The Power of Simplicity: KitchenAid & RE Book GIVEAWAY

Happy November 1, friends! I’m excited for today, because it’s GIVEAWAY DAY (hosted by, and a big thank you to The Nester at Nesting Place, if she sent you over).

With many entertaining moments right around the corner, I want to encourage RE readers (by giving away a signed copy of my book) to reach out this month, to invite others into your home, to keep simplicity in mind by planning an easy menu, and not feeling like you have to do it all by yourself.

One secret to successful entertaining is to be relaxed and engaged when you greet your guests at the front door – something that often does not happen when there are too many details that we sweat about, or when we are frazzled from our preparations!

A simpler approach will help you enjoy your guests more, without a whole lot of fuss or formality and without feeling like you’re a slave in your own kitchen. – The Reluctant Entertainer

How can you make entertaining easier?

KitchenAid is here supporting my message, “The Power of Simplicity” by giving away this beautiful product, a beautiful 13-cup Food Processor, highlighting its revolutionary features, including an externally adjustable slicing blade.

I’ve found that having efficient tools and appliances in the kitchen definitely makes for easier preparation, and makes my experience in the kitchen much more enjoyable.

So … Here’s what we are giving away today.

KitchenAid® NEW 13-Cup Food Processor, designed for precise slicing

• First Ever and Only Externally Adjustable Slicing – Easily adjust from thin to thick slicing by simply sliding the lever from left to right.

• Optimized Speeds for Better Results – The uniquely designed blade and multiple speeds give precise slicing and accuracy for soft and hard foods.

• The Only 3-in-1 Ultra Wide Mouthâ„¢ Feed Tube – Adjusts to three different widths for processing foods horizontally or vertically.

A copy of my book, The Reluctant Entertainer, signed to whoever you’d like.

    • Most definitelty, my Kitchenaid mixer is my favorite! I’ve had the same one for over 20 yrs. It really lets me multitask in the kitchen. I put my timer to good use, turn it on for the time specified in a recipe and either clean up the mess thus far, load the dishwasher or start a load of laundry!

  42. I love my Kitchen Aid mixer! Love, love, love it!

  45. It would have to be my cute red Hamilton Beach blender that I gave my husband for Christmas last year (he was not excited), under the pretense that he loves milkshakes. Really it just looks super cute in my kitchen…even collecting dust. This year, I plan to give him the matching toaster over. He’s really looking forward to it. Wants it much more than a new mountain bike.

  69. It is a tossup between a coffee maker (I’m a homeschooling mom with three young kids!) and my standmixer. I love my food processor too but mine is from about 10.5 years ago, and the bowl is cloudy and has seen better days.

  70. Oh definitely my kitchenaid these days. Cookie dough & royal icing… A food processor is the next thing on my wishlist though! I have a mini one that is nice, but not convenient for many projects.

  76. I can not live without my immersion blender. Ever since our babies could eat solid food I’ve used the blender daily. While my children are older and don’t need mashed food, I still use the blender every morning for my daily green smoothies. Its small and easy to bring with us when we travel!

  77. Ooh, kitchen appliances. Oh, how I love them. I love my KitchenAid stand mixer. It’s beautiful and functional and blue and just perfection. My food processor is on its last legs, so this is awesome!!! And of course I already have your book which I love, but a free copy would make a fantastic gift for someone. So great.

  78. My favorite appliance would have to be my Emerson Electric Wine Bottle Opener. I simply cannot get a bottle of wine open any other way!

    Thanks for this giveaway! I do not own a food processor, so this would be a fantastic prize for me!

  79. My favorite? I think it’s my KitchenAid Stand Mixer. I love that thing, and I have no idea how I lived without it! I also cannot live without my immersion blender. Handiest tool in the kitchen, in my opinion. Sadly, I do not have a food processor, but I happen to think that would be life changing, too. :)

    A new (good) food processor is on my Christmas list.

  89. My Kitchen Aid Mixer. Almost 12 year old and still going strong!

  90. I like your facebook page!

  91. We have a stick blender that is awesome! I never would’ve purchased one but I received is as a gift… couldn’t live without it. Right now use that little guy with an attachment as a food processor, but an actual food processor would be awesome to have, I could “process” more food quicker!

  92. Like many others, I have to say my KitchenAid stand mixer. I don’t know what I would do without it. Best GIFT EVER! I often ask myself and others, how exactly did my great grandmother cook without one?

  93. Like so many others, I’d have to say that I’m attached to my Kitchen Aid Mixer.

  94. love my kitchen aid mixer.

  95. I LOVE my Kitchenaid MIxer. But would love this too! :)

  96. Oh, it is a tossup between my stand mixer, my food processor (which is too small…I would love to win this one!) or my COFFEE POT (is that considered an appliance or a life line??). Love this giveaway!!!

  97. My dishwasher beat out my coffeemaker, only because I have a stove-top latte maker that would serve me if I had to give up my coffeemaker! NOTHING would replace my dishwasher…except my two children! :)

  98. Definitely good knives. I would LOVE this food processor! I have a teeny tiny one in comparison, and it’s a pain to have to make one recipe of my family’s favorite homemade salsa in four batches.

  99. I can NOT live without my set of Henkel knives. Love these things!

  271. My vintage Vita-Mix is my favorite, but it does not do what a food processor does … it cannot chop! So I miss that, and do not have a food processor currently.

  272. I’ve wanted your book forever! And I just saw a commercial last night for the KA food processor…it looks amazing!

  273. I guess my microwave.. I’m a very reluctant entertainer and rushed mom with two jobs. COuldn’t live without it.

  274. If we’re talking large appliances, I can’t imagine life without most of them…particularly the refrigerator. :-) But small appliances, probably my hand mixer. I don’t use it every day, but I can’t imagine making meringue or whipped cream without it!

  275. It’s the coffee maker! My morning cup of coffee is one of each day’s simplest pleasures.

  465. I can’t live without my mini food processor. Especially as I often prepare meals for one or two. It saves time when slicing whole onions or shredding potatoes for rosti, etc. However, I’d use it more than I already do if the shoot feed was much wider. It’s a pain to have to quarter (or 1/8) many vegetables and fruits for shredding/slicing.

    P.S. I’m already a facebook member of Reluctant Entertainer and Kitchenaid and posted about the giveaway.
    I’ve now added both to twitter and have tweeted about the giveaway and if I had a blog I would be doing that too.

  474. I make decorated cakes and cookies and I couldn’t live without my Kitchenaid 6qt professional mixer… Love IT!

  475. This morning I would say my coffee maker!

    But last night we had a family over for supper, and I made cinnamon apple slices in my slow cooker, it was wonderful to give the cold daddies and little girls who had gone out trick or treating a warm dessert, and I had done all the work early so I was available to our guests. (I served the apples over vanilla ice cream or just all by themselves).

    But I didn’t meet them at the door….I was watching for them and ran out to meet them at their car and help carry things in. :-)

  476. My kitchen aid stand mixer. 15 years old and still in perfect condition

  477. i don’t have very many appliances- hoping to change that after my upcoming wedding- but my go-to is definitely my immersion blender. that little guy is powerful! i use it for everything from smoothies to soup to marinara sauce and it rocks them all.

  616. I tweeted the giveaway!! @sarathewise

  617. I use my Aroma Electric Water Kettle every day!

  618. Boy that’s a tough one. Of course most of us have ranges and refrigerators, but as far as those “extra” appliances, I use my microwave oven most. I don’t actually cook in it, but I use it for reheating foods and for thawing meats.

    I also have a 25-year old Oskar Jr. that I use for chopping small amounts of things. I’ve never had anything larger than the Jr. size and it holds maybe a cup of stuff? It’s a wee little thing but it never lets me down.

  619. I can’t live without my oven. I’d say our weber grill if it counted as an appliance cause we can’t live without it!

    Glad Nester sent me to your blog! I could learn so much from you! Gonna spend a good hour here…again. Lol

  620. I hate to admit it, but I could not live without my microwave!

  621. Love my mini chopper.

  622. The appliance I could not live without is definitely my wheat grinder. Love it. Comes in handy because I bake everything from scratch using only freshly ground flour.

  623. I would go with my immersion blender. I love making soup with it.

  624. My stick blender- I put it through the dishwasher 2x on sunday because I was cooking so much- I didn’t realize how many times I use it until my husband held up the dishwasher safe end and asked “Didn’t I wash this once already today?”

  625. My favorite appliance in my kitchen is def my coffee maker

  633. i love my kitchen aid mixer!

  634. my immersion blender! i use it for our looooong MN winters, making all kinds of soups!

  635. As simple as it sounds, I like my apple slicer. With lots of little kiddos, that little wonder gets lots of play at our house.

  636. I can’t decide between my oven or my coffee pot – I love to bake but I need my coffee! :)

  637. I love my pink Kitchen Aid mixer. I love it because it is pink. I have a husband and 5 little boys.
    I just love looking at it in my kitchen. It makes me smile because there is something girly in my

  638. It is avocado green, over 40 years old, and passed down to us from my husband’s mother – my every-day useful KitchenAid stand mixer. Today I just shred chicken breasts in it in under 20 seconds!

  639. Definitely my Kitchenaid stand mixer, I use it all the time!

  640. probably my husband…he’s either in the kitchen helping me out, or testing my food and giving me just the feedback i need.

  641. First off- Thanks for a great month last month. Your warm connections series was wonderful! I apologize for not knowing, but you have a book out? How cool are you?!

    My favorite kitchen appliance is my “work horse” aptly named Brutus. My kitchen aid mixer. However, I’m also very fond of my immersion blender.

  642. I follow you on Twitter!

  643. My mandolin because I don’t have a food processor. I do use it a lot to make soups, etc.

  644. love my coffee pot.

  645. hi sandy!
    i love my ninja and use it a few times daily to puree baby food :)

  646. Without a doubt, Kitchen Aid mixer. It lives up to it’s reputation. :)

  647. It’s a tie between my crock pot and my coffee maker! Both are life savers!

  648. I don’t have very many electric appliances, but my favorite one is my electric water kettle!

  649. The kitchen appliance I cannot live without would be either my Kitchenaid mixer or my crockpot. They both are life savers..

  650. I am a FB fan of RE. :)

  651. I love my Jenair gas range. We cook 3 meals a day in this house pretty much every day, so it gets a workout. It has some nice features that make my life easier and help my food turn out better including a keep warm mode and a temperature probe that allow me a little more freedom to be present with my guests.

  652. I would say my food processor. Which is why this one looks so appealing!

  653. I can’t do without my Kitchen stand mixer. Thank you for such a wonderful opportunity and I love your entertaining attitude.

  654. I would not want to be without my microwave. But then again what would I do without my toaster? We eat toast almost every day! Thanks for the lovely blog, you are so encouraging.

  655. My bright yellow lemon juicer

  656. Wow! What a nice giveaway! Aren’t we blessed to have toasters, blenders, mixers, food processers and microwaves that we can’t live without?! That’s a tough decision, but perhaps a blender would be most missed. Maybe I would say food processer if I win one…thanks for the chance!!

  657. I can’t live without my toaster oven this time of year, it is great for those extra side dishes during the holidays that don’t fit in my other oven with the Turkey and such!!

  658. Can’t live without? Espresso pot. Not for me, for my husband. We have 3 different sizes of the true Italian ones and even shipped the coffee halfway around the world with us!

  659. My kitchen aid mixer!

  660. I have to agree with many others that I love and couldn’t live without my Kitchen Aid mixer!

  661. Mine is my kitchen aid Mixer!

  662. liked you on fb

  663. I’m sure it would be my Kitchen Aid mixer if I owned one. I do not so it would have to be my Santoku knife.

  664. I “like” you on FB

  665. I love my kitchenaid mixer it is my favorite.

  666. I really could not do without my bread machines. Yes, that is plural! I have two bread machines that make all the dough for my families bread, pizza and rolls that we eat. Makes eating healthy more affordable!

  667. My favorite small appliance would be my (15 yr old) Kitchen Aid mixer :)

  668. The crockpot, especially during the cold-weather months. It’s a lifesaver for the lazy cook.

    Thanks for the opportunity!
