recently i was asked what my best wedding gift was. well of course the very best gift of all was the overwhelming love, support and good intention of all our close friends and family. as far as material things, i’d have to say that this mixer has certainly changed the way we eat around here. josh makes us fresh pasta every time we have bolognese or pesto…he did so well on his first try and it just keeps on getting better. the days of buying fresh pasta are long gone. as far as the color goes we were going to get a funky mint color or red but then realized we tend to go crazy with our wall color so it was best to keep it neutral. anyone ever try making pasta at home?
