Two years ago, for Christmas, I received a beautiful, candy apple red stand mixer. I'm ashamed to say I've never used it. I do bake bread occasionally, but prefer to knead my dough by hand (it's a great form of therapy) and for anything else that needs mixing / beating, like egg whites, I use my dilapidated old hand mixer.
Yet I know stand mixers are loved -- passionately -- by some. For those of you who use one, what do you make with them that's so good? Please inspire me!
