It's Tuesday, and I've been looking forward to this cake for a long time and even dreamed about it last night, but alas, I didn't make it(sorry Mary Ann!). I'm happy to report that my little one willingly ate all the blueberries I bought for it. I hope to make it soon. For excuses, well, let's just say my counters are coming next week (early I hope) and as soon as they appear everything else will slide into place- including that sink I've been missing like crazy- and I will have a kitchen again.
I do have a new gadget I'm excited about, though I haven't tried it yet. This baby was on clearance at Kohl's for $101.99 during the morning special. I went to Bed Bath and Beyond, had them price match (did you know they did that?), used a 20 percent off coupon, and even got a $20 rebate, bringing this pretty down to less than $70 after tax. Now I'm itching to make some pastry, some pesto, or anything. I've been using a Cuisinart (my Mom's) and wanted to keep with that brand, but I figured with the price I couldn't resist. Plus, I love my KitchenAid stand mixer so much I thought I couldn't go wrong with the brand. Do you have a preference or experience with both? Let me know! Stop by Thursday for Ina's Easy Sticky Buns and next Tuesday for Fresh Ginger and Chocolate Gingerbread (maybe from my own kitchen?)
