I am so excited I can hardly stand it!!! Recently I entered a recipe in a Healthy Holiday Recipe Contest sponsored by Lake Regional Hospital….and I WON! Oh my goodness, I won a Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer!!! The winning recipe was my Cranberry Kale Salad with Roasted Garlic Dressing.
The reason I write this blog is to share healthy recipes and also to motivate myself to continue making, creating and trying new healthy recipes and foods. It was just by chance that I entered this recipe into this contest. It’s exciting just to be recognized for a great recipe. But to actually win a prize is so exciting! We had a little photo shoot with Chef Mike Jones, who recreated the recipe and it’s going to be featured in Lake Lifestyles Magazine. Eeeek!
I have to be honest this is not my first Kitchen Aid Mixer. I acquired my first mixer when I was 15 years old. Yes, you read that correctly. At the age of 15 I was asking for a mixer, not designer jeans or spending cash but rather a mixer. What a fantastic day that was….well I still have that lovely mixer. And let me tell you those mixers last a LONG time! I don’t need to tell you how LONG ago that was but just trust me we are talking dangerously close to two decades old!! Oh my heavens!
Sooooo, YES it is time for a fresh new mixer to grace my kitchen! I can’t wait to get this out of the box and start working on some great recipes! I recently decided that I should be making all of my own bread and this Kitchen Aid is going to be perfect!!!!
Do you have one of these awesome mixers? What is your favorite thing to make in your Kitchen Aid?
