That is awesome about your husband's bread-making skills and conversion!

So far I have used my KA every single day this week, sometimes a few times a day. I made another batch of baguettes to take with me as I leave Sunday for two weeks to visit my family. It is necessary to have something that resembles bread!! :lol:

Back to the KA - it has been one of my most valuable and treasured purchases I have ever made. This sounds silly but it is almost my friend, just like my books. :P

My husband is doing a dietary trial for 6 months because he has issues that resemble a gluten problem and his testing so far has come up negative. He does have a double DQ-1 gene, which I take is gluten sensitivity. He told me he would have to find good bread to eat or he wouldn't make it. Such a drama queen! :P The conversion was not totally easy!

To my amazement, he started making bread from scratch and it came out pretty darn good for someone who never made bread before.

He uses the KA and loves the thing. I come home from work, as I get home later than he does, and can smell fresh bread when I enter. He's a keeper! :D

I am hoping he remains gluten-free forever because I hated wasting good food money on gluten products. He is asymptomatic GI-wise so the difference is not extremely dramatic, like you yourself know well. When he starts to put on weight, I will have validation he has a problem, not to mention his low vitamin levels and on again/off again anemia problems. I understand the frustration of those who have a tough time pin pointing the problem exactly! He is finding the diet not so bad after a couple of months into it and is surprised at how much is available for Celiacs. He didn't notice this so much when it was just me eating gluten-free but he's paying attention now. The best part is he is getting into cooking with me and we make a great team. I wish I had the capitol to start a totally gluten-free restaurant!

:lol: I feel the same way. You cannot go wrong with the Kitchen Aid mixer. My husband uses it to make gluten-free bread with the dough hook and he's now a convert. If you're doing any "from scratch" cooking, it's a must!

I could write this exact same post!!!

In fact, the KA MIXER was HIS when we met. :)

I fell in love with him AND his KA Stand mixer :)

He is the bread maker.

I do all the rest.
