I LOVE margaritas from a blender. But, since I discovered Dorie G's Creamy Lemon Tart, that might be my fave thing from a blender!

Sheila said...

I use my blender for margaritas!

Amy said...

Wow! What an awesome giveaway!

My favorite way to use a blender is to make margaritas and other frozen adult drinks hehe!

Lauren said...

Amber, you're so generous!! Anyway, now that I'm no longer puree-ing foods to make babyfood for my son, I'm back to frappacino-making! I'm in love with Starbucks and am on a quest to perfect (and maybe improve!) their delectable summer beverages. A spiffy new blender will surely aid my quest! :)

Maria said...

I use my blender for milkshakes! Yum!

Kab said...

I love making tasty soups with my blender.

Katie said...

Amber, wow! You are really hitting the big time, now. with giveaways??? that's awesome. Hope I win! Because I'd make banana berry protien smoothies ALLL day. LOVE. THEM.

Tasha T said...

Yay!

The only reason I even BOUGHT my $13 blender is because mangos were on sale. MMMM...mango smoothies.

madebymel said...

Yay! I love to make fruit smoothies in a blender, especially in the summer!

Grace said...

i'm with maria--strawberry milkshakes all the way for me!

Jodi said...

Our blender isn't quite as mighty as the one that you're giving away, but we tend to make our own frappucinos. It's certainly cheaper than Sbux!

Mrs. Csirke said...

Aside from the usual suspects like smoothies, soup, frozen drinks and milkshakes, I love using the blender to make dough, whether it be pizza or pie. It makes it so much easier!

Jennifer Lehner Photography said...

Wow! Very generous of you. :)

I've actually never had a blender of my own, but I remember dancing around the kitchen when I was little with my big brother. We'd dance while the blender was running, and then *freeze* when our mom would stop it to check to see if the ice was crushed! :)

So, I'd use it for dance parties and making milkshakes or smoothies - and the occasional margarita!

Kristi said...

I have a very ancient blender that is desperate need of retirement. I have a couple of recipes that I love to make in the blender. I do my mom's recipe for pancake batter. One of my favorites to remind me of home. I also use it for Strawberry banana smoothies and of course Strawberry Margarita's whenever I can find a reason to celebrate with one! This is like Gold to me!

Angie Harris said...

Yummy cold milkshakes...no question!

thefuturequeenofnebraska said...

We use ours for everything!

Pancakes are easy (and fluffy!) when made in a blender...

We love to entertain and make fun adult beverages ;)

I'm slowly learning to cook.. and beginning to make more and more things with ours.

My next task - making ice cream (and sorbet) for smoothies!

Thanks for letting me enter! :)

The Lund Five said...

I don't really use my blender because it doesn't work very well. But I do love to make smoothies and orange julius.

tbredice said...

Anew blender would make it easy to make my daughters healthy fruit smoothies.

Jen said...

One word: Margaritas

Nikki57 said...

That's easy. It's all about the Margaritas!!

Kristen said...

Whenever the family gets together....we make strawberry margaritas with fresh strawberries.
For the kids....we make fresh strawberry popsicles!

My cousins love 'em!

Aurora said...

You're so sweet!

I use my blender for smoothies in the morning (fresh or frozen fruit, slim fast and/or yogurt, protein powder, and splenda for sweetner). Then I use it for daquiries at night. I have also been known to use it to puree tomatoes when I'm too lazy to use my tiny food processor. I use the tomatoes to make homemade pizza sauce, which I use on the home-made pizza dough made in my breadmaker.

:)

Bridget said...

I make smoothies every morning for my husband and myself.

Elise said...

If I had a new blender, I would use it for (besides the conventional) grinding fresh spice mixes, flours, and making fresh ground coffee!

My poor old blender even chokes on ice cubes now, so that too often the answer to "will it blend?" is "um, no."

Molly R. said...

Oooo I've been dying to get a blender! I am looking to make some yummy fruit smoothies!

Sherri said...

I use my (dilapidated) blender a lot! I use it the most to make smoothies for myself and my 2 year old daughter. I also make a mean cream of asparagus soup in the blender!

Liza said...

I make smoothies and protein shakes!

ChristinaPAC said...

Oreo milkshakes and strawberry daquaris :)

Kelly said...

EGGNOG!!!!!!! I love to entertain, especially during the holiday season. I use my grandmothers nog recipe and whip it up real good to get a thick froth. Ok, so its not the "traditonal" method, but it gets the bourbon in flowing quicker :)

ellenann0313 said...

As already mentioned a couple times, my blender is almost always used to blend up margaritas!

mrsdanigirl8 said...

I use my blender for many a thing... not just frozen drinks! I make soups (butternut squash, tortilla, tomato, etc), purees (ala Jessica Seinfeld - broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, etc as well as pureeing tomatos), salsas, dips. You name it... I did it in a blender.

My blender broke shortly before we were married and if we weren't blessed with a food processor I wouldn't have known how I'd go without blending/chopping/pureeing in the blender. If I had a KA blender to be a companion to my KA processor than it would be heaven in my kitchen!

Tiff said...

Wow - very generous of you! My favorite way to use a blender is for milkshakes!

Krista said...

i use it most often to make salsa! What a great giveaway..hope I win!!

lifeasamama said...

this is a little embarrassing, but i've never owned a blender. my mom didn't own a blender. i grew up using a food processor for everything, so i use it now. i also have an immersion blender which i use all the time, especially in soups or even to puree fruit to add to pancake mix. mmm. but i don't have a blender.

Young, In Love, and Debt Free said...

I love to blend up fixings for guacamole. My husband doesn't like it so chunky so the blender helps smooth it all out. Also great for shakes.

Shawna said...

My favorite way to use a blender is for milkshakes and frozen coffee drinks.

Playful Professional said...

I love making smoothies for breakfast in the morning!!

Laura said...

I use mine for homemade BBQ sauce! It's perfect, and is all natural and organic. YUM! I've also used it many times to make my favorite tomatillo salsa and to make a few salad dressings. (And of course more than a few margaritas!)

Donna said...

I use my blender for soups and frozen drinks. This nice KA blender would be much better for margaritas than the current one I have. :)

TPOX said...

We need a new blender like it's nobody's business! Normally I'd say smoothies are my favorite recipe, but right now it is Strawberry Mango Frozen Yogurt (which makes me want to throw the blender through the sliding glass door - GRR!).

amanda. said...

Fun giveaway!

I use my blender almost everyday for smoothies. My toddler isn't a fan of fruit so it's the only way to get some in him.

Tiffany said...

What can't you use a blender for? Salsas, soups, sauces, and OF course Cocktails!! :)

Jenn said...

I use mine for MARGARITAS baby. I also use it for these fabulous banana shakes I grew up with. Bananas, sweetened condensed milk, and ice. Brings me right back to being 8 and coming in for a break from running around outside. memories...

Brenda said...

Pick me!!

I love to use my blender to make strawberry-blueberry-raspberry smoothies. Yum!

My blender is super old and cranky. Totally time for a new one!

Renee said...

I got an error, so I'm not sure if my original post made it or not...

My favorite things to make with my blender and filling for cheesecake and my favorite dip - Creamy Jalapeno! (The recipe is one of the few on my new blog - alittledabwilldoya.wordpress.com)

Ms. said...

Wow, thanks for the giveaway!

My favorite way to use a blender is definitely for making smoothies. We always keep nonfat yogurt on hand and bags of frozen fruit stocked in the freezer. It's a great way to satisfy a sweet craving and really filling too. Our blender is a little, uh, pitiful though and takes it's sweet time chopping up those frozen strawberries.

Urban Cowgirl said...

Blenders are great for breakfast smoothies to share with your girlfriends!

cessc said...

Hi! Thanks for a very cool give away I live making peach milkshakes in the blender sometimes with liquer added (shhh) :o)

Pancake batter is very fluffy when made in the blender and its easier to pour!

Jessica said...

Andria said...

I love to make frozen drinks and smoothies with my blender! Anything from virgin piƱa coladas to a raspberry fruit smoothie....yummy!

Trisha said...

chelley325 said...

Ours gets used most often for protein shakes for Nick - milk, chocolate protein powder, peanut butter, a banana, and a splash of flaxseed oil. Not terribly exciting ;-)

Lana said...

My blender is for making fruit smoothies, strawberry daiquiris and South Beach diet pancakes.

Chicky said...

My fav thing to make in the blender is Strawberry/peach smoothies for me and Chocolate Malts for DH.

RebeccaT said...

Since I'm trying to get 'fit' for my upcoming wedding...my inherited ghetto 1970's olive green blender has become my best friend in the kitchen lately to whip up healthy meals.

Oatmeal Cottage Cheese Pancake batter(soo tasty), fluffy egg whites for omlettes, and protein smoothies are three of my fave breakfast treats to blend!

Now I just need to motivate on down to the gym...;)

Trice said...

Ohh. I love my blender for frozen drinks. Which makes me think I might need to pull it out today. =)Fabulous.. It even has the spout so I can just get my drink without picking up the blender.

deLa said...

I use my blender to make my crepe batter. It is easy to measure the wet ingredients and mixes up well. Plus it pours out nicely right into the pan.

Satan said...

OMG I love blenders! And, I have been reading your posts for awhile So cool! I got divorced recently and well the ex husband got the freaking thing in the divorce. Yes, I really hate him. I use to make everything in it. I made salsa.

But, at this time it is not at the top of the list :( Oh and SMOOTHIES! Shall I even say more? Stick a banana in a blender with a cup of yougart, ice and a little milk! Total pick up for the day! And healthy! XOXO

Anonymous said...

I like to whip up eggs for omelets. You know that is secret to a real fluffy eggs!!?? I put in about 12 eggs, I have 5 children, and turn the blender on. I let it run for about 5 minutes, longer if I have the time! All that air whipped in makes for the most yummy, fluffy eggs :)

lynsy said...

Homemade salsa - throw a big can of crushed tomatoes, some tomato paste & whatever you like in your salsa (jalepenos, green chilies, lime juice, garlic, etc.). Blend for a few seconds, chill & eat. So delicious & a million times better than that Pace stuff.

northdakotablonde said...

I'm a simple kind of gal I suppose... I just started using our blender, we got it for a wedding gift in October 2006!! I have a little kitchen and have to keep all "extras" in storage downstairs, and the blender was an extra. I had some really ripe strawberries and thought they'd be great in a smoothie... so that was my first use for it and I just bought a flat of strawberries at costco! yum!

Debbie said...

Sweetie Cakes said...

I use my blender to make mac & cheese. The recipe I use calls for blending what will be the cheese sauce and it includes cottage cheese. I also use the blender to make sweet potatoe pie because it gives it a lovely texture. And of course the occasional pina colada.

JadeMerie said...

I use my blender to make fruit smoothies, Yummy!

Nicole said...

I love making fruit smoothies, pina colodas, and milkshakes!

BJH said...

If I had a blender (No blender was received as a wedding gift:( ) I would use it for strawberry margaritas, yummy or a milkshake, it would be a hard choice. Both would be great options, should it ever get warm in MN!!

Emily said...

http://daisyface.blogspot.com/2008/05/in-kitchen-with-baby.html This is my most recent favorite thing to use my blender for - but I bet it'd be much easier with an amazing KitchenAid Blender :) Chai tea mix making with my baby boy!

Ryan and Ashley said...

My favorite thing to use the blender for is Pina Coladas! I don't drink, so no alcohol involved, but the ingredients are as follows... frozen strawberries (and pineapple, if you want) a little ice, pineapple juice and the key...Coconut CREME (NOT milk!) These will be the best Pina Coladas EVER! kentuckybakers dot blogspot dot com

The Yates said...

AH! What a fun idea :) I read your blog... and STEAL your recipes all the time.. bwah ha ha!

Sandra said...

Mine is a toss up. Banana smoothies or margaritas. But if I *had* to choose, margarita wins hands down. ;)

HoneyB said...

My favorite ever is the banana smoothie. I grew up with my mom making them for me in her blender and that was the main reason for my owning one! I have graduated on to frozen drink's like daquiris and margaritias, but banana smoothie is still my favorite!

USA Kiwi (aka Kylee) said...

I use a blender to make margaritas, smoothies, frappuccinos, and pesto.

Thanks so much for the chance. You are a sweetie!!!

Kari said...

I love making orange julius for my kids!

Misty said...

About a year and a half ago my husband had to have jaw surgery, so all his meals for 6 weeks after that were made in the blender. Because of that, my blender (a cheap-o blender anyway) has pretty much been shot. BUT, if my blender worked a little better, I would love to make peanut butter shakes and fruit smoothies!

Barbara said...

What would I do with a new blender? Margarita's! Ole'

judygr64 said...

Thanks for sponsoring this great giveaway. I love KitchenAid products.

Blenders come in handy for so many things, but my favorite uses would be a fruit smoothie or a margarita.

bekah said...

Ummm, homemade Caesar dressing...

Hollandaise sauce for my eggs benedict...

homemade orange julius... (half orange juice, half water, ice, vanilla extract, and the secret ingredient - meringue powder)

Do I have to choose?

Deborah said...

What a fun giveaway! I use mine mainly for protein shakes. But it is great for so many things!
