Instant Raspberry Frozen Yogurt and a KitchenAid Giveaway! #CookForTheCure


I am partnering with KitchenAid in support of 1000 Cooks For the Cure. We are giving away a new KitchenAid Stand Mixer in Raspberry Ice! I hope you will consider hosting a get-together in aid of this important cause.



What is 1000 Cooks For The Cure?

1000 Cooks For The Cure is KitchenAid’s annual program that aims to enlist 1,000 cooks from the U.S. to host a get-together with friends, family or colleagues anytime from July 18-27, 2014, in order to support the fight against breast cancer. The get-together can be big or small, from a book club meeting to a backyard barbecue. It can even be a party at your office or work place. It’s very possible that you are already planning a get-together as it is, so consider registering your party with the KitchenAid program and raising a little money for a great cause.

In lieu of a host gift, guests are encouraged to bring a donation in any amount to support the fight against breast cancer. Visit for more information on the Cook for the Cure program.

To register a party with the program, go to, where you will be assigned a host ID number. 

I know few people these days whose lives have not been touched by breast cancer. Mine certainly has, several times over. My maternal grandmother died of breast cancer when I was a child, and my aunt on my father’s side is a breast cancer survivor. And in 2002, my father’s wife lost her battle with breast cancer that had metastasized to her lungs and brain. Hers was a long, painful and bitter fight, and she left behind a 16 year old son, so I have seen first hand the devastation that breast cancer can cause. I don’t doubt that many of you have your own stories. I urge you to consider hosting a Cook For the Cure event.

So what’s in it for you?

What, you mean besides the joy and satisfaction of supporting a great cause while hanging out with friends and family? Well, KitchenAid is kindly allowing me to give away one of their gorgeous 5-Quart stand mixers, this one in Raspberry Ice. How gorgeous is that? You can the giveaway enter with just a comment, but if you do register a party with 1ooo Cooks For the Cure, you get 10 extra entries!

Win Me!

Please note that KitchenAid is sponsoring this giveaway. I have received no compensation or product and all opinions are my own.

They also asked me to create a pink recipe in honour of the event and I was more than happy to oblige. It happens to be a ridiculously easy recipe, but we like easy, especially in the high heat of summer. This is something you can whip up and serve to your guests in a matter of moments. The trick is to use frozen berries, as they will give your yogurt the prefect consistency without the use of an ice cream maker. Just pop your berries and yogurt into a blender or processor, give it a whiz and bam, Instant Frozen Yogurt! You can make it with any berry you choose, but frozen raspberries give it a delightful pink colour, perfect for a 1000 Cooks For The Cure party.

So once again, I sincerely hope you will consider hosting one of these easy and meaningful events. And then you can come on back on the 18th and enter my KitchenAid mixer giveaway!

    we lost my dear sister in law to breast cancer 12 years ago and every year the entire extended family walks at the St. Louis Komen race every year in her honor…..she missed dearly! This is such a great cause and I love the idea of making pink food! The ice cream is fabulous Carolyn! I need to pull out our ice cream maker (or get the KA ice cream attachment) and make this and I think I’ll add some chocolate slivers! YUM!!

  2. says

    This is such a gorgeous frozen yogurt — and for such a worthy cause! My aunt passed away from breast cancer a few years ago, so I (and the rest of my family) really appreciate you working to bring awareness to it. :) And the more frozen treats, the better right now — it’s 100°+ where I live and that isn’t changing anytime soon!

  3. Whitney says

    I am so glad I found your site. My son has just started the low glycemic index treatment diet for his epilepsy and with 3 younger siblings, it’s hard for him when he feels left out of a treat every so often. There is such limited recipes on the internet with the nutritional info that we need to know and your recipes are incredible. So thankful and I cannot wait to try a few. At the moment I am slowly building up the pantry as it is expensive and hope to come up with a good nut free granola bar (as I forgot to mention he is peanut, tree but allergic which is making it a challenge!!!) Anyhow here is my question: To make it seem more frozen, do you think if I put the greek yogurt in the stainless blender and placed it in the freezer to freeze and then blend all together it would turn out more like an harder ice cream consistency? I hope to search on amazon now and find some swerve sweetener. I have tried out the Erythritol but not a fan of it in brownies so far. Maybe ice creams and peppermint patties.

    • Carolyn says

      I think you are better off blending it up and then putting it into the freezer for 30 minutes to an hour for a firmer consistency.

  4. alana jones says

    Love how you are bringing awareness for this cause! I have had several family members and friends affected by breast cancer. Thank you! Would love to get the mixer! Thanks!

  5. says

    Wow, this fro-yo looks amazing! What a great recipe to pair with the Kitchen Aid! While my life hasn’t been personally touched by breast cancer, I live in constant admiration and awe of those who have fought this terrible disease. It’s activities like this that bring awareness to the problem…and hopefully find a cure to end it forever! Thanks, Carolyn!

  6. Tamra says

    Beautiful looking fo-yo. My god mother battled breast cancer 3 times, finally losing the battle when I was 10. I know a lot of things have changed since that time, but we still have a ways to go. When my sister-in-law was diagnosed for the second time I agreed to run a half marathon with her after her chemo was complete. It was an honor to help her celebrate life.

  7. Diane W says

    To be quite honest I do not know anyone close to me that has had breast cancer. I guess I am one of the lucky ones. I do love this color! And, the fro yo looks awesome!

  8. Jen says

    My grandmother and several family members and friends affected by breast cancer. Thank you for doing this! LOVE the color of the mixer!

  9. Marisa says

    One of my sorority sisters has battled breast cancer and has been a part of the SCAR project. She is definitely someone I look up to!

  10. LoriAnne in Oregon says

    We lost my dear Aunt Barbara a few years ago to metastasized breast cancer. She fought a long and brave battle, but it took her in the end. Thanks for the opportunity. The mixer is just “wow” worthy and the recipe sounds yummy!

  11. lisa says

    I have had several friends and families members fight breast cancer. It is a terrible disease and we need to find a cure!

  12. Leslie Behringer says

    Both my sister and sister-in-law are two times breast cancer survivors. One was first diagnosed at 20 and the other at 34. Earlier diagnosis and more effective, less toxic treatments are my prayers.

  13. Joan says

    This month marks my 10 year anniversary of the end of 6 months of chemo and 7 weeks of radiation. We HAVE to find a cure so no one else has to go through that!

    • Carolyn says

      Wow, Joan. I do want to say “happy anniversary”, although it’s a strange thing to say. I am glad you are 10 years past it!

  14. Deb Brandt says

    Great cause – has affected so many people… your recipes and just added this one to my collection from you! Thanks for all you do!

  15. Jennifer says

    I never realized it was in my family until my husband’s family member went through it.
    I work in a church office and handle numerous prayer requests through the week. Cancer and heart related illnesses are the hardest ones to carry.

  16. Lisa Thomas says

    Breast cancer has affected so many people. I’m fortunate to not have lost anyone to it, but have consoled friends who have.

  17. Janet Tanner says

    I lost a wonderful friend to breast cancer. Seeing everything she went through in her fight was such an inspiration. She fought with determination and grace. Her loss has left a hole in the fabric of my life.

  18. Sarah says

    My Grandmother and my Stepmother both had a double mastectomy from breast cancer, both beat it and although my Grandmother has passed she lived to be 92. Being that it was so close in my family, it definitely makes you more aware of how important it is to do monthly self exams and whenever anything suspicious arises always bring it up to your Dr.

  19. Bonnie says

    Great cause. Cancer has touched so many of our friends and family. We lost my grandmother when she was 55, much too young. Praying for a cure so that future generations don’t have to go through this.

  20. Jolene says

    Thank you, Carolyn, for the recipe! It looks delicious and easy, what not to love, huh? :) My one very good girlfriend lost her mom to breast cancer 15 years ago, she was like a second mom to me. Cancer is such an ugly illness.

  21. Cindy says

    I’ve known several people that have fought breast cancer. My Mom is a 12 year survivor. Odds were not in her favor add she had a very aggressive form. She had a double mastectomy and it was also found in her lymph nodes. Hard times.

    • Carolyn says

      I agree, hard times. My father’s wife was a survivor and 5 years later, it ended up in her lungs.

  22. Jane G says

    I had a bilateral mastectomy 3 1/2 years ago followed by a colon cancer diagnosis a year later. Eating a ketogenic diet is now my way of life and I love ADIDAF!

  23. Carolyn S says

    My aunt battled and lost her fight to breast cancer. I signed up to host to show my support. I also do a number of 5k’s every year and raise funds for various orginaztions.

  24. says

    I’ve had two dear friends diagnosed recently…one older, one younger than me. In an instant these moms, wives, sisters, friends’ lives were changed forever. I have learned to treasure every day we are given.

  25. says

    My mother had breast cancer. She’s so strong and such a fighter – she never missed a day of work. She is such an inspiration to everyone who knows her. I’m so honored to call her my mom!

  26. Julie says

    My very good friend has enjoyed good health after surgery and chemo to combat breast cancer. That statement can sound deceiving–I make it sound simple, but it was not.
    4 1/2 years ago I had 18″ of my colon removed due to colon cancer and shortly before, I lost a very dear, long-time friend as a result of pancreatic cancer.
    Hopefully, we can reduce the statistics with this more healthy way of eating. Had I known I was feeding the cancer 5+ years ago, I might never have had cancer.

  27. Beverly Hock says

    I can’t think of anyone who has not been affected by this dreaded disease. Love this idea & your recipes.

  28. Cindy says

    Having friends and family of friends stricken with breast cancer, I have been effected by breast cancer, but working in a GYN office over the past 22+ years, I am constantly aware of it, as I see women of all ages afflicted with breast cancer of all degrees and outcomes.

  29. Amanda Sakovitz says

    One of my best friend’s mom had breast cancer but she is now in remission. I do a walk every year in May to raise money for the cause and cure.

  30. Jen says

    I lost my Granny to breast cancer. I’ve never forgotten how this horrible disease robbed me of one of the most important people in my life.

  31. Kimberly Wedel says

    Can this be made with something other than Greek yogurt? I am trying to stay away from yogurt. Too many carbs for me.

    • Carolyn says

      I don’t think it can be made as is with anything that’s not as thick as Greek yogurt. Perhaps coconut cream? Take a can of coconut milk and put it in the fridge overnight. Turn it upside down the next day, open it, pour of the water and use the thick cream. That would probably work.

  32. Amanda says

    Thank you for everything you do to help! My aunt has battled breast cancer twice now, and survived both thank goodness – but there isn’t a day that goes by that I am not fearful for all the women in our family and try reminding everyone to go in for check ups and donate when they can.

  33. Marina says

    Breast cancer runs in my mother’s side of the family. My aunt underwent years of treatment and is now cancer-free, but we lost a great aunt several years ago to this disease. It’s always a nagging concern for all the women in my family, but we try not to let it control us. Awareness and regular self-examinations are the key to detecting problems early.

  34. Esther R. says

    My grandmother had breast cancer. I’m a 2 time survior of cancer, the last time bit me bad. A very horrible disease. Great looking recipe.

  35. says

    Great giveaway for a great cause- my great grandmother died from breast cancer. My step-mom & both mothers in law also had their battles with it. It’s terrible.

  36. Anne-Marie Cain says

    Wonderful looking recipe! I can’t wait to try it! I have a very close friend who battled (and beat!) breast cancer. She’s been cancer-free for many years now! Thanks for the work you are doing for this cause. :)

  37. Shauna Skinner says

    Far too many people have been affected by this horrible cancer. I hope to live to see a day when few to none are!

  38. Jennifer McLeod says

    My mom was diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer at the beginning of this year. She has already had a double mastectomy and is currently undergoing chemotherapy and then will have to do radiation. She’s also waiting on the results of some genetic tests that if they come back positive she will more than likely have to get both of her ovaries removed. This isn’t something that you ever expect to happen to you or your family and its quite a shock to the system when it happens. It’s really brought home how fragile life is and I’ve been trying to improve my relationship with my mom since then. Who knows, this could be the last Christmas I have with her this year. If I win the mixer I’m going to be giving it to her as a Christmas present because I already have one and I know she would really enjoy it. She loves to bake and cook.

  39. Sharon says

    I have been very fortunate not to have anyone close to me be afflicted with breast cancer. My heart goes out to all of the families that have had to endure this tragedy.

  40. says

    All I can think about now is you dad’s wife and her son. Tragic.

    You do so much to raise awareness on so many things. That’s why you continue to be my favorite food blogger!! Well…it’s one of the many reasons :-)

  41. Heather Merchant says

    I think 1000 Cooks for the Cure is a great idea, which supports a great cause. Many years ago I lost my grandmother to breast cancer. She was the one that got me into cooking in the first place. When other kids went outside to play; I was standing on a stool in her kitchen, learning how to cook and bake. I can really say my passion for baking came from her. She would always say “Add a little extra love!” normally this was in reference to butter or sugar but I swear you could taste the love in her dishes” I am hosting a party in her honor.

  42. Betsy R says

    Breast cancer has touched my life in many ways. A grandmother who beat it, a Girl Scout troop leader who beat it, and sadly my high school biology teacher lost her battle with it.

  43. Sue Huckins says

    This is an amazing way to raise awareness and money for the Cure of Breast Cancer! Thanks for the opportunity to enter.

  44. Heather Windham says

    In a few weeks it will be 5 years since I lost my Mother to breast cancer she was only 44 years old she battled with it for a couple years before she lost the fight it was a very devastating time in my life I just turned 22 I had a little sister who was only 13 and it took us both a long time to bounce back into life

    • Carolyn says

      Wow, Heather, I am so sorry. My younger half-brother was only 16 when his mother died of breast cancer.

    • Latisha says

      My Grandma had breast cancer almost 20 years ago. She help in raising me in my teen years and is very important to me. I am very thankful that she survived this.

  45. Melissa says

    Hi, so cool. I love the color of this. I am hosting at least one get-together in that time frame, I’ll have to see if I can make into an event for this. :)

    • Carolyn says

      That would be wonderful, Melissa! I am trying to see if I can get some girlfriends over for a drink, just to host a small one!

  46. krystal says

    I don’t really have a story about how my life has been touched by breast cancer but I did sign up to host an office potluck.

  47. Stephanie says

    I’ve lost a lot of family to cancer – thanks for supporting such a worthy cause! And supporting it with FroYo is even better! 😉

  48. Lynda says

    Such an easy good recipe. Thank you for all your time & effort you put into your blog & creating for us. I really have no family left, but I did lose my beloved mother in law to pancreatic cancer – so sad…

  49. Windy P. says

    My grandmother passed away due to cancer. She also had alzheimer’s, which if you’ve ever known anyone with that it makes noting the early signs of cancer much more difficult. What they believe began as breast cancer metasticized and spread throughout her body before it was caught. Thanks so much for supporting a great cause.

  50. says

    I think my life’s been touched by breast cancer by the support of everyone. There’s Susan who’s been supporting breast cancer for as long as I can remember but the whole idea of finding a cure and spreading awareness really touches me.

  51. Laura says

    I work for a medical device company that creates a machine for treating cancer. I’m constantly moved and inspired to work hard by the countless testimonials we hear from breast cancer patients who’ve been treated by our device.

  52. Janet says

    My life has been touched by the amazing effort by the countless men and women across the world who strive to create a brighter future for those affected by breast cancer.

  53. regina says

    This is a great thing you and kitchenaid and the others are doing. Be proud of yourself. Oh and that mixer is awesome!

  54. Nicole Dz says

    My mom had it years ago at the early stages and survived, but my aunt discovered she had it over this past winter, but she found it later on, and it spread to her lungs, back, and brain. So far she is still with us and we are blessed. My heart goes out to everyone who has been through this and affected by it.

  55. Jamie says

    I personally have fortunately never known anyone who suffered from breast cancer. But I know how much it can effect those who suffer from it and their family and friends as well.

  56. Sara W. says

    I’m lucky to say that it hasn’t surfaced in my family, but I’m inspired by stories of women who have beat it.

  57. Heather Meeks says

    My daughters best friends mom was diagnosed with cancer last year. It hit very close to home seeing what she had to go through. She is a survivor and I believe it is because of all the people who support the cure for breast cancer.

  58. Angela Y says

    My husband’s aunt died from breast cancer, and left behind 2 kids. I realized how life is precious.

  59. Jenny Schmidt says

    A sweet girl I knew from my early married days lost her battle with breast cancer. Her husband is struggling to find his way as a bachelor again. It would be so tough to lose your best friend like that! Love your blog.

  60. Pam Carrington says

    The recipe looks delicious – and I’m sure it is since the others I’ve tried from your site have been!

  61. Marina says

    My aunt was diagnosed with breast cancer about 10 years ago, but despite what the doctors told her she was able to survive and thrive. I support all the women who have been touched by breast cancer!

  62. Lisa says

    My only “experience” with breast cancer, and cancer in general, is my best friends mum. I never knew her, she died before I met my best friend but it devastated him and he worries that it will happen to me. That is my driving reason for supporting breast cancer. I don’t want him or anyone else to experience that pain.

  63. lana says

    my sons baby sitter was a breast cancer surviour. A very special lady was happy to have her in our lives

  64. Deanna S says

    My mother was a breast cancer survivor for 15 years and cancer took her life. My sister-in-law is a breast cancer survivor of 10 years. An Aunt was diagnosed last year. Thank you for doing this promotion….

  65. Bergen says

    A close family friend was diagnosed with breast cancer a few years ago and she beat it! She is an amazing woman and I look up to her so much

  66. Lirio says

    What a great giveaway! While my life hasn’t been touched by breast cancer, but my father did have Larynx cancer when I was younger and thankfully he is still with us!

  67. says

    My aunt, who I barely knew, lost her battle when I was a teenager. I have had my own scare, turned out to be a swollen blood vessel, but until I knew for sure, it was pins and needles time.

  68. says

    100% with you on this cause. Proud to say I’ve organized several fundraisers over the years. Awesome that KA is sponsoring this!

  69. Virginia says

    My life has not been touched but my friends life has. I just help her by being there for her like a support system.

  70. Sherrie Lee says

    You are awesome Carolyn! Great recipes and great causes!

    Thanks again for all you do!

    Sherrie Lee

  71. Taylor says

    Growing up, my best friends mom battled breast cancer twice. It was hard to see her go through that, but thankfully she made it through!

  72. Wanda says

    My husbands mom had breast cancer and had both breasts removed.She was told her cancer was in remission and that she had a clean bill of health.When she went home from having an MRI of the neck down she died from a brain aneurysm.He was only 12 years old.If they would have went ahead and did an MRI of her head she may have still been alive today.

  73. Valerie C. says

    Breast cancer took my mom when I was very young. It was heart breaking. I do everything I can to support this cause.

  74. Crystal says

    Female cancers have affected many of my family members. I even had the genetic testing for some of the markers. It was very scary. Unfortunately my mom and aunt lost their fights with cancer. My other aunt caught hers early due to routine screening and she’s been in remission for awhile now. And at work three of my friends and co-workers were diagnosed and are currently fighting (successfully).

    I am so thankful for those researcher that have made the successful strides that have help provide help for everyone.

  75. Pamela Shank says

    I am very lucky not to have had a family member with breast ca. I have had several friends and co workers and gone thru this terrible disease with them

  76. christine jessamine says

    my brother in laws mom passed away from breast cancer. she was a second mom to me growing up. wonderful, sweet, selfless woman.

  77. Kim says

    I never knew my maternal grandmother who died from breast cancer before I was born. She died when my mother was 12. I wish I could have known her — I’m told I look like her and I love to cook and bake like her. I wish, for my mom’s sake, that she did not lose her mother so young and especially that she didn’t have to be her caregiver at such a young age. I think my mom would have had a much easier and happier life.

  78. dina says

    i know too many people who’ve fought cancer, and some of them lost. what a great idea to raise money and awareness.

    and it’s berry season, so the ice cream will be very fresh.

  79. Lauren G. says

    Everyday in elementary school my recess “mom” would help me tuck my gloves under my coat sleeves so the snow wouldn’t get in. I usually stayed by her and talked with her almost everyday. I knee she had breast cancer and will never forget the day one of my teachers called to inform my parents she had passed away. I’m so glad to see your blog and KitchenAid team up with Susan G. Jome and many others around the globe to work together to fight breast cancer; this world does not need to lose any more wonderful and kind people like my recess “mom.”

  80. says

    I lost my dear, dear Auntie 4 years ago from breast cancer that had finally matastisized throughout her bady. She fought a long hard battle for 25 years.
    I was like her daughter as she never had children. I treasure every memory I have of her and miss her greatly.
    I feel blessed to have been able to care for her for the last three months of her life. And look forward to the day I get to see her again.

  81. Kristin says

    My life hasn’t yet been touched by breast cancer, but I have many friends who’s it’s touched, and that has definitely hurt my heart.

  82. De says

    I, too, have an aunt who is a breast cancer survivor. I am a colon cancer survivor and we must do everything we can to eradicate all cancer!! Cooking with this KitchenAid would just make me happy!! :)

  83. wendy says

    I lost my beautiful mom to breast cancer when I was 20 and she was just 50. I’m 46 now and realize just how young she was.

  84. Amber cheathem says

    I have two friends that are in remission from breast cancer and I lost a dear friend to breast cancer 7 years ago.

  85. Sarah Butler says

    What a great way to promote a cure. My daughter has cancer and I know how tough the diagnosis is on the entire family. Can’t wait to see cancer not exist anymore!

  86. Katie says

    My best friend had a double mastectomy at age 41. She was a trooper! She is now cancer free and we celebrated by running a race together. ❤️

  87. Heather Williams says

    Yes, sadly, breast cancer has touched my life as well. My maternal Grandma was diagnosed when I was just 12 yrs old & she transitioned when I was 17.
    On my husband’s side, we have our dear great aunt who is a longtime survivor!!
    Thank oh so very much for such an incredibly generous opportunity!!
    Many blessings~Heather<3~

    P.S. This matches my ice cream maker…love it!! :)

  88. Stephanie K says

    What a great cause! I currently am battling cancer and have found such strength and support from those around me through this difficult journey. Thank you for supporting this cause and spreading the word about it!

  89. Jodie Burns says

    First off, can I just say I am in love with that gorgeous pink mixer!!! Thank you kitchen aid for giving us this opportunity!!
    Second, cancer, breast or otherwise is absolutely devastating. While I’ve never personally dealt with it (family or friends) I’ve had issues with breast lumps and the instant fear that causes us horrible. My heart goes out to anyone that has fought this fight.

  90. Emily says

    My mom has survived lymphoma, skin, lung and brain cancer. Breast cancer is one that hasn’t struck my family, but we understand the struggle.

  91. Ani Baltayan says

    Such a great cause for a disease that affects so many. I lost a very dear friend to cancer. I still think about her often.

  92. Natalie J Vandenberghe says

    My dearest friend passed away in April from this dreadful disease. Hope a cure is found soon!

  93. Alisa says

    The recipe makes me wish I had frozen raspberries right NOW! And I love this is a healthy option you could actually make for someone battling cancer. From what I understand, sugar is not recommended for cancer patients because it feeds the bad cells. (obviously I’m no medical doctor but I don’t think any of us on your site will debate that low carb promotes better health!) Anyway, thanks much for the recipe and giveaway opportunity!

  94. Leigh Anne Borders says

    As a mother, daughter, friend, teacher, etc… cancer has impacted me in numerous ways. I have watched many pass away but I have also witnessed the power of miracles too!

  95. Amy says

    Lost my mom 22 years ago to breast cancer, while I was in high school.
    My cousin is currently battling breast cancer.

  96. Limari Colon says

    My stepmother was diagnosed with cancer and they removed one of her breast. She showed me that true beauty is not just phisical and how to live each day at your fullest potential.

  97. Kat says

    That recipe looks SO good. Would love to win the mixer…my grandma had breast cancer and her sister died of it. I appreciate what you’re doing to help the cause.

  98. Deb King says

    Close friend had breast cancer. Since it was hormonal, she chose immediate double mastectomy & full hysterectomy besides chemo & radiation. She is a nurse and believes in traditional treatment. Her reports have been good since 2008.

  99. EdiaKaran says

    A very dear person to me passed away from breast cancer, life is fragile but there is hope, and there is hope to find a cure.

  100. Lisa says

    Five aunts, all my mother’s sisters, have succumbed to the devastation of breast cancer. My mother has had two biopsies now and I just suffered through my third scare. Anything and everything we can do to raise awareness, support treatments, encourage and inspire those afflicted and above all help find a CURE is worth our efforts! THANK YOU for the recipe, for hosting and for the simple but yummy recipe!

  101. Jackie says

    The raspberry yogurt is delish. Thank you for the chance to win this beautiful mixer and support a wonderful cause!! Keep up the great work you do!!

  102. Ann Stewart says

    My great Aunt & my Grandmother on my mothers side had breast cancer. I try to eat healthy & avoid sugar & carbs. The recipe looks delicious.

  103. says

    Both my aunt and my grandmother on my mom’s side had cancer. Thankfully, they were able to beat it :-) I am going in for my first mammogram (I’m 38) next week because my doctor thinks she may have found something. Fingers crossed for a clean bill of health. Ilove your recipes. They always turn out as delicious as they look. Thank you for all that you do!

    • Carolyn says

      My fingers are crossed for you. I have had several ultrasounds on my breasts because I’ve caught lumps. But they’ve all been nothing, I hope it will be the same for you.

  104. Kathleen says

    This looks delicious and for such a great cause. I am a 4 year colon cancer survivor, lost my mother and grandfather to lung cancer and have had a benign tumor removed from my breast. During chemo met many lovely women fighting breast cancer. Any cancer is a good cause, but so many women have to deal with breast cancer. Can not wait to try the raspberry yogurt!

  105. Ingrid says

    I have a family history, with both losses and survivors. This is a great way to get people together for a good cause.

  106. Danielle says

    My dad’s mother died of breast cancer. My family are the biggest supporters of Susan Komen and everything related to breast cancer.

  107. Wanda says

    Breast cancer touched my family’s life when my grandmother was diagnosed over 50 years ago. I will always remember the effects of her radical mastectomy and am so thankful less invasive treatments have been developed.

  108. Holly Ellerton says

    Thank you for the give away! And thank you for supporting breast cancer research. Every little bit will help, and I am very thankful to all those who support this cause.

  109. Laurie L says

    My mom is a survivor, my aunt on my mom’s side is a survivor, but we lost my aunt on my dad’s side to this horrible cancer. I have had friends in their 20’s diagnosed with this. I don’t think you are ever too young to get checked out. Earliest detection is best and if your doctor argues you’re too young to worry- get it anyways.

  110. Maria Malaveci says

    A friend of the family was diagnosed this year and also my cousins
    wife as well. They are both ok but it was a very scary time. I had my first mammogram this year.

  111. Kera says

    I know multiple women who have had breast cancer that have beaten it and some women who were not able to. It is a tragic thing and finding the cure is something that needs to be done to help us women and women of the future.

  112. Kimberly Barnett says

    Thankfully my family and I have been lucky not to have been personally touched by Breast Cancer. My thoughts and prayers to all those affected.

  113. Linda Franks says

    My grandmother had a mastectomy before my birth or shortly thereafter. I remember her telling me about the surgery and all the tissue and muscle they cut away. Of course, this was at a time before all the wonderful diagnostic tools and interventive procedures we have now. I was born 1949. It must have been hard on my mom and my grandmother. Grandma was alone at the time. Now I have several friends that have endured and survived.

  114. Jody Scott says

    Breast cancer has been in my life through friendships and family. Some have died, some have survived.

  115. Jeanne says

    I have two sisters-in -laws-on different sides-have had breast cancers, one uncle and a bestie friend–that in just close –doesn’t count those who I just know–time for it to stop!

  116. Craig says

    My father had breast cancer later on in life and while he has since passed from other problems, he beat it.

  117. Blessie Nelson says

    Working in the oncology field for the past many years, I face many dimensions of women who go through the ordeal of dealing with breast cancer. Their true strength and weaknesses come out during the treatment process and I have learned to roll with the flow and identify as they respond to pain, desperation, hope, joy, success and recovery and for some hopelessness, disappointment, bitterness and resentment. Watching them go through the fire makes me want organisations like kitchenaid and susan komen to push forward and make breast cancer a beatable and hopeful event.

  118. Kelly Hughes says

    My best friend’s sister was diagnosed at age 23, went through a double mastectomy, and now is cancer free! But it’s so important to be aware that it can strike at ANY age!

  119. Betty Anne says

    You are right. We have all lost dear friends and family members to cancer. What a beautiful dessert and mixer!!

  120. gena says

    My mom had a mastectomy in 2007. She is cancer free today. My mom is such a strong woman and I adore her with all my heart! She’s been such a good role model!! Love her!!

  121. Joyce says

    My sister had breast cancer in 1994 but, after chemo and radiation, has been cancer free since then. We need a cure and need it now! The ice cream looks delish.

  122. Mirhanda says

    My mom and my aunt had breast cancer. My mom had it twice ~20 years apart. Two different types of cancer, not a recurrence of the first one.

  123. Pam says

    I was diagnosed with early stage 1 breast cancer and had a lumpectomy in May. Am getting ready to start radiation followed by 5 years of hormone therapy. My long-term prognosis is excellent, for which I am extremely grateful and thank God every day. And I sure would love to win that gorgeous KitchenAid!

  124. Barbara Linder says

    I have three friends, nurses that I work with, and a niece who are breast cancer survivors, and one who did not survive….. I will do all i can to educate my friends, relatives, and patients on the signs of breast cancer and the importance of regular self/MD exams!

  125. shawna says

    I had an aunt who wasn’t diagnosed until she was stage 4 even though she going to the doctor asking about the lumps in her breasts. She passed a few months later. Just proves YOU have to advocate for yourself, only you know your body. If your doctor won’t listen, go to a different one. This is such a great cause!

  126. Mariaelena says

    I love hearing stories of people being open about their experiences because I’m sure it helps other people who have been affected by it and they know they have support out there.

  127. Yvonne says


    I will definitely try this frozen yogurt recipe. The mixer is truly beautiful and I would love to win it!

  128. Sandy says

    We have been fortunate in our family, but a very large number of women at work have battked and won due to early detection.

  129. patricia says

    Can hardly wait to try this frozen yogurt, it looks delicious! I lost a mother-in-law to cancer, so appreciate the cause for awareness of cancer.

  130. Sarah Miech says

    I do not have anyone in my family that has suffered from breast cancer, but as a nurse, I see families struggle with it every day, and I share their pain and heartache. I hope that a cure can be found to save all of those affected from the struggle of dealing with this horrible disease.

  131. Kris in Alaska says

    I had an aunt die from breast cancer in the late 70’s before hardly anything was known about it. She didn’t tell anyone and she was a nurse! How far we’ve come since then!

  132. Sarah Morgan says

    I have never lost a member of my family to breast cancer, but have to other types of cancer. Cancer is bad no matter the type and anything I can do to help I will.

  133. Arlene says

    Although I haven’t lived breast cancer in my family we’ve lived some other cancers, so we are all in the same boat of love and life of our beloved ones. Hope is all the way there!

  134. Rachel says

    My great aunt died of breast cancer. My grandma was a survior, and passed from old age at 92. Always conscious of it being in the family. Hope and pray for a cure.

  135. kristina says

    A family friend was diagnosed with breast cancer and had to have a surgery fast and got her breast cut off .

  136. Angie Jerde says

    I don’t have anyone in my family with breat cancer but I do work in the medical field. I do have patients that have or had breast cancer and they are so strong!

  137. Laura Sheridan says

    Both of my grandmothers had breast cancer. It is always on my radar. So glad you are helping!

  138. says

    My grandma lost her battle to breast cancer when I was 11. I wish I had more time to get to know her as an adult; My mom tells me we’re a lot alike and we would have gotten along splendidly.

  139. says

    My mom was diagnosed with breast cancer in January of 2013. She is a fighter and has been done with treatment. Just a few months later, we ran our first half-marathon together – she is my inspiration.

  140. Gerri says

    I have dear friends with breast cancer. Sadly true how few of us haven’t been touched by this dreaded disease. As a kid, a friend lost her mother to it. I’ve never forgotten how devastating it was to her.

    Hard to decide which it prettier–your dessert or the raspberry Kitchen Aid. Happily I can get my hands & mouth on your mouthwatering raspberry delight right away.

    Thank you for being part of Cooks For The Cure.

  141. Natalie says

    My grandma was diagnosed with breast cancer 10 years ago. She underwent chemo and has been cancer free ever since then.

  142. Jamie Dunn says

    What a great thing for kitchenaid to organize!
    My mother had breast cancer a few years ago but gratefully the treatments and surgery went as well as hoped :)

  143. says

    My mom is a breast cancer survivor. We also have family friends and colleagues who’ve been diagnosed with various stages of breast cancer. Thank you so much for helping to raise awareness for such a great cause!

  144. Mearced says

    Yes, I’ve had way too many friends and family with breast cancer; but the incredible thing is that many of them have gone through it and made it out the other side and are now living normal lives.

    Cool what Kitchen-Aide is doing and you. Wild berries are all over right now so the recipe is timely too! Some day I’ll own a mixer like that … sigh!

  145. Rebecca Parsons says

    My aunt passed away from Breast cancer at the age of 40. She left behind 3 boys who miss her everyday. Such a sad and terrible way to go. I pray for a cure everyday.

  146. Mary Beth Elderton says

    We have been very fortunate not to have breast cancer,however, my mother had cervical cancer. Devastating.

  147. Kathy J says

    I’d love to win and host a party in celebration and in memory of all my friends and family who have had their lives impacted by breast cancer.

  148. Constance Person says

    I lost my godmother to breast cancer, several years ago. And 2 friends, both mothers of children under 10, have just received diagnoses. I will do anything I can to help them through this.

  149. Joyce Dean says

    Hi! The yogurt looks amazing!

    My mom is a 15+ year survivor. I walked in the 3Day event about 10 years ago. It was amazing!

  150. whitney says

    I was reading the looking at the recipe when I noticed the cause behind it and it touch ed me. There are so many ways to help those in need. I find out the biggest way is to stand in the gap with faith where there faith might be gone. I have seen first hand what cancer can do to someone. I know where I am needed the most is being someone to a person battling, that is living life in joy, peace, gentleness And kindness. I am a believer in Christ Jesus I know He heal. So overall believing they will overcome gives them hope, where they may feel there is none. Blessings to all.

  151. Jennifer M says

    Love discovering awesome new blogs! Thank you for participating in this giveaway and more importantly for supporting the fight against breast cancer!

  152. Katie Rose says

    I never really knew my grandmother because she died of breast cancer when I was around 3, but we recently lost my Aunt Susan as well. She died 2 years ago right before her son’s wedding, and right around when I discovered I was pregnant with my third child. I can’t even finish my thoughts about her here right now because thinking about how much we miss her still hurts too much.

  153. Barbara Adams says

    We’ve lost some really wonderful friends and family, way too soon. We struggle to maintain their values and integrity without their guiding hand.

  154. Samantha Plotkin says

    Luckily, no one in my immediate circle has had an issue with breast cancer. However, I do support the cause!

  155. Andrea Ryan says

    I am thankful that no one in my family has been diagnosed with breast cancer but I do know woman (coworkers, classmates, and clients) that have suffered from breast cancer. I think it’s wonderful that Susan G. Komen®, KitchenAid, & All Day I Dream About Food have partnered to raise awareness and funds to support the fight against breast cancer.

  156. Carly D. says

    My mom has had a few breast cancer scares so it has really opened my eyes! Thanks for the giveaway and raising awareness!

  157. Kasey says

    Love this! My kids love making homemade ice cream and I KNOW they’ll love this…plus it’s healthier!
    Kudos to you for supporting such an awesome cause in such a “sweet” way 😉

  158. Kim says

    My aunt, my godmother, has had breast cancer twice. The first time I was too little to remember, but the second time I remember how tough she was working even through her treatments. She’s a strong woman that I admire.

  159. Sheila says

    This is a great cause. Few are the families untouched by breast cancer. Women of all ages can and are affected, and their families are affected along with them. Monthly self-exams and yearly mammograms are a must. Even with this, many women are casualties. My father’s sister died a painful death from breast cancer despite years of clean mammograms, and her daughter-in-law (my cousin’s wife) is a breast cancer survivor thanks in part to her monthly self-exam. On my mother’s side, I have several cousins afflicted with the breast-cancer gene, BCRA. One of them has had a prophylactic mastectomy. Shower cards about how to conduct a monthly self-exam and what to look for are available from many organizations, including Hadassah. This is a cause that unites women world-wide.

  160. norma says

    I have a cousin on both my fathers and mothers side that have both had cancer in both breasts. I also have a aunt, although not blood related, that has had breast cancer.

  161. Stacy Turk says

    What a great cause! Love, love, love raspberry!! The color AND flavor!! Thanks for all the great recipes!!

  162. Moe88 says

    I work in a Cancer Center with a lot of breast cancer patients and also have a friend and a family member who passed away from cancer.

  163. Megan says

    I would first like to thank you for the amount of time and effort you put towards sharing your healthy lifestyle and recipes!! I LOVE your recipes and I love even more the stories that go with each and every one of them :-) Not only is my mother currently battling breast cancer, but I am also a nurse and I work with affected women and their families every day. I fight for the cause in every way that I can and I’m so pleased to help your promotion to this cause! A day does not go by that I do not find personal inspiration from you and your followers and I thank you for that!!!

  164. Rosa R. says

    Both of my grandmothers battled breastfeeding cancer and beat it. I know it is beatable, but I can’t help but feel the fear of whether or not my mother and sister will have to go through the same fight.

  165. Deanna S says

    Thanks for this giveaway, I’ve lost 3 members to cancer & know of 2 more just diagnosed. Would love to win this as a reminder of all the loves we have lost to cancer. :)

  166. Leslie says

    My dear grandma is a breast cancer survivor. She’s lost some of her own family to breast cancer, but we’re so thankful that she’s come through and is still here with us.

  167. Mary says

    My mom has 2 different types of breast cancer, but her will to live kept her going, even when the doctor told her (at the first diagnosis of an aggressive cancer) that she needed to go home and prepare to die; she would be gone in weeks. 25 years later, she was diagnosed with the second type, but no action was taken as she was already in end stage renal disease. Always keep your will to live!

  168. Audrey H. says

    My sister was diagnosed and treated for breast cancer. You never really think it’ll hit so close to home, its pretty scary. The outlook is good so far.

  169. Scarlett says

    I’ve only known one person affected by breast cancer, and thank goodness she’s in remission now :)
    Prayers and love to those who haven’t been so lucky. Thanks Carolyn for supporting this cause!
