its a classic, and we are talking about a very strong 50s vibe. a spongecake!!

Genevieve said...

Definitely make a cake. You will find yourself with an excuse to make something at least once a week. You will be the lady in the office who brings cake. Welcome to the addiction.

It's beautiful! That's the colour I would choose and I'd probably hug it too!! Go to the Pioneer Womans blog and make something from there. She has tonnes of recipes and uses her Kitchenaid A LOT. Have fun and enjoy!

Suzanne, I know - that pale blue just screams 1950s to me!

Genevieve - I'm already browsing recipe books and websites, but haven't had time to make anything yet! Thank goodness we have a 3 day weekend this week. I suspect it will get a good workout!

Bella - I know, the colour is just gorgeous. I will definitely check out the Pioneer Woman's blog. I haven't stopped by over there for a while, but I'm sure she'll have something good. Thanks for the rec!

Congrats! The turquoise is beeeeutiful. Make something that is normally a 'pain in the rumpshaker'. :)

Julia R said...

Jenny - Yeah, I want to try something really complex just to give it a good workout!

Thanks for reading!

It is beautiful!! I think you should make something that requires you to beat lots of egg whites. That's when you see the incredible beauty of this machine :)

Julia R said...

Kiki - oh, good idea! Perhaps Eton Mess, so I can whip up some meringues!

Dee said...

LOVE THE COLOUR. My ex bought me a cream Kitchenaid a few years ago for my birthday and I hugged mine too. I walked past and patted it about ten times a day for a week or so as well.

Make a sponge or a pavlova - it does a fantastic job of beating egg whites. The first thing I made was a sponge from THE BIBLE (AKA The Kitchen Companion) and it worked perfectly.

Julia R said...

Dee, I know what you mean. I keep gazing at it while I'm cooking dinner. It's so pretty!

Hannah said...

So. Much. Envy. I think I'd put this on the empty side of my bed every night if I owned it.

Julia R said...

Hannah, I know exactly what you mean! It is gorgeous!

Jennifer Huerta said...

Julia, thanks for the comment! Yeah, sometimes only 90's will do. This orange and cranberry scone recipe is next on my list of goodies to make.

Jennifer, that sounds delicious! Thanks for stopping by!

SWOON! I want to get one someday soon. I hear they are amazing. What a fun gift!

Julia R said...

Anna, I cannot tell you how happy I am to look at that appliance on my kitchen bench every day!
