50th Birthday KitchenAid® Artisan® Series Tilt-Head Stand Mixer GIVEAWAY!

KitchenAid stand mxier

Thanks for celebrating my 50th birthday with me TODAY as I’m giving away a gorgeous KitchenAid® Artisan® Series Tilt-Head Stand Mixer! This post is sponsored by KitchenAid.

I’m over-the-moon thankful for my family and friends and readers, so now it’s my turn to give back to you!

It started 50 years ago. I’m so thankful for my loving parents who brought me home form the hospital in Riverside, California, and raised me and gave me so much in life!

50 Birthday KA giveaway

I was the youngest of 3 girls.

Sandy 50th Birthday

Full of vim and vinegar (they say). :)
Mail Attachment copy 60Speciality of birthday cakes

My mom baked a cake for us girls every year for our birthdays. I don’t think she ever missed a year. I still remember her stand mixer on the counter – it was small, and loud, and slow, with a glass bowl.

Nothing like my KitchenAid stand mixer today, which sits on my counter like a super model, so sleek and with so much power.

Sandy 50th Birthday

50 birthdayContinuing the tradition

I, like my mom, have made a zillion cakes and desserts for friends and family. I love to help celebrate  birthdays and milestone events, so I faithfully use my KitchenAid stand mixer for almost every meal. Honestly, I couldn’t live without it, with all the entertaining we do in our home. Like this cake recipe that we recently served.

Thank you, KitchenAid, for making my life easier! (Stay tuned this Fall as I’ll be giving away the attachments PLUS sharing a tutorial on HOW TO make applause the EASY way.)

    Second, I do follow you on Pinterest and Instagram, but wasn’t sure how to include those entries in the form.

    Third, I’m sorry if I entered twice! I got some kind of error message after I clicked submit the first time.

    Hope I did it right… I’d love to win!!!

    And third, I’m SO sorry if I commented or ENTERED more than once. I keep getting error messages, etc. I hope I did it right, because I would LOVE to win!

    Blessings and Thanks.
