{giveaway} KitchenAid Stand Mixer in Raspberry Ice

This past week has brought about more talk of cancer than I have ever discussed previously in my entire life.

It started when we celebrated with a family member who is in remission. Then, over the weekend we sat by the bed of another loved one who has undergone preventive surgery.

Lastly, it was only yesterday that we received news of another diagnosis in an immediate family member. That one hasn’t even begun to sink in yet.

We’ve all been touched by cancer in some way. Perhaps you’re standing with a dear one right now or in a battle of your own. It’s exhausting.

What to do? Certainly more than sink to the floor of the kitchen and stuff one’s face with baby animal crackers as I unashamedly did when I got the call.

I’ve had this giveaway planned for some time, only now it’s so very, very personal. Although the types of cancer we are dealing with are varied, breast cancer is one area where I had an opportunity to help. So I am.

With October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Simple Bites is proud to promote KitchenAid Canada’s Cook For The Cure Program. And there’s a stand mixer to be won.

Now that puts a smile on my face today. Read on for details.

KitchenAid Raspberry Ice Stand Mixer

Since 2002, over $2.3 million has been raised through the KitchenAid’s Cook for the Cure programs including 75-dollar donations to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation (CBCF) for every KitchenAid Raspberry Ice Stand Mixer sold (Model #KSM150AGBRI).

Also, for every purchase of a KitchenAid® pink small appliance or gadget, a contribution is remitted by KitchenAid® Canada to the Foundation.


As a lifelong fan of KitchenAid’s stand mixers, I can honestly say that daily life in the kitchen is about to change for one lucky reader…

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I’ve partnered with KitchenAid Canada to bring you an amazing giveaway. One Simple Bites reader will win a KitchenAid Architect Series Stand Mixer with Glass Bowl in Raspberry Ice with an estimated retail value of $549.99!

We’re talking a 325-watt heavy duty motor, sturdy all-metal construction, and a 5-Quart designer glass bowl with pouring spout and contoured handle.

Attachments include a burnished dough hook, flat beater and stainless steel wire whip, and its tilt-head design allows for clear access to the beater and bowl. Love that.

Here is a closer look at the KitchenAid Architect Series Stand Mixer with Glass Bowl in the beautiful Raspberry Ice colour.

    In October, I love to bake! After the summer, where baking consists of mainly cookies, or ‘no bake’ items, this time of year, I let loose! Apples, spices, nuts, and of course pumpkin are my favorite ingredients! My mom and I make a pumpkin roll, which is delicious (helped by the cream cheese icing-like filling)! Thanks for offering this contest, I have been following you on twitter for awhile, and am impressed daily by your talents! Amazing prize, by the way!
