My New Toy

My husband managed to surprise me for Christmas this year.

He doesn't usually do that.

And I'm a little hard to surprise.

It was fantastic! And so much fun.

He got me a new toy for my kitchen. I had been talking about it, but definitely not with the expectation that he would get it for me! The object of my desire? A new red 7-quart Kitchenaid Professional Series Stand Mixer from Williams-Sonoma. Kitchenaid just came out with this version of their stand mixer, which has always been a tried and true kitchen tool. I have a red 4.5 quart already and I've put it through it's paces for years now. And I still love my little one. But this new one is oh so cool!

I had seen it on different blogs and entered many giveaways for a new one. I never win any of those things. But it's always fun to enter and wish for one!

This year, my wish came true, though not because I won one of the contests.

Want to see my new kitchen friend? Here she is....

Isn't she pretty? I do think she needs a name, though. Got any suggestions?

In the picture above, you can't quite appreciate exactly how big the new mixer is. Here is a pic of my new and old mixers side-by-side.


I look forward to making many more cakes and cookies with my new mixer! And I look forward to sharing them all with you!


  1. Congrats! How fun, I can just see you running both at the same time or even your assistant using one. : )

    Names?! Seriously?! Hmmmm, Big Red, Little Red, Big Momma, Little Momma, Cinnamon & Spice, Paprika (hmmm, not used much in baking tho), Hot Momma (heehee), Queenie & Princess .... Oye enough from me already!

  2. I like to personify my big kitchen helpers! :) Thanks for the name suggestions!
