Lamp Baked

Memory Lane No Comments »

Remember when we were kids and all the cool toys were powered by light bulbs? Take the Light Bright, for example… I could have played with that thing forever!!

While strolling through a thrift store the other day I came across this little gem; the Easy Bake oven. It brought me back to a simpler time. A time when Megan and I would sit around the kitchen table for hours waiting for a single-serving brownie to turn into a somewhat-warm “solid” state. Then eat it with spoons because our definition of “baked” was rather lenient after waiting so long. I wonder if these things are still as popular as they once were, especially given our current obsession with CFLs as a means of reducing carbon emissions…

Happy Holidays!

KitchenAid Owner… For a Week

Memory Lane, Random Thoughts 1 Comment »

KitchenAid MixerYes, I was a proud owner of a KitchenAid stand mixer – for just over a week!  It was only with a heavy heart that I returned the mixer back to Costco tonight after giving it a week to “break in”.  Something had to be wrong with the motor, because it sounded awful and was so loud I couldn’t use it past quiet hours for fear of upsetting the neighbors.

Here’s my quick review on the stand mixer available at Costco:

+ 475 watts of pure mixing power… ooooh yeeeeaaah!
- Noisy as all get out… maybe just a defective one?
+ Professional Lift model… easy to use!
- You have to detach the beater to get the bowl out… not as easy as the tilt models.
+ Onyx Black finish… perfect for my taste!
- The included digital timer was white… not Onyx Black
+ TONS of add-on attachments available… from pasta to ice-cream makers!

In conclusion: I don’t think I’m ready for a professional-grade mixer yet.  It was fun owning one for a week, despite the noisy defect, but I’ll have to stick to my $8 SunBeam electric hand mixer for now.

Bicycle built for one

New HelmetI took my bike into the shop today to have it tuned up… and to get a front wheel for it.  I’m not really good with the whole unicycle thing.

I haven’t ridden my bike since, well, the front wheel was stollen almost two years ago.  Needless to say I cannot WAIT.  They should have it all ready to go on Monday.  Now if only this crazy nice weather would stick around for a few more days…

I’m trying hard to be patient, but in the mean time check out my spiffy new helmet!  ;-)
