KitchenAid 1000 Cooks for the Cure and 12-Cup Food Processor Giveaway (Closed)

Congratulations to Elizabeth! I hope you enjoy your food processor!!

KitchenAid is once again committed to supporting Susan G. Komen for the Cure with their Cook for the Cure line. In 2011, they have promised a minimum of $450,000 in donations to the breast cancer foundation. This is the 10th year that one of my favorite appliance companies is a Komen for the Cure sponsor. Monies for the donations will come from sale and registration of pink KitchenAid products like the one pictured above, celebrity chef auctions and events like 1000 Cooks for the Cure.

For the second year, KitchenAid's goal is to have people like you and me host a Cook for the Cure party during the week of July 15-24. If you're one of the first 1000 cooks to commit to raising $50 during this time period, when you submit your donations, you'll receive a “Pass the Plate” platter. This year's plate is designed by Jacque Pepin. It's a unique and a really cool program, once you receive the plate, register it online at Cook for the Cure and every time the plate is passed on and submitted online, KitchenAid will donate an additional $5 to Komen for the Cure!

I'm hosting my first Cook for the Cure party this year and am hosting it in conjunction with my Bunko group. This month it's my turn to host Bunko so I thought I would combine the two. I'm going to ask my guests to donate at least $5. It's easy to host a Cook for the Cure party, you don't have to host a separate event if you're already planning a party or get-together with family and friends during July 15-24. Do you have a book club or scrapbooking crop? If so, you can plan your event and include a Cook for the Cure event. For more information, to register and for party tips, visit the Cook for the Cure page at KitchenAid.

I can't wait to share with you how my party goes and I hope you sign up to host one! Susan G. Komen for the Cure is an organization I happily support and volunteer with. My grandmother was diagnosed in 2006 and today is breast cancer survivor. Many, many people have been affected by breast cancer – one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. I appreciate companies like KitchenAid that support Komen for the Cure.

So Christmas happened once again in The Little Kitchen when my pink 12-Cup Food Processor arrived. It's so pretty and goes very nicely with my pink Artisan stand mixer. I just love love that it came with an accessory case (pictured above) that holds all of the blades, discs and other accessories.

The 12-Cup Food Processor features:

  • A 12-cup work bowl
  • A 4-Cup mini bowl & mini blade
  • 3 Discs – a fine slicing one, a medium slicing one & a medium shredding one
  • a stainless steel multipurpose blade
  • a dough blade

Stay tuned, over the next couple of weeks, I'm going to share some great party recipes utilizing my 12-Cup Food Processor. And now for the giveaway. Please read the instructions carefully. If you don't do the mandatory entry, your bonus entries won't count. I have also added a bonus entry worth 5 entries if you register to host a Cook for the Cure party.
