Every single week, Ree Drummond gives us something else to be excited about. Whether it's her Walmart bedding line, the construction of a new boutique hotel in Pawhuska, or her new portable slow cookers made for game day, she just gets us. A home cook at heart who simply can't go to the grocery store every night of the week and must plan-ahead to feed her ranch family, cowboys and all, Drummond understands how to make delicious classics in your own kitchen, shortcuts and all. That's why when I learned her new cookbook, Come and Get It: Simple, Scrumptious Recipes for Crazy Busy Lives, comes out October 24, I was so excited that I pre-ordered one on Amazon.
Of course, the Pioneer Woman was one step ahead. From now until Saturday, October 21, she is holding a giveaway for the most beautiful hand-painted KitchenAid stand mixer that's themed just like her new cookbook. Nicole Dinardo at Un Amero hand-painted the mixer herself, and you have to see the incredible details.
The floral pattern isn't too seasonal and with the variety of wildflowers, it would look stunning on your counter any time of year. The bright color would make any photos you snap of this beauty entirely worth posting to Instagram or Facebook for the mixer appreciation alone.
The gingham design is patterned after the rustic look, a design scheme popular in so many states, it's taking the country by storm thanks to Ree Drummond and the "Fixer Upper" crew. Check out the closer detail and the heart trim inside the gingham.
Not many kitchens would pair this rich teal-turquoise color with the orange trim, but it just works so well together, we might start seeing this color combination pop up in kitchens everywhere after this. To enter the giveaway, click here and answer a simple question at the bottom of her post.
The winner of this mixer would certainly embrace the bright color scheme. In fact, I can even think of a few pretty utensils that would pair perfectly with this stand mixer. However, the giveaway is mostly about Drummond's new cookbook and we cannot wait to see it. Did you know she's heading out on book tour, too? Check out the full list of cities she's stopping in. Every region of the country is covered!
