New addition

I am proud to announce our newest addition!






















Nope, not a baby.

But now that I have your attention,
let me introduce you to this mammoth beauty, a.k.a. my birthday present!


I have wanted a KitchenAid for a very long time, which probably explains why I'd dedicate an entire post to such an occasion. For months I've researched the various models and saved my pennies. In the end, I decided to think long-term, and go with the 6 quart (Pro610). With higher wattage than any other model out there, an awesome rebate, and the aesthetic value, I couldn't turn it down! And Williams-Sonoma's service policy was just icing on the cake. If this thing ever breaks, whether it be 2 months from now or 10 years down the road, they will fix or replace it, free of charge! Very reassuring, considering KitchenAid's warranty only lasts one year!

Since Friday's big purchase, Chloe and I have broken this baby in with a sweet potato casserole, a chocolate sheet cake, and two loaves of bread. I am VERY excited for the upcoming holidays, which will only provide more opportunities to create magic in the kitchen! Neil has been joking that his waistline is going to expand significantly in the coming weeks. Guess that makes two of us, ha ha!

Here's to a yummy future!

Chloe is getting so grown up. She is looking like a little girl. I'm excited for you. Can't wait until I have one someday. My cheap-o 10 dollar one is not so good for my husband's very favorite dessert...cheesecake. Something about having to blend 4 things of cream cheese is not so good on a blender :)

That's a nice one, stainless steel would look so good in my kitchen. I am sure you will put it to great use.

That looks like a great new addition. I remember when I got my Bosch and I've loved it. I'm so glad to see that you've been making goodies for me. I'll be watching for them in the mail. Or you guys on my door step. :)

With our new house, I'm hoping Dan will get me one of these for Christmas this year. I assured him I wouldn't be like that girl on Father of the Bride when her soon-to-be hubby gives her a blender. Love it!
