These sweet and tangy tequila lime bars are a fun take on a traditional lime bar. They have a unique flavor that will keep everyone coming back for more. 

They have a delicious crust made with two unusual ingredients of vanilla wafer cookies and pine nuts. The filling is made with lime juice, tequila, egg yolks and sweetened condensed milk. 

I bought the mini bottles of tequila instead of a large bottle to save on ingredient cost! Also I used true Key Limes and they really were perfect in this recipe, but any lime will do. 

I hope you try these Tequila Lime Bars, even if you are not a tequila fan. The tequila is not strong and fades into the back notes of these bars! 

Yield: 20 small bars

Tequila Lime Bars

Close up side view of lime bar topped with vanilla wafer cookie crumbles on a white plate with light blue background
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 40 minutes
Additional Time 2 hours
Total Time 2 hours 55 minutes


  • 1 12-ounce box vanilla wafers
  • 1/2 cup pine nuts
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter (11/2 sticks), melted
  • 1/3 cup lime flavored tequila
  • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice
  • 5 large egg yolks, plus 2 egg whites
  • 1 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • Agave nectar for drizzling
  • zest of 2 limes


  1. Preheat the oven to 350. Pulse the wafers and pine nuts in a food processor until well ground up. Add the melted butter and blend until evenly mixed. Set aside 1/3 cup of crumbs; press the rest evenly into a 9-by-13 baking pan. Bake until golden brown, 15 to 18 minutes. Cool.
  2. In a medium bowl, thoroughly whisk together the tequila, lime juice, egg yolks, lime zest and condensed milk.
  3. In another medium bowl, beat the egg whites and sugar with an electric mixer until they hold soft peaks. Gently fold the egg whites into the tequila mixture.
  4. Spread the filling evenly over the crust and bake for 25 minutes; cool. Sprinkle the reserved crumbs on top. Chill in the fridge for 2 hours or overnight before cutting. Drizzle with agave nectar, if desired.

    My favorite appliance is my Kitchen Aid mixer. I would uset he food processor to make salsa using fresh ingredients from our garden.

  3. Margaret Morgan

    I love my KA mixer. If I were to win the food processor, I would use it to make salsa with our homegrown tomatoes and chilis.

  4. Chris Macri

  6. Rebecca U

    When I win the processor I will make these Tequila Lime Bars. I will not use my Patron though! Will invest in the little bottles of lime tequila (thanks for that tip)!

  7. Susan Brooks

    My favorite Kitchenaide is my stand mixer. Although you can make dough for pie crust I would love to try dough in the food processor. Why do I find so many recipes that call for the food processor that I don’t have.

  8. Michelle

    i love making salsa and would use a new food processor to slice cucumbers so I can make pickles.It sure would be make it easier.LOL

  9. Jessica P

    So far my ideas for a new food processor are: hummus, pesto, falafel, and shredding things! And making cookie crumbs for pie crust. I have never owned a food processor before, so I will have to see what the possibilities are.

  10. Jessica P

    My favorite (and only) Kitchenaid appliance is my hand mixer. I burnt out the motor in my old cheap one, and splurged when I replaced it, and oh my, what a difference. Our kitchen is tiny, so no stand mixer for me yet, but I have cleared a spot for a food processor!

  11. K. Brian Kelley

    For #2 – we’d look to make homemade hummus and pesto using a new food processor. We tried some store-bought hummus a few weeks ago and the kids loved it. However, I’d rather make it myself. The same with pesto. Since my daughter’s milk allergies rule out cream-based sauces for pasta, I’m looking to do more than the standard tomato-based ones.

  12. K. Brian Kelley

    For #1 – definitely a stand mixer. Ours is white and we’ve used it for a lot of baking before our daughter was born. However, she has a severe milk protein allergy, so that limits the kinds of things we can make. But it’s still a useful appliance in our kitchen.

  13. Jade

    My favorite Kitchenaid appliance is my stand mixer. She is beautiful and I don’t know how I cooked without her!

  14. SouthernSugar

    And I’ve liked you on FB. The tequila lime bars look delish — I’m going to have to give them a try!

  15. SouthernSugar

    But if I did have a KA food processor, I would use it to make homemade salsa, for one. I love a good salsa — it’s my favorite snack — and I’ve been dying to give making my own a try. With this food processor, I could make small batches for myself, medium-sized batches for parties, and large batches for canning. Salsa FTW! πŸ˜€

  16. SouthernSugar

    I don’t have a favorite KA appliance, simply because I don’t have any yet. πŸ™ But I’ve been lusting after a food processor and a mixer both for a while now…

  17. Paige Humphrey

    Question Two: If I were to win, what I would use my new food processor for?

    Gosh, it would truly be a blessing! So many great things I could do. I don’t have a food processor so 1st of all having a processor to quickly chop would truly save me a lot of prep time for meals! I love making a Pesto Sauce, salsa, chopping nuts (for parfait), dry bread(for a crust) Ect.

  18. Joy Jacobs

    If I won, I would use my new KitchenAid food processor for just about everything. I use it to knead bread dough, prepare vegetables, and make lots of yummy desserts.

  19. Joy Jacobs

    I personally don’t have any KitchenAid appliances, but my mom has a very old KA food processor that has proved very faithful over the years.

  20. Paige Humphrey

    Question one: Which KitchenAid appliance you own is my favorite?

    I have a KitchenAid KSM5B 5-Quart Stand Mixer. Part of why I love this Mixer is because this was a hand-me-down from my Grandmother, who was an amazing cook and always trusted Kichen Aid products. When I make pound cakes, using my Mixer I am reminded of her and how we used to stand in the kitchen using the same Kitchen Aid Mixer. I use my Mixer for so many things. Like making homemade whipped cream for fruit topping or for coffee!

  21. Allie

    I must say I LOVE my KA stand mixer as well. Red must be the color =) Mine gets used all the time. It loves to make me delicious cupcakes!

  22. Nicole

    I would love to use the food processor for making sauces, and pie crusts. The 3 sizes of bowls would be so useful!

  23. Soileau

    If I win, I will learn how to make all sorts of pestos, of course, but we also have a baby on the way, and I would LOVE to learn to make some baby food! Oh, and I typed my email address wrong in my first comment. I put .som instead of .com! Just letting you know in case I win!

  24. Hannah

    My would I love a kitchen aid Mixer. Unfortunately I live in NYC and just don’t have the kitchen space. I do so very much love my blender which makes A-Maz-Ing protein smoothies every morning.

    I have been dying for a food processor for making pesto and hummus, peanut butter, and sauces. I love making my own food but these things I have to buy because I just can’t get them fine enough in my blender.

    PS. I “like” you on facebook.

  25. jennifer

    I would love a real food processor b/c what I have now is just a cheapy, 1 or 3 cup processor that has no real options. I use it to cut up meats for my toddler, he has GI condition (hirschsprung’s disease) and is a poor eater; not sure if it’s from his condition or just from being a toddler. Anyway, I try and hide chicken and other meats in his mac-n-cheese. also I made spreads w/ steak or chicken (kinda like chicken salad) in hopes that he’ll eat more. I also have some recipes that you use processed veggies and hide them in meals so that way toddlers get some veggies. I have tried it w/ my current processor, but I only tried it once b/c my processor is just too small and not powerful enough.

    I would love the kitchen aid 12 cup processor to help me get my lil guy back up on the weight charts!

  26. jennifer

    My fav kiktchen aid is my stand mixer, my husband bought it for me 2 christmas’s ago. All I had prior was a lil hand mixer from wlagreen’s lol. My new Kicken aid mixer is just wonderful and does so much more than just cakes and cookies.

  27. Raychel S.

    I would love to have the food processor so I can easily make my own baby food. My son just turned 4 months so we are just entering the baby food stage.

  28. Amy Ramos

    My favorite KA product is my blender. I use it for my green monster smoothies in the morning!
    If I get the food processor,I would use it for my homemade pesto and gazpacho for the upcoming warm weather!!

  29. Coleen

    What would I make with a new KitchenAid food processor? Oh, the possibilities! My absolute favorite cream scones, maybe some pate brisee, homemade pesto . . . I absolutely love to cook!

  30. Coleen

    My favorite KitchenAid product is my stand mixer. It’s a 6-quart PRO that I bought refurbished about 5 years ago. It’s gotten some heavy-duty usage since I bought it, and it still works (and looks) like it’s brand-new! I’ve made bread, cookies, cakes, you-name-it in that mixer! I’ve got the paddle, the whip, and the bread hook. It never leaves my kitchen counter!

  31. Ann

    I would use the food processor for pesto. My kids are always asking for pesto, but I have dinky little food processor that really can’t do much.

  32. Lia

    If I had the food processor maybe I’d make quinoa veggie burgers, or gazpacho, or basically every sauce that takes me 10 bowls/cutting boards to make. What about using it to knead dough since I don’t have a stand mixer? these tequila lime bars? I’m driving myself mad just thinking of the possibilities. I have my mom’s old food processor from the 80’s which doesn’t even have a brand on it so no betrayal there, but for some reason its quite temperamental and only works when it is much cajoled and shimmied [ie thrown against the wall].

  33. Lia

    I don’t have an kitchenaid appliance but I’ve ALWAYS wanted a stand mixer so that I won’t have to knead dough forever with my already sports injured arm. Dear random generator, please love me enough to pick me! :).

  34. Elizabeth

    Regarding question two, I have a list of recipes I’d love to try. Starting with pesto, salsa, salad dressings, and chopping ingredients for homemade granola/ power bars (would certainly be easier than a knife and cutting board). Yum! The possibilities are endless…

  35. Elizabeth

    Would you believe I own no Kitchen Aid appliances after over a decade of cooking? I love to cook, but get by with mostly no-appliance-necessary type recipes. This would definitely allow my to expand my repertoire.

  36. Michelle

    If I were to receive the food processer, I would use it to make lots of salsa this summer with tomatoes from our garden.

  37. Michelle

    I love using my kitchenaid mixer, especially for making cinnamon swirl cake. I just throw the ingredients and leave it to mix for 10 minutes before popping it in the oven – tastes just like corner bakery and it’s super simple!

  38. leigh

    If I were lucky enough to win a new food processor… I would make hummus and ice cream and soups and pesto – there are all sort of things!

  39. leigh

    Love your blog! My stand mixer is also my current favorite KitchenAid appliance – I love to use it for just about everything!

  40. steph

    If I won…I don’t even know what I would make yet. Probably anything on a long list of things I have not been able to make because I don’t have a food processor large enough. I’d probably start with some kind of dough.

  41. Kristy

    I have a big red KA mixer too. I upgraded to it from my small white one at Christmas. It is my favorite for sure!

    I would use the food processor to make nut butter. I want to try to make homemade nutzo!

  42. Jordan

    If I win, I would use my food processor on a big batch of pesto! I have never had a big food processor and can only make things like that with my small hand blender. I’d love to make a ton of pesto with garden fresh basil and freeze it for the winter.

  43. Jordan

    My favorite KA appliance is definitely my stand mixer. It’s yellow and matches my dishes/kitchen perfectly!! I use it for almost everything!

  44. Maggie

    I would use my food processor in making all types of desserts! Sadly in our poor-man’s life, we don’t have a mixer/blender/anything at home, and since my Brazilian boyfriend has an enormous sweet tooth, I would use it to make a crust for a good old American apple pie. πŸ™‚

  45. Maggie

    My favorite appliance is the stand mixer. Though I don’t have one, I gush over them and use them at every possibility when I’m with a friend who does!

  46. geri

    My deep blue stand mixer is like a piece of art. I love seeing it on display. Such a beautiful machine. With 20 pots of basil growing on the side of my house, pesto is by default the first recipe.

  47. JENN

    If i were to win this food processor the first thing I would try is a homemade pancake mix that I saw in my new America’s Test Kitchen cookbook. It requires mixing butter into the dry ingredients into a fine crumb. Last week I made a homemade pistachio cake, you should have seen me trying to get pistachios into a powder using by blender, it sure didn’t work very well. A food processor would have been much better!

  48. JENN

    My favorite Kitchen Aid item is my silver stand mixer. The first thing I made when I came home with my mixer was divinity. Love it! I use it for everything whether it’s a quick batch of cookies, a delicious cake, chewy pizza dough or a big batch of rolls. I couldn’t imagine living without it.

  49. Helen

    My favorite Kitchen Aid product is my red stand mixer. I could not live without it as I bake so often! If I win, I’d use the food processor to make my own peanut butter.

  50. Katlyn Gibson

    I would use it to make homemade spaghetti sauce to share with all of my neighbors. My garden is over run with tomatoes and basil already!!!

  51. Dana

    One thing I will DEFINITELY use the food processor for is getting my ingredients for the week ready on Sunday. I hate chopping so normally I prepare all my chopped ingredients on Sunday. It would be so much easier to do that with a food processor. Additionally I will use it to make pestos and hummus. All that fresh made food (especially dips like hummus) is soooo healthy for you!

  52. Brianne

    As for my favorite kitchenaid gadget, I don’t have one of my very own (sad face). Therefore, if you kind people were to give me a food processor, it would be absolutely be my favorite (happy face!).

  53. Christie VanTongeren

    If I were to win the food processor the first thing I would make would be carrot cake – shredding all those carrots by hand is just too much work!

  54. Christie VanTongeren

    My favorite KitchenAid appliance is my stand mixer! It can do everything and makes whipping cream or beating egg whites super easy.

  55. Brianne

    I would do oh so very many things with a food processor! Pizza dough and pie crust are probs at the top of my list, but I also really want to make almond butter and pesto and hummus and grate lots of cheese for fondue and–let’s be honest, I’ll use it for just about everything!

  56. kerri mcconnell

    my favorite kitchenaid appliance is my stand mixer… i use it every chance i get. i even use if it it is completely unnecessary! LMAO

  57. Dana

    My favorite KitchenAid appliance is my stand mixer. My new adventure with it involves the ice cream add-on that my hubby got me. It’s amazing how many uses the stand mixer has!!!

  58. Bonnie

    I’d love the red one, and I’d use it to try making some pie crusts for some insane chicken/ turkey pot pies!

  59. Bonnie

    Great giveaway! I love my stand mixer the most too; it’s faithfully helped me churn out countless cookies, brownies, and cakes, and add inches to my hips.

  60. annalene

    oh my, i’d love to make some black bean burgers! i would also use it to make a ton of baked goods… i hate having to mix everything by hand eeeeeeeerg!

  61. jo

    My current food processor (the-brand-that-shall-not-be-named)is fine but is difficult to clean sometimes. I thought it would be my last food proc but the little contraption that keeps the spring in place and lets you lock it to the base broke ! So I do need a new one (am making do for now with some duct tape). Now that summer is here, I’d love to make gazpacho and pesto. Thanks!

  62. jo

    My wonderful KitchenAid stand mixer which is about 22 years old now is my favorite! It’s seen me through countless school bakesales, birthday parties, anniversaries, graduations, holidays, diets, and shows no signs of slowing down.

  63. alex (spoonful of sugar free)

    Sad to say, I don’t own anything from KitchenAid yet πŸ™ But I would LOVE a food processor!!! I can think of tons of things to use it with. If I had to choose one, then I would make my own nut butters!!!! Mmmm….. Others on my list include: hummus, 1 ingredient banana ice cream, and yummy creamy soups!

  64. Natalie Kiefer

    Among other things, I would use my new food processor for making baby food…I’m expecting this July. : )

  65. Natalie Kiefer

    My favorite KitchenAid appliance is my mini-prep…and I would absolutely love a bigger version of it! : )

  66. diana falcon

    Hey Jessica, Well I put this on my Facebook and twitter, as you know I love cooking, I’m a mommy on the run! Alex is starting to learn to eat “big people food”, I have to make it into a puree or something of the sort for him to eat it, unless its very soft like oversteamed veggies, I would love to use this to make alex some meals quickly and with out a huge mess, being that we are trying to have baby two, it will sure get its use in,…PS i make all of alexs baby food when he is home!

    Miss ya, love ya!

  67. Carrie

    first thing i’d make is some spinach artichoke dip that i tried once in my mini 4 cup food processor and totally overflowed the thing

  68. Kristen M.

    I would use the food processor to make my favorite hummus and black bean dips. I currently make these in a mini food processor which is small and overloaded. I would love the extra ‘kick’ and room that the KitchenAid processor would give me.

  69. Jennifer

    If I were to win, I would have so many uses for this food processor. First and foremeost would be to make our family recipe for Linzertorte for Christmas. It requires lots of chopped almonds. The dough is made in the food processor after using it to chop the nuts. I would try to make pastry doughs, pesto. I would probably be more likely to make things like slaws that require lots of chopping.

  70. Tara

    2 – There are a million recipes I pass up b/c I don’t have a food processor. Probably salsa. Chopping by hand is a huge pain!

  71. Kristen M.

    I do not yet have a KitchenAid appliance, although I have been coveting a stand mixer for as long as I can remember. It will be my prized purchase someday.

  72. Jennifer

    My fave Kitchenaid appliance is definitley my true blue (blue willow…lol) stand mixer! I have so many of the attachments and use it almost daily! I use the grinder to make my hubby healthy breakfast sausage patties. I use the shredder to make easy work of shredded cheese. I also have made apple chips using the slicer. I have the ice cream maker and am still experimenting with it. And of course, I use the mixer for breads, cakes, frostings, etc.

  73. Emily

    The appliance I actually am really wanting is a food processor, but just don’t have the funds right now. I want it to make pastry doughs like Ina Garten shows us on her show, and to grate cheese faster for my pimento cheese recipe.

  74. Emily

    I LOVE my kitchen aid stand mixer! It is the best appliance out there. I do enjoy my pink hand held mixer as well when I don’t want to get my stand dirty! πŸ™‚

  75. Loren

    This contest has been officially shared on my FaceBook page. I am keeping my fingers crossed that my friends don’t see it, because I want this baby all to myself. LOL!

  76. GrapeSugar

    I would make Pesto! and I could finally make a big batch of Peanut butter balls! You just need a food processor to make them correctly, and I would love one!

  77. GrapeSugar

    I LOVE my stand-mixer in Yellow!! I couldn’t make my ice cream without it, therefore, I could not LIVE without it!

  78. Loren

    Hello Again Novice~
    My response to “Tell me, if you were to win, what you would use your new food processor for!”

    As you may recall my tome to the immersion blender – my first charge would be to give that glorious tool a break. Once high summer season is upon us, vegetable chips come to mind – and I know I can get a more even result using the slicer than I can from a hand mandolin (and could save my poor hands the threat of more cuts from slip ups). Zucchini, carrot, sweet potato, parsnip – thin sliced, lightly fried in peanut oil – tossed with sea salt, and or mixtures of cayenne pepper, light brown sugar, cinnamon, curry, the list goes on.

    I should mention my fetish for white bean sage dip. A concoction of white kidney beans, added to translucently sweated white onion, garlic, and olive oil – mixed in the large bowl with aged Parmesan cheese, bunches of fresh sage, cracked black pepper, and thinned with a bit of chicken stock. Such a perfectly lovely appy or meal when offered with a variety of dippers. I could go on and on about the garbanzo bean, various types of hummus, nut butters, tart bottoms, perfect pizza doughs, pita doughs, tortilla bases, smooth vegetable cream soups, or properly blended and strained fruited wine coolers of all kinds (that have NOT been bastardized by Bartyle & James) but I won’t do that here.

    Suffice it to say – the processor would be in apt hands, treated well, and praised in a manner fitting to it’s many uses.

  79. Erin @ One Particular Kitchen

    My favorite is my PINK STAND MIXER!! I call it my Barbie’s Dream Mixer and it’s heaven. HEAVEN I tell you.

  80. Ali @ His Birdie's Nest

    Since I already have one, I’d give the food processor to my sister. She’s been using my mom’s uber tiny one… and then we’d make pesto pizzas with it πŸ˜‰

  81. Ali @ His Birdie's Nest

    My favorite KitchenAid appliance is my food processor, I use that thing all the time… mmmm Hummus πŸ™‚

  82. Loren

    Dear Novice~
    I am seriously in love with this processor. Should you choose my entry, I will worship, pet, polish and use it at every opportunity. Trust me…this baby will purr.

    “1. Tell me which KitchenAid appliance you own is your favorite!”
    This is not an ode to the stand mixer, although I do have one, and yes, it is fabulous. I believe the unsung hero from the KitchenAid collection is the hand KHB300 immersion blender with the chopper, whisk and standard stick blender attachments. I have used this appliance to the point of abuse. I should apologize to it, really, as it has hit every hot batch of “Lo’s Famous Red Sauce” every year when tomatoes, basil and oregano are in season. I look forward to making gallons of this heavenly concoction every harvest season, knocking down fresh basil chiffonad and a variety of herbs grown in my garden into chunks of fire roasted tomatoes, garlic, onion, and carrot. Gently pressing the blend button once I have pinned large pieces of the vegetables against the bottom of the pot. Intermittently lifting back up to the top of the sauce, pressing down more large pieces, blending until I have reached the perfect texture without introducing air to the mix. Every other model would make the sauce orange instead of rich, gorgeous red I can achieve with my KitchenAid. My friends line up for red sauce every year. It is stuff of dreams – base to pizza, dipper for garlic rubbed toasted baguettes, marinara over decadent pasta dishes, a base for minestrone soup, the list goes on and on. Long past the season, I enjoy unfreezing red sauce to make beautiful, easy, healthy entrees all winter long. It is always as delicious as the day it was made.

    I’m not sure how long this partnership will last between the immersion blender and I. I should write poetry about this thing – some of which will be dirty.

  83. bridget {bake at 350}

    Yes, you ARE a peach! I have a “big red”, too and I don’t know what I would do without him! That baby has cranked out THOUSANDS of cookies!

  84. Tasha

    I would love to have a processor with different size work bowls! Probably the thing I would use it for the most often would be hummus or to make bean/veggie burgers.

  85. Captain Micah

    I am slightly embarrassed to admit that my favorite Kitchenaid appliance is my hand chopper. Don’t you see how critical it is that I randomly get selected to win? These blisters on my hands need to go away! πŸ™‚

  86. Emma

    I love my teal kitchen aid stand mixer! without it i couldn’t make all my tasty treats. oooh and i love my teal blender as well. they’re perfect.

  87. Judith

    I love my KA stand mixer that has been going strong for over 20 years. If I win the ‘RED’ KA food processor, I would make pesto, hummus, smoothies, ground almonds for cakes and cookies.

  88. Susan Carroll

    My favorite Kitchen Aid appliance is the White Kitchen Aid Mixer my dad passed on to me. I’ve had it since 1991, and I would be lost without it!

  89. Leigh

    Also, the first thing I would make is hummus! I make it with an immersion blender now and this food processor would definitely make things easier.

  90. Christie

    If I won the KitchenAid food processor I would use it first to make Fresh Salsa with my own homegrown heirloom tomatoes and fresh cilantro.

  91. Christie

    My KitchenAid blender, in smashing red is my favorite! It’s got the power I want and it’s nice to look at. I’ve used it for everything from Pina Coladas to ice cream mixes. Love it!

  92. melissa

    We actually have four appliances. A Kitchen Aid Mixer, Oven & Washer & Dryer. If I won the food processor I would use it to grate cheese for nachos!

  93. Janet

    2. Tell me, if you were to win, what you would use your new food processor? I would use it to make homemade salsa. I haven’t made it in years and am craving it lately.

  94. Janet

    1. Tell me which KitchenAid appliance you own is your favorite? Sadly, I don’t have one. However, my mom has one of their mixers. I used it while I was growing up. It was a powerful machine (I loved it).

  95. Pamela Krest

    I think the very first recipe I would make would be homemade salsa, love the stuff ! I think I would give this food processor a very through work out haha I chop slice & dice all my stuff by hand,would be nice to be able to do it in way less time

  96. Pamela Krest

    I don’t own any kitchen aid products, but that hasn’t stopped me from drooling over them at the store.

  97. Erin

    Hey Jessica!

    My favorite KitchenAid product is my red hand mixer. It’s so cute and it was a gift from my fiance, which makes it rock even more.
    With the food processor, I’d probably make my own marinara pretty frequently. Living with a picky Italian man means we have to make all of our Italian food here, and a food processor would be a life saver!

  98. Renee

    I have needed a food processor for so long, it’s sad. I would use it to make sauces and salsas. I have a few Mexican mole recipes I’ve been dying to try!

  99. Rachael T

    2. If I win a food processor, I would use it for EVERYTHING.. but definitely start with a good coleslaw for a juicy pulled pork sandwich!

  100. Rachael T

    1. I love my Artisan perfect black mixer, looks super sexy in my kitchen and made my super dosa torte for my parent’s anniversary πŸ™‚

  101. Tammy

    Hi Jessica,

    I love your site!

    What a great opportunity to win a great prize…thank you.

    #1 I have a kitchen aid hand mixer…would love a stand mixer.
    #2 I would use a stand mixer for making my girls cookies and cheesecakes.
    #3 I “liked” you on facebook and left a comment as well.

    Finger and toes crossed/hoping I win!

    those bars look sinful! omg, I have to try them…. and what I would do with my KA? everything! dough, crushed graham cracker crusts…anything that I can manage it will be in it!

  103. Alex {raspberry quill}

    I use my kitchen aid stand mixer constantly. I would use the processor for so many dishes. It would be great for the bottoms of squares, or homemade toppings for ice cream. There is so much I would use it for…just can’t think of it all right now!

  104. Ashlie

    I don’t own anything kitchenaid, sigh – I’m dying for a standing mixer but would love to have this food processor and my first and favorite KA appliance πŸ™‚

  105. Sarah Christine

    And I just “like”ed your page on facebook! gosh I hope I win, it would be the best birthday present EVER!

  106. Sarah Christine

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE stand mixers, We have them at culinary school and they save my bread too! If i wont the food processor, I would probably use it most to make pasta dough :] save my shoulders all the work!

  107. Toyia

    My favorite KitchenAid appliance, thus far, is definitely my stand mixer. It is so versatile, and makes bread making so easy!

  108. Carole

    If I won the KA food processor, I’d probably make pizza dough and chop the veggies & shred the cheese with it. Getting hungry just thinking about it. Love the versatility of three different-sized bowls.

    Again, thanks KitchenAid for the generous giveaway. And thanks, Jessica, for hosting it here.

  109. grace

    and clearly, the very first thing i would make is pie dough. i might even make some filling to go into it. πŸ™‚

  110. veronica n martinez

    My favorite Kitchen Aid appliance is definitely my stand mixer. I got mine handed down to me from a special friend! I dont know how I excisted with out it!

  111. veronica n martinez

    PS the tequilla lime bars look delish.
    If i won the Kitchen Aid mixer I would deffinatly use it to make my cookie crust for cheesecakes, that i bake often!!

  112. veronica n martinez

    I just found your blog via Tastespotting! Thank you Love it, and I just “Liked” on FACEBOOK πŸ™‚

  113. Carrie

    2. If I won, the first thing I’d use it for it pie crust. Pie is my husband’s favorite food but I had making the crust….. that cutting in of all the ingredients is a pain!

  114. Carrie

    1. My favorite Kitchen Aid appliance is definitely my stand mixer. I don’t know how I ever baked a cookie before her… I love her!

  115. Taneka

    2. If I were luck enough to win this food processor I would finally try my hand at making mayonnaise as there is this Indonesian dish I love that requires making a curry flavored mayonnaise like sauce.

  116. Michelle

    Well, I’m a baker. So pie crust is number one on the list. Though I make a fantastic linzer-esque cookie bar that uses shredded frozen dough to sandwich the jam layer. Gotta use the shredding disc for that baby! And I’ve always been curious to try making pesto.

  117. Michelle

    Without question, my KA stand mixer. An old beauty that has seen years and years of cookie batter, frosting, whipped cream, meringue, cake batter, quick breads, yeast breads, and we own the grinder attachment and that’s seen it’s fair share of use, too. Couldn’t live without my KA stand mixer.

  118. Julie (Bananas for Bourbon)

    I LOOOOOVE my Kitchenaid stand mixer! I use it like 3 times a week, it is so wonderful. With a food processor what wouldn’t I do?! Salad dressings, shred veggies for coleslaw, puree vegetables. The list is endless!

  119. Taneka

    1. My favorite Kitchen Aid appliance is my immersion blender. I am surprised at how much I like this nifty little blender and how versatile it is as a tool.

  120. Heather

    Choosing my favorite Kitchen Aid appliance is tough, but I’m going to have to say that I LOVE my ice cream maker attachment for my mixer the most. There’s nothing like a bowl of freshly made strawberry ice cream with berries you picked that day.

  121. Ginger

    I borrow my roommate’s food processor all the time to make dips – hummus, pico de gallo, guacamole, etc. – and now that my roommate is moving out, I know that I’ll miss them both!

  122. Ginger

    I received a professional series Kitchen Aid stand mixer two Christmases ago and it is definitely my best friend in the kitchen because I am always baking!

  123. Cristen

    Ohhh I would definitely use this food processor for a whole lot of salsa! Pesto, veggie burgers, stuffed mushrooms, and falafel.

  124. Elaine Cooper

    I love the idea of interchangeable sizes; in the biggest size, I’d make gazpacho, and in the smallest, I’d make aioli.

  125. Elaine Cooper

    I think my favorite Kitchenaid appliances–it’s a tie–are my pasta roller and my immersion blender. I use the blender more, but feel so smug when I make my own pasta. Smugness is okay, yes?

  126. Carole

    I have a KA 75th anniversary stand mixer (it’s white w/ “diamond” sparkles–don’t worry, they’re subtle!). It is a workhorse. I bake so I use it make doughs, batters, icings, etc.

    KA products are the BEST! Thanks for this fun giveaway.

  127. Ann Grismore

    My favorite KitchenAide appliance is my stand mixer! I have the 6 Quart Pro style in shiny black that was a house-warming present from my Mom when I purchased my first home. I love it and use it weekly. My Mom has since passed away and the mixer reminds me of when we would cook & bake together as a kid using her KitchenAide mixer.

    I would use the KitchenAide Food Processor for home-made veggie burgers, chopping & shredding for salads, pizza dough, and blending eggs for omelets & frittatas!

  128. Stacy

    If I had an adequate one I would use it for hummus, make my own peanut butter (and other nut butters), and to shred cheese.

  129. Stacy

    I don’t have anything KitchenAid, yet I yearn for something! I have a tiny food processor that can’t compare to this.

  130. kristina

    I hope to make pie crust in the new kitchen aid processor. I usually buy the pre-made kind. Imagine the pies I can make this summer.

  131. kristina

    I use my silver kitchen aid stand mixer at least 3 times a week. It is my go to kitchen gadget and my favorite kitchen aid tool.

  132. Ruby Jonsrud

    My kitchen aid appliance is a blender and while it is certainly versatile and long (read that: very long) lasting, a processor would be such a bonus in the kitchen! I would use it for pesto, hummus, for salads and soups, in fact; it is a bit difficult to imagine a meal that would not employ this kitchen marvel in some way. This is the kind of appliance that would be cherished and cared for as part of the family because of the every day familiarity it would support.

  133. Laura

    If I won this processor, I would make my first pie. Pie dough is intimidating to me, and I (being a Cuban girl) don’t have much experience with pies. First thing would be to make a strawberry-rhubarb pie, followed by buttermilk biscuits.

    I would love to OWN THIS THING!!

  134. Laura

    No doubt my favorite appliance has to be my stand mixer as well. I’ve used it for everything from whipping egg whites to making dough to making cookies and cakes. I don’t know what I’d do without it. I’ve been able to explore so many more recipes because I have it. Hooray to KitchenAid!

  135. Kat

    I can’t even count how many times I’ve read through countless food blogs looking for recipes, finding one that sounds absolutely amazing, and upon further reading of the recipe, find out that it requires a food processor. Que me woefully hitting the back button and begrudgingly finding another, do-able recipe.

    I couldn’t say what I would use it for first, there are so many, over at least 50 that I know of that I would have to choose from! So many pestos, so many emulsions, so many nut milks!

  136. Kat

    Unfortunately, I haven’t been lucky enough to afford any nice appliances, so I don’t have a favorite KitchenAid appliance. If I when, this would be my first!

  137. Mengda Zhang

    Which is my fave? The standup mixer of course…and i’m sure many peeps agree. it’s so great because it does EVERYTHING. is there anything it can’t do?!

  138. Lindsey @ Hot Polka Dot

    I am a fan of yours on facebook, I follow you on twitter, and I just tweeted this. Thanks! Fingers crossed.

  139. Lindsey @ Hot Polka Dot

    I am a huge pesto fan so I would definitely like to try making a big batch of pesto to use on chicken pesto pizzas, manicotti or just plain pasta.

  140. Lindsey @ Hot Polka Dot

    My favourite Kitchen Aid appliance has to be my very own stand mixer which I use at least 3 or 4 times a week and swoon every time. I also have the stainless steel knife set which I adore, but nothing beats my love, my mixer.

  141. marie

    if i win this luxurious kitchen savior, i would use it to make doughs! all kinds of doughs! pizza dough, tart dough, linzer torte dough, all the best kinds. (right now i only have a little little processor that fits about one cup of basil to make pesto!)

  142. marie

    my one true love is my kitchen-aid hand mixer. it was given to me as a wedding present at my bridal shower and i love her so! i have a little house with a little kitchen and a litter counter, so until the husband and i hit it big, and cand afford a bigger counter πŸ˜‰ i will be sans kitchen aid stand mixer!

  143. Heidi

    What will I make? Hmm… Pesto for sure, but probably veggie burgers before that… oh, but gaucamole too… Even better, I’d make that banana soft serve ice “cream” that everyone’s been talking about lately… Yum πŸ™‚

  144. Shea M.

    I have been wanting to get a Kitchenaid food processor forever!! The favorite KA product I currently own would be my can opener. Yes, I love my can opener.

  145. Heidi

    I don’t own any KitchenAid appliances πŸ™ I guess that means that my food processor would be my favorite, if I won πŸ˜€

  146. Meghan

    I don’t have any KitchenAid appliances, even though I really want one of their stand mixers and food processors. My spatulas, ladels, and my can opener are KitchenAid though!

  147. Paula

    If I won, I would make LOTS and lots of hummus! I’m pregnant and hummus is my #1 craving. I do not currently own a food processor and I know I could make hummus better than any restaurant or store. It would be great to stop buying it and start making it!

  148. Paula

    My favorite Kitchen Aid appliance is my black stand mixer! My husband’s grandmother surprised me with it when we bought our first house, and I’ve since bought a billion accessories to go with it and use it all the time!!

  149. Rebecca Mitchell

    I received my Kitchen Aid stand mixer for a wedding present 10 years ago. This year we’re celebrating 10 years of wedded bliss and my stand mixer is still going strong! Without it, I’d never have been able to make pfeffernusse cookies. πŸ™‚

  150. Amanda Nichols

    My favorite Kitchenaid appliance is my White Stand Mixer. It is so special, because for my 22nd birthday my college roommates gave it to me! I have been using it weekly since! If I was to win the Food Processor I would be making spicy chicken burgers with sweet Hawaiian Hamburger buns! AMAZING!

    I just went and β€œLiked” The Novice Chef Blog on Facebook.

  151. Andrea F

    If I won the Cuisinart food processor (what a wonderful thought) – I would make several things shortly thereafter:

    1. Homemade Nutella – I adore this stuff, but last time I tried to make it in my immersion blender mini processor, I broke it πŸ™
    2. Indian food – from mint chutneys, to kneading naan and roti to eggplant and chickpea curry
    3. I also love Mediterranean breads, so I would make pita bread and then a whole line of accompaniments including homemade hummus, red pepper spread, babaganoush, tzatizki, etc.

    Good luck to all!

  152. Andrea F

    My favorite Cuisinart appliance is definitely my ice cream maker! Watermelon Mint Sorbet, malted milk ice cream, Salted caramel ice cream – and as soon as my local orchard allows me to pick blackberries – blackberry chip ice cream. Yummm!

    I will say that a food processor would be a close second if I owned one… πŸ™‚

  153. Jennifer

    If I were to win the food processor, I would make pesto from scratch. Then, for dessert, I’d make scones or fruit bars. I’ve always had to cut in butter into the flour by hand and I wonder if letting a machine do the work would make things taste better.

  154. Karin

    If I won this food processor…I would so totally try to make the macarons I was making when my food processor broke while grinding the almond meal and confectioners sugar πŸ™‚

  155. Amanda Nichols

    My favorite Kitchenaid appliance is my White Stand Mixer. It is so special, because for my 22nd birthday my college roommates gave it to me! I have been using it weekly since! If I was to win the Food Processor I would be making spicy chicken burgers with sweet Hawaiian Hamburger buns! AMAZING!

  156. Jennifer G

    My favorite kitchen aid product is my stand mixer given to me by my late grandmother. I use it for everything. It came with only the whisk attachment because she was convinced she would never use the paddle or dough hook and threw them out. It’s old and beige colored, but is still going strong! πŸ™‚

    If I were to win this food processor, I would use it for EVERYTHING! When I stay with my dad, I use his food processor at least once a day. I’d make salsa packed with cilantro for my mom who adores cilantro, I’d make butternut squash soup (my fav!!), meatloaf, breadcrumbs, pie crusts, and more! πŸ™‚

  157. Jodi Calhoun

    Well, I have one of the old classic stand mixers which I have actually considered pushing over it’s limit so I could buy a new one. So now, it has only one speed and I can’t afford to buy a new one. But I love it. Wish I could put it out to pasture.

  158. Jen

    If I won the food processor – the first thing I want to try is grinding my own chicken. I would much rather grind up chicken breasts than buy the ground chicken in the store for burgers.

  159. Julie R.

    I love my Kitchenaid 6 quart professional stand mixer! It’s plain white – I was afraid to committ to a colored machine, even though I love the red.

  160. Jen

    Great giveaway! I need a new food processor so bad. I have a cheapy Black and Decker that is not my friend. My favorite Kitchen Aid appliance is far and away my stand mixer. I got it in the Cobalt color for a wedding present. I use it all the time.

  161. Keegan

    I am still coming into my own financially so all my appliances are hand me downs, I *sadly* do not own any kitchen aid appliances! This beautiful food processor would be my first and definitely my favorite!!

  162. Julia

    My fave KitchenAid appliance is my red stand mixer too. My husband knows that if it ever breaks, no questions asked, I will need another one immedietly.

  163. katie m

    My favourite kitchen aid appliance would have to be my parents kitchen aid mixer. They got it right after they got married some 29 years ago, and that baby is still mixing. We’ve had some good times together. If I received this new fancy food processor, I would probably make some perfectly smooth humus. The little dinky thing I have now doesn’t like to make anything smooth. And as I don’t have a twitter, I liked you on facebook. πŸ™‚

  164. Sarah

    And if I were to win, I’d use the food processor for cookies! I have some really good cookie recipes that call for chopping up nuts in a processor.

  165. Kathy Meier

    I would use this mixer to make Pico de Gallo! Also, I would make these Tequila Lime Bars which look oh-so good!

  166. Michelle

    Broccoli Strudel is what I’d be making with a new KitchenAid food processor. It takes me forever to chop all the broccoli by hand!

  167. Michelle

    My favorite KitchenAid is my recently purchased anniversary edition stand mixer in Candy Apple Red with the glass bowl. I’ve wanted one forever and now that I have it I’m so glad. It inspires me to make all sorts of wonderful things!

  168. Alexandra

    I would make Chimichurri!!! They had a special on steaks at my local Central Market last week so we fired up the grill, served them with Chimichurri sauce, and washed it all down with a bottle of Chilean malbec. (As we are Food Processor-less we made the sauce in a blender…slight disaster – sprayed green sauce all over myself)

    I loved your blog – what fantastic pictures.

  169. Beth

    My fave KA appliance is my stand mixer. I picked it up at an estate sale, and it is still going strong despite being produced in the late ’70s!

  170. Donna

    I would absolutely make pesto with the food processor should I be lucky enough to win it!I grow basil in my garden & pesto anything is the best!

  171. Donna

    My favorite Kitchen Aid appliance is by far my stand mixer! I just can’t think of making bread without it! I’ve had mine for over 20 years! Great blog BTW!

  172. Leigh

    My favorite is also the stand mixer…I make bread, meringue, frosting, everything in it. With the stand mixer I would make homemade hummus!!!

  173. JulieD

    I would make a pesto with walnuts instead of pine nuts because we figured out the hubs is allergic to pine nuts. Thanks for this giveaway!

  174. JulieD

    I love my pink KitchenAid stand mixer. I appreciate it very much because I used to make buttercream with a hand mixer until it died, much easier to make buttercream with a stand mixer. πŸ™‚

  175. Paula Plachno

    If I had the food processor, I’d use it mostly for making pie crust and shredding cabbage. Weird combination of uses, but there you go!

  176. Paula Plachno

    I don’t own a Kitchen Aid appliance, but I’d love to have the big stand mixer and/or the food processor!

  177. Doreen

    I also have a red kitchenaid mixer and matching red blender. So a red KA food processor would fit perfectly in my lineup!

  178. Kitchen Runway

    There’s so much that you can do in the processor…make pie crust, chop nuts, make pesto & hummus. I can’t wait to make all of it!

  179. Ammie

    My KithenAid mixer is my favorite! I just ordered the ice cream attachment from Amazon and can’t wait to try that on it!

  180. Jessica E.

    I would definitely make lots and lots of pesto with the basil I’m currently growing in my garden! In pasta, on chicken, on a pizza…I LOVE basil pesto!

  181. Jessica E.

    I think my favorite KitchenAid item just might have to be this fancy food processor in silver! I currently don’t have a food processor, but I’m in desperate need of one. This year I started growing basil in my garden and, hence, I’ve been on a pesto kick lately! It’s really been a hassle having to constantly borrow my sister’s food processor.

  182. Jessica

    If I were to win the KitchenAid Food Processor, I would use it to make some of my favorites: pie crust, hummus, sun dried tomato pesto. The different sized bowls would be perfect for this!

  183. Dawn

    What would I make? Hummus, salsa, soup fixin’s, salad fixin’s and the list goes on for all the things I currently wear my arm out on!

  184. Jessica

    My favorite KitchenAid product is my stand mixer, in matte black. Its perfect for cakes and meringue, plus it looks great on my countertop all on its own!

  185. Katy

    I would make a lot of things with a processor but what comes to mind first is my salsa. I only have a 2cup processor now and I have to make my salsa in sections nd then mix it all together in a bowl…BUT…with a 12cup I could make it all in one step……love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  186. Nicole C

    In response to #2, I would use this food processor to make some strawberry avacado salsa! It is SO delicious! I have made it by hand several times, but it takes so long to dice all the ingredients. I would love to have a food processor to drastically cut down on the time it takes to make this!

  187. Nicole C

    In response to number 1, I do not yet own a KitchenAid appliance, that is why I NEED this food processor!! I am getting married in a few weeks, I really hope I get the metallic chrome stand mixer I registered for!!

  188. Bekkah

    I’d make some potato soup with it and as soon as the basil is ready, it will be pesto time! I have a little 4-cup processor which requires doing most things in several batches. I had soup coming out of the top last time I tried to make it πŸ™

  189. Amy S.

    I hate to grate cheese by hand, so the food processor would definitely be used for that! And maybe trying to make my grandmother’s pie crust…

  190. Amy S.

    I love my red KitchenAid Artisan mixer! I now have the courage to try breads! And it makes and awesome pizza crust!

  191. Bekkah

    I have a ‘Big Red’ as well… By far my favorite, the flour power that thing has is amazing! Makes my life (and my experiments) so much better!!!

  192. Christy

    What will I make with the processor? I would use it to chop nuts, crush graham crackers for pie crust, and make fruit salsa.

  193. Wendy

    I’ve wanted a food processor for YEARS!!! If I won it, I would make pie crust, after pie crust and mill my own pecans and almonds, etc…etc.. etc. πŸ˜€

  194. Heather

    I would use the food processor for many jobs. I would make homemade baby food in the 4 cup size bowl. It is so much better and cheaper than the processed stuff in the store. I also would use it make my homemade cranberry relish. I also would use it for making applesauce and apple butter when it comes time for preserving. These are just a few ways I would use the food processor.

  195. Jennifer

    With a new Food Processor, I would love to make vinaigrette dressings – I love the seemless blending of olive oil with the rest of the ingredients. Mmmm. Also, hummus, spreads, sauces – it would pretty much enable me to dress up any recipe!

  196. Heather

    I love my stand mixer. It gets used all the time! Before I got it I never baked because it just took too long to get everything mixed up my KitchenAid is great!

  197. Joan

    I have two KichtenAid appliances. My PINK mixer and PINK blender. The PINK mixer is my favorite and I use it for just about everything. I recently purchased the ice cream maker attachement! Yum!

  198. Jennifer

    I do not yet own a KitchenAid product, but I know my favorites will be the Stand Mixer and Food Processor! My love of watching the Food Network has inspired me to think I can cook anything with the right tools – I hope so! I will be married in less than 5 months and am hoping to grow my KitchenAid appliance collection!

  199. Debbie

    These look awesome! Adding these to my summer dessert list! My favorite KitchenAid is also my stand mixer, I don’t know what I did before I had it!

    I would use the processor to perfect my graham cracker crusts, I can never crush them fine enough!

  200. Amber Taylor

    If I won the food processor, I would use it for graham cracker crust, soups, bread and chopping and mincing!

  201. Emma

    I owned a KitchenAid food processor – 4 cups, at times I have to do 2 – 3 batches for larger amount.
    It did an excellent job!! I love KitchenAid!

  202. Danielle

    I am totally in love with my Kitchen Aid mixer is Gator blue! I love to make pizza dough in for our homemade pizza night. I also took the Wilton cake decorating class and it saved me so much time making the frosting and cake mixes.

  203. The Downhome Diva (aka MrsD05)

    My favorite Kitchen Aid appliance is my GRANDMOTHER’S nearly 50 year old stand mixer that I am still using today. I call her “Old Faithful” since she just keeps keeps on mixin’! Actually I just used it last night to mix up a Buttermilk Pie.

  204. Becky K.

    I LOVE my Kithenaid immersion blender! It is sooo handy!

    I would use my new food processor for everything. I swear every recipe I make requires a food processor and all I have is a little 2 cup one. I end up doing everything in little batches.

  205. Cydney

    Oh, those look yummy! My neighbor makes lemon bars like this from his Meyer lemon tree!

    My favorite is my standing mixer. My grandmother gave it to me as a wedding gift and she’s a classic southern lady, so it is classic white! I’ve since received the ice cream bowl and grinder attachments, which I love.

    What a great giveaway! Oh, the fruit I could puree for homemade ice cream and sherbet, if I had that food processor. πŸ˜‰

  206. Christina D

    I too am in LOVE with my Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer. I can’t even think about having to make some of my favorite foods without it!! My family loves new desserts and these Lime Bars sound amazing and would have to be the first thing to christen my new machine.

  207. Rachel

    I would use the food processor for pastry dough, big chopping jobs and for such treats as crab and wild mushroom savory cheesecake. I had a very nice but older KA processor that my BF broke while grating cheese…. don’t ask…. but he’s going to “fix” it. That was at Christmas so now I am stuck with my mini chopper and an ancient processor that someone gave me when I graduated from college many many years ago.

  208. Rachel

    Favorite KA appliance is my stand mixer. Had it for years, plain white classic and I use it every week several times a week and it is my bff in the appliance world.

  209. Magda

    I love my big red kitchenaid stand mixer as well… it’s just the most incredible addition to my life (well, with exception of my husband!)

  210. Becca B

    1. i don’t have any kitchen aid product : ( BUT if i were to have one – it would totally be a stand up mixer. omg what i would do for of those! i bake almost everyday and one of those babies would change my world as i know it!

    2. i would use my new food processor for EVERYTHING. including my famous guacamole and hummus – which if i were to win, i would be able to make in one batch instead of about a billion!

    3. i liked the novice chef blog! : )

  211. ErinsFoodFiles

    OOooooOOOoooOOOooo! I NEED to win this! I don’t have a food processor at all! My ONLY (and therefore favorite) KitchenAid product is my Pro600 stand mixer of course.

  212. Amanda

    I love love love my Mom’s stand up kitchen aid mixer! I use it for everything!!! I have put the pink one on my wedding registry in hopes of having one of my own…. or my Mom’s just might go missing πŸ™‚

  213. Sarah from 20somethingcupcakes

    If I were to win this fabulous mixer (in silver – to match my kitchen), I would definitely be making up serious batches of summer gazpacho. Everything from tomato to avocado to my favorite, green grape + almond! My food processor as it stands now doesn’t quite get the job done.

  214. Sarah from 20somethingcupcakes

    My favorite KitchenAid appliance is without a doubt my stand mixer, which was a gift from my boyfriend’s sister, as it was a wedding gift that had been sitting in her garage! I put it to much better use.

  215. Lilli

    Sadly, I do not own a Kitchen Aid product but I would LOVE to own a stand mixer. I’m one of those rare individuals that learned to whip meringue and whipped cream by hand. (And boy did my arms feel like jelly afterwards!!!!) I do own a hand mixer now, but it just isn’t the same. Kitchen Aid mixers are to me what sports cars are to most men lol.

  216. Angie

    My favorite appliance is definitely my Stand Mixer. I keep changing his/her name and gender. It’s metallic chrome so right now I’m calling him the Silver Surfer – but I think that’s because I have a surfboard/palm tree candle on the counter near it!

    As for how I’d use a new food processor – oh the possibilities, but I’m on a pizza dough kick so I’d want to try my hand at making doughs in a FP. I have a little guy that was a waste of money because I can’t use him that often πŸ™

  217. gertrude

    I have a KitchenAid mixer. If I win this food processor it will become very handy as my very old one just kaput on me last week. I will use it for making pastry dough and all chopping my nuts and vegetables.

  218. Lilli

    There are so many things I would use this food processor for!!! For starters, I could use it to make baby food for my son. I have a teensy food processor now and it limits me to making a tiny amount at a time so this one would be awesome. I also have a great recipe for food processor pizza dough which would make pizza prep SO much faster than kneading by hand or making it in batches in the small machine I have now.

  219. Kristin

    The FIRST thing I would use it for is a fabulous salsa recipe I have and then I think I’d try the black beean burgers you mentioned.

  220. Kristin

    My favorite KitchenAid appliance is my hand mixer but that is only because I don’t have any other ones. It is a fabulous little mixer but I’d love to knock it from it’s favorite spot with this food processor.

  221. Jessica F

    I would make buttercream frosting with it! Apparently you can make the frosting very quickly with a food processor – I would love to try it out. And of course, cupcakes to go with it. πŸ™‚

  222. Sarah Elizabeth

    I would use my Kitchen Aid food processor to chop nuts for cookies, and grind up things like mulled cider mix and chai tea to put into dessert bread and cookie recipes.

    I’ve had a Kitchen Aid stand mixer on my wish list for years. I have come across other stand mixers I might have been able to afford, but still I hold out for the day I can get the one I really want – a Kitchen Aid.
    Seeing as I don’t have any Kitchen Aid appliance yet, my favorite Kitchen Aid gadget is my icing bag and tips set, in pink.

    First, those Tequilla lime bars look delicious!!! They would be the perfect dessert to serve with a Mexican meal. Or eaten for breakfast. Whatever.

    Now for this awesome contest:

    1) My favorite KA product is of course my Artisan Stand Mixer. I also have names for my mixer. Black Beauty and Pretty Pretty Princess are two of my faves.

    2) I would probably use the food processor to shred carrots for my carrot cake cupcakes or to make oreo crumbs for my cookies & cream frosting. LOVE that is has three bowls!

    3) I am a fan of The Novice Chef on FB and I just tweeted about this giveaway!

    My favorite kitchen aid piece is my stand mixer. I just love it. Last night I used it to make homemade whipped cream in a flash. If I had this food processor the first thing I would make would be a cheesecake. I could grind my own graham crackers and nuts for the crust. I will be making these lime bars. Margaritas are my favorite

  226. Kelly

    Honestly I’d probably use the food processor for the tequila lime bars too. I’ve made them several times and they’re SO good. I usually call mine margarita bars though! And I usually add more tequila than necessary, hee! My friends call them “booze bars.”

  227. Kelly

    I actually don’t own any KitchenAid appliance, but if I were to win this one, it would be my favorite, because I won it and because I got it from The Novice Chef’s giveaway! Too cool!

  228. Val

    aaaaaaand in this lovely little food processor, I would make some sorrel pesto in one of the larger bowls and fake-y banana ice cream in the smallest one. Freeze some brown bananas (peel and chop them up before throwing them in the freezer for optimal non-frostbite handling) and add one banana, a tsp of almond butter, a tsp of cocoa powder, and a splash of milk for a super smooth frozen treat. And healthy. nom.

  229. AmyO

    I would use the food processor to make so many things but I would start with making an apple crostada! The dough is so much easier to make with a food processor and since I don’t have one…that poor apple crostada just never gets made. How sad is that?!

  230. AmyO

    My favorite KitchenAid appliance is my stand mixer and the extra attachments I have for it! Shredding cheese has never been so easy! Bread dough-so easy. I think the stand mixer changed my life! πŸ˜‰

  231. Amy

    I would use the food processor to make several different things, each in it’s own sized bowl! I’d definitely use the big bowl for some basic bread crumbs, since I always have to fill up the bowl two or three times in my regular-sized food processor.

  232. beth aka confusedhomemaker

    I have a Black KA Stand Mixer and love it. I would use the food processor for everything, seriously. Pesto, Hummus, Graham Cracker Pie Crusts, Baby Food & list goes on.

  233. lo

    Hate to give a repeat answer, but my KA mixer is the absolute best. The 6 quart bowl allows me to make a double batch of my grandmother’s schaum torte recipe in one fell swoop!

    As far as the food processor goes, it would be just perfect for whipping up batches of summer pesto to freeze!

  234. Emily

    If I won the processor, the first thing I would make is a big batch of pie dough…freeze half and make a cherry pie with the rest!

  235. Amy

    My favorite KitchenAid appliance is without a doubt our stand mixer. I love it! It was definitely one of our favorite wedding gifts!

  236. Dana

    If I won this food processor, I would use it to make pie crusts. but the suggested black bean burger does sound delish! Hmmm, decisions decisions decisions!

  237. Jennifer Peters

    I dont own any KA appliances Have heard great things about them though, But i would Love the red, It would make all my cooking and Baking so much easier!
    Im a FB fan and Twitter Follower πŸ™‚

  238. Maya C

    Hi! I don’t own anything from Kitchen Aid but I would LOVE the food processor! I have an itty bitty one so I have to reload and remove everything many times! I would make two things right away! Homemade salsa and a green rice with a cilantro and lime based sauce. I “liked” your facebook page!

  239. Lindsay

    Annnnd #2… you never realize how useful food processors are until you use them. We have a great pasta Trapanese recipe that is one of our go-to summer dishes, involves simply processing a ‘pesto’ of sorts but with tomato, almonds, and basil. 15 minutes and boom, it’s done. Yum!

  240. Dana

    My favorite Kitchen Aid appliance is my stand mixer. My inlaws gave it to use as a wedding present and I LOVE LOVE it! Some day I’ll buy attachments for it…

  241. Lindsay

    Our current favorite KA appliance is our stand mixer. Our current food processor is itty bitty and getting old since we use it so much, would love to upgrade to this beauty! πŸ™‚ Cross my fingers!

  242. Laura

    Food processors are awesome for making tart crusts, so I’m sure that my mini-tart pans would get more use if I won this one.

  243. Rachel

    If I won the food processor, the first thing I would make is pastry. I don’t have a food processor right now, and I find that pastry is one of the things that I hesitate to make by hand. Nova Scotian blueberries are incredible, and the season is just coming up, so I might make a blueberry galette. Next, I’d probably make my own walnut butter–wait, I guess I could make them both at once with the different sized bowls!

  244. Rachel

    I have yet to own anything by KitchenAid, but I covet one of my neighbour’s standing mixers. It’s an older model, and is a bit smaller than the ones available now, which I like.

  245. Emily

    This giveaway could NOT have come at a better time! My husband just broke my processor last weekend!

    My favorite KitchenAid item is my 6 qt Stand Mixer, I call her Betty! She’s my workhorse and I don’t know what I’d do without her!

  246. Whitney

    Oh, my dream is to get a red Kitchen Aid stand mixer of my very own. I have an old stand mixer which was probably a great instrument about 20 years ago…time for an upgrade!

    First thing I would make in a big food processor, if I had one, is some type of delicious hummus. It’s so easy if you’ve got a bowl big enough.

  247. Niki

    I love love love my kitchen aid mixer!!! I have been desparately wanting a new food processor since mine is only a 3 cup! I have a feeling this might take first place in the favorite list!

  248. Margie

    Oh man. The only Kitchenaid thing I own is their big can opener. I’ve had it for years but it’s great. I know. πŸ™

    If I won, I would make a better bolognese sauce. I’d love to puree the celery, carrots, etc. like you are supposed to. And now, I’m hungry.

  249. Cara

    I would use my new food processor for making pie dough! Or anything else I’ve seen Ina Garten make lately with one!

  250. Cara

    I have had my Kitchen Aid mixer since I was 15!!! I LOVE my mixer— but I just got a KitchenAid Hand Mixer for Christmas and I am in love with it too! Hard decision!

  251. The Nifty Foodie

    If I won this, I’d happily make macarons again. Last time I made them, all I used was my small mini chop and that resulted in a lot of almond/powdered sugar all over my counters, since I had to do it in batches…ugh!

  252. The Nifty Foodie

    My favorite KA appliance is definitely my stand mixer. It saved my life during the holiday season, when I volunteered to bake wayy too many desserts! πŸ™‚

  253. Becca H

    I have not only Tweeted about the giveaway (@BeccaCIT), but I’ve Facebooked it, and yesterday, I climbed Mt. Everest and screamed to the world about it, too! (OK, so it didn’t happen EXACTLY that way… but I was in my car… with the windows rolled down)


  254. Becca H

    If I were to win (or should I impart good karma and say WHEN I win!) that gorgeous 12-cup food processor, I will use it to make some incredibly flaky and wonderful pie crust. Then I’ll hop over to your blog and find an awesome filling for it! πŸ™‚

  255. Becca H

    I am sure (because you hear me rant excessively about him on Twitter) that you already know what my favorite Kitchenaid appliance is…. My dear, sweet, gorgeous, beloved stand mixer… KEITH!

  256. Mary

    I come across recipes all the time that make me wish I had a food processor; I honestly have a list going. But I think the first thing I would attempt would be scones– they give me no end of trouble without one.

  257. Victoria Zadoyan

    I love love love my Kitchenaid stand mixer. I still have more attachments I would like to buy, but I use it for almost everything!

  258. Annie

    I, Ann_M_Schneider, tweeted on Twitter re: this fab give-a-way.

    I am now anxiously awaiting to hear that I have won–hope hope hope πŸ™‚

  259. Annie

    I would use my NEW beautiful and oh so versatile new KA food processor to replace the nearly 28 year old Cuisinart one that now tends to bog down a bit. Specifically I’d make pie crusts–lots of pie crusts and give pies to everyone I know.

  260. Annie

    My favorite KitchenAide appliance is my stand mixer–my only complaint is that it always seems to be dirty . . . oh, that’s ’cause it’s always in use? Well then, never mind–no complaints then. πŸ™‚

  261. Sarah Y.

    First of all, I’m making those bars…TONIGHT. They look heavenly.

    Secondly, my all time favorite Kitchenaid mixer is my 4.5 qt. Stand Mixer that my mom got when I was about 3 (I’m 24 now). It’s sturdy, it’s dirty, and I love it more than anything else in my kitchen. Sure, my slow setting and 1st gear setting are burnt out. It’s okay. I still heart it.

    If I were to get that food processor, I would make…everything. Since mine died, I can’t make pie crusts at home (tragic, I know). Plus, my cheesecakes are made in the processor. Then everything like chopped veggies for any number of things. Wow…I’d kind of forgotten how much I liked having a processor around lol.

    I “liked” you on Facebook and I also posted to my profile about it. πŸ™‚

    Love your blog, looking forward to scouring your archives (I just found it via tastespotting).

  262. Ange

    And I would love to make sauces and aiolis with my new processor. The one I have now is so small and can’t handle much.

  263. Dunne'

    There are definitely a lot of things I would use it for, but the one thing I would look forward to the most is using for homemade dressings. Right now I have a teeny tiny processor, which works, but it doesn’t have a feed tube to pour the oil in and really make a successful dressing!

  264. Dunne'

    Well, I don’t have it anymore (long story), but my favorite KA appliance was my Stand Mixer! It was by far the best appliance and certainly most coveted appliance I have ever owned. I miss it terribly and hope to get another one someday (soon)!

  265. Scotti

    I think this food processor would be an awesome way to start my appliance collection. After these incredible looking Tequila Lime Bars (because only mean people hate lime bars), I would love to make peanut butter, pestos, bernaise and hollandaise (I’ve read that it’s quite easy to make these using a food processor and heated butter), julienne and pulverize everything…the options for me are endless!!

  266. Scotti

    I don’t have a favorite KA appliance because I’m 22 and just starting to build up my kitchen and have no proper appliances except for a beat up hand mixer (get it, beat up! it’s a mixer!) my mom gave me! And it is definitely on a shaky pedestal for favorite appliance.

  267. Katrina

    My favorite kitchen aid appliance is my beautiful red stand mixer. I use it literally six days a week, and cannot bake without it. It’s my baby!

  268. Anu

    I love my stand mixer. If I won, I’d make pie dough in it. food processors are the best for whipping up pie dough and pastry dough quickly πŸ™‚

  269. Jessica B

    My favorite kitchenaid appliance is my pink stand mixer, it helps me make so many wonderful things πŸ™‚
    If I had this stand mixer I will use it to help me make my bbq pizza (pizza made on the bbq) this summer and of course these yummy looking tequila lime bars.

  270. Connie

    If I were to win the food processor, the first thing I would make would be pesto! I love pesto and it is so versatile.

  271. Connie

    My favorite KitchenAid appliance is my submersion blender! I use it every day for protein shakes, so it is definitely the most helpful appliance in my kitchen!

  272. Agata

    I am now dreaming about a KA food processor, there are like trillion things I would use it for, one of them is an amazing chocolate cake which must be made entirely with food processor and because of that is now impossible for me to make… I would also use it for making soups – cause I’m a soup-lover, and sauces for sure too.

  273. Agata

    Just about a week ago I got a red KA Stand Mixer for my birthday and I totally love it, it is soo much better than my old hand mixer.

  274. Constance

    if i won there would be a thousand things i would want to make!! first of all a cheesecake which calls for a food processor and so far ive only made it with my mixer… probably some cashew butter for cookies, different pestos and lots more!

  275. Constance

    my favourite KitchenAid appliance is my pink stand mixer! its been sooo helpful over the past year! i wouldnt want to live without it

  276. karin

    I have yet to own anything Kitchenaid
    and in desperate need of a food processor.
    I broke mine when I was grinding almond mill
    and confectioner’s sugar! I would love for this
    To be my first Kitchenaid product!!

  277. Krystal

    I would use my food processor for making cilantro pesto, and sun-dried tomato pesto…two sauces that I’m itching to make from my garden. I’m waiting on my san marzano tomatoes to be fully ripe!
