THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED.

Can you believe that we’re celebrating 5 years of blogging here at Smells Like Home today?!  FIVE YEARS.  Five years of sharing my favorite recipes, kitchen adventures, and photos (if you want a laugh, check out the archives) with you.  Five years of reading your awesome comments and visiting so many of your own blogs.  Five years of watching the food blogging world change, of experiencing our main medium of communication change from a single platform to the explosion of social media.  Five years of meeting some incredible bloggers and forming bonds that have changed my life.  It’s been quite a ride.  An awesome, unforgettable, life-changing ride.

And for all of this, I want to thank you.  For sticking by me.  For encouraging me to challenging myself.  For posting your own recipes that have inspired me in the kitchen.  And since my KitchenAid stand mixer has been by my side throughout this entire ride, I’m giving away a brand-spanking new 6 quart KitchenAid bowl lift stand mixer this week.  It’s similar to my own but with a larger bowl and I know you’ll love it as much as I do.  Check out the entry rules below!

    Congrats on your success & milestone of 5 years. I would make fruited bread. My Kitchen Aid that served me well for 30 years ( I used to make custom wedding cakes and candies for many years) finally gave up the ghost two weeks ago and I am still in mourning. It survived Katrina but I guess even survivors die gracefully after a period of time.

    I would make cupcakes and other treats for my daughter’s 2nd birthday.

    Mexican Chocolate Butter Cookies. As of now, I can only make them with assistance because there’s so much adding ingredients while the mixer is running, so I have whatever friend/assistant I can wrangle to run the mixer while I make the additions. I probably still invite friends over to “help,” but now it will just be to help me eat the cookies. Cuz they’re amazing!

    Wheat bread! I love my current Kitchen Aid, but it is about 10 years old and small, it can’t handle the heavy flours that are in some of the grain/wheat breads I want to make. I would love this!

    I would make a Key Lime Pie with loads of beautiful meringue, or a dark chocolate cake with chocolate frosting and chocolate cream like I used to have for my birthday! Or maybe a pineapple upside down cake!

  • April 18, 2012 at 9:50 PM

    I have been baking and cooking since I was a little girl with my momma and just experienced working with yeast dough for the first time a week or two ago. My roommate has a stand mixer, but unfortunately I don’t. I have ALWAYS wanted one and if I won this giveaway I would make your homemade bagels to give yeast another try! Love your blog! Thanks so much!

  • Becky L
    April 19, 2012 at 2:20 AM

    Cream cheese frosting for sugar cookies. A stand mixer makes the most lovely frosting and it would be such a blessing to have one! 🙂 (P.S. I just found your blog– OH man.)

    If I would be so lucky, I’d consider it as my upcoming birthday present and would make a fabulous smooth double chocolate cake with icing to die for.

  • Cheryl Gattis
    April 19, 2012 at 5:35 AM

    I would make white divinity fudge. My grandmother made it when I was young and I was amazed as I watched her slowly pour a fine ribbon of hot syrup into a fluff of meringue in the bowl of her cool stand mixer, add walnuts and scoop it all back out into a buttered pan. Her divinity fudge melted in your mouth and no one in our family (or in a store bought version) has ever been able to come close to duplicating it. It was so light and fluffy – one of those treats that you savored yet wondered how it could be so light and so rich at the same time.

  • ali
    April 19, 2012 at 6:08 AM

    I would probably try some chrusciki (polish deep-fried cookies topped with powdered sugar)—one recipe I have for them has the batter being mixed for 10 minutes—not easy to do with a hand mixer! Thanks!

    Since I won’t be turning on my oven as much once it warms up, I would take advantage of last of spring and bake away! Probably some homemade wheat bread (so I can freeze extra loaves), and definitely some chocolate chip cookies 🙂

  • Corisa
    April 19, 2012 at 2:05 PM

  • Susan Ziegler
    April 19, 2012 at 2:33 PM

    I would make pretzel rolls!

  • Tiffany Alexa
    April 19, 2012 at 2:59 PM

    The first two things that I would make are the soft pretzel bites with cheese sauce for my six year old son ( who knew that soft pretzels and cheese sauces could turn into a major food group… well according to my six year old it is.) and then I would make Pizza bites for my 2 year old daughter that for her this is concidered a food group.. I would really like to have a mixer so that I can make things to vaccum seal in order to help save some money, plus this gives me time to spend with my kids as they are my assistant bakers.. They love to cook.

    Thanks

    I would make homemade cinnamon rolls just like my Grandma used to make. I was raised by my dear grandparents, and every Friday when we would come home from school, on the table would be cinnamon rolls my Grandma made with her ancient Kitchenaid. The rolls were a delight to behold and spoke volumes about her love for her three grandchildren who would run into the house each Friday with anticipation. The recipe is worn and spotted but tried and true…..ready to use when someday I have my own Kitchenaid.

  • Abbs
    April 19, 2012 at 5:22 PM

    I would make my favorite Lemon vanilla sugar cookies with royal icing for the teachers that I work with at school. It would be my opportunity to say thank you to them for all their hardworking with our students. I am an administrator/counselor.

    I always think about this as I have been wanting a kitchen aid for years! I hope this does not sound silly, but I would make pizza dough! I want to see if there is a difference then when I knead it by hand. Thank you so much for the chance to win 🙂

    I’ve always wanted to make some sort of bread but been too put out by all the kneading involved. I’d definitely take advantage of the dough hook and whip out some tasty bread!

    I would make my Mango Cream Pie Recipe with this KitchenAid mixer. I discovered the recipe when I was cruising the south pacific with my family in 2000. It is a very long story, but here is the short version. In June of 2000 my parents and I left on a long journey to sail to Australia via the South Pacific Islands. Our journey started in Southern California and our first destination was the Marquesas Islands. I met my now husband in Tahiti. Through my adventures throughout the South Pacific I quickly learned that finding finding the normal ingredients that are so readily available in US are quite hard to find in third world countries! Since I could always find plenty of mangos and eggs this became a favorite recipe of mine. With this KitchenAid mixer I would be able to whip this recipe up in minutes in stead of the hours it took to do when we lived on the boat (aka hand beating the egg whites). Check out our website for the full story.
