2014-K Aid Giveaway (ENDED)


I am extremely excited for this giveaway as it celebrates my one year of blogging. Yay. I cannot believe a year flew by already. Though this is only a hobby for me, it’s with great pleasure I share with you my favorite recipes and those I create. I am so thankful for all the wonderful comments either on the blog or the social networks. They mean so much to me. Those of you that have e-mailed me with your favorite recipes so I can put on the blog- THANK YOU!. I appreciate all of the tips, advice, and ideas on how to make my blog one that is more efficient, useful and enjoyable. I truly appreciate ALL of the feedback. (The blog is growing like a weed and I am so humbled and amazed.)

OK to the giveaway, I absolutely love a hand blender. I use it ALL the time and thought it would be a nice treat for one of my readers to enjoy this blender as well. It’s a great tool to have in the kitchen. I use it with just about all of my blending. Here are some of the things you can do with it; smoothies, sauces, baby food, ice, Frappes, Salsa, graham crackers, nuts and the list goes on. Endless possibilities.


This Kitchen Aid Architect Series has a 5-speed stick with an 8-inch blending arm that will reach into deep pots. The Blade Assemblies are easily interchangeable. There is even a storage box for all the blades.  Oh yes, please..

    My must have gadget, that I use daily is a lemon squeezer. I use it when I wake up for my lemon & honey drink, and then throughout the day when preparing my meals. I love it and I actually have 3! LOL

    Wow! That’s a nice piece to have in the kitchen of a person that’s spending a lot of time in the kitchen . I absolutely love my vitamix that we have. Use it for tomato sauce, smoothies, blending yogurt with fruit for Popsicle molds…make butter in it too.

    • admin 09/08/2014, 7:59 am

      MMMM. Homemade butter, now that sounds great!. Good job.

  • Tanya 09/03/2014, 8:42 pm

    Your site is amazing! Good job putting it together. And happy 1 year.
    I’d have to say my favorite appliance would be the kitchen aid stand mixer. Maybe it’s due to the fact that I love baking so much. But I’ve been looking into getting a food processor but am not sure which one to get. This gadget giveaway seems so neat. Seems like it would save so much counter space and is versatile. I’d love to win one. 🙂

    • admin 09/08/2014, 7:50 am

      Thank you for your lovely compliment. I am like you, I LOVE to bake and am so grateful i have a kitchen aid, so helpful when baking.

  • Yelena G 09/03/2014, 8:25 pm

    My favorite kitchen gadget is my kitchen aid mixer. I have always wanted to try a hand blender, it would be so much easier than transferring hot soups into my big blender and making a big mess. Thanks for the giveaway, I always enjoy reading your posts.

    • Yelena G 09/03/2014, 8:27 pm

      P.S. Do you have a white kitchen? We are building a new house and i have been looking at the white kitchens. How do you like it with kids? Does it get dirty pretty fast?

      • admin 09/08/2014, 7:49 am

        We built our home too. As i was attending school for interior design I felt in love with the look of a light kitchen. Since we already had a kitchen upstairs I used the cream color downstairs. This is where I entertain guests most. I LOVE my kitchen color. It’s easy to clean and I like it better than my dark color upstairs. We have off white cabinets and dark chocolate counter tops. Then I have a bar/island that is dark chocolate cabinets with cream tile pieces instead of counter tops. Dark colors attract dirt more than the lighter one. Would definitely recommend it.
        How exciting that you are building. It’s such a LONG process but amazing when you finish. Everything is the way you like it. Enjoy your new home. :O)

    • admin 09/08/2014, 7:58 am

      As much as I love my Kitchen Aid Mixer, I use the hand blender much more. It’s so much easier to work with. 🙂

  • Susan 09/03/2014, 7:19 pm

    I’ve bought a cheap version of this set before at Ross and LOVED it! Pretty much used it every day for cooking. Until it broke. (That’s what you get for buying cheap! Haha) So it would be awesome to win.

  • Mirachka 09/03/2014, 8:16 pm

    Happy 1 year Anniversary !! Thank you for sharing great recipe. I love my kitchen Aid mixer . Would live to win this 🙂 God Bless You .

    • admin 09/08/2014, 7:57 am

      Thank you:). Love that Kitchen Aid too:)

  • Ana 09/03/2014, 8:07 pm

    I’ve wanted one of these for a while now. Would like to see how it works for myself, since everyone is raving about it.
    My favorite gadget is my 6 sided grater! I use freshly grated cheese on almost everything. 🙂

    • admin 09/08/2014, 7:57 am

      Hmm. Never saw a 6 sided grater. Gatta look into that. Sounds awesome.

  • Oksana 09/03/2014, 7:55 pm

    Thanks for the giveaway. I love my food processor at this very moment in my kitchen. Has helped me a tone with speeding up to make my meals. Can’t wait to try this new feature.

  • Olesya 09/03/2014, 7:50 pm

    I honestly don’t have any small appliances. My smallest is my blender. I do love it because it blends good and use it daily. I would love this giveaway as I’ve kept my on hand blenders for a while but never gave it a try. It would help with making baby food come March 2015 🙂 Also this is my first time visiting this blog. All the food looks good and I can’t wait to try out some of the recipes.

    • admin 09/08/2014, 7:56 am

    • admin 09/08/2014, 7:54 am

      It is nice to have something that will chop for decor on cakes. Love to bake too:).

    hi Valentina,
    I love your blog and have done many meals with your recipes! My favorite kitchen gadget right now is the big blender. Actually, I use it to puree food for my baby, and blend other stuff for my meals. I have always wanted to get myself the small stick blender to puree baby food with, but have been putting it off. And today when I saw this giveaway, my heart jumped! hahaha Im so excited and would love to win this giveaway!!! It would be the most used in my kitchen 🙂

    • admin 09/08/2014, 7:52 am
