Everyone has that one object that they simply cannot live without. Maybe it's a dress. Or maybe it's a book. Perhaps it's a makeup product or that one CD you could listen to over and over again.
Mine is my Kitchenaid mixer.
Her name is Scarlett. And, yes. You are correct. She was named after the Gone With The Wind character.
We've been together for almost 3 years, and I honestly don't know how I survived without her for the majority of my life.
You see, I've had other mixers. There was my mother's hand mixer that I used until I moved out. Then I got my own hand mixer, and I was thrilled. I remember thinking how wonderful it was. I baked my fair share of food with them, but neither one of them can compete with Scarlett.
Whether we're whipping up a quick batch of cookies or preparing a menu to feed a party, she's got it covered with her muscle, prowess, and beauty.
We're a good team, Scarlett and I. Sometimes we hang out in the kitchen for hours just baking and listening to Beyonce.
I'm sure you'll see Scarlett much more in my posts to follow, and I hope you come to love her just as much as I have.
Now if you'll excuse me, Scarlett and I have some baking to do.
