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

(Click above to PIN this image!)

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.

      What a great giveaway! So exciting. I literally could have used this in my kitchen just 2 hours ago. The cake is cooling now. So I’d continue to play and bake in he kitchen as I do but with higher performance and less clean up. I love the features on this model. I want! And I always share what I make with friends and family. Because… Pass it on!

      I would make the grain free chocolate cupcakes with toasted marshmallow frosting! That recipe sounds like something I need to try for an upcoming camping trip with my 4 boys! Best of both worlds! S’mores and a cupcake!

      May 5, 2015

      Oh my gosh! Decisions, Decisions!… All your desserts look so delicious but I think that I would make your Strawberry Shortcake first if I won the Kitchenaid mixer
      because it’s a favorite in my house!

    20. clarissacamille
      May 5, 2015

      I don’t even know if I can decide what I’d make – it might be between your carrot cake and trying to perfect my chocolate recipe to my favorite grain free bread. I want to make it all! Is that an acceptable answer?! 😉

    21. Dpumpy
      May 6, 2015

      KtchenAid! Yeah. You have to have a good KitchenAid to make my grandmother’s povitica recipe!

      Oh wow I have wanted a good mixer for awhile now! My mom and I always used to bake chocolate chip cookies together when I was little and I loved her KitchenAid mixer. I think the first thing I would do is invite my mom over and show her how to make paleo chocolate chip cookies! 🙂

      I would make your nut-free carrot cake first. It stares at me every time I go on pinterest!

    27. bbates31
      May 6, 2015

      That is tough choice. You can make so many good things with that mixer. I think I would go with sweet potato pizza crust or the Strawberry Shortcake now that it is strawberry season.

      I definitely want to give these lemon cupcakes a go. ANYthing with lemon curd is right up my alley. I can thank my Gran for that. 😛 Next will be a dairy free frosting for my sister’s wedding cake (gluten free, low FODMAP, dairy free, almond free – yeesh!)… searching your website asap.

    42. abell22
      May 6, 2015

      I am so excited about this giveaway! There are about a million things I want to make with this stand mixer (P.S. I am so pumped it’s the mack daddy one)! My husband and I just got married in January and this was an item on our registry we were hoping to get but didn’t! We would be thrilled to win this and be able to add this beauty to our kitchen! We both love to cook and practically live in our kitchen. Of all the recipes of yours, I would love to make your amazing carrot cake with this Kitchen Aid stand mixer!

      After realizing that I was (eeps!) intolerant to both gluten and lactose, I thought my days of baked goods were done-zo. Luckily, stumbling upon this blog has helped me feel way less helpless when it comes to eating delicious treats– first on my list for this mixer would 100% be the grain-free donuts. 🙂

      May 6, 2015
