Contest: We Have Winners!

First Prize- organ not included!
We have two winners!  Rebecca is the first prize winner and she'll receive two jars each of Bonne Maman Apricot Preserves and Redcurrant Jelly, as well as copies of The Cooking of Germany and Russian Cooking, from the Foods of the World series, to add to her collection.  Rebecca has served as an unofficial blog recipe tester for quite some time now and has been instrumental in helping me feel like I'm not wasting my time posting all these eccentric recipes.  We've known each other for almost six years and I couldn't ask for a better friend.

Rebecca's Sachertorte
The second prize goes to Laura from Pragmatic Attic, whom I've just "met" through our blogs.  Laura's joconde imprime was fabulous, by the way, you should take a look at it.  Laura will receive a jar of Bonne Maman Apricot Preserves and Redcurrant Jelly.  Bonne Maman is a high-fructose-corn-syrup-free brand from France.  I actually ordered the Apricot Preserves and Redcurrant Jelly online from World Finer Foods, because I couldn't find either here in Wichita, so I'm sharing the wealth!  I'll post some recipes using both in the coming months.  Laura- If you would just leave a comment with your shipping address, I get your prize mailed out to you.  I'll leave the comment unposted so your address isn't all over the internet.

I would like to extend a huge thank you to both Rebecca and Laura who took the time out of their busy schedules to participate.  It means the world to me.

I also need to thank Laura for giving me a Stylish Blogger Award.  It's my first blog award to go with my first contest!  I'm supposed to talk about myself and pass the award on to other bloggers.  I haven't decided yet, but I wanted to go ahead and thank Laura and direct all you dear readers to her blog.

  2. By the way, if I just told you the name of my cat, I am sorry, someone just asked me and I thought it was you. I'm not just really obsessed with my cat...

  3. No worries, Carys- I didn't think you were a crazy cat lady. Say "hi" to Bob from me--it's nice to make his acquaintance. :-)
