Sure wish I had something like this when I first started cooking! Would’ve saved me from some confusion.
Today I finally put my stand-mixer to use! I’m not sure it was really that necessary but seriously, it’s pretty fun. My only question now is how long do I whisk until smooth and is it possible to over-whisk mochi “batter”? (would it be called batter?)
I’m not a baker. But one day, when I was with my fiancé at a couple’s house, and the wife was giving us some delicious hummus, I asked about her KitchenAid mixer. She told me she used it all the time, and she even made hummus in it! I was amazed. She asked me if I wanted one. Did I want one? I wasn’t sure what to say. I was not a baker. But I knew that a KitchenAid standing mixer was an item that many girls coveted, and so I wasn’t about to turn one down even if I never needed or wanted one. Sure, it’d be nice to have one. She surprised me by saying that she had an extra, and I could have it as my wedding gift. What? That’s not what I was expecting! I felt grateful and a little sheepish. So here I am. A non-baker, with a KitchenAid standing mixer. I do not bake because I do not eat sweets often. But today, I want to bake. This recipe for peach pie looks easy yet tasty enough, so I’m going to try it. We’ll see how it goes.
