Thought I would find this thread so I could say nice things about Lucille.
This passed weekend Kathleen and some friends made pirogies, a lot of them, 271 of them. I was doing calculus.
They needed dough made and I had mentioned to Kathleen she could use her new hand mixer with the dough hooks (new KA one, the 7 speed spendy model). She said they were going to need more dough than that and at some point asked if I could take a break from calculus and mix them up dough.
I look at the recipe and it called for 4.5 cups of flour, which is a little light for Lucille but ok. Oh no, they wanted a triple recipe. She is rated at 14 cups and I put 13.5 in. Mixed it like a champ. I did start slow though, the bowl was pretty full, with the 6 cups of sour cream that the recipe calls for as well.
The next day it was just a double recipe and it almost seemed sad to have that little bit of flour in there.
