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 would make a gluten free cheesecake with a blueberry topping.

      I would make these coconut flour lemon poppyseed muffins I am seeing ALL over the interwebs! I have yet to try any paleo/primal “treats” because we don’t have a good mixer! I just drool over the photos!

    3. Giomanach
      May 18, 2015

      I would be able to double the recipe of cakes and cookies in this large mixer! It would seriously reduce the time of baking treats for parties and coworkers, what a dream!

      I would make some power cookies that I can take with me to munch on. Snacking is my weakness and it would really help to have some nutritious snacks on hand!

      I have been sooooo anxious to try your angel food cake recipe! Having a KitchenAid would be perfect for it!

      I would make some delicious chocolate chip cookies, and red velvet cake (my favourite). Since I just moved across the country on my own I haven’t had the time or the money to buy myself a sweet appliance, and since I love to cook and bake its been kind of a drag. So having this appliance would kick start my love affair with the kitchen again and I would be so greatly appreciative.
      Thank you for all that you do, your recipes are awesome!!!

      Oh gosh, that strawberry shortcake looks amazing so I’ll definitely make that! I’m on day 8 of the Whole30 right now though, so I’ll have to do some research to see what else I can make for now!

    9. ecbehrends
      May 18, 2015

      Just about done with my Whole30 here and am excited to start creating treats that are paleo friendly! Probably cookies would be my first choice, then some matcha ice cream(with kitchenaid ice cream maker, of course.

      I have been dreaming of this mixer for eons. My hand mixer I’ve had since college died just the other day!! The first thing I would make with my fancy new mixer would probably be my famous carrot cake. It is a very versitile recipe and can be made paleo as well.
      If I do win I promise to take mouth watering photos and share my recipe with ya’ll.

    15. keortega

    20. amyws
      May 18, 2015

      Since I only own an almost 20 year old hand mixer, I would make anything and everything that required a long mixing time. Meringues would be a good place to start.

    21. ca1029
      May 18, 2015

      That Strawberry Shortcake would be first on my list! My little guy would love helping and using his home grown strawberries! That would be a fun summer kickoff for us!

      May 18, 2015

      The list of recipes I want to try is soooo long. I’m working on a banana bread recipe and a protein cookie one also. I’d probably do one of those first.

      Almond “cream” puffs or this shortcake recipes… Or cookies…

      If I won this mixer I would give it to my sister for her birthday and we would make our favorite paleo recipe Choco chip cookies.

      I would use the mixer with an attachment to grind meat in my own kitchen…plus try out the awesome recipes from your blog and books!

      May 18, 2015

      I’ve wanted a stand mixer forever, but just can’t bring myself to spend the money on one. I would most likely make GF cinnamon rolls first! I tried to make them with a standard hand mixer and it just didn’t work out well!

    27. mrsellison61
      May 18, 2015

      Would love to make your strawberry shortcake! Perfect for this hot weather & my boys would love it!!

      May 18, 2015

      Some sort of Paleo dessert! Of course I’m too indecisive to make a decision now about what I’d make….either cake or cookies…

    29. May 18, 2015

      Would love to win! Would make strawberry shortcake for sure

    30. sfdoak
      May 18, 2015

      The Strawberry Shortcake looks like a great place to start with a new KitchenAid 7 quart mixer! I have wanted one of these my entire life, really! Its just never been in financial reach.

      I would make the homemade yeast rolls my mom and I used to make together…I know they aren’t paleo but there are so many memories associated with those! This is an amazing giveaway! Thanks for all that you guys do!!

      I would love to win this mixer!!! My husband and I are new to the Paleo journey, and we have wanted this mixer for so long!(it was on our wedding registry. We ended up skipping the large ceremony in place of a small quiet wedding with close family and friends. It was magic! ?) We both love to cook and I LOVE baking! This would definitely get some use in my house! Can’t wait to make some yummy paleo treats with it! Plus the red one matches the colors I’d love to use in my future kitchen!!!

    34. ChanelGleicher
      May 18, 2015

    40. tabithaperry
      May 18, 2015

      The coconut cake with the coconut cream cheese frosting from the first make it paleo cook book. It is one of my favorites!! Thank you for the great recipes!

    41. nicoleknight
      May 18, 2015

      As a graduate student who loves to cook healthy paleo eats on a budget, this mixer would do wonders! I always admire the kitchen aid mixers and accessories. First thing I would like to make – gluten free chocolate cake with hazelnuts and raspberries! 🙂

    42. reneebrooke88
      May 18, 2015

      I would definitely make the strawberry shortcake, which is my all time favorite dessert!! Yum!!

      May 18, 2015

      Oh man, oh man…I would make that strawberry shortcake recipe! Been on a very strict paleo diet for health reasons (not even any nightshades, wah!) Been dying for something comfort food-like so this would be the perfect 1st recipe to make.

    44. May 18, 2015

      Hi y’all! The first thing I would make with the kitchenaid mixer above would be my grandmothers German Chocolate Cake with a paleo twist. I have recently started my own sweet shoppe for delicious paleo treats and sweets for special events and this professional size mixer would make my baking life so much easier! Cheers!!

    45. brystew12
      May 18, 2015

      I would make zucchini bread with fresh zucchini from my garden!

    47. May 18, 2015

    48. inah24
      May 18, 2015

      I’ve been craving some carrot cake and i just got a cake holder from my in laws. I think that’s what I’ll make first. Yum!!!
