Ok, forgive this stupid question!  But, I got a KitchenAid stand mixer for Christmas.  I've wanted one forever, and I'm so excited to finally have one.  It's gorgeous - red, just what I wanted!

But, the thing is, I don't know what to do with it!  I need some recipes that would use one.  Help me learn how to use it.

Hi,
now you need the ice cream bowl (special bowl that you put in the freezer for 15 hours adn then use with the mixer to make your own ice cream) and pasta maker attachment!!! As you can see I'll help you gain weight ;)

I use my mixer for anything dough related - rolls, pizza dough, etc. and for anything baking related where i'd have to mix in butter (cookies for example) or for whipped cream.

There are many more uses, but I'm really into dessert!

I've wanted to pasta maker attachment forever! We have the meat grinder one.

It's a gorgeous gift, Dotty, and you will LOVE it. Use it for EVERYTHING. Whipped cream, meringues, cookies, cakes, breads (the dough hook is fabulous). Even if the recipe simply says "stir X, Y, and Z together" toss it into your mixer and use the "stir" setting.

You can always start with the basic chocolate chip cookie. I have a banana bread recipe that falls into the "stir only" catagory and the mixer cut my prep time in half. My lastest thing has been bread, though. I never made it before and I might never learn to knead, thanks to this. I think cookies are the best place to start... it's like the indoctrination ritual for stand-mixers. You will never mix batter by hand again.

ENJOY! ;D

I always use it to mix batter when I bake.

I also use it when I make potatoes or anything that needs mashing (yams, turnip, etc).

Shoo:
