KitchenAid 7 Quart Mixer Review
I can’t think of a better kitchen appliance to talk about during Chillin for the Holidays than the newest addition to our kitchen, the KitchenAid 7 quart stand mixer. I should be honest though. I originally started writing this post for a new cookie recipe. I was so excited about this new recipe I had dreamed up and I couldn’t wait to make the cookies in this mixer and take them to my first ever cookie exchange. Then reality set in.
I am NOT a baker. My sister inherited that gene. I try my best but I simply have a difficult time. And this brilliant new cookie recipe was attempted twice before I threw in the towel and went for Pam’s Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe to which I knew I had all the ingredients on hand.
But let’s not fault the mixer for my lack of baking skills. And let’s not be fooled, not even an amazing mixer can save someone with an affinity for making cookies into pancakes. No matter how much it costs! But the mixer IS amazing.
This is a new model put out by KitchenAid. I believe it to be the perfect size for once a month cooking. In addition to making cookies I have made a double batch of pizza dough with this mixer with ease. And have you seen that pizza dough recipe? Over 12 cups of flour for a double batch? That has to be a powerful mixer! And the color, Cinnamon Gloss? It is absolutely, positively gorgeous. Put a big bow on it and it is ready to be under the tree.
My husband also decided to take this moment to do a photo session of the kids cooking with me. They had a blast. And as you can see, Tessa was our quality control staff member. Clearly the chocolate in use passed the test. Now I just need to teach her fractions so that she can help me not over measure ingredients.
