25 Pies in 25 Days (or the Great Pie bake off) Season 2!
When I started this blog the first thing I did was this. I had such a great time making all of those pies that I wanted to do it again this year, but there was one thing about it I didn’t like. A majority of the recipes I got were from their (allrecipes) sponsors and not from at home bakers. So this year I wanted to have a little competition and open it up to anyone who wanted to submit a recipe. You do not have to be a blogger to participate, but if you’re not already please become a Follower so you can watch all the pie fun come November! Here is how it’s going to work: starting November 1st I will bake a new pie recipe every day until Thanksgiving (so this year there will only really be 24 pies). Every day I will actually be making pies and giving them an out of 5 stars rating. Pies will be judged 75 % on taste, 20 % on ease of preparation and 5% on appearance. So submit your best. Also I will be posting the recipe so if you have a secret family recipe you don’t want posted then pick something else. I will also be spotlighting you and /or your blog so I’ll need a paragraph about you and your pie recipe. At the end of that time I will announce the top 3 pies as determined by an impartial judging panel. And then crown a Grand Champion Queen on King of pies for an entire year. I’ll have a fun button for you to post on your blog declaring you the king or queen of pies. The Top Pie will also take home a $25.00 gift certificate. You may submit more than one recipe but I might not use more than one of them if I get more than 24 submissions. So please number them so I know which is your first submission and so on. The deadline for submitting a recipe is October 31st. I know it seems far away but hopefully I’ll get 24 pie submissions by then. FINGERS CROSSED. If you want to help then spread the word!! you can’t have a competition without competitors. The more the merrier. Submit recipes and blurbs to
Thanks everyone! I can’t wait to get started!!
