Kitchenaid Stand Mixer Giveaway

Brought to you by the Number 4:

The 90th Anniversary Edition Kitchenaid Stand Mixer. It’s beautiful in all it’s candy apple redness. And shiny. And it’s the sparkliest way I know how to say thank you for reading.

When I started blogging 4-ish years ago, I had no idea how to operate a camera. I could turn it on, take a picture, and transfer them to my laptop. That’s it. The early days of this blog are full of blurry, poorly lit and embarrassingly composed shots. Now, when I take pictures of my 9-month old, I often get what I’ve learned to be the ultimate mom-with-a-camera compliment:

What kind of camera do you have?!

Ha! Although to be fair, someone has yet to ask me what kind of oven I have :) I keep telling myself that I’m going to go back and replace those photos… but until someone figures out how to bottle and sell extra free time, it remains only a dream. But you don’t care about my ramblings – let’s get to the mixer giveaway!

All you have to do is tell me, what are some of the best things you’ve eaten or cooked in the last month. Or year. Maybe it was a super fancy dinner out. Maybe it was a super juicy, last-of-season peach. Or maybe it was an early Monday morning run to Chick-fil-A after having wicked chicken biscuit withdrawals on Sunday. (I should start a support group because I know I’m not the only one!)

And since that really only takes care of one entry, just stop by Nd say hi for the rest of the week.

Giveaway details:

  • The giveaway will be open for entry from now until Thursday, 11/4/10 at 11:59pm central.
  • One entry per person. And don’t forget to leave a valid email address – no email, no winner notification! (Nothing funky happens with your email as a result of commenting. It’s also not visible to the public. Pinky swear!)
  • The winner will be chosen at random by one of those cold, unfeeling random number generator sites.
  • The winner will be announced here (and emailed) on Friday, 11/5/10.
  • Want two extra chances to win Big Red up there? Follow me on Facebook and Twitter (simply leave an extra comment to let me know)

That’s it! Couldn’t be any easier. Or better. Unless it came complete with a tall pitcher of ice cold margarita. And a straw.

    The best thing I’ve had in the past week actually is the tiramisu at Spaghetti Warehouse in Memphis. I’m not a coffee fan at all, but this mix of delicate lady fingers, creamy marscapone, sweet chocolate, and bitter coffee just makes me weak in the knees!

It was simple to make, didn’t dirty too many dishes and heated up for wonderful leftovers! A huge winner in my book!

    Congrats on 4 years! Your blog is fabulous – you should be so proud! As for the best thing I’ve eaten this month…it has to be the new recipe for roast chicken I tried – cream cheese and herbs stuffed under the skin made for one divine dinner!

  • Hmm, let’s see… Luckily, since I have all week to comment, I don’t have to choose just one – yay! The roasted broccoli from pinchmysalt was pretty fantastic. I highly recommend it.

  • Happy Blogiversary and great giveaway! The best thing I cooked recently was either apple cinnamon cupcakes with honey buttercream frosting or a bacon, fig and balsamic pizza. Delicious.

  • I am not following you on facebook

  • Melissa McGregor

    Hmm…the best thing I’ve eaten…definitely has to be some brown butter cookies straight out of the oven. Barely baked. With cracks. Super doughy. And nutty. Oh, and the chocolate…

  • steph

    I’ve been super sick with this head and chest cold for the last 6 days so I’ve been eating Spicy Chicken Chili – white beans, chicken thighs, 1/2 onion, lots of garlic, jar of salsa verde, poblano and habanero peppers in the crock pot for 6 hours.

    I know I probably won’t win. First posts never do in these things, but really, just talking about the chicken chili is worth it.

  • Jessica

    One of the best things I’ve eaten this month was a grilled pizza with ricotta, spinach, and tomato. Grilling pizza is new to me but I’m having a ball trying a variety of toppings.

  • Katrina Deaton

    I have been winging it with my meals. Came up with a beef and pepper stew type thing that was great.

  • Anne Marie

    One of the best things I’ve eaten in the past month is sugar donut muffins. They were delicious!

  • Lyndsey

    I am glad I can comment more than once, because there is no way I could pick just one yummy thing I have eaten or made! This past weekend I made delicious margarita cupcakes, they were sooooo yummy (and had actual tequila in them, bonus)! Happy anniversary!

  • Vanessa

    We went to The Old Pinke House in Savannah last week. Everything we had was DIVINE! Southern Sushi, Pork Tenderloin, Almond Crusted Tilapia with some delicious shrimp… all AMAZING!

  • Stephanie

    The best thing I’ve had this past month would have to be my pumpkin cheesecake.

  • Charlotte

    Hey!
    Firstly, congratulations, big time! It takes a lot of patience to maintain a food blog!

    Secondly, this is an awesome giveaway, it has been sort of a dream of mine to even get the chance to look at one of these mixers.

    Oh, and the best thing I’ve eaten this month was some awesome springrolls I made from scratch. It is a hellishly long process because I like and want them small and very pretty, but it is definitely worth it.

  • Amy

    My favorite thing I ate was meatloaf this past week. There is something so yummy about eating good old fashion comfort food

  • Charlotte

    The best thing I ate was a few months ago when I just moved into my very first apartment. I was in the mood to eat something wonderful and delicious. So I made a 4 layered lasagna with seasoned ground chicken, layered with portobello mushrooms and 2 types of cheese – monterrey jack and cheddar cheese. It was absolutely perfect and wonderfully delicious. I only gave my really good friend a piece of it and she begged me to make another. :-) I have to admit though after enjoying that perfectly sized lasagna for about a week I quickly settled into my apartment and made it my own.

  • Kelly

    I made pumpkin spice cupcakes filled and toped with cream cheese frosting. They were ammmaaazing!

  • heather palmer

  • Megan

    Have to say that the 150 cups of caramel corn that I made for my wedding favors is the favorite thing that I’ve made. I always knew it was the beginning of fall when my Mom made caramel corn so what better way to celebrate the beginning of being husband and wife then by making some for all of our guests!

  • One of the best things I’ve eaten in the last month was some skirt steak that I marinated in apple cider vinegar, onions and jalapenos (among many other things). My husband grilled it perfectly and it was juicy and super tasty.

    My boyfriend made some bomb crab cakes for my parents this last weekend! Yum.

    The absolute best meal I’ve had in the last year was in South Padre, Texas. We went there on vacation this past July and ate at a place called The Sea Ranch. I don’t like seafood, so I had a filet mignon. Best steak ever! It literally melted in my mouth.

  • St.Ar

    Holy-awesomeness-giveaway! I can’t believe I haven’t justified the cost of one of these yet, but I would be over the moon to win this! The best things I’ve cooked over the past year all involve my Lebanese in-laws. I make a mean kefta now and couldn’t be happier to have my mother-in-law teach me her tricks of the kitchen. I pray to the cold random-number generator machine to pick me! PS: I love your blog and happy bloggie anniversary party!

  • I recently discovered I like sushi this year, so I would have to say that! It had crab, craw fish, asparagus, and cream cheese then the whole thing was tempura with a spicy sauce on top.

  • Congratulations on your fourth year! I found your site a couple months ago and it’s awesome. Here’s to another four, and even more :)

    AND the best thing I ate this month was a sweet pumpkin muffin with cream cheese icing I made for my hubby and some visiting friends.

  • The best thing I’ve eaten this month? Perhaps simple black beans cooked in a crock pot with a ham hock. I just don’t get it. How can something that simple and haphazardly thrown together taste THAT GOOD? I don’t know, but there’s a second batch simmering away in my kitchen right now. :)

  • I just started my web/blog and you are one of my favorites! As far as something good? I have 2 things!….
    1) In honor of my son’s birthday (turning 10 on Halloween), I always mix a bag of BRACHS CANDY CORNS and a can of PLANTERS COCKTAIL PEANUTS in a bowl. If you were to close your eyes and eat them together you would think you are eating a PayDay candybar!!!
    2) Most requested recipe from my kids friends… mini sliders… I use ground chuck and sirloin mix. Mix in worcestershire and s&p. BBQ. Top with cheese (kids like cheddar. adults like crubled blue cheese). Put into a Hawaiian Sweet Roll with a little mayo, ketchup and finely shredded lettuce. And watch the plate dissapear! I might have to blog these recipes this week myself :).
    Tracy

    I have been on a diet since July, so when I splurge on a great dinner out, it better be worth it. I was at the beach during the first week in October and had lunch at one of my favorite restaurants: The Ruddy Duck in Morehead City, NC. I had one of their lunch specials that day and an unbelievable appetizer. I started with the crab and spinach dip with pita points. It is hands down the best crab dip or spinach dip I’ve ever had. I followed that up with the chicken burrito filled with melted cheese, juicy chicken, black beans, Mexican rice, and pico de gallo. It was incredible and the biggest burrito I’ve ever seen (probably almost 2 pounds, so I had a ton of leftovers). If you’re ever in that area, go to that restaurant!

    It might seem insignificant, but those three ingredient peanut butter cookies (you know, with peanut butter, an egg, and sugar); after not being allowed to have desserts of any kind for two months due to medical reasons, eating these was pure heaven. ? They probably weren’t fabulous to a passerby, but to me, they were the best cookies in the world! >__<

    Congrats on the anniversary! :]

  • Allison

    Mmmmm…I’ve been craving Cyclone Anaya’s Alambre Al Carbon with a sangria swirl margarita since we took our in-laws there.

Love your blog!

  • Alicia

    You. Are. My. Hero. You. Are. My. Husband’s. Hero. We grew up in Arkansas, where every singe Mexican restaurant served amazing cheese dip. We have since moved to California and when I try and explain the amazingness that is cheese dip everyone just gives me a blank stare. We have tried so many cheese dip recipes that claim to be “just like the restaurant”. All have failed miserably. We just made your queso blanco and oh my, you are our hero!!! It has exactly the right texture and exactly the right taste. We added cayenne pepper, salt, and a touch of garlic powder. I need to do a little bit of tweaking with the seasonings to get to the exact taste I remember, but we were eating it right out of the pot. Thank you, thank you.

    I had an amazing fish fry this past weekend at a restaurant that used the be a barn. The food was fantastic and the atmosphere was awesome too! Tonight I am going to make homemade granola the first time ever..wish me luck!

    PS.. What an awesome giveaway..we’d love to have one in our house!

  • The best thing I’ve eaten recently was my homemade tomato sauce. It was really that good. I think it was because we used all fresh ingredients. It still tastes like summer to me. Great give-away!

  • Kate S

    I have dreams about this stand-mixer. It is an absolutely gorgeous achievement! I love the modern-meets-vintage look and could do some serious stress-releiving baking to chill me out throughout the rest of my first year of law school with this baby!

  • Carla

    I’m pregnant and most food is a no-go for me right now, the only thing I can keep down is strawberry smoothies! :)

    demureprincess7(at)gmail(dot)com

  • The best thing I’ve eaten lately that I haven’t made would have to be some awesome pasta I had at a pasta place somewhere near St. Louis (we were in town for a friend’s wedding). It had chicken, wheat penne, mushrooms, and a killer wine sauce. Wish I could figure out the secret to making it!

    The best thing I’ve made recently would be pumpkin cheesecake cookies, in the dessert department. Hot and Sour tofu & chicken soup was also pretty yummy. :)

  • Marg

    Really hope to win!!!

    I’ve had the opportunity to eat a lot of different foods lately. I had some great sushi (which was on fire) and got to watch my cook do some fancy tricks with his spatulas and the food.

    I made these pumpkin spice mini cupcakes for a fundraiser at work and I was feeling a little down because I didn’t think they were my best work yet but paired with marshmallow cream cheese icing they were amaaazziing. People at work who hardly ever eat sweets were coming back all day to compliment me and get seconds.

  • bubbly beer bread yummmmmm :)

  • Hey, what kind of oven do you have? (wink)

    And as for the yummiest food I’ve eaten recently: my neighbor brought over some homemade French bread, and MY GOSH it was awesome! I’d really, really like to make my own bread, but I’m intimidated by the process. It seems to me (really, though) that a KitchenAid Stand Mixer will cure me of said intimidation. I hope I get a chance to test out that theory! :)

    Thanks!

    Spaghetti!

  • Julia

    Ooh candy apples, how perfectly seasonal! The best thing to come out of my kitchen lately is probably the garlic cheese bread I made the other day. I didn’t have a loaf, so I sliced some buns in half and pressed them between two cookie sheets with a cast iron dutch oven. I mushed up the butter with lots of crushed garlic, parsley and pepper, and I sprinkled a bit of mozza on top. They were so good!

  • Liz

    My sister has a Kitchenaid Stand Mixer and I’m so jealous of her. It seems to make all of her baking that much easier to do. I’d love to win this and make my own baking easier since I’m known as the girl that bakes at work and within my fiance’s family these days!

  • Love the sassy red color of this mixer- this has been on my wishlist for a long long time :)

  • I love the red one! I still use my mom’s avocado green mixer from the 1970s. If that doesn’t say much about the life of a kitchen aid mixer, I don’t know what does!
