Favorite Things – Day 5 aka THE LAST DAY!


Happy Friday everyone!

I hope you enjoyed learning about some of my favorite things that I use in the kitchen. This next thing is my MOST favorite thing! It’s like my kitchen security blanket. When I can’t find it, I panic. I absolutely love this cool tool that just came out earlier this year.

Metro Design Beater Blade for 5-Quart KitchenAid Tilt-Head Mixers

I am also going to admit that I’m on my second beater blade. I use this so much that I’ve broken two of them. I REALLLY WISH the Beater Blade maker people would make one using metal instead of plastic. Not that the plastic isn’t very thick and sturdy, I just use it so much! The part that always cracks on me is the part that connects to the KA mixer.

It is so wonderful not to have to stop the mixer and scrape the bowl, stop and scrap, stop and scrap. And I SWEAR it makes my buttercream more fluffy. One time I misplaced it and had to use my normal beater from the KA mixer for a batch of buttercream and it just wasn’t as light and fluffy as I prefer.

I joke that if we ever have to evacuate because of a fire (again), I am grabbing my beater blade (and KA mixer but that’s a given, right?).

So my friends, I want to share the love with ya’ll and give you one of these to try. And if you already have one, then enter to give it to a friend and pass on the love to someone else.

Oh Beater Blade…. my heart beats for you….

LOL ok I’ll stop now. HA

  8. I'm not sure I can pick what my one favorite thing to bake would be. Just this past weekend my girlfriends and I made homemade cinnamon rolls (Pioneer Woman version) so I guess right now I love making cinnamon rolls. They sort of seem to be a winter/Christmas/Holiday staple.

    Beater blades are the greatest invention ever. If I win I am going to give this to my friend who has been dying for one. 🙂

  9. I love to make chocolate chip cookies, they're so easy and I love it when the smell starts making its way around the house. The boys then start circling asking when they'll be ready.

    Like making cupcakes too but sometimes think these should be left to the professionals!

  10. I think cream cheese brownies are my baking weakness.
