I sweet talked a kitchen aid to come home with me last week. It’s been about twenty years since I last had a stand mixer and I am very happy to give one a home. I made soda bread on the 17th even though I don’t like soda bread much. I made gf challah for shabbat and when it went into the oven I wasn’t sore or exhausted from mixing (my experience is you don’t really knead gf dough it’s too gooey and liquid). I’m very happy to give this cheerful bluebird a home and a chance shelter on some valuable counter top space.
What else will be in its long, happy, and healthy future? I see lots of baking and maybe even marshmallows.
Yes, I let E talk me out of a grey one. If I ever overwork this guy I think he’ll try to camouflage in with the walls… current debate is if my office or the upstairs bath provides a better match to the sleek body… well, I know where to look.
Question: Do you have any accessories for your kitchen aid? Did you try them and hate them and find them a waste of money? I’m thinking of the slicer, the bowl scraping paddle, and of course the pasta roller. Not all at once. I think the slicer & pasta have priority, but the bowl scraper looks really really cool.
eta: the mixer came with the awesome splatter guard thing. See my comment for more details on how it is changing my life probably more than the mixer. ;)
