  4. Kitchen Basics
    Finally took the plunge and got a kitchenaid stand mixer. I'm looking forward to using it, but don't know what is worth using it for and what is just best to hand mix. The "recipe" book even tells you to mix scrambled eggs with it. The beater isn't dishwasher safe, so if I could just scramble...
