Kitchenaid giveaway

This giveaway is closed. Congrats to our winner – Melissa T. (Just in case you are wondering, Melissa chose the KitchenAid Mixer in black!)

Welcome to Skinny not Skinny!

This is a place we share our favorite recipes. Some recipes will keep you skinny and some recipes…well, not so much. Either way, this is “Food for All”! While I’m a big fan of desserts (cookies, bars, cakes, pies – I’m not picky!), we also share healthy options, dinner ideas, appetizers, drinks and snacks.

We all eat, right? Why not sit back, grab a cookie and get to know each other with the common interest of FOOD!

To celebrate our big launch of Skinny not Skinny, we wanted to start out with a bang and give one of our new lucky readers/eaters something fabulous. When we think of time in the kitchen, it usually involves our KitchenAid Stand Mixer. That is why we have chosen it as our very first giveaway prize.

What is up for grabs:

One lucky winner will receive a KitchenAid 5 Quart Mixer in the color of their choice! Yes, there are THIRTY (30) colors to choose from!

How to Enter:

Just fill out the form below. It makes it easy for you. It makes it easy for us. The only mandatory entry is a blog comment. All the others are optional. * Giveaway STARTS now and ends at 11:00pm EST Wednesday, July 17, 2013.

  1. I have lusted after a fabulously colored KitchenAid Mixer for years!!! I could finally retire my no-hum almond workhorse. 🙂

  2. I would LOVE to see desserts on here! Since that is a huge reason why I NEED this mixer! I love love love baking! And I’m always looking for fun new things to try! I would also love to see some cheap, quick, and delicious at-home meals! Those are definitely always needed!

  3. I love the idea that your site consists of healthy and not so healthy recipes. That means I don’t have to chose!

  4. The bright colors would look great in my bright green and blue kitchen! Can’t wait to see what I can create with the amazing mixer!

  5. I love lunch and snack recipes the most, as I homeschool our large family and I run out of ideas for those a lot faster than dinner.

  6. I would looooove to have a KitchenAid mixer….I’m sure everyone in my family would love it too, it means more desserts for them 🙂

  7. I make 3 loaves of bread at a time and my mixer just isn’t up to the task. Would love the big Kitchen Aid! I’ve never really looked at your site for recipes, but I’m always up for anything I can make homemade instead of buying processed at the store.

  8. I’d love to see recipes from scratch. I find all these recipes on Pinterest but when they start with a box mix that just doesn’t seem worth it.

  9. I need kid friendly recipes that can be modified to be vegetarian for some members of the family, but including meat for other members

  10. I’d love to see, quick and easy, healthy meals. As a working mom, I don’t have a lot of time to prepare dinner by time I pick up my daughter from daycare and get home.

  11. Oh lordy, how much would my wrists thank you! The orange mixer is beautiful and would be a welcome tool for making my baked goods.

  12. I love all recipes, but I am a baker at heart! Looking forward to some skinny and not-so-skinny recipes! lol

  13. I love that I finally have time to cook for my family at home and I am a baking fanatic. However, I just broke my mixer and I’m having to do everything by hand. Talk about time consuming! With 2 little boys, another on the way, and hubby eating like a horse from all the excercise the military puts him through daily, I’m not keeping up with these guys. A Kitchen Aid Mixer has been on my wish list for years and it would be amazing if this opportunity played out for us. Good luck everyone!

  14. I’d love to see things you can do with a small group of kids, foods that they would actually eat and treats. Something for the 5-10 yr old set.

  15. Easy, healthy weeknight meals that are great for the whole family and require common items that are found in most households!

  16. Having been recently diagnosed with a gluten allergy, I would love to see a nice, big, gluten free section 🙂

  17. I honestly love all recipes! I’d love to find some more veggie recipes… I always love sweets (I don’t really eat them but I LOVE making them)… some kid friendly recipes that my 10 year old can help with. Quick and healthy lunch ideas.

  18. I’d love to see family friendly dairy-free recipes that don’t use dairy substitutes, just normal non dairy ingredients 🙂 I have a toddler who’s allergic to dairy and meal ideas are so hard!!

  19. I would love to see recipes for kids goodies with mixed in grains, fruits and veggies. Having a hard time getting DD to eat different foods but she loves sweets 😉

  20. I’d love to see recipes that are old favorites enhanced with nutrient rich items i.e. squashes and kale, etc as inspiration to eat healthy!

  21. I would love to see easy, FAST, healthy dinner ideas that my hubby and I along with our Preschooler and Kindergartener would all like!

  22. I love your stroller reviews and can’t wait to see your recipes! I have a city select with doubles kit and a kinderwagon hop thanks to you reviews.

  23. I would love to see some natural food recipes, those are the hardest to make and do nowadays, there is hardly information on that. Less of processed and more or natural things, and a kitchen aid would be great as it has so many attachments which can be used from making pastas to grinding fresh grains. Old day recipes were generally all fresh and not from the can, and were quite healthy.

  24. I would love to see recipes that promote healthy family diets and food, buying fresh and local and recipes that are not grain heavy. Good for you food not just food trends… congrats on the new site!

  25. I agree with lots of other posters, I’d love to see some dessert recipes! I fancy myself a baker, but in fact I’m pretty bad. I love trying though, so easy recipes are always great for someone like me 🙂

  26. i love recipes for casseroles and one dish recipes.they are great for potlucks.also,cookies! always ready for a new cookie recipe!

  27. Congratulations on this new website.would love to see more easy and healthy recipes! Been longing for a kitchen aid mixer too

  28. I’m a young adult who is trying her hardest to teach herself to cook and bake well enough for a future family. Cute and functional accessories would make that much more fun!

  29. I would love to see lots of quick and easy kid friendly meals. We are constantly searching for meals that the whole family will enjoy.

  30. Simple, easy breads. I make my own pizza crust, and I mix and knead by hand. While it’s good exercise, having a powerful KitchenAid Mixer would get the job done more smoothly 🙂

  31. I want to see recipes I can sneak healthy additives such as coconut oil and flax seed into! Anything yummy that will mask my secret ingredients 🙂 Can’t wait to follow this blog!

  32. I would like to see more diabetic friendly recipes. I was recently diagnosed so now I have to rethink my eating habits.

  33. I would love to see more healthy salad recipes and some easy dinner recipes. I would love to win won of these don’t have one still have my hand mixer which is at least 25 years old.

  34. I love easy recipes. Nothing with 25 ingredients or an hour prep. With a family that isn’t possible. And I like low card.

  35. With 4 kids, it’s always a challenge to find meals that they all enjoy. I’d love to see some simple dishes that are kid-friendly! I also LOVE desserts, and am often asked to bring something yummy to family gatherings. Any new dessert recipes are always appreciated as well!!

  36. I would like to see lots of appetizer recipes because that is MY favorite thing to eat and cook!!! I have been wanting this mixer for years, even considered getting married just so I could ask for one as a gift! =X Been using my Walmart brand hand mixer for about 7 years now, I NEED this mixer in my life!!! 🙂

  37. My wrists and fingers would be so happy if I could win one of these mixers. I’d be able to easily make some awesome desserts!

  38. I love recipes that present really well for entertaining. I love ideas for party foods and kid friendly healthy recipes. I also appreciate recipes that don’t include certain foods that are not too healthful like margarine, corn syrup, nitrates etc.

  39. Love the variety in the new blog! It’s tough to pick a type of recipe, I like to try lots of things! My go-to look up would probably be the quick & easy entrees/supper ideas. (and desserts, I do love desserts)

  40. I would love to make more Dessert for my little family and I’m happy you have another site I love baby gizmo it helped finally find a stroller I think we will be baby with now just to get the money for it thanks:)

  41. I love sweets, but also quick and easy dinner items. I am a barely capable cook who now needs to make dinner 5 nights a week. A girl can only eat so much pasta and sauce.

  42. All the best Hollie!….Babygizmo.com has always been my go to site whenever I buy ANYTHING for my baby. Thanks to babygizmo we came to know about couple of recalls on products that we use….
    Now another site to checkout for mouthwatering recipes….im ok with not so skinny recipes too….

  43. I don’t have time to cook with two little ones 3 and under. I’d love to see slow cooker recipes that I would be able to serve to my kids.

  44. Hollie is a wonderful reviewer on Baby Gizmo and I cannot wait for what she will bring to the food world. I’d love to see healthy quick recipes that the whole family will love for dinner

  45. desserts, desserts, desserts!!! Although I would also like to see some great meal recipes including kid friendly ones.

  46. Since my husband won’t agree to marry me a second time so that we can get all new appliances, I would be tickled pink to win a red Kitchenaid mixer to whip up cookies and brownies with my girls!

  47. What a great idea! I’m constantly going back to Baby Gizmo to try to find a recipe I loved. It’s will make it so much easier for me to scroll through.

  48. As a FT nurse and single parent of 14 mo old I love to cook ahead for the week for meals to take to work and use my slow cooker so a variety of easy to make large helpings and slow cooker meals would be devine. The pictures look yummy!

  49. I already love all of your amazing dessert recipes, but I’m really interested to see your healthier options. Particularly the ones you can get your kiddos to eat. 🙂

  50. Kid friendly foods please! I’m a pastry chef and a new mom. So I have tons of desert recipes but not enough kid friendly supper/lunch recipes!

  51. Personally, I love anything that looks like it’s going to add 15 lbs straight to my hips. 😉 Those are usually the most delicious, in moderation, of course.
    I am a big fan of pasta recipes.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  52. I would love to see easy Desserts for small families, I have a huge sweet tooth & I would love to find desserts that are just enough for a family of 3.

  53. I am in need of good bread recipes! Sandwich bread, dinner rolls, breads to go with soups, and anything from scratch. I am a U.S. resident living overseas with my family in Kazakhstan. Here it is near impossible to find even sliced sandwich bread. 😉 My 2 year old and 9 month old need to eat PB&J’s and grilled cheeses as part of their childhood! 😉 I NEED a KitchenAid mixer now more than ever!

  54. I like easy to make recipes that I can make with my kids without me wanting to throw them out of the kitchen. No Bake Desserts are usually perfect for that.

  55. I am usually looking for recipes for items that I can bring to a potluck, especially dessert recipes. It is a huge bonus if it is not too complicated, inexpensive ingredients, and tastes amazing.

  56. Cute name! (Nice touch with the bold “not skinny” S.) I like baking banana bread with coconut oil instead of butter (skinny)… and sometimes, I like to add a lightly sweetened cream cheese frosting (not skinny?). 🙂 Hey, this is fun! Looking forward to checking out the recipes. And eating too. 🙂

  57. The kitchen has always been my favorite place. I love to try out new recipes, make my own, etc. But now with my kids, (my real favorite) I’m always looking for dinners that are quick and easy, and possibly something that I could do with the kids.

  58. I would love to see deserts and kids friendly recipes. I have four kids and one in the way so anything easy and kid approved would be awesome

  59. I would love to see some healthy takes on everyday meals, and quick healthy dinner ideas! I am always stuck on what to make for dinner for the week, feel like we eat the same stuff over and over, usually healthy but not always. Always nice to get new ideas!

  60. I’m excited to learn healthy recipes to bake with my daughter (soon to be another!). I’d love to see more of the same types of recipes, they’re great!

  61. I would love to see “multi use” recipes, ie ones that contribute to help making multiple meals for the week

  62. I was super excited to stumble upon your new food blog. Thank you so much for sharing all of these great ideas with the rest of us!!

  63. So awesome! What could possibly be better than a Kitchenaid mixer!!! I love desserts and make them for every family function. Appetizers are always good too. I love looking at recipes and drooling over them!

  64. Healthy foods are always a great choice. I’m happy to see items that benefit our bodies and encourage healthy eating :).

  65. I would love a food blog with some normal, easy to make, don’t need to hunt around town for ingredient I’ve never heard of kind of recipes:-)

  66. I love recipes that I can involve my kids in – also (on the other end of the spectrum) – I like to see “healthy converts” from the old fashioned recipes that mom used to make 🙂

  67. I can’t wait to start exploring this site. I am most in need of simple lunch and snack recipes, but I sure do love to browse the desserts! Thanks for the great giveaway!

  68. Keep the dessert recipes a coming! I’d also like to see play dough and other out of the ordinary things you can make. I love baking so any cake or bread recipe is always welcome in my book

  69. I have wanted a kitchen aid stand mixer for years. I have a great hand mixer from kitchen aid, but a stand mixer would free up my hands!

  70. My husband would be so happy with what I could make with one of these. My excuse is always, “I can’t make that, I don’t have the right mixer.” The hint has so far gone unnoticed. Fingers crossed to win this or that my hubby picks up the hint.

  71. Kitchen Aid Mixers are amazing. I have such fond memories of my mom baking cookies and cakes for us as kids and would like to have those memories with my daughter as well. Thanks for this opportunity.

  72. I would love to see some weeknight meal ideas/recipes that are either made in a crock pot or are fast and have few ingredients, possibly one pan recipes…? thank you

  73. Love kitchen aide!! Would love to have one! I would love to see appetizer recipes since I take these to a lot of parties!

  74. I would love to see some great veggie based vegetarian/vegan recipes. I can’t get enough especially with the great summer produce selection!

  75. I have never owned one of these mixers before. As much as I love baking, I know this would make baking even more enjoyable! I hope to win!

  76. I love your blog, and making bread & cookies especially!! My mixer has seen better days – I would LOVE LOVE LOVE a pretty one! The choice will be hard!

  77. Freezer friendly meals as I like to do freezer meal cooking pretty often to help make things easier during the week.

  79. Great tool to help make some of the awesome recipes! Would love to see homemade pasta recipes and would DEFINITELY buy the pasta attachment if I had this!!!

  80. I LOVE to bake and would love to see recipes for baking. I would also love to see quick weekday healthy meals recipes. I feel like we are always eating the same easy healthy dinners!

  81. I would love more toddler recipes to get good things into their bodies that they love to eat. I’m all about sneaking the veggies! I also love the blue mixer.

  82. I could use one for so many things, pasta making, ice cream making, bread making, cookie making…the list go on and on….

  83. I’ve wanted a KitchenAid mixer for a long time. I would love to make some new recipes for my little one.

  84. I would love to see deserts! That’s my fave! I’m always using my mixer for cakes, frostings, and fondant. I constantly talk about how I could really use a second one. I would LOVE to win 🙂

  85. I love cooking for my family but feel like I always make the same thing. New recipes are always helpful as would be a new mixer!

  86. I’d love to see both baking AND regular food ideas. I struggle with breakfast because it needs to be quick… but we have some picky eaters…

  87. I have a 4 yo boy who has autism. Picky eater and he has to be gluten and casein free. I borrowed a friends kitchen aid to make his gfcf birthday cake pops. They came out wonderfully.
    He has sensory issues and my hand mixer freaks him out. He didn’t mind my friend’s kitchen aid, but I had to give it back. 🙁
    One day….

  88. My son is 4 and has autism. A very picky eater. Recipes to sneak gluten and casein free food are always welcome here. I borrowed my friends kitchen aid to make his birthday gfcf cake pops. He has sensory issues, my hand mixer is loud. He liked the kitchen aid but I had to give it back;(

  89. One-pot or one-dish (healthy…) meals! I haaaate doing the dishes so it’s my mission in life to do as much one-pot cooking as I can, but often those recipes are not super healthy. Would love to have more in my repertoire.

  90. Mmm… I’m already a huge fan of your dessert recipes so I would say… italian food. Anything pasta!!

  91. I really hope I win this. I’ve wanted one for a long time. I want to see more dessert/baked goods recipes. Thanks!

  92. My little girl always has to help with baking and cooking. She always gets such a red hand from working so hard stirring. This would be so wonderful for her since shes my little helper and shares the love of cooking and baking with me! We love muffins and need more variety. I havent had luck with some new recipes…too bland or dry!

  93. I would love to see lots of healthy snack recipes. I’m currently breastfeeding and always hungry between meals. And anything chocolate! 🙂

  94. I’d love to see anything with “hidden” veggies in it. (yes, “green smoothies” are packed with awesome nutrients. But they’re green, therefore my kid won’t drink them!)

  95. I would love to see SIMPLE recipes for picky eaters. Something you could fix quickly with minimal ingredients for those who won’t eat much.

  96. I have worn out a kitchen aid mixer with all the baking the boys and I do……so I need a new one!! Plus all the new desserts you have me printing out to try!!!!

  97. I’ve already worn out a kitchen aid mixer with all the baking the boys and I do, so I need anew one!!!! The new Skinny not Skinny recipes you send me also need tested, so the mixer would def come in handy!!

  98. quick dinner recipes using wholesome easy to obtain ingredients that my kids will eat–is that asking too much 🙂

  99. sweet dessert recipes are the best to look at and drool over, but main dishes and then secondary leftover reinventions are what I need the most in my recipe box. Thanks!

  100. So cool, looking for some great food blogs. Would love to win a mixer, with 6 kids it would really help out in the kitchen.

  101. I have always dreamed of owning one of these. Feel that they would help me bake more than I do 🙁 Also would like to know of great appetizer recipes, always in apinch need one and never seem to find any that are quick, different, and amazing!! Get sick of the same old staple app.
