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 fluffy egg white meringue with my little boy. It always makes me happy and makes me think of my Tia’s baking with me when I was a little girl.

      May 4, 2015

      Oh it would be so hard to decide what to make first! Cake with amazing frosting probably or marshmallows…or both 😉

      I’d give it to my son who is in graduate school and setting up his first apartment. Thank you for this opportunity!

      Oh. My. Gosh. How to even decide what I would make with this 7qt stand mixer. As a new mom, I have become all about making paleo friendly meals in large, freezable quantities to save time. This 7qt mixer would allow me to up my freezer meal game by letting me double and triple my recipes, while still fitting in the bowl! I can already envision my Whole30 meat loaf, paleo friendly lactation cookies, just to name a few!

      Some primal desserts like paleo ice cream would be first on a very long list of recipes I would try! Then some loaded mashed cauliflower, Yum!!

      The first thing I will make will be the strawberry shortcake with fresh strawberries from my garden .

      I would love this KitchenAid. I am just completing my first Whole30 and looking forward to learning some baked my tricks to expand my new paleo diet. Using the mixer to try out your recipes would be a treat!

    18. mandyr82
      May 4, 2015

      Considering my sweet tooth is going nuts right now, I’d make that strawberry shortcake! But this gorgeous mixer would travel with me to my parents’ house every Thanksgiving to help their KitchenAid with all the cooking for our growing family.

      (I say “growing” because hopefully by then I’ll have a manfriend. No babies yet. But we could use the mixer to make tons of baby food once that happens!)

      ((I need to stop talking.))

    19. esatterfield

      I would attempt some marshmallows!

      I’d make my wife a paleo lemon cake for Mother’s Day! Please! I need this in my life!

      May 4, 2015

      Since I do all my cooking it would be fun to make a pie crust and have really nice meat and fruit pie that fits in the Paleo diet. Or some other baked goody that like bread that I don’t have to try and mix it by hand.

    22. tiffy1205
      May 4, 2015

      I’d make a big, beautiful cake for my husbands birthday!

      There’s this German chocolate pie that my dad really wants me to make him for fathers day. I would definitely use the kitchen aid mixer to make it for him! 🙂

      Hard to pinpoint just one thing that I would make but my husband used to own a french bakery and made the most crazy good cinnamon rolls on the planet (he used croissant dough). He still makes them for christmas gifts so I want to rework the recipe into a healthier version that I can eat as well – and hopefully everyone else! Our Cuisinart is very old, weak, feeble, small and the peeling, husband has been wanting a new one to use to make his cinnamon rolls, he is even thinking about going into business (side biz) and sell them again – hopefully my version will be good enough to sell as well!

      I make my own body wash with a coconut oil base, a big stand miger would make it so much better

      I’d make some grain free lemon poppy seed muffins – just what I need now that the weather is warming up!

      My boyfriend and I have been huge into crossfit this past year, and with that we have started a 90% paleo diet. Recently we have vowed to give up wheat/grains for a full year in hopes to make the transition complete and easier for us. In doing so we need better kitchen appliances such as the Kitchen Aid Mixer! The first thing I would make is your Grain-free Chocolate Cupcakes with Toasted Marshmallow icing!

    38. musbkc
      May 4, 2015

      I would give it to my awesome wife who is nothing short of a miracle worker in the kitchen. She makes amazing meals for our family of 6 and ever since our food makeover she has always wanted nice equipment to cook large meals and make batches of good food for us! She loves to cook and create and this would fulfill a huge dream. To bless her with this would be a such a treat for her. She has always wanted a RED kitchen aid mixer. This would be a dream gift . . .

      I would make Graduations decorated cookies and a Big Strawberry Shortcake to celebrate ydaughter graduation !

    40. LadyWolf
      May 4, 2015

      The first thing I would make would be sausages. I could use the meat grinder, the mixer and the sausage stuffer. Then pasta!

    41. May 4, 2015

      Wow this would be so nice to have. I could pretend to be a good cook. Your Crisp Chocolate Cookie recipe I love so much would be even better with this mixer. Do I get bonus points for sharing it on my page? Just kidding I will say anything to win 😉 Have a fabulous day Bill and Hayley thank you for all you do!

      I would give this to my mom, and I’d get her to make the chocolate cupcakes with marshmallow frosting from your site for me!

      Well I’m a baker, so this would be put to good use! I would probably start by making Primal Palate carrot cake! Yummy!

    45. sassylassy923

      I would give it to my daughter on her second Mother’s Day and make a berry tart with a coconut cream filling..

    47. beadream
      May 4, 2015

      The first thing I would make would be some homemade breads. Nothing is better than fresh homemade bread coming out of the oven with butter slathered on it. Then I would make some cute cupcakes, and after that, some more complex recipes after I am familiar with the mixer.

    48. ruthshort
      May 4, 2015

      I would most likely use it whip up a huge batch of Paleo sweet potato casserole, my favorite! Blend up those sweet potatoes with coconut milk, ghee and some maple syrup, throw in a backing dish and cover with pecans, back in the oven for a few…mmm!!! Ah I would LOVE to win this!!!

    50. MicheleSullivan
