Win a 7qt KitchenAid Stand Mixer (the BIG ONE)

The giveaway has ended. Thank you!


Picture this. It’s a warm Saturday afternoon, and you’re getting ready to do some weekend baking from Make It Paleo 2, our brand new cookbook! Up on the list is a layer cake with a meringue frosting. Which, as you might guess from the title, is a copy of the wedding cake we had at OUR wedding. Super yum!


And you have the perfect tool for an afternoon full of baking sweet treats. A KitchenAid stand mixer. But not just any KitchenAid mixer. The BIG ONE. Their 7 quart mixer is the top of the line consumer model, basically a professional mixer that they can sell to regular folks. It’s the culinary equivalent of putting on your superhero cape… suddenly, you can do anything!

Win a Kitchenaid Mixer

We’re IN LOVE with our 7 quart KitchenAid.

We’ve been fortunate to have this very same mixer in our kitchen for three years now, and it is, without a doubt, the most reliably awesome countertop appliance we own. There’s one thing you can always count on: a KitchenAid will do exactly what its supposed to do. How many things can you actually say that about these days? We’ve used our 7qt KitchenAid through the making of THREE cookbooks, and it has never let us down!


Meringue Frosting (Pg 382) from Make It Paleo 2

Well, you’re here to have a shot at winning one, right? Cool! We always love giving things away that we ALSO love, and can stand behind. This is always our favorite giveaway of the year, because it’s a product we thoroughly believe in. Every spring, we partner with KitchenAid in celebration of their sponsorship of the senior PGA event. This year’s 2015 Senior PGA event is being held at French Lick Resort (in Indiana), which is a Pete Dye designed golf course. As a former landscape architect, that name carries some serious clout (sort of like having a Picasso painting, or living in a building designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, or eating a dish personally cooked by Thomas Keller). You get the point, yeah? It’s a big deal.

So in celebration of KitchenAid and the Senior PGA Tour event at French Lick, we get to give away their biggest and best stand mixer! Seriously!

Let’s take a moment to admire it in action:

(You can find that recipe at the bottom of this post!)

So picture yourself winning one of these! Entering this year’s giveaway is easier than ever before.

      I would make all of Bill and Hayley’s desserts! I have always wanted one of these machines so that I could experiment with baking more. There is so much creativity inside of me that is bursting at the seams to be tested! For years I have been encouraging my family to make healthier choices, i.e. to switch from processed flours to almond and coconut flours. If I had a Kitchen Aid I could bake for them and allow them to taste and feel the difference that making healthier choices bring. Thanks for this opportunity!

      I would definitely make the cake above! My mom and I have been paleo since last July and her birthday is coming up soon so I was worrying about the cake! I have the Make It Paleo 2 cookbook and I when I saw this cake, I knew it had to be this one! It used to be a tradition to get a casada cake for her birthday and it looks very similar (or as close as we can get!) this would also make a great present for my mom!!

      Old fashioned girl that believes in tradition and home cooked meals as I experienced when I was young. The first thing that I would make is Home Made Bread – with the KitchenAid Mixer – save a lot of time and wear and tear on these sore wrists. Would be a Godsend. Part-Time Baker without the appropriate tools – *aahhh to dream**. Fantastic giveaway Primalpalate. Good luck everyone and Happy Monday !
