Kitchen Aid was the Winner!

Do you remember my blog a few weeks back on whether you preferred your Kitchen Aid Mixer or your Kenwood Chef?

The Kitchen Aid Mixer was the winner and I was really hoping I would get one for Mother's Day

I wasn't sure I would because they are a little pricey and I figured that I may have to wait and get a combined pressie for Birthday, Christmas and our Wedding anniversary. They are all in December so that could work!

But no, I didn't have to wait! I have the most wonderfullest family and I totally got spoilt yesterday :-)

I am one very, very, very, happy girl

and it works, Nicholas made me pancakes for breakfast yesterday and we used the new mixer. 

I put the ingredients in and then I turned it on.

I didn't have to cook the pancakes or clean it up. 

I just got to sit back and watch while I had my coffee:-)

I used the mixer again today to make lunch, because I could. 

We had a frittata so I whisked the eggs in it, it worked well.

I am a little nervous though, 

I feel a little pressured to be producing nicer food. 

I think the boys may start to expect cakes that are soft and spongy now,

 maybe even fancy stuff like meringues

Lucky Nick booked me into the 'How to use your new Kitchen Aid Mixer' class. I have a feeling I need it!

Did you have a nice Mother's Day?



  1. Nellie, that's wonderful!!! A great gift...and guess what? I have one exactly the same. I love it. It's silvery without being too "bright and shiny" but not a dull grey.
    Great minds think alike.
    Glad you had a nice day...happy baking

  2. Hi Nellie, what a wonderful gift and I'm sure you'll be whipping up all sorts of culinary magic - bon appetit :-)

  3. Oh what a lovely gift. Have fun creating with it. I love that they have a class for it as well.

  4. I've never seen one like yours before. Is that a glass mixing bowl?Very cool.
    I got mine nearly 10 years ago, and I still use it all the time and it works perfectly.xx

  5. I've not seen a kitchen aid mixer that looks like yours before. It's fabulous, enjoy!

  6. Happy belated mother's day to you:) That is one very lovely gift indeed, enjoy your new pressie they are really nice to use aren't they..xx

  7. I have had my chrome Kitchenaid for 14 years and it is the best appliance I have ever bought. It gets used all the time and produces wonderful baking everytime. Enjoy!
