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.

      That amazing stawbery shortcake with whip cream (hubby loves a little extra homemade whip cream, it’s his guilty pleasure) and cheesecake stuffed stawberries. The first absolutely amazing paleo deserts I fell head over heels in love with! Great to show up to a party with!

      Aside from just sitting on my counter looking pretty while not in use….I’ve been dying to make some meringues. My mom made me some for my birthday in HER kitchen aid. Best birthday dessert ever. I think number two would have to be marshmallows.

      My kids and I have been eating paleo for almost 3 months now due to some health issues and food allergies. Your cookbooks have been a lifesaver for me! I just bought Make It Paleo II. I’d love to make the petite chocolate cake (on p. 388) with this mixer!

    31. aprilworkman
      May 7, 2015

      Strawberry shortcake!! Yes, please!! That would definitely be the FIRST thing that I make with my new KitchenAid mixer 🙂 🙂 I was diagnose with ulcerative colitis in Jan. of 2013. After going grain-free and paleo about 1 year ago, I can feel my body healing.

      I love to share my passion of health and wellness with others – and it helps to have the tools to do so. Paleo and proper nutrition – including cooking at home, has absolutely changed my life.

      Thank you for the opportunity!!

      If I win this mixer, the first thing I’d make is cake. A big ol honking paleo cake, with paleo frosting, all whipped up and pretty. I can see it now! I probably couldn’t eat it, I’d be too busy just looking at it.

      May 8, 2015

      First, I would make something deliciously decadent and not paleo like a chocolate peanut butter cake to pawn off on friends and family. Then, I would make paleo carrot cake (my favorite!). Your recipe looks simply divine!

      is there a trick for keeping the whip cream from getting too runny? i’ve tried to make it before and it often seems like it starts melting.

    50. May 8, 2015

      I would make whipped coconut cream to eat with fresh summer berries !
