I am planning on purchasing a new mixer. Should I buy a Bosch Mixer or a Kitchen Aid Mixer?

It depends on what you are going to use it for. If you are planning to make 5 loaves of Whole Wheat Bread for your family every week, a Bosch is really the only choice. A Kitchen Aid Mixer doesn’t have the motor for that kind of use. However, the bowl of the Bosch Mixer is quite large and has a hard time mixing recipes that are smaller, like these Quick and Easy Breadsticks. This recipe would need to be doubled if you are making it in a Bosch.

If you are only planning to use your mixer to make small batches of bread once in a while, and will be making a lot of cakes, cookies, whipping cream etc…the Kitchen Aid Mixer will not disappoint.

Do you take your own pictures and if so, what kind of camera do you have?

I do all of my own photography using a Canon Rebel  t2i.

Do you mind if I Pin your recipes on Pinterest?

Please feel free to pin any and all of the recipes you find on my site. You can also follow me on Pinterest by clicking here.

Can I share your recipes and pictures on my blog or website?

I would love for you to share these recipes and pictures with your readers, but certainly expect to be credited with a link back to my site.

Would you please submit some of your recipes to my website, or newsletter?

While I would love to, and appreciate you taking the time to ask, there are just not enough hours in the day to fill this type of request. If you would like to share these recipes and pictures with your readers please feel free to do so, just remember to link back to me, please.

Where do you find the recipes you post on your site?

Some are recipes passed on to me from friends or family. Others I find in magazines, cookbooks or online. Many are my own creation.

I have a food blog, can you give me some advice on how to make it great?

Here are some basic tips for you.

1. Post recipes that are fabulous, don’t waste your readers time by reviewing recipes that don’t turn out well.
2. Learn a little bit about food photography and how to make your food look appetizing.
3. Just be yourself. 🙂 Write the content as if you were conversing with your sister or good friend.
4. Use social media to help promote your posts. Pinterest and Facebook have worked best for me. I’ve opted not to use Twitter, mostly because of time constraints and I don’t seem to have many readers who use it.
