my new kitchenaid...finally!!!

On Saturday Aaron and I decided to go to Bed Bath & Beyond just to look at mixers. We've been married for almost 7 months now, and I think we've been wanting to get one of these for about 9 months, sooo... we went to the one in Provo and took our Bed Bath & Beyond coupon that expired August 25, 2008 (which, we were told, is valid until January 26, 2009!). We go in and see these really gross, ugly white-on-white Kitchenaid mixers. We're like, what the heck, why don't they have just the normal white one?! So we thought we'd try the Bed Bath & Beyond in American Fork, and thank goodness, they had one normal white one left! We were feeling rrrrreally lucky so we snatched it up and bought it right away. And I just have to say, after gift cards still left over from our wedding, the 20% off coupon, and a $30 rebate, the whole thing only cost us $71.19!!!!!!!!!!!!! Another bargain!


Aaron and I made rolls on Sunday with our new mixer. It was Aaron's idea so he was the one in charge and I was the assistant. I don't really like being the assistant though, so hopefully Aaron isn't the head chef EVERY time we use our mixer. I can see this causing some conflict/control issues! (jk) But the rolls turned out pretty good...a little dense but we're still trying to figure things out. :)

  1. woohoo!! I love my kitchenaid - Philip asked for it for HIS birthday but it was really just for me. I don't think he's ever used it....(it's okay though, cause I asked for a vaccuum for my birthday and he's always the one that vaccuums).

    Did your rolls have milk in them? If they did, use water instead with like 2 TB of powdered milk. Helps them be a little bit more fluffy. It seriously works! Good luck making all sorts of awesome things!

  2. Didn't you guys get one of those at Thanksgiving? Did you end up taking it back? This one looks really nice. :-)

  3. Those things are great. We got one for our wedding and we have only used it to make cookies, probably cause that is Nate's favorite food. I think we need to branch out a little. :)

  8. Whitney, just found your blog on Kendra's and I am excited! The mixer look like a lot of fun. Tomorrow I have decided to make cinnamon rolls and I am pretty sure a kitchenaid would come in very handy!

  10. Whit, I know the love of a kitchenaid too! My dad plays these online games, gets points, and then months (and tons of games later) can get a FREE kitchenaid in the mail. I know, it's a bit ridiculous, but I got a beautiful piece of equipment out of it! Mine is white too and much loved :)
