I bought myself a Christmas, birthday, valentine, Mother's Day present. I've been wanting a Kitchen Aid stand mixer for a long time now and never could bring myself to spend that much money on something just to cook with. Christmas baking finally convinced me I needed something else. One cheap-o hand mixer & one garage sale stand mixer thrown in the trash after trying to prepare simple cookies was the final hint I needed to let go of my thrifty ways.
I couldn't wait to use it and couldn't decide what to make first. The first thing was a coconut pound cake. The next week I really put it to the test. Homemade yeast rolls, bread & chocolate meringue pie...all in the same morning!
It is great!! I'm afraid I might get roly-poly if I keep fixing the bread! Good stuff!
