kitchenaid love

My mom got me this B-EAUTIFUL! bright red kitchenade for Christmas. I have been wishing for one for a long time. It has been incredibly helpful so far, and I know what I will use it until it dies. This weekend I made:

-4 batches of scones (lavender and chocolate chip)
-8 loaves of bread
-a double batch of chocolate chip cookies
-a doubled batch of corn chips

I am so over mixing by hand! I have to say though that I have good muscles for a skinny girl...due to the bread kneading and the mixing of tons of stuff. We are trying to not buy any pre-made things...at all. (key word "TRYING") our goal is to make/bake/cook and eat things that we know what is going into it...to the best of our ability. That is why this bright red kitchenade comes in handy...THANK YOU MOM!!!

yay! i'm so happy for you. aren't kitchenaide's awesome!? i esp. like that i can put the dough ingredients in, turn it on and then come back and it's all soft and smooth. makes bread so do-able. i am totally with you on the make-your-own stuff. i hate buying anything pre-made or processed. of course, sometimes i need to, but i try to make everything from scratch. it's so much fun. keep me informed on what you make.

ps how did you make the corn chips?
post or email, either one...
