Dream Come True!!!

Before I get to the real reason of this post, I have to give you a back ground story first :)

Like most of the women I know, my mom is the best cook I know.  Even when I copy and do everything the same as her recipes, it still isn't quite the same.  That being said I always like to use the same things my mom uses.  My mom has a really old mixer that she has had forever.  It makes the best rolls, cookies, you name it, it was the best.  So I always told my mom that when I grew up/got married that I wanted that mixer.  My heart broke a bit the day she told me they don't even make it anymore!

Well, years have passed since that moment and I got over it.  I figured I'd never have it and I would move on in life with my adorable cute red kitchen aid.  But still....while using said kitchen aid I would still day dream about that old mixer.   Then the thought came to me!  Hello?!  Ebay!!!!  And so the search began.  A few months back I found THE mixer!!  I watched it for a few days and when it came down to crunch time I was ready!  I even had my computer open, signed in, and on the bidding page for hours before just so I would be ready.  I went to put in my final big and guess what?!  I LOST :(  Leaving me signed in on the same page made it so when I finally had some activity on the page, I had to log back in losing the sale.  I was devastated.  Losing something makes you realize how much you really really want it.

Well, I would occasionally check here and there thinking I had lost my chance forever when a few months ago THERE IT WAS!!!  And cheaper than the other one!  This time I was NOT going to lose!  I was out of town during the bidding process so I had my wonderful friend Shauna do my bidding for me and she is a good luck charm!  I WON!!  And I was ecstatic!  Finally after waiting for it to ship it has arrived, in all its glory!  It needs a good scrub down but I love it all the same.  Here it is!
The Braun K32 Mixer
I can't decide what to make first!!  Any suggestions?  Do you have anything like your mothers that you just HAD to have?

Glad I could help! I think because I'm the reason you got it, I should get some of whatever you make first. :)

that is so funny! Although, my mom has a bosch mixer that I REALLY want, and I completely agree with you about making something just like your mom and it NEVER turns out the same!...HATE that!

Ems, next time use auctionsniper.com It does the bidding for you. Can't wait to try all the yummy food you're going to start making in your mixer.

You are seriously hilarious--I'm glad you finally got it and I love that it still has the manual!

Niederfam said...

I'm so happy for you and YES mom's did look exactly like that, still does. Here's to hoping yours will last just like hers!!!! ;) YAY Ebay.

Woo hoo! You got it! Um, make mom's chocolate chip cookies. That's my vote!

That's funny, because that's how I felt about my mom's mixer! She had a Bosch, though, so it wasn't so hard to find. :) Congratulations on your new purchase! I agree with Nicole--your mom's chocolate chip cookies are hard to beat!!!!!
