I’ve been wanting a KitchenAid Stand Mixer for the longest time. Chris promised I can have one when we moved to our new house. And he’s a man of his word. (Thank you sweetie! :)) I found a really good deal at Costco last week and picked one up. I finally broke it in today and made a batch of honey meyer lemon olive oil muffins. It took less than five minutes to mix once all the ingredients are in there. I can’t believe I went on this long without this mixer! It’s totally worth it and my favorite appliance in the kitchen right now. I look forward to making more goodies soon!
This sauce was so tasty in my pasta. I was a bit worried that it wouldn’t because of the texture of the walnuts in this sauce. But I blended extra long in my food processor so the texture of the nuts is less obvious in the sauce. It would be an excellent spread in any sandwiches (Panini comes to mind). Or an alternative to tomato sauce on pizzas.
I had some basil in the fridge that didn’t look like it’ll last another day so I decided to make some pesto with it. I like mine a more loose consistency. When it’s too thick, it looks unappetizing (in my opinion).
