Happy Valentine's Day to me with my new toy

We had an early Valentine's Day this year because 1) We were out of town this weekend, and 2) Hubby had to work and has class until late tonight. So we decided to give each other's Valentine's Day gift last week. I gave hubby tickets to a LA Clippers game - his favorite basketball team. Then he surprised me with this new kitchen tool.

I've been wanting this stand mixer for so long. Don't get me wrong. I have a hand mixer. It was a gift off of my bridal registry we got 8 years ago. And its gotten me through a lot of mixing. However, I didn't use my mixer much back then as often as I use it now. And there were times when I wished I had four hands, because while mixing, I had to add this ingredient and that ingredient. I would have to be forced to shut off the mixer first in order to add ingredients. When I want to whip cream or egg whites, I have to stand there, mixer in hand, for 10 minutes at a time. Very tiring.

This stand mixer has different attachments, unlike the hand mixer which only has one attachment. So I can use it to make dough, regular cake batter, or even to whip cream and egg whites. It also has more speed than a regular hand mixer. I'm really excited to have this new kitchen tool. You know it'll be put to great use. Thanks boo!
