Hey Laura, where are the healthy KitchenAid recipes?

Valinda asks:

Back in May I had the incredible good fortune to win a KitchenAid stand mixer at a conference I went to. I’ve made ice cream (shelled out extra for the attachment; so worth it!), bread, cookies, and mashed potatoes. With the holidays coming up, I’m tempted to just churn out a bunch of cookies, but I’d also like to use it to make something that could pass as healthy. Any suggestions or ideas?

See? This is exactly why I don’t have a KitchenAid. As much as I love these beauties, I don’t need any more encouragement to make cookies!

There are in fact healthier ways to use your KitchenAid mixer, other than use it as shiny countertop decoration. But it’s going to cost you!

It’s all about the attachments, V. Check (some of) them out:

Pasta Roller Attachment

Pasta Maker (Extruder) Attachment

Slicer/Shredder Attachment

Citrus Juicer

Grain-Mill Attachment

Fruit/Vegetable Strainer and Food Grinder


After you’ve shelled out several hundred more dollars for your attachments (oh! oh! shop through my links!), buy yourself The Mixer Bible: Over 300 Recipes for Your Stand Mixer. This’ll tell you how to put all those new gadgets to use!

Soon you’ll be grinding your own grains for homemade bread, rolling sheets of pasta, making macaroni, and even stuffing sausages - if you dare!

Anyone else have advice for Valinda? I know at least one of you out there has been making pasta with your KitchenAid - is it worth getting spendy?

Hey Laura, I think... Hey Laura, where are the healthy KitchenAid recipes?
