Did you know it has been in the 70's here?! And one night this week it is due to get into the 40's?? Ummm, YES please! It is no secret I LOVE fall, and I love this weather. On cooler days, I especially love to come inside and bake for my family. I love to bake about as much as I love fall and I do admit to baking year round. However, there is something so wonderful about baking in the fall. From pound cake, to pumpkin squares, I love it all.
When I bake I always bake from scratch as I find it is great to be able to control what goes into my food. I also think it is easy! Especially when you have a great mixer. Behold:
This is my new baby. I have had my eye on a kitchenaid stand mixer for what seems to be forever, but with a price tag of over $300, I will have to wait. However, when CSN contacted me to do another review for them, I was thrilled to be able to try out the Cuisinart 7 speed mixer. Now the mixer I had before had recently broken down and I needed a new one. My old one had no power and only one speed and was impossible to mix things like butter cream icing and egg whites.
Not anymore! This mixer can do it ALL! It is so powerful and can honestly handle anything including thick dough. My only complaint is that it is so robust (for a tiny little person like myself) that my arm hurts after awhile from holding it. Ha! Not to bad of a complaint!
I had to test it out right away and I made lemon pound cake! When I made the lemon butter cream for it, I have never been more proud of an appliance. For the first time ever ( I have been perfecting my butter cream recipe for ages) my icing came out perfect and thick. I am in love y'all!
I am so happy with it that I am rethinking needing a stand mixer at all! Well okay, maybe I still want one someday...

The fine print:
Although the mixer I reviewed was supplied by CSN, the opinions of said mixer are my own. It is also important to note, that although CSN sponsored this review, they are not sponsoring the giveaway (kitchenaid mixer) as that is being supplied by a third party and will ship directly to you if you win! Good luck!
