Sorry, this is all I have for you today. COOKIES! We are having a cookie and candy buffet at the wedding and I am the baker. I have to bake approximately 1500 cookies in 2 weeks. And wouldn't you know it? My mixer died in the beginning of my first batch yesterday. It groaned, then sighed and died. I think I heard it say...."I can't do this". Traitor.
*to answer the comment below....it was a kitchenaid mixer, the big one! It lasted 4 years. This is the 9th kitchenaid motor I've burned out in 25 years. They only last a lifetime if you use them like a normal person.
