My favorite appliance

About 6 or 7 years ago I got a KitchenAid KSM150PSWH Artisan Series 5-Quart Mixer, White. It was an exciting gift but it has become an appliance I cannot live without. I swear, if it broke suddenly, even if I was dirt poor I would eat beans and rice for a month just to be able to get another one as soon as possible. Things I love about my Kitchen Aid.

1) Baking is so easy, I don't even think about it.
2) I can make 120 cupcakes without batting an eye
3) I can make pasta with the awesome KitchenAid SNFGA Pasta Maker Attachment for Stand Mixers. Easy as 1.2.3.
4) I never have to knead dough ever again. Bread has become really easy to make!
5)If I have a craving for gingerbread at 9pm, NO PROBLEM

For Christmas I got KitchenAid KICA0WH Ice Cream Maker Attachment. Now life has become a whole new ballpark. Yesterday I made pumpkin ice cream!!! The feeling of pouring that batter into my freezer bowl and watching it turn into ice cream within 15 minutes was the most exciting thing ever. Yes, I am a dork but come on people. ICE CREAM!

Anyways, I know this has nothing to do with plush but once in awhile it's fun to talk food. And I love my Kitchen Aid so much I had to tell you all. If you have thought about purchasing one but don't know if it's worth it. It's WORTH EVERY PENNY!

I have one too in Pink. Sometimes, I feel like the bulk of my reputation weighs heavily on my beautiful stand mixer. For example, my husband's co-workers love my cheesecake and if it weren't for the ease of my stand mixer, I wouldn't be up for the challenge of filling the orders I get around this time of year. I had to make 10 cheesecakes in the 3 days leading to Christmas! I got mine when I was earning meager wages at Sears 4 years ago and it cost me most of my small check. But they are definitely worth every cent.

You made PUMPKIN ice cream? That sounds so amazing. . . .

I definitely just realized how amazing these mixers are last week! I must have made half a ton of cookies with my Grandma in New Mexico and it took half the time with hers. B-e-a-utiful!

The ice cream maker is an excellent attachment. I feel the same way about my Kitchen Aid.
