I got a KitchenAid mixer as a wedding gift from Steve's sister and brother-in-law Jamelle and John. This sleek and shiny tool makes my life very happy. I love that I can just toss all of the ingredients in and walk-away while it mixes. The bowl is large and never splatters and its easy to clean. I have started baking more because of this new toy which is perfect timing for the holiday season. Pumpkin muffins, pie, and yummy treats to come all throughout December!!
