Artisan Bread, Autumn and KitchenAid #SavorTheSavings

Fresh Bread in the Rural Mom Kitchen
We’re relishing in the delightful flavors of fall! Presented by Mami Innovative Media, this is a sponsored

Pumpkin soup, cinnamon apples, beef barley stew and fresh artisan bread – when the brisk winds kick up the leaves in my fields, these are the savory tastes of autumn I crave.

Despite my love of homemade artisan breads, pizza crusts and fresh rolls, I balked when my husband first suggested purchasing a KitchenAid mixer.  As a sustainable living-hearty gal, I mean really, what could that machine do that I couldn’t accomplish by hand?

Turns out, making the perfect dough is what that dag-nabbit machine could do faster than I ever dreamed possible.  In fact, it makes all my baking endeavors a literal breeze… it even mixes bourbon into my holiday fudge with ease (and if you’ve ever tried doing that by hand, you will totally get how much I appreciate this sturdy, handy, trusty tool in my kitchen.)

Now, I had to admit to my rural hubby that this was, indeed, one of his more brilliant kitchen gadget purchases.  Hard to argue with a lovely machine that helps you put bread on the table faster, giving you more time to savor each morsel and sop up every stitch of soup on a cool autumn day.

    Your mixer sounds really handy! I want a Kitchen Aid dishwasher when we replace ours next.

      I didn’t even realize that KitchenAid made so many great appliances. We’ll be fitting a new home soon and I’ll definitely be checking those out, too!

    I want a kitchen aid mixer too. They are so sturdy and last so much longer than the cheap ones.

      I have to say, the version we chose is impressive. Have the feeling we’ll be handing it down someday!

    This bread looks so delicious. It reminds me of when we used to have fresh bread delivered warm from the bakery when I lived in Spain. There is nothing like it.

      Oh goodness, I would love that! Would also love to hear more about your memories from Spain. A country that’s high on my list of places to visit!
