Carey Jones took first place with her Asparagus and Fava Leaf Salad with Minted Lemon Vinaigrette -- sounds delish and I can’t wait to taste it while it's featured at Absinthe. While I didn’t make it onto Executive Chef Jamie Lauren’s menu, I do still go home with my very own KitchenAid Artisan Series Stand Mixer! Gahhh!!!! I am so stoked! So many times I've pet these longingly at The Cellar in Macy's. I feel like my life as a home cook is now complete. Thank you thank you thank you, 7x7 and wonderful judges Linda Carucci, Sara Deseran, and Jamie Lauren! Please send me your address. I want to bake you something. KitchenAid Stand Mixer, you sexy sleek beast, come to momma!
