I grew up making chocolate chip cookies on my mom's Kitchen Aide mixer. I didn't realize what a staple it is until I didn't have one anymore.
Fortunately, a little over 3 years ago, my parents gave me a mixer of my own. The first thing I made was chocolate chip cookies, natch.
Today, I was putting away the recently cleaned bowl and realized how many food items I currently have in the house that were made with aid of the mixer:
- chocolate chip cookies
- homemade marshmallows (yes, I'm working on writing out the process for that! I have a recipe, but as usual, I have changes and annotations.)
I also make sugar cookies and royal icing with it, along with other lovely things that I can't think of at the moment. (Maybe I'll come back and update after future cooking/baking fun.)
So, thank you, Kitchen Aide mixer, for doing your job so well.
