Well I can’t tell you how excited I was to find out that QVC was going to send me one for review on my blog.QVC  is not just an infomercial on television. Which is honestly what I use to think they were.

My daughter would sit for hours watching infomercials when she was little.It use to crack us up,but I never bought anything.Ever! Well QVC is not just an infomercial channel. It is a huge company with a well thought out website that sells just about everything you can think of.

So as you are starting to think of what took get your Mother for her special day this year,remember to keep QVC in mind.They made this a very memorable Mother’s Day for me and you can do the same for your loved one.

This is my dream come true! The KitchenAid  Deluxe Edition 5qt 325 Watt 10 Speed Tilt Head Stand Mixer.  I received mine in the color Expresso,which I think would match any decor I ever have.Which is good since I plan on keeping this baby for a very long time.

 

If you’re wife or Mom loves to cook,then I promise you that she would love this beautiful mixer.It truly is a work of art in my opinion. It has a high gloss enamel paint job that even impressed my husband. Plus you could already have Christmas lined up by buying more attachments.They even have one that turns it into an ice-cream machine! My kids really want to get that one .

The mixer I received came with 4 attachments.

-dough hook

-wire whip

-flat beater

-flex head beater(it scrapes the bowl as it mixes)

So any Mom would be in Heaven with all the things you can make and create . The first thing I decided to make was Loaded Bake Potato Soup. Dad’s you could really impress the wife with a fancy,easy to make home cooked meal for Mother’s Day. I will show you how in a step by step recipe below.

6 russet potatoes peeled and chopped

After the potatoes are soft drain all the water off and place the potatoes and the sautéed onions and garlic in the KitchenAid mixing bowl.If you don’t happen to have a mixer you can mash them by hand.

As you blend the potatoes,onion,and garlic together slowly add in the 1/2 cup of heavy whipping cream.

After the mixture is creamy with very little lumps,pour it back into the big soup pot you boiled the potatoes in and add the milk and chicken broth.

At this point mixture will be lumpy. Cook soup for 30 minutes stirring occasionally on medium heat. When soup is done it should be really creamy with almost no lumps.
