I love my husband. He gave me a gift for Christmas that keeps on giving – a Kitchen Aid. I love my Kitchen Aid so much that I named her Shirley. Why name her? Well, she is more like a partner in the kitchen rather than a mere appliance. She whips and mixes like nothing I’ve ever used before. I wanted one for 20 years so the least I could do is name her.
The very first thing I made was whipped cream. It was easy, creamy, light – everything whipped cream should be. Below is a picture of fresh fruit (blackberries and raspberries) and whipped cream. The only thing missing is shaved chocolate on top.
Then Shirley and I made homemade pizza dough. It was easy and delicious. My pepperoni bread never looked or tasted so good.
I love playing around with Shirley. We make a good team. I really don’t know how I managed without her all these years. Everyone who loves to cook needs to have a Shirley in their life. It makes cooking easy and fun. From mashed potatoes to bread and everything in between will be done with ease.
Thanks Tom for Shirley. I love you. Thank you for spoiling me. And Shirley – well it’s obvious how I feel about you.
