What are the best ways to christen a brand new stand mixer? Sadly, this question doesn’t pertain to me, but to two different friends of mine who recently came into great kitchen fortune in the form of KitchenAids. Both are great cooks who can handle a challenge. What do you recommend they do to take these puppies for a spin? For years I’ve been flipping to the next cook book page or scrolling to the next blog post whenever I see a stand mixer as a recipe requirement, so nothing specific is coming to mind. I yelled BREADPASTAMARSHMALLOWSPRETZELSPASTA!, but that’s not terribly helpful. So, internets, whaddaya got?
