Big Red- In the House!

Yes, I'm a total dork.  I am sooooo excited I got to bring home "Big Red" (my new Red Kitchenaid Stand Mixer) this weekend. This baby was a wedding gift from my Aunt Kathy and Uncle Tres and I spent the weekend mixing and baking away. I made whole wheat pizza crust (love that dough hook attachment!) We are gonna whip up a pizza this week and throw it on the grill- can't wait. Then I moved on to Paula's Chicken Salad. Ok, so I didn't use the mixer on this one, but its too yummy not to mention. Then it was back to Big Red for a batch of yummy Blueberry Walnut Bran Muffins. Yum-o. Love this recipe from cute little Cookie over at Workout then Cook. She seriously has 138 muffin recipes on her blog. 138! Thats crazy! I will definitely be trying her PB&J Muffins, Tomato Feta Muffins, & Lemon Poppyseed Muffins. Thanks for sharing so many great recipes Cookie. Check out her site for the yummy Blueberry Walnut Bran Muffins recipe and see below for Paula's Chicken Salad. (BTW, I'm not sure who Paula is, but my mom gave me this recipe and thats what its called...haha!)

Happy Tuesday Chickies!
