This week's Photohunt is Electric.
Hmmm... lots of possibilities. Electric appliance came to mind for me. Everyday - we use many electric appliances. I am old enough to remember the days when our kitchens were not fully electric. Remember making coffee on the stove with a coffee percolator. It was a big move when we got our first drip coffee maker. Now I have come full circle and occasionally use a stove espresso maker.
What about can openers? I still use the manual one - not the electric can opener although my mother loved it when they came out with it.
One kitchen keepsake that I have is an rotary egg beater pictured above. I learned to cook using this beater. I used it mainly for beating eggs and cream. The one killer item I made with it was Angel Food Cake. Yes - you can beat a dozen egg whites with manual rotary. I think they come out even higher than the electric one.
I don't have a stand up electric mixer (aka Kitchen Aid). This is my second electric hand beater. My first one finally died after 25 years of faithful service.
