Do I need a stand mixer?

After many, many years of cooking, I've begun to dip my toes into baking. I have Chowhound to thank (or blame!) Often a recipe will appeal to me but then I read that the ingredients should be added to the "stand mixer", which I don't have and don't particularly want. Aside from very heavy dough, can I get by with a hand mixer? I'd really like to try this recipe, but not if the dough is going to get all wound up on my handmixer.

So, what do you bakers think? And is there a good heavy-duty hand mixer out there?
