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.

      I want to make the toasted marshmallow topping on the grain-free chocolate cupcake recipe you have. Even without the cupcakes… LOL

      If I won, I’d make sweetpotato muffins form my daughter. Strawberry shortcake looks pretty good too…

      I would make this shortcake, followed by some super-fluffy Pumpkin Pancakes from the 21DSD book! I’m craving both. Thanks so much!

    10. chrisfl
      May 9, 2015

      Definitely it would be the “fluffy dairy-free chocolate frosting” and then ….just me and a spoon! …?

      PS I love, love, love that book! & try the “honey sesame sauce” on grilled shrimp instead of wings, for a different twist… That sauce? Is drinkable!
      Thanks for all your hard work on II, as I am certainly enjoying it!

      It would be a great late Mother’s Day present!

      I would make lemon blueberry waffles for the kids! :0)

    13. May 9, 2015

      I would make a MASSIVE batch of Paul and Shou-Ching Jaminet’s Perfect Health Diet Muffins! My family eats them so fast, but my mixer is only big enough to make one batch. Thank you for the chance at this giveaway!

      Strawberry Shortcake is my favorite! With a birthday in July, it’s hard for it not to be. I would love to make it in a KitchenAid!

      That’s a beauty! I’d make my awesome paleo pizza crust. We grill it on the BGE and it’s always a hit.

      Whipped coconut cream! After all it would go great on some berries in the AZ heat!

    29. PamRehm
      May 11, 2015

      I would make a huge batch of chocolate chip cookies. It hurts my arm so bad to stir any cookie recipe by hand and this would make it a breeze. I might even bake peanut butter cookies too. I see all kinds of possibility!

    30. cassieroll
      May 11, 2015

      Ohhh I think I would make my family’s favorite pizza dough and have a pizza/movie night!

    33. Jskye653
      May 12, 2015

      I would make the shortcake. Angel food cake with strawberries and cool whip is my favorite birthday cake on Flag Day, but this would be the healthier, tastier version…I NEED to try it!

    34. veggiesandmeows
      May 12, 2015

      Oh man, I would love to win one of these beauties. Been ogling over them for a few years now. The first thing I would make is zillions of different cookies! Honestly, I don’t think I can choose just one type. I would make batches and batches and batches of cookies then give them away to all my neighbors and friends (one woman can only eat so much!) 😉 Thank you for this fabulous giveaway!

      I am moving from Pennsylvania to Texas next month.The kitchen was always the busiest part of our house growing up so this will be a great way to bring a little bit of home to Texas by making all my favorite family recipes! Particularly our zucchini bread, snicker-doodles and Grandma’s blueberry muffins!

      Thanks for this great opportunity!

      My fourteen year old daughter has been wanting this Kitchen Aid Mixer for a couple years now, so this would be great for not only my use, but for her as well! We would make the Lemon Blueberry Waffles first, followed up by the Strawberry Shortcake!!

    37. ruthshort
      May 13, 2015

      There are so many things I would want to try, but one would be the coconut whipped cream, because I have not gotten that to work yet!

    38. Sharon224
      May 13, 2015

      oh my goodness, there are so many recipes to choose from! I think maybe the first thing I’d make with my Kitchen Aid Mixer would probably be the carrot cake and cream cheese frosting because I LOVE CARROT CAKE!

      Then I’d just go nuts and make everything else!

    39. EmilyVC
      May 14, 2015

      I would totally make a Paleo chocolate cake – the recipe has been starting at me for months.

      May 14, 2015

      Thank you for this giveaway! I will be making the shortcake that you have posted above. Looking forward on making this!

      Meringue, just to see how much less my arm hurts by using a stand mixer, haha!

    42. bmloggins
      May 14, 2015

      Oh man, if I won i’d cook up so many things!! I’ve been wanting a mixer for quite a while. I’d make your strawberry shortcake for sure, thats my favorite! As well as caramel cake, and even that meringue cake above is looking pretty good! ? So many options, I’d use it every day, such a time saving convenience!

    43. bruin
      May 16, 2015

      Not quite sure where to start with what I would make, but your amazing Angel Food Cake would definitely be on the list. Since it’s perfect to shred cooked chicken, chicken salad would definitely be the runner up (:

      May 16, 2015

      I would love to make lemon blueberry waffles should I win this wonderful surprise!!

    45. May 17, 2015

      Never tried your Coconut Whipped Cream. I believe I would give that a go.

    46. PBBarb
      May 17, 2015

      I’d actually start baking again. Some cookies, bread and cakes! I’d also love to add the grinder attachment so I could make 50/50 burgers (bacon and ground beef)
