Nate totally surprised me and got me a super fancy Christmas present....my VERY OWN Kitchen Aid mixer! I've had one of these bad boys on my wish list for some time...
I didn't have much on hand and I wanted to keep it simple and easy so I decided on breadsticks. I definitely never would have made them without this lovely gadget!
Anywho, I decided to document the blossoming of my new friendship.
here we go!
letting the yeast sit in warm water
ain't she a beauty!
all of the ingredients...let's start her up!
hard at work mixing like it's her job...oh wait, it is! ;)
all mixed up, kneaded and rolled into a log
slice 'n dice
looking more like breadsticks
so many of them!
rising under the towels
spooned on the butter (unfortunately, didn't have a brush)
pretty snow outside
time to enjoy!
