I've gone through my share of mixers over the years.
I have a KA stand mixer as well as a DeLongi 7 qt. stand mixer.
When I did catering I needed both. You can't make 70 loaves of Irish Soda Bread in one night without a second mixer. Well, you could, but I had to go to work the next morning, and I did need to sleep! :)
You always need a hand mixer. I had one of Wolfgang Puck's that had 3 beaters which I loved, but it puckered out on me. (BTW, did anyone see old Wolfie on HSN recently where he shared a little too much info about his sex life and also used inappropriate language?) I bet he gets a little talking to about it!
So I bought this...
Kitchen Aid, many speeded wonder. NOT!
Pitiful power, took forever to whip the cream.
Didn't deserve space in my cabinet!
I bought this one, for one fourth the price of the KA.
I got it in CTS and I had a coupon so it came to about 15 dollars.
Great power, and even a little bowl scraper that snaps on.
I don't know how long it will last, but while it has life, I am happy!
Our 41st Anniversary was Monday. A dear friend died suddenly so we didn't celebrate, but DH did make a batch of Blueberry Apple Muffins for our breakfast.
He does make the best muffins, and he won't even give me the recipe he made up. He IS the Muffin Man for sure! :)
I haven't been able to visit much the last week, life comes first, blogging gets put on hold. Plus my keyboard sometimes starts typing on its own in a very strange language. My son hooked up a new wifi so I could use my ipad, and somehow the keyboard is throwing fits!
Hope to be back for Tablescape Thursday, God willing.
Thanks for stopping by!
