Our 2nd Creative Recipe Contest Starts NOW!

Hey you guyeeeees!

So today is the day!

Today Kristan at Confessions of a Cookbook Queen and I are challenging YOU!

It’s our 2nd Creative Recipe Contest and this time around it’s all about adaptations!


We asked you a few weeks ago to browse through our recipes and pick one that you like, but thought could be switched up a little bit…and today is the day for you to share with us what you made!  Read the FULL EXPLANATION HERE.

Now through Friday, August 2nd, you can come back to this post and using the link up widget at the bottom, provide us with an image and a link back to your recipe!

We have no limit or rules on how many ingredients you change or how big of an adaptation it is…but just know this is a “CREATIVE” challenge, so adding a little more vanilla to one of our recipes most likely won’t win.  Just sayin.


HOW TO ENTER (read carefully!):

If you have a blog then that’s great, go ahead and enter in the URL in the link-up widget at the bottom.

Non-bloggers can join THIS FLICKr GROUP where you can upload a picture of your entry and provide the recipe in the comments!  Use THIS as an example. (Kristan uploaded a picture of her cake and provided the recipe.  She actually provided a partial recipe, just so you get the idea, but you need to have the full recipe there!)

Both bloggers and non-blogger MUST have this disclaimer written into your post or at the bottom of your recipe: I am entering this {title of your recipe} in the Creative Recipe Contest hosted by Confessions of a Cookbook Queen and Cookies and Cups!“)

AND you must include an “adapted from” disclaimer at the bottom of the recipe with a link back to the recipe you are adapting.  This is especially important because we need to know what recipe you are putting your won twist on!


So that’s it!


Again, let’s discuss what you can win…

1st place ~ KitchenAid® will be providing you a GORGEOUS  KitchenAid® Artisan® Series 5-Quart Tilt Head Stand Mixer in Crystal Blue. SO pretty! (Retail Value $349.99)

2nd place ~ KitchenAid® 5 Speed Blender in Crystal Blue (Retail Value $99.99)

3rd place ~ The super handy KitchenAid® 5-Speed Ultra Power Hand Mixer in Crystal Blue (Retail Value $49.99)


Here’s the link up widget.  It’s easy!

We wish you TONS of luck and are SO SO excited to see your creations!!

*KitchenAid is providing the Stand Mixer prize for our first place winner, but winner selections and opinions are all our own!

This contest is open to US residents only
