Help - Hand mixer, food processor, stand mixer???
Growing up in a family of diabetics, we very seldom baked or made desserts at home as a consideration to those with severe diet restrictions. So, I have no exposure to baking.
Now that I am married to a man with a sweet tooth and who has cravings for dessert, I would like to start baking instead of serving store bought dessert frequently. I want to buy a mixer - I have seen chefs on TV shows use a hand mixer or a powerful food processor or a stand mixer. I am not sure which one I should get. Considering that I am a beginner to baking, what would be a good purchase for bread, cake and cookies? I am hoping to bake 2-3 times a month to begin with. Thanks for your help.
