Nice present. There are so many choices about how to start. Bread? Maybe something with whipped egg whites?

Try one of the bread recipes from the recipe book you got with it. Good stuff!

Lucky girl. KitchenAid mixers are the best. Whip up some meringues for dessert and serve with strawberries perhaps. And as the other members have stated, definitely try the bread recipes.
All the best with using your mixer, once you get into it there will be no stopping you from turning out all sorts of great tasting goodies.

Since bread baking is one of my hobbies... I know what I would do.

Your kidding right?

This is my dream machine.What color did you get?I want the 6 qt pro in copper pearl. I would use it for anything untill I found a real good reason to use it which I allready know is on every thing.I love the sound of of gears and power and the fact that it has differant speeds means it has a transmission of some sorts.Awesome toy!Use it to mix your creamer or suger in a cup of coffee, or make some coolaid or jello.And when you have some time knock out 18 dozen cookies.I know you will love yours.I love mine and I dont own one yet.
