It would be hard to make this recipe without my reliable Kitchen Aid mixer. I have been using it nonstop since my husband bought it for me for Christmas three years ago! I’m not one to have hundreds of tools for the kitchen; I love simplicity. However, this is one kitchen gadget that I simply would not want to do without.
