths or soups. It’s also worth noting that the packets are shelf-stable and can be stored longer than other refrigerated salad dressings. In all my decades of using it, though, that has yet to be an issue.

What’s your favorite store-bought pasta salad dressing? Tell us in the comments below.
