My new Kitchen Aid stand mixer!

In the fall I purchased my first ever Kitchen Aid stand mixer – in candy apple red, to be specific! It has been a welcomed addition to my kitchen appliances, and it feels like i’ve always had it. Over the past few months I’ve made many of my favourite recipes and the mixer made my kitchen time that much faster and less laborious.

I bought the Architect model with the glass bowl. Its beautiful.

One of the first things I made was a batch of pumpkin cupcakes with chai frosting, and later that same weekend I made a lattice crust apple pie. I was having a good weekend, needless to say!

Day 1 with the Kitchen Aid resulted in pumpkin cupcakes with chai spice frosting.

First lattice crust apple pie - from scratch!

My first lattice crust apple pie – thanks to the help of my new Kitchen Aid.

I was quite proud of this pie. I recall smiling like this when I was little and got to help in the kitchen! The pie went over well at dinner, and I can’t wait to make the next one.

The mixer was a total splurge, to be honest, but I had worked really hard in the months leading up to it and felt it was a long overdue reward. I have wanted one of these mixers for YEARS! It was just time.

I just felt I had to share my fabulous new purchase with you all.

Happy baking!
