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 have this incredible mixer, we are good pals! I can’t imagine my kitchen without it. I want to give this mixer to my son, who is becoming a great cook. He and his wife are vegetarians, and he comes up with the MOST incredible meals! He will love using his own Kitchenaid!

    21. May 17, 2015

      I have no idea! Eek! But with 3 teenagers, I could totally use a bigger mixer!!

      I would make Strawberry Shortcake!!! We need a mixer soooo badly! Four foodie kids. One allergic to milk, soy, tree, peanuts and a host of other things. We love desserts and now cannot eat most without modifications. This mixer would be perfect!

    24. Suebeetwo
      May 17, 2015

      Gosh, it’s so hard to decide what to make! I just picked up your latest cookbook from Costco and I’m just perusing the delicious looking recipes now. The first thing I would make in the mixer, if I win it, would be the petite chocolate cake from the Make it Paleo II Cookbook. It looks scrumptiously delicious and would be just the right size for our small family! (Not to over-indulge that is…smile!)

      Gluten free anything!!! I have never enjoyed cooking at all. Since having so many allergies I now have to prepare everything and I am loving every minute in the kitchen!!!

      May 17, 2015

      What wouldn’t I make with a 7qt KitchenAid Stand Mixer (the BIG ONE)?! I would start with the Strawberry shortcake pictured above – a fresh looking summer treat with as many ingredients as I could find at a farmer’s market!

    34. saraht23
      May 17, 2015

      If I win, I’d make the strawberry shortcake first since it’s a dessert I made shortly after my boyfriend and I started dating and it’s sentimental. Love that this one is gluten-free so his dad who has Celiac disease can enjoy it too!

      Our family cooks most of the food we eat so having good kitchen appliances is important. We get good use out of our current kitchen aid mixer but it is a pretty old hand me down so having a new one would be such a blessing. I would certainly enjoy using it to whip up something delicious and healthy for my family.

    36. Rozey
      May 17, 2015

      It is impossible to choose one thing to cook with this mixer. You probably won’t be able to get me out of the kitchen! since switching to a paleo diet, I’ve learned to love the kitchen and have been begging for a mixer. One of my favorites I will definitely be making is blueberry waffles

    37. Hershey09
      May 17, 2015

      I’d make some of those strawberry shortcakes from the recipe above and since my husband has a strawberry intolerance, I’d also make him Paleofied ginger snaps I saw on Paleo mom on Facebook.

      There are SO MANY things I would love to make with this! I would probably start with something sweet as a treat for my 4 boys. So I would probably go with paleo chocolate chip cookies ;).
