It's HERE!!

It truly felt like Christmas morning when I tore into the box holding my new mixer!! I marvel at how the smallest things can always bring the hugest smile to my face. I have been eyeing the KitchenAid mixers for as long as I could remember and I spent endless hours researching just the perfect one.

So when the moment was finally at hand... I didn't waste a precious second placing it on our counter top and of course breaking it in.

You would think that the very first thing I would choose to make with it would have been some form of gourmet or complicated dessert....but nope...soft and chewy PRETZELS! I have virtually no arm muscles to speak of and what better way to get a real feel for its abilities then to have it knead the dough for me?

I must say....it was quite an odd feeling to just stand there and watch it do all the work. That is not something I'm used to in the least and in a strange way... I started to miss "the work" associated with baking from scratch but after a few melancholy seconds, I quickly realised what a wonderful and beautiful creation this thing is!!

So... here it is...in all its glory along with the yummy pretzels!

KitchenAid Professional Standmixer
Its a perfect addition!
These were incredible straight from the oven!
