    My Kitchen Aid

    I inherited my mother's Kitchen Aid she bought around 1977. It was your typical 350a or something liks that everyone owned at the time.

    I'm back after 3 year absence!

    It's been a long time since I've been here. Miss all great advise and friendly people. So much has happened since I was last here. Some good (my soulmate and I got married) and some bad (mother in law passed away and doc's briefly thought I had cancer). I can't wait to jump back in and talk to...
