Ever since the hubster and I have been together, we’ve always talked about our love of baking with all of its up’s and down’s. He’s baked professionally in his past whereas I’ve only dabbled in personal ventures. All my baking has been limited to simple recipes without fancy tools and gadgets. I’ve always dreamed of having a mixer as almost every recipe out there calls for the use of one.
Over a year ago, we saw a super awesome deal on a Kitchen Aid Mixer and went to snap one up for ourselves so we could ‘bake together’. When we went to buy it, there was a store ordering mix up and the store was offering the higher end professional series for the price of the lower model. (Thank you Canadian Tire for screwing up!) We got it home but have kept it in hiding because this was not a gadget we’d like dad to
try to use get his hands on. Selfish? Yes. Smart move? Oh yes.
Something must’ve been in the air because the hubster decided to dig out the mixer and bake some homemade bread. I just about died when he said that too.
See the rolls? The hubster showed me how to ‘properly’ make a roll. Man does that ever take some
patience elbow grease!
The house smelled wonderful all night after we cleaned up from baking. And yes, the mixer is back in its original box, in hiding from dad.
Do you have/use a mixer? Fave thing to make with it?
