Are you ready to ditch the store-bought staples in your fridge and pantry? Then tune in to the brand-new KitchenAid video series DIY vs. Buy, where I’m simplifying your grocery list with recipes and tips for homemade takes on everyday essentials.

The 5-part video series features step-by-step instructions for putting your favourite KitchenAid appliances to work to create mealtime mainstays, including:

Homemade Pasta

Homemade Pesto

Homemade Peanut Butter

Homemade Potato Chips

Homemade Granola Bars

Homemade pasta is a breeze with the KitchenAid® Pasta Roller & Cutter Set, which attaches conveniently to any size Stand Mixer. With the fresh pasta in motion, you can turn to the KitchenAid®5-Speed Diamond Blender for all of your pasta sauce needs, including fresh basil pesto. Then it’s time to tackle all those store-bought snacks with the KitchenAid® Pro Line® Series 16-Cup Food Processor, which whips up homemade peanut butter and slices homemade potato chips in minutes. And last but not least, preheat the KitchenAid® Double Wall Oven for chewy chocolate chip granola bars.

Check out the new KitchenAid DIY vs. Buy video series below and share your homemade takes on pasta, pesto, peanut butter, potato chips and granola bars on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram with the hashtag DIYvsBuy (#DIYvsBuy). We can’t wait to see what you DIY versus buy!
