Look at that cute kid. She definitely should not be allowed in the kitchen. As you can see, she is fairly certain that her pivotal role is to model the holiday apron and bat her eyes. Sigh.
Look behind her, in the corner. See that gleaming(ish) red KitchenAid mixer? I heart it. And yet, I rarely use it. I think it’s like owning priceless crystal – I’m afraid I’ll break it, and I’m unfamiliar with all its facets.
See? There it is again: neglected. Wistful. Wanting to contribute, but lacking opposable thumbs.
And so, this year I am certainly entertaining far more important resolutions to better my life in other areas, but I have one sole resolution in the kitchen: to get to know my KitchenAid. She’s a beauty, but surely she can do more than mix dough.
I’ll start with recipes from the KitchenAid site, but I want some input as well – do you have a KitchenAid stand mixer? If so, how do you use it? If not, how would you use one? And, if you’re coveting one, check out these works of art to get your kitchen + design heart singing!
Next week, I’m excited to post about my recent visit to my good friend Srividya Venkatasubramanya’s (!) kitchen to learn about real Indian food. It. Was. Awesome. I’ll share plenty of photos and the recipes she shared with me.
In the meantime, help me put my KitchenAid stand mixer to work! I want a recipe a month this year. Let’s mix it up! Any kitchen resolutions of your own for 2013?
Happy new year!
