My Kitchenaid Adventures

My husband survived his oral surgery yesterday. I spent my day making sure he was comfortable and following the doctors orders. He is doing much better this morning than he was last night. He barely has any pain, which is a major improvement from yesterday. I'm happy, he's happy and it's a beautiful day!

I woke up early this morning and began making bread. It my new favorite thing to do. Who would have known? I am making the beginners bread recipe I found last week, with a twist. I can't wait to share it with you!

That's not all I want to share with you. I've been thinking, and I've decided to start a little series called My KitchenAid Adventures. Ever since buying my new KitchenAid standing mixer last weekend, I have been obsessed. I am not ashamed!





There is just something about this kitchen appliance that makes me feel like I can do anything I put my mind to. The first day with my KitchenAid, I made two perfect loaves of bread. I had never even tried to make bread previous to this first try, and thanks to my KitchenAid stand mixer, I nailed it!




A few days later, I made homemade pie crust for the first time, for my first ever homemade pecan pie. These are things I never even thought to try before buying my KitchenAid. Now, of course, you can make these things without a KitchenAid. Even me, being the beginner that I am, could have made these baked goods by hand. However, the KitchenAid stand mixer made me really want to make these things. It ignited a love for baking inside of me that I didn't even know was there. Hallelujah!

Since I am so passionate about my KitchenAid stand mixer, I think My KitchenAid Adventures will be the perfect place to share joy. I hope to share with you the recipes that I made (successfully) with help from my KitchenAid standing mixer.

Since this is a healthy living bog (and eating bread all day is not considered healthy) I will try to keep my KitchenAid Adventures to a minimum. Just expect to see some updates from time to time (like every day this week) (just kidding).
