The bar has been lowered

April 20, 2013

During one of the many semesters I was in college, I fell into a crowd of musicians.

The first thing I made with my new mixer

April 16, 2013

I thought for a long time about what the first thing I would mix in my new Kitchenaid mixer would be and this past weekend, I finally got to get mixing.
I’ve wanted a mixer for over a year. How anyone goes to a department store and doesn’t drool over the arrangement of brightly colored mixers, I will never know. And finally, my time came.
