Here’s To Freedom In The Kitchen! YEAH!

So, this year my Valentine’s day was surprisingly different! I have been eyeing a Kitchen Aid mixer since my husband and I got married 10 years ago. I never received one for my wedding, so I never thought to save up and buy one for myself. I have been mixing all my recipes and cake mixes by hand ever since. You can go ahead and still mix by hand, but let me tell you, to my surprise my Valentine’s day brought me a whole new freedom I’ve never had.

That freedom came in the form of a Black Artisan Kitchen Aid Mixer! Yes, finally after 10 years I am free to mix by machine and not by my little arms. Now, I am not complaining, mixing by hand is great, and a good workout, however, mixing in the mixer is a whole new ball game!

I have been mixing my cake mix recipes now in this mixer as well as using the cookbook that came with the mixer. It has all kinds of recipes that are very easy to do and very inexpensive to make. You can make your own bread, your own pizza dough, etc. It is really easy to use and easy to clean.

My latest experiment is that I made biscuits from scratch using the mixer, and they came out great AND i was able to get it done much more quickly before school for my kids. I totally recommend this product. I have been VERY happy with it experimenting with recipes, adding and reducing ingredients and creating new fun food items! (One of which you may have seen me post on Facebook.. Muffin Pockets- recipe to follow).

Check out this mixer ASAP! My husband ordered my Kitchen Aid standing mixer through Amazon.com and we have been very pleased!! (And so have our tummies!)
