Sent by TravisEditor: Travis, a good stand mixer or food processor is certainly an investment, and it's probably best not to purchase unless you're pretty sure that you'll make good use of it. Perhaps consider a heavy duty food processor with dough kneading capacity? Readers, any suggestions?
In the meantime, do consider just kneading by hand — here's a good starter tutorial!
