  1. I am generally a make-do-with-what-I-have kinda girl and hate having to store more STUFF.  However…  it sure would be nice to not have to ladle hot soup into my blender.  Maybe it’s time for an immersion blender.

    I have my grandma’s Kitchen Aid mixer.  My husband took it apart one time to clean it and noticed the manufacture date inside—1975.  Still going strong!  I use it to make tortillas every week!

    1. My immersion blender is a godsend!!

      I love that you have your grandma’s mixer! I know my aunt used my nana’s for years until she broke it trying to mix frozen butter. Are we supposed to take them apart to clean them?!
