Beginner Baker

Thank you all for so many great ideas, I can't wait to start baking! One other thing I was wondering about, do most people need that kitchen aid mixer to really make baking better? I see everyone on the cooking shows always using it.

sheri1970, I cooked it on the stove top and didn't really cook it slow or low because I was kind of in a hurry and also since I needed to cook the potatoes I cooked it on high, I guess that wasn't right?

Jalapeno burn

Thank you all for your suggestions! I was in pain until 4 am and I'm trying to stay awake in work as I type this. Not sure if its all gone yet, took my contacts out last night before I asked you guys for help and felt like a hot poker was in my eye!!!(threw them out!)I had to put my contacts in(had a spare pair, thankfully) with rubber gloves this morning (I know I should have used them in the first place). I only had milk and sour cream, worked eventually but wore off and I kept applying. Anyway, thanks everyone, I will NEVER do that again.
