Today I'm thankful for... my KitchenAid mixer. 1919 was the year that this historical appliance company made its mark in history. Over the next several decades this company continued to grow and found itself on many kitchen counters across America.
So what exactly was it that inspired this thankful post? Well, just like the mission of this silly little blog, I was trying to create a modern version of a traditional classic.
For me, apple cider is a must in the Fall months. I anxiously bought a gallon of the good stuff as soon as I saw it in the grocery store a week or so ago. As much as I love opening my refrigerator and seeing this big jug of goodness, I've asked myself several times, "how am I ever going to drink all of this!" My bright idea: bake with it! This led to a vast search on the internet for recipes that called for apple cider. I combined a few recipes together, crossed my fingers, and made a delicious batch of Apple Cider Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting.
