Vintage 12 Speed Sunbeam MixMaster

I’m not a hoarder I just collect a lot. And my husband is my enabler 😉

Any who say hello to my new friend.  A friend that I’ll more than likely treat like your mama’s white couch back in the day with no plastic on it.  DON’T TOUCH!  Who knows I may take it for a spin…

My husband found this the other day for me at a thrift store.  The handle was loose and it was well used by it’s previous owner.  He took it apart to clean, tighten the handle and oil the inside.  Plugged it in and that baby purrred like a kitten.

Still doing research on it and so far it looks like it was made after 1957 and is model 11.  The numbers are so little where it gives the model number and yo girl cant see it.  I can’t tell if it’s an actual number or something else. 

I also have a set of milk glass bowls that fit this mixer.  They’re Glassbake bowls made for Sunbeam.  I picked them up awhile ago on one of my thriftscapades.

These Sunbeam mixers come in other colors as well and would go well in any kitchen.  For those of us that get thrills and chills for vintage cookware that is.

Not sure what it is about me loving cookware older than me?  Guess it’s the durability and longevity that they don’t make anymore 😉

Do you remember these mixers?

It’s an obsession and I know it

I think…I think…I think I know how it started, but I’m not really sure.  I think it started from me picking up pieces from the thrift to photograph my food pictures for this here blog.  Yeah, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it. 

Then I started seeing Milk glass, Pyrex, Corningware and Pinterest. Oh, Pinterest!  Yeah, that’s how I got to this place. I’d love to say that I’ve turned into my mother. I can’t even say I’ve turned into my grandmother. I’ve turned into somebody’s mama that collects vintage stuff! Yeah, that’s it. 

I’m being transparent here so don’t judge me 😉  It started with one itty bitty piece of this stuff.

A itty bitty piece so not the one pictured. Which led to this.

And this.

Before you feel sorry for my family and think they live in neglected conditions. They don’t and they eat pretty good if I say so myself.

Real good.

Collecting the Cornflower Corningware is an obsession indeed, but have you ever cooked in one of these things? They cook AWESOME and the cleanup is even BETTER!!! Not to mention it makes cooking that more enjoyable.

I have an all time favorite song that was out in the early 90’s. My family and friends know the song and every time they hear it I’m sure they think of me.

image

And every time I put this baby on… I sing that song. It’s time for the percolator. It’s time for the percolator….

I’ve turned into somebody’s mama and I likey 😉

Taking my Le Creuset for a test drive on egg shells

Finally had a chance to take this baby for a spin.  Sunday I made game day food and used my Le Creuset stock pot to boil eggs for deviled eggs. 

image

image

There are two things that I’ve always either had a hard time cooking or just cared less.  Well, maybe three…rice, pancakes and boiled eggs.  Some days I boil eggs and they peel with ease and there’s the other days… those days no matter how cold the water is after they’ve boiled, those suckers just won’t peel correctly. 

Well, all while boiling these eggs I was wondering… should I be boiling eggs.in this pot?  The water took some time to boil… will I have trouble peeling them like I did the other day?

To my surprise…

image

These eggs peeled like butta.  After turning the water off I may have waited 5 minutes before running cold water on them.  Not sure if that was the reason they peeled easily after running cold water on them, but I was so excited!  Lame? Maybe, but when you’re in the process of making deviled eggs… and the eggs peel smoothly? I’m good.

If anything changes the next time I boil eggs in this pot I’d be sure to let you know.  However, if I continue to get these results, we’ll leave it at I’m a happy egg boiling mama. 

Before I go let me tease you with our game day food.

image

My kid’s favorite homemade fishsticks.

image

My favorite… deviled eggs.

image

And a few finger poppers. Oh, made my husband’s favorite scalloped potatoes.  Loaded Scalloped Potatoes to be exact and Ice Tea.

image

Are you hungry now?  Did you make any special dishes for game day?

Presto 16-Qt. Pressure Canner & Cooker Review

16Qt Presto Pressure Canner

I’d like to take this time to introduce a new member to our family. Big Mama! Well, that’s what we’ve named her. We purchased The Presto Pressure Canner the other day so that we can, can the harvest from our garden. I never knew that Pressure Cookers came this big. We got the 16Qt one and my husband says that there is one bigger. 

There was also an instruction and recipe book inside. Since this is our first time Canning, this book is going to be our best friend. In the recipe book, there are recipes for canning as well as using the pressure canner as a pressure cooker. I already had a small pressure cooker and I’ve used it to cook Ham Hocks. That was the extent of my pressure cooking skills.  We purchased it at Wal-Mart for $64.88.    

Our very first time using it, we canned string beans & collard greens.  This has been very enjoying for us to be able to preserve our veggies until we’re ready to eat them.  A couple weeks later we canned cucumbers to make pickles.  We’re on a roll!   How about you, do you garden and if you do have you ever canned your harvest?  What has been your experience. 

Disclosure:  We purchased this on our own and this is our personal opinion. 

 

 

 

 

The finished results
