Everyone please welcome our new Kitchenaid mixer!

OK, its not that big of a deal to you, but I’m excited because having this mixer will open up new avenues of baking for me, and that benefits everyone! We got it for half price during a refurb sale on Amazon.com. Black is not my desired color, but they seemed to base the price on the color and since blue was about $50 more, I learned to love black.

The day it came in the mail I made 4 loaves of bread! Who cares that I was up till midnight?? I learned right then the limitations of my own kneeding skills as the dough that came of the mixer was soft and pliable, and wonderful, and what I produced with my hands was not.

Now, my goal this winter is to make my own marshmallows! I’ve read up on it, and ‘they’ say that the difference between the storebought and the homemade is similar to the difference between the individually wrapped sandwich cheese and the gourmet parmasean. They’re not even in the same realm! So I’m intriuged. As soon as the temperature drops below 60 I’m getting to work! 

I’ll be posting up pictures of the bagels that this baby produces–I can’t wait to see the difference!

If anyone has any great recipes using their mixer, please share!

And of course, here is a picture of Josiah:
