As I’m sure my mother will attest, I have never exactly been keen on getting my hands dirty in the kitchen. I love a good meal, don’t get me wrong, but I would much prefer eating to cooking!! One part of the kitchen that I have enjoyed since I was a little girl, however, is baking. Not to say that I’m a pro by any means, or that I even do it as often as some, but I prefer baking to cooking for sure. I can remember countless hours spent at my grandma’s house baking sugar cookies (well, all kinds of cookies, really but specifically sugar cookies!). She was always so patient with me… I think this is something I recall more now that I am a mother! She would always let me measure out the flour (even though it went everywhere) and crack the eggs (even though she would have to pick out the bits of shells I broke into the bowl). It is a memory I cherish! And I think that now that I am an adult with a child of my own, I want to bake more and include my kids in those types of things as well.
All of that to say, that even though I have never felt super adept at baking, things could not have been made easier for me by my KitchenAid Stand Mixer. This baby is professional grade, but easy enough for an amateur! I have owned a KitchenAid stand mixer since Dave and I got married, but I still haven’t seen all that it can do – there are so many attachments available for it to serve whatever purpose you need it for!
So here’s what you need to know: I am partnering with TSC to tell you that today starting at 10pm until tomorrow at 9:59pm, TSC is offering the KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer Bundle as Today’s Show Stopper for only $499 (regular $799!). Guys I cannot stress enough how amazing of a deal this is!!! Not only are you getting this *incredibly* coveted stand mixer with 3 included attachments, they are also throwing in a bundle of extras including a Spring Form Pan, Tilthead Flex Edge Beater, and Sifter + Scale Attachment! If you’ve been eyeing up this guy for a while, pull the trigger because you’re not going to beat this deal!
Although it is November already and I was definitely in the mood for some Christmas cookies, my husband is a firm believer in “no Christmas until December…” Haha, no actually, I would have made them regardless of that but life was so hectic this week and I couldn’t get out to buy the cookie cutters and Christmas sprinkles I wanted so I decided to go for a classic chocolate chip cookie. You can never go wrong with that 😉 But I do plan to make some fun Christmas cookies with Mason this year too!
I’ve always been a firm believer that the best part of baking is not the process, it’s the results! I think Mason agrees with me, too… 🙂 But I will say that the process of baking with the KitchenAid Stand Mixer is waaaay easier than any other stand mixer I’ve used (cue Grandma’s old faithful!).
Can you think of anything better than cookies right out of the oven?… Me either, that’s why there’s none of these left haha! What’s your favourite thing to bake!? Leave me some fun recipes to try, please!
