I Have Seen the Face of God

and it is 70s green and shiny and looks like this:

well not exactly (we have a stainless bowl) but we inherited this semi-vintage kitchen aid standing mixer from the rev’s grandmother in january and, until last night, it had been languishing on a bottom shelf, screaming its potential at me but going unheard.  then, i got a birthday cake request from a friend & coworker for a pound cake.  i’ve never made one from scratch before.  but betty crocker’s recipes have never let me down and i had the supplies, so away we went.  after reading over the recipe it was clear that the standing mixer was going to be crucial to get the right consistency.  i brought it out, wiped it down and got to work.  and it was SO MUCH FUN.  i even took a video of it mixing on my cell phone (unfortunately not transferable to wordpress).  he’s back on the bottom shelf, but definitely no longer going unheard.  i have plans.
