I've had a Kitchen Aid for 3 years, but never used it as anything more than a souped up hand mixer. A friend gave me this book along with the pasta roller and grinder attachments about a month ago. I've used a half dozen recipes out of this book and all have been great and in the process I've really learned to use my Kitchen Aid. Learning to use the pasta roller was more than worth the price of the book and the pasta recipes are killer. If your buying a Kitchen Aid or giving somebody one as a present this book is the perfect compliment - its really expanded what I can do with my mixer.

I was so pleased to receive this book from a friend. At first, I wasn't sure that it would be useful to me as I do not have the different attachments for my mixer other than what it came with. I was so pleasantly surprised to find so many wonderful recipes that do not require extra attachments. So far, (I think the Orange Chocolate Chip Bundt Cake and the Potato and Cheese Pierogi's are my favorite, but I am working my way through the recipes and may find new favorites tomorrow!!!

Bought a lovely Kitchenaid stand mixer.

And that's what it did. Stand. And do nothing. Until I bought this book.

Seriously, Kitchenaid should up the price of the mixer by the cost of this book, and throw it in as an essential attachment.

Very helpful, lots of explanations and tips. Couldn't work without it. If you splashed out for the mixer, splash out for the book. It's as essential as the power cord.

This gets 5 stars IF you have a KitchenAid mixer with attachments. It makes the difference between actually using all those cool attachments and putting them away in a drawer! I wouldn't recommend it to those who have the mixer, but no attachments, because it's use would be limited.

I have a bone to pick with reviewers who slam a book because it may not have pictures. You can't judge a book by such petty criteria. After all, Mastering the Art of French Cooking (one of the best books ever written about French cuisine) doesn't have pictures. To have or to have not pictures is something that a publisher determines when deciding a price for the book. You want to spend $40 on a book with pictures? Fine. For my money I'll take a $20 or less price point cook book with great recipes any day. The Mixer Bible is chock full of great recipes whether you have the extra attachments or not. The authors were recently on a Kitchenaid conversations panel where they stated that half the recipes in the book can be made with only the basic 3 attachments that come with most mixers whether Sunbeam, Viking or Jennaire. It seems like they really tried to write a book for anyone with a stand mixer. They wrote a great book to cook by, not to use as a picture book. Judge a book not by its cover, but what's inside in the way of recipes and know how.

Finally I have discovered the many uses of my mixer. From pasta to apple sauce, I had no idea there are so many wonderful recipes that can be made with a mixer. Traditionally my mixer was used mainly for cakes and soups, but now I realize there is so much more that can be done. This book explains in detail how to use all of the attachments (thank goodness) and also gives lots of helpful tips with the recipes.

Overview: if you've never used a mixer before, and just spent $300 on one, this $15 investment will help you learn to use it like a pro. However, if you've had your mixer for some time and are good at using it, there are more impressive recipes in other books.

This book has some nice recipes in it. But what has been best about it for me was is learning techniques to get the most from my mixer. There is a bit of a learning curve learning to bake with a standing mixer for the first time and this book helps with that. For example, since I don't have the room to knead and make bread in my tiny apartment, I've been trying my mixer. But it can be hard to get a good crumb from machine kneaded bread. This book's bread recipes included the extra steps and techniques specific to bread making with the mixer. The cookie and cake recipes are nice too.

A small complaint would be that I don't think the recipies are spectaucluar. I've got much better ones in other books and from my family. But again, using my ingredients and their steps and techniques, my cookies and cakes are coming out even better than when made by hand.

The only big drawback to this book is that so many of the recipes call for attachments I can't afford and don't have the room for, you can still make most of those recipes, you just have to do some of it manually.

One final note though, I LOVE the organization of the book. The recipes are well laid out and very easy to read through, much better than other books I own.

This is a great book for any kitchen with a stand mixer. These two ladies have come up with some really good recipes that are created with the mixer and makes use of all of the attachments that I never knew how to use before. Kitchen Aid should be pretty happy with this one. I learned that I have a machine that can do everything I need in the kitchen and it is so much fun doing it. I can't wait for the next book.
