KitchenAid Mixer Giveaway!

Right now, we're gonna take a break from the scheduled Vegan MoFo programing so that you have a chance to win my favorite piece of kitchen equipment. There are a lot of smallwares that are vital to baking: measuring cups & spoons, mixing bowls, a rolling pin, and a solid set of cake pans & pie tins for example. I made everything by hand for years. At some point I had a handheld mixer, but I broke it making too many batches of frosting. A KitchenAid mixer was never something I felt like I could splurge on, until I was lucky enough to have my partner give me one as a gift. It's still the best present I have ever received. It opened up my abilities to make all sorts of new things. I don't know if you have ever tried to make soft pretzels without a dough hook, but it's tiresome. And you get lumpy pretzels at best.

When Amanda of Little Lady Little City reached out to me about giving away a mixer as part of her blog's third anniversary, I knew I had to jump on the bandwagon. Just take a few minutes to check out all the rad ladies who are participating in the giveaway, and soon you can be making all the brioche & doughnuts your kitchen can handle. The ice cream attachment is also one of my favorite KitchenAid items. I have used it to make everything from strawberry lavender gelato to rocky road ice cream & cider poached pear sorbet!
The pasta attachment is next on my list. I have been dreaming about making noodles for a while. Homemade pasta makes the best spinach lasgana. I know, I know, I eat savory foods too. I just keep it to myself, because sweets are way more fun.
