Making Bread Just Got Easier

Paul bought me a new mixer! It's HUGE! We bought a Cuisinart 7 Qt Stand Mixer. I have been wanting a big mixer for a long time, but cost prevented it. But, Paul set aside some of our tax return money to go for the mixer.

"What is it, Daddy?"
My first attempt with making bread in the mixer, instead of by hand.
The finished product.... well, actually we had three loaves.
But, we gave one to our pastor, who came by for a visit today. 
And, the other loaf disappeared very quickly!
I guess that means it was a success!

Yay! I've seen the Cuisinart one in stores--it's really nice! I inherited my Kitchenaid (which I'm really happy with), but let me know how you end up liking your Cuisinart. My Kitchenaid is pretty old, and I have a feeling I may have to replace it in the next few years. Can't wait to see what kinds of things you make in it besides bread!

Aren't husbands great? :)

I've had my KitchenAid for 11 years, some of the speeds aren't working and it won't stay in the off position, but until it actually dies, I'll keep using it -I'll have to check into the Cuissenart brand when mine finally goes. Do enjoy, it is such a luxury and a blessing!

We read all the reviews before making a purchase. It seemed like the people who used to own KitchenAid mixers were disappointed with the new models. Also, the guarantee on Cuisinart is longer... three years for the motor, instead of KitchenAid's one year.

This mixer says it can handle 15 cups of flour or up to 15 dozen cookies! OH, and the recipe book it came with looks wonderful! I can't wait to try their bread recipes!

I will keep you ladies posted!
