As a result of losing my cooking companion, and life in general which includes three hunting trips, computer issues, kids going back to school, and me finishing my degree, I haven't been cooking much. But now, life is slowing down a little bit and for my birthday my mother in law gave to me Ruby, my new Kitchen Aide mixer (yes, I know it isn't really normal to name an appliance but I couldn't help it. I justify my actions by arguing that people name cars and boats and all kids of things so why not my shiny, new mixer?)
Ruby is RED, hence the name, and I can't wait to start making some of the recipes I having pinning on Pinterest. (If you haven't checked Pinterest out yet please go take a peak at my boards. It's a virtual pin board for all great things you love and slightly addicting!) Below is a picture I took when Ruby came out of the box and arrived at her new home on my counter top.
