MyBlogSpark and the 45th Annual Pillsbury Bake Off = A Giveaway!

This giveaway is sponsored by MyBlogSpark and Pillsbury.

I love to cook! It's one of my favorite hobbies right behind collecting cookbooks and ahead of couponing. My most treasured cookbook is a family cookbook from my Mammaw's side of the family. It's full of our favorite family recipes. I love to experiment with new recipes too and tweaking them for my families tastes. I've never been brave enough to put them to the test of entering a contest (but you can view a few of them here). Kudos to all those brave souls that send their recipes in to Pillsbury for the annual Bake Off!

This year is the 45th  Annual Pillsbury Bake Off! Enter your recipe and you could win $1 MILLION!!!
Think you might have the winning recipe? Head over to the Bake Off to enter!  Here are the basic guidelines from the Pillsbury website:
