NOTE: This has evolved into a Blog Event, rather than just a giveaway! With over 20,000 recipes to choose from it should take us quite a while to get through it :) Please join us! This month’s event ends tomorrow and the round up will be posted before the end of the month. For more info on how to join us, click here!
The fine folks at Taste of Home have generously donated this fabulous hardbound cookbook FILLED with delicious taste tested recipes. If you are like me, you know exactly who Taste of Home is and love their stuff! I have this cookbook here and am happy to report it’s delicious and have already made a recipe from it. Be sure to check the sidebar for the contest Taste of Home is hosting as well! Now on with ours…
Cooking with Alicia & Annie
Alicia & Annie need your help!
So who are Alicia and Annie? Well you see, I am doing some work for a couple of recipe sites, AliciasRecipes.com and AnniesRecipes.com that have asked that I spruce them up by testing out their recipes and adding some fabulous photos. The recipes in these two websites were compiled and entered by a woman who had collected them over many years.
The sites as you see them now are in their original form, so who better than the fabulous cooks and bakers of the blogging world to help improve their look! We see gorgeous photos of scrumptious recipes everyday on various blogs. Why not try some new recipes and be entered to win a fun prize while doing so? So while I do a little website redesign planning, I can’t wait to see your entries!
Here are the contest details:
Can you help us spread the word? We’d love to get this contest out to as many bloggers as we can! If you’d like to help you can upload this image to your sidebar and link it to this post. Thanks much!
NOTE: IF you don’t have a blog, you can post your results on the FC message boards here
Once you have made the recipe, whether it worked or bombed, post your results (including any important comments that may be relevant to the recipe) and photos on your blog. Please use “Cooking with Alicia & Annie” in your blog post title along with the recipe name. [You can see an example post here.] If you prepare more than one recipe, you may post them all in one blog post or separate posts, however you prefer.
Next, come back here and post a comment stating that you have made your recipe, please include the title of the recipe and a link to your blog post. IF you choose more than one recipe, be sure to post SEPARATE comments for each recipe. Each recipe that you make grants you an individual entry in the giveaway! SO if you make three recipes, you should post three comments here.
The winner of the Taste of Home Cookbook will be chosen at random via Random.org. Winner will be posted here, so you may want to subscribe to follow up comments as well.
