    Pumpkin shortbread! I’ve been moving and haven’t been able to bake at all, so I’ve been missing out on all the seasonal pumpkin fun.

  2. John

    My wife just discovered that she has Celiac Disease. The first thing I would make with a new KitchenAid mixer is gluten-free versions of her favorite breads.

  3. Donna

    Chocolate chip cookie dough. Then stuff the middles w/oreos, nutter butters, & brownie bites. My kids have been eyeing your site with me & are dying to make the oreo stuffed chocolate chip cookie. Yummy

  4. Michelle

    Bread! I’ll have to find just the right recipe, but I’ve been practically dreaming about making bread lately.

  5. Sue Welsh

    A big batch of homemade whoppie pies….lots of them for all the family and friends. I even search and put them in the wax paper bags just like my grandmother did when I was so young!

  6. Caitlin

    I would make anything pumpkin flavored! Cupcakes, bread, muffins, you name it. I’m loving the fall weather and the fall cooking! 🙂

  7. I’d definitely go for bread. Can’t do that right now because my mixer. Well, don’t talk about that. Bread’s heavy and this one’s perfect for it!

  8. Krista

    Sugar cookies! No, bread! No, wait! Ummm– meringue! No–my great-grandmother’s seven-minute icing! No…actually, it would be my Latvian Grandma’s ‘pipparkukas’, like German pfefferkuchen, like American gingerbread cookies but spicier and richer and with a snap of flavor and texture what comes from a super-stiff dough that you age for a month. Ohhhh yeah baby. Man garsho pipparkuukas!

  9. Jana

    Cookies, no doubt about that. At work I’m known as the Cookie Fairy because I bring cookies for everybody on Mondays. I hope they never find out that I benefit just as much from this… every cookie someone else eats won’t end up on my hips. 😉

  10. Stefani

    SO EXCITED about this giveaway! i’ve been dying to make homemade pizza, so i’d definitely use the dough hook to make pizza dough!

  11. Patricia Sowell

    The first thing I am going to make is pumpkin bread for the start of my holiday baking. I like to start making it the 1st. of November because every year my list expands. Thanks Patricia

  12. Chad Hancock

    I am definitely going to make the oreo and peanut butter brownie cakes you posted a few weeks ago. They are by far the tastiest looking thing I’ve ever seen, but I haven’t been able to make them yet because I don’t have a mixer. 🙁

    Keep up the great work!

  13. Christine

    I will definitely make a Japanese-style cheesecake! The recipe requires beating egg whites to form high peaks, so this would save my arm from going numb as it usually does from holding a hand mixer for too long! 😛

  14. Amy K

    That most certainly is a beauty! The first thing I would make would be caramel bars, then our family’s favorite fluffy mashed potatoes. Thanks for the chance to win.

  15. Pumpkin streusel cake! I’ve been dying to try making it recently… perhaps it will be a failure, but all the pumpkins in my grocery store are calling to me!

  16. Danielle

    My dad has been in and out of hospitals since Feb and very ill forcing him to eat a lot of bad hospital food. The first thing I would make is his favorite lemon meringue pie. He needs a pick me up! And I need to learn to make a good meringue!

    1. debbie arnold

      the first thing I would make would be my grandmothers recipe for squash mashed potatoes. yummmm thankyou sooo much

  17. Lindsay

    The first thing I would make with this GORGEOUS stand mixer is a batch of my cinnamon rolls. They fill my current 5-quart to the brim, so it would be fun to relish all that extra space!

  18. Nichole

    My kitchen helpers (6 children) and I would definitely make a double ( or triple?!) batch of chocolate chip cookies. We would bake half of the cookies and freeze the other half of the dough. We go through cookies quickly at our house. Having cookie dough waiting in the freezer is a big help. My current mixer does not have a big enough bowl for double batches of some things.

  19. wow that is a beautiful mixer 🙂
    I think I would make a pavlova.
    I actually have never made one before but if I had a mixer it would be super duper easy 🙂

    Then I would just keep on baking just for an excuse to use it, hehe 😀

  20. What a beauty this is. I have to say the first thing I would make would be your Cinnamon Roll Pumpkin Vanilla Sheet Cake. This cake went on my to try list the moment I saw it. It looks wonderful. I want to make this for Halloween for our office luncheon. Thank you for the opportunity. I love your blog, it’s one of my favorites.

  21. Marianne

    I would make gluten free bread for my son and many other recipes that are gluten free, maybe pasta??n Thanks for the opportunity!!!

  22. Marie

    Cupcakes of course:) I bake every friday for my hubby and the other soldiers he works with we call it cupcake friday:) I would love this it is so PRETTY!

  23. BethAnn

    Probably cupcakes, or cookies, or bread, or muffins or all of the above. My current mixer is on its last legs, which stresses me out every time I bake.

  24. I would make FRUIT CAKE!!!!!!! Christmas is less than 60 days away and I can experiment with different flavours and variations

    A hand mixer doesn’t do fruit cake any justice. I know this because I broke a hand mixer once trying to mix the fruit. A Big stand mixer such as this would definitely manage the load 😉 And I will send you small fruit cakes if I win 🙂

  25. Katie

    I would make your Chocolate Chip and Peanut Butter Truffle Swirled Cookies – because I’ve made them multiple times now and everybody loves them!

  26. Lisa

    oh my god, I was over kitchen aid because they couldn’t handle bread dough and I’m a big bread maker, but way for them to bring their A game. This is amazing. phew, I’m so psyched right now.
    I would make my family’s wheat rolls recipe. delicious.

  27. Bonnie

    Wow, what a giveaway! So many possibilities for this mixer’s first use 🙂 I think I’d have to make my family’s homemade bread!

  28. Olivia

    I would bake a pumpkin spice cake recipe I found…but I need a mixer for it! When you’re 23 and just starting out you dont have all the necessary baking tools!

  29. Venus Leidy

    The first thing I would make is a chocolate cake! I enter a special chocolate cake in my county fair every year. I’ve won twice. I try a new recipe every year, and my husband loves to be the “tester”. He insists on testing the recipe often!

  30. Erin F.

    I would so make banana bread – this would make my Christmas tradition a much more pleasant experience. I almost bought one last year for my Birthday, but I relinquished my rights as I put the money into my husband’s new soundboard for his guitar instead. He owes me now 🙂

  31. Jenna

    A well-mixed batch of cookies. Mine haven’t been the same my old roommate owned our mixer and took it with her when we moved out.

  32. Elizabeth Miracle

    most likely the first thing i will make is bread. maybe cinnamon rolls! i would be in heaven with this mixer!!

  33. Lindsay

    The first thing I would make would probably be pizza dough, because my family has a tradition of pizza Fridays! Or, if I could wait, I would wait to use it for Christmas cookies with my mom.

  34. Lanna J.

    Four years ago when my husband and I got engaged, I registered for one of these babies. Excited, a few weeks later, my registry showed that someone had bought it for us! Showers came and went, the wedding came and went. No mixer. Perhaps it was a mistake, but now every time I see a recipe that suggests the KitchenAid mixer I get a little twinge. So, the first thing I would make would be a celebratory dessert. Perhaps a cream cheese pound cake or deep dish brownies!

  35. Katie Rose

    I think that nearly all of my new kitchen things have been first christened with either Chocolate Chip Cookies, or Chocolate Chip Banana Bread. I think it is a safe bet that one of these is what I would make first.

  36. Laura Liss-Tabor

    The first thing I would do is demo my holiday cookie recipes on this beautiful new machine. This appliance would make my holiday baking a breeze and I could finally make some bread!

  37. Bethany

    My chocolate pie! It used to take me FOREVER with a hand mixer, until I discovered the wonder that is the KitchenAid mixer!

  38. Georgianna

    I would make batches and batches of my favorite Christmas cookies! It’s never too early to start celebrating!

  39. Misty L

    AHHH!!! What an exciting giveaway! The first thing I will make is your Oreo Fluffer cupcakes for my son’s 3rd birthday! Sugar coma, here we come! =)

  40. Carolyn

    I make all the bread that my family eats so my old mixer gets A LOT of use. So the first thing I would make is homemade 100% whole wheat bread. Yum!

  41. Sarah

    I think my heart just skipped a beat when I saw this! Gorgeous!

    The first thing I would make is a Peanut Butter Cheesecake, for my husband’s birthday.

  42. Christina Balsom

    Oh chocolate mousse cake, the five eggs in it need a long beating time ( my arm almost fell off last time I made it).

  43. I can’t even begin to tell you all the wonderful things I’d make. I might have to start with some bread, though. There’s nothing better than homemade bread.

  44. Alisa

    I would make my mom’s Cowboy Cookies! They have a ton of ingredients and i broke my hand mixer making them once, so now I can only make them if i have access to a kitchenaid!

  45. Tami

    Oh wow,, I can’t tell you how long I have wanted one of these mixers. The very first thing I would make would be my families favorite cinnamon rolls. Batches and Batches of cinnamon rolls.

  46. jordan

    the first thing i would make is your cinnamon roll pumpkin vanilla sheet cake! i’ve been drooling over it since you posted it! can’t wait to try it 🙂

  47. Hilary

    I would absolutely make a big batch of buttercream frosting!! That is something I haven’t really been up to doing with my little handheld mixer!

  48. If I win, I plan on giving this to my mother…she’s wanted one of these for years, but it’s totally out of her budget. I’d hope we could make chocolate chip cookies together. Something reminiscent from my childhood with her.

  49. Mim

    I would have to make my “love” cookies. That’s what my boys and husband named my chocolate chip & peanut butter chip cookies. :0)

  50. Mitra

    I would make bread! My mom makes some yummy sweet bread. She finally gave me the recipe for it now that I’m away at college so I can make it myself. 🙂

  51. Annegirrl

    After I wipe up the drool from looking at that beautiful mixer, I would have to make a batch of chocolate chip cookies. There is nothing like a batch of fresh-from-the-oven, homemade chocolate chip cookies in my opinion.

  52. Carrie

    I will make a cake, because my husband is a cake fanatic!!! Then I will make cookies, bread, dough… I probably won’t leave it alone for a few weeks!

  53. Shelly

    Cupcakes….with homemade frosting!!!!! We own a pizzeria and I make cupcakes weekly – with a hand mixer. 🙁 I would be sooooo nice to get a KitchenAid Mixer. I have dreamt of having one….over and over and over. It’s just not in the cards as an expense right now….so winning won would be super fantastic!!!!

  54. Tonya T.

    I would make bread, and then cookies, then a cake, and then I’d tell my mom that her potato mashing for the family (25+) this holiday season just got a whole lot easier!

  55. Connie Taylor

    The very first thing I would make is a ginormous batch of chocolate chip cookies! Or possibly something pumpkin related. Or bread. Or a giant bowl of mashed potatoes. Well, whatever I make, it will obviously be carb loaded! lol ;o)

  56. courtney

    something festive like mashed sweet potato’s or christmas cookies… i also have seen a pasta making attachment you can get. Always wanted to try making my own pasta!

  57. Kim

    I would make Dirt. I know, it’s not that exciting, but it won’t all fit in the KitchenAid stand mixer I have now — the stuff sloshes out everywhere even with one of those guard things. And I miss being able to make it… :o(

  58. Laura

    My mother-in-law’s DIVINE rolls. The recipe is way too big for my current mixer and would work beautifully in this beast. 🙂

  59. cassie

    RED would be my choice & I would make batches of holiday cookies! YUM & no more electric hand mixer would be nice.

  60. Susan Stuber

    I would start with dinner rolls or home-made pretzels, then cookies, & anything else my family would like. My Kithenaid hand mixer that my Dad bought for me when I first got married….21 years ago just died. They no longer make that model so there is no hope for repair or replacement. A nice mixer like this one….would definintely make such a difference in holiday meal preparations and everyday meals. I love my Kitchenaid appliances and think they are so very worth the cost.

  61. Yvonne B

    The first thing I’d make is some kind of dessert. Cookies, brownies, cake, maybe a cheesecake. After that I’d have to try some bread.

  62. Jolene Beard

    I want to make some cookies! Maybe pumpkin, maybe ginger cookies. I’m sure I won’t have any trouble finding something to make with it!

  63. Sarah

    Those pumpkin cinnamon roll bars that you posted a few days ago. OMG I’m making them whether I win this mixer or not but I really hope I win! Love red and it would match my kitchen perfectly 🙂

  64. So exciting!!!! I will probably make a cheesecake. It’s been awhile and I am craving a mocha cheesecake that is DELICIOUS! Thanks so much for the chance! ~j

  65. Hannah

    I would make Gingersnap crumble cupcakes! I’ve been dying to try them and the season for gingerbread is approaching 🙂

  66. WOW!!!!! I would totally make 4 or 8 loaves of bread at one time! I feel like my little Kitchen Aid mixer is struggling with just 2! I wanna win I wanna win I wanna win 🙂 (thanks for the chance!)

  67. Gina

    Meringue! I make a butterscotch pie (or try to make a butterscotch pie…) and it needs meringue to top it and I am terrible. No patience for that process. I NEED this mixer. So much.

  68. Brittany N

    Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies!

    Then pumpkin bread, then pumpkin cupcakes, then pumpkin muffins…. Tis the season!

  69. Lindsay

    Olala! I’d make my mom’s famous caramel cake with this mixer! My family LOVES her cake but it’s a rare treat. This mixer will inspire me to get my bootay in the kitchen!

  70. Marlys Shomber-Jones

    The first thing I will make is a big old batch of cinnamon rolls. I have always wanted a Kitchenaide but could never afford one. I hope I win. !!!!!!

  71. Sonnet

    I have been wanting a KitchenAid mixer my whole life. I think the first thing I would make if I had one was a batch of sugar cookies. Then bread dough!

  72. Krista

    I would make something that requires meringue. I hate beating those stupid egg whites with a hand maker. My arms are getting tired just thinking about it.

  73. Jeanna

    Oh, I would make some good old chocolate chip cookies from scratch of course! Then I would gain 50 pounds trying out all the desert recipes I see on the blogs/pintrest!! YUM!

  74. Ellen

    I’d make a classic treat like chocolate chip cookies and oatmeal raisin cookies. Then I’d make some delicious english muffin bread, something my mom and grandma always make.

  75. Casey

    Beautiful! The first thing I ever made with a kitchenaid mixer was chocolate chip cookies with my mom as a little girl – might as well try that recipe out again!

  76. Lauren W

    My mom’s chocolate chip cookies so that I can make plenty to share and still have enough for our household!

  77. What an awesome giveaway!! What would I make? Bread. Bread, bread, bread. I love the process of making bread and my recipe (that I often cut in half) makes two loaves. I would make three though if I had a Kitchenaid. Three because I have three pans. I would be nice to sometimes let the machine do the work especially when I’m short on blocks of time, which I’m finding is quite often with an exclusively breastfed 5-month-old.

  78. Krystal

    I’d make sugar cookies and royal icing! I’ve been making these all with my hand mixer and a kitchen aid would make things sooooo much easier!

  79. I would make our family’s secret chocolate chip cookie recipe! Those cookies are to die for!!!!! I would love, love, love to win this mixer!

  80. Bread, cookies and brownies all in the same day because I wouldn’t be able to decide and would just want to make everything I could with this new wonderful addition! Fantastic giveaway! Thanks!

  81. Mary Elizabeth

    I would make funfetti cake right away, because it takes me back to my childhood memories. Then I would experiment and go for something fall.

  82. Ginny

    I have been dreaming of a KitchenAid mixer since our wedding day. Then we moved into a house and the need/want grew exponentially!

    Considering the time of year, I would make Spiced Oatmeal Chocolate Cookies. I wish I could say these were my own creation, but they are stolen from another fabulous blog. But they are DELICIOUS and a fall/festive staple in our home. *They are also kinda healthy too if people are into that kind of thing…

  83. Janelle

    First thing I’d make? Hmmmm…I’m not sure. My kitchen-aid is something I don’t use super often (I’m not a cookie person), but if I don’t need it, I sure miss it. It’s invaluable to have around. I just made some pumpkin bread yesterday, and it’s on my mind, so maybe just another batch of that.

  84. Linda Franks

    The first thing I would make is a Holiday Pumpkin cheesecake! Perfect for either Thanksgiving or Christmas! Yum! Thanks for the opportunity to enter!

  85. jessica b

    I would make the bun recipe that I got from my Grandma. I have always wanted a mixer, but can’t spend that much on a kitchen gadget.

  86. Brittani T.

    I would make something with pumpkin or a cake or I don’t know. I would probably spend my entire day in the kitchen baking 🙂

  87. shawna farris

    Pizza dough, bread, a big chocolate cake for my family because I would be so happy I finally had a Kitchen Aid!!

  88. First I’ll make a huge batch of garlic mashed potatoes for Thanksgiving and then I’ll bake some red velvet cookies. Yum!! Fabulous giveaway!

  89. zoe

    i would make brownies with peanut butter first, then delicious iced pumpkin cookies, and then maybe the mini-oreo stuffed chocolate chip cookies. being in law school is stressful and baking really helps with that stress so having a new kitchenaid would help relieve stress and keep my friends well fed 🙂

  90. Kelly Hie

    I have nothing specfic other then alot of cakes, and cookies from recipes on Picky Palate of course…actually love your stuff.

  91. Carissa

    Cinnamon rolls! My current Kitchenaid is too small and the dough always creeps up the bread hook. I need more room!

  92. Pam

    Cookies although I might buy the meat grinder attachment and grind up some chicken. I LOVE chicken burgers that aren’t breaded and can’t find them where I live. I’ve ground up chicken in a processor but it was a mess.

  93. Martha in MS

    I think a good homemade pound cake. I been wanting to try some different ones. It takes a good mixer to make the batter and that new mixer would certainly do the job. Its a beauty.

  94. Sonya

    I would LOVE to win this. I received my first KitchenAid mixer for my high school graduation (I know! Cook much?) and that was 17 years ago!!! It’s still going strong, but I’d love to have the new bowl with a handle and all the power! I’d make some killer foccacia and pizza dough!!!

  95. Jen C.

    I’m on a caramel kick right now so chocolate cupcakes with salted caramel buttercream frosting . . . mmmmmm . . . drool . . .

  96. Laura

    What would I make? Seriously this would be like the BEST DAY EVER so I would make EVERYTHING in my kitchen! But I have always wanted to make my own fondont so that would be high on the list too 😉

  97. Heather D.

    The first thing I will make in a new Kitchen Aid is whole wheat bread. The second thing will be soft pretzels and the third thing will be pumpkin bread. I want to do more bulk baking so a larger Kitchen Aid with a stronger motor is ideal.

    Thanks for the contest. 🙂

  98. Amber Che'

    I would make bread. I’ve been wanting to try homemade bread and having a new mixer would definitely inspire me to experiment 🙂

  99. Heather

    Cinnamon Roll Pumpkin Vanilla Sheet cake, of course! Looks so yummy and have been baking up a storm here thanks to your amazing recipes!!

  100. Amanda Keener

    How exciting is this!? I keep saying to myself “I need to start baking”! This would be the perfect start. I think the first thing I’d like to make would be a carrot cake or bread 🙂 (Here’s to hoping I win!)

  101. the first thing i will make with this beautiful machine is bread. it’s a work horse and can take and do so much!! i would have to make honey whole wheat bread. and then bourbon pumpkin cheesecake!!

  102. Carolinachef

    I will make a big batch of my favorite oatmeal cookes…the dough freezes up well and will make great Christmas presents. I would would love a new Kitchen Aid!!

  103. Kelli Sinclair

    I work at a school for juvenile delinquents and the last time I made them 7 dozen cookies it took me 4 hours, so I can’t wait to make them all sorts of cookies faster! 🙂

  104. Kari Christiansen

    I’ve just started up my custom baking business and cupcakes seem to the be the popular orders of the day. Since it’s autumn season it will probably be some yummy carrot cake cupcakes or pumpkin spice cupcakes.

  105. Heather Halliday

    Oh gosh, so many choices! I think I would first make something with the “fall” spirit! Probably pumpkin bread!

  106. Laura B.

    Pumpkin Scones! Or Pumpkin Pies…or Choc Chip Cookies…or since my daughter just bought herself a new cupcake cookbook, maybe I’ll have her whip up one of the cool recipes in there!

  107. Jo

    I’d be making chocolate chip cookies! I want to try a stuffed cookie with some of the halloween chocolate my girls will be getting.

  108. I have been sitting here trying to decide what I would make…..pumpkin dip with ginger cookies; Cinnamon Roll Pumpkin Vanilla Sheet Cake; Lemon Tea Loaf;

  109. Amy A.

    I would make anything my 6 yr old son wanted to make. He’s wanted to be a chef since he was 3 and is always up for making something new!

  110. Dani Motruk

    I love it! I would make chocolate zucchini brownies! I’ve been dying to make them since I found the recipe!!

  111. Katie

    Zucchini bread! I make it once a year but i make about 7 loafs so this would be FANTASTIC! Not to mention it would pretty much fit in that one bowl. less mess! <3

  112. Angie

    I would give it to my daughter. She just got married and has wanted one forever! So not sure what the first thing she would make but hope it would be for me:)

  113. Kristina

    My older brother’s birthday is coming up, so probably his birthday cake! Chocolate with peppermint buttercream between the layers and peppermint chocolate ganache for the outside. His favorite.

  114. Pam Wolfson

    Hard to choose the first thing – but for sure it will be something from Picky Palette 🙂 I’m sure it will be a cookie for my granddaughter!!!!

  115. ana

    The first thing i will make with my new mixer are chocolate chip cookies for my hubby and daughters! their favorite!!

  116. Sarah Smith

    I’m so excited about this mixer! I always double my cookie recipes, and I need a bigger mixer! I would make cookies for sure! How awesome would this mixer be for mixing all those Christmas Cookies?? Love it! 🙂

  117. Laurel

    I would make my grandma’s M&M cookies! It’s an old recipe that we make sure to make at least once a year! She passed before I was born, but I love useing her recipes and thinking about how she would be in life 🙂

  118. Mary

    The first thing I will make is a chocolate raspberry layered cake with raspberry buttercream! I was going to say the cinnamon roll pumpkin vanilla sheet cake you posted the other day, but I can’t wait that long! I am making that this weekend! 🙂

  119. I would make a large batch of cake pops! I am tryning to learn new things because by far I can not cook but I am trying..this would be great and the red is ssooo hot!

  120. kolbi

    I am totally dying to try your Cinnamon Roll Pumpkin Vanilla Sheet Cake, it’d hands down be the first thing i try.

  121. Melissa C.

    I cannot wait to make your newest posted recipe….cinnamin roll pumpkin vanilla sheet cake! It looks soooooo yummy. Would LOVE to win this, it would make making all your yummy recipes sooooo much easier to make. I only have a bowl and wooden spoon ;0)

  122. That mixer looks beautiful!!!

    The first thing I will make with that mixer is a huge amount of candy corn shaped sugar cookies for a pumpkin carving contest me and my friends have organized. Along with rice crispy treats colored orange and shaped into pumpkins

  123. Erin Burris

    That is a hard decision to make…..but since I am pregnant and have been craving sugar cookies with icing on them I would probably have to go with that but don’t get me wrong chocolate chip cookies and peanut butter cookies are right on top of the list as well!

  124. Shona Parker

    My famous Sweet Potato Bread!!! With this baby I can crank out 5 or 6 loaves at a time and not have to clean my walls and cabinets off where half of the mix splattered because of my hand mixer! =)

  125. Karen in Brookville

    My 13 year old will make us chocolate chip cookies. In the last month, his love for baking has increased… and so has my waist 🙂

  126. Sharon McDonald

    The first thing I would make with the mixer would be a pig picking cake. I love this cake and haven’t had one in a while.

  127. Rachel Jefferson

    The very first thing I would make is my grandmother’s 7-up cake. It was the first cake I learned to bake as a kid and whenever I am feeling homesick and miss her (she lives in New Orleans and I am in Houston) I bake one. It’s such a simple cake, but means more to me than any fancy hi-fa-lootin’ dessert. 🙂

  128. Angie

    What a fantastic giveaway! I would go on a bread making frenzy! Pumpkin, banana, zucchini….. My husband would be overjoyed!

  129. Sarah Burnett

    If I won the kitchenaid, the first thing I would make would be molasses cookie. I love cookies any kind, but molasses cookies I could eat all day. Yum!

  130. Christina Karr

    I have just found out we all need to eat gluten free and I have arthritis and cant use a regular mixer so this would be amazing since I need to make a lot from scratch! With two little kids our first would be cookies for sure 🙂

  131. Maureen Dever

    The first thing I would make with the kitchen aide mixer would be Picky-palate’s double chocolate pumpkin cake with pumpkin buttercream frosting- YUM!

  132. What a beautiful mixer!!! I’m currently in the process of planning a surprise 30th anniversary party for my in laws, so I would make their favorite fall treat for the party, pumpkin crumb bars! Amongst the many other tasty treats I’m planning on serving up!

  133. Melissa

    I would make a huge batch of soft pretzels! So great on cool fall days! {P.S. So happy I found your site. My family thanks you! XOXO}

  134. Angie

    Cheesecake Filled Pumpkin Cupcakes with a Brown Sugar Frosting. Oh, or maybe some apple cider doughnuts. Hmmm but then I have been meaning to bake some more bread… There are too many goodies I want to make and definatly not enough time to make them all. I really believe I would be happy just baking ALL day. Now, just need to find someone to clean up after me!

  135. Heather Lockmanese

    The first thing I would make in this new mixer would be my pumpkin chocolate chip bread! So yummy for fall

  136. Lizzie D

    Oh my, that’s beautiful! Thank you for this giveaway! First thing I’d make is a HUGE batch of your brownie chunk cookies! I love those, and it seems so much easier to distribute the chunks around in a mixer.

  137. Rachel Kurzweil

    I would attempt to make donuts from scratch. Apple cider ones to by exact. I tried last weekend w/ a standard mixer=FAIL. Everyone was disappointed!

  138. Pumpkin snickerdoodle cookies and pumpkin muffins with buttercream topping. And of course all those Christmas baking projects I have coming up!

    Thanks for the opportunity!

  139. Billye Johnson

    In keeping with my new approach to healthy eating and living, I’ll make my (yes these are very healthy) oatmeal cherry chocolate almond cookies. Low fat, high fiber and yummy stuff. What could be better?

  140. Anissa

    I would make anything pumpkin flavored! Pumpkin cookies, pumpkin bread, etc! Its my all-time favorite ingredient during the Fall months. 🙂

  141. Carrie Ann

    I would most DEF be aking the new pumpkin cinnamon roll vanilla cake you just posted! It looks and sounds absolutely DELICIOUS! =)

  142. Rachel

    A birthday cake for my niece! I’ve been practicing with different kinds of icing and a mixer like this would be wonderful!

  143. Bethany Alford

    OMG! I have always wanted one of these! I love to bake everything! The very first thing I would make would be a french vanilla cake with butter cream frosting! I mix everything by hand now and this would make baking go by faster so I could bake MORE!!!!

    Bethany Alford

  144. Shandi Alegre

    Ive been wanting one of these forever! The first thing I would probably make is one of your cookie recipes!

  145. Andrea

    Would love to have a red one for my kitchen, to brighten it up. Thanksgiving is coming and would love to start the tradition of cooking with my 6 year old daughter with our new mixer. Picky Palate has wonderful dessert to make for our family for Thanksgiving. Kristin loves cooking more than candy…but she does get to eat her creations. thanks

  146. Stephanie Panach

    What is the first thing you will make with your new KitchenAid? Yummy butter cookies for decorating!

  147. Karen

    I would love to make several loaves at one time so homemade bread would be my first project with the KitchenAid.

  148. Kelsey Williams

    Orange Creamsicle Cookies (Your ice cream cookies with a little twist). The cold weather is coming in so a summer reminder would be a good pick me up!

  149. Cat

    Seeing as our oven has been broken for more than two months and will soon be fixed, I am having a REALLY hard time deciding what would be the FIRST thing I would make. Oreo stuffed chocolate chip cookies? Perhaps a bread of some kind…there are too many choices!

  150. Melanie Peak

    Well with 5 little ones i’m not sure whose fav. I will make first!!! Probably a little of EVERYTHING!!! :)Our kids love to help make anything 🙂 Thanks for the chance to win this great product!!!!

  153. Janelle S

    I would make soft pretzels! I just made some by hand, even though I had a recipe calling for a stand mixer.

  154. Kelli

    The holiday’s are coming up so it will be great to help me make all my candies. Peanut Butter Balls, Cookies, coconut balls, etc…

  155. Matt Seattle

    CocoNut macaroons. It’s one of the few cookies I’ve found that require a mixer which makes them impossible for me!

  156. Maria

  157. Karen Lehmann

  159. Beth Wolfswinkel

    Homemade buns! I have a great recipe that makes rolls or cinnamon rolls and I make them weekly for my family!

  160. doreen

    My new favorite Carrot/Pinapple/Banana Cake or Cupcakes – with Cream Cheese frosting. I love this recipe because you can really make it your own by adding nut, raisens soaked in rum, toasted coconut or just make it plain…It always comes out moist and delicious!!! 🙂

  161. Lara S

    Having something so new & Fabulous it deserves to have something great for it’s first time in use – so I’d make something great like Cinnamon Rolls or Cinnamon Bread – yum!

  162. Melina S.

    I’m going to make homemade bread. TONS of it, and freeze it all so we always have some on hand. I’ve been dreaming of a kitchenaid for the entire ten years I’ve been married and I’ve never been lucky enough to have one!! I hope the random-choosy Gods are loving me this week!!:)

  163. Nikki Glidewell

    Let’s see I think I will make chocolate chip cookies & peanut butter cookies for my kids & amazing husband!!!!!

  164. Susan

    I will make the mini Oreo stuff chocolate chip cookies – The originals were so good, and I love mini desserts!

  165. Emily

    I would make toll house chocolate chip cookies! By the time I go to put in the end of the flour I can barely stir it and need my husbands help. I’d have a new husband in the kitchen if I had a Kitchen Aid Mixer 😉

  166. Stephanie

    The very first thing I would make with this mixer would be homemade bread. YUM! I would love to have a mixer like this. Baking is one of my most favorite things.

  167. Brianna Herber

    I live with three girls, and we’ve taken on the challenge of making epic birthday cakes for each other. If I won this mixer I would be kicking out some monster birthday cakes! They’re right at the end of this month too! Also, my other girl friend and I are starting a small at home bakery so this would be a tremendous help!!

  168. Kara Jones

    I would bake cupcakes with choolate flakes in the batter – then cup out the middle and fill it with thiss raspberry whip cream like filling topped with chocolate ganache, finished up with cream cheese icing garnished with a raspberry…mmm

  169. Bread…love being able to knead the bread in my mixer! And then Kentucky Pie…and the blueberry bread, and maybe some chocolate chip cookies!!!

  170. ARS

    Oooohhhh…. I would likely try my hand at something I’m too scared to make without a stand mixer, like a souffle.

  171. Kelly

    I would make christmas cookies. Since I give out cookies as presents, I need to sometimes make multiple batches. If I win, I’ll only have to make one batch!

  172. Katelyn Lloyd

    mmmm….where do I even start?? I really want to make your Cinnamon Roll Pumpkin Vanilla Sheet Cake, or anything else with pumpkin in it!

  173. Larissa

    The first thing I will make is the yummy cinnamon roll pumpkin vanilla sheet cake you posted. I shared it with all my friends. Though I have to confess I am making on this weekend but I will make another if I win.. 🙂

  174. Christina

    Hmm, There are so many things running through my mind that I would make but probabl the first thing would be the Double Chocolate Pumpkin Cake with Spiced Pumpkin Buttercream. I actually have the recipe on my fridge! Thanks for giving us the chance to win!

  175. cassielulu

    I would make my favorite red velvet cake batter and frosting and share it with my family, friends and colleagues.

  176. Cassie McBride

    I have wanted a mixer for YEARS!!! I would make a cake out of my brand new cake recipe book to celebrate!

  177. tonia maire

    red velvet cake 😉 and not the one that comes out of a box 🙂 then we could get started making our holiday baking and ornament making!

  178. Kirsten Grieser

    Your oreo-stuffed chocolate chip cookies, of course! My husband asks me for them almost daily.. I’m thinking about seeing if they will freeze well. 🙂
