So yeah, that whole plan to wait until it wasn't 100 degrees out before turning on the oven and trying out the new mixer?
Didn't happen. I couldn't wait.
This mixer powered through preparing chocolate chip cookie dough, which typically defeats my little handheld mixer (which is still very handy for light duty tasks, and is also a KitchenAid) that my mom got for me when I moved out on my own for grad school.
I love this stand mixer.
(I also ordered the pasta roller attachments last night, so watch for homemade noodles on Monday...)
