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.

      The first thing I would make is this strawberry shortcake recipe. I’m salivating already!

      Also, just as an aside, I am following them on twitter, but my email is different from this user account 🙂

      I will make so many healthy and yummy treats for my family. I love having a paleo toddler!

    3. lilsplace
      May 17, 2015

      I would start experimenting, I don’t have a mixer at home at all and haven’t been able to experiment. I use my hand mixer for a lot of things and I’d love the Kitchen Aid to help me explore the varying recipes out there.

    4. dlbvet
      May 17, 2015

      Gorgeous mixer to go with drop-dead, gorgeous recipes. I would make the petite chocolate cake with dairy-free vanilla frosting! Delish.

    5. immortalb4
      May 17, 2015

      I’d make this meringue frosting because it looks divine!

    6. sbbiomed
      May 17, 2015

      I have wanted a stand mixer for a while. I am trying to become paleo for my kid’s health and I can’t do too much with my cheap hand mixer (small batches). I would love this item and then I can add attachments like the ice cream maker to make more healthy food for my kids.

    7. alisadawn86
      May 17, 2015

      I would make muffins in every flavor!!!

    8. Shaggy13spe
      May 17, 2015

      Definitely a cake, or maybe your cookies, or maybe, oh there is so much to choose from. 🙂

    9. amandasakovitz
      May 17, 2015

      I would make a red velvet cake!

    10. orfitnessdiva

      having this would be life-changing 🙂

      The cake above!! Meringue us such a bear to whip by hand! What a fun giveaway! Thank you!

      May 17, 2015

      This is such an exciting giveaway! I would first, get out and by Make It Paleo 2 since I’m possibly the only person in America that hasn’t yet, and then I would choose the most adventurous recipe in the book to make with my new Kitchenaid mixer. Perhaps even try to recreate your wedding cake, since it looks so good!

      Well I would guess that if I won the first day would be a very busy one, as I’m sure everyone would have a request of something different to try. I have 2 individuals in my care with special needs and my in-laws live with us on the weekends, and as if that isn’t enough with my kids as well as my husband friend lives with us. (He asked 4 years ago if he could crash at our house for a couple months and is still here) But all these people make for good memories and I really do love to entertain and feed a crowd. If I won the kitchen Aid it would sure be used well.

    14. anitamarcoff

      I would most likely make chocolate chip cookies! 🙂

      Oh my gosh! I just started baking on the side as a way to help supplement my income while I am in nursing school. This would be a huge help as I am current using a regular hand mixer. Oh the possibilities would be endless!

    17. wendyjmathis
      May 17, 2015

      The dreams of the things I wanna make! I’m entranced with the possibilities!
      Shared the Chili Lime Pork Medallions recipe with my son – think it’s a hit!

      yummmmmm- This one is a sure winner !

    19. Thinning
      May 17, 2015

      The first thing I’d make with this mixer is mashed sweet potatoes.

    20. adumas
      May 17, 2015

      I’d love to make this Strawberry Shortcake with a new 7qt KitchAid! It would also make making my paleo bread, muffins and pizza crusts SO much easier!

    21. bribri822
      May 17, 2015

      I have never in my life made a whole cake of any kind. This mixer would certainly give me the confidence to try one of the beautiful paleo creations that I often drool over, but never attempt, from the MIP series.

    22. May 17, 2015

      Since recently diagnosed with Celiacs, all those delicious gluten-free desserts!!

    23. jessb
      May 17, 2015

      So many possibilities! I think the first thing I would whip up would be this dreamy looking meringue!

    24. hercgirl
      May 17, 2015

      I would make the strawberry shortcake. That is a favorite of ours for the summer. Thank you for making it possible to enjoy it again!

    25. weskifast
      May 17, 2015

      It would only be right to make the strawberry shortcake since the berries match the blender’s color and it’s the featured recipe!

    26. taramackie
      May 17, 2015

      I really want to make crispy meringue cookies of all different flavors! Maybe I could even sell them locally! That would be great for me, as I desperately need extra income.

    27. lilmrswilson
      May 17, 2015

      I’d buy the meat grinder attachment and make my own ground meats! Sausages and minced meats are in my future!

    28. kitkat0803
      May 17, 2015

      No doubt we would make chocolate chip cookies first.

    29. wilddaughter
      May 17, 2015

      There would be cakes! And gluten-free cookies! Everything that my tiny hand-mixer isn’t able to handle!

    30. amsch001
      May 18, 2015

      Oh man, if I won this mixer the first thing I’d make is probably paleo banana bread. Oh! Or banana bread sliced and topped with the strawberry shortcake filling? I think yes. Definitely yes.

    31. bepfarr
      May 18, 2015

      STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE!!! Wow! And thank you!

    32. flagler2
      May 18, 2015

      I would make a strawberry cheesecake.

    33. sarahscandal
      May 18, 2015

      I followed on twitter @sarahscandal; I really cannot fully express my love for this KitchenAid Mixer. Every time I see it I can’t help but think how beautiful it is and get overwhelmed with thoughts of how much yummy things I want to make with it! I’ve also loved seeing so many strawberry shortcake recipes but this one takes the cake 😉 I would HAVE to make this take on the dessert!

    34. kcollins

      This would be life changing for me and my hubby. He was diagnosed with eosinophilic esophagitis last year and based on the food allergy testing he went through we were told he should avoid dairy, rice, barley, and corn. His food allergies affect his esophagus rather than his digestive system.

      Enter the paleo diet!

      Our new diet has been great for both of us, and having awesome kitchen appliances makes it that much easier to adhere to the protocols we have to live by now.

      (Not to mention…the food is awesome!)

      We actually just made your sweet potato spicy chicken for dinner last night and it was AH-mazing!

      Having a kick a** mixer would help me delve into the world of paleo treats, I have yet to conquer a cake and that’s my next experiment.

      You guys rock!

    35. May 18, 2015

      The strawberry shortcake filling or the red velvet cake would make a great treat for my Sunday School class. . . or just me!!! LOL

      The STRAWBERRY shortcake–> definitely for my mom’s bday coming up! Thanks !!!!!

      I would probably want to make a paleo carrot cake, which is the cake from my wedding. Also, cinnemon rolls. 🙂

    39. VonAbbenstein
      May 18, 2015

      If this mixer was blessed enough to land a spot on my kitchen counter, I’d christen it with this recipe for salted caramel cupcakes (:

      May 18, 2015

      I would make ATK sandwich bread then I’d toast two slices, one for my wife and one for myself. I would then top each with two soft poached eggs and p’raps add a dollop of paleo hollandaise. We both REALLY miss our poached eggs on toast!

    41. Seven
      May 18, 2015

      I would so make that cake! My guys are cake lovers and a paleo cake would be awesome!

    42. caitiecakes
      May 18, 2015

      I would make a flourless chocolate torte or chocolate chip cookies… or carrot cake cupcakes… or brownies… or paleo whipped cream… so many options, don’t make me choose! 😉

    43. dukeman12
      May 18, 2015

      Definitely would make your wedding cake!!!

    44. brandireina
      May 18, 2015

      I have been craving carrot cake like nobody’s business. And your guys’ recipe looks like I could not possibly be disappointed by making that strait away!

    45. calquist

      First things first, trying to recreate my husband’s favorite cake that his grandma used to make! Then a million things for myself 😛

      I would LOVE to make the strawberry shortcake!! My family’s favorite!

    47. HannaK87
      May 18, 2015

      I’d make that strawberry shortcake recipe! My birthday is coming up and as a June bug I’ve always had strawberry cake for my birthday!

    48. tara456
      May 18, 2015

      Carrot cake with some great frosting for sure!

    49. peruvianchick
      May 18, 2015

      I’ve been making homemade bread by hand for the last year in order to avoid the ugly preservatives from some store bought brands. So probably bread, tons of bread!

    50. lmbv
      May 18, 2015

      I’ll make some paleo carrot cake! Our all time favorite 🙂
