KitchenAid Custom Mixers and a Baker’s Dream

One of the things I love to do is bake. Of course right now I’m not doing a lot because of my health issues, but it is something I hope to pick back up again soon. And by soon I mean before Christmas. That’s the main time of year that I really go all out on baking. One year all of my gifts to people were baked goods. I made lemon squares, peppermint bark and I’m pretty sure the 3rd thing were Spritz cookies (which are basically sugar cookies made using a cookie gun).

One of the things that would have made all that baking so much easier would have been a KitchenAid Mixer. I have dreamed of owning one for so long. Right now all I have is a hand held mixer, and though it works pretty well, not having to hold the bowl in one hand and the mixer in the other would help a lot. I wouldn’t have to worry about the bowl flying out of my hands (its never happened to me, but I’m sure it’s just a matter of time) and I could get the next step ready while the current ingredients were mixing. Plus I could get awesome attachments like the ice cream and pasta maker. All that is just one one of the many reasons I’m entering PartSelect’s KitchenAid Giveaway! 3 bloggers will win an incredible KitchenAid Mixer that was custom designed by Nicole Dinardo.

Besides a KitchenAid Mixer, some of the other appliances I’d love to have in my home are a large capacity ice maker. I drink lots of ice water. I have a 28oz tumbler (that I got when I was in the hospital) that I refill at least twice a day. I fill the cup half to ¾ of the way with ice and then fill it with water. That way it stays nice and cold for a long time. So having lots of ice on hand would be a wonderful thing.

I’d also love a fancy chef/restaurant type stove and though it’s not an appliance, I love the added storage space of having my pots and pans right there, just like in this photo below.

The last appliance I’d most love to have would be a fridge/freezer with lots of room. My mom has a side by side fridge and though it seemed to be a good size when she first got it, we realize now it doesn’t hold nearly as much stuff as well as she originally though. I think part is just the placement. It’s in the corner, so when you open the fridge, the door only opens so far because of the wall. Which then makes it hard to reach into the back.

I like the refridgerators that are “hidden” and blend into the surrounding cabinets. Can you see it? Do you?

These slide out pantry shelves aren’t too shabby either.
