CreateYourOwnCookbook Contest

The season of gift giving has begun! The holidays can be an incredibly stressful time of year for everybody, me included. Rachel my running buddy said it best "Guests coming and going, meals to make, parties to go to, gifts to buy, appearances to make… For me anyway, it will be MY GOAL to focus on the fun. What makes us happy during the holidays is what we are going to do." I want to focus on the FUN too, and it is time to start shopping!!! Well with all the hustle and bustle why not be creative and work on your present straight from home,?

Does Aunt Suzie have some great secret recipes? What about Grandma Nancy? Why don’t put together a cookbook full of all your family’s best recipes! Or even better you can put a cookbook together of your own recipes that your family has been DYING to get there hands on! I know that a lot of you are some great cooks and have a lot of wonderful ideas to share with the world. What better gift then the gift of recipes made with love.

CreateMyCookbook is a place where customers are able to create the best cookbook they will ever own. They make creating professional quality printed cookbooks easier using their web based book designer. “Your recipes, Your photos, Your cookbook.” Check out there website. I know that I would love to do this for my family!

About the Company
The company was founded in 2007 to provide people a better way to preserve those treasured family recipes.


How about a CreateMyCookbook gift certificate to make your very own cookbook for free!!! They are providing me with gift certificate for one hard back cookbook shipped within the continental US. ($45 gift certificate value). If you are interested here is how you can enter.

Please send me your favorite holiday recipe and include a picture to me at, marie.bobbi@gmail.com. Here’s what the judge will look for, creativeness, deliciousness, and originality. I know there are a lot of good cooks out there so this will be hard!

This contest will go through December 7th at 12am pacific time.

Get your ideas in today!!! I am off to go to kickboxing and then to shop till I drop:)
