Dog Days of Summer = PRIZES!!!

It's time to make some new friends by enticing you into a contest which is being hosted by Shannon at Rocks In My Dryer.

Click on the Dog Days of Summer icon on my sidebar to find out more about this great contest!!!

WELCOME to all of you who have visited my site in order to enter my contest. My prize is something I am making. I have no picture to show you because it's not finished yet. But what I'm working on is a collection of recipes which will be in book form for you to enjoy.

F.Y.I. . . I love to bake and cook. It's a passion of mine and I'm often asked for recipes of dishes and desserts I bring to functions for family and friends. Kimmy's Collection of Recipes will be just that . . . a collection of sought-out recipes plus some of my own personal favorites.

Included in my Collection will be a recipe for Caramel Apple Cheesecake, Baked Corn, Cottage Cheese Souffle Salad, The Best Ever Chocolate Chip Cookies, Crusty Brownies, Secret-Ingredient Pancakes, Sweet and Sticky Bacon, and a whole lot more!

Have I piqued your interest?


If you would like to win this prize, please leave me a comment, providing me with YOUR NAME AND E-MAIL ADDRESS, so that if you win, I have a way to contact you. I will post the name of my winner on Saturday morning.

My contest is open to anyone living in North America, whether you are a blogger or not. I will be drawing for my prize winner this Friday, July 27, 2007 at 7:00 p.m. Central Standard Time. (You have until 6:59 p.m. CST to enter).

I look forward to meeting you all and hope you will enter my contest!!!

UPDATE!!!!
July 25, 2007

I've been working hard at creating my cookbook for the winner of my bloggy prize contest!


I am having so much fun doing this!

Here's a sneak peak:


The really cool thing about my recipe book is that the recipes are completely protected by plastic, and the book is capable of standing upright! All by itself! So, when you're in the kitchen cooking and baking, the recipes won't be damaged by food splatter, and you will have an easier time following the recipes because of the handy-dandy stand-up mechanism.

Did I mention that I'm loving this? Oh yeah. I did. But it's so fun! It's always been a goal of mine to create my very own cookbook, and now it's becoming a reality! I can hardly wait to give it away . . .

Please remember to leave me your e-mail address with your comment. If you have a blog, you need to provide access to your User Profile in order for me to link back to your blog. There are some entries that I will not be able to include in the draw due to the fact that I have no way of linking back to a blog or e-mail. I'm sad about this, but in Bloggerville, it's hard to trace back links if they're not provided. Thanks!!!!

Michelle said...

Are you really from Saskatoon where your "weather forecast" is from? That is where we are from originally! That is so cool. I have never found another blogger from back home. As for the recipes, I think that is a great idea. I have started collecting all of my favourite recipes together with the hopes of passing them on to my kids when they move away from home. I am always looking to try something new.

Kimmy said...

Michelle: I'm not from Saskatoon, but I have lived there in the past and it's the nearest city to our acreage, so that's why the weather comes from there. I really hope you read this comment, because I need to ask you to send me an e-mail address so that I can contact you if you win! I'd be so sad if your name was pulled and I had no way of advising you of your winnings!
