Bloggy Day & another contest!

I don't think either Ebby or I took a single non-food-related photo on our Bloggy Cooking Day this past Saturday. We cooked and baked an insane amount of treats and had more than a dozen women over to help us eat everything. It was a huge success and a ton of fun! We will definitely do another one of these soon (with my gracious husband's permission, of course). And we will get all of our Bloggy Day recipes posted, but it might take us a few weeks. Chantal and Joan, your appetizer recipes turned out amazing!

Now for another contest!

This one will be super easy. Leave a comment on this post, saying anything at all, and we will pick two random commenters as the winners (using Please include your blog address if you would like for us to provide a link when we announce the winners.

You can thank my sister because she has kindly offered to take care of the prizes for this contest. She will send each of our two winners her favorite scented 22-oz. jar candle from Colonial Candles. Each candle is a $24.99 value.

The contest starts now and ends at midnight on February 20th. Good luck!

Appetizer recipe contest winners!

Ebby and I decided on the following two recipes as the winners of our appetizer recipe contest!

Western potato rounds - submitted by Joan H.

Buffalo sliders with cherry salsa - submitted by Chantal

Congrats, Joan and Chantal! If you could each send us your mailing address (via the Contact Pip & Ebby button on right), we will get Ebby's favorite microplane grater in the mail to each of you! Also, please provide your blog info if you want us to link to it in the posts we create that will detail your recipes.

We will add these recipes to our list of things to make for our big Bloggy Day this coming Saturday! Thanks!!

Appetizer recipe contest!

Ebby and I have a Bloggy Day coming up, which means we are going to cook massive amounts of food in one day for the purpose of sharing recipes and photos on this blog. We will be hosting a few ladies at my house later that evening to share our newly-created goodies with them.

We thought it would be fun to create one of YOUR favorite appetizer recipes that day to share with our guests. In fact, why don't we make it TWO of you! We will feature both recipes on our blog and give each winner full credit for the recipe. We will also send each winner one of Ebby's favorite kitchen utensils, a microplane grater!

We are looking for delicious appetizers that will please our guests and that will be a good addition to our blog. Perhaps something unlike anything we currently have here on our blog? Or something we already have, but better? Ebby and I will read through all submissions and choose the two we agree on to be the winners.

Either leave a comment on this post with the full recipe or send it to us in an email (subject: appetizer contest) via the Contact Pip & Ebby button on the right side of your screen.

Contest ends February 5th, 2011, at midnight.

Exciting! We can't wait to read through your recipes!
