My dear Anthony surprised me with one heck of a Christmas present this year. On Christmas morn I tore open a huge box and inside was a Kitchenaid mixer of my very own! To be fair my pal Tori suggested it to him via a secret Facebook message I knew nothing about. I will give him credit where credit is due though, he did select the perfect color for me; Martha Stewart blue. It's amazing and I feel like my life is more complete now. I decided to break it in on New Years Eve. Since we were staying in I thought we deserved a special treat; perhaps a from scratch chocolate cake with delectable chocolate and cinnamon frosting. It was a tasty smash hit! And very easy to make with the help of my new kitchen sidekick. I predict a 2010 filled with home baked delectable delicacies.
