In 2010, I blogged about how my dad thought getting a KitchenAid Stand Mixer basically equated to cookies, cakes and all other sorts of calorie bombs.  But you can use a KitchenAid Stand Mixer for good, especially once you start using some of their fabulous attachments (such as the roto slicer that can shred a carrot in seconds)!

This Hippocrates quote "Let food be thy medicine; thy medicine be food" condensed the wisdom of the ages, that, if anything, working hard to make food from scratch would be the anecdote to years of eating processed, pre-packaged food.  If I wanted a cookie, I had to work for the cookie.  With the stand mixer, you are able to work smart!

So I bought my own KitchenAid Stand Mixer.  While I have made a few calorie bombs, I have also made some very healthy recipes using my KitchenAid Stand Mixer.  Standing in my kitchen listening to the whirrrrrr of the motor also reminds me of my grandmother and my mother, who both used their KitchenAid Stand Mixers to teach me the joy of cooking (sadly theirs died after 40+ years of use).

If you were at FitBloggin12, you know that I won a KitchenAid Architect 5 Quart Stand Mixer! But as I already had one I asked the kind folks that ran the #Good2Know reception if they would send the stand mixer to a raffle winner, and they said YES (in the USA or CANADA)!  (thanks to Alejandra Ramos for the inspiration of paying it forward!)

I also want to thank Unilever for providing all of the wonderful snacks at the Fitbloggin12 Reception (mmmmmhmmm mashed potatoes!) and The Zocalo Group for coordinating the mailing of the prize!

  10. Oh mah word I have always wanted a kitchen aid mixer. I dream of using the meat grinder attachment (I hunt deer and we go in on sides of grass fed organic meat) as well as the occasional calorie bombs with the kids.

    Something about the mixer screams comfort and tradition, you know?

    ReplyDelete
  11. My other comment said it didn't go thru due to error. :( Sorry if this is a duplicate.
    I was fortunate enough to receive a very old stand mixer from a friend of my mom, several years ago. It still works and I've made many yummy healthy, and not-so-healthy, treats over the years. I even made a few friends' wedding cakes with it. If I were to win this one (*fingers crossed*) I would definitely pass mine on to another friend who wants one, but doesn't have the means to get it and hope they get as much joy out of it as I have.

  12. So great to meet you at Fitbloggin, my dear! My friend Steve has this fabulous mixer and I've been coveting it ever since watching him make a Hummingbird cake recipe with it. In fact, that is one of my favorite memories - helping him prepare for a big housewarming party menu that included the cake, and licking the bowl afterwards!

  24. Every time I find a new recipe or I'm stirring up a batch of cookies in the kitchen BY HAND, I announce loudly that it would be so much EASIER if only I had a KitchenAid Stand Mixer. No one seems to be taking the hint, so hopefully I can win one instead. :)

  32. It is so kind of you to "pay it forward" by raffling off the Kitchen Aid mixer. One of my favorite memories is making a cake with my daughter when she was in grade school, having her help me put the ingredients in the Kitchen Aid mixer, flour flying everywhere! Now she is all grown up and wants her own Kitchen Aid mixer for when she cooks for her boyfriend.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I would absolutely love to win a Kitchen-Aid. I've been doing baking projects with my four year old and talking a lot with him about health and nutrition and to be honest, I've been coveting one for years, but haven't ever had the spare cash.

    ReplyDelete
  34. What a great idea to give it away instead!

A dear friend of mine got married and a bunch of us put our pennies together to buy her one - it was easily her favorite gift and it's so exciting that she could easily use it for decades to come.

  45. My first Christmas away from home I had no mixer to make my traditional cookies. I had a friend who said he had an old mixer in his garage and I was welcome to it. It turned out to be an old model Kitchen Aid with the glass bowl, as I wiped the dirty away I started to cry. The label said made in Troy, Ohio USA ... My hometown! I use this mixer to this day that has been over 12 years ago.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I don't have any of my *own* holiday super special recipes because I haven't had a mixer! Some of the recipes from my great grandma and grandma are just too hard to do by hand or even with a hand held beater. I would use the mixer to make holiday cakes and cookies for sure. Starting with mass quantities of sugar cookies from scratch!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I have eyed these beauties for years, but have yet to be able to afford one and still mix everything by hand (don't even have an electric hand mixer - whip cream is hell!). What a generous act of kindness for you to do this giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I use to borrow a friends mixer for holiday parties and made an amazing peppermint chocolate meringue style whipped concoction that required about 20 minutes of straight mixing in the Kitchenaid. I've since ditched the recipe since she moved and took the mixer with her, but I would love to have one to whip up my dense chocolate loaf cake and gingerbread at Christmas!

    ReplyDelete
  85. Firstly: I miss your face and your damn fine hugs.
    Secondly: My favorite holiday recipe requiring a mixer is a not so healthy sugar cookie dough recipe that I make but once a year. I usually don't even bother with frosting, they are that good.

    ReplyDelete
  86. Thirdly: what it is about FitBloggin that is like the best time of your life and the most incredible mind meld of emotions all at the same time?

    Fourthly: I actually remember making my very first homemade brown bread with my grams on her 1980s kitchen aid mixer when I was like 12. I inherited her old school mixer when she died. If I still ate bread at home her brown bread recipe would be my first choice.

    ReplyDelete
  87. I loved to make chocolate chip cookies with my mom!

    ReplyDelete
  88. My favorite memory of my Mom or grandma using the mixer is just being amazed at how large it was. We grew up poor so we never had nice things or many things so my grandma always had amazing gadgets and she always let me help and I felt I was the luckiest girl in the world to spend time with her and learn how to make my OWN pasta and how to make my OWN bread and cookies. When Mom finally got her own I remember thinking "Wow she's so fancy, and lucky to finally have something nice for herself". Now when I go to the stores I stroke the mixers and long for my own, not to make my life easier, but because it makes me feel connected to generations of my family and reminds me of how far we have climbed since I was a child.

    ReplyDelete
  89. As far as a favorite recipe? I honor tradition, but I like to establish my own self too. I've always been fond of gingerbread and sweet potatoes. Lately I've been trying to do more whole wheat versions of things too

(And this is totally not meant to be dramatic or anything - it's just my memory) - when she was dying, all she kept talking about was how much she wanted me to have the mixer, which unfortunately was pawned by my uncle who was supposed to be taking care of her. Every time I see a Kitchen Aid mixer, it gives me great memories.

Many different cookie recipes that need to get done for teacher's gifts, girl scouts, boy scouts and most importantly the veterans who live in the village, who each get a bag of homemade goodies from us each year. There are more than 240 of them and that mixer would come in really, really useful when we make those big batches of dough for our veterans...

    ReplyDelete
  128. My favorite- and funny memory was when my friend broke the plastic ring that goes on top of the bowl. We thought, how important could that piece be?? So we carried on making the dough for the pizzelles and it turns out: it is very important. Since it is such a heavy and thick dough, the flour went everywhere when we put it in: Counter, floor, cabinets and us of course as well...

    ReplyDelete

    My Favorite Memory of the KitchenAid was the very first time I used my very own one. I made Peanut Butter Cookies for my brand new husband (8 years ago). He knew I wanted a KitchenAid really bad so he surprised me one day and took me to the store to pick out the one I wanted. We took it home and after deciding on what to make, Peanut Butter Cookies, I went to work. I creamed the butter and sugar together, added the egg and peanut butter, then with the mixer on almost as high as it would go, I added in all the flour at one time. That did not turn out so well for our kitchen which as you would guess was covered in flour. The cookies still turned out great. Lessons learned, add flour on low a little at a time.

    My homemade Buckeye's (Peanut Butter Balls) could use the help of a KitchenAid AND a Unilever Spread! Buckeye's are dense with Butter, Peanut Butter, and Powdered Sugar. Not the best for you but oh so good. And lets not forget the chocolate bath they take once the core hardens. Sadly my beloved KitchenAid was lost during a bad moving experience.

    May favorite recipe I make with my stand mixer would have to be Cheesecake :)

  139. I have fond memories of my Dad using his KitchenAid stand mixer to make his "Famous" cheesecake. He also used the grinder attachment every holiday season to make my Mom's recipe for Turkey Stuffing. Thanks for the giveaway!

  140. At the risk of repeating myself...I think the recipe for Cinnamon Roasted Sweet Potatoes would be perfect for the upcoming holiday season.
    A KitchenAid Stand Mixer would help with so much of my holiday baking, too!

  141. I used to love using my grandmother's Kitchen Aid mixer to make Chocolate Chip cookies every Thanksgiving. I would love to finally have one so I can recreate the recipe as an adult. It's impossible to make a huge batch without the mixer & I've hesitate buying one.

  142. My mom and I used to use hers all the time to make cookies and cakes before she passed, and it was the one thing that I really wanted to have of hers. Sadly, my dad's soon to be wife wanted to keep it.

  143. I used to use one with my grandmother who had a stroke and could not easily use one side of her body. The mixer made life easier for her.
