i'm not exaggerating when i say that, one by one, the household items we registered for and received as wedding gifts seven years ago are slowly being phased out, and replaced by old stuff that we're picking up along the way. we've had this mixer for a few months now, and while i'll never get rid of my kitchenaid stand mixer, this new friend in the kitchen is getting a lot of play. meet our 1950's sunbeam mixmaster.
not so great when it comes to making bread doughs, but can cream together butter and sugar like nobody's business. plus, no more fighting over who gets to lick the beater? this mama is sold.
we've been making these (with double the oatmeal and no chocolate chips) and these in their original form. and blueberry muffins, too. yes, it's a good thing this mixer was built to last--we're putting it to the test!
