So I’ve been cooking up a storm around here lately. Every Wednesday I do my best to get a recipe created, tested, tested again and written up and I’m enjoying it immensely. Rob and I have been joking that we both need a bigger pants size (seriously, we’ve both gone up a pants size :) but that it’s worth it in the end.
Most of our meals have been super speedy and quick. We need to get it on the table so he can rush back into his studio to paint and I can rush back to my computer to type of words just like these. But we’ve been taking the time, at least a few times a week, to have a properly homemade meal. Just the other night I wowed my sweet Rob with a gigantic meatloaf and mashed potatoes. It is such simple food but it was enjoyed and appreciated so much!
Since I’ve been baking a lot I got myself a hot pink Kitchenaid Stand Mixer a little bit ago. It’s one of those things I would always say I wanted but never actually saw spending the money on. But when we sold the house for a modest profit we both agreed that we deserved a little treat. My treat is hot pink and sits on the counter and Rob’s treat is a recurring batch of yummy goodness that gets mixed up in that hot pink thing.
I was so excited when it arrived. Like. So. Excited.
As soon as that thing was sat on that kitchen counter I was snapping pics of that hot pink amazing-ness.
And while I worried that it may not get as much use as I’d like, my waist is here to tell you it totally gets enough use. Maybe a little too much ;)
At any rate I know that lots of home cooks like me would love one but not everybody is going to sell their house after 10 years and finally feel like it’s an okay expense SO when I heard about some fab bloggers holding a giveaway, I wanted to join in to give you guys a chance to win one.
