The stores are currently loaded with pink products benefiting breast cancer research. For example, KitchenAid carries a huge line of pink products that generate funds for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. What I want to know is, do you purchase these pink products?
This October, the folks at KitchenAid are proposing that you host a Cook for the Cure Party. By hosting a party you can help raise funds that benefit the Susan G. Komen for the Cure, and have a fabulous time doing it.
They've got the party planning down to four easy steps:
- Download the party kit, which includes invitations, party suggestions, recipes and entertaining tips.
- Plan the party. You'll have all the tools you need to determine what you need for a brunch party, a dessert party, a dinner party, etc. Be sure to ask your guests to bring a donation in lieu of a hostess gift.
- Fill out the donation form and gather up the donations from your guests. Mail them to the address provided.
- The most important step: Have a great time!
I took a quick glance at the party prep brochure, even if you're not planning on hosting a party, you'll definitely want to check out this handy resource. I've included one of the pages — recipe for cheddar crisps! — after the jump. Check it out, read more
The KitchenAid Mixer contest began and ended and as much as I would have loved to present each one of you with a prize, there can only be one winner. We were overwhelmed with entries, and set the geeks off to magically compute a random winner. So who was it? Well folks, give a big round of applause to jerseyjen. She'll now be able to easily whip up meringues, cakes, breads and more. I hope she sends us pics of her creations too!
Thanks to everyone who entered and don't give up hope, it could be you next time!
This week's ultimate kitchen item is a great mixer. I know, it's a bit of a splurge, and not everyone is going to use it. However, if you bake a lot (or plan on becoming a better baker), then you might really want to consider one. And, if you're building a registry, it's a great item for people to chip-in and get for you, so go for it!
My personal favorite (the one I have and love love love) is a KitchenAid Pro 600. It's a little pricey (list price: $500, but most places sell it for less than $400), but it will do everything you want it to and more. It comes with a flat beater, a wire whip, dough hook and a clear plastic pouring shield. You also have the option of purchasing other attachments such as a meat grinder, pasta maker or ice-cream machine. If the Pro is too pricey, KitchenAid also has an Artisan model that has a bit less power and capacity.
Three more mixers, including one you can use even if you don't have the counter space, so read more
