Weekly Photo Challenge: New

A few new tools for my kitchen!

I’m so excited to finally be the proud owner of a Red KitchenAid Mixer! I have wanted one of these for so very long, and I finally took the plunge, waited for the sale, and bought one!

I’m so glad I did! I love it!

While I was at it, I also thought it might be a good time to update the old muffin pan  (I really should have taken a picture of the old one, it was in really bad shape), and buy a good quality, new one. I did a little research, and read that the Williams Sonoma brand was one of the best around, so again….I took the plunge.

What a fantastic decision this turned out to be! Who knew that good quality cookware could make such a difference, and also has an effect on the end product?

Now I know.

Well, I am one happy person with my new toys, and I’m looking forward to many new adventures in cooking and baking this year!

 

Are you looking for something “new” to do in 2015 on your blog?

Consider the Weekly Photo Challenge.

It’s fun, interesting, and often times challenging.  You don’t have to be a pro, (at least I hope you don’t, because I certainly am not), and there aren’t any judges. So come on, give it a try, and try something new!

Thankful Thursday: A Gift baked, stirred, eaten

A Gift baked…stirred…eaten…

1. Baked – fresh baked bread, straight from the oven goodness!

2. Stirred – the ocean waters on a beautiful, summer day

3. Eaten – all by herself! A chocolate ice cream cone from Dairy Queen!

These are just a few of the many things that I am thankful for.

What are you thankful for?

Will you join me in looking for these gifts and sharing them with others?

We pray for the big things and forget to give thanks for the ordinary, small (and yet really not small) gifts.
