    I am sending in an entry to a magazine recipe contest today, and I wondered how many of you have tried recipe contests ...

    My wife won second place in the spam contest at the Minnesota State Fair a few years ago. They told her she probably would have won 1st but it didn't look nice enough. Something to keep in mind. Good luck

    How can a person possibly make Spam look good?
    (Cover it with whipped cream?)

    I would tell you but then I'd have to kill you.














    (It's for Better Homes & Garden's - "creative cornbread" category, which will be published in May. I'm hopin' for the $400 big payoff!!!!! My prototypes were pretty popular at my offices, and a big shot Boston lawyer who was here for a meeting requested some to be FedEx'd to him yesterday, which I did - hey, maybe I should have charged him $400!)

    Quote:It was brocolli and cheese spam cream soup. Just a little garnish would have done it.

    UPDATE: Friday January 23


    I just got some paperwork from Better Homes & Gardens magazine. They want ownership rights to my recipe!
    I won in the "Honor Roll" category, which earns me $50 and my name listed in tiny type on an obscure page in the May issue.


    Hoorah!
