Hello Everyone! Meet Imogen, my kitchen assistant

Print  Friendly and PDF
Hey Everyone, I have a new assistant in the kitchen named Imogen(E-Mo-Juhn). With her sturdy arms and savvy ways, she is here to make mixing and kneading a breeze! She comes in a sexy package,an alluring shade of purple that gives my kitchen the much needed face-lift. Why did I choose her? Purple is the gorgeous lovechild of vibrant red and cool blue. Well, Purple screams royalty!And that wasn't the reason why I chose it. Arrrgh! I really don't have an exact reason why I chose this color. I mean, I had to choose one and this color seemed as good as any. Yeah,they all are good and at par with one another! That was the problem.

While I am "unable" to pinpoint why I chose this shade, I can with (LoL) "somewhat-certainty" tell you why I didn't choose the ones that I came this "--> <-- " close to choosing. Okay, serious considerations were given to Candy Apple Red(which happens to be my favorite color) but its too common, found in many many kitchens. Black(my second favorite color), but that wouldn't co-exist or pop in my kitchen. Raspberry Ice, too girly and so gorgeous but my son may not want it after I kick the bucket!Silver Metallic, to match with all the other stainless steel appliances in my kitchen but I want Imo to not blend but hold her own. Gloss Cinnamon, so warm and reminds one of fragrant freshly baked Cinnamon Apple pies but it wasn't a standout..After going back and forth like a gazillion times I finally decided on Boysenberry.

Umm, this is not a brag post although Kitchen-aid Mixers deserve that and more. But I am so happy with this new addition to my kitchen. She and I have just started a sweet/savory journey and I see plenty of breads, cakes and bakes in the future.




Kitchen-aid in Aqua Sky from Martha Stewart's collection(a possible successor, if something does happen to Imo, which is highly unlikely!) I know, I know. I am confused with what I want next. So many gorgeous colors and its so easy to get befuddled!
Enjoy!

  4. What a lovely color! I did not know it existed in this boysenberry color. I saw the raspberry ice and love it but this one is just as pretty. Great choice! Have a great weekend!

  6. Dear Lassie
    I was deeply engrossed reading about your beautiful Kitchen assistant until I came to know, that you were talking about a machine..how disappointing. Jokes apart, your assistant is very pretty.
    By the way "don't have an exact reason" is a good reason to do some thing you want to do..exact reasons are hypothetical really...there is no such thing for people who think through diversity and choices.
    One thing I am sure,( and the way you have analysed the color preference )when you go out on shopping with my wife in Delhi, you will have good company....while I will be grinding my teeth (whatever is left) sitting at the parking lot ...
    Jokes apart, I wish I get a machine like this in India.
    I am sure it is a great assistant and that means great recipes from you..
    Have a nice weekend and take care.

  15. dint u like the lemon yellow??? well actually im a sucker for anything yellow and hence the question :)
    Somehow in the UK kitchenaid is not that popular and all the chefs, except a few, use the kenwood chef. I love everything about the chef except that the mixing bowl doesnt have a handle to hold it..like the kitchenaid.
    purple is my second fav colour so yes girl u chose well :)

  18. So gorgeous! Definitely a difficult choice- I went back and forth between the mint green ( I was in a mint green mood), white ( because most of my other appliances are white) and finally my husband surprised me with the silver one which was what I wanted inside all along! Now your purple beauty is tempting me!
