HUGE KitchenAid Giveaway {13-Cup Food Processor, 7 Qt Stand Mixer, & Hand Blender}

UPDATE: This giveaway is now CLOSED! The winner is “Connie the Cookie Monster” (#1879). Congratulations! Thanks to everyone who entered!

Today is our last giveaway of the holiday season and we are going out with a big bang! We teamed up with our friends at KitchenAid to offer you an AMAZING KitchenAid giveaway. One lucky reader will win a KitchenAid 13-Cup Food Processor, a 7 Qt KitchenAid Stand Mixer, AND a KitchenAid 5 Speed Hand Blender. I think I just heard you scream with excitement:) I know I am jumping with joy! We love all of our KitchenAid appliances and these are 3 of our very favorites! We are SO excited about this giveaway!

The KitchenAid 13-cup Food Processor is awesome! We use ours all of the time to shred cheese and zucchini, make galette dough, make dips, and more. The 13-cup KitchenAid food processor really does everything. It slices, shreds, kneads, chops, and purees. It is a dream machine! And it has the first-ever externally adjustable slicing lever, which makes adjusting from a thick to think slice a breeze! It also has a 3-in-1 Ultra Wide Mouth Feed Tube that accommodates foods of all sizes. The Food Processor is also BPA free and dishwasher safe. It comes in red, chrome, silver, black, and white.

My KitchenAid 7-quart Bowl-Lift Residential Stand Mixer is my very best friend. My KitchenAid mixer has helped me make numerous batches of cookies. We have already shared so many memories together. Our mixer is part of our family:) Caleb is also very fond of our mixer. Every time he hears it turn on he crawls as fast as he can to watch.

The 7 Qt Mixer has a 1.3 HP Motor with 10 different speeds. It can mix, whip, and knead like no other machine on the market. It can hold over 8 pounds of dough and make 14 dozen cookies! And it whips cream in a matter of seconds. There is no better kitchen appliance, in my opinion:) The mixer comes with a dishwasher safe  Powerknead™ Spiral Dough Hook, coated metal Flat Beater, and Stainless Steel 11-Wire Elliptical Whip. The mixer comes in red, white, black, and silver.

And last, but not least, the KitchenAid 5 Speed Hand Blender. This blender might be small, but it is mighty! It blends, chops, purees, shreds, minces, mixes, and whisks…all in the palm of your hand. It is easy to use too! You can easily change between different types of stainless steel blades with no hassle or tools. We use it all of the time for pureeing soups. You can stick the hand blender right into the soup pot! It is easy to clean because all of the attachments and accessories are dishwasher safe. And it comes with a storage case so you can keep all of the components together. This is a must have kitchen tool! It comes in black and silver.

  44. My favorite holiday recipe is actually just a breakfast recipe which could be eaten at any time throughout the year – Creamed Eggs on Toast. It’s easy, you make a basic white sauce, grate in hard boiled eggs, salt and pepper to taste, then serve over toast. In my family, we tear the toast into a pile of bite-sized pieces. This recipe is a favorite of mine during the holidays because it reminds me of Christmases spent at my grandparents’. If I woke up early enough, I got to tiptoe down the stairs and help grandma make the toast while listening to grandpa play carols on the organ until my rowdy brothers woke up.

  45. My husband and I have started a tradition of making a big meal of steak and crab legs for either Christmas or New Year’s (whichever one we are at home for) and it is a huge hit!

  46. My very favorite holiday recipe is Chocolate Crinkle Crisps. My great grandmother used to send me a tin full every Christmas. I make them year round, but there is something special about eating them in front of the Christmas tree.

  47. I’d have to say fudge. Or I’m going to try making Baklava this year, which could turn out to be my favorite. Thanks for the chance to win!

  49. My favorite holiday recipe would have to be Peanut Blossoms. They’re my all-time favorite Christmas cookie. It doesn’t feel like Christmas-time unless I’ve made a batch, or two, or three.

  50. My grandmother’s Fruitcake cookies….though they are nothing like fruitcake. I use to sit and help her cut and mix them as a child over 50 years ago…not Christmas without them

  51. Hands down, my grandma’s recipe for Chinese Chews. They are the most amazing cookie I have ever eaten/baked in my life. YUM.

  52. My favorite holiday recipe it roasted brussel sprouts and squash with some bacon and parm cheese. Top it with a poached egg and it is sooo good.

  53. I love making a spinach-cheddar-bacon quiche for Christmas brunch. The fam snacks on it all day to tide them over till Christmas dinner!

  54. My favorite holiday recipe is Yorkshire pudding/popovers. It’s a family tradition, and I always end up eating about a million of them. Light and fluffy = healthy, right?

  55. M & M cookie bars, a wonderful recipe we have been making each year for more than 20 years. It came from a friend, many years ago..

  56. Hm.. I don’t have a favorite holiday recipe. Although I just started baking these awesome peppermint crunch cookies and have already made 5 batches within the last few weeks! I have a feeling it will become a tradition!

  57. ANYthing with peppermint …but right now all of your 30 cookies are looking pretty good! We particularly liked the Chocolate Mint cookies…

  58. My favorite recipe is Spaghetti every Christmas Eve family and friends gather at my house and we celebrate with a spaghetti dinner PS I am following you on pintrist

  60. I think I have 2 favorite recipes: gingerbread cutout cookies (a recipe from my sister-in-law’s mother), and chocolate Andes mint cookies. I give them away as gifts and people look forward to the holidays because of ’em!

  61. My favorite Christmas recipe is a special shrimp dip that my grandma created. It reminds us of her and its delicious!

  62. My favourite recipe is for Eggnog Cupcakes. I use a basic vanilla cake recipe and substitute egg nog for the milk in the recipe. It tastes best with homemade eggnog, but store-bought eggnog will do in a pinch. Fast, easy, and gets rave reviews.

  63. My favorite holiday recipe is something my family calls Oklahoma brunch. We eat it once a year on Christmas morning. It’s a breakfast casserole with eggs, cheese, and ham in it. I look forward to it all year!
