It's a well known fact that guys occasionally give their significant others gifts that they really want for themselves. Prime examples include big screen TVs or stainless steel BBQ grills. Now unless your gf lives under a rock, she's obviously going to point out your ulterior motive and demand another gift, probably something from Tiffany as punishment. When it comes to presents for the gf, rarely do guys get to have one's cake and eat it too. As luck would have it, when my gf requested a KitchenAid stand mixer for her birthday it was seemingly a win-win situation for me. Given that she has an account on allrecipes.com, where users share recipes and post pictures of their cooking, and her inclination for baking sweets I figured my sweet tooth would be satisfied with an abundance of chocolate chip cookies, frosted cupcakes, triple chocolate mousse cakes, and oreo-crumb cheesecakes. With the assistance of a high-end, 10 speed, 120 volt beauty of a mixer, who wouldn't take advantage and churn out desserts by the boatload. As it turns out, the stand mixer has sat idle on the kitchen counter for the majority of its life and my sweet tooth remains unsatisfied.
