typically it's around this time of the year, when my mixer gets promoted from cabinet space to kitchen counter real estate. everytime i get it down, i think to myself that i should leave it out year round because i really like the way it looks....but, by the time that the end of the holiday season rolls around, i remember why it is that it's main home is in a cabinet. it just takes up too much space.
i suppose i should have cleaned her up a bit before her photo shoot but, her she is, flour covered and in all her glory. today she helped me make banana bread. to be honest, i'm not the best banana bread baker but, ming put in a request so i decided to give it a try. i used a *light* receipe that i don't think i've ever tried before so we'll see how it turns out.
in other kitchen related news, since i had my camera out, i also snapped a pic of my keurig coffee maker that i'm always talking about. if you love or even just like coffee, this machine is for you! it makes indivual cups of coffee, tea and hot chocoloate in less than 60 seconds.
**it was light until i added walnuts and chocolate chips =)
