OH my gosh! Two posts in a row!
…you lucky ducks. 🙂
So continuing with my graduation theme, I’d like to introduce you to the newest addition to the family…
HECK yeah! A KITCHENAID!
Owning one of these has been a dream of mine since I was little girl.
I pined and lusted over my momma’s this past summer. And whatdya know, she just happened to notice!
I mean, I never dropped any hints at all… 😉
Group gift from the ‘rents and gramma! I even got to pick out my very own. I went with classic silver to match my blender and food processor.
So to say thank you, I baked a HUGE batch of oatmeal raisin cookies – not anything exceptionally healthy or interesting here folks. Just Quaker Oat’s Vanishing Oatmeal Raisin Cookie recipe. Still delicious.
Gosh, my darling KitchenAid makes mixing SO easy. Have you ever tried to handmix oatmeal raisin cookies? Nearly impossible.
For example, see exhibit one:
Uhhhh yeah… the frickin’ spatula snapped in half when I was pushing the batter down. Oatmeal raisin cookie dough is cement I tell you! I really don’t know how I survived before…
Nom, nom, nom. They turned out perfect! And it took me half the time to make!
Thanks Mom, Dad, and Gramma! Love you!
By the way, I’m taking treat requests. ANY excuse to bring the mixer out! 🙂
Bahaha! Sorry, I couldn’t resist.
And don’t worry. A cookie every once in a while won’t give you diabetes.
So let me make you some!
