My Christmas Present

I have wanted a stand mixer for probably the past 10 to 15 years, at least. A good stand mixer. My mom gave me her old Sunbeam stand mixer a long time ago, and it was okay for light stuff, but it didn't cut it for heavy-duty mixing. There have been several times when Neal has wanted to get me one, but for one reason or another we didn't get it. Usually because I couldn't stand the thought of spending that much money on a mixer! Well, it has finally happened. We made the leap and Neal purchased this mixer for me! I am so excited. I haven't gotten it yet, but it has been ordered and will be delivered to my home in less than two weeks! WooHoo!!

I always thought I'd get a Kitchen-Aid, but after doing some research on-line I decided to go with this one. Just like the Kitchen-Aid it has all kinds of attachments I can purchase separately. Right now I'll be happy with the three attachments it comes with! The two things that persuaded me to get the Cuisinart were the stronger motor (800 watts for the 5 1/2 qt mixer), and the timer. I think that will come in quite handy!

Neal, if you're reading this: Thank you so much! I can't wait to make my bread dough in this instead of my bread machine!

Congrats on the new mixer! I would love to have one also. Just wondering if you have ever been to Pioneer Woman Cooks? She has some great giveaways pretty regularly. You may have to google it to find it.
