Cooking with Alicia & Annie
Cookbook Giveaway!

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, and 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!

Choose any recipe(s) you would like to try from either website: OR
