Ughhhhhh, it's a vicious circle, can't sleep at 3 am, exhausted by 10 am. So what does a good blogging Mema do when she can't sleep? Why blog a contest of course.
Today I'd like to tell you about the Pillsbury Bake Off Contest's new You Be the Judge! voting. For the first time in the contest’s 60-year history, you can help determine 10 recipes among the final 100 that will compete for the $1 million grand prize!
How does the You Be the Judge! voting work? Judges will select 20 recipes to be placed online at www.bakeoff.com in pairs for a period of two weeks for each pair. You can vote for your favorite recipe in each pair. The recipe from each pair that wins the most votes will earn a spot in the final competition, April 11-13, 2010, in Orlando, Florida. Voting is limited to one vote per person per each pair of recipes. Voters must be registered members of www.pillsbury.com and 18 years of age or older as of May 1, 2009, to participate.
The first pair of recipes was posted on May 14, 2009 and a new pair of recipes will be posted every two weeks (namely, May 28, June 11, June 25, July 9, July 23, August 6, August 20, September 3 and September 17, 2009). The voting period for the tenth and final pair of recipes will close at 11:59AM CDT on October 1, 2009. Visit www.bakeoff.com for the official rules.
In celebration of the 44th Pillsbury Bake Off, the wonderful people at MyBlogSpark have offered to send TWO lucky readers a superdedooper, sparky prize pack that includes a Bake-Off® Recipes magazine and a Pillsbury Doughboy giggle doll. Guaranteed to make you giggle and hopefully induce sleep.
