Ode to my Kitchen Aid Mixer

Ok, I'm definitely NOT a poet, so I'm not going to butcher the craft of poetry by messing up how odes are supposed to be written. Instead I'm going to share with you the LOVE I have for my Kitchen Aid Mixer.

Let me begin by saying I was given this mixer by my parents back in 2000 (yes, 12 years ago - seems like an eternity, doesn't it?)!

I have the basic attachments for it & that's it - very "no frills".

If you've never used one, let me tell you that this mixer is a WORKHORSE!

We have been through literally HUNDREDS of cakes, cupcakes, brownies, cookies, icings, bread doughs, etc together over the last 12 years & it still "keeps on ticking"! (In reality, with my sweet tooth & hubby's, it's probably made more like THOUSANDS of recipes! LOL)

Do I wish I had the "fancy stuff" for it (meat grinder, pasta making attachments, etc)? HECK YES! But those are equally as expensive as the mixer (though I'm sure well worth it, as the mixer is)!

Someday, I WILL own all the fun attachments and HOPEFULLY a second mixer (sometimes I'm washing that bowl 3 or 4 times a day when I'm in "full holiday baking mode")!

If you have a Kitchen Aid & love it as much as I do, comment here & say how long you have owned yours!
